you can only fail so hard...

i cant believe people was comparing this to god of war

FLOP!

Somebody should email all of these 5's to Flip Flop Gaymer. After all, they DID say Ninja Blade was going to outdo God of War and Ninja Gaiden.

I dont care what Gametrailers has to say, the demo was great fun!

MasFlowKiller3792d ago

am actually surprise they game such a low score to a 360 exclusive, i guess that mean i have to reevaluate everything i though is real, huh.

oh well,

the game is not that bad base on the demo, at least a solid 7.1 or something but that just me, i guess i would have to play the entire game before anything.

still shock gametrailers gave a 360 exclusive such a low score, does this mean their trying to become a legitimate gaming site?

AlternativeChaos3792d ago

Yeah am in shock too, gametrailers has always given irrational scores when it come to 360 exclusives so this does not make compute to at all, i want to see wat angle their working now

Grooski3792d ago

You must've played a different demo to me - it was awful.

Nothing but QTEs and a big hairy spider.

360FanLord3792d ago

i never got gametrailer myself and its especially weird to see them gave a 360 exclusive a low score, i wonder wats up?

does anyone have any idea?

i mean they been pretty anal about which console they prefer, and to see them talk so sourly about a 360 exclusive is something i never though i would ever see while i play videogames.

The excuses never stop. Oh, now that the conspiracy theorists have egg on their face it's suddenly does not compute.

The only thing irrational were the cry baby PS3 fanboys who cried foul everytime a 360 game scored well or outscored an inferior PS3 port.

GUNS N SWORDS3792d ago

even with all these opinions all up in my face i still like the game and see no problem with it.

come on even, if it was aaa ps3 gamers would still not get it, gears and halo are aaa (and look at what kind of treatment those games get here at n4g.)

The difference is that Quantic Dream and Sony Santa Monica know how to properly implement QTE sequences. I love how you had to bring Heavy Rain into this though, a game that has been winning over even the harshest critics since it was first revealed in 2005. You even changed your Ninja Gaiden avatar. Feeling bitter? :)

(like i need to hear this)

phosphor1123792d ago

But because its a 360 exclusive, he had to bump it up above 5...lol jk.. Seriously though, is it just me or does that also look ALOT like Heavenly Sword?...Sword that drains health...Speed (tiny blades), Average, and Heavy (big fat blade)...is it just me?..I mean..they COULD have atLEAST mentioned it..

sonarus3792d ago

graphics = crap
gameplay = ripoff and has too much QTE's
story = crap

What can you really say stands out in this game?
It got what it deserved as far as i'm concerned

Omegasyde3792d ago

-Both games have:
-Ninja walk on walls
-Sword that eats health
-Tokyo being taken over, fighting in the streets to get to get to central hub.
-Dash attack combo's
-Family turns evil.

All it needs is a a red scarf.

GUNS N SWORDS3792d ago (Edited 3791d ago )

Ghost of Sparta it's time to finally come out of the closet, its dark in there and you need to change your diapers cause your stinking the place up :)

... that GT favor the 360? 2008 they gave more 9+ awards to PS3 games than 360 games... Face it they are not as bias as you want to believe... 2008 is proof

Why o why3791d ago (Edited 3791d ago )

I do hear you but i still cant forget some of the stunts they've pulled over the last two years. Their bias wasn't always about review scores. People are simplifying ps3 fans dislike of them to review scores alone but sorry maybe you/people need reminding of their practices from their site and staff. Bias is not meant to be worn on you sleeve or it would be too obvious. Its the other little things they do plus the fact that they are affiliated with one of the major players this gen that give me the feeling of bias. Some sites change 'ala gamespot'.

Its peculiar that we can all agree that gamespot had incentives to give 'better' scores and whatever but because we dont have irrefutable proof, like the kane n lynch debacle, we cant see the reasons why bias is widespread or even possible.

'Face it they are not as bias as you want to believe... 2008 is proof' the only proof there is that they felt the ps3 had better games last year and that's hardly swimming against the stream. Explain the ps3 vs ps3 comparison where the 360 'won' or that editors comments.... its the little things 'I TELL YOU'

The biggest flop of 2009 yet. Can it beat lair in terms of review scores??? XD

Shadow Man3792d ago

was Software known for making great games?

AngryTypingGuy3791d ago

The difference is, this wasn't touted as being a big AAA title like Lair was. I played the demo for this months ago, and while I didn't think it was terrible, I knew it was mediocre at best. That said, this game has no business being compared to God of War. I don't even know why anyone did in the first place. I guess because it's a 360 exclusive. If it was a multiplatform game, it would never have been compared to GOW 3 and would just be another title that goes by the wayside.

TheColbertinator3792d ago

I hope Itagaki and Team Ninja smack From Software in the face for stealing all his concepts.

- Ghost of Sparta -3792d ago (Edited 3792d ago )

The dude reviewing this sounds so pissed.

ThanatosDMC3792d ago

Probably disappointed. The game promised a lot but failed to deliver like Hawx and Haze.

UltraNova3791d ago (Edited 3791d ago )

Not the guy who does the reviews if you've been watching invisible walls you would know that..

I did not expect this game to fail so badly in the face of the media... Yes it " borrows " "some" stuff...ok who I'm I kidding here it rips off all gameplay elements from NG, DMC and God of war but that doesnt mean its that bad! With this kind of logic no FPS should ever score above a 7/10 purely because every single one is doing the same thing over and over again, including lame ass plots. (Bioshock is an exception.

Well a friend of mine is getting it soon I should have an updated opinion on this by next week, unless he see's these reviews..

jeseth3791d ago

A bunch of fanboy hype and in the end a game that just fails in the end. When you are taking deliberate elements from other games you should at least try and improve on what is already out there.

This game looks like Ninja Gaiden + Heavenly Sword + Devil May Cry and it apparently = "eh".

Oh well.
