Ninja Gaiden 3 Review - GameZone

Not everyone is going to be accepting of the fact that Ninja Gaiden 3 exists without the assistance of former Team Ninja leader Tomonobu Itagaki. For the longest time, this producer defined what the hardcore ninja experience is supposed to be, and since his hasty departure from Tecmo Koei’s camp, many were wondering how the legendary Ryu Hayabusa would fare without him. Well, now that the game’s here, we can honestly say that, yes, it is a different venture for him, but that doesn’t mean it sucks. In fact, this ninja is still as sharp as ever, mind a slight misstep or two.

I've only played Ninja Gaiden on the NES. Kind of want to play this one, but I should probably play the last game first.

I'm not sure if all the differences will work for me. I love NG1 and 2.

i have no trouble accepting Itagaki gone ... i'll however wont agree with NG3 following the mainstream mold without getting ANYTHING in return .

I emphase on anything and nothing , because that's kinda it . Did we get some cool and slick storyline in exchange ? Nope , same old garbage with more cutscenes .

IS the game astonishing looking ? It's still good looking , but hardly something memorable by today's higher standards . So nope .

So we have a new story emphase that bring no actual story , samish old aesthetic wise , with less weapon , the addition of QTE and less challenge by default .

Hard to see a win , if you're used to the franchise . Not a turd by hardly a winner

What most reviews are saying is its a great action game but not great by ng standards.
