Destructoid - Ninja Gaiden 3 Review

Jim Sterling writes: Ninja Gaiden 3 isn't wholly terrible, but it is a significant step down from previous titles, removing many elements that made the series stand out from the crowd and adding features we've seen in dozens of previous action titles. Ironically, Team Ninja's attempts to revamp the series and do new things have only led to it feeling more stale and mundane than ever before. Sporadically entertaining, yes, and seasoned with shallow-yet-satisfying moments of carnage, but ultimately nonessential and forgettable.

Its his opinion, don't understand why people can't accept this.

So more bad reviews are finally trickling in... The truth is out and the earlier positive 8s are a sham!

Ninja Gaiden and Dynasty Warrior should never be mentioned in one sentence and sadly, Hayashi has done the impossible. Made an inferior Dynasty Warrior!

I'm so sad and angry! :(

This game shouldn't get slammed this bad. The least it should get is a 7.5-8.

Journalism at its finest..../s

Mashing disagrees doesn't change the fact that I've played the game and i know it's not that bad.

YOU may know that, but others may disagree with you...I disagree with you, for one. If you asked me, I'd probably come up with the same complaints he came up with. Definitely not a fan of this entry in the series.

Thank you for sharing your OPINION undisputed. I'll surely play the game and form MY OWN.

N4G has really reached a new low.

I never implied the game was perfect to begin with. It has it's flaws but the game should at least be a 7-8. It is true that they changed things and it seems like its not NG anymore but 5 is too low of a score.

And this is coming from someone who has played the NG series.

and has landed in the proverbial Call of Duty-casual grade gaming pool.

Oh well. Heres hoping this will never happen to God of War.

The game isn't bad it's just not ninja gaiden good. It's a great action game but unfortunately it's not ninja gaiden. Playin it right now on chapter 3. It's fun. But again it's not ninja gaiden...

Impressive how much this is happen this gen!

It's a good action game, just not a good Resident Evil.

But it is a good jrpg, just not a good Final Fantasy.

It is a good online shooter, but not a good socom.

Time for developers focus on new IP's, if only to preserve the good old ones...
