The game its self is good, but not that well known and very hard, people dont like hard games nowadays.

Heated.
you think its good?

i thought it was a shambles compared to the first 2 games, each to their own i suppose...
reviews said it was too easy. the first 2 are very well known

IGN (30/100): "Ninja Gaiden 3 is a gash on the face of the franchise and one of the worst games the action genre has yet suffered"

I have the game and its just awful. Jkd I really don't know what your on about... Fans didn't only like the fact the games were hard on top of that 3 is easy.

Hands down the worst addition to the Ninja Gaiden genre ever.
Supposed to be proper gashanelli innit? I liked the first one - a lot! Never did finish it though...will buy PS Vita version instead!
Good or bad, I don't care. What do Game offer as trade-in for this?
it's a bad game sadly. I'm a huge NG fan but they decided to

- have none stop annoying reminders to use a button to see where to go (it's already very linear so this was stupid)
- get rid of the timed fights / 60 enemy fights with rewards at the end
- get rid of all weapons but dragon sword (and falcon talons if you download it)
- get rid of weapon upgrading
- get rid of scarabs

The only added additions since the old games is the kunai climbing (which is actually irritating at points), the ninja sense (shows you where to go, very annoying due to it doing it every 2 seconds) and quick time events in cut scenes. The last is the only one that isn't totally annoying but even so isn't that great an addition.

The entire game is shoddy for failing to even keep a lot of the better features of it's older titles, it is shockingly linear (the others were too but they didn't feel so linear as you wasn't annoyed into moving ahead by constant reminders that the way to go is actually straight forward in a fricking corridor). It's sad as I love NG 1 and 2 but they really couldn't be bothered to make a title worthy of those two games.

Combat is similar to previous games with the exception there is only 1 ninpo (removed all the others), there is only 1 / 2 weapons (download the second) and the sword seems to have even less diversity than before despite the lack of including almost everything else the old games had. In other words it's still got one of the best combat systems around but sadly the enemies are lacklustre, they aren't half as good as NG1 where each enemy had to be approached in a different way etc. The bosses aren't as good as previous games and I finished it much sooner than expected too, possibly because I'm now pretty good at NG games but possibly because it's just shorter and easier than the others.

The first one was by far the best and the hardest i managed to complete the first after i smashed 3 pads in rages ninja style and that was on the first xbox! 2 was good but to easy this one is very poor compared to the other 2!!
People, do not buy it! It is gonna be for a tenner very soon :))))

I'm waiting for the £7.99 mark
Worst game in the franchise, sold my copy after pushing myself to complete it.

People can defend this game all they want but the fans have spoken, its trash and this price reflects that.
I loved the first two games but I've heard that this one is really bad, from both reliable sources and Zero Punctuation haha

There's regenerating health and you can only use a non-upgradable sword, so it's not really Ninja Gaiden any more.

For those reading this who have never played any. Buy Ninja Gaiden Sigma on the Ps3 or Ninja Gaiden Black on the Xbox for use on the 360 as soon as you can. They are both contenders for the greatest games ever made. Easily in the top 5 with Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty taking two other places.

I would also say Ninja Gaiden 1 is up there with Stuntman 1 on the PS2 as the joint hardest game ever made

I did not think much of NG2 I keep trying to get into it but its just not fun. And was hoping NG3 would be a return to form. Its annoying its has not been.

Apparently, Easymode games that you can literally complete using the light attack button and nothing else, near enough.

gta, saints row,uncharted stuff like that

Will still get this at some point, loved the previous gaiden games.

Is it really that easy?

I really liked NG2, but there's no denying it did get frustrating at times. I always thought it'd be nice to still have it's insane difficulty there, but maybe have some easier settings for when you just want to play it without too much effort. Is that what NG3 is, or is it easy even on the higher difficulties?

Didn't even know it was released...Shiny...
am a massive fan of the NG series, but this is supposedly pants. I don't just go off IGN's reviews but they did it give 3/10.

Same boat mate, don't do it, you WILL be disappointed.



Wept all the way through....Team Ninja have lost their way without itagaki....dreading the next dead or alive.....
....and just to add, have left this deal neutral from my perspective, excellent price however for an extremely new game, wish I had waited and paid this (or even just hired it now i come to think of it) .... my previous experience with the series clouded my judgement by presumption that the game would shine so diving in was a bad move.

Anarchy Reigns(soon)/Bayonetta/DMC for me.

Tread easy for you tread upon my dreams......
