Ninja Gaiden 3 (PlayStation 3)

 

Previous Ninja Gaiden games assumed you were a master swordsman. They gave you the tools to succeed and expected you to use them, having you bounding from walls before plunging a sharp blade into your enemies' bowels in a series of dizzying attacks....

Ninja Gaiden was always a series forgamers. The series sported one of the most complex yet satisfying combat engines of all time, in addition to its punishingly brutal level of difficulty. Completing Ninja Gaiden Black on the original Xbox, even on the...

Ninja Gaiden 3 is also the first title in the series with significant multiplayer. When you read the word significant in the last sentence, realize that it actually means "pointless, shallow and an utter waste of time." You can take on other players...

There’s little way to skirt the issue, Ninja Gaiden 3 is a disappointing, misguided step backwards for the vaunted action series. Once synonymous with the term hardcore, Ryu’s third modern adventure has gone soft in a myriad of ways, leaving little...

Regarded on its own merits, Ninja Gaiden 3 might be a perfectly fine third-person action game. However, by carrying the Ninja Gaiden moniker, the game has exposed itself to all sorts of expectations it never attempts to address. The franchise to this...

A once-imaginative series succumbs to fatigue.

Other woes include the overly dramatic camera, which swoops about like an overcaffeinated vulture; the myriad quick-time events which are forever reducing gameplay to a button-press or two; and the game’s half-cooked online mode, which includes dull...

All flash and no substance: Ninja Gaiden 3 is a shallow action game with little of the series' challenge and depth.

Flashy, brutal swordplay is always a pleasure to watch ; Online play instills a sense of progression ; A few memorable encounters

Shallow action lacks the depth and challenge of previous Ninja Gaiden games ; Intrusive story elements bog down the pace ; Recycled boss fights require too little skill ; Terrible PlayStation Move support

I'm not really sure what to do here. By the time I sit down to write a review, I'm confident in the score I plan to give. But no matter how much thought I put into it, no matter how often I go back to play Ninja Gaiden 3, I can't seem to decide upon an...

The Ugly: “…can’t really see what’s happening, but I know I don’t care much anymore.”

Murderer or Hero?

Quick-paced fighting; Snappy presentation; Occasionally interesting set pieces

Ham-fisted story doesn't even accomplish much, if anything; Hack, slash, and repeat QTE's. For hours.; No reward to be gained from combat; Multiplayer feels very sparse and purposeless

For all Ninja Gaiden 3 tries to pull sympathy from its players onto its protagonist, it seems to have lost its way. It's an example of a game that is less than the sum of its parts—each on their own are fine, perhaps even good—because the entire thing...

Ninja Gaiden has always been about brutal difficulty, skillful combat, a ton of limbs flying in all directions, and a variety of increasingly ridiculous monsters to battle. With Team Ninja under new leadership, its flagship series has undergone a...

Players desperate for traditional action gaming may glean some passing repletion from what is ultimately an inoffensive waste of time. However, the monotonous action long outstays its welcome and a series of this pedigree should be bringing so much...

After the first two, we had high hopes for part three. But can a Ninja Gaiden game work without Itagaki at..

As with the previous titles, Ninja Gaiden 3's battles are fast-paced and boss fights are as epic as ever. Streamlining the gameplay, however, removed a lot of the depth that came with collecting dozens of melee and ranged weapons, and upgrading them at...
