Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Review

 

Ninja Gaiden 3 crosses over to the Wii U with a truckload of changes. Is Razor's Edge finally the hardcore action game Nintendo fans have been clamoring for?

Ninja Gaiden 3 Review: American Ninja, the Video Game

 

Team Ninja's attempt to force Ninja Gaiden into the Western style falls flat.

Ninjas are cool, right? Take a look back at the great ninja craze of the 1980s and you'll find the black-clad assassins in almost everything from cheesy flicks like American Ninja to the totally tubular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. While I generally...

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge review – fine line

 

Team Ninja's controversial sequel gets a revamp on the Wii U, with tougher combat and more gore – but are the changes for the best?

One of the most substantial revamps of an existing game ever seen, with definite improvements in terms of the variety of weapons and enemies. Anya’s chapters are good fun too

Certain enemies feel frustratingly unfair to fight and the controls aren’t always reliable. Laughably bad storytelling and uneven difficulty

Team Ninja has done everything to please fans short of making a brand new game, but despite its successes this too often feels like an awkward compromise.

Ninja Gaiden 3 review: Less brutal, less sadistic - and better for it

 

Finishing a Ninja Gaiden game was a sadistic test of prowess. Notoriously unforgiving and unwelcoming, previous iterations were happy to kick you to the floor right at the start and continue pounding away until you gave up crying like a baby, or, after...

Rejoice: insane, sadistic difficulty given the boot ; New lease of life for the combat - feels more attacking and aggressive ; Stupid, tittersome (in an ironic sense) story

Commiserate: insane, sadistic difficulty given the boot ; Multiplayer modes feel clunky ; Moronic, unfunny (even in an ironic sense) story

It's less hardcore than previous games, making solo play enjoyable, but the online mode is a misstep. Still, while it's not as accomplished as Bayonetta, it's the best Gaiden yet.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Review

 

In a console market that's about to be assaulted by Dante, Raiden and even Kratos, Razor's Edge is seriously lacking in precision and balance.

Better than Ninja Gaiden 3 ; Sometimes satisfying combat

Lacking in balance ; Too much going on on-screen

Game supplied by Nintendo and played for approximately eight hours.
