Ninja Gaiden 3 (Xbox 360)

 

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...

Ryu Hyabusa used to be a nice guy. Maybe not a great conversationalist or a well-written character, but from his actions in the various Ninja Gaiden games, it was clear he was an honorable man that would defend the innocent and vanquish evil. However,...

Ninja Gaiden 3 tries to emulate God of War and creates an unsatisfying action title guaranteed to put off fans of both franchises. It lacks the scale and variety of God of War and forgoes its roots as a hardcore action title centered around a lengthy...

One might expect with a ninja as the titular character, one might have the expectation Ninja Gaiden III would have stealth-fighting gameplay like Tenchu or Hitman, where violence is an option but not the preferred approach and likely to kill you. I...

Solid visuals ; Viscerally engaging blood-spilling violence

One-trick pony and the trick gets old ; No exploration or thought required

There are better places to spend your money than this game – it is clear that some good design work went in, but the uninteresting gameplay ruins the whole affair.

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

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...

When Tomonobu Itagaki and several key members departed Team Ninja a while back, it left a serious quandary on what would happen next with Tecmo Koei and its Ninja Gaiden franchise, especially since Itagaki-san and company had perfected the art of the...

Presentation-wise, Ninja Gaiden 3 does pack a punch. While part two had more polish in certain areas, 3 makes up for it with variety, including outstanding landscapes like a Saudi Arabia facility or a deep underground headquarters where data transfers...

Fans have been waiting four years for a true Ninja Gaiden game, but the lack of former Director Itagaki has some people worried. Team Ninja has been going in a significantly easier and less bloody direction ever since Itagaki left, but those issues...
