What a joke of a game. Biggest disappointment of 2012. Only reason why I tolerated it because I am a fan of the series. I had high hopes for this game and team ninja crushed it for me

After NG 1 and 2 i kinda had high hopes for 3.....call me VERY disapointed. The game feels more like God of War now but in a bad camera,bad graphics and iffy control way. Save yourself the trouble and dont bother with this game.

Unless you like to play bad games and just experience to say "yeah, it is terrible"

Team Ninja brings us the 3rd Installment to the Ninja Gaiden Series. The Series that started on the NES has brought many of us Ninja Fans come together. Team Ninjas high-energy action games have never been in particularly heavy on Story but rather have been focused on smoothly controlling, brutal action. However, they have never been about contextual quick-time events & stealth but Ninja Gaiden 3 is bringing both of those mechanics to the series. As an added feature, Team Ninja has also added Multiplayer to the game. Gameplay is fast-paced but also a little farfetched. Camera Control has improved since Ninja Gaiden 2. Art Design is a little blurry at times with the blood & gore on but its still pretty good. Controls can be difficult at times but will leave you button-mashing through the QTE's. Multiplayer is fun but can get a little boring at times it also requires an Online Pass for those that dont know or who dont like Online passes. This game feels more like a rent but if your a fan of the series then this is a buy or a borrow. Ninja Gaiden has come along way since its NES Debut but all in all this Sequel is a mediocre/fair game. Ninja Gaiden 3 gets a 7 out of 10.
