So this one was as ok as the second one, which was way worse than the first one. I finished this one but could not really get into it. Worth renting if you're needing to fill up your queue.
--You get a team up level in a God of War 3 Gaia type boss level that's fun
--the healing power (I recommend getting fast)
--the health bonuses (also recommend getting fast)
--new upgrade system
--new save system
--Feels repetitive (go into room, spawn way overpowered baddies, rinse repeat for the whole game)
--While I don't have a prob with Troy Baker, they could have made Ryu sound remotely Asian
--Voice acting as a whole not that great
--boss battles boring and kinda pointless
--I used sword and fireball ki whole time, didn't see any point what so ever in using or leveling up any other weapons
--female animation...little boob happy. I mean they will just be standing there not moving at all and their boobs go beserk like some invisible dude smacked em up
--game as a whole. just wasn't there for me
Couple of pointers:
==Get healing, health boost, and counterstrike upgrades asap
==for the love of god utilize block, never ever ignore it

It would seem this iteration of Ninja Gaiden was deemed a bit weak by it's creators. So much so that they added in MANY long and mostly pointless cut scenes to bore us between somewhat repetitive battles.
Overall it's still a somewhat decent game, but quite short and lacking the variation of it's predecessors.
