I'll likely end up keeping this title. The game is pretty fun and offers players some improvements over the original NG3--see Wiki for a complete list of differences.
Gameplay is fast and furious and the difficulty is often unforgiving. It's a bit unfortunate that so many reviewers penalize this game because of its difficulty--the NG franchise has always been known for its tough titles, so why be surprised? Fortunately there are still a few durable gamers out there that are willing to play it all the way through.
In my opinion, this is the best Ninja Gaiden title since NG: Black for the original Xbox. I'll admit that it's not for everyone. But judging by the high saturation of easy action games and an ever-growing casual gaming community, that's not such a bad thing these days. Few people will be able to say they beat this game on normal--or harder--difficulty.
