Ninja Gaiden 3 is fun. There are quite a bit of powers in this game that keeps this game from not being played.
Gameplay - I will admit; this game is button mashing system. Even though they took the high road with button mashing they still balanced the gameplay out with how much blood and gore you witness. There's so much blood!
Presentation - The story is about the past enemies that Ryu Hayabusa coming back to haunt him. The story is plain, but there are a lot of quick time events that keep it entertaining. You fight off enemy after enemy, jump and climb up walls, and even fight off fighter planes shooting rockets and bullets at you.
The Verdict - It has good graphics, an ok story, and awesome quick time events, but this game isn't as bad as IGN or anyone else is saying. It deserves 6/10 just because it's fun and anyone who likes slasher games and tons of gore will definitely love this game.

I noticed a lot of people hacking on this game with negative criticism with a one-track minded perspective. So I decided to look at this game myself. Now, I have played Ninja Gaiden before. And I like this game. It's great. The story is deep, the gameplay is new somewhat, and to top it off the ultimate technique is even better. Now I've rented NG Sigma 2, so I can see why people say that the third game stinks- the gameplay is faster, and there is just a bunch of stuff the third game doesn't have. But don't hack on the game just because it's different. It's the same thing you do in the first game, hack-and-slash-hack-and-slash-hack-and-slash, wall run, shoot some arrows do some cool finishes, etc. And when you tie everything together, the whole game seems to reflect that.
In short, Ninja Gaiden 3 is an awesome game. IT's just a little more.......straightforward, so to speak.
