I will admit I was shaky bout gettin this game cause I didn't know what to expect. I have it now though and just completed it on normal now on hard mode I skipped over easy mode. Now I have played ninja gaiden since ninja gaiden black on the original xbox. and I have played the ninja gaiden 2 on 360 and both sigma versions. Ninja gaiden 3 is not a bad horrible or broken game as some say its just taken in a different direction.

Let me put it this way strip ninja gaiden 1 and 2 of all the maps and extra weapons and ninpos only get your dragon sword or katana or a sword of some kind and one ninpo add in some quick time events and ninja gaiden 1 and 2 would be no different than 3.

Yes NG3 is not as involved gameplay wise its straightforward and while the story is generic it make since if you just follow it heck all 3 stories make sense. NG3 is a straightforward action game with some amazing action and as for the story I read one review that talks bout how the story contradicts itself but in my opinion it doesnt yes ryu kills a lot and while i can understand killing the beggin people and all the point is not bout ryu's killing making him a murderer what the story is trying to say is if ryu does what he does for the right reasons.

Anyway thats just my opinion but the bottom line is if you liked the other 2 games at least try this one while it is easier than the other 2 (at least on normal and part of hard mode) it still is not the button masher everyone thinks play it that way and you will die a lot Ive tried thanks for reading

hope my review helps

i started on the first ninja gaiden on xbox, fell in love with the series. the reasons i fell in love with this game series didnt show in the newest installment which was very disappointing. they took away the adventure aspect and made it a pure hack and slash. the main focus of this game was the story but it doesnt do a very good job of keeping you drawn in. what i missed from the previous 2 games was the ability to upgrade your weapons and purchase items and new nimpo abilitys. none the less it was a solid action game that had its moments but in the end it definitly is a rental. hopefully team ninja doesnt disappoint with the next one
