I'm a huge Ninja Gaiden fan, but this one is a huge disappointment. The game is too easy, the story doesn't fully make sense, the multiplayer sucks and there's no replay value. Compared to Ninja Gaiden Sigma 1 and 2, this one is way out there. The only real thing this game has going for it is the action is pretty good, graphics are on point and the controls are similar to the previous titles. Other than that, no go. They should've kept this title like the sigma series instead of throwing all those new ideas out there at once. My suggestion, stick with Sigma 1 and 2. This title isn't really worth it unless you're a trophy hunter.
Trying to fix something that is not broken is always a bad idea. Being a NG fan that I am, I shed a tear for such a horrible game NG has become! ONLY 1 WEAPON AND ONLY 1 NINPO= #2 (get it?) Anyway, I didnt even do my research before buying this weak game, which is unlike me, but I went and got it on GP because of the Brand. Whoever created this game should perform sepuku. Failure for the Ninja is shameful and intolerable.
Sorry to all of you Ninja Gaiden fans out there but this one was lacking big time. I love the ninja gaiden soga, and I was super excited to get my hands on this game "AT FIRST!!!" Anyway, first the good. The few reasons that I didn't give this game a 1rating are this. I love the new darker look and all the bloody gory slicing. I like the fact that they had him take his mask off for the first time in the game. The story line was even pretty good..... but now the bad. I felt the game was way too short, I miss the different types of nimpo and weapons and the way you upgrade them. I like being able to buy health, magic and even playing as a different character for part of the game. It just didn't live up to my expectations and I'm a huge ninja gaiden fan. Thank God for gamefly. I would have been very upset if I would have spent $60.00 on this game so I give it a generous 5 out of 10.
