As someone who played Ninja Gaiden on the NES years ago, I cannot wait.

Yep Troy Baker, not quite Nolan North.

This looks like Ninja Gaiden Gaiden.

The slow-walk scene looks fucking stupid and forced.

Also, lots of QTE's and button mashing ... I'm bored.

Posted by metalsnakezero

Wait, that was Troy Baker? So Kanji is a ninja?

Posted by sixpin

Always liked the idea of Ninja Gaiden. Never enjoyed playing them.

@CptBedlam: I laugh at your complete ignorance of the depth of combat.

Posted by Splodge

Graphically, this is boring as hell.

GO NINJA GO NINJA GO

Button mashing, Quick Time Events, Earpiece conversations... Devil's Third it is then.

Posted by Itwastuesday

why aren't those guys trying to brutally murder the player?

Ninja Gaiden Push X Button

Posted by Splodge

Ugh... The camera... good gravy.

Posted by Sooty

Uhm what's up with the graphics? This looks like an original Xbox game almost...

Sigma and 2 looked far better.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Never cared for this series at all, where as Devil May Cry got it right with difficulty, pacing, balance, etc. This change up is nice.

It looks awful. I know its a Demo, but isn't this part of the finished game? Fugly stuff.

It is so weird to hear the voice of Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII as the narrator/woman in Ninja Gaiden.

Posted by Asky314159

Ugh. Why did they even bother to call this Ninja Gaiden?

Posted by ViciousReiven

What the hell did they do? Did they ever play or even SEE the first 2?

It looks like they really wanted to make a DMC style stylish action game but forgot the combo system.

You know, I always thought that Ninja Gaiden Black must have been good in spite of Oatmeal Cookie's influence, because I thought he was an idiot and a major cunt. But... I guess the game did need him? Did the rest of TEAM NINJA quit with him?

Posted by Brendan

Dude, did I just see a rocket take off a tiny piece of Ryu's health? This does not look like the Ninja Gaiden I want. I will wait for the final verdict, however.

Posted by DFSVegas

I have to say, the last thing I was expecting from this Quick Look was a Mystikal reference.

Posted by AxleBro

this doesn't look as good as it should.

Posted by SHHADOWW

I feel anything past Ninja Gaiden Black is crap I liked Ninja Gaiden 2 but it just does not have the same feel as NGB and this does not look good to me at all I hate QTE's and should never have been in this. Ninja Gaiden is about the action not stupid QTE's that's what Ninja Blade is for.

Posted by LordCmdrStryker

Back to the Rub'al Khali desert? They totally copied UC3.

This kind of looks like ass. It really makes me want to go back and play NGB.

Posted by Forkstik

Is it me or is the game really dark?

Posted by Alphazero

By the time you say, "Where are you ninja," it's already too late.

Posted by Koshka

Camera! Y U ALWAYZ ZOOM?

Edited by CptBedlam

Wtf? That desert level at the end looks even worse than the city. What happened to this game?

A bunch of major people from TN followed him if i remember correctly.

Posted by BLipp18

The Rub al Khali Desert? OMG, Ninja Gaiden is going to do a crossover with Uncharted! Ryu vs. Drake!

Posted by CaLe

This makes the new Devil May Cry look good.

Posted by Maitimo

I hope this isn't representative of the final product, or it's going to be an even grimmer year for action games.

Posted by Seeric

While I have never been much of a fan of the Ninja Gaiden games, they at least usually have a distinct feel. This just looks remarkably generic and reminds me more of that horrible Ninja Blade game than anything else.

I'm gonna say Objective Updated more often in my life

@CptBedlam: Man, this first boss with the face-mask and red coat, right? Block attacks. Hit him. Quick time sword lock.

Edited by CptBedlam

Man, Ryan is commenting on an awful lot of NG-related things that he obviously doesn't know much about.

Casual Gaiden 3

Posted by oddduck

Calling it "Ninja Gaiden: The Third" ended up being kinda prescient. If Team Ninja amped up the ridiculousness just a couple notches more, they might have something.

It's sad to see a great series like this fall by the wayside. The first in the series will never be matched.

Posted by oldjack327

This hurts. The design changes aside, it's a brown grey world populated by the same military guys in every other video game. Where are the purple demons with blue fire for heads? Where are the giant werewolves? And why did they add animations from Gears of War? I know it's just a demo, but it's not a good hook to make me want the game.
