Review: Ninja Gaiden 3 0

(Note: This review can also be found at Front Towards Gamer)Since its 2004 revitalization, Ninja Gaiden has become synonymous with one thing: fast, brutal combat which, when mastered, is immensely satisfying. It’s become something of a rarity in a console generation defined by terms like “accessibility.” Now spoiled by yearly franchises that pander to publishers’ bottom lines, games like Ninja Gaiden have become almost as much relics of the past as the series’ original NES platformers. With Ninj...

Was it THAT Bad? 0

Now, when shaking hands, Ryu must only use his left hand for the occasion.*Hello. RayCarter here. This is the final piece of my arranged "Ninja Month", where I look at four games revolving around famous video game practitioners of ninjutsu. I reviewed two Tenchu games and most recently gave an opinion/piece on Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword for the NDS. Now, with an exhaustive review, I will give my two cents on Team Ninja's latest, and probably most maligned, product, Ninja Gaiden 3. Was it as tras...

A Passable Letdown... 0

Front (JP)Ninja Gaiden 3 is a game that was on the list of must play games for 2012, that is, until it was actually released. I followed the release and pre-ordered the Collector's Edition of the game for PS3 and was excited to get my hands on it. Ninja Gaiden 2 and Ninja Gaiden Black were both games I played over and over and rank high on my all time favorites list. This third installment, however, is not a top notch entry in gaming and may go down as the title with the biggest disappointment t...

Team Ninja's intentions were all over the place. 0

Originally written 5-10-12The Dragon Ninja, Ryu Hayabusa is approached by two agents working for an organization by the name of JSDF (Japan's Self-Defense Force). Ryu believes they are there for his help, yet it turns out they're there to help him. An unknown organization displays footage of Ryu battling the Black Spider Clan, and they demand he shows his presence at a hostage situation in London. Who are these people and why are they after Ryu? -summaryIt's pretty much universal that Ninja Gaid...

Is This What Ninja Gaiden Has Become?! 0

NINJA GAIDEN 3 - XBOX 360/PS3Ninja Gaiden..a household name for all original Xbox owners, Ninja Gaiden 2..a solid follow up title for all Xbox 360 owners..Ninja Gaiden 3..seems to slot somewhere inbetween the two, covered in a crimson mass, cowering behind the cushions.I didn't allow myself to become excited about 'Ninja Gaiden' 3 and i'm extremely happy that i didn't because i feel if i had, i would have been a little more than disappointed, however due to avoiding all previews and interviews p...
