    IGN's Ninja Gaiden 3 Review - What A Bloody Disaster

    Final score: 3/10


    Presentation: 5.0
    The camera hurts the stylish and over-the-top action.

    Graphics: 4.0
    Ryu looks fine, the women look like RealDolls, and everything else looks like low-res sewage.

    Sound: 5.5
    The voice acting is rough, but the ridiculous metal tunes are super fun to fight to.

    Gameplay: 2.5
    When you can tell what’s happening, fighting is easy, repetitive, and dull.

    Lasting Appeal: 2.0
    One weapon, no character progression, and pointless multiplayer leave little reason to return.

    Ninja Gaiden 3 is a gash on the face of the franchise and one of the worst games the action genre has yet suffered. It has no consideration for its fans’ wants or what a new audience may have enjoyed. It’s a nightmare that’s as easy as it is uninteresting, and it abandons what used to work for awful new ideas that don’t work together. Under no cir***stance should you ever waste your time on this self-indulgent and abysmal wreck.
    IGN have been very harsh lately with their reviews, i will be waiting for the gametrailers review to come out.

    Brutal review. Never liked IGN and I'm sure other reviews won't be so negative.

    I've always seen Ninja Gaiden as a marmite game, you either love it or hate it.

    IGN has become a joke. They do reviews like this to try to "toll" people to get more hits to their sites. Even bad hits mean more money from sponsors because they look at traffic.

    How is it a harsh review?

    Because it's a series we're familiar with, it deserves a high score?
    If it was a no-name game, nobody would care if it got a 3.
    But because it's Ninja Gaiden (or say Silent Hill), it has some soft of "entitlement"
    to receive a good score, despite if it's a bad game?

    We need more reviewers like IGN, mature enough to give an honest, unbiased review of a game.


    This wasn't a personal attack against you Nuvian.
    Had to get this off my chest.

    The reviewer CLEARY needs to get laid. I think he was a bit harsh from what I've seen. This would have been day 1 had it had dismemberment.

    tbh, from EVERYTHING i been hearing, this game is as per the review.

    they made it easier, took away gore, itachi didnt work on it, left us with ONE weapon, health regens, no limb dismemberment, i could go on

    Loads of NG fans, (yes i am one) have been slating it.

    Thanks to Final for the sick sig!

    I love how people aways question a review site's credability whenever they don't like a game they do.

    IGN is and will probably remain one of my favorite sites for reviews.
    Trophy-licious!

    I never bothered with IGN's reviews. But anyway, it's not possible that the game is SO bad.
    You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push!

    Regardless of who is reviewing a 3 is just shocking for this game. I honestly wouldn't even expect this review from Edge. I'm curious to see the other reviews coming in. I don't care who is reviewing the game if it gets a "3 out of 10" it makes me raise my eyebrow.

    it really sounds like the reviewer sucked at the game, so he tore it apart lol. Ninja Gaiden was never really a stellar series but OUCH


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    There is a good chance nowadays that this is the case. Woudn't be the first time recently that a reviewer gave a game a bad score for not being the game they wanted it to be.

    Here's the problem. It looks like the reviewer took the previous games into consideration when reviewing THIS game. It's a poor way to review a game; basing it on past experiences.

    I think the game is brilliantly fun. It's challenging. If you want all those things in the game from the previous games, THEN PLAY THE OTHER GAMES! (not directed at YOU)

    Yeah, if you're hung up on that, instead of good game play, you'll wanna pass on this one.

    Actually this review is fine. It doesn't really gets into the details of exactly how do the mechanics work together or how they fail to work together in the face of the challenges, but it's a pretty decent review.

    Is it a low score? yes, but so what? We always complain about how games are basically on a 7 to 10 scale, but that's because we dismiss everything under that. Reviews with under 7 score can be equally if not more powerful than any other places on the scale. The analysis is fine and the review is well saturated with opinions. It's a pretty decent review.
