One of the most well-known ninja, Ryu Hayabusa's name conjures feelings in people the world over. And yet, there is so much that we don't know about the man behind the mask.

Ninja Gaiden 3 aims to take players on a journey with their hero Hayabusa once more, but this time they'll see more from their protagonist than they ever imagined. For the first time, we'll get a look at the world through Hayabusa's eyes, and find out what drives him to fight, and kill.

At the center of the conflict this time around is a masked man whose motivations and goals are unclear. Through mysterious powers, he changes Hayabusa - and the lines between hero and villain, good and evil, are blurred forever.

Featuring a new story, new gameplay and new modes, Ninja Gaiden 3 marks a new direction in this fan-favorite franchise. Team NINJA will change the way fans think about ninja and Hayabusa in this game, and promise that they'll know what it feels like to "cut someone down" through their experiences in the game.

The game will also feature online multiplayer, both co-op and competitive, that will add a completely new experience to Ninja Gaiden. The shadowy world of ninja has never been presented this way, and Ninja Gaiden will never be the same!

Pick up the Dragon Sword once more, sharpen its blade and hone your skills. An adventure unlike any other awaits you.

  • A hero unmasked: With a new story and new characters, players will learn more about Hayabusa's past and present life than ever before. Once seen only as a mindless killing machine, players will unravel layers of their hero as they see his motivations and learn about the man behind the mask
  • High-octane ninja action: Built upon the same intense action that the series is renowned for, Ninja Gaiden 3 will challenge players while still remaining accessible for players new to the franchise
  • Online action: A rich and challenging set of online modes are being implemented, giving players the option to play cooperatively or competitively. New challenges, characters and missions await those who choose to join the Shadows of the World online!

 Disappointing to say the least

| | See all Straughan88's reviews (54)

Let me begin by saying that I am a huge fan of the Ninja Gaiden franchise, so much so that I consider the series one of my favorites. So understandably I was quite excited when Ninja Gaiden 3 was announced. And now that's it's here I have to unfortunately say, it was not worth the wait. From start to finish everything about the game feels wrong, and the aesthetics (or feel if you wish) that the first two games had just isn't there any more. This may be due to the fact that practically every single thing that made the previous two games great has been taken out, and in replace is some truly god awful voice acting, gameplay that gets repetitive very quick and a story that's weak at best. Allow me to just list the negatives since there's so many of them. First of all, the only weapons you get are a sword and a bow, and that's it throughout the entire game! Two weapons! One of the best things I enjoyed about the first two was the variety of weapons, but that's no longer the case in this one. Speaking of weapons, you can no longer upgrade them either, and you don't get any yellow, blue or red essence from killing enemies any more. This is because there's no need for essence because you can no longer buy anything, for all the Murumasa shops have gone, along with all health items, ninpo items and rebirth talismans. There is also no chests of any kind throughout the game and no collectibles (no golden scarabs or crystal skulls) You get the point. Anyway, the next bad thing. Ninpo has been altered for the worst, because you are now required to kill enemies to build up a bar, and only when the bar is full can you use it. (and dare I also mention that there's only one kind of ninpo) Anyway, moving onto the gameplay. While the fighting is good and fun at first, it does get repetitive very quickly. Previous games have always given you the option to retreat if need be, but not any more. All of the fighting in NG3 always locks you in an area which becomes flooded with enemies, and you can't continue until all enemies are dead. And that's pretty much it, get locked into an area - kill all enemies - get locked in a different area - kill all enemies etc. Having said all of this, I did still enjoy the game, but I've tried really hard to like it more and I just can't. In summery, is it a bad game, no. Is it one of the most disappointing games of 2012? Unfortunately yes. 6.5 out of 10.

 very good fun...

| | See all xbox360dude's reviews (9)

Like I said, its very fun...but it lacks the feel of the previous NG games.

it is challenging, im finding it quite difficult on the hard setting despite everyone saying its too easy. iv completed NG1 and 2 MNM so I know a challenge when I get one.

only problem I got with this game is the "feel", by that I mean the controls don't feel as responsive as the others did.

If you're a vet in this game and is very keen of "shuriken cancel" then you may be disappointed, because its feels...off

who know's, it might be patched one of these days, it should be since it counts as one of its biggest flaws.

responsive/precise timing controls is very crucial for this game.

4/5 because its still a good and fun game none the less.

 Ninja Gaiden meets Prince of Persia.....Disappointing.....

A massive fan of NG1, the series has never come close since. This 3rd instalement builds on nothing from the first 2 and instead removes anything recognisable in the series. Great action, but ultimately boring. The is Ninja Gaiden meets Prince of Persia.

 This year's worst game

If someone gives you this game as a present then do not open it. Just take it back to the shop and trade it with anything else you can find on any shelves. Trust me. This game really sucks.
