The lights are on
First let me say i have beaten all Ninja Gaiden Sigma 1,2 and 3 on hard. I,am 33 years old and i,ve been a fan of Ninja Gaiden since Nintendo. The people who rated this game low is mad because they wanted the game to be what they wanted it be. It,s more of a personal rate than a honest rating for Ninja Gaiden 3.
If you know anything about Ninja Gaiden then you know the original Ninja Gaiden on the NES told a good story. Some people are saying that the story sucks and i,am telling you they are wrong. In fact the story is very connected to Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2. Most people don,t like how Ryu is showing emotion in this game but he is still human. The developers went back to it,s roots because Ryu always showed feelings and emotions on the first Ninja Gaiden games on NES.
The graphics is good not as great as Uncharted graphics but good. The only thing i have to say is you might want to turn the brightness up in the options first. I don,t know why but there,s a lot of dark areas in the game that alters the graphic. But after you turn the bright up you can really see the polish in the graphics.
Gameplay, Weapon level up and Difficulty
Now this is where the game is both Strong and Weak. First let me say the developers went back to it,s roots and it,s a good thing. Originally Ninja Gaiden on NES was never about back tracking, puzzles and using different weapons. If you were born back in the late 80s and played Ninja Gaiden back then. You would probably say the same thing when i played Ninja Gaiden Sigma on the PS3. This don,t feel like a Ninja Gaiden game.
Alot of people rated this game low because of the one weapon you use in the whole game. I was glad they took away the other weapons because i main the katana. As much as fans don,t want to admit, those other weapons are just throw ins. I always went back to using only the katana in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 1 and 2. You never see Ryu using other weapons in the cut scenes because he don,t really uses other weapons but the katana. In the original Ninja Gaiden on NES he always uses the katana.
Weapon level up
Yes you do level up your weapon but in a different way. You don,t get to buy level ups like in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 1 and 2. You have to make it to parts in the game where you are giving stronger katanas. First your weapon starts out weak but when you get your new katana you are able to chain longer combos. By the end of the game your weapon is at full level with even more chain combos.
Most reviewers rated Ninja Gaiden 3 low because it is easier. Now i have to be honest with you and say it is easy on normal mode. Warning if you are reading this review i strongly recommend you play on hard mode first. This mode is really hard and there are enemy,s that will annoy you.
Get this game!! If you are the one who need other weapons then you are lucky. The Claws are free dlc. You also have the Ninja trials and Multiplayer that is a lot of fun. This is a game that you can play over and over again because next the Eclispe Scythe will be out April 17th free dlc.
I agree with u 100% on ninja gaiden 3 because these noobs that are playing games from the year 2000 they have got no clue on anything. My opinion to hell with all that think that this game sucks.
I totally agree with this statement I think Ninja Gaiden 3 is the a great game
1. Grammar..please use it.
2.I don't ever really play Ninja Gaiden for the story so can't really comment on that.
3. The reason there are alot of dark areas is because that is how the game devs wanted it, hence why before you even start playing they have you adjust the brightness lvl so that you get those dark areas.
4. One of the first things you do is mention that other reviews are to personal thus don't give a honest review, but then later mention that you personally have no problems with only having weapon since its the one you favor as does everyone else,my personal favorite weapon is the Vigoorian Flails so in Gaiden 1 and 2 as soon as i got those it was good bye dragon sword so i would never say that the other weapons where just throw ins.
5. I wouldn't really say that you lvling up your weapon since no matter what as long as you play through the game it happens but hey you say tomato i say potato.
6. You commented about how this game took it self back to its roots, and while that can be fine in certain aspects it just feels like they took two steps back making combat a lot more basic by taking certain game mechanics the best example being the currency/weapon system.
