While previous Ninja Gaiden games gave you all the tools you need to be a ninja, Ninja Gaiden 3 gives it a little twist.
On medium difficulty, all you do is hammer on a few buttons and occasionally block or dodge and every last kill is a cinematic event. You play still as Ryu Hayabusa but with only a single weapon and a single ninpo. .
There are some new abilities you’ve come to pick up.. Ryu can now scale ropes, for example, and you can fling shuriken at any enemy. You even go through a series of wall-climbing, which requires pressing each trigger in turn, and maybe hitting a button to throw a shuriken.
There are also a few boss fights which are quite fun, but a little tame. All in all the game’s fun and worth the time.
