Umm, well that's absolutely crappy to hear. All the negatives that the reviewers talks about in this review are stuff that I absolutely can't stand in games: terrible story, boring repetition, terrible camera. I have this coming in from Gamefly and I was
hoping for a nice hack-n-slash rental. Looks like I will be returning this immediately I get it.
While IGN isn't the gold standard of reviews, they have rated the previous Ninja Gaiden games as being very good so I'll admit that I'm still a bit disheartened to hear that they've deemed Ninja Gaiden 3 as being a failure (I
am a fan, after all). That said, a couple of other publications have had positive reviews for Ninja Gaiden 3 so I'll remain on optimistic.
