This guy/girl gave a game I never even played a score I don't think it deserves. Guess what, its their opinion after they've played the game. If you've played the game and think the score is off, good for you, but when you say it doesn't deserve x score when you haven't even played it or read the review, then I feel sorry for you...



    I agree with you here. From what I read, the game is very repetitive and the difficulty is severely lacking compared to NGS2.
    I read the review, and I don't disagree/agree with the score at all (as you said, I have not played the game at all). I have no say. I was just stating that IGN shouldn't be trusted when it comes to reviews.

    The reviewer makes valid points, it's a step down from its predecessor, plain and simple.

    Stop being so quick to judge and immediately take to the "DONT TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY, ITS IGNORANT!" path.

    Besides, even if the game did get a low score, why let that affect your final decision? The new Silent Hill got a pretty bad score from IGN too, but after watching multiple videos, I think its definitely worth my time and money after all.

    Remember people, reviews are opinions.

    As most of you have said, can't judge until it's been played. But I'm hoping it's not that bad, 'cause I have sigma and sigma 2, loved them both. But at the same time, I rarely buy games brand new anyway so what do I care, as long as the trophies are attainable for the online ones when I finally do get it

    - also, I agree that they have dumbed down the difficulty, NGS was sooo much harder than NGS2 to complete [ not plat, I'm not there yet...]

    Wow. If he's right, it's almost as bad as Naughty Bear. And Naughty Bear was TERRIBLE.

    I try to not base opinions like reviews on what I want. If it looks fun, why listen to some idiot wail about it with a review when I can give it my own opinion? They gave Uncharted 3 a 10, when at most it should've gotten a 9.

I have yet to see anybody provide any evidence to support this claim other than the Kane and Lynch (spelling?) fiasco years ago. Like Gauss points out whenever discussing the issue. If everyone is getting paid for their reviews, then why is there so much of a difference in the scores across the board for the same game on various review sites?
    But it is a possibility (and a big one at that), and I for one does not want to take that risk. For example (I know this is a minor thing, but) look at the Child of Eden review of both the Xbox 360 version and the PS3 version (here). It does not necessarily show any of the things I said, but it does show uneven between two parts (And they are both the same identically game). I'm not saying IGN is bad, but all the reputation about the things I said leads you to wonder, and therefore I do not find IGN to be trusted alone (until it's either proved good or bad), but I do agree, that what I said was uncalled for. I was just referring to the fact, that extreme biasism or filled checkbooks, may have been involved.

    already heard alot of people saying it's shit (only one weapon for example), this helps my argument.

    The same company that gave CoD: MW3 a 9/10?

    Meh, I don't read their reviews anymore, so whatever score they give I think otherwise.

    If you don't like NG3, just wait for the Sigma version. It'll have more... stuff. I guess...
    Yeah, that's the ticket.

    Out of 7 reviews so far the current Metascore is 60.
    Ninja Gaiden 3 Critic Reviews for PlayStation 3 at Metacritic.com



    Also I don't know who does IGN's math but (5.0 + 4.0+ 5.5 + 2.5 + 2.0) does not equal 3.0 it equals 3.8

    I don't think IGN uses their 'Overall' score as an average of the individual category scores.

    It's meant as a separate score altogether (which is retarded, if you ask me).

    I once saw an IGN game review that had 7's & 8's on the individual category scores, but somehow managed to get a 6.0 on the overall.

    Reading the IGN review, it does seem that the reviewer has made a subjective review, comparing the Ninja Gaiden 3 to other games in the franchise rather than an objective review, reviewing Ninja Gaiden 3 as a game in it's own right. With that said, the PS3 version (not enough reviews for the 360 version yet) currently has a metacritic score of 60 based on 7 reviews. Taking out the IGN review would make it 68.

    The thing about Child of Eden is that it is the exact same game but played with 2 very different control schemes, Kinect vs Move with the option of playing with a standard controller on both platforms (which is not recomended). If you look, you'll find that the higher Xbox 360 review is pretty consistant accross the board because this game is more suited to Kinect than it is to Move. I know from experience that playing Child of Eden with Move instead of a standard controller makes a significant difference, but find myself wishing I had Kinect and the 360 version.

    I will give most games a chance and purchase it, if it looks intresting. The difference is when and how much i will pay for a game based on how much i want to play it.

    I'm skipping this one for now but thats because i have so many games to play as it is and with average scores all around not in cluding ign;s lame score it's not a must have game for me...maybe it is for others and thats there decision like i always say play the game yourself and decide for yourself if you like it hell i love dynasty/samurai warriors games and am stoked for orochi warriors 3...and those games never score great but hell i have fun no matter wahter and so i suggest those who want the game to do the same and just decide for yourself.

    I agree with most here. Although IGN and I have never agreed on a game, that doesn't mean that they can't be right for once. I'm sure it snows in hell every 1,000 years or so.
    That being said, I don't usually purchase a game based any single reviewer's opinion. However, there is one. I love the reviews that Mark from CGR gives. He usually gives such an in depth review with a ton of game footage on each game he reviews. I don't think there has been a single game that he has reviewed that I disagreed with.
    Now, I'm not trying to wax the guy's pole or anything, I'm just saying that I think my taste in games happen to be similar.

    Brace yourself all, one weapon with two new to come as DLC

    Donīt buy it.
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    I agree with you here. From what I read, the game is very repetitive and the difficulty is severely lacking compared to NGS2.
    Well, it looks like I'm eating crow tonight. Just canceled my order of NG3. I was at my local gamestop (which btw, I'm kool with everyone who works there) and they told me straight up "Don't play this. It's flat out shit." Shocked as I was, I wanted to try it out, luckily, they had the game in their PS3 display, and I tried it out for like 3 missions, no, No, NO!!!! They destroyed that game. NGS2 is way better than NG3. So upset that they turned it into a pile of crap.
