Ninja Gaiden 3 on PS3

Ninja Gaiden 3 Screen Shots

Ninja Gaiden 3 is a Fighting game available on the PS3. It can be played in Singleplayer Competitive modes.

Ninja Gaiden 3 is a Fighting game. Fighting games revolve around the interaction of two or more characters in some form of physical combat. Players learn to control characters through either memorisation of button combinations to access more advance moves, or by their reactions and accurate timing.

Ninja Gaiden 3 can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Ninja Gaiden 3 can be played in a Competitive mode. Competitive Multiplayer games provide experiences where players compete against each other and the computer. Obviously lending itself to sports and team games, these competitive engagements have also dominated the shooting and fighting genres because of the direct combat and expertise involved in each. Although these games were originally played in a split screen style, more recently they are played online via services such as PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and the Nintendo Wireless Connection.


Ninja Gaiden 3

Ninja Gaiden 3 will continue the story of Ryu Hayabusa with the same fast paced, challenging game play of the previous titles. However, a new director at the helm and a plan to widen its appeal raises question as to whether it will be what fans want.

Ninja Gaiden is probably one of the most difficult franchises on the market, shunning accessibility for challenge. Ninja Gaiden 3 will undoubtedly keep the series' responsive and fluid game play, but fans are wondering if new director Yosuke Hayashi will maintain predecessor Tomonobu Itagakiís vision as he and Team Ninja attempt to improve on the formula.
