Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Ninja Gaiden 3 had plenty of shortcomings when it came out for other consoles and developer Team Ninja takes several steps to correct those in this revised version of the game for the Wii U. But Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is still far from perfect. The fight sequences are full of glorious overkill, which should please fans of blood-soaked fighting games, but it's the reason to keep kids away. It's fast-paced and never lets you catch your breath. Boss battles, though, are still extremely difficult -- sometimes taking up to an hour to complete. And the other battles get a bit repetitive after a while, even as you gather more weapons in your arsenal.
