    Ninja Gaiden III is a fun game, but I hesitate to call it great. Has lost much of the old Ninja Gaiden feel.

    Test-of-time gameplay saves this one from a choppy storyline, but its also one of the most disappointing games, ever.

    To be honest, my first experience with a ninja gaiden was this game. It became kinda fuzzy to start the story (which I regret) in the end of the nes serie. Ninja gaiden shows a kickas ninja who tri...

    The five-continue limit makes this otherwise decent game straight up ridiculous.

    Rated on February 23, 2008 by carolynmichelle

    Released in 1991, Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom was very nearly a perfectly adequate, if unspectacular, conclusion to the trilogy of Ryu Hayabusa's NES adventures. Unfortunately, one trem...

    Boasting improved production values and gameplay, Ninja Gaiden III is even more challenging than its predecessors.

    Rated on July 03, 2009 by Asagea_888

    Ninja Gaiden III wraps up an engaging trilogy involving a ninja, a CIA agent, a whole lot of deceit, and stupidly-cheap demons. It's also every bit as challenging and difficult as its fore bearers, u...
