Earlier this year Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja released Ninja Gaiden 3, which was supposed to bring Ryu Hayabusa back to his roots. Instead we were given a game that was riddled with weak AI, and a few "pivotal" moments early that went in a direction that many considered to be anti-characteristic of Hayabusa's code of ethics. (The part in Level 1 where Ryu cuts down a soldier pleading for his life was the lowest point in Ninja Gaiden's history.)
Fortunately Team Ninja has responded to our sour feelings in the best ways possible: by taking out the offending elements and replacing them with moments that made Ninja Gaiden what it was in the Wii U version. Does that mean Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is a better experience? Yes. Does it mean the game is now on par with its predecessors? Not quite.
