Ninja Gaiden 3 tips and boss battle guide


Day One

1 - Steel Spider

This robo-arachnid is pretty simple—you’ll be fighting two of these at once in a later level. Basically, you just gotta cut its legs until they break off. Watch out for its AoE electric field attack when you’re up close. If you stand in front of the machine, it will use an unblockable flamethrower attack. Also, it’s equipped with a rather nasty rocket launcher, so get ready to slide around while on the offensive.  Once its legs are destroyed, a generator core is exposed. Jump up on its back and rip it open.

Master Ninja notes:

You know that rocket launcher? Yeah, that thing will kill you pretty damn quick. When you see it illuminate, slide away immediately. Patience is key here, don’t get greedy and try to land too many leg hits at the risk of your own life.

2 – Regent of the Mask

This dude is a pain in the ass. You’ll fight him, like, 800 times by the end of the game, and every encounter is shockingly similar. First, you’ll want to damage his offense—don’t go rushing in yourself. Wait until he whiffs a few times, then punish with a few quick attacks. He typically uses a two- or three-hit melee combo, so be wary. Additionally, if his fists glow red that means he’ll use an unblockable throw combo, which is practically an instant kill on higher difficulties. Don’t let this connect.

Eventually he’ll get knocked out a window and you’ll continue the fight. Outside, he beefs up his offensive by using a three-hit strong attack combo, and adding one additional throw to his charge attacks. When going in for the kill, try to restrict yourself to a single strong attack before sliding out of his range. He can also do a charging slice attack—you’ll know he’s about to use this when his body glows red.

Master Ninja notes:

Same boss mechanics, but have fun dodging his one-hit kills.

    You guys are really bad,you all are hating on this game without any reason,soon they will release a new DLC that includes 2 new weapons (And i hope that they will add more weapons with the time especially my favorite weapon the Vigoorian Flail),This game is still not easy even if played on the Master Ninja Difficulty and if you compared it to NG2 it is easier since they have added "Steel and Bone"Tactic,I liked the game so much between the gameplay,story,how to cut someone off,but not only that,you can do CRASH THEM TOO!!!,I rated the game and gave it 10 out of 10,it deserves,And i haven't played the online yet due to the problem of the online pass it doesn't work but they will fix it...

    So you're making a guide to a game that you guys gave a 3 to?

    I came her to make the same remark... except that I suspect Tecmo or somebody is in fact paying them to put these guides up. Otherwise, why would they bother?

    I always crack up whenever I see a guide for a game that the site bashed shamelessly XD "Yeah! it fucking sucks!... But we cal help you out if you were stupid enough to buy it anyway..."
  • SuwaidiSama - March 24, 2012 6:25 a.m.

    Just tell me why you are hating this game?,you are hating it because you play with just one weapon for all of the time?,you are hating it due to the story of this game?,And your top mistake when you call us "stupids enough" if we bought it,all what i understand from you is that you bought it and played it too,that's all what i understand.

    Then your understanding is pretty limited... I don't need to buy the game to tell it's crap, it shows in the gameplay videos and in the details given on reviews. Also, you misunderstand "hate" with making fun of a company that gives guides to a game they rated pretty poorly. If you actually liked it, then hey, good for you, but don't be all whiny and bitchy because others don't happen to share your opinion.
  • SuwaidiSama - March 26, 2012 4 a.m.

    You don't have played this game and you already judged it,I am not hating you or anything because you hate NG3 lol,If i hated you for just a game i will be like a chill dude,you too,you should not misunderstand me,It does not mean that i don't like you,I want to tell you that you just should try it before judging on this game,not only NG3,all the games in this world,Believe me that this game have a bad rating due to some users but i purly give it a 10\10 rating,If i said something bad to you and made feel like a "hater" then i am very sorry i didn't mean to...
