With Club Nintendo closing soon I've been looking for cheap games to get for CN coins so I can get platinum this year. I know this isn't a stellar game or a super stellar deal, but I had a gift card and with store pickup it was $7.49 total. Maybe this should have gone in the new Club Nintendo thread, but I was afraid it would get buried and not many people would see it.

I ordered this the other day. I didn't even realize I would get 60 coins out of it.

They're still good until 3/31 to redeem and you have until 6/30 to use them to buy something on CN

It's alright, not as technically precise as the other ninja gaiden's but not super easy by any means imo.  The Razor's Edge update added a bunch of stuff so it'll keep you busy.

Ninja Gaiden 3 on Xbox 360 got a 3/10 from IGN, where as Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge on WiiU got a 7.6

The wii u version is actually very playable and is much harder than the other versions. Not that many would take it off the shelf and actually play it other than to enter the pin for the coins.

I thought only Nintendo developed games had coins?

Nope. Others do. Hotel Dusk did too as well as many more.

This is definitely better than the vanilla version but nowhere near the first two games.

That's what I thought too since there's only a handful of third party retail that have codes.  This is one of them though according to the list.  Had a copy sitting in arm's reach for months that I got from the TRU clearance and would never have thought to open.

It's a Wii U thing where there's only a couple non-first party games that have coins for the retail version.  Nearly every 3DS game gives coins along with most later DS and Wii games which made it weird.

If anyone wants the game but not the coins...Let me know, maybe we can work something out.

I'm not at my PC so I can't link it but if you go to CN -> how it works in that first bubble there's a link to a list of all eligible games and how many coins they give.

Also FYI: Trades in at BB for $3. So if you're just looking for 60 coins and a quick play and trade, not a bad way to spend $4.

It's easily worth picking up to play for a weekend. Nothing you're going to go back to in the long run, but fun and difficult.

Got this on sale for 10$ last year. If you are not looking for the club nintendo points and want it to just play the game I would recommend staying away from this. Terrible game. I was big fan of the first and second games. Decided to marathon all 3 when I got this one and it just doesn't compare.

Thanks OP.  Did a pickup at my local Walmart.  Hopefully it will go through.  All I need is 30 coins to reach platinum so this works out perfect!

Personally I thought this one was better than vanilla NG2.

The important thing to remember is that it is a patch on an awful core game so when you suddenly are thrown against a gunship or cyborg T. rex boss fight that's worse than even the most garbage boss from the other NG games it is to be expected. You can choke it down and get back to the great core combat.

LOL...no way is this game better than the amazing original Ninja Gaiden 2 or Black for that matter.

Even with its flaws NG2 was the most intense and rewarding action game I've ever played.

Not sure if sarcasm, or actual strategy?

People were flipping best buy trades like crazy a year or so ago over a couple dollars. Everyday. There have been crazier things happen.

You can only register one game per Club Nintendo account, so all that would amount to is owning several CN accounts with 60 coins on them.

Is this even worth getting if I already have it on PS3 (NG3:Razor's Edge, not NG3)?

If anyone gets a copy of this and doesn't want to the coins I will split the cost of the game for just the coins.

Yeah but you can make sub accounts and all the coins pool to your main account. People do this all the time.
