  1. If this is a genre you like or have been tempted to try out, N3 is a fantastic addition.

    But for those of us who love a bit of fruity melodrama to go with our genocidal tendencies, N3's simple, responsive controls--along with the singular, satisfying thrill of netting 2,000 kills in one stage--is exhilarating. [Oct. 2006, p.80]
  3. An enjoyable gaming experience that left me wanting more but feeling empty at the same time.
  4. Most players will become annoyed and tired of the insulting gameplay and half-hearted design and put the game down for good after the first night of playing it.
  5. A reasonable action title that manages to serve a purpose on the Xbox 360. Unfortunately the game quickly suffers from issues of repetition.
  6. Disappointing. Everything about this title feels like it needs more work, from the cut-scenes to the broken A.I. of your allies.
  7. It is never made clear what the title “Ninety-Nine Nights” means. My guess is that it’s the suggested waiting period before purchasing this dangerous, infuriating, broken game.

    I usually don't like games of this sort... but, N3 changed my mind. This game has kept me hooked from the time I started playing it, I usually don't like games of this sort... but, N3 changed my mind. This game has kept me hooked from the time I started playing it, until I beat it. I did get a little frustrated during some parts of the game, but I never felt that I was being cheated. I always had the kind of weapon I needed. But usually I would do something stupid and get killed. So then I would try some different button combinations and such, and next thing you know, I excel to the next level. N3 gets alot of respect points in my book. Because it doesn't let players become spoiled and get a "god" like complex, however it makes a player feel powerful in the game, but reminds them that they are not immortal. And that they wont just be able to blaze through everyone effortlessly. Expand

    If you want to press one button a lot for a couple of hours, this is your game. If you want any kind of tactical depth, look elsewhere.

    If i wanted to push just one button all the time, I would have stayed with my ex-wife!.

Beaucoup de flou dans ce jeu fort vilain qui finalement se veut le concurrent direct de la dynastie des guerriers, la dynastie particulièrement infâme et pathétique dans le genre "BLT" de Koei et à ce titre c'est totalement réussi : c'est aussi nul à chier que son modèle !
