Ninja Gaiden 3 demo cuts in

Do you enjoy stabbing men? If so (and who doesn't?), you may have been put off by the lukewarm response to Ninja Gaiden 3, but you can now give it a go yourself, as a demo was released yesterday for Team Ninja's stab 'em up.

Do you enjoy stabbing men? If so (and who doesn't?), you may have been put off by the lukewarm response to Ninja Gaiden 3, but you can now give it a go yourself, as a demo was released yesterday for Team Ninja's stab 'em up.

The demo lets you cut fools on the streets of London, though that's just Wednesday to those of us who live here. You get to play with two new weapons sold as DLC too, the Falcon's Talons and Eclipse Scythe, so if you do take a shine in it you'll want to pony up extra coin off the bat.

Yesterday also brought the launch of the free Ultimate Ninja Pack DLC, which adds a new difficulty mode, headgear, Ultimate Trials, and other gubbins. It's only free until May 24, mind.

The demo landed on PlayStation 3 for everyone in yesterday's PlayStation Store update, but it's briefly a Gold exclusive on Xbox 360, as these things always are.

      This game...I did not like. The single player doesn't give you any opportunity to use weapons other then the basic sword, while you face enemies with all of the great weapons of NG's past. It made me sad to play.

        I just played 5 mins of the demo and the first thing it told me how to do was switch between scythe, claws, and dragon sword... Are you saying you cant do this in the full game?

          Not unless you buy some DLC, no. As I mentioned, the demo includes two DLC weapons.

      My favorite moments were, "OBJECTIVE UPDATED!!" and "...DOOR!"
