NINJA GAIDEN 3 is a third person perspective hack 'n' slash action-adventure game for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 consoles. The player assumes the role of a ninja by the name of Ryu Hyabusa who is dispatched to London by the Japanese Ministry for External Affairs, where terrorists have taken over Westminster and are holding hostages within 10 Downing Street.. The game was classified '18' for strong bloody violence.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '15' state 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable'. The game features strong gory violence throughout as the player-controlled character dispatches hundreds of opponents, mostly by slashing them or by impaling them on his katana (sword). It is also possible to use a bow and arrow and to throw daggers whilst climbing walls. Little is seen in terms of injury detail but killing opponents invariably produces copious blood spurts and blood effects splash onto the screen. In some cases it is possible to cut off limbs or heads. The game is therefore more appropriately classified at '18'. Some button combinations produce signature kills that are seen in slow motion and/or close-up. However, it is not possible to mutilate fallen opponents or otherwise inflict post-mortem damage. Although there are elements of problem solving and progressing through the playing environment, there is a strong focus on killing opponents. In the opening chapter, these opponents are human but they become increasingly fantastical, including zombies and reptilian monsters, as the game progresses.

NINJA GAIDEN 3 also includes infrequent strong language.
