Ninja Gaiden Master Collection Review – Sometimes you have to settle down

first two jaden ninja Games are not perfect. Really far from it. Regardless, they are two of the best action games that you can find anywhere. They have tight and rewarding mechanics, highly skilled ceilings, and some of the deadliest foes on average. Ninja Gaiden Master Collection Not a final compilation. Instead, it’s few Minimum Ports One of the lesser versions of two of the world’s greatest action games, as well as the bad version of Ninja Gaiden 3, Razer Edge. There is a lot of fun here. But the series honestly deserved a lot better, and I don’t buy excuses as to why he couldn’t get it.

What is here then? 3D Editions jaden ninja Toys. The installments fans really wanted were undoubtedly ninja gaiden black, an improved version of the original 2004 release, and Ninja Gaiden IIThe sequel that took chaos to new heights. Instead, the Ninja Gaiden Master Collection contains both ninja gaiden sigma games and Ninja Gaiden 3: Blade Edge حافة, which is the heavily modified version of the third game. To be clear, all three of these are good games. There is so much to enjoy from sigma variables and even blade edge It is a solid title.

If you’re not familiar with all kinds of hullabaloo, it’s easy to fall apart. sigma 1, Another version of the first game, released on PlayStation 3 with better character models, additional playable character, and some additional content. Why do fans prefer ninja gaiden black? mostly because of sigma 1 Cuts content, including puzzles and some fights. It also made some changes to the game’s balance, including removing some of the boss’ weaknesses. Also, additional playable character classes are mandatory, well, not all of them are great, nor is the character itself.

I used to be surrounded

The reasons that Ninja Gaiden II It is much simpler favorite. The game was originally released on Xbox 360, and the PS3 couldn’t do some of the same things. As a result, far fewer enemies appear on the screen at once and they are Poetry spongy. The blood spray when removing enemy limbs was too much on the PS3 to handle, so it was replaced by a strange purple mist. The PS Vita version of the game somewhat mitigated this by adding the blood option instead of the fog.

Now, these versions of sigma The games contain a lot of content from the PS Vita versions, such as additional challenges and modes. For what reason was the choice of blood for sigma 2 not here. I have no idea why. sigma 2 It is actually a better game than its Xbox 360 version in some ways. The graphics look nicer, the spamming enemies aren’t nearly as widespread, and there’s some extra content including bosses. Of course, some content has been cut from the original as well. However, the frantic carnage of the initial release is simply the best. Also, very similar to how sigma 1 puzzle pieces ninja gaiden black, you don’t even need to find keys in sigma 2 to open doors. The games are unnecessarily simplified.

The ideal outcome would be that elements from two versions of the games would combine to produce definitive versions of each. Instead, Team Ninja said it lost its source code. It is difficult to understand how this could happen. After all, ninja gaiden sigma Released a year later NG II. This isn’t a long period of time for the game’s source code to disappear, but it’s what made us believe it. As for the blade edgeIt makes a lot of sweeping changes to the original Ninja Gaiden 3 Which makes it a much better experience. It’s not even close to the level of the other two games. But, despite many poor design choices and a lot of linearity, it’s okay.

History lesson over

If you want to know why I think a trip down memory lane is necessary, it is because I think it is necessary to have that information to understand the worst thing about Ninja Gaiden Master Collection. All three of these games are pretty much straight ports that have been dumped on PC. You can adjust the resolution of each game via the special playback options in the Steam menu, but that’s it. There are no in-game menus, no graphics options, nothing. The game starts and a window pops up. You enlarge it and it is full screen.

At least the games are working fine. All three work flawlessly at 4K, even with a weaker GPU. I didn’t notice any screen tearing or stuttering, and I didn’t experience any crashes. The only problem I noticed was trying to shut down Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 The program always closed for me. Regardless, the bare minimum was done here. I’m glad the ports work so well, though, as the array could have been much worse in many ways. There is a lot to be said for simple jobs, especially considering similar endeavors.

But what about the games themselves? ninja gaiden sigma is the lead here. It’s not quite as weak as a sequel, although I need to mention that Ninja Gaiden II He is my favorite in the series. sigma It’s a great game, though, even if it’s not without its problems. The camera is the biggest of these; I got horribly old. Most of my deaths while playing were simply, “Well, I can’t see.” But it was the same in ninja gaiden black. Some design elements look outdated after 17 years of progress.

A little effort would have gone a long way

However, make no mistake. All three of these games can be cheap – in particular sigma, But Especially Razor’s Edge. sigma Allows you to revive full health using a rebirth spell. But you can’t turn it off. If you’re only trying to use these when you need them most, you’ll have to exit back into the menu and reload your save. sigma 2Fortunately, lets not use it. sigma 1 And the 2 Only use manual save, so if you ever want to redo a partition for any reason, it will always be some kind of pain.

blade edge It has autosave checkpoints, but the game does not contain healing items. You often end up fighting ridiculous waves of enemies and have no way to recover yourself, other than buying a health upgrade mid-battle. This game simplifies the series so intensely that playing it after the others is weird as hell. But what’s even more bizarre is to think about how important it is to remake the game more like it Ninja Gaiden II. But since this game is not here, new players will be surprised at how strange the transition from the relatively horrific, almost bloodless game can be. sigma 2 To madness mixed with blood blade edge.

I would like to emphasize once again that although we did not get the better versions of the first two, the sigma The games are definitely good. It is perfectly playable and has a lot to offer. But after waiting so long, I really wished for more. Even if there are no definitive versions of the first two games, even if black And the NG II Not here, little things could have been done to make sigma The versions are more attractive to fans of the series. This is honestly what makes my feelings towards Ninja Gaiden Master Collection Very mixed. I love jaden ninja (I’m silly too I hate Ninja GaidenBut you know what I mean.) It’s frustrating to see the series finally being recognized again after so long, only to be a disinterested and half-hearted release like this.

I still enjoy playing these games. I hope depositors will do something sigma 2 To give us a title a little closer to the game it could have been. But we’ll find out soon. If you are a fan of the series or you are a newcomer who wants to try it, there are many reasons to buy and play Ninja Gaiden Master Collection. But that doesn’t mean we’ll forget how you butchered our son, Rio, with such a lackluster effort.
