Will Ninja Theory Finally Get Some Love For Making A Great Game?

So they've put out yet another super entertaining game...but will they finally be rewarded for their efforts? Ninja Theory deserves respect NOW, right? (Culture, DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

i dont think they deserve it, they have made 4 games, all oh whish are good except for kung fu chaos, but they arent all that, there are companies that have been making great games for years and still have yet to get the true recognition and respect they deserve, for example ubisoft, they have always made great games, but they just started getting talked about once AC2 came out, same can be said for suckerpunch which they still havnt gotten to that status, and theyve made really good games, heck naughty dog just started getting placed in top 10 developer list after UC2 came out and theyve made amazing games even before that.

So its getting 9s in reviews, more like 8s on average, yet the author only talks up the 9s while admitting that the boss fights are flawed?

The gaming community as a whole isn't going to recover from this one is it?

No, because they took an existing franchise and tried to change it into something else. If it wasn't a franchise already, people's reactions would be MUCH different.

You know what...? Screw this. They did their job. Whether we like it or not. It's business. If this is their lucky break then good for them. Time to move on people. Instead of bitching, put your money where your mouth is. Buy it or don't.

Well said real tired of the bitching.

I like NT. I hope the game does well. It really deserves it. They didn't get a lot of credit for Enslaved but I enjoyed that game and it has a great story.

I loved heavenly sword and enslaved. yeah they may bitch and moan about some things, but what game company doesn't nowadays.
I'm looking forward to playing the new DMC, and if people give it a chance they might like it too.

Most game companies don't. Never heard ATLUS complain about... anything. Never heard Sony Santa Monica complain. LOTS of the biggest names out there don't complain.

It's not about liking it or not. It's about everything surrounding the production of this game.

Why is it everybody wants to forget about that?
stuntman_mike  +   800d ago

totally disagree if it's not about liking the games you play then why are you playing them, just to moan??

it would be a different story if the game looked and played like a pile of crap which it doesn't, and no game company is perfect. NT was asked to make a new DMC and this is what they have made and the original DMC team approved.

if you don't like the game fair enough but what surrounded the game wasn't all that bad, they made a game some people didn't like the change if people feel that strongly vote with your wallet and they will never make a DMC again.

"We didn't make any money making Kung Fu chaos, Heavenly Sword, Enslaved Odyssey to the West or DMC: Devil May Cry"

---Ninja Theory
A lot of the heat they take is unwarranted. People complain that they changed too much but that's what generally happens when a new dev takes on an old IP.
Godmars290  +   801d ago
Capcom has been taking heat for moves like this well before this instance and are as much if not more to blame. Still NT didn't help matters by their initial reaction.

Ninja Theory needs to make another good game WITHOUT saying a single word and letting the gameplay speak for itself.
Godmars290  +   801d ago
And I bet you it'll look post-apocalyptic. Be grungy and dirty, and have a well scripted but very predictable plot.

Not from me. I love DMC back when it was anime styled stories and artstyle. Not this low budget Scyfy channel look and generic scyfy movie type story.

Same happened to Resident Evil. I saw in 4 that they were moving away from the original set up. 5 hurt my feelings, Revelations almost went back to its roots, and 6 confuses me. Here's hoping they don't outsource Monster Hunter
