Screen Rant Writes: Team Ninja knows fans want a new Ninja Gaiden game, but if Ryu Hayabusa is going to come back, there are some things that the series needs to fix.
- Better story, not that it has to be very deep though - Better level design, on par or even exceed NG1 - Better enemies design, NG3's enemies design were boring and repetitive
Agreed and bring back the dodge roll. The dash was trash.
Yep. I also prefer dodge roll than dash.
I'd say just re-add the dodge roll and have both but with different properties. As long as they made both tactically useful in their own ways, it could be really interesting.
- No NG has had a good or deep story. Its best has only been about action and enemies. - Likewise, level design was stages where you fought enemies, which said shallow story connected. - NG3 utterly forgot that enemies where either trained and highly skilled psychotic killers, or literal demons who'd crack a baby's skull open for fun. At this point Nioh and Shadows Die Twice have taken NG spot.
NG Black beats them both. Agree that NG3 was trash. Nioh and Shadows can occupy the spot until NG makes a triumphant return.
I take it you never played NG3: Razor's Edge. That game fixed the lack of difficulty. Maybe a little too well with how unfair some of the enemies and bosses were. Still not on par with the previous 2 games but miles ahead of the original NG3 release and well worth playing. And whats this shit about story. Few action games come close to being on the same level of quality as NG 1&2 and having "good or deep story" didn't get them any closer to it. "Its best" sets it apart and far ahead of almost any other game in the genre except for DMC 3-5 and the Bayonetta series. NG 1&2, along with other games like Doom, prove how little story matters when you get the important aspect of a game (gameplay) right. Not that Sekiro isn't a great game. The only thing that keeps it from standing shoulder to shoulder with NG 1&2 is its lack of weapon variety and its frame rate issues.
I definitely prefer the Zelda-esque game progression. NG2 was still a great game though.
Don't give Ryu some crazy weakness that interrupts literally anything he is doing in order to do some BS animation of him wincing in pain! That garbage ruined NG3
Bring back the difficulty of the first game both 3 and Yaiba (yes I played that POS game) had laughably easy difficulty that it wasn't even funny.
With games like NiOh, I don't miss ninja Gaiden at all.
Completely different sub-genres, dude.
Nioh was totally different than Ninja Gaiden...
Might as well say “wish games like Forza I don’t miss Mario kart”
Bring back the difficulty.
I want a NGS remaster
I want a Ninja Gaiden Black and Ninja Gaiden 2 remaster for all consoles/PC. Complete with peak difficulties intact and maybe some new weapons and outfits. The problem with the Sigma series was that 1) they removed most of the puzzle elements 2) they nerfed the difficulty and 3) they seriously reduced the number of enemies on screen at a time in many places.
hope the game is more like the first ninja gaiden. it was nice and hard, and puzzling fun.
Ninja Gaiden 2 was also very hard, and just as good as NG1
i found ninja gaiden 2 pretty easy. it didnt have that difficulty like the first. and the levels where straight forward, it wasnt very puzzling.
I just remember playing on one of the harder difficulties and not being able to beat the giant skeleton dragon.
-Level design and music of NG1. -Gameplay of NG2. -Option for couch and online co-op campaign. -Couch and online VS mode. -Lots of enemy variety. -Lots of weapon variety.
