It came from the shadows, and to the shadows it shall return. Here are the best ninja games on the PlayStation 2.
games likes these are a dead, what a shame.
Everyone is focused on open world unfortunately 😒 2000s had some of the best games in general. Just enough depth that you don't have to sign your life away to complete a game.
Seriously, I miss classic character action hack n slash games. Now everything is either huge open world gruel or a souls-like, often both.
Ikr? I would love a new Tenchu game. It doesn't need to be a big budget with epic scope or other BS. Just a fun game like before with updated graphics and some quality of life improvements.
I'm hoping the success of armored core they'll be more inclined to revisit Tenchu as it really showed that a smaller scope game with a tight refined experience can be a success as well as the huge complex open RPG affairs. Still bums me out that Sekiro started as a new Tenchu, but they changed their mind halfway through development.
Man what I'd give for a new Tenchu game
you almost did get one but instead u got Sekiro (Great game) maybe next time
Sekiro is nice consolation for sure. But still would like Tenchu
*ARAGAMI 1 and 2 for a current fix **Wrath of Heaven is probably the greatest ninja/stealth game ever. Shinobi was okay. Your sword drained your health. So you had to constantly keep moving. You couldn't take your time to even explore or even breath. Nightshade rectified this.
These remakes and remasters are must-haves in this next generation.
Gunstar Heroes was made by Treasure. I'm not sure if that IP actually belongs to Sega. If it does, the ONLY modern day developer that I think would do that game justice is Housemarque. Maybe Sega could collaborate with Sony to let them make a modern day Gunstar Heroes. I definitely think Shinobi and Afterburner need modern day remakes though. I feel like there are stronger Sega IP's than some of the ones that were listed such as... Vector Man Comix Zone Virtual On Ranger X Jet Set Radio Landstalker Eternal Champions
A new eternal champions would be sick
Phantasy star Online 1 and Phantasy star universe.
Sadly I think that is unlikely because of Phantasy Star Online 2
Totally agreed. That’s a good start. Here’s a few more I think would covert well. Virtua Fighter Fighting Vipers Sonic Adventure Condemned Shinobi Altered Beast Shenmue (properly supported)
Condemned criminal origins!
Amazing series, wish more people had known about it back in the day!
Probably still my favorite horror game of all time. I’ve been into that kind of shit my whole life so I don’t scare easy but condemned got me. When you’re looking down a hallway and see people peaking out. The heart was kicking lmao. I need to play it again. I played a year or 2 ago and it still held up. Graphics are obviously dated but just the premise. Like pulling pipes off of the wall and shit. You don’t see that anymore. I’d take the same game with a new can of paint, it still feels good. Multiplat remaster do it. I don’t think criminal origins ever came to PlayStation.
Shining Force, come on man.
10/10 for including Shinobi
As hard as it was, the Shinobi remake that came out on PS2 was decent. But yes, a new remake would be great. Always loved that series.
Ristar, Vector Man, Space Harrier, Shinobi, Golden Axe, Penguin Land, Fantasy Zone, Alien Syndrome, Alien Soldier, Clockwork Knight, Knights into Dreams, Golden Axe Warrior. Personally I would love to see Sega remake my favorite arcade game Moonwalker I still love that game played the hell out of it in the arcade.
I want a Spell caster, fantasy zone, and space harrier.
Kid Chameleon deserves a second look.
I'm going to come out and say I just wish we had a decent Shadow The Hedgehog game. I know it comes under the Sonic IP but still..
Guardian Heroes! ARGH!
It’s a hell of a back catalogue to have - you know, better to have more than you can realistically remake than not enough. But that leads to the other problem - how do you as a company choose what to focus on without annoying some subsection of your fan base?
Where did he come from, where did Shinobi go?
