Do yourself a favor and just purchase the Ninja Gaiden Master Collection for your platform of choice (I'd avoid the Switch version)Title refers to the 3D games.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know, it goes like this for the first game:
Which has me wondering, which one should I try to play? I've always heard that Black is the better one, but since I don't have an Xbox playing that one is going to be complicated.
- Ninja Gaiden.
- Ninja Gaiden Black, which is the same game but with additional stuff.
- Ninja Gaiden Sigma, which is Black but with additional stuff but also some changes to the core gameplay and the visual aspects (bloom up the ass, apparently, which was the style at the time).
So I wanted to ask you fine people at GAF: does it really matter? will I miss on the true experience if I don't play Black? or is it perfectly fine to go Sigma?
Also, what about the sequels? And finally... any bros here have any experience with the Master Collection on PC? Looks like a shit port but some people claim it got fixed.
Contrary to what some purists will say, Ninja Gaiden Black is not significantly better than Ninja Gaiden Sigma. Ninja Gaiden Sigma is a perfectly viable version of Ninja Gaiden 1 to play.
Ninja Gaiden sigma 2 is simply inferior to the original Xbox 360 version of the game, but it it is only bad in comparison. Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma is still a very fun game to play. Razors Edge is the best version of NG3. Maybe one day you'll be able to play the original Ninja Gaiden 2, which will then be a perfect excuse to play through the game again.
