It's just weird that it's like 'no, don't kill me', and then they give you no choice. Is this like a subversion of the crazy ninja assassin thing?

I could see it as the best-selling of the NGs, though.

Edit: I'm not one to suggest Endurance Runs, but this is dumb enough that I think it'd work.

Yea, that part struck me as kind of weird. Killing the guy outright seems like more of a Kratos thing to do.

There was a specific moment in the NG3 QL that was telling. Ryan was getting pretty amped up watching the craziness as a half dozen dudes were getting ripped up in a stream of special attacks but Jeff, who was playing, felt nearly the opposite and was disconnected from the moment as his actions werenít directly related to the stuff on screen. And the regular combat was repetitive and simple.

I think that says a lot about the design goals. make something look cool and badass and over the top. but it has seemingly come at the expense of how the combat feels

And, FWIW, Iím not a guy who loves hard games but I loved the original NG combat and did fairly well in the game since it controlled so well and rewarded patience and timing.

Since when did Ryu need the OK to kill fucking enemies? Since when did said enemies cower and run from you? Since when did a fucking giant robot scares you so much that you have to go hide in an alley like a scaredy cat, and then don't have the ability to make your way up a fucking building but only so slowly? I'm a fucking ninja, I'm fucking Ryu and I know what to do, I don't need Anya telling me to go here or there.

Shit, I don't want to watch this anymore. This fucking game sucks.

Did you watch the video at least? I'm not complaining about a ninja having to use stealth, I'm complaining about what passes for a stealth section in this game.

Plus NG's definition of a ninja has never been a stealthy assassin. Have you even played the other games?

Watched the video? I played it last year. I was saying some of the same things that people here are but back then no one believed me. I just think the whole thing is hilarious at this point.

The problem is that it's a Ninja Gaiden game for people that don't like Ninja Gaiden. It's like giving the guy in the gimp mask a back massage. He don't want it.

I'm actually kinda surprised how much the missing dismemberment bothers me. In concept it's merely a bummer that they've taken it out, but seeing it missing in action like this really drives home how big of a deal it is. It's just a very obvious disconnect between the on-screen action and what is actually supposed to happen to the enemies.

I've played through 1, black and 2. The aesthetic of the game is besides the point for me, IMO. The quicktime events are far between and the action seems much tighter. The story they are going for for this game seems quite 'out of fiction' for what an ninja gaide game should be but eh/

Jeff was not jumping, dashing or sparrow attacking enough. He was not completing combos, nor ever did the izuna drop. The disorientation seems really cool and just intensifies the whole 'im a badass' aspect these games always strives for. Also, this game doesn't look sterile like 2.

I'm referring to how the game isn't as punishing. You had to be a badass in NG1 and 2 because there was no other way to complete the game. Now the game makes you think you're a badass when you mash x and y a bunch.

The point is that it seems you don't actually need to do any of that stuff to get by though. Whereas in the previous games you needed a pretty good handle on the finer points of the combat system to have any success, even on the standard difficulty. Here you just seem to be able to mash your way through (on normal at least).

I think you can button mash thru the first level of black until you meet the first boss more or less, and Jeff nearly died on the red masked dude.

Times have changed. Normal isn't as it was in NG1. That is what hard is for.
