Ninja Gaiden II is a sequel to one of the greatest action adventure games ever made. It’s fast-paced, brutal, and extremely violent. However, it’s held back by technical issues, a broken camera, and cheap enemies. Ninja Gaiden II is hard but unlike the original game, it’s hard for all the wrong reasons.
Ninja Gaiden Black is one of the greatest and hardest action-adventure games you will ever play. The combat is deep and satisfying and one wrong move could you get you killed. The game requires you to become better in order to progress and every death is a learning experience. Even with it’s below average platforming and broken camera, Ninja Gaiden Black will still keep you coming back for more.
Thief Gold is a stealth game using lighting and sound to great effect but marred by clunky combat and some frustrating enemies. The game creates a wonderful atmosphere with it’s tone, setting, and storyline and the freedom of the gameplay more than makes up for the convoluted, but overall fantastic, map design.
