Master Murder Ninja Ryu Hayabusa turned to PC today with Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, which brings together the hack ‘n’ slash trilogy that ran between 2004 and 2012. They are great games and murderously difficult. Unfortunately, the first two games come as their Sigma versions (which many consider worse than the originals), and many gamers report that the PC port is rather barebones. Shame.
Master Collection has discovered versions of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor̵
It’s a double shame that the PC release sounds a bit pants. If running windowsed by default, without an option to change it – click the maximize button in the window. And if you want to change the screen resolution, you have to … go to the game’s Properties menu in your Steam library, and select screen options from there? (Really, this solution is listed on the Steam page.) What is this. And even though I would never play a game like this with a keyboard and mouse, I know some weird people do, and that’s not an option here. Ninja Gaiden may be from 2004, but that does not mean that the PC port should be too. Reviews from players on Steam also address other technical and content issues.
Cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes from the originals are also absent. It’s nice to have these games on PC at last, and many players seem happy with it, but you guys.
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection is out on Steam for £ 30 / € 36 / $ 36, which includes a 10% launch discount that runs until the 16th. It’s also on Switch, PS4 and Xbone.
