              but it doesn't suck. it just feels like a game out of time. it's a PS2 game with modern paint, for better or worse. i would rather play this than another far cry clone, uncharted/last of us clone, or game with shitty bamham combat.

                your example is an obscure game in a different genre that went against the grain in its time. does not really illustrate your point at all. if your point is "ps2 games are bad" just say that and have people laugh at you rather than cherry pick some obscure game no one cares about and has no relevancy to the discussion.

                >most people who "played it" dropped it without completing the first mission
                Sounds like major issue with the game. If you can't keep people playing past the first fricking mission then your game is prolly shit

                covered this here

                a single symptom is not a good enough cause for diagnosis. people will call things bad because it isn't instantly clicking with their gamer muscle memory and then drop it. says more about people being lazy and only wanting to play the same thing over and over again. earlier in the thread i brought up how i am tired of the same game being made over and over, be it an uncharted clone, last of us clone, or some form of bamham combat. people always praise these types of games because they don't actually have to think or learn anything new to play them. god forbid they have to actually learn a new playstyle for a new game.

                I finished it multiple times, it was fricking terrible. It is quite literally Devils Third 2 which was also bad.

                why would you play it multiple times if its fricking terrible?

                How could I have an opinion on a game I don't at least try to enjoy? Maybe it was better on higher difficulties or playing in a different way and I was wrong on my first playthrough.

                Turns out the game just sucked but I can't know unless I gave it a chance, you're sat here arguing with people about dropping the game and calling it shit. I played it more than it deserved and still call it shit.

                i'm saying a lot of people don't give it a fair shake and drop it too early. also just curious why you were playing it multiple times if you didn't like it, as that seems kind of moronic.

      >no doubt
      so you haven't played it but you are calling it trash. zoomers are unironically the ones who will hate it most, because it harkens back to an older era. it's a PS2 game in the modern day, the kind of game that a zoomer would play today and ask why gramps liked it back in the day.

      I constantly ask about A/AA quality games like this and nobody ever responds. How is it if I hate cinematic shit? Does it let you just PLAY?

      for the most part it does let you just play. there are cutscenes, but you can skip them. the cutscenes are not long and the story is almost nonsensical so they don't matter, but they hold a certain amount of low budget charm. the only thing that really impedes the gameplay is the post chapter minigames, but they are a couple minutes at most.

        I'm not calling it trash, I am saying that I wouldn't be surprised to learn that it is trash, and that's knowing nothing about it and judging it by its cover, which looks like it's trying to go for some battle royale zoomershooter fortnite-esque slop. I looked it up and apparently it's made by valhalla game studios, a canadian comany that was originally founded in japan, and was the creator of devil's third, but that was later bought by tencent and merged into a studio called soleli, which is responsible for this game. the steam page says it's a game "made by ninja gaiden and dead or alive creators" but who knows what the frick that's supposed to mean.

        at any rate, why don't you tell me why this game is supposed to be so good?

          it's a hack and slash game that feels like it belongs on the ps2. it feels good to play, the switching back and forth between cover shooter and hack and slash is very cool. evokes a lot of nostalgia while still being a modern game. a lot of the moronic practices in games that waste your time or want you to spend extra money are not here, and the gameplay actually requires your attention unlike bamham combat that has plagued so many "action" games over the last 15 years.

    Yeah, it actually is. At first the combat feels stiff and weird but if you don't get filtered and learn to guard cancel and it suddenly makes alot more sense because you realize the combat was designed around you doing this. You can guard cancel into aim down sights which is really cool because this means you can slash an enemy up with your katana, guard cancel into a shotgun blast and then do a finisher. I'm about 3/4ths of the way through already planning how I'm gonna approach my 2nd playthrough on Hard.

      this shit is so funny, it's cheesy and obviously written by an autist who doesn't understand regular interactions in normal situations. kind of like when stone orders cigarettes from the waitress. it's so bad, but it's endearing and full of SOVL. i love it.

    shooting was so weird and uncomfortable that I didn't wanted to do it at all, combat didn't stick together, jokes didn't really land and voice acting sounded like diversity hires recorded in an amateur basement studio. I didn't have the patience to put up with this shit to go through the game to the end

      >shooting was so weird and uncomfortable that I didn't wanted to do it at all, combat didn't stick together
      combat was great. the interplay of ranged and melee felt great. some enemies are better dealt with guns, some sword. you have to move back and forth between the two. you just didn't get it.
      >voice acting sounded like diversity hires
      they're dutch.
      >jokes didn't really land
      the reason he had 4 balls was the same reason you don't like this game. because you are being fricked in the ass
      >I didn't have the patience to put up with this shit to go through the game to the end
      oh so i was right when i said

      most people who "played it" dropped it without completing the first mission.
      [...]
      metascores don't mean anything.

      . you played for a little bit and weren't getting the dopamine hits of lootboxes so you dropped it.

        I'm not a zoomer. I've played enough games not to put up with mediocrity just to impress one online person who's seen god in a 4/10 game.

          you don't have to be a zoomer to be a lootbox goblin.

    It was better than Devil's Third if that counts for anything.

    good game, I've done several playthroughs at this point on most difficulties

    recently got a patch that balanced some stuff, but it's still rough (and always will be)

    because they're all ESL, it's part of the world building

    >Itagaki left Team Ninja and went on to make Devil's Third, which was fricking awful
    >The other Team Ninja members who left the company went on to make Wanted: Dead, which was fricking horrible
    I don't get it. How did these people manage to make Ninja Gaiden Black and Ninja Gaiden 2? Those are some of the best action games of all time.

      ninja gaiden being good was all itagaki. a thing people forget is that ninja gaiden were massive triple AAAA tier games when they came out. Itagaki only works well when he has a huge budget.

      Their leads for the gameplay designer, artists, and programmer NG1 stayed with Team Ninja, but Itagaki’s key underlings Matsui, Ehara, and Okamoto left with Itagaki and made Devils Third. I think output of Valhalla and Soleil is a reminder that games are a team effort

      Janky but soulful game that looks like from an older era both in its gameplay and dialogues meanwhile pic related cannot stop seething and bumping the thread.

      you didn't give it a fair shake.
      >spend 15 hours and multiple playthroughs
      obviously something was making it stick in your head and coming back for more.
      why is this hard to grasp?

    They released an update a month back making some gameplay tweaks like changes to the cover system. Couldn’t say if it was anything truly meaningful though.

    It was like a cross between a Ninja Team and Grasshopper Manufacture. I enjoyed it a lot, but it's a B game and you need to go in with that expectation.
