Dropped another $10. The price I was waiting for but there is still a ton of these. Any chance it drops to $19.99 or will they convert these to used next? Decisions...

Man oh man that's tempting. I'd like to wait on $20 but don't know if these would survive that long.
also inb4 people saying the game is worth $1.

the game isn't terrible, for 29, with some crappy figure I would say a meh-deal, but 19.99 go for it... lol

I think I'm also in at $20. But then I'd have to get the previous games too. Only played the first remake on Xbox. Thought it was fun but so hard I couldn't enjoy it. Too punishing and unforgiving. I heard they added an easier mode in later releases. Guess I'll try out the free Vita version I picked up yesterday with PS+ and see.

That's the fun of the series, well, before NG3.

I think everyone should wait for $20, the core game can be bought pretty cheap, so the best deal would be to wait for the overall price for this thing to go down.

You heard correct. The Wii U version actually feels like NG...not as good as NGB and NG2 but better than NG3 and IMHO Sigma 2.

That's alright, Sigma 3 will be out for the PS3 & 360 soon enough.

The original creator's (Itagaki) games have no easy modes. That list consists of:

Ninja Gaiden (Original Xbox)

Ninja Gaiden Black (Original Xbox) <-- the one you played and couldn't handle. This one actually has an easy mode via Ninja Dog which if you died several times in a row on Normal, it'll pop up. You must have seen it. Maybe Ninja Dog mode was too hard for you too. ;)

Ninja Gaiden 2 (Xbox 360)

Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword (NDS)

The rest of the Ninja Gaiden games made by the current inferior producer (Hayashi) are ports of the originals listed above with easy mode right from the start. He also made Ninja Gaiden 3 and was tanked pretty badly, but still playable surprisingly. Yeah, you should play the free Sigma Plus. I played it and I'm already on chapter 4 in just an hour or so of play on Hard difficulty. It's quite easy compares to Ninja Gaiden 2, granted I've played part 1 in many different flavors at least 10X in the past decade and just as many times on NG2, all on Master Ninja difficulties.

Bottom line is NG1 is an balanced action adventure game. NG2 turns up the action 10X and dials down the adventure 100%. NG3 is... well... broken.

As a big fan of the rebooted series, I have every single game released, even the broken NG3. I was almost ready to buy a Wii U just for this game to see how much the game has been corrected but decided against that idea because there are only 2 games I really want to play on the system (NG3 RE and Bayonetta 2). It's just not worth it to invest in a system for only 2 games, and an already obsolete one at that right from the start. Also, Nintendo online still can't do things right. Xbox Live of 2002 was better than what Nintendo is currently doing. I'll just patiently wait for Sigma 3 which is bond to happen. Don't believe NG3 RE is selling that well on the Wii U so Tecmo will find more ways to milk it. It's the trend post Itagaki by the new Team Ninja and new Tecmo/Koei.

There were 2 issues with these if memory serves.

A lot of statues were either broken in the box or missing weapons (cant honestly remember which, i just remember having to refund a few)

Also, some wire missing online pass'.

NG3 was terrible. Just so many dumb problems and no where near the polished game that NG1 and NG2 was.

Take that thirty dollars and apply it to a purchase of Metal Gear Rising.

That is essentially the game NG3 should have been anyways.

When portions of the game have me struggling to find Ryu among a sea of similarly dressed enemies, fights where I literally just mash X while I surfed the web, preplanned parts where Ryu takes up half the screen and the game turns to a slow moving mess of Ryu slowly finding enemies to kill so he can move on and many other problems then yes, it is a fucking mess of a game. The fact that Team Ninja went for the longest time promoting the game as to having "character work" and trying to humanize Ryu, when instead it made the game worse with it's annoyingly awful begging enemy sequences that just makes you want to kill the enemies quicker to get it over with, means they had no idea what the Fuck they were doing from the beginning.

I bought this on Jan 18th for $40 and was a little bummed out about the quality of the statue. It's pretty pathetic and the stand is just an ugly piece of plastic. Haven't even played the game yet. Was wondering if gamestop does price adjustments?

EDIT Just called. They will adjust the price.

Not to defend NG3 or anything but a lot of games were $10 on black friday, good or bad. Couple notable ones were only $15 each released within a month or two.

I bought it for this price months ago at my GS. Only problem with mine was that Ryu's sword was broken off, but with some good super glueing it looks like the sword is breaking as it slices the other guys arm.
