Ninja Gaiden & Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos

I don’t know about you but I think Ninja’s today are as cool today as they were 20+ years ago which helps wall-spring jump the Ninja Gaiden games for the NES to some of my favorite on the entire system! I recently beat the original for the first time (after 23 years) but I was feeling To Legit To Quit right there and followed the up by completing the sequel! Once the first was mastered, the second just played on like a Windmill Shuriken slicing through the air uninterrupted by the thrower. Yes, the games are difficult but like a like a Black Belt Ninja you are not going to become a master without lots of practice, self control, and quick reflexes. I love the music to these games however; my only complaint, despite being incredibly catchy songs, is thaty they are too short and therefore repeat often. But as the gameplay is Fast Times at Ridgemont type nonstop action it was less of a bother. I recommend the first two Ninja Gaiden NES games to anyone who likes an addictive NES classic served up with a bit of frustration sliced by the Dragon Sword.

Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom now is the only one left calling my name. However, I am going to take a break from my Ninja studies and go for my PhD in Ninjitsu sometime when I am ready to go Back to the Future of the NES Ninja Gaiden timeline.

Finished Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages late last night/early this morning. What an epic game - I hope it and Seasons comes to the eShop at some point!!

(Now, to actually get a copy of Seasons would be nice....)

Hey @Emaan1, did you ever download any of those Overworld Maps I suggested from GameFAQs? Also, you shouldn't be jealous my friend. If you had experienced Super Metroid before the original, you wouldn't be able to appreciate the game's design as much as you could. I would also suggest you download and play through Metroid II: Return of Samus, before Super Metroid as well. Believe me, you'll thank me in the end. Well, you might not thank me, but you may think about it. :D

Post here the recent retro game(s) you have played on the original console they were designed for (no save states and "suspend" feature here - just good ol' fashioned battery back-up or passwords) and beat! Feel free to write your impressions about your awesome (or not so awesome) experience about it too! :)

Demon’s Crest!
Released: 1994 by Capcom for the SNES!

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled

I consider Demon's Crest to be one of the best hidden gems on the SNES. You are anti-hero Firebrand, a red gargoyle who starts out with a shard from the Crest of Fire (which has been broken into many pieces) thus giving you the ability to shoot fire out your mouth and can be upgraded as you progress and find the other shards out and about. The abilities that you gain throughout the game are very cool and add great new gameplay mechanics which do take some time to get used to and perfect. Originally you can only fly, well, more appropriately hover and move left and right from a jump. Other abilites from crests include the Air Crest which when equipped will allow you to fly around infinitely and upwards. The Crest of Water, not hard to guess what this ones does - allows you to swim underwater. The Crest of Earth provides a smashing good time as you use your massive shoulders to plow through seemingly unmovable objects.

This game looks fantastic. Well into the SNES lifecycle, this game is a shining example of what the SNES can display. Levels that consist of things like flying through a burning forest, swimming through a submerged acropolis, and sliding across ice in the mountains all look great. The animations are not smooth like butter however, which is noticeable really only during the big boss brawls but I excused this in my mind as these were just ancient creatures and therefore cannot move around all agile like a galloping gazelle. ;)

Demon’s Crest music is fantastic and unique. Yuki Iwai composed an amazing pipe organ almost church-like soundtrack; fits the atmosphere and the mood perfectly. Memory of the Fallen Ones is a standout song to an outstanding score that you get to enjoy as you watch the ending. I also enjoyed Metropolis of Ruin which plays during your frequent visits to town and practice your headbutts (trust me, you will have to “practice” your headbutt timing too if you want 100% completion), collecting gold, and shopping at the magic and item shop.

Make sure to find everything 100% (vials, talismans, vellum, secret paths) in this game because it has multiple endings because not only do you need it to face the final form of Phalanx and get the “good ending,” but the game has a surprise for you if you are gargoyle enough to accept the challenge. Regarded by some as one of the most difficult bosses in all of video games, the Dark Demon will be there just waiting to test your ultimate power and skill.

It is a dang shame that not many people got to experience this great game. Demon’s Crest is supposedly known to be the only game that had negative sales for a week because more people are said to have returned it for being too hard than actually bought it! That maybe helps explain why we have unfortunately not seen a 4th game. I recommend this to anyone who likes a good challenge and searching out items in a non linear fashion. A great game overall and definitely worthy of the relatively high price to add to your video game collection. B-)

God! (Even though, he's not relative to this subject in any way shape or form.) I wish this retro romp was available for download on the VC! I love the color palette and the art direction to death. With emphasis on death. lol

By the way, anybody who returned this devilish delight because of it's level of difficulty was a fool.

Sorry for the late post but you should play through Zero Mission first. There's really no reason to play the original unless you really want to and are very, very patient.

@Chrono_Cross, don't tell him that! Playing through the original and the rest of the series in order will give him a greater respect, for what each entry has to offer. I can't believe someone as educated as you would recommend anything of the sort. You know as well as I do, he would never be able to look at the original entry the same way again. I thought this thread was about retro respectfulness. lol

But going from Zero Mission to 'Super Metroid' would have zero 8-16 bit transition 'WOWZA' effect, they're both in the same league by the looks of it graphically, which would then make going into super metroid all the less impressive or suprising. I mean, i was so used to Wario Land 1-3's 8-bit graphics, that going into WL4 afterwards blew me away, i want the same effect for metroid regardless if the original has no map.

I'm playing the original, then getting Zeebed up for Super. B-)

Thank you @WaveBoy! You're absolutely correct my friend, besides the facts. I think Chrono is having an off-day. lol

By the way, you're not going to download one of my greatest childhood gaming memories? What about Return of Samus WaveBoy?

I want to play the original, plus $5 for the Virtual Console version is better for me than hunting down a copy of Zero Mission for my GBA :p
@G4L, I'll be downloading those maps the moment I start playing, just haven't gotten to it yet.

Nice to finally meet someone who has played let alone even heard of Demon's Crest!

Emaan1 & Waveboy: If you can hang, than I definitely recommend playing NES Metroid before Zero Mission. The no-map thing gets way over blown like it was from a power bomb. A lot of 8 year olds could remember 8-bit Zebes back in 1988. You don't want kids with mullets, tapered-leg stonewashed jeans, and neon pink shirts showing you up now do you?

I'm not going to bother with Zero Mission, its easier to just play the original for a better price. I really wanted to play the original regardless, for the retro factor. Plus like what @WaveBoy said, I think going from the original Metroid to Super Metroid will be a lot more meaningful than if I played Zero Mission first. By the way, its not my first Metroid game, I have all 3 Prime games :)

The original it is! I'm not worried about the entire 'no map' thing, i'm just excited to to hit up the original M in all of it's 8-bit retro glory. I plan to do so before E3. And Ryno, i swear we've posted that same gnarly NesKid Picture over dozens of times haha, but it never goes out of style! How can it, since he's possibly the most radical NES kid there ever was. Man, if people still dressed like this and rocked that 80's big hair, mullets, perms, the colorful clothing and yadah yadah life would b e 100x more wonderful, i seriously miss those days! I've got my own little personal 80's wardrobe which i tend to wear here and there when i'm at home. The white 80's pumps, tight Bright blue jeans, Blue jean Jacket, Black/Pink shades, Dangly' earing, the works. :D I practically rock this shniz everytime I game! haha.


The coolest dude to represent the GB back in 89' B-)

anyways! I'm saving Demon's Crest for next Halloween. But I'll most likely jump into Gargoyles Quest II in a couple of months, loved the hell out of the GB original on the 3DS's VC. B-)

@G4L

Oh i definitly plan on diving into Metroid II, but i was thinking about saving that one right after Super.....Hmmm, Or maybe i should just play it after the original,obviously spaced apart of course, wouldn't want to get Metroid'd out and catch a swirly case of the Roids and Zeebies.

You guys are right. What was I thinking?

Emaan, you have to play the original first. Super Metroid will be well worth the wait. Just trust me. ;)

Ya, the kids of today will never understand how amazing the transition between 8 to 16 bit was during the golden age of gaming. being so used to the NES, and then finally going hands on with Super Mario World for the first time was just out of this world amazing. :D You really had to of been there to even get a realistic idea of how crazy it all was. The Nes was released in 85 in the NA, but i got it sometime in late 88' or early 89' sad to say, but i was only 5 during the time, i was born a little too late to get it when it was hot on the scene! :p But ya...The kids of today however take it all for granted, often spitting on the classics having zero flipping indication of how insanely awesome they were during the time and the impact they made.

My modern gaming days outside of Nintendo have officially whaned, they're history basically. I've got zero interest in playing the Vita, nor any of these big hits hitting the PS3 and XBOX 360...Resident evil 6 is the only exception! :p I tend to get more enjoyment out of NES and SNES games, rather than these extremely long big 3D traditionally controlled polygon driven power houses. Like what's the deal with God of war III? That flashy piece of crap nearly put me to sleep....The lame random button pressing during the 'watch only' finishing attacks were so unintuitive and boring to pull off for ex ect ect. Uncharted also does absolutely nothing for me and neither did Dead Space. Pointer controls for Dead Space would of made me a beiliever though! :p

If BioShock Infinite Supports Pointer controls and is released for the Wii U I'd definitly be down though. B-)
Same deal with RE6, i wont be getting it for the PS3.
