Ninja Gaiden has always been incredibly difficult. I never could beat the final boss in the old NES version (although not for lack of perseverance). We are all Itagaki's bitch.

I could never beat it on the original box. I recall a lot of yelling, controller throwing, and loads of "fuck this"'s. I made a pathetic attempt when it came out again for the PS3, but had no interest after an hour (even though it felt easier).

Dang, I had such high hopes.

Oh, well, now it's Animal Farm III and Dog Park for me ... plus that Wii Fit game that lets you snowboard.

Like #1 said. Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2 on the NES were stupidly difficult. I remember one particular level: numerous pits + wind + sudden darkness. Even by cheating on an emulator I had a real hard time finishing the game.

Yeah, but that's multi-platform, MoR.

dude, if you go about NG games like you do the GoW games, no wonder you get your ass handed to you!. Although the game may appear to be a GoW or a DMC game, its like comparing Mario Kart to Gran Turismo. Fighting in NG is alot closer to Virtua Fighter or SoulCalibur than to a pure action button masher, approach it like that and its a dream to play.
