Rate the Game: Week 43

We keep chugging along here on Rate the Game. Last week's Ninja Gaiden was pretty divisive but let's see where it falls on the leaderboard after we calculate the average.



Well, it stumbles a bit but it gets over the hump as far as scores go but it's in lower half sharing the number 29 spot with Killer Instinct with an overall score of 3.5. Ryu is in some good company with Jago.

Sword slicing and adrenaline-fueled action aside, we need a new game to rate for this week. Drum roll please...

...TA-DA!!! So we go from one notoriously difficult platformer in Ninja Gaiden to another notoriously difficult platformer in Ghosts 'N Goblins from Capcom on the NES. Is it a classic? Is it every bit the rage-inducing bitch the legends say it is? Is it overrated? You tell us. Take the poll and share your thoughts on this title. Until next week!



No matter what may happen to me, just remember Lzzy Hale gave me the bedroom eyes.

I've been playing it on the Switch's online service. It functions fine, I suppose, but the biggest hurdle are the jumps because I'm so used to being able to keep control while in the air. I doubt I'd be having this hard of a time if the jumps worked the way they do in other platformers.

Never played. But Super Ghouls n' Ghosts on the Sega Genesis was my first taste of the series and I hated that.

To quote one of the great scholars of our time, "After all that hard work, who'd want to do that shit again? It's like building a house and right after you're finished you tear it down just to build it one more time!"

Too hard to be enjoyable. At least Ghosts & Goblins had that incredible atmosphere to make it fun to keep doing the same thing over and over, but Ninja GAY-DEN does not.

Yeah, Ghosts n' Goblins is consistent with the theme it's trying to present. Ninja Gaiden is all over the place with its enemy types.

This is actually a pretty boss rendition of the main theme. I also remember the trick of getting the song to play on Shade Man's stage in Mega Man 7.

Universe doing weird things...... the same day you made this post, I came across the new GnG game, which looks fun AF - but I'll need a demo to be sure.
