Should be called the Sigma Collection, this is far from a "master" collection. Sigma 1 and especially 2 are such a joke when compared to Black and Ninja Gaiden 2. If you have an xbox dont even bother with this collection, you will be disappointed

I am interested in this, I already have NG3RE but I am afraid the difficulty in the first two games will be too high so I won't like it. But why are the Sigma editions worse? I have no idea, can you enlighten me?

The Sigma editions are easier and more manageable, whereas Sigma 2 replaced blood with blue lightning so it's kinda' like fighting robots instead of humans, lol. That's about it really though, not sure why people whine so much, gameplay is exactly the same.

NGS2 also reduced the enemies by... a lot. Some enemies were outright removed.

  • Encounters feeling lackluster due to less enemies on screen.

  • Certain areas feeling barren when only two enemies run at you vs the 6-8 in NG2.

  • Fights feel off due to enemies having more HP to compensate for smaller numbers.

  • Said HP increase makes tougher enemies more of a slog to fight now.

  • Certain balance changes are frowned upon (Some fans dislike how some bosses can be izuna'd for instance).

  • The upgrade system is largely frowned upon, as it makes essence pretty much useless. I mean essence pretty much always becomes item/UT fodder anyway, but the way

  • NGS2 handles upgrades just expediates that. The game is much easier, with some bosses (giant statue on stage 1 for instance) feeling like complete wastes of time.

I honestly feel the difficulty of NG1 and 2 are exaggerated. Just block a lot and wait for openings. Also, jumping and coming down with strong slashes is very effective.

Alright, thank you, and thanks to Bristow and Ashadelo. I think I'll go for it.
