$20 Facebook marketplace scoop! I don’t usually collect these, but couldn’t say no to the price! They aren’t even yellowed.
I think out of all of my NES games i have collected so far, i enjoy Ninja Gaiden the most. Even though it is unfairly difficult at times due to it's outdated mechanics, I find myself coming back to play it the most. I really enjoy the cut scenes and like to know what happens next. For it's time it was extremely ground breaking as it was one of the first games to have cut scenes. Nevertheless, Ninja Gaiden breaks the stereotype type that Nintendo only produces childrens game. Play just the first two levels and you will find yourself checking into an insane asylum because the difficulty made you go completely mad.

RDreviews : The Messenger
Average game time: 13 hours
Trailer: https://youtu.be/qJf9edBS0TQ + Tight gameplay
+ Amazing soundtrack
+ Great world and memorable characters - There isn't enough upgrades to spend money on.
- Not enough warp points to get around the large map, meaning backtracking could out you off.
- ending falls flat
The Messenger is a mix of old school NES/SNES Ninja Gaiden and Super Metroid. Tied up in an awesome package of entertaining writing and easy to play hard to master gameplay. Characters are sarcastic and funny. The levels are beautifully crafted with a soundtrack that has you tapping your foot every revisit to a stage. If you are tired with the ambient sounds of games nowadays and wish for some memorable tunes as you jump and defeat demons you will love this. Up there with Mega man and Castlevania.
In the second part of the game, you revisit old areas but in a way that tests your skill and problem solving. At the same time of keeping the world fresh with new ideas and story developments. The game is hard but with unlimited continues and generous check points, determination and skill win out in the end.
The biggest issue here is the upgrade system. I pretty much maxed out every ability within the first 4 hours meaning money had little point. The game chucks it at you like a big reward but for 70% of my playthrough I had nothing to spend it on which really made the progression system redundant.
Still Messenger is a brilliantly solid game. A fair challenge for those who want it. You won't complete it unless you get good but at the same time it doesn't punish you like games of its kind normally would. You won't have to start from the begining of the game if you lose. If you every enjoyed NES games and skill based playformers this is for you. Needing Hand held gamers need not apply.
