Rank the levels

Post by Volf » Thu Sep 29, 2016 8:12 am

Hi everyone. I'm a long time ninja gaiden 2 player, and I'm ecstatic to have found this place. almost cant believe reim is here! been using the master master ninja guide for years, so thank you very much for that. Now every time i play the game i think about the varying quality of the levels both in terms of presentation and layout. level 9 for example is very week both visually and in layout, then the very next level (10) might be visually the best. so anyway my question is how would you guys rank the levels? I'll start and will be ranking them mostly based on level of polish. I understand the game needed a little more development time, and that is why some of the levels are a little unfinished. but i still believe they all have their own great unique sections. The cog climb in chapter 8 immediately comes to mind.

Chapter 1: Sky City Tokyo
Chapter 10: The Temple of Sacrifice
Chapter 3: Thunderclap of Catastrophe
Chapter 5: The Aqua Capital
Chapter 2: Castle of the Dragon
Chapter 7: The Flying Fortress Daedalus
Chapter 11: A Tempered Gravestone
Chapter 12: Quickening Devastation
Chapter 13: The Underworld Abyss
Chapter 14: Poisoned Blood
Chapter 6: The Lycanthrope's Castle
Chapter 4: A Captive Goddess
Chapter 8: Submit, or Die!
Chapter 9: Heart of Darkness

Yup, agreed on both. I've played Ch.01 a lot, it's a fantastic chapter start to finish.

Probably because they felt quite relaxing after the first two chapters :)
I liked the rainy atmosphere and more opened areas in them and the music was my favorite.

I just didn't like the Van Gelfs. All they encouraged were UT spamming.

I actually agree with that, I'd like them even more if they didn't throw VanGelfs at you like candy (that gauntlet before the boss in chapter 3 on MN :shrug: ) and GigaDeath never existed.
