Despite being one of its most renowned and beloved franchises, Team NINJA apparently spent little time on the PC port of its new Ninja Gaiden compilation, Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection. Early reviews of the package, which comprises Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, have revealed that it’s a pretty lazy release that not only lacks keyboard/mouse controls but standard graphics options, such as the ability to change resolution within the game. In order to change these settings, Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection players must pick the resolution they desire outside of the game (via properties > set launch options). What’s worse is that there are only three resolution options available: 1280 x 720, 1920 x 1080, and 3840 x 2160 (no 2K). Team NINJA will presumably fix these glaring oversights in Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection with a future patch.

And if you want to toggle between windowed mode and fullscreen, you can definitely do that! Here’s Koei Tecmo’s helpful advice: To do so, launch the game, and then click the maximize icon in the upper-right of the title bar. To return to Windowed mode, press the Esc key while in Fullscreen mode. […] you’re looking at one of the most useless PC ports of all time, maybe ever from a major publisher.

  1. Woooow, that was a sh1tty, lazy-@ss port. I’ve seen some of Tecmo’s past work on PC, and it wasn’t great, but this is even worse than I was expecting.
