Ninja Gaiden Black
This reworked version of the original Ninja Gaiden game, brings the difficulty back when it comes to its combat system. In this game the player fights the enemies on equal terms, making Ryu, the protagonist, as easy to kill as the enemies he fights and consequentially making the enemies strike as hard as the protagonist.
The only difference here is the player’s choice of weapon and foresight when it comes to memorizing enemy attack patterns. The only way you can beat this game is if you master its combat system and learn the patterns of the enemy, which may take a while.
