How is the Ninja Gaiden emulation?

#1lonelyhamsterPosted 4/22/2013 6:26:37 AM
I want to play NG on my 360 because I assume I would be able to back up my saves if I do that. How is the emulation though? What issues pop up when playing it on the 360?

From what I read you can't play arcade NG when you unlock it and there's a problem later in the game with the transparent barrier when you're fighting in the small arena with the bosses and in mission mode. from what I read because the transparent effect isn't emulated properly your view will be blocked while wall running on the barrier.

Other than those I haven't seen or heard of any more emulation problems while playing it in my progress on the 360.

For what ever reason G_gglypuff completely forgot Ninja Gaiden Black is an Xbox game even though I told him it is and even told him I have it. >_<

Unless I am mistaken you cannot back up NG saves- they are copy protected. Well, you might be able to back them up but playing them would not be possible (through legitimate means....you could resign the saves but those would only function with things we cannot talk about here(I know little of this anyway)).

As far as how the game(s) run(s): very well (and they look great upscaled) except for the underworld arena wall glitch (they become opaque which makes certain missions in NGB MM harder, as well as a few parts in the last bit of the story mode).

You can't copy or move saves for xbox originals. Also, the game plays fine but the framerate drops on cutscenes and you can't play the snes remixes on the nes games.

That's a good thing! The trilogy on the SNES was terrible. I remember being so excited for 16 but remakes of my favourite NES games....then I played them...ugh.

I have NGBlack and it plays fine. I also have no problems playing the unlockable arcade version of the original on it. The only problems ive faced are a VERY LONG loading screen when first booted and if you remove your harddrive at any point you will lose your save.

Thanks for the helpful responses!

I've never beaten the game yet so I have no conception of how bad this wall glitch is. Would it be too hard to explain?

I know how to resign (I think, if it means changing the profile ID). I'll just mess around with the saves later and see if I can get it to work. If not I'll stick to the original Xbox and hope I never lose the save.

The wall glitch means you lose some visibility and need to play more carefully/to a more restricted area. This won't be a big issue for the story mode since you're barely in this area, but the mission mode will be affected. It just adds some difficulty, it doesn't ruin the game at all.
