Master ninja is a joke

Master ninja is a pissing joke

day 1 is giving me so many problems the part with the trucks and the boss.... Its going well I have charge up and its just gone. its not a new wave of things to kill well they mostly kill me

Can get up the the last Wave (black mages) just end up having so little health left just kill me

Scythe doesnt seem to charge up nimpo quickly as it just SoB them

Any ideas anyone?

I finally beat day 1 the other day. Avoid the scythe, way too slow. I used the sword, and like others have said, izuna spam and when you have an opening do SOB. If not just loop the izuna with the OL 360Y attack that will lift those little orange knife dickbags without having to damage them first which will give you the izuna drop opportunity. If nobody was around when I did the OL360Y I would shuriken cancel and do another OL360Y if enemies were close, if not slide out and start the process over. I had a hard time getting this to work at first, especially with the slow down, but when I did I was able to tear through that part and even had a ninpo still saved for those asshole alchemists. Like others have said, you get past that part and it actually is much easier.

From what I know of the scythe. It's really easy to loop SoB chains on the apes and snake things. Thus making the game much more easier.

Lucky for you eh. MN with only the DS was a much bigger pain.

Yes it kills them wonderfully quickly, but it doesnt full up the nimpo fast the the sword or claws

The Scythe is a savior once you get a Steel on Bone chain going because the scythe's range is SO MASSIVE that you can clear an entire room with just SoB techniques. People only hate the scythe because it slows the framerate down a little and people who haven't used the scythe before hate how it's slower than the sword/claws.

My strategy for the alchemist is just basically jump towards a wall and press , rinse and repeat.

I just want to say that it's absolutely appalling and disgusting that a game that centers around difficulty fails so miserably on the higher difficulties, framerate wise. It already annoyed me a great deal in NG2's staircase battle and it amazed me how such a thing could go unnoticed in alpha testing stages of a game, but that was one sequence with A LOT of ninjas. To encounter it in the second fight sequence in the game though? What....the....fuck?!

The game in itself isn't even that hard, but it just becomes a randomness fest when you get 1 second+ input lags. Absolutely ridiculous.

Eh, even when the frame rate slows down I don't really have a problem inputting moves. My biggest issue with the difficulty is how the beret mercenary people can basically get your @#% where ever and whenever they want. Doing an Izuna Drop? Nope, we have a jump attack that stops it! Doing a Flying Swallow? NOPE, we grabbed you out of the air!

Though truth be told I would rather fight a dozen of the mercs than a dozen of the armored guys with the orange daggers. God those guys are annoying with their 1% chance of being vulnerable to your Izuna/Swallow and all the rest of the time just blocking everything.

I just beat the game on MN yesterday and I never once had a framerate or lag problem. Weird. And I was wondering about SoB chaining with the Scythe. Is it possible to chain multiple stronger enemies together such as gorillas and the orange-knifed guys? My chains always stop with those enemy types.

I've never had problems chaining those orange-knifed guys with the Scythe, I don't think you can chain gorillas though.

The chains depend whether or not you have to press Y, in my experience Y SoBs don't chain together, so it depends if you started a chain with the ski mask soldiers or not.

Well yeah, so do I. But that doesn't work if you're prompted to hit Y, and once you are the chain is broken.
