    The original "Ninja Warriors" is such a snooze-fest. I much prefer "The Ninja Warriors Again" on SNES, which I've beaten on Hard without losing once.

    Looks like it was beaten on an emulator and not on actual hardware.

    Did you not see "PLAY" on the corner of the screen? It was all recorded from a VHS tape.

    Ha!
    I was the last one to post on your video!

    Don't have much to say about the game, but I fell in love with the music.

    One thing I like about TNJ and its SNES sequel/remake is how deep the gameplay can be despite the action taking place in one left/right plane. Learning how to "crowd control" (as you should in any beat-em-up) and how to effectively use the block is hard but rewarding. "Ninja Warriors Again" plays much more like a beat-em-up and has a desperation "bomb" move ala Contra. As a matter of fact it plays very similar to the SNES Power Rangers games and may be sharing the same game engine. They also share similar music composers, though NJA was developed by Natsume for Taito, dunno about the PR games.

    It appears this excellent Sega-CD port of TNJ was ready for American release with everything being in English; EGM even reviewed the game for some reason. Taito instead released the SNES NJA as "The Ninja Warriors" in the U.S.

    I have a copy of the game and it doesn't play with motion blur, but I guess that explains part of the reason why it looks different. There's no "PLAY", just the minor tracking lines from the bottom of the screen(this is from viewing the first stage).

    Look again at 00:09 for the "PLAY".

    Also the "blur" is there because I captured the video signal from my VCR to my Dazzle with Windows Movie Maker.

    I'm struggling to find a way to record old commercials from my VHS with my TV Tuner/Capture Card, whose Composite input isn't working. So I might have to buy one of those S-Video-to-Composite adapters.

    I agree. I managed to pick it up real cheap via ebay a few years back...and other than the always-amusing Prologue and the Zuntata soundtrack, it's worthless. I will say, though, that it has some nice animation...

    If you do this, it'll leave dithering across the screen...but then you can use some sort of "blur" filter to, pretty much, drop it back to the original quality. I am currently converting all of my remaining VHS tapes(mostly Ren and Stimpy) to DVD.
