PC ports are sometimes lacklustre and Ninja Gaiden was no different, lacking some of the most basic features a PC title should have. Luckily, the latest patch brought some back.

Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection launched in a poor state on PC, to say the least, and the fact that it took a month after launch to release the basic graphics options speaks volumes on the shoddiness of this port. For example, you had to mess with game files in order to alter the resolution since there was no such option in the game itself. There were also no options to turn V-Sync on or off and the list of basic missing features goes on and on. 

Later on, PC Gamer picked up that an update finally brought these back for all three games but it was probably too late as the collection whose name had been tarnished already. That said, it appears that some of the players enjoy the collection even without these options but one has to ask themselves if these players had nostalgia goggles on - Ninja Gaiden is a beloved franchise after all.

With the graphics options added back, the bundle is one step closer to becoming something the majority of PC players would enjoy but it remains to be seen if other setbacks will be reverted, such as the censored gore. 

Yeah, the gore is censored in a game where you're a ninja that slices people up.
