Both are adventure/fighting games and lead you through huge levels where you battle endless enemies using crazy combos to defeat them.
my vote goes to ninja gaiden, mostly because i just started DMC4 and had a great time beating NGB though.
both are awesome games though
I've played both Ninja Gaidens and beat the first three Devil May Cry series up to halfway DMD mode. Ninja Gaiden has more beautiful environments, is more realistic, and appeals more to the average gamer. Devil May Cry is more bada$$, fictional, darker, with cheesier dialogue, worse enemies, and more character development. Gameplay in both games are ridiculuosly fun and quite difficult compared to the typical action/adventure game. It boils down to the character and settings and the guns.. so I'll go with DMC.
