Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma

impulsegamer
4 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Ninja Gaiden has earned its place in the video game hall of fame. It’s one of those games that even if you haven’t played it, you know of it for some reason. Ninja Gaiden has become so well known due to its high difficulty level and precise use of combos, blocks and counter attacking. Another reason it is well known is for its love of gore. Amputations are commonplace, accompanied by bucketfuls of blood and ruthless finishing moves.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2

  • Conclusion: If you’re lucky enough to own both an Xbox 360 and PS3, we’d recommend the arterial splatter the original version offers over the stack of extra content featured in this PS3 update. Co-op is a bit of a cop out all told, and the other additions made to the game are largely superfluous. For those exclusively playing Ninja Gaiden II on the PS3 however, Sigma 2 is a genuine treat and nigh-on essential.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Ninja Gaiden 2 was gory, by gory I don’t mean a splash of blood here and there, but rather I’m talking of limbs that could be lopped off, leaving a bloody mess that would probably result in overtime for the cleaners. This PS3 release of Tecmo’s sequel does away with much of the gore, but that isn’t all that’s different about this second Sigma release.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2

Thunderbolt Games
16 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The resurrected Ninja Gaiden series directed by Tomonobu Itagaki earned its reputation as a man’s man’s challenge, an alternative to all the games that held the player by the hand with frequent checkpoints and regenerating health bars. Taking the template created by Devil May Cry , the formula was altered with a generous dose of speed, smart enemies, and mythic levels of difficulty that combined into one of 2004′s most-celebrated titles.

Expert Review

Game Informer
15 March 2010
  • Summary: While the first Sigma featured a drastic graphical improvement thanks to the console generation jump, Sigma 2 doesn’t have the same immediately noticeable upgrade. Because it’s not jumping generations, the changes are less about visuals and more about subtle improvements to the controls and inventory system. The method of aiming your projectile weapons is vastly improved, and the new characters and enemies add variety to the campaign.

Gory action game with ability to make breasts jiggle.

Common Sense Media
13 March 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is not a child's game. While it has an over-the-top, comic book feel with villains and heroes wielding supernatural powers, the game emphasizes destruction and violence by showing dismemberment and blood. Also, several female character are dressed in revealing, provocative costumes displaying deep cleavage and jiggling breasts. Players can wiggle the controller to make these characters' breast move.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2

Auracore MediaWorks
19 January 2010
  • Summary: Square, Square, Square, Triangle, Square
  • Pros: Entertaining yet simple combat; great for providing brief periods of gaming fun; strong presentation and a great amount of content.
  • Cons: Often a lack of damage feedback on enemies; very weak story that does nothing to draw you in; every level and every encounter is the same, mash the buttons.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 review (PS3)

HonestGamers
20 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Tough guy fulfillment has all but gone up in purple smoke. That the game’s infamous obstinacy has mellowed only serves to make matters worse. Areas crawling with menace that had you sweating your way through, barely able to come up for air, now smack of bland formula and the perfunctory: run, beat up a few guys, run, beat up a few more, earn a new skill, endure long loading times at the pause screen, start running again…

  • Conclusion: Polished, tweaked and streamlined, this is Ninja Gaiden 2 done a half-step better. The addition of new modes, characters and an online option are absolute positives, and if you haven't played last year's release, this is definitely the one to get.
