Excerpt: It's been a while, but I reviewed the original Ninja Gaiden 2 on the Xbox 360 when it first came out. You can read that review. I remember liking the game, but overall, the camera and uneven difficulty hurt the final score. To this day, I maintain the worst thing that ever happened to Ryu Hayabusa was the release of Ninja Gaiden Black on the original Xbox; the first game had fixed camera angles that served the action beautifully, but Black gave the player full control...
Excerpt: Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, is the sequel to the critically acclaimed game Ninja Gaiden Sigma. For a sequel, it's quite a good game and lives up to its predecessor's quality. While this game does have some flaws, the game is stunning in terms of both gameplay and graphics. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 comes from a long line of high-class ninja-hack-and-slash games starting back in the NES days, and doesn't disappoint.
Excerpt: Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is a title that aims to improve on last summers mediocre Ninja Gaiden 2 for the Xbox 360. While Ninja Gaiden 2 was fun at times, the ninja action title was nowhere near as enjoyable as the previous Ninja Gaiden title as it was plagued with a terrible camera, cheap ways of dying (even more so than the original), and areas that outright broke the fast, frenzied, ninja action the Ninja Gaiden series has become famous for over the last five years.
Conclusion: Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma is an excellent game. The level and sound design is excellently displayed; immersing players in the world of Ryu Hayabusa as he goes on a rampage destroying enemies and fiends along the way. The camera frustration is normal for games like this, but is not that big a drawback as it could have been. The lack of blood is very sad and missed in a game as violent as this one.
Excerpt: I'm confident that Ninja Gaiden Sigma is one of the greatest action games ever made. Sure, it's a re-release of a re-release, but it's such a well-balanced and content-heavy title that its easy to overlook whatever flaws may, may not, and possibly do not exist. Last year's Xbox 360 exclusive Ninja Gaiden II probably holds the record for videogame brutality, but it unfortunately doesn't measure up to its predecessor in any other way.
Excerpt: A Tecmo ofereceu à PS3 uma versão revista e aumentada da mais recente aventura de Ryu Hayabusa. Como tinha acontecido com o Ninja Gaiden anterior, a Tecmo agarrou na mais recente aventura de Ryu Haybusa, criada para Xbox 360, e levou-a até terrenos da PlayStation3. Não se trata de uma simples conversão, mas sim de uma aventura repleta de extras exclusivos, complementada com vários retoques a nível da jogabilidade e grafismo.
