The game Ninja Gaiden Sigma is an electric combination of action-packed martial arts along with fantasy and imagination.

Take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa, a warrior bent on revenge for the brutal massacre of your entire clan by the vicious Vigor Empire. Armed with your skills with a sword, acrobatic martial arts, and stealthy ninja skills, you face opponents who progressively challenge your mastery. Advance through the many levels as you fight your way closer to the Holy Emperor in order to reclaim the enchanted sword called Ryuken.

As the game is brought to PlayStation 3, an upgraded and enhanced version of the Xbox title called Team Ninja, boasting more sophisticated moves, realistic action sequences and additional weapons for Ryu Hayabusa. An additional character for players to try is Racheal, a heroine of the series. What sets this apart is that once you choose to play Racheal, your experience of the action and plot sequences will be presented from her vantage point.

Review Summary

Ninja Gaiden Sigma is an incredibly challenging adventure. The story is about ninja Ryu Hayabusa who ventures out to avenge the death of his ninja comrades. In so doing Ryu becomes caught up in a race to stop the evil Lord Doku from getting his hands on the legendary Dark Dragon Blade. The gameplay requires you to learn the proper attack techniques so that you can enjoy the game. Upgrading your weapons and using the visually impressive combos is not only awesome, but facilitates the game. The overall difficulty lies in overcoming all the enemies. So you’ll have to sharpen your attack techniques then you’ll be able to gather yellow orbs upon their death. However if you don’t get the attack techniques right you’ll be spending more on potions to heal yourself from these recurring battles than the amount of yellow orbs you collected in the first place. There are 5 difficulty levels, including access to easier “Ninja Dog” level at any Chapter during game allows for playability for all skill levels of gamers. It is set in Feudal Japan, and is the tale of good versus evil that contains authentic themes, weapons and myths to create an engaging story. The graphics are good, the character models are amazing with highly detailed texture models that when animated move with grace and realism. Ninja Gaiden Sigma features an interesting storyline combined with some inspired settings.
