Summary: My review simply covers the Collector's Edition of Ninja Gaiden Sigma . This edition was carried by GameStop stores. When I wandered in to pick up my copy of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, the guy behind the counter suggested I get the Collector's Edition. Me: "Why shouldn't I just get the regular version?" Store employee: "There's an extra DVD with hidden codes, and you get to see how the game was made!" With that endorsement, I shelled out my extra ten bucks.
Summary: I bought this game, as I was a hard dying fan of Ninja, Nintendo. I play them all, since i got the PS3 I wanted to play the game, but because of marriage and kid, I could not. But I have played the Uncharted Drake family, God of war, Mass effect, infamous etc.. But always I felt that I had to continue with the Ninja Saga; so I bought an used game.
Summary: This game gets a lot of attention, and its swift cut and kill gameplay can be great - when it all comes together. I've been gaming for years, and I put a lot of time into trying to master this - but it became clear that I was fighting lame, out of date game design and insane difficulty spikes, as much as I was the black belt AI. Of all the games I've played, this one left me the emptiest, and angriest. There's much better out there. Leave alone.

Summary: This is the first game of the Ninja Gaiden series that I have played. I have played games which I expected to be similar, such as games from the Tenchu series or Red Ninja. I had read good things in other reviews and was quite looking forward to playing it. However, as I didn't know what to expect I went in with an open mind. I almost immediately regretted my purchase. I thought the controls were poorly planned.
Summary: I always believed gaming was supposed to be a fun activity for people to enjoy while relaxing. I'm a very calm person and even I felt like putting my foot through the screen on too many occasions to count. This game is difficult. And I do mean difficult. So difficult infact that if you've never played Ninja Gaiden before then don't even bother with it, you won't get any further than chapter 5 or 6 before realising this game does nothing but pay homage to existing fans.
Waste of money, waste of time, let down by the difficulty.

Summary: I have never played Ninja Gaiden before - and am expecting quite a few PlayStation fans are in the same boat having never played previous incarnations on the Xbox. I don't mind a challenging game as long as it is do-able, but Ninja Gaiden Sigma is rediculously impossible such that I am still stuck on the second level and I just feel like chucking the controller accross the room. I do not understand why the developers have chosen to make it so difficult.
