Great game held back by weird usage of touch controls.
5 May 2013
Summary: I love this game for the Vita. It is a challenge and although, in my opinion, not as fun as Sigma 2 Plus it is still an amazing game for the vita. The graphics are amazing and the controls are great. The camera has some issues and I hate using the bow and arrow. I give it a 3 because of the touch controls being so horrible.
Summary: This is a game full of excellent control mechanics and stunning effects, held back by an unruly camera and some dated puzzle challenges. It's beautiful and the abilities of your character make this an experience worth having. The camera really does become a noticeable drawback later in the game however. It still happens to be the best ninja gaming experience you can have at the moment. So I'd recommend it.
Summary: Two words to describe this game, so hard, actually three words, so very hard. This game is the most unforgiving, and toughest game I have ever played on any platform. While the story line itself is fairly interesting; the gameplay itself is at time extremely frustrating and unforgiving. You will find yourself pulling out your own hair trying to time the perfect jump or understand what part of a particular puzzle you are missing.
Summary: Ninja Gaiden Sigma was a baptism of fire, to say the least. It throws you into a flurry of shurikens and blades the instant you begin to play, and the difficulty level does not waver throughout the game at all. For someone like me who crunches through games like a fiend, I was hoping that Ninja Gaiden Sigma would put up a fight. This game was fun, but tough. You will definitely get the snot kicked out of you many times but that makes the victory that much more rewarding.
Summary: Its a decent game. It looks nice, but there's not much depth to it. Also, the learning curve is really steep. You don't have any idea what's going on at the beginning of the game, and its completely up to you to learn everything. Some enemies are practically invincible until you learn how to properly defeat them. Can be frustrating as there isn't enough structure.
Excerpt: I bought this game at the same time I bought my PS3. I had heard great things about this game so I didn't hesitate to but. Sadly, I felt slightly disappointed with it. The game itself looks stunning in HD, especially the fire effects. The animation is also very good, with Ryu's ultra quick moves transitioning well. It is the actual gameplay that I had a problem with. You can tell that this is a port of an older game.
