I was considering playing this again on 360, but I played the Vita version instead. The extra content in the Sigma releases is decent, but 360 owners aren't missing out on much.

Buy Ninja Gaiden 3. The action in this game is the best from the 3. It is more fast paced and frenetic. The new slide offers Ryu more mobility, allowing the player to chain his attacks to more enemies. The camera is still bad like in NG2. They should get the camera much further in order to allow you to see your surroundings. So gameplay wise is better, but it does less stuff in the other departments, like exploration, collectables and the weapons. The game is really fun, and Hard as ever. I have always had a hard time in "hard" mode in all NG games, and this is no different; it IS HARD. The good thing is that this time around the checkpoint system is more friendly :D.

The game is Good, it is not a good as NG:B/S, or NG2/S2; but is not a bad game!!!! Ninja Gaiden fans should give it at least a try and stop hearing the damn reviews!!!

@ HelloMotto

Ninja Gaiden Sigma was a significant upgrade from Ninja Gaiden

SD to HD graphics, extra content, and a first time experience for those who didn't own an XBox, which is a lot more people than those who didn't own a 360.

Sigma 2 will not sell a mil.

Bagaren85 speaks the truth! There is no way a port over year old will sell more than the original or even equal to. It's likely to reach 500 thouasand if it sells well but it won't be near Ninja Gaiden 2 levels.

What? Ninja Gaiden Sigma already sold 500k units with Japan + US combined. and that's without Others sales.

I say NGS2 will easily sell 800k-1M lifetime sales.

@shadowblind.

thats your opinion not mine.

mine is ngs>ng2

the fact that you said ngs is ngb with hardly upgraded visuals is a total lie.

ngs looks far superior to ngb, and unlike ng2, ngs doesnt pause game and load areas whilst enemies are attacking you

imo it was a technical mess, that reviewrs didnt tell ppl about.

ive done with both games anyways

NG2>NGB>NGSigma>NGDragonsword>NG

Ninja Gaiden Sigma was not very good. it was Ninja Gaiden Black with hardly upgraded visuals. And yes, I was playing on HD.

sigma is superior to ng2.

i couldnt stand ng2 it had game breaking flaws, the controls wasnt as fluid as sigma.

sigma looks better, runs far more smoothly, its in higher res and unlike ng2. sigma doesnt freeze and load whilst enemies are attacking you.

on gaiden 2 hayabusa villiage, i kid u not. the game freezes to load sections WHILST YOU ARE STILL FIGHTING ENEMIES, I TIMED IT AT AROUND 8 SECONDS
