Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is an awesome and fun to play game for the PS3. The gameplay is a little more streamlined and simple than the Xbox 360 version with less blood and gore, but makes up for it with the playable female characters, more levels, cut scenes, and more. The #1 gaming hero of 2009 is Ryu Hayabusa. Remember it. Solid Snake, eat your heart out.
Ninja Gaiden II was great, but it wasn't on the level of Ninja Gaiden--and in the same way, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 doesn't quite reach the heights of Ninja Gaiden Sigma. But thanks to its heady new co-op missions, it comes awfully close. Forget any worries you had about diminished blood and embrace the fury that the game's comely trio brings to the table. Taking control of one of them while slashing up fiends with a friend is a total riot, as is guiding them through their single-player levels. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 may not have addressed every shortcoming of its Xbox 360 predecessor, but it does a great job of making up for them with raw, unparalleled swordplay.
The fun of slicing hordes of difficult enemies and finding the nuances of a deep combat system manage to escape the clutches of Ninja Gaiden II’s unfair difficulty curve. Still, if you already have a copy of Ninja Gaiden II the additions in this version aren’t justification enough to buy it again for a higher price. Anyone who was either turned off by the difficulty in the original or passed over it the first time around should check out Sigma 2. While bloodless and far from a definitive version, it’s a still a fun and challenging game that any action fan worth their salt should play.
