Isn't this just a remake of the original? Then, is it really worth it when you've got XBOX Ninja Gaiden Black out there? Don't take that the wrong way, I'm just curious as to whether or not the extra's in Sigma make it worth the money.

I don't know if it's worth it for someone who already played one of the others, but I've not and I know I'd love to try it so all the bonuses and nice graphics are just welcome to make the experience even better.

The fact that you get to see a Sony logo when you boot the game up makes it 500x more enjoyable, I'm sure. :wink:

Yes Dave, it's a remake of Ninja Gaiden/Ninja Gaiden Black XBox. However, just as Ninja Gaiden Black added new content, Sigma adds even more including an extra playable character. If I'm not mistaken, the default difficulty is lower, and there is a new highest difficulty. The fact that it looks amazing doesn't hurt either. Plus, there's actually a point in playing the demo all the way through as you get bonuses when you start the full game based on how much of the demo you've completed, which is definitely something more devs should do.

Gotcha, certainly sounds worth it, then! :D

had some time to play it friday night but was out of town the rest of the weekend for a tourny.

It's good, it is the same game but the graphix deff look better and you have some new weapons, moves and the rachel missions. they kinda show what she was up while ryu was doing his thing. so far they have all taken place in the same environments. But i am on her second mission so far so who knows.

Some new enemies also like the soldiers on bikes. You have a new throw also, you jump over and you can gab as you pass over and throw em a decent distance.

It is just a remake but the visual deffinately look better and there is new content so far with the AI being a bit different also.

Reportedly the decapitations are censored from the JP version of Sigma, so the US release will likely be the preferred version.

Ninja Gaiden Black is my SECOND favorite VG ever(If I ever get around to completing my top 15 list, you'll see it!), so NGZ should be awesome...if only I had a PS3.

OK... played more tonight.

The dual katanas are very useful and effective, not to mention fun to use. The rachel missions are fun also so far and I you get to fight one of the characters in one of her missions that you'd didn't get to fight originally.

The chapter when you make your way to the military gate and open it has helicopters dropping bombs and you fight the fat guy from the blimp again.

I've seen a few added real time cut scenes and there is a small area you have a few fights in before doku kills you in the very beginning. Plus you get to fight him. I think he is beatable, not sure and dunno what would be the results of that would be.

I've read somewhere that although PS3 games are regionfree some games boot up the version that suits your console. Means, booting up US-Resistance on a JP console gives you the JP-version of the game with no blood while booting up JP-Ninja Gaiden on an US console activates the uncensored US version of the game. Is this true?

Well, it might be worth it to play the waiting game. According to these rumors Team Ninja will show off Ninja Gaiden 2 at the E3...360, exclusive.

As the site even notes, all of the shit "rumored" to be shown at E3 sounds a little too good to be true. It's also been known that NG2 would be a 360 exclusive for a while now.

As far as I know all that's been known was that there'll be a big one and it's going to be 360 exclusive. No mention of the Ninja Gaiden name yet and the concept art that was leaked/released didn't look like NG at all.

I played Ninja Gaiden and the hurricane packs to death and bought Black as well. I'm really interested to see what all they added to it and how it looks. Easily my favorite game(s) of this past generation.

Ninja Gaiden 2 is going to be fucking fierce.

NG Sigma already looks wonderful. NG2 is going to be orgasm inducing, though I'd imagine it'll probably be running on the same engine.

Think for a second : if I said that, it probably means that the system I was looking to buy was the PS3 and not the 360. There are other games besides NG2, and I don't like 360's other games except DOA4. I don't really give a fuck whether the system is microsoft or sony.

Don't really want to pull this topic too far off topic, but it's my fault anyway. Forza 2 doesn't interest you but Motorstorm does?

Given that Itagaki (the guy that made the game) thought Sigma was a stupid idea to begin with and had virtually nothing to do with it... I can't fathom anyone is actually surprised that he's going to continue working exclusively on the 360 (and DS... but who doesn't make stuff for the DS except Sony now? Even Microsoft is putting games on the thing).

yayaya forza 2 sounds cool and so does viva piñata but I'm still more interested in the PS3. I'm not going to give you all the details of why I prefer it over the other, that's just how it is. The 360 is attractive, but just not attractive enough for me.
Also I dunno why you're so upset that I might be interested in Motostorm lolz. Who cares if you think it sucks ? a lot of people think it's good, and I want to check it out. Maybe I won't actually like it, I never know.....

forgot to note that the game does have some new music tracks in there. as far as I can tell they don't replace older tracks exactly... it's just sometime on your second time through an area (u do back track in NG) or a sub area will have it's own tunes as well.

thought it was worth noting..
