Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 – Demo Impressions

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2

I’ve never got into the Ninja Gaiden games, what little I had played of them in the past was so frustratingly hardcore it seemed like a members only club.

Apparently the makers have taken on board a lot of people’s frustrations and are aiming this PS3 redux at a much wider audience – hence this game promises to be more accessible to the masses.

The gameplay is very reminescent of God Of War as you hack n slash your way through various Ninja henchmen that sent to stop you.

The camera was a little close to the character for my liking but I was soon string together combos and chopping off various limbs with my katana 😎

I get the impression the game is a little like Devil May Cry and that you are expected to mix and match combos to get the best results but I found the combat a little repetitive after a while. This may of course be remedied in the full game as I suspect you’ll have more combos at your disposal.

Finishing with a big boss battle in God Of War style – but sadly without the stylish finish – Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 has some promise but I suspect this will be one I’ll pick up when it’s cheap as opposed to at release.
