Ninja Gaiden 2 video, screens, and demo impressions from Destructoid

The most exciting prospect of the whole game isn't the smooth, well rendered play or a new mechanic that has enemies going all kamikaze, but the new ninpo being introduced. One of Ryu's new abilities is a whirlwind style attack that mulches enemies in the immediate vicinity and rains their viscera down on your head after the attack has been completed. Enemies further from you also take damage from this attack, although to a lesser extent, losing a leg or arm as opposed to being dismantled entirely -- which for the poor bastards sent to kill you is just another day at the office.

Ninja Gaiden 2 seems to live up to the expectations everyone has for it, with retooled game play, stunning graphics, and an abundance of new attacks and weapons with which to make mincemeat of any that stand in your way.

Look at the detail. NG2 best platform game 2008.

Even though it's from a youtube clip it looks good.

I noticed something strange. Do the surroundings look awfully big compared to the characters, or is it just me? Look at Ryu when he's close to the railing of the bridge and you might see what I mean. This was usually a problem in older FPS's and some of the earlier 3D games. It looks kinda silly somehow. Miniature ninjas fighting on a giant bridge =)

Just a minor thing that caught my attention. I'm looking forward to playing it. A GDC demo would be great.

i am a ps3 fanboy , DMC4 combat system is nothing compared to NG2 and NG1 which is more challenging and fun , and you have to use your brain in NGS :)
