Tecmo reveals another batch of new Ninja Gaiden 2 screenshots. Enjoy.
What's with the constant bullshots, Team Ninja? If you're going to release new screens make sure they're taken from actual gameplay. Don't mislead people. Jeez. Compare these to the gameplay footage they've shown and you'll understand why I'm complaining. - Your friendly neighborhood Bill
If you watch shoddy youtube movies of GT5:Prologue it doesn't look good either. These screenshots, unlike youtube movies, are in hi-def. They pretty much look like what the game will look like on a HD TV.
the game gets more realistic the higher the resolution gets. just an fyi. NG2 isn't even on the level of Sigma, so I don't see why people think these are bullshots. It looks like a Unreal Engine game imo. It should be fun though, but no graphical marvel.
This game is really pushing the 360 to the limit.
Over 3 enemies on screen at once!
Well you PS3 fans tried, you failed but at least you tried. Not hiding that jealousy well though, well considering you guys always comment on NG news. Must mean you played Sigma, loved it and are angry becasue you don't (boo hoo) get it no more. Well you can always watch us play it, along with 98% of all those ports that look and play better on ours.
It's sad that this site has turned in to PS3 land.
Man the e60 lineup is really being undervaluded. There are nothing but hits headed our way in 2008
NG, Halo wars, SC, GOW2, Fable, BK,
Thos e6 games right there are going to ruin my 2008.
I have to go back out and buy a 360 again( sold my last 1)
Does Dead Rising ring a bell. You know, the xbox 360 game that rendered hundreds of zombies at the same time doing their own individual things. The game even rendered killable zombies outside of loadtimes. Or maybe even a launch title like Kameo that had hundereds of creatures on the screen at once. Or let's go to the Gears of War tech demo at GDC '08 with hundreds of locusts running across the map at once. Or what about Halo 3, the game everyone critisized for it's lack of graphical prowess, had 3 epic battles against the huge Scarab with dozens of your friendly AI also trying to take it down.
So I'm not sure where this so called "3 enemy limit" is but I'm sure you haven't really taken much of a look at the 360 games anyway.
what the hell is that weapon he is using?Damn this game is going to be a blood bath with none stop action from start to finish.Can't wait,just 2 more months to go.
Day 1 purchase for me.
it looks like sigma, but bloodier and better weapons
Sigma looks like Ninga Gaiden Black, oh thats right... because it is.
Should have stayed in bed with that one, now go on and play that highest rated PS3 game that happens to be a three year old Xbox port, and don't forget it's your "last" :)
pwnmaster3000 should change his name to "got pwned by Jason 360 3000 times"
Whats that I hear? could that be crying? yup and you stink like jealousy to.
lmao. owned. and my only problem with the art is Ryu's shader. His legs are too smooth and plasticy. He needs a bump layer baked into his normal map, or some ACTUAL new, global details put into his normal map. It just looks too smooth. It sucks. Other than that, tho, this looks friggin good. (and before you idiot n00b sony fanboys jump all over me and PM me and make me own the sh1t out of you with some of my portfolio renders... yes I'm a f*ckin shader artist, so stfu.) I hope you're still enjoying your xbox 1 port! LMAO. What is it, Jason? The highest-rated, best-looking game on PS3? LMAO. classic ownage.
finally a real sequel, can't wait
this game look like sigma but just better wepons and mutch more blood. tell me one thing that will me new except the wepons ? one thing ? ps. i liked sigma and i play it when im not playing cod4. so if the graphics are the same as ps3 dosent means that the game will be bad. i think it will be good but not anything special.
Sigma Looks like Ninja Gaiden Xbox, because it's a three year old Xbox port. Which means a three year old Xbox game is the highest scoring, best looking, and overall best game on the PS3... And it's your last :)
Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... Please dont get censored... etc...
Seriously... Ninja Gaiden (Xbox) was censored in Europe, and Sigma is censored in Europe... :( ( = no buy)
Only NG Black was released uncensored here (which I ofcourse bought)
So that's what's most important to me: Please dont censor this game cause I will not buy a censored game.
Yi- I was just about to bring that up. I am worried about the gore, especially this late in screens. If the game is coming in June and they censor it, it would take months to go through and change all this stuff. I really hope it's not delayed for that reason, because it's obviously a mature game, and obviously VERY fake.
this Gen, I can tell. Not many have come close to the level of difficulty, at least it being a challenge. Some regions probably won't get this game, too bad.
man that is one big dude hes fightn...gonnna be sweeeet
looks frickin sharp!
almost all thos pics are ingame only the big fellas not. This game will be amazin. but ur right it better not get censored. big up the box!! any1 no if it will have online slashing?
I am not bashing the game's graphics. Its a must buy for me on day one just because of its insane combat system. But yeah the gameplay videos shown don't really look anywhere near those screen shot quality and yes I have seen HD footage of this game. It looks good but not as good as those screen shots or the ones released before. http://www.gametrailers.com...
But clearly you're more of a gow fan
was absolutely awful.
So?? Even if I am a God of War fan? What am I not allowed to play or like any other game???
you make me sick and should be exterminated. Those are REAL gameplay screens unlike your killzone 2 with all the CGI "bullshots" just wait till it comes out I won't have to tell you, you'll see it for yourselves, n00bs.
first you need to shut up cause well even i think it LOOKS like sigma with more blood but NG has never been about graphics its about the gameplay and the difficulty and have you been living under a rock cause GG has already shut everyone who criticized the e3 05 cgi trailer with the last e3 trailer which was in-game cause people played it
I really really really hope they take out that dash feature that seem to have replaced his roll. In the demos when the player dashes wit him, he always gets hit....come on team ninja, this, crackdown, halo3 and Champions MMO are the ONLY reasons i didnt sell my 360 yet, make this game as perfect as possible
(the health bar,)?
In case you're wondering where the HUD went... =/
and more everything else? it looks like sigma. too plastic.
This shot are not bullshots remember the game was gonna have a replay feature like Halo 3, this shots are probably from that, that's why you dont see a HUD.
Love the typical Sony comments about how average Gaiden 2 is going to be - guess i got it wrong about you guys being dumb lol
Do Sony boys understand sarcasm?
This game is gonna be awesome.
Yessss! They brought back the Vigorian Flails! Awemuthafukinsome! Also, Sony fanboys please. We know you are envious. It's ok. When you all you have is a broken button masher to look forward to, who wouldn't be envious of the masterpiece that is NG2?
Easily going to be the best action game to date. I hope they keep the same level of diffuculty as the first one. I love a challenge! Bring on the Ninja Tournaments!!!!!!
If this was on the PS3, would you bash it?
cause you have MGS4 6 days later.
50gb game vs a dvd 9 game.
Yes, two totally different genres.
But does bigger mean better?Nope.
Look at Heavenly Sword as proof.Superb everything.
Also NG might not be a buttom masher,but the 'Flying Swallow' technique sure does work for everything.
One of the hardest games i've ever played (at the moment)is
Metal Gear Solid Snake (MSX ver.)If you like difficult games try that.
No block button included (ala' HS and DMC)
another sony fanboy sheep!!!!!!!!!!! and you should be worried sheep boy, because if game size has increased by the multiples that your flock members proclaim, then by the time that the next-gen of consoles is upon us, blu-ray will already be outdted and useless. if the average game last gen was 5gig, and now according to flock members is say around 35gig. a 7x increase. then if they increase again at that rate nex-gen...we'll be needing 4 or 5 dual blurays for one game. unless it's hideo kojima making it. then we'll be needing 7 or 8 discs!
god you sony fanboy sheep really grate my nerves! you know nothing, and quote what sony has said and think it's gospel idiots!!!!!!!!!!!
don't tell me, you read official playstation magazine, and think that when they say that sonys multi-platform is superior it's automatically true because they're official! so why would they lie????
Looks awsome, the new weapns Ive seen so far look bad a$$. I can guarentee that this game will blow sigma away grafix wise for one reason alone, the environments. The sigma environments were designed on the original xbox and one video I saw of NG2 showed a HUGe open area, something that the first ng didnt have. This game is going to be awsome, its only 2 months away,yay!!
The gameplay on Ninja Gaiden games are always awesome and challeging. So I firmly believe this game will be fun from start to finish.
However... I was expecting more on the graphics department.
With a game like this i don't think it needs to be the prettiest game out there. The graphics look good enough, and i'm sure the gameplay will be there. I hope it doesn't feel akward on the 360 pad.
This game will deliver, but i agree with those of you saying this game will be a b1tch to beat.
Yea, playing sigma felt perfect on the ps3 controller. The 360 pad is the best for fps (after mouse and keyboard), but kind of sucks for everything else. Either way i'll be picking ng2 up first day. Its a must have for me.
I had a DS1 for my ps1 and it has always not been my favorite controler. DS was better that the huge original xbox controler but not the S or the 360 pad. Thats just how opinions are, but take it from me the 360 pad is perfect for NG. Ive played NG countless times on both xbox and 360 and any pad that you can beat the game on very hard with is a good controler for you.
Coool really cool but not awsome .
i hope it include a rachel or any other girl playble part aka NGS
Will be awesome. Definitely buying on day 1.
buy a new falcon 360 just so you can play this game =)
I was on the fence about this game, but man o' man. These screenies are convincing me otherwise. I had a love hate with the first one, hopefully this one treats me as bad!
I'm not even going to rent it. I did sigma on me PS3 and I didn't like it much at all. Watch this game is only for a few people and it's a rental at best in the first place, mark my words. The cutscenes are HORRIBLE and its going to have sega genesis sounding arcade music hahahahhahahahahahha Try harder BOTS... the 360 just has no really cool games coming out.
Im sorry, but calling this game bad is just plain stupid. Your not going to rent it because you dont have a 360. You may say you do to try and gain some credibility but anyone will know that your are just pulling fanboy crap outa your a$$ when you try to say this game isnt good. Even if you do have a 360 and hate this type of game, you have to be blind,deaf and dumb to think that it isnt a good game that people should be looking foward to.
Looks like ... an Unreal Engine game. Nothing special.
The borestation 3 fanboys have their usual trolling comments again, say what you like my friends, i would rather be having fun chopping man and monster than be watching a car going round in circles for 80 laps saying "wow doesnt that look pretty"
At least we have GOW3
That this website is not over run with sony fanboys then you need not look futher than this thread. Most of the comments in this thread are just fanboys mouthing off, finding it to hard to give props to a game just because its not on there system. This website is suppose to be for gamers that means people who love games no matter what system they are on not a web site for fanboys to [email protected]
NG2 is the poster game for Sony fanboy hypocrisy. Most of these commenters LOVE Ninja Gaiden but because they're hardcore one console Sony fans they down play this game. "Been there done that. What they going to do add some new weapons and a couple enemies. Boring. Graphics suck. Bullshots"
Its a new engine and looks awesome. Its obviously the best looking NG game ever. Whats the point downplaying it? What is every other sequel? Whats the point is making Resistance 2 or Gears 2 then? Just new weapons and enemies... Been there done that.
Zealot one console owners on both sides are sad.
I know it is, it's sad really. Ohwell, they'll be missing out on what looks to be a fantastic game.
love NG, just about my second best IP on the old xbox.
its funny too see all the slur comments from the ps3 fans.
Now if, IF, they made another NG2 for the ps3 like they did with sigma, like 4 years later, i wonder what they would all be saying then ?.....
although, i must be honest as well, i don't think any of the vids look as good as those screen shots. i am also a bit worried about things being cut for the EU. also, i thought like most of the time the bodies just stay on screen, but most of the new vids i have seen they still evaporate. sometimes its like just one arm or leg or something left.
if you ask me, the bodies should not go anywhere at all ( monsters or ninjas ) i want a huge bloody trail of bodies in my wake. Yes, Ryu was here !
