Ninja Gaiden 2 scores 4.2 at Cheat CC

Bottom line, Ninja Gaiden II is a very good action title that has a repetitive yet satisfying combat mechanic. It doesn't look or feel quite like the masterpiece Itagaki stated it was, but it will provide you with several hours of a bloody good time. (Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma, Xbox 360) 4.2/5

such a misleading title!! I actually laughed at myself!
GiantEnemyCrab  +   2490d ago
Agreed. They gave it a 4.2 not a 4.5 so why the discrepancy in this submission?
I LOVE my xbox  +   2490d ago
Yeah pretty misleading title LOL.
Judging from what I've heard so far though.. doesn't deserve more than a 3.8/5 I think.
chaosatom333  +   2490d ago
uhhh. NG2 has become like Haze. People just won't stop summiting the reviews.

We all know how NG2 turned out to be.

@ chaosatom333

Indeed. Looks like another solid action title.
Montrealien  +   2490d ago
yet another solid review, for a solid action title. Nothing new here, this game has been getting positive reviews across the board, and although I liked Haze, this is not the same pedigree. I just hope we get it at my store today, damn Quebec and their french laws, lol.

At first glance i thought they meant 4.2 out 10 but it is 4.2 out 5. I think they should change the title to reflect that because I almost crapped my pants. I will probably pick this one up.
ukilnme  +   2490d ago
4.2 out of 5.
The scores are a bag of mixed nuts. Just shows that this game is not for everybody and that's ok. I'm sure the haters will be all over this with the usual fud though. Just one more day.
decapitator  +   2490d ago
People who don't read will surely fall for this, a bit misleading but oh well. Still a rent for me.

didn't that site become irrelevant once everyone found out they were stealing guides from gamefaqs? and people that read the guides eventually found gfaq anyways through the guides and left cheatcc forever?
jackdoe  +   2490d ago
Poor title. Anyways Bloodysinner, why do you have to title every NGII review with the score? Why not make the reader click on the link to actually find out the score? Aside from that, pretty good read.

FAQS  +   2490d ago
Q: What's NG2?
A: is the sequel of one of best hack-slash action game from xbox?
Q: wow I was comparing the review scores of the first game and now this one, and is completly different, why?
A: because this game was rushed to match the realease of a Spectacular game that will destroy anything else: MGS4, whith the objective to battle whith it....MGS4 exclusive PS 3 and NG2 semi-"exclusive" for xbox 360...semi beacuse it will be lauched for the PS3 in the future like any other "exclusive" xbox360 and with way better performance, like Bioshock for example.
Q: So this is like a desperate way of some fans of xbox 360 to have their own exclusive?
A: Yes it is....but they shoot they feet.....
Q: hey I didn't undestand anything the guy whith the "spiderman" avatar told...Was that me?
A: Not worry, he's a dumbass....he only say sh+t....
Montrealien  +   2490d ago
Q: Montrealien, do you want NG2?
A: Yes, I have always love the ninja gaiden games since I was a child and loved the re-imagining of the franchise on the Xbox. I will be getting this great action Title.
Q: Did you enjoy the Sigma Remake on the PS3?
A: Yes, it was a nice upgrade to a game that was already ahead of it' s time on last gen consoles and was a perfect fit for the PS3, and looked sexy as hell in 1080p
Q: What do you think of the reception this game is getting?
A: I believe it is getting a great reception, when you make a game like the original one, It makes for a hard game to top. They seem to have taken the "if it ain't broke, why fix it? approach" so I was expecting the reception it is getting. It is still very very positive.
Q: What do you think of Fanboys that think they're opinions mean something?
A: I hear they have small e-peens and like to stroke it in groups, I tend to stay away from them, in the end they don' t matter, they are on the bottom of the gaming food chain.
Q: Is FAQS another fake account created be a interweb fanbot twirp?
A: Do I really need to answer that? Is is very obvious.

Q: Ukilnme, do you agree with the answers given by Montrealien?
A: Well I have yet to play NG Sigma so I can't comment on that but I agree with the rest.
Q: Was FAQS just pwned?
A: Yes, completely.

84% isn't bad

So far after beating chapter 5, the game is still a solid 8. Quite simply if it wasn't for the amazing gameplay and controls, it'd be lucky to get a 5/10.
jkoz  +   2490d ago
Do yourself a favor and think about what you just wrote. "...if it wasn't for the amazing gameplay and controls, it'd be lucky to get a 5/10." If it isn't for good core mechanics in a game, you really don't have a game, or anything fun. What you just said is the equivalent of "Powering up a computer without a hard drive won't get me very far." What would a game be without controls and.... gameplay? Might want to have a better reason for enjoying a game than having what it should have, the core mechanics.
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   2490d ago
He's right though...

The storyline is TERRIBLE!

The camera is TERRIBLE!

The graphics are nothing to write home about. (Most of you still live at home anyway.)

The AI is predictable.

The bosses lack that "wow" factor.

There is nothing next-generation about this game...

It's a Devil May Cry wannabe and you guys are just helping Itagaki tear apart the best action franchise ever created...DMC.
PoSTedUP  +   2490d ago
this games gunna be hot. but not as hot as gears 2, which is most likely to come out on pc, so ill be playing it on my ps3. if you want to play pc games on your pc go to www.streammygames.com , you can play gears1 on your ps3 bioshock, any pc game on your ps3. ill probly get a 360 when the new ones come in that dont break, thats the only reason i wouldnt buy a 360.

The article title is misleading
It should have read

"Ninja Gaiden 2 scores 4.2 / 5 at Cheat CC"

This way it would have prevented any unnecessary fanboy bickering beyond the obvious douchebags that will never play this game.
LJWooly  +   2490d ago
So far, there hasn't been any fanboy bickering, so there's not much reason to moan. The title was misleading, yes, but it's not causing any problems.
thereapersson  +   2490d ago
Come on, LJ, you know what people like to do around here.

But in actual response to your statement, I suppose you are right.
LJWooly  +   2490d ago
Yeah, I agree, I just think BloodySinner was just trying to get a rise out of the fanboys here. Either that, or trying to get his news hotter, resulting in more contributor points. I don't know, but whatever.

Gave you a bubble btw :)
kewlkat007  +   2490d ago
While I agree LJWooly - but its "THE PRINCIPAL"
there will always be Turds on N4G reading that as a 4.2/10 I gaurentee it. Not many read the articles.

With pitchforks and gasoline in hand, they are ready to flame.

Oh yeah I'm getting this game..
LJWooly  +   2489d ago
Yeah, I've always been fond of the Ninja Gaiden series. The only real reason for the mixed reviews is that it's not for everyone, which is to be expected. If you enjoyed the previous Ninja Gaiden games, I give this one a hearty recommendation, it's good fun.
DARK WITNESS  +   2490d ago
well after playing the demo, all i can say is wow....

i love it.

i think it is very much, just a follow up on the first one. if you liked that you will like this, end of.

I don't know why people are having such problems with the camera, it feels just the same as the old one ( its not perfect, but its not as bad as they have been making it out to be ) and i still think its way better then the camera in DMC4, now that was a bad camera !
DARK WITNESS  +   2489d ago


I agree people will trade in NG2, only because its too hard for them, they will be smashing their TV's with their control pads and taking them back.

you like DMC more, thats your personal choice. sure the combos in DMC4 are great.... when you can actually see them because most of the time the camera is looking at something else. And sure you can get more impressive combos cos the AI just stands around waiting to get beat.... you try that with NG, they wont stand around looking at you thats for sure. You will be dead before you know how to block.

don't worry, we will see what you really think of NG, when some form of it ports over to the ps3 ( if it ever does ).
SuperSaiyan4  +   2490d ago
Dmc4 had terrible static environments and the gameplay was boring ng2 is fast and nothing can compete
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   2490d ago
You mean...like how Itagaki ripped off the DMC formula and told everyone he re-invented the genre???

Ninja Gaiden is fast...I won't lie...but the combo system is so BLAND! I don't even LIKE combo systems apart from Devil May Cry...every move is unique!

The gameplay was boring in DMC4 for you? Seriously?

What is Ninja Gaiden 2 then?

In the next two weeks, my local Gamestop will see around 5 of these traded in.

That's what you 360 gamers do. You buy the game, beat it, and sell it back. You're sick people!!! You have no respect for innovation!
kewlkat007  +   2490d ago
BS LeonSKennedy4Life
All DMC was the first in it's GENRE to go 3-D on the PS.

DMC series has many characteristics of the Original NG but in 3-D, just as the Castlevania games that have been in 3-D, they all fall in the same category.

You can try to see what they are all doing different but we can trace plenty of Traits back to Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden on the NES.

We can say the same for UNCAHRTED taking something from PITFALL and TOMB RAIDER.

As fas as Gameplay/Tactics go all the other games are childs play. as we as God of war. Easy games but I give the better Presentation and Story..

This has nothing to do with the game...
Review Rating Legend (cheatcc.com)
1.0 - 1.9 = Avoid
2.0 - 2.4 = Poor
2.5 - 2.9 = Average
3.0 - 3.4 = Fair
3.5 - 3.9 = Good
4.0 - 4.4 = Great
4.5 - 4.9 = Must Buy
5.0 = The Best

I find the rating legend a little messed up isn't 3.0 - 3.4 in the middle of 1 - 5? So wouldn't "Average" be 3.0 - 3.4 and "Fair" should be 2.5 - 2.9? I consider average still a buy but anyways it's just interesting how ratings differ from sites.
DARK WITNESS  +   2489d ago
well not really if you want to look at it Mathematically then 2.5 is 50% which is slap bang right in the middle.

so 2.5 really would be middle boarder, anything below 2.5 is going from poor... down hill. anything upwards of 2.5 is going from average to to best.

at least i think thats right.
Time_Is_On_My_Side  +   2489d ago
True plus when I wrote that I was tired and for some reason I typed that. I think I was looking at the names only without even realizing the 2.5.
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   2490d ago
It's basically Devil May Cry without a storyline, replay value, or intricate combo system...

Yeah...totally deserves those 9's...

George Washington  +   2490d ago
dmc is cr@p compared to NG. this game is miles beyond dmc4 which was referred to as a last gen game by many reviewers
Legend  +   2489d ago
Oh I get it...
You're a Capcom whore. That would explain your thumb up Dante's butt and fanboyish username.
Darth Gamer  +   2489d ago
Love both series BUT,
I must agree that NG is far supirior to DMC. The AI in DMC is completely stupid, requireing only one move to be learned to beat most of the game. While the combat is enjoyable, there really is only a few moves for you to do aside from mix up a sword slash and a shot with your pistols. It is also very slow compared to NG. There is not another series in this genre where you need to be on your toes against every foe. Everybody in the game will kick your butt if you don't pay attention. In terms of graphics, both are on par with each other. I might have to give the nod to NG though. Seeing DMC4 on my Samsung LNT5265F and popping in NG1 back in, there is really nothing to be screaming WOW about on DMC4. And then the repitition of the enemies. Both only have a handfull of common enemies but NG has boss after boss that you never know are coming. I know this is only my opinion but I have all three of the titles in question (NG1, NG2 DMC4)
and I have to give the win to the NG series.
George Washington  +   2490d ago
hey guys WTF is up with metacritic.


it says 1up gave it a 67... but i just went to 1up.com and they gave it a B- .... B- translates to 80-84.. not 67. wtf.
Legend  +   2489d ago
Metacritic interprets a B- as a 67.

[edit] Criticism of game metascores
Many video game reviewers take issue with the way Metacritic assigns scores. When a game reviewer gives a video game a rating of "A", Metacritic assigns it a value of 100. When a reviewer gives a game a rating of "F", Metacritic assigns it a value of 0 — although some reviewers think a score of 50 is more appropriate.[1] When a reviewer gives a game a rating of "B-", Metacritic assigns it a value of 67 — and many publishers, developers, and websurfers think that the score should be closer to 80.[2]


The scale isn't the same as is used in school/university.

qwert I reported your comments in both articles as SPAM.

EDIT: just went and looked at qwert's recent comments, this is really sad. this person said both these comments 3 hrs ago as of when I'm typing this:

"I played the demo and the game sucked big time!"

"I'm in disagree whith this review, that's more like 4.25/100! I just already finish the game in 2h32m, very small indeed."

well that's a pretty neat trick how you played the demo and then in the same hour you beat the full game! oh wait... you said it took you 2:32 to beat the full game so... I GUESS YOU'RE JUST A LIAR!! you created an account just to bash a 360 game (that you have very little real knowledge of yourself), didn't you? f-ing PATHETIC!
