Comparison video for some aspects of the ninja gaiden games, gameplay, boss fights and chicks.
both parts have there own good thing :)
the second one looks washed out + it has bad colors and kind of blurry and the funny part is the second one is running the 360 and first one PS3
They showed really lame combat for Ninja Gaiden Sigma. I mean when he showed NG2, he was doing the charged up moves (holding down Triangle or Y) and finishing moves. Now NGS doesn't have finishing moves but it has charged up move which actually looks similiar to the NG2 move. It's argueable which is cooler but thats not my point. My point is that this was an unfair comparison. The charged move that I'm talking about is at 00:47 in the clip. Also at 1:00 he did Ninpo. Which is EXACTLY the same as one of the Ninpo that can be used in NGS.
Well, as a game, I would certainly hope that NG2 is most definitely a step up from NG1 in any form it came in, but as a comparison, I'd have to say that this video fails miserably. And I am not saying that as any kind of defense of the PS3 either. Even if it would have been the XBOX version of both games, I still would have felt the same way. I'm assuming that the point of this video was to show off which game was better. So if that's the case, an ACTUAL comparison would show off BEST OF BOTH GAMES. For the game play, I'm sure that anyone who has played the game would agree that that was not the most visually impressive game play or environmental area of NG1, AND I can say with certainty that there are more impressive areas to show off the muscle of 2 as well. BUT, unlike 2 (which I have not played yet), I can tell you that he did choose to show one of the most visually UNIMPRESSIVE game play areas of 1 for his comparison. Same with the bosses. Why would you compare the fight with Murai (I think that was his name. I can't remember), who was only a man, to the spider boss if NG2? Again, I doubt that the spider was the best boss in 2, but I can GUARANTEE that there are many more interesting boss battles in 1. Again, although he may have been the most difficult for some, the first Murai fight was probably the most visually UNINTERESTING boss battle in the entire game. And finally, comparing the women was fun and all, but why would compare game play footage, where the character is nothing more than an ant on the screen, to a cut scene where the character's chest is a full 1/3 of everything that we see? What, did you think that we wouldn't want to see Rachael's chest once more??? In any case, either choose to show two samples of game play footage OR two samples of cutscene footage (and for obvious reasons, in this case it should have been the cutscenes). Honestly, in this generation where it seems everybody has just gone comparison crazy, if GameTrailers and all these other people had the energy to waste making all these comparisons, I just wish that SOMEBODY could take the time to make some FAIR comparisons so that the people watch can ACTUALLY decide for themselves what they think.
NG2 has some really boring level design. They are just open areas with nothing in them... That really kills it for me.
because the spider is the first boss in NG 2(like murie in ng1) and you fight it in ch1 and mid chapter 2. Later the bug becomes just a normal enemy. the bug is as lowly as the bosses get in NG2, that should answer any questions about which game is more extreme.
They both look the same to me, but NG2 looks flashier...they added more effects like the ghost trails and noticeable sword trails, more sparks coming from metal to metal clashing, the hit counter...but graphics wise I don't see a much of a difference to debate about
Not from the stupid video. Sigma has better graphics. II has better/ more advance fighting system. Sigma has better levels design. II has better music and cutscenes. II has better weapons. Both have crappy story. Both are awesome.
What you said was not a hard conclusion to come to, but you missed my point COMPLETELY Poopface. In a comparison to show which is the BETTER game, you show the BEST of BOTH games. If it was a comparison of which game was worse, then you show the most boring parts of both games.
Doesn't sigma run at 60fps 1080p? Correct me if i am wrong. Edit: After watching the video comparison i think that sigma looks better, and ng2 plays better. but at the same time they showed some lame ass part for sigma, and some kick ass part for ng2. So this guy is clearly trying to make ng2 look better.
They show the first level from both Sigma and Ninja Gaiden II, which is somewhat tame compared to later levels. NGII gets a hell of a lot crazier than that. From this point in the video to the end of the game, the action becomes none stop.
yea it does :)
you know what ng sigma and ng 2 looks the same even if sigma runs at 1080p and 2 runs at 585p don't see a difference in them to be honest
Slightly unfair, the comparison is not in 1080p, so basically that in turn makes the comparison unjustified as they're not comparing the versions at their best.
And of course you know this by viewing a x320 resolution video comparison.
all i can say is there both look the same
If NG2 was on Blu-ray and HHD cached, i bet it would be able to have 'More' detail like Sigma. ^what iv been saying all along^ but u xbot tards think its a pissing contest...
Pain said... "If NG2 was on Blu-ray and HHD cached, i bet it would be able to have 'More' detail like Sigma. " And who says it's a pissing contest? Oh yeah, not xbots, not droids, but freaking retarded fanboys in GENERAL! Thay are both great games, get em all and then you are full of win, that is all...lol
I'm currenly playing Ninja Gaiden II; However I went back and Played a few stages of Sigma to see and feel the differences. The game play in Sigma is so much slower. It's still kind of fun but no where near as good or intense as NGII. The soundtrack in NGII is fantastic and cutting off enemy limbs is a blast. It's hard to compare the two. It's obvious that the resolution in NGII is lower than Sigma but there's also a billion more things going on onscreen in addition to more special FX. Sigma is based on a 4 year old Xbox game. It's not hard to take an old game and put it in 1080p, especially since they didn't change it much. It's almost like bragging that Soul Calibur One on XBLA is running at 1080P when Soul Calibur IV is only running at 720p. And yes, Ninja Gaiden II does run at 60fps. That's been well documented.
This article is definitely flamebait, but also consider Sigma and Soul Calibur on XBLA are not even close to the same. Sigma includes a better framerate, self shadowing (which NG2 lacks) on the characters, updated/higher poly models, updated textures and effects, etc. So no, its not really the same. If NGS was a direct port, you'd have a point, but while designwork is the same, much was updated in the process.
Now wait a minute. Most of us play Ninja Gaiden for it's graphics, am I right?
The original Ninja Gaiden for Xbox ran at 60fps. So how does the Playstation 3 have an improved Frame Rate? I'll tell you one thing, they didn't do much to improve Sigma over the Original Ninja Gaiden. I spent hours doing side by side comparisons. I like the original Ninja Gaiden/Sigma, don't get me wrong but if Playstation 3 fanboys want to brag about a 4 year old Xbox game run at 1080p on PS3, more power to you.
@ Dannagar Are u fanboy, stupid or just blind ? NGS is way better in graphic than black on xbox1. It does run 1080p and 720p. Block 1080p on your tv then run sigma and then run on 1080p you will se the difrence (ofc if u tv support 1080p). Shaders, shadows, FX everything is upgraded. Look at Ryu model is so f****' great. Lots, lots, lots of polygons and beautiful shaders on his armor/blade. I played Black on Xbox (still have) and i have Sigma i see the difrence. 60FPS/1080P/High Polygon Models (Ryu FTW !)/High Resolution FMVs/Good shaders/Better FX. Maybe on PS3 there will be NG2 Gamma ^^ Hope ^^
Dannagar, you spent hours doing side by side comparison between Sigma and the previous versions and you couldn't tell the difference? Bwhaahahahahahahahahahahaha. Talk about green colored glasses.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma http://www.shobbo.com/UserF... Ninja Gaiden Black http://i.testfreaks.com/ima... HD Video Comparison http://www.gamevideos.com/v... If you cant tell that NGS looks 10 times better than black. Then you must think that Super Mario Brothers on SNES looks the same as Super Mario Galaxy.
@deeznuts Did I say I couldn't tell a difference? I said there wasn't much improvement. For the most part, I'm talking about game play which should be most important to gamers but on the subject of the visuals Sigma runs in 1080p, that's a given. The blood is obviously better than the original NG. In some areas (not all) they use updated texture maps. They stamped a bunch of leave all over the landscape in the first minute of the game. They uses an ugly glow filter. In the end, it's still the same game I played 4 years ago on the original Xbox. However, my original post was that Ninja Gaiden II is a far superior game and not because of visuals. It's simply a funner game to play. No matter how hard you try, you can't make Sigma a better game because it runs at 1080p. Ninja Gaiden II has far more on screen enemy's. This can be seen in the Test of Valor. It uses gallons of blood that gush everywhere, not a little cup of blood that splats on the floor like in Sigma. And I simply enjoy all the flying limbs. What more can I say? Most of you are looking at 1080p on Sigma but aren't realizing or recognizing what it isn't doing compared to what Ninja Gaiden II is doing. I'm not a fanboy. I probably have more Nintendo and Playstation brand games than you'll play in a life time. However I'm not going to give credit to Sigma just because it runs in 1080p. It's an old Xbox hand me down.
@deeznuts "However I'm not going to give credit to Sigma just because it runs in 1080p" - give it a credit ! it so good game... (Alma looking ;) ) "I said there wasn't much improvement" - there is much improovment and it's a remake of black not ninja gaiden 2
Sigma has bland textures and last generation animations and effects compared to NG2. Sigma has inferior lighting and is slow and weak looking. I promise you NG2 is not the same as Sigma only the art is not the tech what so ever. Looking at the HDR lighting in NG2 and the texture on the bigger beasts not to mention the enviroments I find it comical people swear this looks like Sigma the only thing they have in common is the charactors and the common art direction. The AI, Animations, lighting, the number of enemies in NG2 makes it a world apart. Not to mention the real time hack-flesh and blood physics. EDIT: Great for the most part your dissagree's are civil. I dissagree that the animations are about on par, NG2 has more fluid natural animations that follow throw with every frame Sigma has a *kung-Fu* for the NES quality to the animations they look more choppy and incomplete.
Both are amazing games and both look very similar to eachother. given the fact that Sigma did come out a year ago, you have to atleast aknowledge something went right on the ps3 for them to compare the two. I mean, 1st gen ps3 game against a 3rd gen xbox 360 game? I love Ninja Gaiden 2, though and feel it is probably the 2nd best game of its kind. Almost etching out god of war. This for me personally. I know others will ultimatley disagree with me, as they love to do. I am a very picky gamer and I like what I like. Doesn't matter if it's xbox 360 or ps3 or nes, snes, gen or turbo grafix 16.
ng2 has better textures and lighting. the animations are pretttty much on par sigma has better frame rate and resolution. gameplay I cant compare I haven't played ng2 but they BOTH have + and -'s and are still very solid titles
You obviously have no idea what your talking about. Both games show very low rez and bland textures, NG2 has been criticised by many reviews that the backgrounds/textures look bad. Sigma, does look more impressive (RYU's suit, bosses, etc), because it can, it isn't as big of a game that NG2, concerning levels, enemies on screens, gore, body's that don't dissapear, etc. So NG2 has way more hardware hitting effects going on and still manages to keep some nice visuals. NG2 still should have looked more impressive, concerning detail. but i spose the art direction Team ninja go for, can only be improved so much, due for the fact that it doesn't go for realism, etc.
haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahh a They both looks like fuking GARBAGE and God of War III is going to absolutely PULVERIZE lame as$ Ninja Gaiden.
Sorry Sigma looks Xbox-like while its running lol.
Don't cry because sigma was better than NG2. I know it sucks but you can either keep denying it or just grow up and buy a ps3.
bottom line...Itagaki is a total douche, and didn't deserve to have the marks he recieved for NG1...He made fun of the team that made Sigma (which is now regarded as the definitive NG experience, recieving a better average than NG2)...then he pumps out NG2, and its not even as good...there isn't a person alive that doesn't like it when a douchebag gets whats coming... personally I don't care...NG2 seems to be getting accurate reviews...the rest were overrated imo...
Im a ninja gaiden fan. NG 2 is better than NG1 in all its forms. If Ng sigma wasnt on ps3 youd say its crap. If you actually played through NG 2 you would know that it is far superior to NG1/black/sigma. Not because its better, but its actually a new game with added stuff which makes it better. Camera and difficulty dont bother me, only slightly glitchy which makes me give it a 9.5. Ive played through it twice, which is probaly 2 times more than most reviewers. Ng 2 may have glitches, but sigma came out 3 years after the xbox 1 game. It has good looking characters, but still based off the same environments, chracters/bosses, combat, weapons, nimpo etc. All of those aspects have been INSANLEY IMPROVED in NG2 ONLY. The weapons and moves alone make NG 2 better than all of the previous versions.
I got both. and they are both great but ng 2 got more action in it. Dame ng2 is hard:P
pointless video, only showing the very first level of sigma which was pretty much a tutorial, could have been from the demo.
Actually looking at this you'd have to think Sony got an easy pass with Sigma while TI seemed like he was punished for being arrogant when it comes to reviews.
not only is the video pretty lame in that it's comparing 2 totally different games, but it doesn't even use proper snips from each game to compare. But from video alone you can't really judge the difference between these two games anyway. You have to sit down and play both for more than an hour to appreciate them... At first I thought Sigma was hands down better looking but after getting deeper into NG 2 I realized that it too has it's strong points [in graphics]. I'd hate to say either way, but if memory serves me right I think Sigma was better looking all around. And it certainly didn't have the annoying frame rate hitches that NG2 has. Either way, don't care, both are solid games in their own right w/ or w/o problems... & I do own both thank you very much...
NG2 has a lot more stuffs going on than Sigma, but the environment can be super narrow at sometime, like there is on stair in NG2 that has like literally 50+ ninja coming at you at the same time, but the game slow down ALOT.
God, the Fanboys on this site are so F**** dumb sometimes!
Gametrailers doing it again... There's probably no difference but the Sigma they use is a DEMO. Why? Because it's showing Hayabusa in his ninja tights in the first level which is not the case in the final version. And that's all they show, ONLY the things that are included in the demo. For 360 they show Hayabusa's charge move, swallow dive, cinematic kill, and his jutsu. For PS3 sigma DEMO they showed the area with only 2 ninjas (even in level one there are areas with more ninjas), no jutsu, no charge, 1 unsuccessful swallow dive against the boss so no decapitation, and Rachel is also supposed to do decapitation with her counter, showing cinematic action of the decapitation, that's how you play her, and the vid just won't show it. Purposely and unfairly dumbing down the action on Sigma DEMO. Personally I do like NG2 better because the enemies are harder and has better cut scenes. But WTF is with this unfair comparison again??? F*** Gametrailers.
GT would of done one in HD and it would of been fair. This video is obviously done in favor of Ninja Gaiden II. I don't know how this passed off as news.
That is a NG2 DEMO also.
ninja gaiden 2 looks slightly better but its barely any difference really
NGII without comparison is ok. but it's not even close to where NG was.
NG2 looks better then Sigma. <---Fact. Sigma is just a port from an old Xbox game. What more could you expect graphically? Overall Sigma was a great game anyway. One of my favorite.
I have both games and NGS has clearly better graphics ! Sorry to say but I believe the turmoil at Tecmo ruined NG2.
Well maybe you're right. I am just judging it from the video because haven't played NG2 yet...
Incorrect information: NG is not just a port, But a complete remake,with shaders,textures,shadowing,60f ps,1080p. Next!
Tecmo/Team Ninja what will ever they do in the future now they'll support multi platform.
My Ninja Gaiden is bigger than your Ninja Gaiden!
...Of course my friend xbot! We the xbots have the bigger version of NG... the bigger PILE OF SH!T! we only love crap and trashy games like NG2, the best horsesh!t game I ever played in my entire live of xbot!...Only my garbage xbox 360 could run this piece of crap game...I'm so proud of owning this console! Xbox360 to the win! PS3 FANS STOP THAT, YOU ONLY HAVE THE BETTER VERSION OF NG, BECAUSE THE BIGGER PIECE OF SH!T IS OURS! YOU WERE OWNED!
GiantEnemyCrab is being sarcastic, making fun of tough-talkin' fanboys. not claiming the 360 version is superior. once again u r way off. do I need to post my backup again showing u to be a lying fanboy...? **EDIT** ok here we go, qwert put both these comments up within an hour of each other under an NG2 article: "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." if you look in his/her profile u will see those comments from about a week ago posted within an hour of each other under an NG2 article. so, this would mean qwert is a time traveller because how could you play thru the demo and the full game in less than an hour, let alone why would you? plus qwert said it took longer than that to beat already. so yeah a real-life time traveller... or maybe just a LIAR!!!
n to b - my friend xbot, you make me laugh so much! All us the xbots are so funny aren't we...HAHAHAHAHAHAH....so you are tracking me, my friend you love my dish!t comments...thank you...and yes i playe and finished ninja gayden 2...the worst gaming experience of my life...I'm not a liar...xbots aren't liars...an Im a xbot:I love crappy games just like you guys...xbots love crap....WE WANT CRAP!
All I see from Sony fanboys are them saying "NG2 is a FLOP" because it's scoring in the 8.0's, and it's not a 9.0 or above in most, but not all, places. What about Gran Turismo 5? It was billed as AAA, yet only scored an 80 in Metacritic. That means it was scoring in the 7.0's in some places, if it averaged an 80. Does that make it a flop, like Lair and Haze? The point is, every console has games that don't live up to original expectations, but it doesn't mean the game is bad.
The only reason most of them are saying that is because most 360 fanboys in this site did the same for PS3 games that scored more 8's than 9's.... It's the N4G 360 fanboy standard that if a game doesn't get 90+ scores, it's officially a flop. Now NG2 was praised as the best action game, the best Ninja Gaiden game, This summer best game and the most ridiculous of all, as the game that was going to stomp on MGS4... lol For all that... yes NG2 can be considered a flop. :)
Q:What about Gran Turismo 5? It was billed as AAA, yet only scored an 80 in Metacritic. That means it was scoring in the 7.0's in some places, if it averaged an 80. Does that make it a flop, like Lair and Haze? A: Well, as far as I now Gran Turismo is not out yet...Is predicted to be out in 2009...I don't know what you are talking about!...Oh wait, you are talking about GT5-Prologue, don't you? wow sorry man! GT5-P is not the complete version of GT5, that's because is calling Prologue...Prologue is like a iniciation of the real game GT5 that will come in 2009...GT5-prologue is great and spectacular but is a incomplete game, whith some feautures like the longevity being one of the most particular, thta's because the reviewers didn't gave to it 9 and 10, because it's not the complete version of GT5...Ok is PROLOGUE...OK...not GT 5...only on 2009...than you'll see the scores , ok...get it, man? If not I am proud to help you in your doubts, I'm seeing that you are fresh in this things of gaming, aren't you?
its not like u xbots do it. matter of fact u guys do it the most. u called all of these a flop: resistance(one of the best shooters) warhawk(one of the best online) uncharted(wen it was in the 80s) ratchet and clank(wen it was in the 80) folklore( a good rpg/action game) and many more so please stfu
You and the other 360 fanatics should take that advice when judging PS3 games.
please send me a link, all I see now is a few lone freaks like POG amidst a sea of stupid droid spam posts (people like Sir_Ken_Kooch-rag).
An HD video would of been better.
both look the same and thats a bad thing for ninja gaidan 2.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma = 1080p @ 60fps Ninja Gaiden II = 720p @ variable frame rate that isn't stable
Ninja Gaiden II is a pretty solid 60 fps. It's about as buggy as Devil May Cry 4 (which I saw slow down maybe twice in the game for a second). At the start of the game, I saw it slow down for a second. I haven't encountered that at any other point in the game. maybe you should try the game before hand. I assure you that you won't see an unstable frame rate.
Ninja gaiden Xbox Ninja Gaiden Black Xbox Ninja Gaiden Sigma PS3 Ninja Gaiden II 360 and I will say I like NG2 the most. what do you expect its got everything in past games and then some!
Do you prefer the slowdown of ng2?
havent seen it yet... I wonder if you even own the game?
