"Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Tecmo's impending re-release of the Microsoft-published Ninja Gaiden 2, is branded as a remake. We all know better though, don't we? My sincere hope is that Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is one of the rare improvements because, unlike its predecessor, Ninja Gaiden 2 wasn't a very good game. Its camera couldn't follow the action, the combat lacked Gaiden's precision, and the environments were cramped and ugly. It felt, as I said in my review, unfinished. The Itagaki-less Team Ninja has a second shot at living up to the first game's legacy. Good luck to them."
