Some new Screenshots from the PS3-Action-Game Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.
I seriously cannot wait for this game! I think it's the next release on my wishlist. Loved the first in all 3 flavours (NG, NG:B and NG:S) never got around to playing NG:2 I nearly picked it up with a 360 but held off in the end. I actually really enjoyed using Rachael in NG:S and am so happy to see her returning along with the other 2 girl characters. If the first Sigma is anything to go buy, 2 should be awesome!
You did the right thing, imo, in not getting NB2 for 360. I did, and while I still mostly enjoyed the game the camera was awful(and got stuck all the time) and also, though many will argue the opposite, I'm glad the daft amounts of blood and guts have been scaled rigght back-along with the damn camera there was often so much on screen gore that I couldn't tell exactly what was what in the heat of battle. Another thing-I'm really glad they seem to have sorted the two real issues I had with the game for Sigma(and prettied it up a bit AND added sufficient content to make a second NG2 purchase reasonable)the fact is that the camera sould have been patched for the 360 and that it hasn't doesn't reflect well on Tecmo at all. I'm happy to have the chance to play a working version of the game and happy with the extras but the way they treated 360 gamers over these faults was really poor so don't expect any fixes when you find a bug or ten! Anyway, good to have the co-op and the extra ladies isn't it?
Seems a shame to the true 360 fans seeing as how the games reboot was originally an X-box exclusive. I don't know how much neglect was down to Itagakis "unexpected" departure but as you say, it could have been patched and a lot of "lesser" games recieve the fixing treatment. I put so many hours into the original Sigma, yeah, it drove me a little bit (more) insane but I loved the challenge and the feeling of finally completing the game under the Master Ninja tag was great indeed! Hoping the same holds true with the sequal. The loss of blood doesn't really bother me that much I never played the original for the OTT gore, it was down to the gameplay and the challenge. That being said however, I would like to experience the bloodbath that is the 360 version at least once. I'm a huge 3rd person action game fan, this along with Bayonetta, Castlevania, God of War III and MGS Rising (I expect Rising to be this style of game) I think I'm going to be very happy for quite a while to come. I just hope the games are spaced pretty evenly for release.
