Next-Gen describes: :
"With many still discovering and returning to 2004's breakneck bloodbath, be it through 360 emulation or PS3's Sigma remake, there's no denying the timeliness of announcing a proper sequel. The hardcore, faced with the rise of non-gaming and Japan's labored uptake of new consoles, are yearning for some old-school pain. Ninja Gaiden 2, as you discover from the off, has more than enough to go around."
"The enemy AI changes as he loses an arm or a foot," Yoshifuru Okamoto, the game's producer explains. "Our objective is to show cool action right up until the enemy is killed. But our ninja won't search bodies or steal weapons from the dead. Bodies remain solely for the purpose of graphic realism. I think the increased power of Xbox 360 has made a unique way of depicting violence possible: how the blood is spilt, how the body is dismembered and how the parts remain on the ground."
