Brand new gameplay, characters, story info plus "Spider Clan' gameplay
But so far NG2 doesn't impress me at all. Especially considering NG on the Xbox pretty much redefined the action/adventure genre.
The enviroments are just so bland and the graphics as a whole are not all that impressive really by todays standards. Gameplay is still hella tight, but I fear it's just not going to have the same impact on the genre as NG had.
I'll still get it though, regardless.
anyway...back to the topic....
I agree with you...kinda...
The grahics don't look mind blowing or anything like that...
But If the gameplay is Deep and the A.I is as smart(or smarter) than NG...
Then Im Itagaki will have my $$$...
Lol, I think I did. Must be something I ate today! ;)
I thought the graphic would look more realistic different then the first one,but I guess its kinda the same or maybe not.
definately aren't awe inspiring like the first time I saw Ninja Gaiden on the original Xbox. That is bc the graphics of the original were far ahead of a lot of other games at the time.
One other point is that this game is still in development. And with Itigakis past track record when it comes to graphics, I am pretty confident that the game will be beautiful on release.
One thing is for sure NG is definately a hardcore gamers game with the insane AI. In most action games you don't even have to use the block button, in NG it would surely equal death.
I hope this game sells a lot of copies, because I don't want the hardcore action genre to die out so gamers will be left with more movie licensed garbage or clones of other high selling games.
this game lookign at it know and comparing it to any hack and slash out there this game is a 10/10 game not to mention its being released 2008 this game will be amazing
Maybe they're just using the Sigma Engine for now... Who Know ?
GOTY 2008. Hands down.
With the games that are going to be released in 2008, on both platforms, I very much doubt Ninja Gaiden 2 will be voted the best game of 2008. It'll have immense competition.
From the 2008 games we've seen so far, and comparing to what we've seen of Ninja Gaiden 2, I don't think many people would agree with you. That's not say the game is bad, but there are just more eagerly anticipated, bigger games, set for release soon that will probably overshadow this in terms of appeal.
Yeah like MGS4, FF XIII, maybe GOW III or even Gears II
GOW3 , FFXII(Possibly) and GeoW2(possibly) are 09 titles...
But yeah, MGS4 is a contender if not the sure winner hands down.......
but Its too early too tell, actually....1 year too early hahaha...
Heavy Rain(Dunno if thats 08 tho...)
Fable 2 are looking very promising...
I have my money on MGS4 though
I don't know bro. Winning some Awards... absolutely. But GOTY, I can't see it happening. I see the contenders being MGS4, Fable 2 (I LOVED THE FIRST ONE...ehem...sorry), GTAIV , and RE5 (IF those last two come out in 08). However, I see the real winner either being GTAIV or RE5. But thats just my opinion ofcourse. Too many good games are coming out in 08, too many contenders.
best hack and slash of 08, if that a category. well that and DMC4
DMC shouldn't even be mentioned when the topic is about NG2 >:O
I like DMC's artwork and characters
but when it comes to the game play it self.
It as good as having a friend hit you with a shovel on the groin..
I hate DMC...stupid A.I....Its like every enemy is a sandbag put in
a specific spawn place just to make Dante look good when he'so hitting them...
yea in all honestly alot of people are really picky about the graphics but that is the look of the game that is what the style was befor...so I doubt they will try and change it to much...jus gonna have more destrucability and more things happening at once......like limbs flyn everywhere sawweeeetttttt but yea the AI is retarded cant wait to see the crazy things this badass can do with blades on his feet lol
2008 is gonna be a good year for games. MGS4 will finally be released...and NG2 in one year!!! Personally my most anticipated title is NG2. The graphics and animation both seem to be improved and the gameplay....I don't think there are words available to describe how amazing the gameplay looks. Ninja Gaiden has been one of my favorite franchises since it's release back in 89(I think it was 89). This is the only other game (Street Fighter was the first) that had me buying each iteration of the title just to get the total experience. I own Ninja Gaiden, Ninja Gaiden Black and Ninja Gaiden Sigma...I anxiously await NG2's release. Itagaki-san and Team Ninja have the action genre by the throat.
From the looks of it their trying to keep it running at 60 fps, doing that sacrifices have to be made. Also it's funny that it looks a little the same as sigma, however the game is not the same engine, it's new Built from the ground-up for 360, It's going to feel the same because it's from the same staff.
also having the same engine does not necessarily mean that it will behave the same even in terms of graphics look at bioshock, gears , lost odessy , and ut3,.
i just hope that they dont turn ryu into some kind of war machine.
The first NG was nice because there was that special ninja feeling.
But from what i v seen they are slowly drifting away from that...
(flash gordon moves + kratos fury + batman costume + shinigami weapon duh!)
anyways, its still good as it is...
First of all you can't tell the difference between Sigma and NG2 and even DMC4 looks great next to NG2. NG2 should trump DMC4 in every way but that's not going to happen. Perhaps the first true action fighting adventure next gen game is going to be God of War 3 because everything so far has just been an upgrade of their last gen counter parts.
all three are to different to compare, DMC is a big success in japan, and some what NG , GOD OF WAR is a success hear in the us and in europe.
DMC4 mite just end up making it big more than GOW3 and NG2 because it's a multiplatform game and it's huge success in japan.
BTW i'm not saying that all three won't sell out or become big classics, i'm talking about who mite rack in the most.
"First of all you can't tell the difference between Sigma and NG2 and even DMC4 looks great next to NG2. NG2 should trump DMC4 in every way but that's not going to happen.

and what make God of WarIII any different??
unless it is going to reinvent the genre alltogether and you know this becuase you've played it right? oh...you didn't.
to the difference you will see from God of War 2 vs a Next-Gen God of War 3, but I don't know about "first true action fighting adventure next gen game ", well t hats just BS because Heavenly sword is a good game that falls under that Genre.
I also think DMC will be a good game, how long that game has been in development? It should be refined..even though PS3 fans abandoned Capcom and the series after it went multi, I'll still buy it because I like Hack n slashers. Not like the "Dynasty Warriors" type but ya know..
NG2 will also come to daddy..just picked up Mario Galaxy, Toys R Us have the $25 gift certificate deal if you buy the game so I had to do it.
thnx, i think they will both be great, and what wrong with Dynasty Warriors lol. Dmc, GOW and NG2 will all be great. i overreacted
STFU you picky bastards. This game looks good. Besides, this is NINJA GAIDEN. It's not about the graphics...it's about kicking ass...and 2 seems to be handing out ass kickery in spades
This is my GOTY!!! cant wait :)
is story. bottom line, the story just sucks balls, its not interesting. I mean yeah its cool your a ninja, but they need to work on Ryu's story.
When it comes to combat Ninja Gaiden is really the unparalled king, with DMC at a very close second, and I'm sorry to say God of War shouldn't even be mentioned among the latter two as it is a game that has a pretty mediocre combat system. You just cannot compare God of War to NG/DMC as the game's greatness doesn't actually revolve around its combat system, for it did it would be a total failure. I dont' know why people are crying about NG2 not looking so great, it seems like this day and age everyone is a complete graphics whore, and maybe if they would just stop and look at how great the gameplay is they would know what the first game so great. Ninja Gaiden didn't redefine the genre as somehow said earlier, the first DMC came years before it, but it did expand upon it
NG is the ultimate game in it gener.i loved hack and slash gener when i played NG (in xbox) when i finshed the game i tried to find subtituation but nothing was like it:(DMC/GoW/ even heavenly swored which been done in next gen platform cannot touch it)
Dumb ass fanboy found sh*t quality videos to bash the game lol.
by the way i happen to be fan of the series idiot.. so much negativity runs in your blood dude get a life
When a hardcore PS3 fan fuc posts 360 news you should know better.
2007: HALO 3 + BIOSHOCK + COD4 + MASS EFFECT FTW !!!
2008: GEARS 2 + ALAN WAKE + GTA IV + FABLE 2 + HUXLEY + FALLOUT 3 + HALO WARS + DARK SECTOR + TOO HUMAN + FORCE UNLEASHED + DMC4....
+ NINJA GAIDEN 2.... FTW !!!
What a GREAT TIME 2B A GAMER !!!
Ninja Gaiden 2 looks sweet cant wait
TI is showing off the concept of the game not the game's progress, this is a rough draft of the game.
#21 you forgot about Elveon, project Offset
Its like he choose not to go to the original source to get the full story on purpose due to the quality of the video. Its not like this guy would post anything thats positive towards the Xbox.
So now instead or rollng you do a fast side step movement or something, I like it. And it's very fast.
