IGN- Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus Review

IGN:Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus isn't a bad action game by any means. In fact, at moments it can be wildly entertaining, but those moments come bundled with a terrible camera, uneven level design, and combat that tends to cheat you as often as it challenges you. Whether you loved Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 or not, this version's missing features and spotty performance are still impossible to ignore. Simply put, the original Sigma Plus is a better port of a better game, and far more worthy of your time and money.

The story is too old to be commented.

It has some framrate problems. Turning the camera sensitivity all the way up and making the blood purple helps.

Outside of the graphics randomly dropping in quality, I never noticed anything.

izumo_lee2051d ago

Like the comments above there are occasional framerate problems & dips in graphics. Other than that the game is not so bad, could've been a better port but nonetheless i am enjoying it.

My only gripe is that there is no multiplayer, would've been a welcome addition when dealing with those insane missions. Got by the first 2 difficulties no problem with the AI but after that it can get frustrating. Not even gonna try the highest missions cause they are impossible without human help.

Finished easy & normal. Halfway through hard gonna kick some lycan ass.

admiralvic2051d ago

I certainly agree about the missions. I found it amazing how the AI went from a useful partner to absolutely worthless on hard. I was able to do the first two and almost the third, but I don't see myself beating Ninja Master or ANYONE actually beating them all on Turbo. (so no one will platinum this game)

poor vita, anxiously waiting for 'its' game

Kingthrash3602051d ago

Its game? What does that mean exactly? Whats the 3ds' s "game"...pokemon? So does that mean its still waiting...after 3 years? Please inform.

Blaze9292050d ago

how about a killer app?

DivineAssault 2051d ago (Edited 2051d ago )

"its game" will be soul sacrifice & then kill zone

edit: Its "GAMES" plus a lot more this year

Blaze9292050d ago

I agree on Killzone - looks hella good. But that's it. To me at least. Killzone would make me buy a Vita again

sherimae24132050d ago

yeah as if castlevania 3ds gets a stunning 4.7 from this reviewer!
poor 3ds also huh?

Blaze9292050d ago

what the hell are you talking about?

Kingthrash3602051d ago (Edited 2051d ago )

Ign reviews for the vita cant be trusted imo ...heck reviews in general are off.
" ngs2p isnt a bad game by any means" is how he starts off a review of a game he rates a 6. Then complains about frame rate and multiplayer. ... granted framrate is a problem, not a killer problem that would make it unplayable. multiplayer... really who care for that. ..these 2 problems are not worth a minus 4 on a total rating. Look below for more accurate scores.

admiralvic2051d ago

To be fair, I never understood the multiplayer complaints in this game. Sure the PS3 version had it, but it HARDLY worked. Not like I would expect a better working version on the Vita.

cpayne932051d ago

6 isn't bad it just isn't good, so that statement is valid. 6 is "ok" on the ign scale.

First of all, ng2 on the xbox is the superior version.I did not like sigma2 at all compared to the 360 version.anyway, I have ng2 on the vita and I do agree with everything this review said, but its still a good game on the vita non the less.its just about the same game on the ps3.this game is actually a lot faster tha. The first sigma on vita.
