Ninja Gaiden II Hands-on by Gameplayer

Gameplayer has gone live with a hands-on preview of Xbox 360 exclusive release Ninja Gaiden II which talks about how the combat and gameplay unfolds.

"Everything rolls along at a smooth 60 frames per second with that Dead or Alive level of character detail and environment sheen. It's an impressive feat, especially when you see a dozen enemies on screen and returning hero Ryu Hayabusa carving through them at lightning speed."

No thanks. Give me MGS4, Killzone 2, LBP, Resistance 2, Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy XIII.

RealTimeWeaponChange3884d ago

Who knew droids could be so dumb?

St03883d ago

Is it 1080p like NGS on the PS3?

Pain3883d ago (Edited 3883d ago )

compared to Sigma YES!!!

there is "Just More" on and in Sigma from the size of the bricks on the the walls, the weapon effect details to the shine on everything.

I Look at NG2 and its like its Less in EVERYWAY DVD9 FTL

But Xbots will disagree cuz they BLIND and or Dumb, But i sooo care about xbots kids feelings...

7h3ultim8p003883d ago

Argh. Whatever man. Why do Sony fanboys always mention those SAME games in almost that exact same order? It gets really tiring. At least put KZ2 and LBP last or something, so my brain doesn't get bored reading the same predictable sh!t over and over.

ravinshield3883d ago

its more like MGS 3.5, Killzone 1.1, LBP, Resistance 1.5, Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy XIII.

PSMonster213883d ago (Edited 3883d ago )

That was a GREAT ONE ravinshield. How long did it take you to think of that? Are all bots as dumb as you?

Rattles3884d ago

it would be pretty cool atleast it would sell on ps3.

BLaZiN PRopHeT3884d ago

do you dont think itll sell on the 360?

sonarus3884d ago

It will sell on the 360 just fine. But saying it is the game every sony fan wants is a little silly. I know tons of 360 owners who don't even know the game exists. Team ninja games don't sell too well anyway

wAtdaFck3884d ago

It would be nice to play it, but hey. A gamer wants a good game. I'm sure there are a few 360 fans out there who want to play God of War III.

BLaZiN PRopHeT3884d ago


Thats not true NG/NGB sold 1.5 million copies and DOA4 sold over 1 million

Ghoul3884d ago (Edited 3884d ago )

ninja gaiden was a great game. but thats it. its very hardcore with a weak story and deep gameplay mechanics.

but dont forget guys ninja gaiden is a xbox1 franchise. It was a nice addition to add sigma to the ps3 lineup so i guess there are quite a few ps3 only users out there that would want ninja gaiden 2 on the ps3 :D

Agriel3884d ago

I'm not sure the exact numbers for Sigma, but I have a feeling that the only reason it did as well as it did was the timing of the release. at the time there really wasn't a big game line up on the ps3, so Sigma probably got a bigger push then it would have normaly. If it was released this year with the line the ps3 has, I doubt a lot of Ps3 owners would even give it a 2nd look.

dan-boy3884d ago

because it's run-jump-hack-slash repeat over and over, they've made the games too hard to compensate for the complete lack of everything else! just like dmc, execpt the latter is pretty easy in comparison! both crap and both seriously overrated imo!

i notice it's another thread from'm surprised this was put up, seeing as it's not bashing the 360.

dragunrising3884d ago

Your an idiot. Ninja Gaiden and its remix version Black sold far more than Sigma did. I don't have the source but I know for a fact that Sigma didn't sell over 500,000 copies. The Xbox versions sold at least 3 times as many if not more. Why would you release Ninja Gaiden 2 on PS3 when no one would buy it? Its an Xbox franchise as much as MGS, and Devil May Cry is a Playstation one.

GametimeUK3884d ago

I agree... I also see Ninja Gaiden as an X-box franchise... Just like I see GTA as a Playstation franchise XD

JasonPC360PS3Wii3884d ago

I was just about to put those numbers up myself.

sonarus3883d ago

Well we'll see how sales for NG2 are

St03883d ago

It's not 1080p like on the PS3?

Richdad3883d ago (Edited 3883d ago )

Are you kidding me NG game sold well on Xbox 1 even when there were less audience and not hyped that much now it has the hype it will definetly sell no less than 3 million on 360. If it had been on PS3 it wouldnt have sold a half million how NGS has done, it was one of the worst selling game of the year on PS3.
Most 360 users are aware of NG2 only those who are new are not know it due to series being on Xbox 1 first which was not a popular console then on PS3 where no one purchased it.

INehalemEXI3883d ago (Edited 3883d ago )

You forgot ninpo's. Both DMC and NG have great hack and slash gameplay and overated they are not. Some people just don't appreciate a good hack n slash IMO.

dan-boy3883d ago

ninja gaiden i felt was too much! for me it's same ol same ol on every level, and they upped the difficulty to frustration levels because of it! as i said, i'll be skipping it

cmrbe3883d ago

If there is one game i want from the x360 lineup its NG2. If this game was multi plat. I bet it would sell more on the PS3. This game i am pretty confident is a game that alot of PS owners want as these types of games generally do very well on PS. Heck i almost bought a xbox for NG1. Sigma was a great game and the PS fans warmed up to it which didn't surprise me at all.

wow4u3883d ago

Ninja Gaiden as a run and slash adventure game will do *JUST FINE* on the Xbox 360 fanbase.

And, considering how amazing the game looks to be, I dont think anyone can say otherwise.

Based on the previews thus-far, the game is going to get a lot of good press when it is released. This will get the game into the minds of the wider audience.

Ninja Gaiden fails me in so many way
its the same old sh!t over and over again
i dont care 4 this game

Herbert tholdpervert3883d ago

totally agree this game is crap and they are putting it agents MGS

destroyah3884d ago (Edited 3884d ago )

Eh? Um not really. I have Ninja Gaiden Sigma and the only reason I haven't sold it is because they'll only give me $10 or less for it. I paid $60.

Team Ninja doesn't know how to create a story that doesn't suck and the voice actors are just lol.

chaosatom3333884d ago

the only thing i am jealous of is Gears, not NG2 or fable 2.

socsca3884d ago

You MORONS! Learn to play it and you'll appreciate it, you don't like it cus you suck at it, story has NOTHING to do with this games quality. If the story is indicative of a good game then the only really good game out there is mass effect, bc its basically the only game in existance that has a good story. You are like the people claiming DMC is button mashing, God of War is button mashing (awesome button mashing, I love it). DMC and NG, tho very different are more alike, extremely deep and difficult to master.

dragunrising3884d ago

on You'll get far more money for it than Lamestop. Trust me.

Bnet3433883d ago

Yes the story does suck balls, but the gameplay reigns supreme. Gameplay topples everything, story isn't a major part and if you don't agree maybe you should read a book and not play games if story is that important to you.

7h3ultim8p003883d ago

Yeah...and Devil May Cry just makes so much more sense. I mean, the dialog in that game is pure genius. /end sarcasm

People don't buy DMC and NG to watch 50 minutes of cutscenes. You sound like the game handed your ass to you and you couldn't adapt. So all you could do was b!tch about it. Either that or you are just a troll.

wow4u3883d ago

Dude, take it to the open zone. you sound ridiculous.

devilhunterx3883d ago

use the Flying Swallow attack. You can defeat 90% of the game that way. The last boss was a joke.

mikeslemonade3884d ago

Ninja Gaiden 2 is an overated game. All it is is an upgrade to Sigma. Give me Too Human or Alan Wake.

Kausdt3884d ago

Over-rated? Sequel for one of the best action games ever made, and still hardly anyone notices it. I think NG2 is very, very under-rated.

Bnet3433883d ago

How is it overrated? Are you retarded? It hasn't been rated at all you idiot.

7h3ultim8p003883d ago

lol. Fail. You haven't even played Sigma you fool. And the game is not even out yet.

mikeslemonade3883d ago

Did I say overated by reviews? No. It's overated by Xbox owners. I bought Sigma and sold it. It is overated because it's really doing nothing new like DMC4.
