"For an Xbox game, Ninja Gaiden was breathtakingly slick and attractive, but on PS3, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, as this semi-remake is being called, is out of this world. To put it into perspective, the pre-rendered Xbox cutscenes that took literally months to create, PS3 somehow manages to better in real-time gameplay. Talk about progress."
Plus, it comes loaded with great big, solid wedges of new stuff not seen in the original. New levels, new monsters, new weapons and new moves for starters, plus sexy bit-part character Rachel, who sent many an Xbox owner stiffening, is now a playable character too (think Michelle Marsh with a sword. And bigger tits). Not so much a nail in Xbox's coffin, as a ten-ton wrecking ball.
