Does Ninja Blade whiff on the fatal strike?
you can only fail so hard... i cant believe people was comparing this to god of war
FLOP! Somebody should email all of these 5's to Flip Flop Gaymer. After all, they DID say Ninja Blade was going to outdo God of War and Ninja Gaiden.
I dont care what Gametrailers has to say, the demo was great fun!
am actually surprise they game such a low score to a 360 exclusive, i guess that mean i have to reevaluate everything i though is real, huh. oh well, the game is not that bad base on the demo, at least a solid 7.1 or something but that just me, i guess i would have to play the entire game before anything. still shock gametrailers gave a 360 exclusive such a low score, does this mean their trying to become a legitimate gaming site?
Yeah am in shock too, gametrailers has always given irrational scores when it come to 360 exclusives so this does not make compute to at all, i want to see wat angle their working now
You must've played a different demo to me - it was awful. Nothing but QTEs and a big hairy spider.
i never got gametrailer myself and its especially weird to see them gave a 360 exclusive a low score, i wonder wats up? does anyone have any idea? i mean they been pretty anal about which console they prefer, and to see them talk so sourly about a 360 exclusive is something i never though i would ever see while i play videogames.
".2 - Yeah am in shock too Yeah am in shock too, gametrailers has always given irrational scores when it come to 360 exclusives so this does not make compute to at all, i want to see wat angle their working now " The excuses never stop. Oh, now that the conspiracy theorists have egg on their face it's suddenly does not compute. The only thing irrational were the cry baby PS3 fanboys who cried foul everytime a 360 game scored well or outscored an inferior PS3 port.
even with all these opinions all up in my face i still like the game and see no problem with it. come on even, if it was aaa ps3 gamers would still not get it, gears and halo are aaa (and look at what kind of treatment those games get here at n4g.)
The difference is that Quantic Dream and Sony Santa Monica know how to properly implement QTE sequences. I love how you had to bring Heavy Rain into this though, a game that has been winning over even the harshest critics since it was first revealed in 2005. You even changed your Ninja Gaiden avatar. Feeling bitter? :)
"GUNS N SWORDS The difference is that Quantic Dream and Sony Santa Monica know how to properly implement QTE sequences. I love how you had to bring Heavy Rain into this though. You even changed your Ninja Gaiden avatar. What happened? :)" right. (like i need to hear this) and what does it matter to you? it's a made up guy that i use as my avatar, when i get tiered of it i'll change it. http://tinypic.com/view.php...
But because its a 360 exclusive, he had to bump it up above 5...lol jk.. Seriously though, is it just me or does that also look ALOT like Heavenly Sword?...Sword that drains health...Speed (tiny blades), Average, and Heavy (big fat blade)...is it just me?..I mean..they COULD have atLEAST mentioned it..
graphics = crap gameplay = ripoff and has too much QTE's story = crap What can you really say stands out in this game? It got what it deserved as far as i'm concerned
-Both games have: -Ninja walk on walls -Sword that eats health -Tokyo being taken over, fighting in the streets to get to get to central hub. -Dash attack combo's -Family turns evil. All it needs is a a red scarf.
Ghost of Sparta it's time to finally come out of the closet, its dark in there and you need to change your diapers cause your stinking the place up :) http://i41.tinypic.com/6tn5...
... that GT favor the 360? 2008 they gave more 9+ awards to PS3 games than 360 games... Face it they are not as bias as you want to believe... 2008 is proof
I do hear you but i still cant forget some of the stunts they've pulled over the last two years. Their bias wasn't always about review scores. People are simplifying ps3 fans dislike of them to review scores alone but sorry maybe you/people need reminding of their practices from their site and staff. Bias is not meant to be worn on you sleeve or it would be too obvious. Its the other little things they do plus the fact that they are affiliated with one of the major players this gen that give me the feeling of bias. Some sites change 'ala gamespot'. Its peculiar that we can all agree that gamespot had incentives to give 'better' scores and whatever but because we dont have irrefutable proof, like the kane n lynch debacle, we cant see the reasons why bias is widespread or even possible. 'Face it they are not as bias as you want to believe... 2008 is proof' the only proof there is that they felt the ps3 had better games last year and that's hardly swimming against the stream. Explain the ps3 vs ps3 comparison where the 360 'won' or that editors comments.... its the little things 'I TELL YOU'
The biggest flop of 2009 yet. Can it beat lair in terms of review scores??? XD
was Software known for making great games?
The difference is, this wasn't touted as being a big AAA title like Lair was. I played the demo for this months ago, and while I didn't think it was terrible, I knew it was mediocre at best. That said, this game has no business being compared to God of War. I don't even know why anyone did in the first place. I guess because it's a 360 exclusive. If it was a multiplatform game, it would never have been compared to GOW 3 and would just be another title that goes by the wayside.
I hope Itagaki and Team Ninja smack From Software in the face for stealing all his concepts.
The dude reviewing this sounds so pissed.
Probably disappointed. The game promised a lot but failed to deliver like Hawx and Haze.
Not the guy who does the reviews if you've been watching invisible walls you would know that.. I did not expect this game to fail so badly in the face of the media... Yes it " borrows " "some" stuff...ok who I'm I kidding here it rips off all gameplay elements from NG, DMC and God of war but that doesnt mean its that bad! With this kind of logic no FPS should ever score above a 7/10 purely because every single one is doing the same thing over and over again, including lame ass plots. (Bioshock is an exception. Well a friend of mine is getting it soon I should have an updated opinion on this by next week, unless he see's these reviews..
A bunch of fanboy hype and in the end a game that just fails in the end. When you are taking deliberate elements from other games you should at least try and improve on what is already out there. This game looks like Ninja Gaiden + Heavenly Sword + Devil May Cry and it apparently = "eh". Oh well.
I dont care what infamous_27 has to say, the demo was lame! I Ninja Gaiden 2 was better... sucks that i wont buy Sigma 2 cuz i practically have the game... no point in buying a similar game for another $65. I'd rather use that money for another game.
hmmto bad you practically DONT have the same game as sigma 2 runs in 1080p 60fps with EXCLUSIVE DLC and extras never (and will never) to be found in ninja gaiden 2. if gimped is the way you wanna roll then so be it. thats unless you have a tube CRT TV that you play on.
But i'd rather have a Devil May Cry game more than anything. DMC >>>>>>>&a mp;a mp;g t;>>>>>> everything else. Also, i just watched the vid and i couldnt believe how much they jacked ideas from DMC3! Motorcycle up the falling building structures, riding a missiles, etc. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Also, i got NG2 on sale for less than $15 in gamestop used. There was a scratch but it still worked fine. DMC Anime Ending: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Wow, i just read your comment... and WOW! You think i have a lame ass tv? (yeah, i know, i replied to it but never read it, funny no?)
@DMC wut,dude then how did you know about the TV huh? and yeah i dunno about funny i guess,its up to you man. just thot id state facts wait! do you really have a CRT tube TV?
I found out just now through wikipedia... though i figured it was those ancient model TVs that had to rely on antennas for reception.
Dare I say...FLOP?!1
What's the definition of flop today? Sales or review scores? It always changes.
lol, so true.
Wasn't the costumes enough...? They should have called it Ninja Gay!
WOW!!! THis game can't be that bad can it?
Looks like GamePro are the only ones who like this game. Every other review I've seen is trash.
Reviews are all over the spectrum for this game.
Looks like the demo recieved better ratings and praise then the acuall game itself lol. all i hear is "the demo was fun".. i dont even think hardly anyone has even touched the full game lol.
I can't believe Gamepro gave this game a perfect score. o_0
dude ms just stop this game was about as fun as sticking a broken glass bottle up my pee hole
but but but i thought this was supposed to give God of War a run for its money......
Dont take them seriously. GT is always the best for reviews.
When this game was first announced, to me it looked like it had potential, but I'm not surprised things have turned out this way because it IS developed by FromSoftware, and they have a pretty mediocre track record. This game looks like a Ninja Gaiden-God of War clone, and trying to outdo or come close to Itagaki's Ninja Gaiden and Sony Santa Monica's God of War is a HUGE task and was just too much for a developer like FromSoftware. Gamepro gave Ninja Gaiden 2 a 4/5, but gave Ninja Blade a 5/5?? That just doesn't add up to me because Ninja Gaiden is the better Ninja game hands down.
Not looking good for M$. First halo wars and now Ninja blade. Too bad.
this review is useless. Play the game and decide for yourself. Dont let a faceless voice over tell you what game is for you.
What about the Official Xbox Magazine? http://www.oxm.co.uk/articl... Team Xbox? http://reviews.teamxbox.com... Maybe 1up then? http://www.1up.com/do/revie... Planet Xbox 360? http://www.planetxbox360.co... IGN? http://xbox360.ign.com/arti... Look,my point is;Ninja Blade failed to deliver.I agree with you that yes,there are Gaming websites and publications that are suspect in terms of credibility.But when you have more than 5 different Publications saying the exact same thing,they MUST be on to something.
Major flop right there. Isn't it dubbed the "Highly Anticipated" game? LOL
the game is ok i guess. still ninja gaiden is still better
MS don't need anything beside Halo. When they advertise xbot start buying. Sales is greater than quality only on flopboxpleasefixme180.
I still gonna buy it cause I'm use to playing flop. my favorite game is too human. I'm gonna call my console flopbox from now on.
Wow, that reviewer ripped the game hard for trying to copy Ninja Gaiden.
If you're going to rip off a hack and slash, at least rip of a good hack and slash game.
Lacks the fuzzy chin hair to be taken as a serious character.
From this review, please don't trust the media review ever again. I repeat, do not trust their reviews. If you truly want to know about a game, check gamers review instead. Yes, there would be fanboy reviews such as 10/10 Masterpiece, but always compare a fanboy review with another. You will tell that the non-fanboy would review the cons of the game. This review is so terrible and hating! I've played and finished the game and I know what's right and wrong: First of all *The story isn't that strong enough, because there are parts the game doesn't explain much *Yes the costume designs all suck (it's true, the clown is the WORST!). But that is not the MAIN ISSUE! You can costume your costume! Select different costume design like Use the clown's trousers, use the main ninja clothing, or use another costume clasps/chain mail. Best part is, you can change all the colour! Won't you want to colour and customize Dante's costume? making him dress in complete black? Or RYu Hayabusa making him dress in complete white? *Yes it has Ninja Gaiden sort of gameplay and Devil May Cry. But you do need to block, because the enemies are really annoying, as they will mostly attack you when you are about to charge up your attack. Yes you can cancel your charge attacks. *Ninja Blade didn't take anything from someone eles hard work! From Software knew what they were doing and had done their research. They knew Ninja Gaiden wasn't an original game because it heavily used elements from Shinobi from PS2! It's just NG did it the right way, and Shinobi was then overshadowed. If NG's element were all original, don't you think From Software would have been sued by now??? From Software just combined all the great Hack n Slash titles together: God of War, Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden and Heavenly Sword. *Yes some of the scenes and QTE are over the top, but they are in connection with the storyline. The debut of this game's trailer did show Ken redirecting the missle launcher, I hated it because it was too over the top. However when I played that scene with the QTE, it made sense and was nicely done! But when you actually play this game, you would know why and the QTE makes it look reasonable! After finishing the game and seeing all of Ken's move, you would list him in part of your Badass character list: Dante, Ryu, Scorpion etc. *The bashing of the street traffic (background). Anyone played Ninja Gaiden 2? if you look outside the Tokyo street, you would noticed that Team NINJA used a photo realism, and yes the game too uses a fake red and white dots traffic design. *Ken is stopping the airplane because he is that strong, story relates to his blood too. His blood isn't pure. *Yes the game does have glitches, but it isn't as bad as Ninja Gaiden 2! *I have the region free version, they only spoke in english. Yes you can set the language to be spoken in english and other languages and you can do the same to the subtitle. Everyone please try out this game, yes it's not worth $60/£40, please rent it or get it used. This game is awesome, Ken is definitely in the league of Dante and Ryu. When you see all the crazy ass moves he does, you would wonder if he is actually stronger than both of them. To all the fanboys, who bang on about it's a Ninja Gaiden clone, I have no advise or recommendation for you. Just stick to your buggy NG2, and let us enjoy this game and Sigma 2 on PS3. Gametrailers are fake just like the rest of the trash gaming sites, and they are fanboys! It's actually strange how a gaming site like them failed to realise NInja Gaiden was even a rip off of Shinobi on the PS2. Yet I never played Shinobi. This game deserves an 7-8/10 I wrote a review for it myself. http://www.trueachievements...
OUCH....... THIS GAME IS RIP OFF NG2
i was looking forward but not any more
Funny thing is it will probably outsell Killzone 2 :D
what ever makes you sleep at night :)
that's all you'd have to say. SALES. You're f!cking pathetic go back to window-shop for some better lines, since that's what you're used to.
Poor score, is this a flop? Wait, as this is an Xbox game it has immunity, silly me.
Flop of the year confirmed!
I have games for PS3 that were mixed as well. Genji and Heavenly sword but I like them for the time being.
so yet another exclusive that is getting really bad reviews. not just one may i add. i find it extremely funny that 360 owners are now saying that Gametrailers always give bad scores to 360 exclusives lol. gametrailers have always shafted PS3 games when they could so i would say this is an honest opinion... or it may even have been gametrailers being kind to 360 owners. what was it Hiphop said: 'a GOW beater' lol
Looks like panasonic23 was right http://www.n4g.com/Redirect...
dude....he posted that like 136 days ago...wtf
