NG2 is the perfect fighting-action game, it is the ultimate gaming challenge for 2008, and it's one of the best looking 'gore games' ever created. If you want to know why Master Ninja level NG players give no respect to anyone who hasn't achieved this level of action-gaming perfection, you must become one yourself.
Fans of high-speed action titles can't go wrong; in fact, they'd be foolish to look anywhere else for anything better this generation. It's just disappointing that Ninja Gaiden II -- which is said to be the last in the series -- isn't quite the flawless masterpiece I’d hoped for
Even as a casual fan of the first game, this one is a huge disappointment. While the game may start out well with it's smooth combat system and flashy gore, it doesn't take long before devolving into a boring mess that's empty of substance. You'll realize how exploration and puzzle solving are both gutted so the entire game can consist of walking through hallway after hallway hacking away at dozens of the same enemies over and over again. The only times at which this is significantly shaken up is during boss fights, which are equally monotonous and frustrating in their design. While there are glimpses of joy with it's great combat system, the game as a whole is simply not good enough after the first few levels to let it be any fun.
I found the game okay, apart from the fact that Team Ninja had the stupid urge to make it even on the Easy difficulty insanely difficult, the bosses, the characters were really grotesque and well designed, adding to the game's realism. But the main part was that despite the game's consistent choice of combos is what made me give an average overall review for this game. And because of the insane difficulty on all difficulties and cheap death frequency, this resulted in me raging for hours and days to finish this game,and the first time I've struggled so much in a game. Frame and the game camera were VERY problematic!
