A great game which we have seen several times before, but is still a great action game, as fun as the first game. If you already had the game in another platform you won't find anything really new or different here, but if not this is a very recommended acquisition.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is the portable version of the HD remake of the upgraded port of an old 2004 game. It sounds crazy, isn't it? After so many years Ninja Gaiden is still great, anyway. If you've never played the previous versions, you should buy this one with no regrets.
a highly underrated game, suitable for hardcore action gamers.
How ps vita many games have this degree of responsiveness, and AI. The learning curve is gradual then steep then the mastery becomes enjoyable. Graphics are smooth and fast and the sword slashing becomes a course of mini beatemups. levels are well designed and the userr can explore and interact well.
For me it beats all the swathe of repetitive and commercial childish cartoon like games for handhelds. This game is one of the few games that can appeal to adults.
If you have played this on the xbox, i can understand how this vita game adds little. But if you haven't played a ninja gaiden title, you will find this hard to put down.
Yes, it´s the fourth iteration already of Ninja Gaiden and yes, it´s still a near perfect game that look and controls great in this Vita version. The novelties like the Hero mode add nothing to the winning formula, but it´s still a fantastic Beat'em up.
Say what you will about the camera or the silly story, but the combat in Sigma Plus is unmatched. There's a fantastic action game under all of the name changes and feature additions that have been tacked on over the years. Aside from the non-optional rear-tap Ninpo addition, the new Vita features aren't even worth messing with.
When you get down to it, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is the same game that was released a few years back, and if you need that on the go, this is the best way to fill the need. Or, if you need something pretty that can beat you up (like a hot MMA fighter), this will do the trick.
You've probably played this game before. If you haven't, you probably don't want to, and this isn't the best version to start on. It doesn't add enough for old fans or do enough to reel in new players.
Never played any ninja gaiden games before this but I'm definitely interested in the series now. I thought this was a lot of fun and lasted a pretty good while too. To be honest the same night I beat it I was already thinking about starting a new game. Just trying to debate whether to play hard mode or not, I feel like I had enough difficulty on normal. I think part of what makes this game so enjoyable is that the enemies don't just blindly run for you and let you attack them. They actually fight back and defend themselves forcing you to have to outsmart them as well. It makes the combat more involved instead of just button mashing. Not only that but it feels like there's a good balance between exploration and combat so the game never really gets stale all the way to the end. The soundtrack is really good, the music caught my attention many times throughout the game.
Well, I have to say that Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is the only game that satisfied me in all vita games from the day PS vita released until now. I never played any Ninja Gaiden games before and this Vita game is my first try in the series. The graphic in this game may not be the same level as the PS3 version, but all characters and elements looks sharp and beautiful with vita's OLED screen. The Gameplay in this game is very awesome, fast and fluid. You can combine lots of different actions together to finish everyone who stands in front of Ryu. The contents in this game are abundant with the story mode and lots of Challenge mode. You don't worry about finishing this game in several hour and beginning to feel bored. Though this game is a little hard for beginners, it's still a must play for those who didn't play Ninja Gaiden before and also love playing action games.
I've played through two versions of this on the xbox and its follow up on the 360. This version has some issues that were not in the original. It pauses to load in the middle of fights which did not happen before and should not happen now, fighting the enemies is hard enough... fighting the loading as well is a real **** This also causes enemies to re-spawn as soon as they are defeated in areas where their spawn point is close to a loading point... The new touch additions are a pain in the ass rather than an enhancement, its easy to touch the screen by accident as the left thumb-stick is too close to it resulting in a first person view when you least want it. The right thumb-stick also hinders the buttons above it so I never used the guillotine throw during this play-through. They may have removed a save point prior to the fight with Alma in the cathedral, I could be wrong but I don't remember such an awful trek back to this difficult fight when I lost in the older versions? There are now more life bar boosts than the game will allow the use of which is poor... The final chapter has always been frustrating but I thought when you got out of the volcano in the original that, should you lose the final fight, it would restart you at the fight rather than at the bottom of the bloody volcano, again I might be wrong. Either way you would not play through this chapter if it were near the start, you would turn the game off and trade it in for as little as a Â£1. To top this off once completed it just throws you back to the title screen after the credits have rolled with no final save, so you can't go through it again with all your gear etc... WHY!!! A very bad port **** game, a bit of modern TLC could have made a big difference... instead the conversion team who got hold of this have taken a butchers cleaver to it and hacked it up. Probably the same guys who made Ninja Gaiden 3!
Why is this game so bloody difficult?! The game is annoyingly difficult, the game play becomes tedious fast and storyline is mediocre. Regret buying this game instead of GTA:VCS on PSN. Screw you IGN for deceiving me. Avoid this game like the Egyptians avoided the Hebrews after the 10 plagues hit them.
