Ninja Gaiden Sigma PLUS
This game looks really good and being that its going to be my first real Ninja Gaiden game, I'm kinda excited. It;s Sigma with all the add-ons and features with special controls just for the Vita. I think it's pretty nice aside from the gyroscope feature (never really liked it on the 3DS) thats used to aim the bow. I hope you can change to using an analog instead for that and I'm not really sure if using the back touch screen during a battle will be easy and not frusterating, if you do need to do so, but i like the idea. Anyway, with Sigma PLUS you get a few added missions, a Ninja Trials (Challenge) Mode, a new Hero mode for beginners allowing for unlimited Ninpo in certain situations and assistance from the game, and just a glorious re-issue of the game, in my honest opinion. I'm definitely going to pick it up and I suggest you should too but if you already bought this game twice already, you dont necessarily need to. But hey, destroying hordes of shinobi while on the bus, or during a car trip, or even sitting at Starbucks, sounds very appealing, doesnt it?
Ryu on the go
Looking forward to this launch title. I own ninja gaiden sigma on my ps3 and it gave me quite a bit of run for my money. (especially the church boss fight) This game is a remake of sigma. You should get around 8-9 hours of playtime and maybe even longer if yo uare completely new to this type of game and if you are well then i recommend you play through the game on Ninja Dog. Ninja Dog is basically the ultimate noob setting that basically holds your hand through the entire game. Enemies are weaker, shop items are cheaper, etc. There are a set of challenges called the Ninja Challenges which are a series of increasing challenges. One of the challenges has you fighting against Doku, and the 2 greater fiends all at once. This game will test your pateince because you will die sooner or later. There are 2 stories in the game. Both Ryu's and Rachel's. Rachel is a very slow heavy attacker and her story is ok at best. Ryu is just bad *** and can use a wide array of weapons that range from the dragon sword to this giant hammer. I highly recommend anybody who is picking up the vita to pick up this game while you are at it.
this is a game for hardcore gamers who want a challange if u want a simple easy story mode this game isn't for you this game is for people who want to spend long time on story mode not less then 24 hours then sell it
A Great Steal For $20
If you have never played a Ninja Gaiden game in the past and your a owner of a Ps Vita, then Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is a great pick-up. Starting off with the gameplay. You take control of Ryu Hayabusa, a fierce and powerful ninja on his quest for vengeance. Ryu is capable of using various weapons such as swords, arrows&bows, war hammers, etc, as well as Ninpo (Ultimate techniques). Enemies are no push overs and require good timing and skills to defeat thus providing a challenging game. As far as the graphics goes, Sigma Plus looks gorgeous. It looks and feels exactly like the original PS3 Sigma. The sound is satisfying enough but not really the best you've heard. Overall, the game is great and at a low price now I definitely recommend it to Ps Vita Owners. The only reason I would say not to pick this great game up is if you own a PS3 cause the original version of the game is much better and also cheaper.
great port of a great port of a great game
Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is a very well made port of a port of a great game released on the original xbox under the name Ninja Gaiden Black. I have only played the first 2 levels so far and I am really enjoying the graphicxs and sound. The gameplay can be very fast paced at time and slow paced at other times. The best part of this version of the game is the trophies.
This hands down is the best vita title out right now. I own pretty much all launch titles except dynasty warriors and this is the most challenging and fun game out as of right now for the vita.
Great port of a classic
This game is hard. Very hard. I've played through the story 4 times already and can't seem to bring myself to trade it in though. There's just something incredibly awesome about flipping around and slicing through enemies and taking on hordes of bad guys with some sweet upgradeable weapons. The missions with the female character are annoying, but makes going back to Ryu that much better. The Ninja Trails are very difficult even on the easiest of settings, but are nice and quick for the most part, for those who use the vita in between classes or while waiting for the bus. I would recommend this game only for hardcore gamers that have quick reflexes and want a challenge. The sound and graphics are nicely done for the Vita, and the characters, enemies, and environments look great on the OLED screen. Definitely recommend, if you are up to the challenge.
Good port of an old game...
This is another great port that would be worth the price if it were $10. It has all of the NG difficulty and frustration you've come to expect. It also has the same clumsy camera problems that were in the original game and still hinder the experience. If you've already played through this one, skip it. There is nothing new here except a forced touch screen control for shooting weapons like a bow and arrow.
Just like the old NGs, this one is still extremely difficult. It was ported well, and the graphics are actually very good for a port. i have had no trouble with the cameras so far (surprising) but the touch integration sucks and you cannot turn it off (makes the end of lvl 11 extremely difficult). overall though, great game i was very happy with it.
best action game on vita
ninja gaiden sigma on the ps3 was good but to play it on the go is amazing the graphics are really good and the gameplay has a nice flow to it so i would recommend this for people who love handheld action adventure games on the go
