Ninja Gaiden 2
gotta love the challenge
so here, we have on of the hardest games ever made and also one of my favorites too. ninja gaiden 2 has some of the best and most gory combat i have ever witnessed. ninja gaiden games have had a nack for being hard since the very first one on n64, and this one defiantly delivers. being the good 14 hour length, the challenge is ensured to be plentiful. the lack of weaponry is almost completely unseen due to the 8 brutal melee weapons having a seamlessly endless list of moves. the story however is not as brilliantly conceived as the combat. it is limply put together in a way that the player may not understand or pay attention to. and it may not even be enough to see the player through to the end, but for those of you who are willing to complete this long adventure, i assure you that you will be satisfied to have completed the game at all. this game is in my top 5 favorites and i would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a tough challenge or for those long time fans of the previous ninja gaiden games.
This game is one of the best games u will ever buy. The controls are easy so it will only take u 5 or 10 minutes to get them down. The graphics r amazing. One of the best parts about this game is watching your opponents' heads get cut off when u use the obliteration technique. One of the only problems with this game is the difficulty. The easiest difficulty is like playing any other game on hard. Me and my friend both got this game at the same time and he did it on path of the warrior (normal) and i did it on Path of the acolyte if that's right (easy). We both got to the final boss battle over the weekend and talked to each other over xbox live. It took me about 3 hours and it took him about 5. At that point in the game u just want to take the game and throw it out your window. But the game is still one of the best games ever and if u want a new game now and don't want to wait for christmas to get gears 2, COD world at war or any other game like i have to. Then go pick this game up right now!
LInear Button Smasher
Pro's: KILLER great graphics and some great combination moves. Con's: Linear, can't jump up on stuff much in the environment, slow ladder climbing! Can't SNEAK or PEAK, as soon as you enter a place, you're rushed by hordes of enemies and the game is really fast, and you can't run, you can't hide. No BOW to shoot enemies from a distance (at least in the beginning, so far). Wierd they mixed machine guns with Ninja melee. Hate having to RESTART from the beginning when you get killed and have to do the whole level over again (as punishment?). I think Tom Clancey SplinterCell sneaking and silent killing, or sniping with a bow would have been an improvement to the rush, rush of hordes of enemies, which gets repetitive. Can't STAY in the FIRST PERSON, which would be nice. The camera is too close and anoyingly fighting against you during battles. Its hard to really examine your environment, or enemy. The font on the menu is TINY and BLURRY and hard to read, you have to go up to the screen close, to read it. A good rental.
Awesome, if tough, game
This game is awesome, the graphics are great, the sound is great, the controls are like butter (tight, super precise butter), but this game is also hard. Hard enough to make your blood pressure rise to dangerous levels during gameplay. Hard enough to yell at your TV (I hope my neighbors aren't mad). It's almost hard enough to make you regret buying it until you make it past that spot you were stuck at, at which point you'll say to yourself "wow, that actually wasn't that hard now that I know how to do it". That's how this game is, quite hard until you figure out the specifics of fighting like a ninja (i.e. slash, dodge, slash, dodge, slash, slash, dodge, etc.). The boss battles are large and awesome, and hard. If you like the Ninja Gaiden series of games then you probably already own this game, or you will very soon. If you're new to Ninja Gaiden then you should rent this first because if the difficulty of this game is too much for you to handle then spending $edit on it will not make it any easier for you to stomach.
challenging, but fun.
This game is pretty challenging to say the least. The controls are really fun in the fact that you can perform a variety of different moves. I also love how detailed the weaponery for this game is. They give you plenty of choices; throwing stars, scythe, sword, staff, and hey, who could forget the magic spells too? There's a lot of variety in this game, which makes it that much more fun to slice and dice your opponents. The graphics are stunning and the sound quality is fine. I enjoy the fact that you can choose to put the speech in Japanese especially. But, the game is definitely challenging. I've been dying quite a few times and it's only the third level. The enemies come at you constantly, so you have to be alert or else you're dead. Despite the fact that the enemies can irritate me by being pesky and challenging, the game is decent so far. I find the storyline interesting enough to keep playing it.
A worthy sequel!!!
This game is very similar to the first Ninja Gaiden, but with a couple of improvements. The brand new Easy setting is still really challenging, but you don't die as much and some enemies are changed. The health meter is slightly different as well and I mean, in the whole game not just on easy. The graphics have improved and they scare me-in how good they are. It's like a horror movie, or a Heavy Metal song, come to life. In fact, that is a fitting description of the game, not just graphics. If you liked the first game, you need this one. No avoiding it! If you are a postapocalyptic gaming fan, you way need this. It will blow your mind! My soundtrack: War Pigs/Black Sabbath, Rope/Foo Fighters, Witch Hunt/Rush, Savior/Rise Against, Flames/Europe, Raining Blood/Slayer, Welcome To Paradise/Green Day, All The Madmen/David Bowie, Holy Diver/Dio and, Madhouse/Anthrax.
absolutly fantasic, but with some errors.
The game was fun but very short. It can be beat in about 12 hours easily (wasn’t as hard as the first one). I liked that fact that when you save for the first time at each statue it also heals you. The controls are very good and the response is also great for them. The ut's (strong attacks) are a lot quicker this time around. The story isn't the greatest but it’s really not that bad. you can beat most of the end bosses without using health items the ones I had to use them on were the mid bosses (in the subway and the wyrm). Then we come to the errors and glitches. The only error in the game I’ve seen was that they called Ryu's dad Joe Hyabusa when in all the others his name was ken. But there is one glitch I caught. When u fight the wyrm boss in the tunnels if you are part way in a room and let loose an ut, the wyrm will get stuck in the wall and won’t be able to beat the rest of the level. All in all I rate the game 9 out of 10. Hope you all enjoy...
The story of Ninja Gaiden 2 is pretty simple: The Four Greater Fiends plan to destroy humanity and reshape the world.Of course, Ryu Hayabusa has to stop them. To do so, he must travel the world, vanquishing the Fiends and their minions. In every level, it is clear where in the world you are but, there's something chilling about this game. The reshaped world seems very...realistic. If you've played the first Ninja Gaiden, the controls are basically the same. The graphics are much clearer. There is an easy mode, though it's still pretty difficult...in my opinion, anyway. I think there are more weapons in this game than there were, in the first game but, I'm not sure. You can pretty much just use the Dragon Sword, without switching melee weapons-though I would recommend getting all the weapons. You get an Achievement for beating the game using only one melee weapon. If you can do this using the Falcon's Talons, you earned it! There are a few flaws in this game, such as the bad controller response, during underwater movement but, overall this is an awesome game. It's a must-buy if you liked the original or, if you're just looking for a fun action game!
Very nice, but some things are...
Well, the graphics for one, I wasn't surprised. If you played Sigma for the PS3, they are the same. The new arsenal of weaponry is fully there along with completely tearing off body parts, enabling you to do a finisher to them. The added difficulty is better than ever, and now you even get different colored costumes and video taping. The only problem my buddy and I seemed to find wrong, there was framerate issues. Too many people on screen would completely stop your game, and take about 2 seconds to load, WITHOUT the "loading" pop up. The second was, if you played your 360 for a period of time, the whole game seemed to slow down. Other than that the storyline is beautiful, and the camera angles? Get used to it people, they fixed it using the right bumper, you should be used to it from the first Ninja Gaiden. I love how you can upload your video's too and they kept mostly the moves from the first Ninja Gaiden, so no need to button mash guys!
Really fun but mad hard.
When I first played this game it was fun but after a few missions it got harder and harder like when u have to beat Genshin in like the first or second mission he was really hard and when u beat Volf it took me at least 3 to 5/6 days to beat him. But if u r a master at this game then u won't have that many problems with the game since i'm only a beginner it's really hard I didn't even beat the game yet.
