Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The old NES Ninja Gaiden games might be little known in Europe (where they were called Shadow Warriors) but on the Xbox the series found itself a whole new generation of fans with its stunning graphics and intense combat. This is a remake of the Xbox game Ninja Gaiden Black – itself a re-release of the original game with extra content. It’s essentially a third person fighter not too dissimilar to Devil May Cry, although the combat is more technical than Capcom’s freeform style, with every enemy putting up a considerable fight. Indeed without significant amounts of practise the game seems almost remorselessly difficult, even on the disparagingly named "ninja dog" mode.

The major addition in terms of content here is a new player character called Rachel, who trades the graceful combat of ninja Ryu Hayabusa for a gigantic hammer. In the end though the most import changes to the game are the apparently endless series of small refinements to each stage, with almost every element of a level tweaked, from different power-ups to new bosses, enemies and even weapons. Naturally the graphics have also been improved and despite the Xbox origins this is one of the best looking games on the PS3.

Despite the difficulty this features some of the most graceful combat seen in any game, against a surreal array of different backdrops and enemies. Once you start to master the controls, and realise that almost every attack can be blocked or dodged relatively easily, the whole experience becomes almost balletic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredile game, if a tough one to get through. 11 July 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I can safely say that games like Ninja Gaiden Sigma are why I went with the PS3. The graphics (to start with) are mouth-wateringly awesome. I've yet to see so much as a single jagged edge where there shouldn't be one. (Yes, I probably could if I stared close enough, but it's more than smooth and clean enough to avoid any bad words from me.) The combat system is both fluid and easy to pickup - swift attacks, heavy attacks, charge attacks, long-range attacks (including the staple of any ninja; unlimited supply of shuriken), the ability to roll out of the way of any attack swiftly as well as run up, over and off walls to avoid enemies and come slamming back down ontop of them... all make it so incredible to play.
Yes, it's tough. This isn't Dynasty Warriors you're playing here, so carving through a horde of 50 or so enemies isn't a minor nuisance - it's the challenge it should rightfully be. With some care, use of all the skills you're given access to (take note: many enemies are stunned for a brief moment by a swift application of some shuriken) and a measure of skill, the rewards are just that - rewarding. (It also helps to remember that your character is a Ninja - he's meant to be a quick, skillful killer, not a brutal barbarian fighter, killing his foes before he gets hit, so remember that block button and counter-attacks!)
For those who like to really play games, and not just waltz through everything on the first attempt with no challenge, this is a definite one to buy. And, as others have said - if you can, hook this baby into an HDTV and get ready to drool on your Sixaxis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ninja Gaiden Sigma: review 16 July 2007
By Prof
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Many games that have been released for the PS3 have not been up to "next gen" standards however Ninja Gaiden Sigma is a whole different story. The graphics are great for a game released only 4-5 months after the PS3 came out. The characters are original and well designed, they do have background to them too but is explained in a vague sort of way. The gameplay in Ninja Gaiden Sigma is second to none, with every wall, building and object being interactable. Translation? You can run along, jump off almost everything in the game. Although special combos that you can unlock are limited in this game, you can improvise and make your own moves by stringing wall jumps, runs and various attacks together. There are many weapons and items which you pick up as you continue your journey. The weapons vary in stats but can only be up-graded slightly making them a bit boring. There are 19 chapters in all, 2 difficulty levels and a mission mode which you can unlock after completing the story campaign making Ninja Gaiden a hard and long game to complete 100%. Unfortunately the storyline in this game is quite random and hard to follow. You have to read quite a bit as well as watching the cutscenes carefully. At the end of the game you realise that the story is less complex than you first think so my advice; enjoy the fighting and don't worry about your ultimate objective. In my opinion you should get this game if you like a bit of everything. Do not get Ninja Gaiden Sigma if you prefer epic storylines to in-game things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ninja! 29 July 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's not a stealth game. It's across between Devil May Cry 3, Onimusha and Shinobi (PS2). So if you were expecting Tenchu, you thought wrong. The plot is not amazing - it's deadly thin, actually - but then again it doesn't need to be because this game is all about the action. Action which the game delivers by the bucket load across 19 beautifully detailed levels, lots of enemies who all want your blood and the main character - Ryu- has a fair range of ninja tools, weapons and techniques at his disposal. So it's all good. Wouldn't mind another few cool cut scenes, but that's just my taste. Other people prefer to get stuck in.
The game is difficult; the levels are vast and the enemies are not push overs, so it's bound to take dedicated players at least a couple of weeks to complete the game once.
The controls can be annoying since they are dependant largely on what angle the camera is at. This can lead to players plummeting to thier death over a jump that could and should have been straight forward. It can also lead to players being ambushed by powerful enemies that they never realised were there.
I also think the second character, Rachel, is a complete waste of time as a character. She's not as cool as Ryu and only ever gets one weapon and one spell.
Although I only have two complaints about this game as it is, if they did make a second one or any addition to this series I would like to see:

At least three playable characters with an intertwined story.
A wide range of weapons, tool and techniques that could be more easily customised by the players themselves.
And that's it. Buy this game and enjoy playing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Next Gen Action Game Available. 6 July 2007
By uHuRu85
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like it says on the back of the box: "The reason you bought a PS3" and that phrase could not be truer. (at least im my case)
The original Devil May Cry on PS2 and Ninja Gaiden on Xbox revolutionized the action adventure genre. The original was great, then Black was even better, and now with Sigma it has reached perfection. I still have the other two but I doubt I will be going back to them since the PS3 is by far the best (granted the others were on last gen hardware). If you have never played the xbox versions and own a PS3, you NEED to own this game. Once your reflexes get up to par, the game plays extraordinarily well, the fluent mechanics of the fighting system are unmatched by any other game. The revamped graphics and level design make this iteration an improvement over the last, and with the core action packed battles still intact, the addition of new weapons, characters, and quick item menus make this game a must have for any Gaiden fan.

Just to sum up my feelings for this game: This is one of the reasons I bought a PlayStation 3.
