5.0 out of 5 stars Are you hardcore? 10 Aug 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Fancy yourself as a big time games player? Good. Because nothing can prepare you for the sheer lunacy on offer in Ninja Gaiden 2. Anyone who thought the first game was hard had better not even bother with this. But like anything else, practice makes perfect.

1 hour in: Getting hammered! From the very first screen, you're surrounded by enemies. And they just keep coming. Armed with nothing but your trusty sword, you'll need lightning fast reflexes just to keep the enemies at bay, let alone progress through the level. And then there are the bosses. Christ! Expect to be hurling significantly colourful language at the screen.

3 hours in: Still getting hammered! Will the pain never end? By this point you'll have picked up about three different weapons, killed some 10,000 enemies, and lost roughly 10 years of your lifespan. But it soon becomes apparent that you must utilise every one of Ryu's weapons, use counter attacks with perfect timing and use the environment to your advantage. Hmmm, maybe it's not as tough as we thought.

8 hours in: This is more like it! If you haven't sold the game in utter disgust, you'll be having the time of your life. By this point all weapons will be maxed out, Ryu's health will have rocketed up and you'll be leaving absolute carnage in your wake. And that's the point. Hammer the buttons mindlessly and you'll get nowhere. But learn and utilise every one of Ryu's combo's, and you'll soon become unstoppable. by this point, you'll be eating coffin nails for breakfast. Just wait for the fight between Ryu and about a thousand ninja's on a never ending stairway and you'll realise that Ninja Gaiden 2 is one of the X-Box's best titles.

12 hours in: Getting hammered? HAMMER THIS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Violently Beautiful , but Insanely Difficult !!! 26 Jan 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is not for the weak of heart !
Not only because it contains bucket loads of gore mind you , but because this game will probably reduce you to tears for it's insane difficulty.

Even normal mode might as well be called very hard .... lol ... it's called Ninja Gaiden ... maybe it's because you need to be a ninja in real life to have the reflexes to cope and dodge all the randomly crazy attacks thrown at you.

This is a hardcore gamers game with old School difficulty and modern looks, which is quite a rare thing to find nowadays.

The game is still very fun despite it's hard difficulty , this is a great action game and beautiful in motion ( Although it does slowdown at certain peaks ).
The gore done in such stylish way despite the violent nature of the game , it doesn't seem like vulgar brutality. Killing hundreds has never been so beautiful ... lol ...

This game also has a great variety of of weapons and great spells , so there are many ways to play this game and deal death and destruction. This leads to great replayability if you can stomach the difficulty.

But a great game to blow off some steam hacking after a hard days work , load this game up and enjoy hacking armies of enemies to bloody bits.

The only major gripe with this game mainly include poor camera control which makes thinks awkward at times .. and character control isn't as tight as you could hope for .. but those small imperfections can easily be over looked , other than that this is great stuff and you'll still be having decent fun.

This is probably the best action packed ninja game too ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the naysayers..... 2 Aug 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I can't believe that reviews appearing here describe the graphics of NG2 as 'bland','average','barren', etc. Both fore and backgrounds are wonderfully rendered, and although the visuals of the original were great, NG2 shows great improvement. My only gripe is sore fingers; fighting off wave after wave of evil scum is tiring. This is an amazing game. Don't pay any attention to the moaners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harkening back to the beat 'em ups of old... 9 Jun 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ninja Gaiden II has put a smile on my face more times than I can count this past week, why? Because it's made up of all the things that used to make scrolling beat `em ups great, and here are few of those things:

- Great variation of levels and locals; from the rain drenched streets of New York to Womb/Ribcage like structures filled knee deep with blood, to Ancient Ninja Clan Villages and steaming jungles. All the levels look stunning, and all feel different enough to make progression exciting rather than just another uninspired arena to kick some heads off in. Also the levels are very well set up and full of little secrets and points of interest.

- It's not ridiculously hard but challenging enough to make you want to perform some manoeuvres of your own at the TV.

- It's a good length with plenty of replay value through achievements and rankings and such like.

- The weapons are awesome to behold, in the way they look, level up and obliterate some enemy skull meat. Each has its own massive set of moves and cool and crunchy finishers for disposing of those pesky demons and ninjas. Also all the moves feel visceral and satisfying to perform and make you want to emmerse yourself in the hugely in-depth fighting system.

If I had to say anything was wrong with the game it's that the story is not worth a jot, but that is just a tiny discrepancy as most video games of this nature that do attempt a story line just end up filling it with typical contrived, anime, kitsch which quite I'd rather skip than have to put up with at all. So, all in all an absolute stormer that you'll definitely get more than your fair share of kicks out of (bad pun fully intended).

5.0 out of 5 stars Concentrate or die
Ahh the old days. Take a trip back to the 90s but in 3 dimensions. Not as hardcore (or as good) as Ninja Gaiden Black, but a full on challenge from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch game that delivers on quality and challenge
Easily one of the best purchases I've made on Amazon - arrived on time, but my only issue was the box and manual being in Spanish(?), though the game was not.
