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.

I'v just bought two games; Meass Effect and Ninja Gaiden 2. I am blown away by both, but Ninja Gaiden is just increadible. I am more shocked by the people that don't rate it high. Yes, this is a hard game. Battle through! One of my fave xbox games. Buy it now.

Love this game,great weapon selection and upgrades plus side weapons.Annoying bosses that will leave you wanting to throw your controller through the television.Camera angles can be a little annoying at times but you'll get used to adjusting those yourself.Mega hit combos and great levels.This is a classic ninja game!!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played, and been totally blown away by, a demo of Ninja Gaiden III at a games show earlier this year, the logical step was clearly to purchase its predecessor for the Xbox 360, and acquaint myself with the series. To better understand it, and perhaps even outwit it.

A fair number of hours in, and I'm in no danger of outwitting anything the game has to throw at me. After a couple of levels on the lower difficulty setting, I made the questionable decision of starting a new game on the more difficult setting: I'm still not entirely sure why I did this, but in spite of the countless 'Game Over' screens and silent moments of fist-clenching frustration, I'm absolutely glad that I did.

It's a great game! I've played my fair share of titles on the 360, and few other titles will make you feel as much of a bad-ass. Yes, the approach is almsot entirely linear, the graphics occasionally show their age, it uses an outdated system of triggers to spawn enemies, the cut-scenes are laughable, there's a silly amount of blood, the camera angles are infuriating, the save points are sometimes a bit sparse, and I've even had the game crash on me after a particularly gruelling 'Test of Valor' (a little aside from the game, designed purely to push your skills, and sanity, even closer to their respective limits, by hurling wave upon wave of enemies at our poor protagonist); all these things end up feeling like quirks, rather than flaws. It's tricky to explain this without sounding like I ought to be sectioned, but trust me: once you've started playing, you'll be willing to forgive the game its many .. idiosyncrasies.
