Are you hardcore?,
This review is from: Ninja Gaiden 2 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)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.
