It's grown on me, actually. It's like a giant target painted on my next OT victim.

Play Magazine give it 82%. Not sure if it will appear online later though.

I've just been on their website and the reviews aren't there yet. It should appear here though. Smile

i start agreeing more and more w/ the reviewers now.
before those lacking stuffs hasn't been shown, i thought NGS2 deserve a score of 9 or above, but now, my best score for NGS2 turn out to be 8/10.
i am gonna review the game and give it an 8/10. not bad, not prefect.

It gets that score but they basically rant about blood and difficulty.

They don't care about weapons or whatever. Thats why I don't pay too much attention to reviewers. Unless its by someone you know wouldn't lie it isn't worth it. I disagree with a lot of these reviews.

You know if I was to submit a review right now I would not shut up about the removal of the shurikens. They had no right to take them out.

But I remember to keep calm and wait and see. I have no idea what the intentions of removing them were or if it was to give the game a new angle or what they were thinking. But I might find out that there could be some sort of new challenges they want to persuade us to try with new weapons or something.

Until I have played the game I think it was a silly idea but not a hype crushing one. I think automatically saying Sigma is better is defo wrong because Ayane plays much better than Rachel.

Here's a pretty good mini-review I read on gamefaqs. The guy writes book reviews for a living and is a NG fan to boot:

Just finished the game. As a vet from NG2, I have to say that this game has been an emotional rollercoaster. So much good, so much bad. I'll try to be brief.

Pros:
- The graphics are fantastic and definitely a notch above the original version
- Virtually no slowdown save a few "now loading" pauses and an intense battle against several armored suits.
- Rachel, Ayane, and Momiji are excellent additions. This is the biggest pro; each character is unique and fun. Their stages and bosses are excellent.
- The new bosses are mostly good too. Wasn't crazy about the Buddha, but the Statue of Liberty, Marbus, Obaba, and the Tengus were all great.
- Emma's Fang pwns.
- The team missions are varried and excellent. I only did online once and it wasn't laggy though I have heard otherwise.
- If Kasumi actually IS the surprise, I'll be pleasantly surprised. I would prefer Hayate, but Team Ninja is trying to stress Ryu's pimp status. Genshin and Joe likely would have been palette swaps of Ryu anyway.

Cons:
- Difficulty has been nerfed. Warrior mode feels like acolyte now. Vets will notice it in a thousand places; where there used to be multiple Raisetsu now there are imps, bosses are dumber, fewer IS ninjas, items and ninpo are infinitely spammable. It's just...argh. They didn't dumb down the first Sigma nearly as much. If there really is a difficulty above MN, then I'll be pretty satisfied, but still...
- No IS and no windmill for Ryu! Are you KIDDING me?
- No speargun...wait, I don't care. Tapping X to run on water is annoying though.
- Can't unequip the bow. Very minor, but still.
- Weapon upgrades don't cost money and can only be done once per blue statue. I couldn't even fully upgrade everything because of this, AND it nerfs the difficulty. This was one of the dumbest design choices they made.
- No new game + and no TOV. Again, why are you cutting content if you're trying to make a definitive version of a game?

Needed DLC ASAP:

- Single character missions! For the ladies too, thanks.
- Windmill and IS for Ryu.
- An option to go back to the original weapon upgrade system, 'cause this one is balls.
- Offline 2 player.
- More sexy costumes for the ladies. Giggity giggity.
- Playable Kasumi...and Sonia, Genshin, Joe, and even that little kid ninja that Momiji saves.
- Vs mode, while we're at it.

Final Verdict: What can I say? It's Ninja Gaiden. If you are a series fan and have PS3, you'd be an imbecile not to get it. There's so much new and good content that you'll forgive a lot of the design missteps. Much of what is wrong is fixable, so let's hope they listen to the fanbase. The changes in enemy locations and bosses suggest that they DO care somewhat about what the players think.

I'm sure more hardcore players will have far more complaints than me. It's frustrating since, Like the first Sigma, this could have easily been a definitive and superior version of the game. While I love Sigma 2, I know I can't sell my 360 version. That was the real test for me.

It sounds like apart from these stupid edits the game does what it promised. I just hope one day Hayashi's team learns to stop cutting things they think are useless when they aren't.

He did the same with Sigma. Sad

a VS mode looool. I think they never fought a ryu clone and the perma invincible dash would kill the whole "VS multiplayer" gameplay.

NG is designed to be a singleplayer game where you fight A.I. enemies, not human players. Team Ninja will never change the gameplay in such huge aspects just because someone wants a VS mode. Really, that's ridiculous.
Sorry for being harsh but that is exactly one good example for "some fans and their crazy wishes".

C'mon man, you know what's good for your game. Stop being idiotic.

Yeah, that aspect was pretty WTF. I mean, I can see it working if they cut like half of the abilities down. I'd rather play Soul Calibur with a Ryu Hayabusa character tho.

Very Happy
Have you played it yet?

no, but the demo.

also, why i give it an 8/10 because of these flaws.

    +gameplay is still the same
    +graphic upgrade
    +Momiji/Ayane/Rachel are back in full force
    +co-op online (i just wish it has 2 players offline split-screen as well, as well as a versus mode online)
    +new bosses
    +new enemies
    +new weapon (Enma Fang)
    +new and returning costumes

    -screen tearing minus .5
    -gore tone down so minus .5
    -remove IS and Windmill Shuriken so minus .5
    -projectile UT removale minus another .5


so u see, its minus 2 out of 10, so that's 8/10.

So you reviewed a DEMO and based off what you have heard online you add THAT to the DEMO you played and you give it points?
Some people Confused

We're all just righting reviews, eh?

I'd give it a -6000/10 for no successive play.
But I am writing a review.

I might do that as well. But don't you think -6010 is a bit harsh chaos Razz
