Ninja Gaiden Sigma (Ps3) Review
Hi folks Seamus here, leprechaun and guest blogger on the Flaccid Gamer. Well it appears that Team Ninja have done the business, not that there was much to do given that Ninja Gaiden Sigma is a a remake of Ninja Gaiden Black, a game which in itself had the critics standing on their seats.
The remake brings with it new moves, actions, and weapons for Hayabusa. Also added is a new playable character Rachel, one of the series' heroines, and when using her, you'll get to experience the storyline from her perspective. But there is a darkside to Rachel the demon hunter:
She is playable in only 3 of her own chapters and 11 missions in Mission Mode
For weapons, she can only use her warhammer.
For projectiles, she can only use her whip, the Peluda Tail.
And Whereas Ryu unlocks costumes, she can obtain 7 hairstyles (besides her default hairstyle).
Bummer I'm sure you'll agree, unless of course your into hair. Contrary to the "more complete" version promotion, they in fact took some stuff out, yup kid you not, take a wander over to Wikipedia for the full list of things that are missing.
Scoring 89% from 18 reviews on Metacritic.com
A strong case can be made for Ninja Gaiden being the greatest action game ever made.
The same meal you've eaten before -- albeit with lots of garnish
The best version released so far one of the most intense experiences on a console.
An immersive action romp full of original challenges, incredible environments and interesting characters.
Punishingly, mercilessly, remorselessly ferocious. You will never, ever finish it. Until you learn to block. Genuinely new content doesn't exactly abound
