By now, you are familiar with the infamous Ninja Gaiden double-dip. Released a little over a year ago on the XBOX360, Ninja Gaiden II comes to the PS3 as Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.

After a lengthy 8 minute install, you begin the game. The wait is made a little better (or worse, depending on your perspective) by a series of comic book stills with cheesy voices and sound effects while it's copying. The improvements are vast and numerous, starting with the graphics. As good as the 360 version was, Sigma 2 is better. Enemies are lavishly detailed, moves are flashy and spectacular with terrific lighting effects, and bosses are absolutely HUGE. Some levels, gameplay mechanics and enemies received small tweaks, and some are completely revamped. I beat the 360 version and now having completed Sigma 2, I can say that playing the PS3 version is almost like a new experience, especially because of the introduction of several new bosses, online play, mission mode, and 3 new playable characters: Momiji, Rachael, and Ayane. There are a total of 17 levels, 2 or 3 of which are totally new (1 level each for the playable characters). There is none of the slowdown that plagued the 360 version, although I noticed that some bodies now vaporize in order to save processing power. Story is pretty much nonsense and a lot less focused than Ninja Gaiden/Sigma, having you jump around the world, so just ignore it.

First of the changes is the oft-mentioned easier difficulty. I played on "Path of the Warrior" ("Path of the Acolyte" is the other starting difficulty) and found it very easy to defeat many of the bosses. You can just brute-force attack many of them and spam with the same moves over and over.

I almost bought an Xbox 360 just to play Ninja Gaiden 2.

Luckily, if you only have a PS3 you can have this not-so-new, but improved game. I'm a huge fan of the series and this one bears the Ninja Gaiden name proudly. You can get an overview of the game in better places then my review, so I'll just get to the point:

- Game looks and plays fantastic. No slowdown, which 360 owners were reporting, but just a minor occurence of screen-tearing, barely noticeable and does not affect the experience.

- Difficulty. This is no easy game, but it's by far the easiest Ninja Gaiden I ever played. Veterans will find their challenge in difficulty settings that will get unlocked after you play through the game the first time. Newcomers to the series will enjoy the action without smashing their controllers when playing on Alcolyte and Warrior modes offered from the beginning. I think it was a smart decision on part of developers.

- Blood and Gore. Many people have complained about the removal of over-the-top blood and gore that Ninja Gaiden 2 on Xbox was famous for. I'd say the level of depiction of violence in Sigma 2 is on par with Sigma 1 - some blood, but nothing like the Xbox version. What I don't understand is why this game is still rated M.

- New Characters. These are actually fun to play with, not just thrown in for the sake of putting them on the game cover.

In short, I recommend this to anyone who likes action games. Previous Ninja Gaiden games were not for everyone due to their crushing difficulty. The only exception to my recommendation: if you already played Ninja Gaiden 2 on Xbox, you may not find that this game is worth the full price. If not - get it, it's one of the best games this year.

After I purchased my PS3 back in 2007, the very first game I purchased was Ninja Gaiden Sigma. At the time I was new to the Ninja Gaiden franchise; I never played it on Nintendo or in any other form prior to this slick, action packed, 1080p re-invention of the classic franchise. What I discovered was a truly challenging, exciting and time-consuming adventure replete with numerous enemies, weapons, attack combos and bosses. I am far from what you'd call a hardcore gamer; I use the PS3 primarily as a media hub for my entertainment system, and less often as a gaming console. However, I found the original so engrossing that I simply had to see it through. By my count, it took me 3 weeks of constant deaths, trial and error, and careful strategic maneuvering to finally overcome the game on normal difficulty. I considered this a major achievement considering my gaming credentials and skill-level, or lack thereof. This was no button-masher that could be beaten in a day like Heavenly Sword or the like, and I liked that aspect of it.
To say I was disappointed when I heard the new NGII was destined to be an exclusive XBox360 release would be an understatement. Needless to say, when I heard about this port to the PS3, I immediately purchased the game. Having just beaten it yesterday, I thought I would compare the two titles as there are some differences worth mentioning to those who have already played the first game.
First of all, this game is substantially easier. It took me about 5 days of fairly time-intensive playing to get through all 17 chapters.
