Great ninja action game

on 9/25/2007

The game throws you right into the action from the beginning. It may be a little difficult if you have never played an action game before. The artistic style and graphics look gorgeous on this game for the PS3 running at 1080p. If you haven't already played previous versions of this game on other platforms, it is worth playing on the PS3 for the extra gameplay features that they added. Read More

Product Overview

As Ryu Hayabusa you are out to seek revenge after your clan is massacred by the Vigor Empire. Realistic battle actions and acrobatic ninja moves are at your finger-tips. You play with only your wits, your ninja skills, and your deadly sword. Slice down opponents in the Vigor Empire as you attempt to beat the Holy Emperor and reclaim the magic sword "Ryuken".

Bringing the classic to the PlayStation 3, Ninja Gaiden Sigma is a more "complete version" of the Xbox Team Ninja title, with new moves, actions, and weapons for Hayabusa. Also added is a new playable character -- Rachel, one of the series' heroines, will be playable, and when using her, you'll get to experience the storyline from her perspective (with new cutscenes, attack moves and more).

Review One of the best games for Xbox is appearing in full form on PlayStation 3! Be assured, Sigma is the definitive version of Ninja Gaiden...Whenever Ninja Gaiden is talked about among reviewers, it's most often touted as one of the greatest games of all time; a modern classic. While I don't think Ninja Gaiden as brilliant as it's considered, and I still prefer God of War for my action gaming, it can most definitely be said that I have thoroughly enjoyed and been impressed by Ninja Gaiden Sigma...Sigma is an odd animal: it is neither an expansion pack, nor is it a straight port. Rather, it's more of an updating of the game. The visuals are obviously the first new content you'll notice and yes, they are breathtaking (most of the time); particularly the animations are entirely stunning. Sigma's core gameplay has a poetic fluidity that almost demands the new visuals and animations. In fact, I can hardly fathom going back and playing the Xbox original...I think this is pretty much a no-brainer if you own a PS3. If you haven't played the game yet, then all the better. This is the best version by a landslide. Yes, there are problems with the game, and yes, they don't get talked about enough, but the core gameplay is just so amazing, you might not even notice them.
