Ninja Gaiden Black is the PERFECT game for the genre as a whole.

Ninja Gaiden II>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Sigma 2

There are lots of reasons why Sigma 2 sucks, I'm sure others can say more:

1) Forced to play as the women characters, with a limited moveset, which can get annoying seeing how you hardly use them and only for those chapters

2) Blood is gone

3) Throws are OHKO

4) Enemy count is lowered

5) The staircase battle in CH 11 in NG2 which was fun fighting 100 ninjas, turns to crap in Sigma 2


The only thing I can think of that Sigma 2 did right was that it took out the double Armadillo boss battle and replaced it with Marbus.


sigma 1 and 2 are awesome.. but I could see how some may prefer ng2


*spits out coffee*

Did velvet_hammer just consider someone else's point of view?!

Razors edge over NG3 is a no brainer. Because NG3 is absolute turd and RE is polished turd.

However the others is debatable. hardcore NG fans will pick original but some people may prefer more content, Sigma 2 is actually a far more polished game than NG2 and while it doesn't have gore it runs better and isn't as glitchy.

Black and Sigma 1 is is a toss up some people prefer black some people prefer sigma with it's enhanced visuals. I prefer black because of the xbox controller.

well it's an enhanced and better version of a terrible game. I haven't played it fully but from what i've played of the demo and wii u version it's better but it's not an entirely new game.

Oh man, I could go on and on for pages but suffice it to say that your best bet is to go with Ninja Gaiden Black. And this isn't a platform thing. I own a PS3 and a Vita as well, and if you check my PSN account all you'll see on there so far is progress in Ninja Gaiden Sigma (PS3), Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus (Vita) and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus (Vita). I'm honestly telling you that Ninja Gaiden Black is the best designed, best balanced and most fun of the modern Ninja Gaiden games.

Ninja Gaiden II was pretty incredible in ways but also an unfinished and not very well balanced mess of a game. Sigma 2 fixed some things but completely dropped the ball in many ways, with big omissions, terrible additions, changes to the design and technical issues. However, NGII on the 360 was itself not free of technical issues and it featured some ridiculously bad levels/bosses/enemies, some of which were improved/removed in Sigma 2 (adding giant Buddah fights was not one of those great changes).

Btw, I say Black over the 2004 original because Black made some serious improvements to the formula and saw additions like Master Ninja mode and Mission Mode. (plus some fantastic surprises in the harder difficulties and some great balancing).

I can really get specific if you want but seriously, just get Black.
