Ninja Gaiden Sigma ReviewPosted on 2007-07-11 14:29:14 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Still, if Ninja Gaiden Sigma can be a rather dated and adolescent experience at times, it’s hard to resist its gung-ho spirit or the constant, heady rush of its stylised violence. For every minute that you’re annoyed by the dated structure or frustrated by its ludicrous demands on your skill and stamina, there are ten when the action is exhilarating and the atmosphere totally immersive. For all its revamped looks it’s not a game that belongs in this generation; it’s too far away from the freeform, cinematic worlds we now hold dear. Yet it proves that when you add gorgeous graphics to the values of an older generation – breakneck pacing and a meaty challenge – the results can still hold water today.
