Let’s play Ninja Gaiden Sigma and we show you the first minutes of this opus released on PlayStation 3 but born on the first Xbox.
There were times when Capcom would hit Devil May Cry. The game video with Dante laid the foundation of a kind that is now enjoyed by many.
With the launch of the Xbox came Ninja Gaiden, a 3D action video game from Tomonobu Itagaki. To promote Ryu Hayabusa’s video game on Xbox, there was no shortage of disqualifications and comparisons between its creator and Devil May Cry.
Over time it was possible to enjoy (or in my case suffer) this Ninja Gaiden on a Sony game console . Ninja Gaiden Sigma, a video game that we have within Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, is the first 3D video game in the saga but with more vitamins, with more phases, weapons and a secondary character.
I’ve said it in the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection review about three times and I’ll say it now too. Ninja Gaiden Sigma is a video game that I find horrible. For many it’s a classic of the genre, but for me it’s one of the worst Hack & Slash I’ve ever played. It’s kind of a game that wants to cover a lot of things and does everything fairly regularly or poorly.
A disaster with katana
The worst part of Ninja Gaiden is the action. How come an action video game has few cutscenes that show off the character’s gallantry? And Ryu Hayabusa? We take a Ninja and it’s still cool, but he’s the most boring guy in the video game scene. Sigma also gives us the opportunity to play with Rachel and it turns out that she is worse than Ryu in everything.
The game is difficult and that is not a negative thing. The problem comes when you have a Hack & Slash in which the cameras are a disaster and the combat system is fairly regular. If in an H&S you can’t take advantage of the wrong combos, let’s go.
But what horrifies me the most about this video game is the mishmash of settings and enemies that we have. It’s as if they put things in putting them, like being in a city, going into its depths and finding that there are Egyptian ruins, skeletons attacking you, then demons, ninjas and soldiers. When you think things can’t get worse, the ghostly flying fish skeletons start to arrive.
Anyway, even though I don’t like Ninja Gaiden at all, if you buy the Master Collection, I recommend you play the video game first. When you come to play Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, you will enjoy it very much.
