I searched and did not find a thread on this game yet, so I thought I would start one...I can not wait for this game, the first one ruled. I even bought the updated version for PS3 just because it was so good. I had no idea it comes out in a few months too (4/1/2008)...

If there wasn't a reason to buy a 360 (there is), but if there wasn't now there is..:D

I'm excited for this game. First one was fuckin' tough, though.

No shit. I NEVER fucking beat it. I got to the part where you have to go through the seven or so floors before you get to the end, and couldn't make it past the last or second to last one.

Then my disc got scratched.

But I know I wouldn't have finished it anyway.

Bump.

It's coming out tommorrow, I'm going to get it for sure. This game and GTA4 are the pretty much the main reasons I got a 360.

I'd like to know if they've made the boss fights easier. The first game seemed fun until I got to the first boss battle, then I died. Over and over and over again. And I couldn't pull off that cheat where you don't fight the boss, you just wait to do a wall run-jump to a slash over and over again.

Looks like I'm going to have to rent this one to see if it's too hard for me.

The first game was a fuckin' tough game, but it just required some practice and skill. I made it about 2/3 the way through the game on 'hard' after having beaten 'normal,' and it's just a tough, bitch of a game.
But that makes advancing SO fucking rewarding.
I still jump into that game from time to time just for that.

That game on hard is something else. It took me about 25 tries to beat that crazy flying boss in the cathedral in the first game.

It's a challenge thats fun though.

This is one of my favorite series out there but man this game loves to prove to you how much you suck every now and then. This is one game just for hardcore gamers.


Anyone remember Ninja Gaiden arcade game?



This is one of my favorite Ninja Gaiden comic reference :haha7::haha7::haha7:

The reviews are all over the fucking place for this game, anything from 7's to 9's. The one thing I noticed is in the lower reviews, they bitch about the difficulty ALOT! That's exactly what I want, so I'm getting it first day. Also, to anyone who gets it, I'll have uploaded gameplay vids by the end of the week, so if you need help or get stuck just watch me do it first.

I didn't like Ninja Gaiden on the Xbox and from what i can tell, it hasn't changed at all. I have no tolerance for a game you have to bash your head on the controller, do research and hone all your skill for a single level, and have it mean jack shit as soon as you reach the boss.

I might rent it, but from what I've read, it's for those who specialize only in Ninja Gaiden.

I still play it from time to time, and it was the reason I bought an Atari Lynx (that, and APB). Loved that game.

In the first Xbox game, I never had problems with the bosses, even on hard, but for some reason, one of the types of enemy ninjas would fuck me up every time. Stupid exploding darts.

When does the demo come out, a few days? I might have to pick this game up. But I do need to finish GTA4, finish Lost Odyssey, and pick up the 80gb PS3 MGS4 bundle when it comes out.

The game is out tomorrow.
The demos and the games do not necessarily always come out on the same day.
