GamePlay
Basics - This game is a 3rd person action/fighting hack and slash game similar to God of War and Devil May Cry. NG2's battle mechanics work the same way as the previous NG games - Ninja Gaiden, Ninja Gaiden: Black, and Ninja Gaiden Sigma. The main difference is that before you could only charge attack the main weapon but now you can charge attack with projectiles too now - bow/arrow and incendiary shurikens. The health system has changed as well. Save spots now give you fill health 1 time only though. The trade off however is that you can't carry as many health and ninpo potions as before. In case people don't know the main weapons are the Dragon Sword, Eclipse Scythe, Tonfa, Flails, Lunar, etc... You can fight on land, attack while jumping in mid air and while running on water.

Cons of Gameplay - For some reason I think the devs made Ryu even more retarded in this game when compared to the previous games. He no longer does Wind Run correctly, I'll try to jump towards someone using it and he'll jump off into some random direction getting killed 5 times in the process before hitting floor in his stupor. Wind Run / Guillotine Throw doens't work that well. Pisses me off! Also the camera angle is the worst enemy in the game. It has a mind of it's own and wants you to die. Ghost fish pop of nowhere and attack you non stop. Bad guys can somehow carry a rocket launcher and shoot at you accurately even though you cut off one of their legs and one of their arms. How you don't die from that?


Graphics/Art
Team Ninja made the most outstanding game last generation in terms of graphics with Ninja Gaiden 1 and Black on the XBOX 1, and have done a good job on NG2. Every environment is different in the game. Locations take place in city Tokyo skyscrapers, New York City, Statue of Liberty, Brazil forest, Giant Enemy AirCraft flying thousands of miles in the air, bowels of Mt. Fuji, Italy, Russia etc...

Here is an image of the game:

Music/Sound
I like it. It basically goes with the environments and bad guys you are fighting. If you are wandering in the village, it's kind of quiet but then gets loud when giant monsters attack you. The big boss battles have epic demonic like music to it. Here is what the music sounds like when fighting the Werewolf monsters.



Multiplayer/Online
This is a single player game. Only little bitches complain about not getting multiplayer for ALL their games.


Replayability
You just play the campaign over and over and try to beat each difficulty. Very frustrating game, not for casual gamers!
Recommended for existing Ninja Gaiden fanbase, or if you are a hardcore Devil May Cry or God of War fan and want to try this out, get it. There is one thing that I don't like is that Ninja Gaiden Black and Sigma 1 and 2 have mission modes on the disc but for NG2, you have to pay to play that in the form of DLC. It's basically content that should have shipped on the disc. (Dick move) Mad


Good: High octane fun fighting game overall. More weapons and bigger environments.
Bad: camera angle sucks, game is glitchy, should have spent extra year on development, pay for DLC which should have already shipped on the disc for free, frame rate drops.

Conclusion

Gameplay: 8
Graphics/Art: 9.5
Music/Sound: 9
Multiplayer/Online: N/A
Replayability: 8

Total: 8.5/10

I'm guessing nobody has even tried the game out. Damn casual gamers! Evil or Very Mad
