Review:

The inception of the Playstation 3 has not brought about very many quality games. Ninja Gaiden Sigma, however, has taken away some of the "bad" rap.

This game is a wonderful ninja game that spawns from the original Nintendo NES series. The hero of this tale, Ryu Hayabusa, brings to bear the awesome abilities of a trained ninja, and through silky smooth controls allows you to put yourself into his split-toed boots. This is a character that can run up and down walls, flit across water, invoke powerful magic, and do things with a blade that not even a mother could love. His grace and freedom of movement in combat give you plenty of eye candy without resorting to cut scenes or "interactive sequences" that are little more than a button push tied to a cinematic. By focusing on compelling enemy AI and challenging combat scenarios, you end up making your own exciting scenes that'll put any big-budget martial arts picture to shame.

Ryu can also walk on water by simply maintaining forward movement. He'll drop beneath the surface if you stop moving, but if you keep your feet going, you can hack away at baddies from above sea level. Ryu can also find a new weapon option early in the adventure, the dual katana combo of Dragon's Claw and Tiger Fang. Ryu's stance changes when showing off his ambidextrous nature, and there are some combo and gameplay differences between this weapon loadout compared to the Dragon Sword and other obtainable armaments, but it's close enough to the dragon sword's familiar attack scheme to be comfortable to utilize throughout the quest.

Overall, with the fluidity of the controls and graphics make this game a really fun experience. Give it a chance, if you can afford the new hardware. You won't be disappointed!
