Summary: dont bother unless you have never played anoter version of this game
Comment: this game is very fun. however i give it a one star over all because of the way it was marketed. i own and love ninja gaiden black. i bought this game because i kept hearing about all the "added content" and "improved graphics". the added content is quite lame. this game actually has less to unlock than the "black" version, besides a few added cut scenes and a couple of addition boss battles that do nothing to enhance the story (they only provided me with irritation) this version has very little to offer. in the way of graphics. i was very disappointed. its debatable that the graphics are improved at all over "black". thats not good for a next gen system. the cut scenes which i love actually were worse because they took out the pretty cgi and used in game graphics. the difference wasnt that apparent but when you look close there were many more jagged lines where before they were smooth.
i will say that if you own a ps3 and have not played ninja gaiden black then deffinately pick this up. its very fun.

Summary: Wow!! This Game is the Boss!!
Comment: The graphics are so tight you will be playing this game in your dreams! Definitely not an easy game; you will have put in some serious time, but worth every minute. If you are looking for a challenge, smart story line, cool weapons, tight martial arts moves and some kick-butt graphics you want to get this game.

I am very pleased.

Summary: Infuriating Game If Your Not a Gamer
Comment: I'll admit I'm not a serious gamer, but I'm not useless with a controller. I normally play a game on the normal setting and hard once Ive already beat it. This game though, Damn. There are no other diffuculty settings other than "Youre F*ed". I have always wanted to play this game since I saw it on the Xbox, but since I have only had Playstations, I never got a chance until now. I was so excited when the game came it. I put it in and started playing it. Well right away I had a ninja running at me slashing me to bits. So I had to pause the game and read the manual to find out which buttons are what. So I start playing again with my new found knowledge of controls and work my way through the level, all the while getting my butt handed to me. After several deaths, I finally made it to the boss, who then proceeds to slaughter me. Now I will admit that I have little patience for this kind of stuff, but a 10 minute first boss fight is rediculous. After the first 3 hours of frustrating playing and never getting past the first boss, I took out the disk and threw it like a ninja star right into the wall. Which then pissed me off more because I had just wasted 50 bucks on a game. Im sure this game wouldve been much more fun, if it had not been so stupidly hard and I had a little more patience. All in all Id say "rent before you buy"

Summary: A Farewell To Thumbs.
Comment: When talking of Ninja Gaiden Sigma, there are those who wish to talk about how the game differs from the original XBOX versions (especially Ninja Gaiden Black (2005)), on the one hand, and those who wish to talk about Sigma as simply a great PS3 game. I would like to focus on the latter point. Sure, NGS is more polished graphically than its predecessor, and has a new playable character -the heavily bosomed Rachel- but it is fundamentally the same game to any but the most fanatical Ninja Gaiden fans. Of course, Tomonubo Itagaki, who was Producer of the XBOX Ninja Gaidens, would disagree with this point: he has publicly denigrated the PlayStation 3 version of the game, perhaps because it was left to his understudies to make whilst he worked on the XBOX 360's Ninja Gaiden 2. But let's put that down to ego and move on.

Sigma is a beautiful game, but its real beauty lies in the complexity of the combat system. The game is quite simply a masterpiece of fast-paced control and combat design. It edges ahead of games such as the excellent Devil May Cry series because of its wonderful balance of defence and attack, magnificently fluid controls and ultra-demanding difficulty level. Its lasting brilliance is shown by how it is able to instil a feeling of pride in a gamer who succeeds in defeating a boss, or mastering a combo move: it is the gaming equivalent of learning a martial art. It is Ninjitsu for thumbs.

Sigma, whilst not significantly "better" than the previous versions of the game, is wonderful despite -or perhaps because of- that. Most significantly, it gives PlayStation 3 owners the chance to play the greatest action adventure masterpiece of the last twenty years.

Summary: Not sure why this game is so popular
Comment: I agree that this game has excellent graphics moves and everything that you need. However I am stuck with the difficulty level and game play of the game.
I believe the game play is quite repetitive and the moves are really difficult. How am I supposed to remember a five or four button sequence just to perform one move. It irritated me. I spent 40 bucks on this game and think it is not worth this much.
