GameStop Offers Exclusive Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Collectors

With all these Collectors editions scheduled for the holidays, it seems that many consumers are going to have make some tough choices.

Not surprisingly, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 will receive a special edition exclusive to GameStop: it will cost you only $10 more and feature an 80-page book with artwork from the entire series, plus comic strips to enhance the storyline and extra game strategy strips. Now, you may have heard that Tecmo has opted to give PlayStation 3 owners more gameplay content and less in the way of gore; there was more blood in the Xbox 360 version of Ninja Gaiden II. In this remake for the PS3, they will sacrifice some of that blood but give you bonus goodies in the form of new playable characters and side missions. Some have complained about this but as far as we're concerned, we just want the content; the blood and gore is merely a cosmetic effect that doesn't necessarily enhance the experience. On the other hand, Sigma 2 is the type of game that might compete with God of War III (if they come out in the same time frame) and let's face it...GoWIII uses extreme violence to its advantage. But if you want slick, fast action, you won't go wrong with Tecmo's critically acclaimed franchise.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is scheduled to release on September 29. It's a game that most any action aficionado should want to play, so if you fall into that category, make sure this gem is on your list.

There is some blood, there's a nice long video available and you see both a bit of blood and the new special effects that they were talking about in that last article about NG Sigma2.

Argh! Another game to add to my list? I need to do some serious planning of my purchases, because I will a) be broke, and b) have no time to do anything else!

I always like collectors editions. This may be another one I go for. The 80-page book with game art is a bit of a win, I think the inclusion of a game art book is my favorite pack-in with a Collector's edition.

Remember the GOW3 poll for the special edition? Man that's going to rock. I never got sigma 1 because I thought it was just a remake of and old xbox game(I know, stupid).

"But if you want slick, fast action..." Wouldn't blood help with the slick part?

And I'll never shop at Gamestop again. I'm tired of all this one-store-exclusivity crap they keep doing. I just can't support that.

Gaiden=too difficult for this cowboy. And why do the characters look like plastic models in the pic?

Didn't Tecmo indicate that there were multiple difficulty levels including a level for mere mortals like you and I?

I dunno, I just remember a horrendous experience with NG: Black and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

I would rather have less content and more gore. If I do get this game it will be a used copy.

they lost me with removing the gore.
the expect us to pay full price for the game when we can pick up the 360 copy for 30 bucks less, than it needs all content plus more not little of this little of that.
but if they allow you to play co-op online with another player next to you on the one console (resistance 2 did it so why cant this) than they might have me back.
and have a easier difficulty setting its to hard bloody 2 shots and half of your healths gone.
i can finish killzone 2 on elite which is regarded to be one of the hardest games.
but i cant finish ninja gaiden 2 on the easiest setting.
WTF????????????????????

whats going on with saw?
its supose to come out same time as the movie if i remember right the dev said that in a interview at E3.
but thats basicly the only news of the game ive herd this year.
if 1 game needs to be hyped up its that i think if done right could be a interesting new fun game.
something new, which i havent seen since assassins creed.

The summer drought of games has been painful. It seems the game releases should pick up in September... and leave me broke until December.

Day one purchase for me! I would rather have more content and less gore any day. I own all the God of War games and to be honest the gore is amusing at first, but goes unnoticed for the majority of the game.NGS to me was the best entry in the series and I have high expectations for this game.

Seriously, who the hell plays through a game just to watch blood and gore? Every action game I've played and loved I would love with or without gore. Ninja Gaiden is an action game not a survival horror game. The only games that truly rely on gore for atmosphere is the survival horror genre. So throw that crap excuse out the window!

If you play games just for blood and gore your one of two things.

A)Mentally disturbed and should question yourself why you play video games. Then seek help if needed.

B)Your not old enough to even be playing mature titles and should give all your mature rated titles to me.

Well I'm definitely A) but I'm not going to seek help. I love gore.

No Gore = No Buy

I'm at the end of NGS right now and I am looking forward to 2. Does less gore bother me? Not really especially since they've added more playable characters and more content. I might get the CE, maybe...

Most people don't seem to care, but even if I wanted this game I'd be upset at the simple fact that something was cut from the PS3 version, no cuts please, just additions.
