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.
