Ninja Gaiden II

I'm playing it right now and I have to say the graphics are insanely sharp, as well as the combat moves......but my complaints (if I have to have them) would be that the camera angles and movement can (sometimes) be choppy and difficult to control (the camera, I mean) so when you're say, walking up a flight of stairs, you have to constantly turn the camera so you can tell where you're going. Also, some of the weapons are cool and all, but you have to make sure that you're using the right weapon at the right boss fight (or with some enemies), because a "one-size-fits-all" style doesn't even work for this (as it did for the last game).

They even fucked with the control menu, so things that used to be there (force of habit style things such as using the right bumper for block, for instance) is elsewhere, so there's a NEW learning curve with this, and a lot of bodies with scrolls of the "woe-is-me-now-I'm-dead" things in it (I think they're the elusive emo ninjas!)

I'm enjoying it so far though......currently I'm on Chapter IV.

I played the demo and i was impressed but i did get a bit pissed trying to get the bow to work properly. i was getting maced by a guy with flaming arrows but couldnt get anywhere to get my bow out to kill him without getting shot. that pissed me off horribly. eventually i managed to find somewhere miles away and used up half my arrows shooting through a tiny crack where he couldn't do enough damage to me to stop me shooting, but i could just about get him. i couldn't zoom in and shoot, just shoot as many arrows as i could in his general direction and try to kill him. this pissed me off. that's not ninja, that's spray and pray.

it was kinda okay but i agree with you with the weapons thing, which i think is good in one aspect, but having to almost pause and switch in the middle of a fight, then get battered while waiting to use the next weapon, that bugged me a bit. some fight sequences i felt like stallone or Van Damme getting smashed up and coming back right at the end to kill everyone.

Exactly. I mean, I don't mind having to work for something (i.e., a boss fight) but when I have to do the same f'n thing over and over and over again (all because I didn't use the right weapon) that SUCKS MAJOR.

Yeah, I know what you mean about the bow thing......I mean, after awhile I felt like I had a blindfold over my eyes for all the good I was doing......and then if I got hit I'd spin around and start doing something different! RRR!
