Fun...for a little bit

This game did not live up to it's hype. The gameplay was fun for about 2-3 hours. After that it became ridiculously hard and ridiculously repetitive. The graphics are amazing though. Worth a one-day rental, but that's it.

You will be SORELY DISAPPOINTED! At first, the game seems to be similar in play with a few added features. However, as you progress to middle chapters (5 onward), the game starts to become extremely frustrating, much more so than the first one. The camera angles are awful, especially in tight quarters. The weapons are nice, but the new enemies are ridiculous in strength, block breaking, and mini-cutscene combos, which do tremendous damage even from the small enemies. The bosses use these as well, and often take half of your health on one unescapable combo. If you want to punish yourself, give it a shot. If your looking for a good hack n slash, either rent God of War 2 or wait for something else.

Gamer to kill mood

I consider myself a pro gamer while maintaining my work life, but this game made me look like I wasted my life trying to do something redundant. It was hard to the point were I asked myself, "What am I really doing?" Graphics are great but the camera and the difficulty really turns you off.
If you wanna waste your time as a gamer, with not-so-great element of fun, while trying to prove your gaming skills, anger management and persistence, just to get a glimpse of satisfaction for self proclaimed accomplishment, go for it.
I am probably never gonna play Ninja games, ever.
If you can't enjoy it, don't play it.
