Nice, I'll be buying this game because nothing comes close to it in gameplay, but I wish it had done other things much better.

Why do developers suddenly like to spoil their games before they're even out? Anyway I must've played the demo about 20 times already. It's not as good looking as Sigma, but there's nothing as satisfying as leaving a trail of limbs and blood wherever you go!

NG2 looks far, FAR better than Sigma does.

And that's not a jab against the PS3, but the fact it was simply a spruced up Xbox game shows, the environments in NG2 are far bigger and more impressive looking. Granted, it's not particularly noticeable from the trailers, but if you play the demo, then I noticed a huge difference almost immediatly, and I was playing Sigma just a few minutes before :)

No.

NG Sigma Ryu model looks better than the one from NG2.

In NG Sigma, Ryu looks more realistic than NG2,
I got both the games (NG2 demo) and I did a picture-in-picture comparison and Ryu looked better on NGS.

However, the environment and after effects looked much better in NG2.

But I am happy how NG2 looks, can't wait to pick it up this week :D

No.

Some things look better, muscle textures and geometry, some not: metal reflections and animation... NG2 is way better, in that segment.

I find that hard to believe, HOW does the model look better in Sigma, HOW does it look more realistic?

From shots I've seen it looks exactly the same, if not better in NG2 from the slightly better lighting.

And doesn't have the horrendous amount of screen tearing sigma has. And the fact that sigma has no AA either.

In Sigma, Ryu is more detailed on the body (not the outfit), gives a bit more realistic look.

Aw man, it seems everybody has the demo!!! Its not out for the us yet I dont think, is it the japanese one you guys are playin.
Commented on 2008-06-02 23:10:27
Ryu NG2 looks better imo
Commented on 2008-06-02 23:10:29
One thing is more realistic, and another one, better graphs

Uhh, how? They finally applied some body textures on Ryu in NG 2, I'd consider that more detailed...

But the one from Sigma looks more like a realistic guy than a plastic doll from NG2...but that is what "I" think and seeing.

After careful inspection it would
seem like the angle in the ng2 pic doesn't show Ryu's muscles well, but you can tell by looking closely at his muscles that they are the same model with different clothes, the NG2 model is close 2 the cam and hunched showing less muscle detail in the ab and chest area but who knows maybe sigma's is more detailed, who cares I have been done with Ninja Gaiden 1 since 2004 bring on the gory masterpiece that Ninja Gaiden 2 is.

Well like i said before, I did a personal side by side through both the games oon my HDTV, and I still say Ryu in Sigma looks a bit more realistic than NG2.

I tried to find places were the lighting was normal and such, and I did on both and this is what I think.
Commented on 2008-06-02 23:41:02
Yhea, cuz what really matters is if Ryu has a more realistic yellow japanese skin, or a more caucasian, or more veins on is frickin' arms... yeah. with the shoddy camera and the slooooow type of game, Ryu is gona be 90% of the time still and in-close camera focus for our great observation, won't he?
Commented on 2008-06-02 23:49:06
I think he looks better in NG sigma than NG2, I don't go into the deep level of game making like some.
Commented on 2008-06-03 00:42:04
The difference to me is they decided not to make him look so ripped since he's a ninja not a body builder

Should be slim and quick

TO ME that makes the NG2 model a lot more realistic

NG2 looks more like a person would actually look, and Sigma looks more like fantasy/characterized

The funny thing is how Ninja Gaiden 2 only runs at 585p and can't even manage 30fps without slowdown compared to Sigma which runs at 720p and 60fps whilst managing to look the better game 90% of the time.
Commented on 2008-06-03 00:55:34
It's also funny how NG2 is the better game

You´re totally right Sath!!!

I posted some comparison pics at Iberians a while ago. If you put the model pics side by side, then you can see it immediately that the Sigma model looks definitely better/ more realistic

Anyway, I doubt that Sigma stand a chance in any other category, especially gameplay :-) Guys watch this video, and you´ll know what I´m talking about

sigma has terrible tearing, tons of glitches and has to load a dozen times when you enter different areas.
COD4 and Oblivion don´t run at 720p as well, but they called it extremely good looking games though.
Furthermore the slowdown is said to be only in the review builds and not on the retail copy!!!
Anyway Sigma is a good NG game though
