Ninja Gaiden II
Developer: Team Ninja
Release Date: June 3, 2008
Ninja Gaiden II has quickly elevated itself to the forefront of action games with its heavy emphasis on cinematic fighting and liberal use of blood and gore. Cited by Tomonobu Itagaki as the last in the series, Ninja Gaiden 2 promises to be the be all and end all of 3D action games when it ships this June.
While impressions have been favorable one major flaw has been mentioned in nearly every play session, an ancient camera system that lacks the focus and scope of titles like God of War.
While the game has been hailed as the best in the series, many ask if the graphical jump from its predecessor is enough to solidify a spot in the hearts of graphic-hounds.
