Already have ninja gaiden 2 on xbox. Would there be any point in downloading this?

How much of an improvement, id any, was jinja gaiden sigma over ninja gaiden 1?

Sigma was quite a bit better than 1 imo, uprated graphics, decent framerate, added features, more weapons plus you play as Rachel in parts.

2 is amazing so far, it seems really polished like I prefer the menus and stuff and things look a little sharper but it's nothing major, lighting seems more natural as well the 360 version looked brighter. Haven't experienced any framerate issues either.

Not sure with the demo but the real game sounds to be a big improvement, better quality grahics extra playable characters, co-op mode oh and boobaxis control!:D

Online coop in a ninja gaiden game is enough to justify this to me. Don't have a jap account and far too lazy to set one up so i guess i've just gotta bare with it till the US/EU demo :(

The Demo on the JPN store is fully english voice, subtitles and menus. Its very slick game, you do notice the lack of blood spurts but im sure it looks better and the camera seems to be better.

Didn't realise this was just an enhanced version of NG2 on the 360, very disappointing, turned it off as soon as the first cut-scene played :/

(before anyone trolls - I didn't read a single thing about this game before playing the demo, hence why I didn't know about it)

Ninja Gaiden Sigma is a rehash of the first.

Better and worse IMO. Sigma has improved graphics and framerate, more weapons and levels, but the game seems a fair bit easier and they've added a lot more save points and Muramasa statues to make things easier again. The difficulty was one of the main things I loved about Ninja Gaiden. I'll definitely be getting Sigma 2 though, the extra features make it worth it for me.

I am looking forward to it but watched the interview with the developer last night and looks like they have toned ALOT of the blood and gore right down. But made it an overall much better game..

All valid points but they're what made the game better for me :p. I suck at these sorts of games and the original ninja gaiden was barely accessible to me, sigma was much more enjoyable.

Mentor diffculty wasn't that hard on the demo levels, Ninja Master is quite a nightmare though but a lot more rewarding, the ninjas don't have guns like in mentor which is better but they are sooooo much faster and you're dead if you get hit more than 4 times.
