So, video and screenshots have proven simply how good the sport actually seems to be in motion. However what about gameplay? The unique was not precisely praised by critics, although I fairly loved it (minus the big variety of glitches). It undoubtedly wasn’t the “Halo Killer” it was touted as.

The sport certain does look good although. Guess we’ll simply have to attend and see.
Ninja Gaiden II (360)
Lastly on to the Xbox 360, I assumed we might by no means get right here. Ninja Gaiden II, the primary official, true sequel, guarantees to up every thing that made the unique so standard.

The sport options every thing new the Unreal Engine 3 has to supply. Extra enemies on display screen, extra destruction, extra practical lighting, and extra chainsawing motion. One other emergence day awaits us this fall.
