         xbox offical review in detail

        | | See all hunter2203's reviews (1)

        Naruto's not your average 12 year old kid. He's a troubled boy struggling in a society that's outright rejected him for harbouring the nine tailed fox demon. Oh, and he's a ninja too. the japanese phenomenon debuets on the 360 with a hybrid adventure that mixes traditional beat-'em-up action with free roaming elements. it's a vibrant game bursting with charm, and a hands on showed that its tastier than it looks. the beautifully rendered leaf village acts as the game's starting hub, and it's here naruto can explore the rooftops and interact with villagers. early on the population will shun the fox boy but they'll soon change their tune once you've gone and completed a few taks for them. donating coins to shopkeepers will open their stalls and, in turn, naruto's popularity will rise. those that you win over wil then offer hints if you approach them. as the game progresses naruto gains abilities that open up further locations. the double jump for instance, brings higher platforms into play, and so you'll be able to snaffle even more secret coins to please the locals. it's a super happy non-macho version of crackdown, and although missions rarely break away from relatively basic 'fetch it' tasks they're varied enough to keep you occupied. fights are, realy enjoyable. although technically sound for the most part, special moves require pinpoint precision thats hard to maintain. Naruto rise of a ninja could well be a challenger for the best licensed game for the xbox 360

        I would not normally look twice at a game like this, however the play.com price proved to be too good a deal.

        I am not a Naruto anime fan. My friend however loves it and was watching me play throughout the game. He was getting frustrated at many points in the story and saying things like "The ps2 games have a way better fighting system" and screaming everytime he heard Naruto say "Believe it." I thought the fighting was acutally very good and did not mind what Naruto said, but i assume if you are a fan of the past games and the anime it may.

        The village is crafted in fine detail and looks amazing. If actually maked you feel part of the community as you are running around looking for coins (which you will be doing a lot of.)

        The story starts slow with you doing tasks such as jumping around looked for herbs (as much fun as it sounds) and then fighting endless streams of "bandits". For the first couple of fights it is acutally fun, but later you will soon be cursing at the screen as soon as one of those darn thing pops out at you.

        The fighting is basically a very basic version of games such as tekken or Dead or Alive.

        Y= strong attack
        X= weak attack
        B= block
        A= Jump

        There are differnt combos and you can use a thing called "jujitsu" which you will be familier with if you watch the show. If you are not it is basically a special move which has different affects if you are in or out of a battle, such as

        outside a battle= the ability to run up trees or on water
        inside a battle= faster punches or kicks.

        It is a basic fighting system, but fun for awhile.

        The game only last four hours, which is a good and bad thing. I was already starting to be urked by the whole thing, but 4 hours to complete a game! That is crazy...

        Yes there are side quests and I could go around delivering food to people, but I have not the will power.

        This could have been a pretty fun game. However it seems happy to live in mediocrity.

        Wasted Potential. 5/10

         Great game!

        First off, for anyone who says "Naruto shouting 'Believe it!' every 5 seconds is really annoying"; there is a way round it. If you're like me and prefer Japanese audio and English subtitles, or just want to rest your ears from "Believe it!", you can go to the Xbox Live Exclusive Content on the game's main menu and download the Japanese Voices for free. If that hadn't been available this game would've got 3 stars from me because I much prefer to read subtitles than listen to a corny american dub...
        But still, this is a great game for any Naruto fan. You have freedom to roam the village and do quests and missons when you like.
        Graphics look brilliant on a 42" HD Samsung but sadly not as well on a 17" scart tv. But they still do the trick.
        Overall a great game!

         JAP SUBS??

        | | See all inferiuz's reviews (10)

        To the person who posted a review saying about subs, i give you this, a quote from US Ubisoft Community Manage, he states -
        We realize, that one of the most asked questions was "Will Naruto: Rise of a Ninja feature the Japanese voices?" And while that question has been asked again and again, we haven't been able to respond until now that we have final confirmation. It is my great pleasure to finally officially confirm that Japanese voices will be available for Naruto: Rise of a Ninja in a free post-launch download. Here is a short list of some of the cast that will be lending their voices:

        * Junko Takeuchi - Uzumaki Naruto
        * Kazuhiko Inoue - Hatake Kakashi
        * Chie Nakamura - Haruno Sakura
        * Noriaki Sugiyama - Uchiha Sasuke
        * Kujira - Orochimaru
        * Akira Ishida - Sabaku no Gaara

        The list above is only some of the Japanese voices cast that will be included in the game. So don't worry if your favorite character isn't listed above, the ENTIRE GAME will be in Japanese. This includes Story Mode, Fight Mode, all your favorite characters, the NPC Leaf Village characters as well as the anime cut scenes!

        The final thing I'd like to point out, is that you do not need a Xbox Live Gold account to download this. A free Silver account will work as well, so don't worry!

        this is not amazing, for people that are new to the games of naruto this seems to be good but in comparison to the ps2 and gc versions it's nothing, the fighting isn't as good, the combo's are foolish and it's too easy to complete
