  Naruto at its finest!

| | See all TheGamr's reviews (9)

i wouldn't call myself a fanboy of this anime so by giving this game a 5/5 really shows how good this game is.

graphics are top notch, boss battles are just awesome and the story mode itself is "one of a kind" seriously iv never played any naruto game that went so close to the anime itself and during boss battles it feels like your actually watching the anime!

even if you've never heard of naruto i would highly recommend this game, why not rent it give it a try.

and for any naruto fan out there i say stop reading here and BUY this game right NOW! :D

you'll definitely love it!!

Gameplay: 9/10
Graphics: 10/10
Replayability: 7/10
Learning Curve: For previous Naruto game players: about 20 minutes (give or take), for new people: 45 mins solid playing, to get a feel for the controls.

Pros:

- Graphics-wise, the top of it's class - visuals are beautifully rendered, blur is at a realistic and consistent level, the characters and their moves are perfectly rendered.
- Legions of characters to choose from, each totally different to last. Mixing and matching to find your ideal stable of 3 characters is both fun and rewarding.
- Plenty of fan service to be had here, HD cutscenes of the best fights from the anime/manga intertwine perfectly with the action (seamless transition between the fights and the storyline)
- Enough depth and immersion in a battle to really create a fantastic and visually pleasing battle, the elemental effects of fire, water and lightning on the opponent(s) is always a spectacular sight to behold

Cons:

- Ultimate Jutsu cutscenes are under 6 seconds long, compared with the previous game, this is sort of a setback
- The campaign mode can be very laboured and boring
- On Xbox Live, you are likely to only encounter a select few characters, hand-picked to spam

The Verdict:

A fantastic debut of the Ultimate Ninja series to the Xbox, virtually everything has been covered and no doubt that every single fan of the series would absolutely melt for this game. The online keeps everything fresh and hones your skills, whilst still maintaining a competitive edge. So, ladies and gentleman, boys and girls: a storm is coming, whether you step up to the mark or not, you will not soon forget an experience like this.

  good

this game is good, the fighting is good but the story mode can get repetative so make sure you've woken up on the right side of the bed before you play the story. sadly you must complete the story to get all the character's but the boss battles are so good you will probaly play them again.

  Boooooooooring....

The game description is wrong for one, this isn't the first Shippuden game on consoles. Its only the first self titled Shippuden game.
The fighting has leveled up since the PS3 Ultimate Ninja Storm, but that's all there is to the game. The demo only shows you one part of the actual game, the main part that is, in the fighting. But the rest of the story mode is spent running around doing aimless things. There is no map interaction etc. and no open world to do as you please, just as in Naruto Broken Bond, which imo is far better.

  Looking Good

From the demo this game seems surprisingly good. The fight really mixes things up - feels more like a boss battle in an action adventure title than your standard fighting game.

Only concern I have is that this game will contain huge spoilers for people who do not read the manga or watch the anime in Japanese with subs. It's a long way ahead of the current US dub releases.
