Time for an unbiased review. Most of the reviews on here seem to be by Naruto Fans and so its automatically got 5 stars.
My rating system:
5 Star-Must Own
I'll start off with the games strong points
Excellently drawn characters and stages, slight jaggies on some edges, very noticeable on characters when moving as well as screen tearing. Very nice colours and art style, looks about as close to the cartoon as any current gen console will get.
The Voice Acting
Having only watched the first episode of naruto and in Japanese I'm not sure if the voice actors are the same as the tv series. They are however very good. The character Gaara stands out, a scary voice in a way and adds alot of character to him.
Now onto the not so good bits
Gameplay is very straightforward and easy to get into which is good in a way but its also very repetitive and generic (Think the Dragonball Tenkaichi series). There are plenty of characters and the special attacks do look very good. Another nice feature is fighting on the walls as well as on the ground.
The storymode is a mix of normal battles as well as special stages such as fighting huge bosses by hitting different button combinations.
If you are a naruto fan then you pretty much need the game in your life. If not, you will probably find it a shallow beat em up with pretty visuals. I would recommend it once the price falls to below the £25 mark.
