Naruto Ultimate Ninja 4: Shippuden
You gotta have a certain taste...
Look if your a anime/manga tyoe gamer then you must have atleast heard of this show Naruto/Naruto: Spippuden and most of the games they make are pretty awsome. Hence my warning most this game pretty awsome for playing with a fellow anime lover but after you beat the game (solo that is co-op is not offered) it becomes boring alone i mean killing the same old guy over and over and over and over again, it gets old. The gameplay is extremely short starting off with a story that was made by the company (never was on the show) is a complete waste of time and when you get to the actual story it stops before you get to actually face sasori and deidara with the main character which was suppose to be finished in the second shippuden game but never was (either that or the second one is naruto ultimate ninja storm 2 for ps3 and xbox360) released so this game is basically a friend vs friend type game dont get it if you want a long adventure story line. ( that was a long sentence huh )
Awesome but very short
The story line is great but the big problem is it is way too short. If you got this game for Christmas or something it would be so easy to beat it in a half a day to a day. And if you really want to you can completely conquer it in about a week depending on how addicted you are to it. If you are a big gamer you should probably get it used but if not just get it new. The multiplayer mode is great and all but it lacks some of the coolest new shippuden characters like sasuke and sai. But it also lacks some of the great forms of characters(4-tailed naruto and the sasori that is out of the puppet) and it lacks the old characters like Raiga, Iruka(who was even in naruto clash of ninja one), and mizuki. Well this is the best ultimate ninja game but they could've done a lot better with the characters forms and with the hero mode especially. If I were you make sure to get it used if you're a major gamer. If you're not such a big gamer then get it new so it will last longer.Overall 7 out of 10.
Not the best in the series, but still good
This is a game that any Naruto fan should play at least once; if only to follow the storyline. The graphics and sounds throughout the game are amazing and the animation sequences are very well made. There's only two flaws, however: the first major part of the game consists of a filler that has nothing to do with the series and the actual storyline is too short. The game starts in the beginning of the Shippuden series and ends just after Gaara's abduction; not too far along at all. Besides these minor flaws, the game is quite well made. I was glad to see that all the characters, minus one or two, from the previous games were available as playable characters plus all new characters. It was a dissapointment, however, that the characters could not be customized as in previous games. The good part is that a few new challenges are incorporated into the gameplay such as the fact that pieces of memory must be found in story mode to unlock parts of the arcs. All in all this is a well rounded game and I would recommend it to any Naruto fan.
First console Naruto shippuden game
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate ninja 4 is a great game.I like all the ultimate ninja games they added exploration to this game which is cool.The story only goes up to where naruto,kakashi,sakura,and granny chiyo fight itachi so its not a very long game but I like it.Naruto Shippuden Ultimate ninja 4 is a great fighting game for the ps2.
When my friend told me about this game, I went out and bought it as soon as possible. Got home and played it and I was impressed. The thing I didn`t like was the beginning part...I was like "WTF?! This isn`t part of the Shippuden arc..." It was long as heck, having 2 go here and there and other crap. Later on, got 2 the real Shippuden and I was like "Oh yea, this is where the real fun begins!" and it was...but the storyline was pretty short and some parts were inaccurate. Like the 1 part where Deidara fought Gaara. In the anime, Deidara lost his left arm... In the game, he didn`t which was kinda of a let down. Another part was when Naruto fought Itachi. In the anime, Naruto finished off (the fake) Itachi with the Giant Rasengan... In the game, he finished him off with the Nine-Tailed Rasengan. I was hugely disappointed when it ended right after u defeat Itachi... U didn`t go 2 the Akatsuki lair and rescue Gaara!!! But otherwise, everything else is good...except for the lack of actual Shippuden characters. There was more regular Naruto characters...and plus finding those memory pieces was a pain in the u-know-what. Don`t get me wrong, but I been a long time Naruto fan...and I was a little disappointed. This game could have been better.... If u ask me, I rather play Ultimate Ninja 3...
This is a great game with plenty of different modes and characters to play around with. Firstly is the story: The story first takes place before the first episode of shippuden and then goes to right before the fight with sasoriand i didnt like the short length of it at all. but the good thing was there r tons of side quests and extra things to do and some are very challenging such as the frog quest. This is one of those games that after u finish the story and unlock quite a few characters and beat the story that u want to invite a frend over to play against wich is unfortunately only two player, so if u wanted to invite more then one frend over u would have to choose a different game. This is a great game to play in multiplayer especially if u have played the previous game and have much more experience then the other person. These are the reasons that this game is so good.
THE BEST ULTIMATE NINJA TITLE
We watched when he started out as a young ninja,but know we control the power of an wise and stronger Naruto Uzumaki.Clearly this an B rank title for the PS2 such as Tekken 5 or better.The graphics are still the same like every gamecube looking Naruto title and yeah I must admit it's stylish on a Prince of Persia rank. This title is awesome but it doesn't compare to the Naruto on Xbox 360's series.The new Naruto game for PS3 is quite disapointing though,for being the most hyped up Naruto title ever it plainly just sucks.Still this is the best title for PS2 yet-thumps up,the series of Naruto must work on it's graphics just alittle bit.Also Ubisoft should create every Naruto game for some reason because its better to play and have fun for hours.
Best so far!
This game really delivers a punch to those that love the Naruto: Shippuden series! It has a total of 52 characters which makes it more fun and enjoyable! The new Master Mode also shows the game in a new adventuress tone! One sad flaw I find to this game is that not all of the characters are in there Shippuden persona. There are only a few selected characters that are actually Shippuden characters, the rest are in there normal character form. But that is easily forgotten with some of the new characters featured, such as Diedara, Sasori, Chiyo, and many more! Besides that, the game is worth playing! With free battle and all those characters one could play for hours at a time! It also features the normal storyline from the Naruto television series, starting from the Sasuke retrieval Ark to the Shippuden Ark! It truly is one of the best Naruto Ultimate ninja games so far! The next will be anxiously awaited!
Its one of the best ultimate ninjas
if you are looking for a good long naruto game this is one to look at
Alright, so I'm a huge Naruto fan, when I saw this game was coming out I thought "finally, Shippuden is coming, I'll get to use the new and improved characters and play the story", so I finally get the game and I put it in. Don't get me wrong if you liked the previous Ultimate Ninja games, then you'll like this. But I was upset when I saw that the story only went up to rescuing Gaara, and it does not even complete the story!!! After I had watched Shippuden on the Naruto website, I was hoping to be able to play as characters such as Sai and Yamoto. But no, you get to play as all the old characters, and only a few have had a Shippuden makeover (and no Sauske isn't one of them). The next disappointment came when I started to use ultimate jutsu's, they are the same as from the the earlier games, you don't get to use any of Naruto's new jutsu or even Kakashi who reveals some of his new jutsu during the story line!!! So in closing I would say to skip this game and wait for a better Shippuden game to come out, continue to play Ultimate Ninja 3 because Ultimate Ninja 4 isn't worth it.
