Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm
Fun but Loses it at the Details.
This game is pretty fun if you watch the show. You get to run around the hidden leaf village, get into epic fights, and play around with a great fight system. (Except for the fact that the substitution jutsu is pretty important but hard to trigger and when you do it feels as if it's due to luck, not skill) But the big problem with this game is that it seems that the art team got sort of lazy. The game looks great and very close in appearance to the show, and one of the best parts of the game is the beautiful cutscenes. The problem is that many backrounds are reused for areas that were very different in the show (A small and nitpicky complaint) and even worse is that those wonderful cutscenes are very rare. You only see them at the end of a story arc whether that's the best place to put it story-wise or not. And because of the lack of the cutscenes many critical story points aren't shown and aren't well explained. This makes the story not as satisfying for people who watch the show and confusing for people who don't. So if you want to play this game, come for the gameplay, not the story. You'll still enjoy yourself. (I give it a 7.75)
This game is the perfect game to make Naruto's debut on PS3! CC2 made it look so real and it totally followed the anime. Well, Awesome anime=Awesome game!
Best of them all
simply put this is the best storm game of them all it may be lacking the characters of the other ones but its fighting system is better than the new ones your not limited in substitution, awakening mode isn't over powered, and if someone gets you with ultimate jutsu then you atleast have the chance to defend yourself via the button sequence that pops up during the ultimate I just wish storm 3 would be more like this. And the free roaming story mode is much better than storm 2 and 10 times better than generations
Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm: the start of a legacy
I was fascinated about this game. To be honest, I only had an Xbox 360 at the time, and so I started playing the Storm series at Storm 2 and Generations. But once I got a PS3 and this game, I was excited to say this is one of the best games I've played. The story mode is by far in my opinion the best out of the storm series so far; allowing you to travel around Konoha in a way that is free yet much more believable than Road to a Ninja and Broken Bond. Allowing you to relive the Naruto story from the beginning to the end of part 1, it never fails to give you an exciting challenge with its missions and unbelievably amazing cutscenes. The gameplay is a lot different than its future sequels; instead of focusing on your supports to fight your opponent, you have to rely really on yourself, which is a great way to train yourself and learn the game, especially since there are really no long range characters; it's all about getting in close to beat your enemy. It also adds much more gameplay tactics that the sequels leave out; wall-fighting, your partners being able to save you/further attack, Incredible Ultimate Impacts that show incredible close-ups of the characters' faces, the ability to escape an Ultimate Jutsu even if you're hit by one, and fast pace combo action. And the graphics are awesome; Storm 1 boasts of better graphics than its sequels, because the fast movements look much more realistic, as the hair and clothing breath more when characters move or attack. The only downside to this is that comparing all three storm games that are out so far, it takes forever for characters to stand up after getting knocked down, which isn't really a bad idea, but can be frustrating if time is running out. And I'm not going to say how the English version sucks, because frankly, I think that although it's not perfect, it's not bad either. All in all, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm is an amazing game; have you got what it takes to be the Ultimate Ninja?
The game is good because i have played it before.
I bought this game again since the last one i had my little brothers broke in half. I ordered it from here and it wouldn't even read the disk!
Best. Game. Ever
I love this game and this series. The game has done amaizingly well to create the feeling of actually interacting with the anime itself. There are no elaborate combos which may be a downer to hardcore gamers but the simple controls give an easy feel to the game allowing you to be more engrossed into the actual story.
Its a good game
I like the characters graphics and gameplay it the best game in the world
for sasake and naruto for to fight wiht the curse mark and the nine tail fox they could have die
If you into Naruto anime you will like this game, very good and fun game to play. verse mode very interesting to the sequences button's for the special moves and the fighting on the wall is very cool. The story mode is nice you can walk or jump builds and walk on water , nice !!!!!!
