Rated 9 out of 10 by Xander The Ninja Poet Ninjas RULE!
Naruto Shippuden Legends is a fun action/adventure game based on volumes 28, 29 and 30 of the Naruto manga. The graphics are the best of any PSP game I've played yet. The controls are almost identical to the Uzumaki Chronicles series for PS2 which, is a good thing. I rather like that series. In fact this game is basically Uzumaki Chronicles 3, in my opinion. Anyway, the gameplay is very fluid and it's pretty easy to just jump into the game without reading the manual. I wish there were a multiple lock-on button though. Aside from Story mode there's a Mission mode, Survival mode, and 2-player versus mode. The Mission mode and Survival mode are basically the same: complete objective without dying. I don't know how 2-player versus works - I haven't played it yet. The coolest thing about this game is that you can fully customize your characters' Jutsu. I've unlocked 8 characters so far. I can't imagine who the rest will be. All in all, I think this is a really great game!

alright first off I would like to recommend this naruto game to any body who is a fan of the serious or not it has a good story line extra bandits for u to fight although its difficulty on some could make u be on it for hours trying to win. I say its worth it u get a good amout of people to use (altough they could've added more that would've been nice ) the 3d graphics are great considering its the first naruto shippuden game to come out for the psp. overall i'd recommend this game to anybody that enjoys fighting games the controls could get some getting use to but other than that they give u a good set of special moves to exacute and it would give even the best gamers a liking for the game. I liked picking itachi, neji, kakashi and sasuke. this in my opinion is the best game yet thats come out for the psp it has pretty good graphics and u get to go through the gaaras ark story line or play as a akaski which i am totally in favor of.so if u are one of those kids that likes naruto and want to take it on the go get this game u wont regret it

This game is great. First of all the graphics are really good and the fighting system is good. The way you can actually walk around is also great too. This game is a must play game, it is very,,, well long enough not to beat in like a day. This game is worth the money and just great. You get many characters and the moves are great. You can customize and battle and level up which is another great thing. You can also play with a friend that has the game.It follows the storyline for the most part and all of the characters look great. Loading times are not that long. You can also shop for items and upgrade characters with scrolls and buy pills and weapons/tools. They really took their time with this game because it is really that good.; especially being a psp game its great. So if you like naruto and you have a psp you should definitely get this game it is fun and a little challenging but mostly fun.

I can't believe this game is coming out. I just finished playing Naruto Ultimate Ninja 4 on Playstation 2 and it was pretty awsome. The thing that they left me asking myself was what happened to Gaara? Well this game is going to answer all my questions. The graphics look really cool, all the different characters are also another plus to this game. The new Shippuden games are really something else becuase they take you into a whole new world with new jutsu, new characters, and a story that will get you hooked. The music in these Shippuden games also compliment the settings of the game quite nicely. I haven't played this game but I will, the best to do right now is to pre-order A.S.A.P. This game is going to take the world by storm. So make sure you purchase this game and find out what happens to Gaara after he has been kidnapped by the Akatsuki. Trust me, I don't think you will be disappointed.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Fred77 The new Naruto PSP series
I have played this for the first time this week and it was really good. At first it looked like a 6.5 game, but it actually was really fun. I have played many fighting games and this is my favorite out of 7 fighting games. At first it looked like it had bad graphics. As you go through the game you don't really mind. I am not a fan of naruto, but my cousin got it for my birthday. I played it, and it had lots of wireless and ad-hoc features. Me and my cousin would just play it together for like 2 hours. The storyline is great. I didn't know much about naruto so my cousin filled me in and I loved the game. I am now a fan of naruto games. My favorite feature has to be akatsuki mode. That is a real fun storyline to go through. I play as deidara most of the time. Well it has a lot of different modes from other naruto games. I recommend this game for naruto fans and non-naruto fans.
Rated 1 out of 10 by narutimatecrack not worth it
naruto shippuden legends of akatsuki rising is a good game and all, but all this is basically the same story we've got in naruto ultimate ninja 4 for ps2, but there were an exception with sasuke and sai as secret characters, but no actual story with it??? wheres the fun in that???? the animation was quite unatractive at best the graphics failed to capture my taste, and in my opinion, if your a person out there thats looking for a naruto game on psp, plz dont pick this up (unless your absolutely desperate) instead i would reccomend getting naruto shippuden ultimate ninja heroes 3 - also for psp and it provides a longer story line with better graphics more characters to choose from and local multiplayer action, i give naruto shippuden legends of akatsuki rising 1.0
Rated 9 out of 10 by Sasuke65656 Best Naruto Game Out There.
First off I wanted to say how well done the graphics for this game are. It looks just as good as any Naruto game on the Playstation 2. The story was well done, Even though not spot on, like the anime, I liked the new things added. The character selection was good, nothing the Ultimate Ninja series didn't have, but still good! The missions were enough to keep any gamer going, they had plenty missions, and plenty of other thing to do also. The controls were fairly easy. The type of game you can pick up and play without any experience, which was good. But not enough button mixing (different buttons for different combos). After awhile pressing the same few buttons gets a little boring. But other then that It was a fair buy if you ask me! It's a must buy for any Naruto fan.
Rated 10 out of 10 by digidude689 nice game
i really cant believe how good this game was i would recomend it to any naruto fan the story line was awesome including how u could play with the akatsuki this game is better than the other previous titles for the psp like i said it had great grapic and everythig this game is sick ok honestly i didnt like the story line that much and i was able to beat this game in like a week but other than that this game is great i just dont know wat to say i really would have liked them to add more characters i the game but tough luck and i had to say some of the parts of the game did frustrate me and were kinda hard to get past i would recomend this to any of my friends as a matter of fact i already did i liked the cover image like almost everything about this game
Rated 9 out of 10 by Nagato Alright, I'm going to be honest.
Naruto Shippuden Legends: Akatsuki Rising. The game is technically a fighter. It has great graphics and texture in the game. If you've ever played Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm, this is pretty much that, but in Shippuden and with a little less characters. The game has a fair amount of characters for a PSP game. I've seen Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi, Sasori, Sasori's puppet Hiruko, Temari, Deidera, Kisame, Itachi, Rock Lee, Guy, and Tenten. There are more than that but those are the ones that I've seen. All in all I would say it's a great game to hold you off until Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 comes out. Another thing is that the sound is not the greatest, but you will eventually overlook that.
