Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2: The Phantom Fortress is a great game for Naruto fans. A mysterious castle appears over the Hidden Leaf Village, and it's up to Naruto to find out why the castle, known as The Mugenjo, is there. The Mugenjo Story Mode is good, but I think that the 100 floors and continuous battle after battle is kind of lame, but the Story behind it is great. Also, if you beat The Mugenjo (which I did yesterday), you unlock The Hidden Mugenjo, a side-story featuring Jiraiya going through the castle. Heroes Mode is great too, similar to Ultimate Ninja Heroes 1. In this game, you can be over 20 characters with new justus to use, such as Kabuto, The Third Hokage, Tsunade, Shizune, Itachi, and Orochimaru. The graphics in Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2 are pretty good, and the voice acting is good, other than Tsunade who sorta sounds like a man.. Ninja Road is where you use the Ninja Points you get in battles and go through a road and collect photos, movies, character pictures, and more. Overall, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2: The Phantom Fortress will take you a while to beat, so if you are a fan of Naruto and you like fighting games, I recommend buying this game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by animekid a small step up
The Bad: this game is decent but lacks the feel of a sequel, with about 4 more characters and about 3-5 new stages it just feels like they created it just for the storyline. THe storyline is very good, but it lacks most interactivity, when you are creating your own room u barely get to pick what u want and where you want it. Some of the fights you engage in story mode just feel misplaced in the story. The good: With new cinema specials and better graphics this game does feel like they took a small step up, but they had the possibility of so many more stages and characters (ex: the sound 4 and their areas where they fought). WIth the new mini-games its nice you can take a break from all the action while still playing a naruto game. Some of the challenges in this game may seem a tad bit easy but as you move up in skill they will get harder. Some sounds that happen may get repetitive but they will eventually just get ignored once you play it enough. Overall this game is worth buying.

when i bought this video game i thought that it is was going to suck, but when i started playing it i found out that this was an amazing game, it just goes to show that "you can't judge a book by its cover" as many people say. I really like the beginning because i just think that when you start a game it the best part. i like the weapons you get in the game like shurikans (ninja stars to be exact) and the kunai throwing knives, i started liking naruto one year before this by watching the show (its really cool). I also really like the jutsus that you get to learn and use in the game, the story line and characters are my favorite parts along with the fighting styles and movements that you can do in the game. i like it so much that i am saving up to buy a naruto kunai throwing knive replica from my favorite sword and knife store "bnd knives and swords" in st. catherines. so just to let you first time buyers know, its a REALLY GOOD GAME. ps. if you do buy it, i hope you like it ( I REALLY did )
Rated 7 out of 10 by blahblah Pretty Good
I thought Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2 was an alright game. It was like the previous Ultimate Ninja Heroes game, but it was a little bit better. The single player mode made you have to go in the Mugenjo or the Phantom Fortress. You have to go through the Phantom Fortress's 100 floors and it is sadly really boring. The only things you do are play mini games but there are cut scenes that let you see a mini movie. That brings me to the good part. The game has amazing graphics. The cutscenes in the Mugenjo show the characters talking and it looks great. When you initiate your character's special move, it shows a picture of your character in the background and it looks cool, but that's not the best part. When you actually do your special move, it looks amazingly good and cool. The storyline in the game is really good and it's an original story so you can only know what happens if you play it. So yeah, you should get this game. And the thing that made me buy the game in the first place is...IT'S A NARUTO GAME!
Rated 10 out of 10 by The Biggest and Best Naruto fan It's pretty great
This game was very long and can be tedious. The fighting itself, for which the game was made, is great. The graphics are very good for a handheld device. When you first begin the game, most people would head to the story mode, also known as the mugenjo. As you first begin the mugenjo, it is a lot of fun, and becomes more challenging in the later levels. The mugenjo does get tedious after 50 or 60 levels, and to get to level 100 can take some time. Once you beat the mugenjo, more characters unlock, and you can take on the 'Hidden Mugenjo', which is the harder version of the mugenjo, using Jiraiya rather than Naruto. The Hidden mugenjo is harder, but, it becomes tedious like the normal mugenjo. After one has completed both story modes, and all of the heroes' modes, the game is pretty much over. Unless you want to get the few points left for the ninja road. The graphics are good, and the storyline could be different, but overall, a pretty good game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by alonsham What i think of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2:
I really liked UNH2. It has added characters which were not in UNH1. The game play has been barely changed. Still same button layout and HUD. Only thing is there is finally a story mode included with Heroes Mode. The graphics have been improved slightly. All characters have a bit more detail. The storyline is OK. Could have been better. I won't write the storyline itself here because I do not want to give away spoilers. A new feature has been added, where you can unlock stuff by collecting Ninja Points (NP) and use them on the Ninja Road. The more points, the more meters Naruto walks and unlocks content. Only feature I didn't find and would love to is Customizing Characters. I know the ultimate ninja games had them, but not Heroes. That disappointed me and dropped the rating to 8.5. But if you look, I gave this game a 7.5. That is because the game lacks characters. I would recommend buying this game. Also would recommend it to a friend.

Naruto UNH2 is a pretty good game. I have the first one and its better than the first one. New techniques, new characters, new stages. Once I got the second one I got hooked on it since yesterday when I bought it. And what I did is change the voice to Japanese since I'm more use to it cause I have watched all the episodes in Japanese. I like how they added a story part to it called the Mugenjo. But there are a lot of steps to it. I'm at the 27th floor and there are, I think, 99 floors. This game will keep me busy for a month or so just to beat it. The graphics are the same as the first one. The sound is the same. There are new moves for many of the characters such as Naruto, he gets the rasengan. Controls are the same. There are different unlockables. Plus this game is challenging. All in all, I'd recommend this game to a Naruto fans who have a PSP.
Rated 9 out of 10 by final fantasy rules! Great Game
You won't regret getting this game. This is probably the best portable fighting game I have. There are a lot of characters and they're all unique and have their own fighting styles. I really like how you can use minor jutsu (moves/techniques) compared to your super-move. Whic brings me to thesuper-move itself. The super moves are very cool, unique and graphic. You also have a status after you preform your move for a limited time that enhances your abilities, which is a feature I enjoyed. The storyline is really fun, and enjoyable. It seems like an actual Naruto episode storyline. They also have mini-games in the story-line which are fun. The graphics are great, especially for a PSP, which was good. The style of the game was a traditional, 2d background with 3d objects, perfect for fighting games. You WON'T regret getting this awesome game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by R&CFan Nothing short of fun
The big thing I have to say is that it's fun. That's it. It's fun as hell. I'm not a big fan of the anime, but I can tell you, the games have always been good, and this is no exception. I never really saw any glitches, the gameplay was smooth, and the Mugenjo is fun and challenging, even if I prefer to stay away from minigames. My only beef is the sound. Naruto's games have always had sound issues though, so it's nothing new, and everything else make up for it. One thing with the first game was that I wanted to fight opponents one-on-one, but I had to choose. In the Mugenjo, every battle room a fresh new character is there waiting, and you can pull out anyone in your team and fight. It's great! One more thing about sound though. I prefer to set voices on Japanese since the English voice actors are never good for Naruto games. Believe it.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Neji-dude_120 so-so
First off, we should clarify that although this is, in every way, a Naruto game, knowledge of the anime series will not significantly influence your experience. Having an intimate familiarity with everyone's favorite ninja youth may accentuate your time with Ultimate Ninja Heroes, but that's about it. There's no story mode or real dialogue to speak of, and besides a few one-liners that are spoken before battle, Ultimate Ninja Heroes has no narrative or plot whatsoever. So, if you don't know anything about the series, you can put your concerns aside. This game is extremely accessible to general fighting game fans, and the only real disadvantage such gamers may experience is not knowing the names (or fighting styles) of the characters included. But that information can be gained from an hour or two of play time, so it's nothing to worry about.
