It's a great 3d engine game for the DS. Many games on the DS have trouble keeping graphics up to really show anything off. But this Naruto game is a step up in graphics from the one before, and I was impressed with Naruto: Ninja Destiny's graphics. The storyline, sums up a good 50 or so episodes from the Shippuden story arc, which is really great. It's a very good story and does take place after the first Ninja Destiny ends. A big jump in character choice really adds to enjoyment and wanting to unlock more and more. The first game had 16 characters. This one has 34, As well as new modes to play. I found Quest mode to be very entertaining. I'm not even finished with it yet. It has a great lasting appeal. Though you may call it a button masher. I disagree. Some characters are faster than others, but of course, that will make them weaker. So, when you play characters that are faster, you have to plan more on when to attack. Having 2 difficulties shows a real difference in how good you are at the game. I suggest beating the story mode on both difficulties, that way you unlock more characters and modes of fighting in single player. (the story isn't too long.). The specials are better than the first games specials. Not Fantastic, but they're impressive. Having the shaded background so that you focus on what's happening makes the special/finisher alot cooler to look at. The sound in this game is done well. Good choice of music, it goes well with the gameplay. My only complaint is during the specials, i feel the music should change making it more intense. It's not a big factor , it just seems like they can tweak it for the next Ninja Destiny. As I said, you have 34 characters to choose from once you unlock them. So it does make you want to play it more and more. And the character balance seems pretty good for the most part. No one is too cheap. Sasuke may have a little bit of benefits, but nothing huge. One of the only other complaints I have is the challenge. I never really felt a big challenge even on the Hard difficulty. This may be because of experience from the first Ninja Destiny. If I can suggest, play the first Ninja Destiny before you get your hands on this one. It well help with controls, power ups, and knowing the story. That way you will have a good idea of what's happening in this one and why. Overall, It's a great fighter game that has a good all around, graphics, sound, story, characters, and lasting appeal. Complaints most will have is it's difficulty.
yes: I recommend this product
