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?
