First thing I'd like to touch on is gameplay, this game is easy enough for anyone of any age to pick up and just get right into the action. The downfall is also the gameplay, a little too easy to pick up and just play. Not much replay value here either, just a few extra missions here and there after you complete story mode once. Also online play is not an option with this title. As far as Naruto goes this game could have been way more in depth, more like the Xbox 360 Naruto:Rise of a Ninja. There was also minimal wii mote activities in this title. As for fighting games and the Wii, this could've been more like DBZ:Budokai Tenkaichi 3. You should have been able to freely charge you're chakra, and maybe used a series of wii mote actions to activate you're jutsu's. For example Sasuke's Chidori, move the wii mote down to charge, and then thrust it forward for the blow. I just really thought this game would be a little more compelling. In my honest opinion, I don't recommend it. Pick up Naruto:Rise of a Ninja for 360 if you have one, it's way more in depth and has a great replay value, not to mention the rpg, leveling up part to the game. But that's my 2 cents on it, hope it helps other Naruto fans out there looking for a good ninja game.

Sorry to say but i have seen every naruto episode 1-220 plus the 50 naruto chronicle episodes or in Japan its called "Shipuudden" and people that buy naruto games but it because they like the series and they want to be able to relate to the game. and they want to see what they see on episodes on this wii game, NOT a story mode that runs you through fights! which is ridiculous, because you constantly switch characters! You fight as Naruto like once, does anyone else feel like this game is ridiculing the actual show??? Now the Naruto game for the 360 "Rise of A Ninja" Now there was a game that played through the story they skipped quiet a few parts but its still exceptionally well.
