Very Good

Naruto fan score: 8 Regular RPG gamer: 6

I am a big Naruto fan, and I can say that this game is pretty good! Let's face it, eventually they were gonna make a Naruto RPG. Now to talk about the game. Everyone who's reviewing is saying "o terrible graphics". Well I can agree but u have to admit, the Naruto sprite is pretty badass in a DS game. The Jutsu animations are okay. Make sure to play to the end because there are awesome Jutsus 4 everyone. The game play gets repetitive at first, but later on in the game, it gets fun. The Jutsus are the best part of the game. And I like how it stays [semi]true to the story. Too bad u can only play as like, 5 characters. Path of Ninja 2 will have tons more characters. Anyway, to wrap it all up, the graphics are decent, the game play is just like any cookie cutter RPG, the Jutsus are awesome, and there are hardly any characters to choose from (if you are the kind of person that likes different characters, I know I am, which was kind of a disappointment). As a Naruto fan, I give it an 8, but as an RPG fan, I give it a 6.

This game is great fun! But the graphics are not so great. There are a few characters that you can play as including the two ninjas in training and Naruto.

Use the pen on the touch screen to do devastating powerful attacks. Sometimes you can do tag team attacks. All in all I give it a 9.

Does not quite cut it for me

This game has one good point - it follows the storyline from just about the very beginning of Naruto pretty faithfully.

Otherwise, I found the general gameplay to be pretty boring. I guess I had gotten used to the later games and the more extreme styles of gameplay those allowed.

If you are a total Naruto fan and want everything to do with Naruto, then this game is definitely for you.
