This is a great game, with good graphics, and fully voiced acting.. when some of my characters died i actually found myself caring a little bit..
but the story line and fighting are what really showed, the controls are quick and simple, and the story goes very deep. i used to be really into the show in like 6th grade, and this actually interested me, it's all around just a good game, worth a buy for the playing hours put into it. the only con was walking around from city to city to get dolls and pearls.. and material collecting, just kind of boring, but this game is a good challenge, and very long.

I just recieved the game this morning at 10 am, and ive been playing it since then. Non-stop. The game is very addicting. (spoiler) the beginning of the game starts out slow and seems to drag on, but for all of the naruto fans like me, pushing through it makes it so much more sweet when you start on the acual missions like recuing Garra from the guys in black cloaks (spoiler end). The grapics are amazing and the voices are dead on. The fights are even better, while yes there are 2 bars of health for everyone you fight including yourself, but with well timed combos and constant button mashing, you fly threw most of the fights with little to no challenge.

For those of you curious about trying about the game, i would recomend it to everyone. This game is long and will have you hooked for hours on end, and after beating it, like myself, i will probably be re-playing the story mode for all of its epicness. the only downside to the game is it reveals everything that you may have not seen in the manga or subbed episodes online, so if your one for wanting to see the fights happen while you sit back and chill, then do that as soon as possible before you start the game up. And as a side reminder for all of you achievement hunters, this game requires endless hours of play time in order to achieve some of the achievements. Good luck to all who play and hope you enjoy it as much as i am right now!!

first let it be known that i am also a fan of the series, and current on it to the events in this game, if you aren't watching subed versions in the 150+ area, this would be a spoiler game just fyi

that being said I really enjoyed this game. being able to play through the fights was fun, they have some button combination sequence things you do in bossfights that are like special events and uber powerful attacks, again if you watch the series its like reliving the best parts of the fights without the dragging dialogue, it does move rather quickly though and doesn't take long to clear everything, which is a little dissapointing to me, but I understand as to unlock all the characters in the 2 player fight mode you need to clear the entire story mode.
the game is really beautiful too, it has alot of attention to detail and the fighting system is really basic, but also fairly complex as they added a way to combo attacks with support characters that can be OP if done right,
If you aren't familiar with the series at all but enjoy a good story, it is an awesome story, I would strongly recommend watching it in japanese with english subs, as the english will make you not like the show, its gross, its not the coolest fighter ever, but its got alot of cool characters with alot of different styles and abilites, and a fighting system that you can have alot of fun with without needing to spend too much time learning it.
