It is hard for me to give this game a 6 because I so desperately want to give it a higher rating. This series has proven over and over again on how they can simply nail the visual display which is mostly why there are such high ratings. After I played the second game in this series I was excited to see how the creators could stun me once more with the giant battles and very deep story, unfortunately this game just fell with its lack of giant battles and more of the regular battles which you can do in free mode. That being said, combat has significantly improved making it a little more of a challenge and fun to play rather than being a chore and the new feature of adding Ultimate Decisions to determine how the next bit of gameplay will pan out but there are so few that it is hardly noticeable. Adding secret actions as well was a nice feature as well but since there are too few and how to do some of them is confusing since the game will not tell you what the icons indicate (but I guess they are "secret" factors). This game has so much potential but it took a few steps back and the new features were not enough to make up for it. I am still excited to see the next addition to this series but I do not hold high hopes, this game I have to say was a nice rental but I would never pay more than $10 for this game.

For the third game in the Naruto Storm series (4th if you count generations) you would think the game would improve by now. The game-play is exactly the same from Storm 2. Then to top it off Storm 2 was actually a step down from the first Storm game. In Storm 3, we get a lot of recycled characters with recycled move-sets and short unappealing ultimate specials. In the first Storm game, we got to do wall battles, jutsu clashes, free roam in story mode and longer more epic ultimate specials. From Storm 2 and beyond, all of these things were taken away in favor of online battles and new but very dull characters and repetitive game-play. I'm already hearing rumors about a Storm 4 which is inevitable, but lets just hope CC2 will finally listen to fans and make the necessary changes to make Storm 4 the true Naruto game fans deserve.
