Good

A little frustrating, but fun

I rented this game, because I love the Naruto fighting games. However, this game was just frustrating.

Pros:
- Lots of characters. There's 70+ characters, and they all have a unique skillset.
-Substitution can no longer be spammed, thanks to the substitution bar. No longer requires chakra.
-Goes up to the Kage Summit. Although the manga is much farther, it's nice to see them get farther and farther in these games.
-The Achievements are extremely easy to get, and can all be obtained through the Story and different Free Battle Modes(Survival and Tournament).
-The Story Mode is MUCH BETTER than Storm 2's. You don't have to walk all over the place. You can skip the cut-scenes and go right into the fight.
-Survival and Tournament are nice touches to the Free Battle mode.
-While doing a combo, if you do a Chakra Dash, you can basically start your combo over, and it helps to counter substitution.

Cons:
-Somehow enemies are able to turn around in mid-air and still attack you.
-Sometimes, substitution doesn't really do anything but just bring you back to where you were in the first place.
-I've played as every single character, multiple times, and still have not gotten the "Ninja Lover" Achievement, which is obtained for "Playing as every lead character.", which I have done.
-Somehow even through substitution, while they're using a normal Jutsu, their character will turn around and still hit you, while they were facing the opposite direction. Very frustrating.
-Opponent's seem to regenerate their substitution much faster than you.
-Some characters have alternate costumes, but same attacks.
-Some Ultimate Jutsu's seem almost impossible to hit(Taka Sasuke, Kakashi)

I would love to see a mode where each player can have tons of health and chakra regenerating slowly on it's own. That would make some fights a lot more fun. Less Chakra, more fighting, actual skill.

Overall this game is fun, and it's a must-get for Naruto Lovers.
