Unfortunately, this game isn't what it should have been.
-Still support only characters: Why? Most characters fight practically the same now, make everyone usable.
-No more wall fighting: Not a huge deal, but it was a neat flavor element
-Many moves turned into graphical variations of a fireball: kakashi's dogs, any of gara's ground attacks, etc.
-Almost no flare to the new characters: Nothing added to make the majority of them especially interesting, we really could have used expanded jutsu for everyone. Would it really be that hard to have 2 for each character?
-No improvement to multiplayer search function
-Limited subsitutions: At first this seemed like a good idea, but has been implemented horribly. 4 subs is all you get at any time. They regenerate, but not at any rate that makes sense. A constant, yet slow regen rate would have been much better than the "nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, regen to full in seconds!" rate they have it at. Matches become spam fests to break block or overcome subs. Have 2 subs while your opponent has 4? Youve more than likely already lost this battle: he subs your attack (3 left), then you sub his (1), then he yours (2), then you his (0), then he subs yours again (1) and you have nothing left, leaving you open to his assault. Joy! Throw in some team spam and youve got a match...or whatever. Also substitution takes 0 skill now, just hit the button once and youve dodged ANY attack effortlessly (ultimates, team ultimates, etc).
-Awakening mode also has been nerfed to [insert bad place]. Easy to dodge, power diminished, durations...tweaked. Seems more hampering than anything with the loss of your team members.
-Overall it's just a weaker game than the previous versions in everything but number of characters.

This game was good but not great. The one thing i found that was bad was the boss battles. The bosses did not have the cut sceans that were in the 2 one.
