Naruto: TBB is a nearly perfect game in accomplishing everything that it is supposed to do. It closely follows the anime series with only a few side missions, unlike RotN. The story line took me around 15 hours to beat, and I still have not completed all the other missions for the achievements. The new addition to a team brings the game into a different aspect. Also, there is several mini games that you could possibly spend hours on becuase they are so fun.
The online mode of the game is immensly better than that of RotN. I did not experience any lag at all hardly, which made it way better than RotN. Also, I think there is 25 characters to choose from so you can always mix it up.
Lastly, I belive the game is definatly a rent, seeing that there is nothing to do after you complete all the side missions, besides rank up in the online leaderboards. I gave the game a 10 becuase I believe that anyone who is familiar with the series, or is just looking for a fighting stlye game with a descent story line, will be satisfied.

I started watching Naruto on TV when it first came out, and many times has it come across my mind that it should have a video game counterpart. I came across it on Gamefly and decided to try it. I am so happy I did!?!? It starts off a little iffy but then as time goes by you can see practically all the epic places and scenes of the anime in the game!! The fighting is really well done, all the characters fight as they do in the anime. I kinda wish you could start a fight whenever you want, but there is so much else you need to take care of while you're not fighting that you never get bored. This is a great play, more stuff to do as you play on. But if you really liked the anime/manga, TRY THIS.

All together its a great game its a bit on the short side and some of the missions seem pointless, but one of the great aspects is the fighting, enabling you to use regular attacks and combos while also allowing you to use devastating moves and special abilities that are completely hands on unlike their cut seen counterparts.
