I think this game is fun But it could use some more characters and more moves. Pros, the special move are fun and easy to do, the graphic or cool, the voices are good, Cons, 2d background, its hard, it hard to generate chakura, the moves are the same, over all, this is a good game of you like naruto but its not the best fighting game.

If youve evr played an anime fighter then you know how horrible they can be. they feel blockish and generic. Ultimate ninja changes all of that. with and all-star cast based on one of the best selling mangas and animes around this game delivers. this game actually encourages you to play with an easy-to-pick-up control system and a hard to master challenge. this game, with an easy control scheme, actually feels like your inside the anime iwht its beautifully designed backgrounds and cell-shaded graphics that give it that cartoon look and to top it off it has soud effect words to give it a squeaky clean cartton look. the only problems i could find in this game was the lack of Jiraiya and tsunade. but if you love fighters like Super Smash bros then this is the game for you,
Being a huge Naruto fan I was excited to see this game was in stock with no wait. Naturally it was number one on my game Q. This was the first game I relieved upon joining GameFly and It was also my first disappointment. The game is undeniably fun for the first few hours of gaming. Unfortunately the fun stops there. Starting off the game you will most likely go straight to the story mode which will walk you through(with a few discrepancies)the story mode up until the invasion of Konoha. While this can be fun it ends soon. There are roughly 6 fights per character so you'll move past the story mode in a matter of hours due to the low difficulty of the game.
Next come mission mode. BORING. Fighter one round battles with an objective is all there is to this. Objectives range from throwing you opponent 3 times to throwing your opponent 6 times. It is repetitive and boring. If you have Neji and Orochimaru unlocked you will breeze through all of these within 2 days. Next comes the collectibles. You put money in a gumball machine which is so boring you will find yourself changing the channel on your television and pressing X over and over again.
All in all this game is fun for a while and if you have the 2 game option get it so you can spread out the fun for a while. If you only get one game at a time don't waste it on Naruto Ultimate Ninja.
P.S. Naruto Uzumaki chronicles will be released later this year. It's an action RPG much in the same style as Legend Of Zelda. This game looks AWESOME!!!!
