I happen to be a fan of Naruto, the series. So I was excited to find out that there was a Naruto platformer where I could play as Naruto and Kakashi and the other characters and save the Hidden Leaf Village from destruction.
Unfortunately, the gameplay wasn't all that fabulous. It's repetitive and sort of boring with it's limited amount of combination attacks. It's pretty much random button mashing for the most part. The plot is mainly episodic with a very light over-arching theme. You really just participate in a series of missions, many of them exactly the same as one you did before but just a little harder. There's an ability grid system which is more frustrating than anything and never once could I utilize it without having to sacrifice something I wanted on it.
You never really get to play as anyone but Naruto. You can summon another character for a matter of seconds and use one of their special abilities, but it's certainly not any type of real cooperational setup.
But still, I got to be Naruto and that was cool. It was entertaining, to a point, and I had fun. The score would be far higher actually if I hadn't felt like I was trying to slog through it by the end.

I really like the game but, when you beat it you have to start over again but, you get Garra, Kakashi as a support, and a shuriken pattern. But when you start over you lose your stamina and health to 130, cant go to all the places, and do all the missions again. I am a big fan of Naruto and all but it got me a little angry. Also, some of the missions in the game are hard, like prisoner escort, and other stuff like that i think I give a good grade for this game.

This game i must say is pretty awesome its just that it so hard. in the second protect the cart mission you have to fight 3 huge ninja with huge hp five times across the boardgame thing and you have 2 minute and 30 seconds. whats the deal. and when your fightin sasuke and couji and sasuke and shikamaru they have so much hp each and they are so strong. if you want to get or rent this game you should be a great gamer. the 9 i gave it is the rating without the extreme difficulty.
