Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles
Superpowered anime ninjas on a mission...or twenty-five
One of the hottest anime shows going right now is Naruto, which has already graced a variety of systems in videogame form - and done really well. While most of the Naruto games we've seen have been fighters, the latest title, Uzumaki Chronicles, takes us on the path of the mission-based action game.
In this game, you take control of the lovable orange-jumpsuited ninja Naruto and go on various missions assigned to you. As you complete missions, higher-difficulty assignments open up, offering different objectives and rewards.
While there's a good amount of missions to complete, many of them are simply variations on a theme - protect a wagon from bandits, defeat a certain amount of enemies, find certain items and so on. After a while, you'll probably want something new and unusual to come along. There's not much in the way of plot in-game, either - story scenes basically consist of characters talking about the current mission.
