    Well , the big brother games from Council ( that are Clash of Ninja, Revolution) are very cool. But the handheld version really doesn't surprise me at all, for instance, when you finish the game , there aren't more features in it. Just a plain story with unmemorable moments, tho, maybe you get a nice use for the money. But in terms of entertainment, not to much ... just grab the home consoles version. Expand

    Naruto: Ninja Council 3 is not as good as the previous entry in the series, but that doesn't mean you should pass this game up, graphically it's not been improved upon since the last game but that's not really a bad thing, the sound is still just ok, controls are good, there isn't a real story mode which is a disappointment, it's just a bunch of mini games with the occasional boss fight in there so it doesn't get stale some of the missions are boring and some are pretty challenging, there is a good amount of characters to choose from and it's fun to see how different they are, all in all i would recommend this to Naruto fans, others might not enjoy as much.

    The game is ok enough to play but it really doesn't offer much. The story mode is disappointingly short and not very memorable. The control is clunky and some of the early missions are much harder than the later ones thanks to somethings that are broken like spamming attacks all people on the entire field. the game is playable but barely

  1. It’s a slick little pick-up-and-play experience, though sadly, it is a short one. The varied Wi-Fi Party mode almost would've made up for NC3's brevity... if it only allowed game sharing.

    Ninja Council 3 comes across as a game that was quickly slapped together just to get something Naruto-related on the DS.
  3. Naruto may be a simple and confusing game, but one thing it’s sure to do is make fans of the license happy.
