    The average core mechanics combined with some novelty touch-screen innovation makes a game that just feels too safe and too familiar. However, if you're a fan of the franchise or fancy a throwback to the days of property exploitation, then you can't go wrong with this title.

    There is not much of anything new on display here, but the traditional gameplay is part of the appeal. Whether you're a fan or not, Naruto vs. Sasuke is a solid action-platformer with entertaining combat, challenging levels, and a good amount of replay-value.

    Naruto Shippuden: Naruto vs. Sasuke is a good DS title for what it is worth. The story is quite short, but it does make up for its length with modes and extras to unlock. While the platforming and boss battles are fast-paced, fighting in the platforming stages could have been thought out more. Still, Naruto fans will enjoy the experience.

    I give props to Naruto vs. Sasuke for faithfully recreating the entire second season of Naruto Shippuden. Some stuff was cut out, but the main story points are here.

    Fans will definitely get some enjoyment out of this title, but it's going to fall a little flat for everyone else.

    As an action platformer, Naruto VS Sasuke is a fair and nice game to play. Its greatest flaw is the amount of similar titles on the DS, to which it doesn't offer anything new. If you're an unconditional fan, you'll still find a well crafted game, but if you're used to playing Naruto games on the DS, this may be a waste of time and money.

    There's nothing broken about Naruto Shippuden: Naruto vs Sasuke, but there isn't anything to make it stand out in a crowd either. You're better off getting your ninja fix elsewhere.
