  • Summary: Set two and a half years after the events of the classic NARUTO series, Naruto fans are introduced to older characters as the storyline advances and unfolds with copious plot twists. NARUTO Shippuden: Ninja Council 4 also allows gamers to follow an older Naruto and his friends on the quest to save Gaara from the sinister Akatsuki organization. Players are able to choose their allies and form a three-man squad with special jutsu techniques to ward off looming danger. Dedicated franchise fans and new Naruto fighters alike can utilize the touch screen to unleash their unique jutsu attacks and take on anyone that gets in their way. As an added bonus, unlockable jutsu allow aspiring ninja to explore previously unreachable areas. [Tomy Corporation] Expand

  1. Obviously, Naruto fans will love this, but so will side-scroller die-hards and those who love the old 2D, left-to-right with giant, colorful characters business.
  2. Ninja Council 4 is a hard game to recommend true fans of the spiky haired ninja even with the cool roster of characters. Unfortunately, there are a number of problems that will not fail to annoy anyone looking for a good action platform game with plenty of that awesome Jutsu.
  3. 55
    Ninja Council 4 is – you guessed it – quite a lot like Ninja Council 3 was two years ago, and therein lies the problem.
  4. The lack of play modes in this title is really appalling. Just having the main story mode as well as a multi-cart multiplayer option is not enough to keep you coming back.
  5. For those of you looking for some type of classic 16-bit style platformer, I'd definitely give this a pass, as the experience isn't nearly as polished as something like a Mario, Kirby, or Sonic title.
  6. 40
    Ninja Council 4 disappointed us. The sloppy controls, ancient presentation and sub par multiplayer options will leave you reaching for another Naruto game. You know, one that's actually fun.
  7. The game also suffers from a lack of content.
