    On consoles Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 was the best appearance of the beloved ninja so far. And on the PC nothing has changed.

    Full Burst is an interesting new entry in the Ultimate Ninja Storm franchise that finally arrives to PC. A must have for Naruto fans.

    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst is a great anime licensed game that gives anyone exclusive to the PC a chance to finally jump into the colourful world of Naruto.

    PC gamers have now the opportunity to try a great fighting experience, no matter if they are fans of manga/anime or not. The visual upgrade on PC is, indeed, welcome, and the extra contents are appreciated as well.

    Newcomers who persevere and keep on bashing away until they master the fundamentals will be rewarded greatly, but in all honesty, you might be best off tracking down at least the first NUNS game on PS3 and Xbox 360. For existing fans of the series, these are the ninjas you’re looking for. Network quirks aside, if you’ve got a PC capable of making NUNS3 sing, you won’t be disappointed.

    An acceptable game for the fans, though not a particularly good port in any way, shape, or form. If you have a 360 controller and love the series then you'll have a fairly good time, but you might want to consider waiting for a price drop.

    An awesome game for Naruto (in fact any anime)’ fans. I've been waiting to play a 'ninja storm' game on my PC for years and it did not disappoint me. Naruto fans "must" try it out........ Full Review »

    Ok, in a nutshell: WORST PORT TO PC EVER. Like, in the history of the world.

    Absolutely unplayable on PC. Every cutscene has a major FPS
    slowdown, with desynch audio and slowmotion graphics. Playing via keyboard is nigh impossible, and yet the game is really repetitive and boring as hell. It's basically a visual novel with interactive battles inbetween, and not much else to it. Oh, and battles are easily won by spamming jutsu or ultimate jutsu, chakra isn't really an issue as you can just regenerate it on command. Then, randomly, some battle would be made impossibly hard by making the player use some useless character with silly powers. But that's all, as far as difficulty goes.

    The plot is just a mashup of the main Naruto plot, therefore you'll end up skipping every single cutscene (and there's tons of them, inbetween battles).

    Seriously, I can't think of any serious reason why anyone older than 10 would want to play this crud at all, and even less on pc. Stay away from this "game" (it's not even really a game, because a game is supposed to entertain, and this one totally fails at that).

    voice acting is a piece for the love of god stop it with this half ased dubs in eu/us side, all in-game option are standard pc port meaning there barely any at least there is key rebiding, graphics are really bad, combat is kinda good, but i'm satisfied by it either. Anyway you would be better skipping this game out and checking the anime or manga Full Review »
