    The chakra move sequences are by far the best part of the game. It's a fun novelty for a while, but the single player is not satisfying enough and the multiplayer simply not fun enough for me to be able to recommend this title. Fans of the show will absolutely lap it up, but anyone else will quite frankly be a little bit baffled.

    Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 is a pretty great sequel with a brand new "open world" story mode called "Ultimate Raod". Well, it's not actuallyNaruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 is a pretty great sequel with a brand new "open world" story mode called "Ultimate Raod". Well, it's not actually open world like GTA but it's such a breath of fresh hot air moving to place to place rather than watching the story like a movie. However the travelling in the game is quite tedious so if you don't mind that GG. The stor... *cough* ULTIMATE ROAD mode in general is very good giving you fun stuff to do and a nice replay value. The versus mode is much or less the same so meh. The controls are the same and the music is quite surprisingly soothing, jumpy and enjoyable. Overall, this game is a great upgrade from the original game, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja and consider picking it up when you see it. Full Review »
