    It is sooooo cool, the chakra attacks really give the game a good flavor.

    For Naruto fans this will be a must buy. Ultimate Ninja 2 includes 32 playable characters and includes a story mode. In Story mode you will be playing through the Tsunade Decision arc and the Sasuke Retrieval arc. For those who are not fans of the series I would give this game a rent if not stay away from it.

    A worthy sequel that adds a ton of characters, and other features to an already solid fighter. Unfortunately, the speed of the game seems to go a little too fast.

    The game has an excellent story though some of the battles tended to be too dificult.

    Naruto: 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 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. Expand

  1. Ultimate Ninja 2 is still undeniably fun so all that other stuff is just ancillary. [July 2007, p.82]

    The story of trying to protect Leaf Village is engaging (albeit confusing at times), the fights look cool, and there's tons of stuff to unlock...However, I thought the implementation of controls and combos took away from the fun.
  3. By, far, the most notable edition to Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 is the plethora of new characters. If that sounds like it won’t float your boat, odds are the other minor features aren’t going to be the life preservers.
