  1. Quite simply, if you are a Naruto fan, you're going to get a lot of entertainment value out of Ultimate Ninja.
  2. A fresh and inspired fighting game.
  3. The game is juts totally multidimensional; easily the freshest fighting game to come along since "Powerstone". [july 2006, p.71]
  4. One of those rare, fabled games that appeal far beyond the fanbase of its license. The controls are easy to learn, but thanks to the fast-paced action, the gameplay is difficult to master.
