  1. A fresh and inspired fighting game.
  2. Battles are fast paced and can get extremely intense; simplistic controls that are easy to learn but tricky to master; Captures the look and feel of Naruto perfectly.
  3. Ultimate Ninja transcends the Naruto fandom; those who had fun playing Smash Bros. or even the little known Power Stone could easily find themselves having a blast here.
  4. The gameplay and style will feel familiar to anyone who's picked up a Dragonball Z Budokai game, but to everyone else it most likely won't cut muster.
  5. Ultimate Ninja capably captures the spirit of Naruto, delivering a stylish fighting experience that's both easy to pick up and easy on the eyes.
  6. Pushes the right buttons but the uninitiated can bash away and still win, so it doesn't match the flair or control of a Virtua. [Feb 2007, p.65]

    If you're just a casual fan of the fighting genre, there are certainly better choices out there that would provide a better overall experience.

    I am a huge Naruto fan, and a huge fan of fighting games, but this didn't hold my attention, the crappy story mode, the limited amount of characters, and boring versus and mission modes, hold this game back from being fun. Expand
