    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is another great entry into the franchise based on the popular anime. With content from both previous installments and greatly improved flow of combat, thanks to some minor but incredibly welcome changes, it's better than ever. The outstanding audiovisual collaboration is as always the icing on the cake.

    CyberConnect 2 made some changes compared to Ultimate Ninja Storm 2. There are no quick time events and no freely accessible areas anymore. Instead, awesome story-telling with never before shown anime material, a lot of fights and different characters – each with unique attacks – await.

    More than 70 playable characters, some terrific graphics and amazing animations, Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is a huge fan service fighting game and the most complete of the Ninja storm franchise.

    Easily the best Naruto fighting game to come out to date.

    Full of fan service, this one is for the Naruto faithful. It's competent and looks great, but if you're just after a good fighter, you can do better. The fighting genre is experiencing somewhat of a second golden age of games right now and Generations isn't quite one of them.

    It looks like there are only special strikes and crazy battle tactics in this game. Colorful, dynamic and spectacular piece is targeted mostly towards fans of the original manga and anime series. [June 2012]

    It's not worthless and there's actually some fun to be gleaned from it. [Issue#217, p.79]

    Naruto UNSG is a welcome 2.5 edition to the series. Fans of the series will thoroughly enjoy this instalment in the series as a collection ofNaruto UNSG is a welcome 2.5 edition to the series. Fans of the series will thoroughly enjoy this instalment in the series as a collection of the entire character roster to date, plus many extras.
    With 72 playable characters, and 15 support, this game boasts the largest roster in any Naruto game.
    Cyber Connect 2 have showed time and time again that they are dedicated to keeping to the source material and this is portrayed in UNSG as well.

    This is a day-one purchase for me, and I strongly recommend it to other naruto fans. Though many of my friends who aren't even fans of the show still enjoy these games.

I like the previous one, Storm 2. Now I like this better. Wanna know why? They have totally tweaked the game system into something better. They limited the substitution with a gauge which is good, to prevent spamming of it and allowing combat combos to be used more. Get this game Naruto fans! Even if you're not a fan, get this game, it's a great game. Expand

Starting with story mode you only have a few characters to start with and branches out as you complete each small story. These were very disappointing in that all it is is the biggest fights in each play through up to Danzo VS Sasuke. Each players story lasts around 3-5 fights and thats it, which again is very irritating. As for the 60+ minutes of anime that they say is new, it is in reality mostly clips from farther in the anime(those following the english dubbed will know what I mean), but there are a few new clips that were pretty good. The graphics have sadly stayed the same and are only alright in HD. Those who enjoyed the second game will like this one, but those of us who were hoping for another Storm 1 will be left wanting more... The specials which were already slipping in 2 have become even poorer in quality and tend to only last a few seconds. All in all it was a game that as a fan I could kinda enjoy apart from the rushed story mode, last minute specials, and average graphics. Expand

The fighting mechanics are mostly the same, with the addition of a substitution bar that limits how many substitutions a character can use in a fight. The only real problem with the game that I saw is that the developer really put a lot less time and effort into the story mode then in the previous installments. Where as Ninja Storm 2 had an open world that you could run around in, generation's story mode just goes from fight to dialogue to fight to dialogue with the occasional cut scene thrown in. All in all, the game is alright. Fans of Naruto are sure to enjoy it. Expand

    The graphics and managed more sophisticated than 2 storm, but I think CyberConnect missed his solo combat mode jeu.Le very disappointing, and in addition they were found cheating the title of Sonic Generations, which is no better, spectator mode they DBZ tenkaichi.
