    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.

    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations offers enough new content and changes that fans of the previous two games will find plenty of reasons to upgrade to this version and newcomers to the series will find more than enough to keep themselves busy.

    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 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.

    All the characters fight the same so I doubt its 70+ characters. This game really was just a DLC. So instead of upsetting their fans they decided to release this DLC just with new mechanics and voilà you have a new game. Not only were they cheap but they ruined the game with the new sub bar and the cancel system which seemingly turns this game into a game of cat and mouse. Whomever is the aggressor at the start of the game wins. It takes no skill at all. Each character only has 1 jutsu which is absurd. I can deal with the button mashing and the simplistic combos but at least give me the ability to do more than one jutsu. This game was a huge let down for me and I watch the anime and read the manga weekly. Hope CC2 can fix the problems. Full Review »
