    It's definitely worth a shot if your Naruto fan, and even if your not it's a satisfactory brawler.

    Naruto reappears on PSP with a suitable beat'em up with a mode for four simultaneous players. This option is by far the highlight of this release, a game which otherwise follows the guidelines set by previous titles.

    A better adventure than many past Naruto games have been, and its focus on highlighting the four-man teams featured in the show is unique and novel.

    Hardcore Naruto fanatics will buy this, but I would advise casual fans to save their money for something else. Even with multiplayer, Kizuna Drive just didn't deliver.

    We've seen a lot of good Naruto games and this one isn't one of them. There are problems with the fighting system, the graphics are pretty bad and the gameplay is way too repetitive.

    Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive contains a fun and original story, but everything else stands in the way of your ability to enjoy it. Especially during the story-mode, the game can be more frustrating than challenging. The biggest problem is though, that all of the unlockable extras, like more characters and new assignments for the Free Mission-mode, are directly connected to the story-mode, which makes them unavoidable.

    I've thoroughly loved and enjoyed every Naruto game there was. Normally, they're pretty difficult at times, but this, this has to be the worst. You'll be freaking your brains out at how difficult this game can be. Collapse
