  • Summary: The latest edition of the series offers a furious fighting game experience with up to 3-on-3 team-based gameplay, intense single player action and a wireless multi-player versus mode for up to two users all within the Naruto Universe. With eight interactive stages and 20 playable characters to choose from, gamers can take the battle outside the perimeters of the home to become the ultimate Hokage. In a new addition to the franchise, gamers also have the ability to create and customize their own ninja dream squads to battle opponents or trade player's profiles via wireless connectivity. To further maximize the character power-up feature, players can form different team combinations to awaken hidden skills that lie within each group. Depending on the combinations, special team based skills can be unleashed. Gamers can also earn power-up points towards upgrading each character’s attack, defense, chakra, speed and even special abilities. [Namco Bandai Games] Expand

  1. The play modes are all-new, and the team concept is certainly an interesting addition to the gameplay. Not to mention the absolutely unique dichotomy between the Hero mode and the promotion test mode.
  2. The three-on-three team battles add a cool level of strategy, and customizing your characters into blazing fast powerhouses is a blast. [Oct 2007, p.72]
  3. You don’t have to be a Naruto fan to like this game but if you are there are enough goodies here that will certainly not fail to please.
  4. Easily one of the best fighting games on PSP, and one of this fall’s strongest portable titles.
  5. The wireless multiplayer is a nice inclusion (especially since only one player needs to have the game), but anyone who wants a fighter with any depth should look further than this portable fan service.
  6. The Naruto: Ultimate Ninja games haven't been terribly ambitious up to now, and with little in the way of actual, original content, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes feels even less so.
  7. While Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes may not be as flashy as the PS2 games, it is a decent first step on the PSP. Fans of the PS2 titles will have no problems jumping into this portable entry in the series, though it isn't particularly flashy or as interactive as those titles.

    I don't think this has a spot in the Fighting genre, is dull and wacky. It feels very unfulfilling , i take the Clash of Ninja over this sub series ( Ultimate Ninja) . Expand
