    Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is an amazing title if you're a Naruto fan. The roster is large and while the new character count isNaruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is an amazing title if you're a Naruto fan. The roster is large and while the new character count is low, all the characters feel much cleaner and tighter. While in previous games a spamming tactic would almost always end in victory, Storm 3 is much more strategy and skill based online. Aside from online is a very cinematic story mode that has a decent length without doing any side missions. The story can be very slow and down right boring at times. This does balance with the fast paced and incredible boss fights however making the story very worth playing through as well as unlocking all the characters in the roster. Other modes include an online mode with tournaments, ranked matches, free matches, endless matches, and more. Offline one can also create tournaments locally as well as learn timing and combos in the expansive training mode. In the end this game is a simple fun game that you will love unless you take it too seriously. Full Review »

This gameplay, don'tUltimate Ninja Storm 3 is the new entry of the lucky CC2 series. The gameplay is "smoother" and solid at the same time. This gameplay, don't fix the whole battle system that remain unbalanced, favoring some characters over others. A lot of "key characters" like Kin&Gin Brothers are not playable. You will remember them because they have a particular kind of chakra, that will be used later in order to exploit a technique that is fundamental for the story plot. The Story mode, also if very enjoyable, ends with "fillers" and this could bother all the Naruto Fans. Plus, the roster seems recycled from "Generations" and the lack of new characters, like the swordsmen of the mist and the reanimated Kages don't explain why a character don't revealed in the anime is already playable. It seems that cyberconnect2's guys have preferences that go over the ask of their fans.
    The DLC bonus, also, don't justify this lack of contents.
