    How does it manage to be over too soon and still find time to recycle levels? It has to be witchcraft. [Apr 2016, p.92]

    The fiddly controls, narrow field of view and slow pace make this game much more frustrating than it needs to be, but it's built on solid foundations. [Apr 2016, p.90]

    Fans will love how Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 captures the look and carnage of Naruto's anime battling, but it's too restrictive and repetitive to convince as a standalone fighting game. [Apr 2016, p.89]

    • 60 Critic Score
    The basics are just a little too basic to make the delightful presentation anything other than a distraction. [Apr 2016, p.85]
