    This is without a doubt one of the best licensed games ever. It is impressively faithful to the show, and you'll be amazed by the beautiful graphics and the awesome battles.

    Namco Bandai has managed to do one of the rarest feats in the video game landscape. They have created a really good game based on an anime series.

    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja: Storm 2 is proof as to how far we have come when it comes to creating worlds of gaming. Even if you're not verse in the ways of the ninja, but still enjoy Japanese animation, this game will amaze you.

    One of the more gorgeous games I've seen in a long time. They've really captured the feeling of the cartoons, and playing the Adventure Mode -- at least in the less tedious portions -- feels like you're playing inside an episode of the anime.

    Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 is undoubtedly the dream game for any Naruto fan, and manages to capture the colossal battles from the cartoon better than any game before it. For non-fans however, there's a lot of backstory to go through before getting to the meat of the game. The fighting system seems overly simplistic at first, but then requires you to master it fully in order to progress, which might prove frustrating for some players.

    The combat can be slightly uninvolving at times, and the exploration side of proceedings serves little more than to connect one battle to the next, but the experience as a whole is surprisingly enjoyable.

    The story is full of incredible stupid clich├ęs, the dialogue dubbing is just horrifying, and there's not much that made me feel quite so embarrassed as my boss and a coworker walking in on my playing Naruto, in the middle of one of the titular character's strange and tangential rants.

The graphics were lively, the storyline had a good touch, and also, many new available concepts to the characters were created, which had changed a lot for the better. In addition, the 3D movement around the map was the best part, and assistance from 2 characters were even better in my personal opinion. Expand

    I bought this game when it was released in Australia on the 14th.

    This sequel has a lot of improvements, making it a deserving title to the Naruto games.
    Gameplay - - Much like the original, this title is fun, fast and has an easy learning curve for those just new to the Naruto series. For a fighting game, this one really delivers, making it easy for new comers to learn and fans to enjoy.

    Story - - Unlike other Naruto games, this one stays true to the original plot and feels like your watching the anime series. All in all this game is a fast action paced title and a great addition to the fighting genre.

The game is a perfect 10 from me, lag free online multiplayer, big list of fighters with their own fight style unlike many major fighting games, amazing boss fights and the list goes on, the game just kept impressing me. GOTY in my opinion :) Expand

    This game seems more like it is worse than the first. Storm 1 is my favorite Naruto game and probably will stay that way. Storm 2 has someThis game seems more like it is worse than the first. Storm 1 is my favorite Naruto game and probably will stay that way. Storm 2 has some good ideas, but they also tore out some key gameplay options that showed who knew what they were doing and the whiney babies who just thought they were good. They took out the button mashing witch is very bad.... The specials seem more like cheap last minute things just kinda thrown in. Online is fun if you find a player your own skill level. I like many others enjoyed the village in Storm 1, well they also tore that out. its a 2d form and all you really need to do is follow your arrow to the next mission. It only roughly tells the original story and in my eyes is missing some important parts. The only reason anyone should go through the story is to unlock characters. Up next is the boss battles. Remember those awesome huge boss battles in 1? well say good bye to those... While there are still a couple good battle(Sasuke vs Naruto) most are terrible.Just the few I have gone through anyone who still wants the game needs to be warned. The boss battle with kakuzu is just painful! I`m just a little past that so cant say much else.... For storm fans the game might be worth picking up.... BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, RENT IT FIRST!!!! YOU MIGHT REGRET IT. Expand
