Players customize their character's fighting style and recruit up to two support characters to put their own stamp on the action. Each character in the game is capable of unleashing powerful Awakening abilities under certain gameplay conditions, offering new traits and talents to the game's ninja roster of 25 popular characters from the animated series.

  1. Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm is the definitive Naruto game. The art-style is amazing, the combat is impressive and everything is put together in a nicely done fashion.
  2. Quite possibly one of the best Naruto games to come along on a next-generation console, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm is a solid fighting game for the PS3 that is true to the series. It’s a blast running through the Hidden Leaf Village and it’s quite satisfying to be wrapped up in major battles that fans and non-fans will enjoy.
  3. The game is definitely a solid exponent of the Naruto-series on the PS3, although some fans will be disappointed because of the disdainful synchro. On the whole, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm combines adventure-elements with thrilling combat-action.

    It's the best-looking Naruto game to date - it comes with something for everyone. [Mar 2009, p.65]
  5. For fans of the series, this is another great Naruto game.
  6. Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm really, really, really needs to support online fights. Publisher Namco Bandai’s last big fighting game, Soulcalibur IV, did it. There’s no reason for this not to as well.

    Too little bang for your buck. [Feb 2009, p.103]

    O melhor jogo do Naruto!
    Graficamente impressionante, a jogabilidade e as lutas são extremamente fiéis ao anime. Simplesmente fantástico.

    I was never a fan of fighting games, but this game gameplay is so fun, fast paced and deep.
    This game is NOT about memorizing tons of buttons sequences and spaming them in sidescroller-like arena.
    And it even has a amazing free roam town and a story mode. I LOVE this game, a MUST BUY.
    And one of the best looking games of this generation of consoles. Looks like you playing the anime, and is even more fun than watching it.

    The game is great & features amazing graphics at an amazing frame rate & it sticks with it's original story perfectly along with exciting combat.
    Here are a few things that only Storm 1 has out of the series:
    Super punches - it's hilarious when punching the enemy so hard that the game does a close-up on them as their cheek jiggles and groan and just go flying!
    Clashes - it's what partly makes this game unique from the others and it makes sense because people could use modified controllers for multiplayer in the other Storm games which is cheating. But it builds more excitement & fun in this game!
    Running on walls - send your enemies flying to the walls and you could go join and fight in the walls, it's awesome with the games camera angles, making it look like the Naruto show itself!

    Overall I love this game because of it's combat, cinematic scenes and it's boss fights, it really makes this game awesome despite lack of character selection.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. CyberConnect2 makes the most impressive use of Cel Shading technique to this day to deliver a fantastic experience for Naruto fans. With its excellent animation and fluidity, Ninja Storm captures the spirit of Naruto even better than the animated series, perfect for an easy going game designed by fans for fans. With some type of online combat mode it would be the perfect experience for the entusiasts of Kishimoto's manga. Expand

    Better than the second part at times, moving around the open world, running on walls, ninjutsu resistance and gorgeous ultimates
