    Naruto: Suns 4 is the perfect evolution of a franchise that's been around for many years. With a huge roster, an excellent history mode and its spectacular play-style, this one is a game that every otaku must play.

    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a solid fighting game, made unique by the way fighters can be swapped in and out of combat and by the options that various combination of characters open up.

    Holy Ninja! This looks absolutely amazing! Cyberconnect2 basically took everything good about the series, and made it bigger, funnier and ridiculously more spectacular. It truly is a foolishly over the top game, and one that was obviously inspired by Asura’s Wrath, but it works wonders. Definitely the best chapter in the series. It really blows the anime out of the water, and is a must for fans of the manga. As for the netcode... it’s still a bit meh.

    I like the intensity of the combat, the visual design in the game and its faithfullness to Narutos story and universe, but it doesn’t hold my interest for more than an hour at a time.

    Game looks gorgeous. Admittedly I ought it looked exactly the same as the last gen from all the footage. Had seen. But when finally playing itGame looks gorgeous. Admittedly I ought it looked exactly the same as the last gen from all the footage. Had seen. But when finally playing it on my own HD tv, I can honestly say that the graphical improvement is minimal, yet noticeable.

    The trademark boss battles return in story mode, which brilliantly retells and captures the climax story of the fourth great ninja war. This is great because for anime fans who have had enough of filler, this game is a must play.

    Also with regards to combat this time around, types are now gone. Which means no more having to choose awakening, drive or ultimate type before a match, you have access to a characters entire repertoire. The disgraceful counter system that was in storm revolution has also been adjusted, now in only knocks away your opponent instead of stunning them. The new leader switching is great fun and adds new dynamics to gameplay and of course the number of new secret techniques and combination secret techniques are just incredible. They are visual spectacles of beauty.

    There's so much more to talk about, but what I've just mentioned is what I feel is most important. Online play is pretty much the same as it's always been, so I won't really go into that, few changes here and there but nothing huge. This is a must buy for all Naruto fans.

    As much as I love this series i have to admit it takes 2 steps backs with every step forward. The removal of instant awakening for characterAs much as I love this series i have to admit it takes 2 steps backs with every step forward. The removal of instant awakening for character switching is inherently a fair trade, it also eliminated support only characters which was definitely a loss. Graphics for this game is phenomenal as always. CC2 always prevails in that light however they're infamous lack of online support once again returns as waiting minutes for a singular match in a very slow searching system becomes very annoying to the point where some times I'd only have 5 matches in 1 hour. On the plus hand tho the story is absolutely phenomenal and while skipping out on minor details from the original it properly conveys the main tale in an amazing fashion, great graphics especially for Qte segments and large scale multi stage boss battles. Overall if you enjoy naruto this is probably the best game you could buy and even if you've never seen the show you can enjoy the story and fun combat (After all I got into anime as a whole from storm 2). Great game with some bad flaws for the storm series as a whole but an unbiased look would give it about an 8 Expand

    If you’re new to the Naruto games but not the Anime/Manga then we're in the same position and you're not alone, so with this being supposedlyIf you’re new to the Naruto games but not the Anime/Manga then we're in the same position and you're not alone, so with this being supposedly the final Naruto “Storm” game I sure found myself lost once again in the world of Naruto.

    Story: Story mode finally puts closure to the Naruto journey so prepare for a story mode with Manga spoilers, for me that’s a good enough reason to play the story – it moves the plot forward and finishes what the Anime is taking forever to do.

    As for adventure mode I felt this mode had so much potential, basically giving you the chance to learn about and re-enact most of the historic battles from the Naruto series, but it lacked due to the rough pacing. 8/10.

    Gameplay: The gameplay is amazing and that is probably due to this Naruto game being my first, I discovered first hand though that the online battles (esp ranked) was where the veteran players of the series were waiting – bullying new comers and eventually kicking my ass due to their experience from past titles but besides this I found myself enjoying the unique fighting system. 8/10.

    Content: Naruto seems to overwhelm us with content but don’t let it all distract you, the only worthy content I feel was worth the time is costumes, but I also discovered that the majority oi the unlockable content and Ryo (in game currency) quickly become useless, you can basically unlock almost everything after one solid play through of the story.

    Despite the great cast of characters they still managed to miss out a lot of characters which fairly disappointed me, the unlockable stuff should’ve been more costumes and characters but I guess that’s all DLC in this day and age, sadly. Will our games ever be fully released or will we be cursed with pre-order and season pass DLC. 6/10.

    Graphics: Easily the best looking Anime game out today. beautifully executed and well done, i can say much as this looks as good (or even better) then the Anime itself, the graphics will easily impress many. 10/10.

    Fun Factor & Challenge: Naruto is a fun game especially with its great cast of characters and even online battling was fun while it lasted. There wasn’t much challenge with the story or adventure and even the hardest difficulty of Survival and League were somewhat easy especially when you get past the games minor learning curve (for newcomers like myself). 6/10.

    After playing Storm 4, I feel I missed out with the previous titles but at the same time I was glad to finally pick up and play a Naruto game. A great game for newcomers of the series and veterans.

    Final Verdict: 8.5/10

    The story mode is okay, with slightly too much button mashing. Good cast of characters, but it doesn't make a difference really. The mechanicsThe story mode is okay, with slightly too much button mashing. Good cast of characters, but it doesn't make a difference really. The mechanics between characters are too similar. The old ninja storms used to have fewer characters, but with greatly differing mechanics. Some jutsus used to sacrifice hp for more damage, or apply buffs or debuffs. Now they just do a standard amount of damage, with animation being the only difference. I'd much rather have a smaller cast and better movesets. Still artwork is great, but somehow the animation looks kinda shoddy. Music and voice acting are awesome. Would say its not worth it's price tag, but is fun despite its flaws. Expand
