    This might be the first Naruto game in a long time that does something new, blending anime with class-based online battles. The idea may seem a little strange but it works well, and it would be great to see Bandai Namco build off this with other anime franchises in future. Shinobi Striker is well worth your time if you like the Naruto series and even worth trying out if you just want a new multiplayer experience to get lost in.

    This is a good Naruto game, focused on competition and customizing our character, but it needs more content and modes.

    Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker has both its good and bad moments. Unfortunately a lot of the bad moments for me was with the combat and constantly getting knocked down with barely anytime to defend myself when getting back up before the onslaught continued, but a lot of that I’m willing to chalk up to my own lack of skill. Still, the VR Missions are enjoyable once you learn the nuances of combat, but don’t expect to see me floating around the online lobbies any time soon.

    While it’s certainly not even close to being what we got with Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm, it’s still a fun and enjoyable game that surprised me quite a lot more than I expected it to.

    The new game about Naruto is something completely different from the Ultimate Ninja’s series. The mix of traditional combat and MOBA mechanics is interesting, but technical problems can’t give the right start to this spinoff.

    There are so many things I can complain about with Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, but ultimately, I can't help but admire the effort. It's not a cinematic experience like the Ultimate Ninja Storm games, and it won't take you through the story of Naruto or even Boruto, but when the multiplayer games work in your favour, it feels good, and unique. It's just a shame it doesn't feel good for long.

    This game shares a lot of DNA with the Dragonball Xenoverse titles but manages to falter at almost every aspect, with flaws in the mission structure, the combat, the way you attain loot and in the way that you develop your character.

    As far as Naruto games go, this is one of the best. It plays similarly to the Storm series crossed with Overwatch. Can't stop playing.

    This game is great, it's very true to Naruto and very addictive. Extremely immersive and just all around fun, highly recommend.

    Overall, the combat is good. It plays a lot like Dragonball Xenoverse. The visuals are nice, and the character customization is great. TheOverall, the combat is good.

The only issue is that the game feels like it needs more content, but that should be fixed, as there's going to be a lot of DLC coming out. Definitely worth the purchase if you're a fan of the franchise. Expand

    Naruto games aren't the most technical fighters out on the market. You won't find that you need to pour hundreds of hours into any of theNaruto games aren't the most technical fighters out on the market. You won't find that you need to pour hundreds of hours into any of the Storm series to master combo's and what not like other fighting games. The Storm series does well enough to be fun, and provide a decent competitive experience when it came to multiplayer.

    With that said.. Shinobi Strikers is not like the Storm series at all, and doesn't try to be in many ways. Combat is overly simplistic and repetitive. You will find that you have two main forms of attacks; Quick attacks and Heavy attacks. You can swap the styles of combat out for projectile combat, but it doesn't change much. You are greeted to a cool down system that is similar to what you'll find in MOBA's and Hero shooters. You get two "special" abilities, and then must wait for them to recharge with time. You'll find that using these attacks are 80% of the game.

    There is not much of a counter system in place. You can block for what it's worth, but the game is designed in a way that makes it useless. You can use a substitution Jutsu every 10 to 15 seconds, so if you use it around multiple players.. you are doomed to take damage and or die right away. This is a big problem seeing as there is a few attacks that are just overpowering, and can wipe you out quickly.

    The controls are.. passable to say the least. You'll find that the camera angles are wonky, and that your character often doesn't do what you want them to do. That's not to say they are so horrible that it's declared broken... but it definitely isn't good. And to be quite frank, it's a shame the controls are this bad in a game that is mainly focused on mobility.

    An "all online" Naruto game sounds fun on paper, but this isn't how you do it. It's a game that wants to be several things, and fails to even be decent at one of them. They put a fair amount of detail into customization and unlockables, and that seems to be where they got it right. Sadly they designed it so that you'll have to spend hours upon hours grinding out missions that are just attack and defend objectives on a timer. You don't even need to play the game to find this out. Just search up the achievement/trophy list and see how many of them are time consumption based. 1000 wins, 1000 matches in this mode, and that mode. It's a drag to think you have to spend this much time on a game that feels broken most of the time.

    Overall.. I am disappointed with my purchase. If you can, rent this game. Buying it and giving Bandai Namco your money for this lazy and poorly thought out game will only give them power to continue making games like this.

    Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker
    Just not fun.
    Are there tons of hours of potential joy in shinobi striker?
    Yes.
    Did I put tons of hours into this game and experience this joy?
    Absolutely not
    Infact this is more of a rant and less of a review, this is for the non Naruto fans like myself that see a competitive combat game and thing wow this could be fun..
    im here to tell you that it isn’t..
    now im not about to go into all the menues or even deep into what this game has to offer, there are reviews out there better than this one that does all of that for the Naruto fans…
    im just here to tell you in one mof my strangest reviews of all time that this game is just not fun..
    its bad.
    you sart creating your character with super limited options, though as you play the game youll unlock scrolls which works as loot boxes to unlock new weapons and gear for the different clases to really bing some uniqueness to your character.. but after this what is there?
    honestly not much…
    there is a missions arena which is in my opinion the best part of the game and actually decently fun, you can play solo or co op with up to 4 players.. there is voiced acted dialog, a great variety of missions and boss fights..
    its genuinely fun at times running the walls and dashing through the air…
    but as someone mostly interested in story amd world bulding this mission arena didn’t keep my attention for too long…
    and if missions arenas aren’t for you theres a competitive 4v4 with 4 different match types that are just awful…
    this mode is what had me most intrigued about this game.. what had me wanting to give it a try…
    they go for capture the flag and capture and hold with a Naruto twist… I high fous on traversing which does add a dash of fun.. but the combat here… it just isn’t satisfying…
    i felt mostly as if I were button mashing instead of playin competiivly .. though to be fair you can learn different moves and create different load outs for different modes to enhance this…
    but overall the competitive side of this game is just so unaccessable that it never got its hooks in me.. it never had me excited to hop back in when I would die… I never had the illusion of feeling like I was good at the game,, which is what I feel any good competive multiplayer mode should do… it should make you feel like youre making progress and youll have their number the next time.. but I just didn’t feel that here… a mixture of the button mashing, the awful camera, the enemy locking… I just fult frustrated trying to enjoy this game..Again there are better reviews out there than this one if you want a more in depth take on shunovi striker..
    but as a non Naruto fan looking for just a fun competitive game…
    I feel like shinobi striker is a bunch of unfun garbage…
    The mission arena saves this game from being complete garbage, but is nowhere near enough to justify picking this game up.
    I give Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker
    a 4/10
