  1. This game is pretty balanced: Action, tactics and dexterity team up with each other for your pleasure. There are some beat 'em up levels, jump 'n' run passages and a really long lasting appeal.
  2. Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3 finally brings this anime and manga series in the portable universe of PSP. The roster is huge, the new multiplayer options are quite delightful, but the combat system is too flat and button smashing-oriented. A game only suggested for the fans of the brand. Fans ready to touch the identical mechanics of the past.

    This is a big step within both the Ultimate Ninja Heroes and Ultimate Ninja series. 4 player battles? WOW! New game mechanics? This isThis is a big step within both the Ultimate Ninja Heroes and Ultimate Ninja series. 4 player battles? WOW! New game mechanics? This is unbelievable!!!! New story?? YES!!?! Well, the story mo... (ahem) "MASTER MODE" in this game does have it's problems. Pacing, and Filler (ie. do these unnecessary, uncanonical missions or you will never progress to the canonical missions.... wtf?). These two issues can really get under your skin but you'll get used to it, Kishimoto will get you to like it. Trust in Kishimoto and he will make your 10/10 to a "95" Full Review »
