CC2 (the creators behind this game) are one of the individuals bastards to ever pull a Ubisoft move without behind noticed.
Lets begin the basic review from Strom 1 and 2 and then jump to my rant , Okay ?
Storm 1 - Storm one had great mechanics and features to be a classic Anime fighting game much like DBZ -BT3 but lacked smooth gameplay. It had a pretty basic story mode and the fighting mechanic was casuals level. Still , the game was fun, and you could play with all characters in any FORM you would like.. (you will understand the reason for the CAPS LOCK later..)
Storm 2 - didn't do anything new beside making a walking simulator with Naruto for hours only to engage in cinematic battles. The cinematic battles were great , much like the first. If there was one thing they improved is the smooth gameplay unlike the 1st.
Beside from that it had online feature will quickly made players realize how the combat was shallow and unbalanced. Add more to the negative aspect, the game now has no feature to play as the OP characters. By that I mean, the awakening form of 6 tales or curse mark Sasuke (for example) cannot be play explicitly unless you plan on taking damage only to use the form for 30 seconds.
Not only that, but they've downgraded on the move-list for all unique awakening forms.
One combo, one "special move" and no supers... yup that's right , no supers for OP characters.
The rest that comes from the **** Storm - nothing special, some new characters in every sequel downgraded from 4 combos to 3 (side combo removed after Generations). In no game you had the option to use more than one special move (unless you had mods...) and only in the 4th games the have included the feature to switch between characters.... WOW!!!
So how did CC2 milk so much out of this lazy work ? simple, half ass a "patch" for the online competitive players.
Forget about the anime community.

May 6, 2018Im a big fan of naruto and even more of the ultimate ninja storm series and now i can play it anywhere but the resolution is not 720 on portable mode the online its meh but i dont care for online and i hope that in the next few months they can bring the fourth title to the system until then i will keep playing the trilogy, awesome game
May 1, 2018I personally loved these games even before this version, but making it portable version was a great move by Nintendo. Also, if you look at some retro games (for example) for the Switch, they might cost the same and in this game, you don't have one, nor two, but three great games (With great graphics) in one pack for a decent price.
Apr 30, 2018Naruto Shippuden" Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy is good on the switch. It's runs great in dock mode and handheld mode.Story is still great even if you played it too death on ps3 or xbox 360 and the controls are perfected but, in handheld mode for me the audio from the game not loud.

Over all that's my issue if you never play Ultimate Storm I recommend getting it because who won't love playing as your favorite character from naruto on the go and it was a steal just for $40.… Expand
Apr 29, 2018This is a trilogy pack of the Ninja Storm series that will surely bring u 100+ hours of game time, do not be fooled by the Critic Reviews as they all focus on what changed from the previous iterations and what improved (obviously nothing major) These games are not remasters by any means, but rather a compilation of 3 great titles that were on last gen consoles.

These 3 titles in particular rekindles the story of Naruto (the anime) and it just works so well, I cannot understand why the Critic Review is low for such great games that people may not have experienced. Even if online isn't that populated (yet), you still have the amazing story mode to experience a whole bunch of entertainment, I promise you. For 39.99 it's definitely worth it.… Expand
Apr 29, 2018This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Ah yes, the storm games. The storm games as you know was an envolution of the ultimate ninja games for the playstation 2. Now here we are years later with the naruto series completed, and borutos legacy begins. The ultimate ninja games are THE pinicale of anime games, no other anime has topped it. I have played all the ultimate ninja games (PS2) and all Storm games (Xbox 360 and PS4)
Naruto Storm Trillogy beings the first 3 games to the switch. If this sells well, we might even get storm 4. No one really cares about storm generations, that game was just filter and used it to introduce new mechanics so that Storm 4 would be perfect. Now here is my quick review of the storm games.
Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 1 review switch
Story - Covers the entire first series
Gameplay - Simplified storm mechanics. The first storm game is the ONLY storm game that features an open world, similar to that of broken bond on xbox 360. So in a sence it's more RPG heavy of the storm games with it being required to do a mission twice to unlock the bonus requirmnts were as later storm games had it on the first try if your skilled enough. Those who never played storm will find that the combat is to get used to before you can truely master it's mechanics. There is a wallrunning battle mechanic on certian maps but this is the only storm game to do this... In fact it would be easier to say what was only to this storm game.
1. Full Open World were you can climb up buildings and wall run, the later storm games have open world but in an open world sence of an RPG were you cant really climb anything but can still punch, throw shurican and jump but its not that special compared to the first game.
2. Wallrunning - Storm 2-4 removed it complety.
3. Minigames - This is the only storm game with mini games like tree climbing and forest running, both with their own obsticals.
4. Justu clash - the only game were a chidori and a rasangan can clash and you can mash the buttons.
5. Battle intros were your characters would talk an intro speech before the fight.
6. Longer ultimate justus, they kind of brought it back in storm generations and 4 with the introduction of team ulitmate justus but for the most part the ulitmate justus were signifently shorter due to the character roster expanding.
Thats about it, the rest was the same for the other storm games. Such as the higlight of the storm games were in fact the boss battles and watching the amazing QTE (Quick Time Event) button press for an epic cinimatic and more highly exagurated than the actual show. Storm 1 did this but very little, the QTE in storm 1 were very short and the boss fights were not that impressive. Still, a very fun expirence storm 1 was.
Sound - Bandai re-uses a lot of their old sound effects for all their games. They reused the Voice Actors from the hack series as well as music and sound effects to the ultimate ninja series, continuing to re-use it all the way to the storm games. Yes even the final storm game re-uses them. Overall they are ok, could have used some different OST though.
Graphics - Been downgraded for the switch but still looks fantastic. On the PS3 those graphics were awsome, much more detailed than storm 2 when it took a graphics dip but a larger character roster. Overall they are great.
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2
Story - Covers the start of shippuden all the way to the end of the pain ark.
Gameplay - Same as storm 1 but with all those things that were exlusive to storm 1 were removed in 2. It has better fighting though, a bigger character roster, and most of all had the best QTE boss fights in any anime game ever made.
Sound - same
Graphics - look at storm 1 review
Naruto shippuden ultimate ninja storm 3
Story - Picks up the next ark all the way until the 4th ninja war ark and ends with a non cannon ending.... Because content I guess. Shorter than the 2nd game kind of.
Gameplay - it was defently overhauled with having a varity of new gameplay features (such as instant awaking with their own special attacks, true awaking, support types like attack, deffense or support, no more substitution spam with having only 4 sub bars, tailed beast awakenings, etc) with storm generations refining it and storm 4 perfecting it. Overall it had WAY better gameplay than storm 1 and 2. Oh yes and this was the first storm game to introduce DLC I think. Storm 2 may or may not have had DLC costumes, dunno cant remeber. It had a bunch of costume DLC and 1 additional senaro DLC of that fantastic sasuke/itachi vs kabuto fight.
Sound - skip
Graphics - was defently improved in the full burst version of the game. It was much more noticable in the improved QTE boss fights which they just made them even more amazing.
Overall this is a great game to play on the go (storm 1 and 2 were really grindy)
Please support bandai and buy this game as someone who played the original games.… Expand
Jul 9, 2018As a collection, the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy is a bit of a mixed bag. The games get progressively better with every game, but each still has their ups and downs. That said, if you're a fan of Naruto, there's no glaring reason not to pick these up. They're a fine set of fighting games, even if some are clearly better than others.
Jul 9, 2018Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy is a mixed bag; on the one hand, it is ideal for Naruto fans on the move who want to reconnect with three-quarters of the story on offer. However, on ther other, time has indeed taken its toll on the original two games so much so that it is hard to recommend them, especially as Storm 3 can be picked up individually for £16.99. If a PS4 or Xbox One is available, then it is strongly recommended to purchase the Legacy edition instead, which features better presentation and the complete experience of the Naruto story.
Jun 4, 2018Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy is fine for the most part. A sharp presentation and fun gameplay mechanics ensure that you keep playing for hours. That being said, the first game really shows its age way too much. The overworld structure and boring minigames really don't hold up anymore. Another problem is that the games don't do a good job of explaining you anything. If you are a Naruto fan, and can overlook these issues, you might find yourself happy enough.
