Excerpt: A quick character like Neji can blitz his light attacks, scraping his opponent off the ground by chaining together the same rudimentary combo over and over. However, a similar approach for Sakura results in weak, worthless slaps. Only by hammering her heavy punches can you beat down the AI with your eyes closed.
Conclusion: If Naruto: Ninja Destiny had more content this would have been an easy 9 for me, but because there isn’t a lot in the game I have to dock it for that. As a fighter on the DS however it makes great strides in the right direction and if you’re a fan of the show or previous games, this is a great game to go check out.
Conclusion: But while the face buttons are sure to receive the brunt of your finger activity, especially with juggle moves, the DS' bottom screen will definitely make battles incredibly interesting. The touch interface is going to be home to six distinct icons that can be tapped to execute specials and summon-type abilities.
Conclusion: The controls are explained very well in the tutorial and after a few rounds of the game you won’t need to look at the controls anymore, because it will all become instinct. You have two different options of controls to choose from. You can either use the top buttons L1, R1, R2 (recommended), or you can use Circle, Triangle, and Square. The reason I recommend that first one is you’re most likely to be faster using the first set of buttons.
