Naruto: Path of the Ninja

RPG LAND
25 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Naruto and his pals from the Leaf Village take to the Nintendo DS in traditional turn-based RPG style, a contrast from most Naruto games, which tend to be fighters. It turned out interesting, but there’s not much that will lure in folks who aren’t already fans of Naruto in some form.

  • Conclusion: When it comes to controlling the game, players can opt for full touch screen support, or use the classic D-Pad/face button setup that most turn-based RPGs use. It's obviously up to you as the player to decide, just don't expect anything extraordinary with either configuration.

Seemingly, the path to becoming a ninja is derivative and outdated

Pocket Gamer
2 November 2007
  • Conclusion: Naruto: Path of the Ninja may star a sprightly yellow-haired youth, but its gameplay is old and tired. Even fans of the manga are going to have a hard time choking down this stale piece of gaming
