Excerpt: It seems like every time I review a Naruto video game it is different from previous video games. It has gotten to the point that I am not even sure what I can expect from a Naruto title anymore. Naruto Shippuden Ninja Council 4 is part side scrolling action adventure, and part fighting game. Sounds like a strange mix? Well it is. Many of the characters from the anime are included in this Nintendo DS video game.
Gorgeous action game, but troublesome controls mar play.

Summary: Parents need to know that this tough to control anime title is more likely to frustrate than entertain their young gamer. While the game looks gorgeous, the controls and sloppy programming make this seem like more a cash-in opportunity to market the Naruto brand than a way to create interactive fun for Naruto fans. Parents should also know that multiplayer battles are in the game, providing they have multiple cartridges and Nintendo DS handhelds.
Summary: Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4 allows you to play as Naruto and his friends in the next interation of the series, introducing a host of playable characters sporting their updated Naruto Shippuden looks, and wireless multiplayer battles for up to 4 players.
Review: Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4 (Nintendo DS)

Summary: There’s nothing overtly bad about Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4 . The presentation and gameplay are solid, its just that nothing is good enough to help the game stand out. There are noticeable elements missing from the game that would have made it better, such as Wi-Fi compatibility or a more complete story. Without these, the game simply fails to impress.
Excerpt: You've read reviews for games based on anime licenses before, and what do they all say? All together now: "Only good for fans of the show." I've even written those words in a Dragonball review or two, and usually that is just the way it is. The games are ok, but strictly appealing to those who love whatever they are based on. This review, for Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4, is going to be a bit different, as I am not really a Naruto fan.
Excerpt: is a lean, focused story dressed in a new wardrobe. Unfortunately, the game has become too thin. Wi-fi multiplayer, prominent in the original Japanese version, has been dropped from the North American release. Fans forced to approach the game as a purely single-player experience will find some of its hottest new assets locked away.
