Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst (Multi-Platform) Review
11 November 2013
Excerpt: A few months ago, gentle internet ponderer Kyle Boseman said he doesn’t have the ‘soul’ for fighting games. Finally, someone understood. Through roughly 20 years of Street Fighters, Mortal Kombats, Guilty Gears, Dark Stalkers, and Marvel vs. Capcoms, a fighting game never grabbed me. They were classics, genuinely crafted experiences, that were impossible to get my head around for whatever reason.
Feel the Fury | Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Review

Conclusion: Ninja Storm 3 is certainly a fun game, mostly because the swift, simple combat is a blast to experience. However, it isn’t fun enough to warrant owning unless you are a true Naruto fan. The entire game rides on fan service for the series, with a vast majority of the game just being the story retold. It’s still fun to play, but most of the fun is playing as the characters you are already emotionally attached to from the series. Simply jumping into this game without any...
Excerpt: I have some mixed feelings when it comes to Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 . I've believe that the Ultimate Ninja line has been the best of the Naruto fighters for a long time, and while I feel that Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is still better than most other Naruto fighters, there are some areas where it falls short in the Ultimate Ninja line. One place it isn't hurting is in presentation. Both the visuals and audio of Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 are high quality.
Excerpt: Naruto has come a long way since the show and manga about an orange-clad, loud-mouthed young ninja debuted over 10 years ago. Though I once watched the show for its entrancing fights, the current run of Naruto Shippuden – its successor series – along with the latest edition in Namco Bandai’s game adaptation of the product, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 , have matured.
Pros: Epic boss fights, Strategic, varied combat, High authenticity, Plenty of replayability, Massive roster
Excerpt: If you like the Naruto series and have liked the Ultimate Ninja Storm series as a whole, this third game is a great addition to your collection. The game is even more cinematic than the last one, and this chunk of the series had one of the better stories I’ve seen or read in a long time. Unlike most anime-based games, this series stays faithful to its source material.
Conclusion: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 could have been great. It could have completely defied the expectations of an anime-inspired game and reached out to a broader audience. Instead, Ninja Storm 3 lives and dies with its anime and manga counterparts. And yet, for the Naruto faithful this game is as good as it gets, and compared to some of the dreck that other anime studios have pushed into the gaming world fans can do a lot worse.
