Conclusion: releases November 4, 2008 and is rated 'T' for 'teen' due to cartoon violence and mildly suggestive themes. The violence is no worse than what you might see on Pokemon or the Naruto cartoon on the television. The suggestive themes I couldn't find. There are hints at childhood crushes between boys and girls, but that is about the worst of it. My 5-year-old godson loves this game and I can see why. There is a lot to do, and it's very eye-catching graphically.
Excerpt: Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja: Storm 2 surprised me. I was expecting a straight- forward, thumb straining fighting game. Imagine my delight when there were adventure elements like an RPG. The game follows the anime story fairly faithfully, which means the storyline is complex and interesting. As the story begins, Naruto has returned to Hidden Leaf Village after a three-year absence.
Excerpt: Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm (NUNS) is an anime based game about a ninja called Naruto and his quest. Although based on an anime cartoon it is not necessary to have prior knowledge to enjoy the game. The game manual is keyed around NUNS being a fighting game but the Ultimate Mission Mode has far more to offer with a selection of varied and differing missions.
Excerpt: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm is the Ultimate Ninja series' first foray into the 3D fighting genre, and it does so in a very promising way. When I first saw Ultimate Ninja Storm , all I could think was how amazing it looked. This being the first Naruto PS3 game, I wasn't surprised by this fact, but it still blew me away.
Excerpt: These days, you can’t turn your head in a video game store without bumping into another Naruto game. The long-running manga/anime series came stateside a few years back, and even an awful initial dub on Cartoon Network couldn’t keep the fanboys from flocking. Animated ninjas fighting other animated ninjas? Sign me up!
Summary: Armed with cinematic quality HD graphics, a next-gen battle system, interactive multi-dimensional battle grounds and a seamlessly explorable world, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm will capture the heart of any Naruto fan!
