Impresive visuals, shallow combat

Summary: I became a big fan of Naruto when i watched the first episode of the series in 2007. Since then i noticed that a lot of merchandising came up with this hit series. a lot of it where video games. As a gamer, i Know that 99% of the time an anime franchise is ported to a video game franchise, the latter will be a bad one. I like so much this series that i decided to break my own rule and bought this game. Although it wasn't a bad game it didn't live up to my expectations.
Summary: For some reason it actually took more than 2 weeks to arrive so I was waiting desperately for it to come but by the time it actually arrived I had to go on holiday so I didn't get to play it for a while.
Summary: My experiences with developer CyberConnect2 usually revolve around the now extremely iconic, yellow-haired ninja, Naruto. Making the leap from manga to anime and then to videogames, Naruto has made a serious impact on anime culture but usually his games leave something to be desired. Although CyberConnect2's previous Naruto titles have had a few problems, they were among the better Naruto games and were often very entertaining even for non-fans, all things considered.
Summary: I like this game... kind of. It's a great game for die-hard Naruto fans. But anyone else will be dissappointed by its repetative nature. You take on missions, which consits either of constantly reoccuring mini games or button mashing one-on-one battles. The mini games are generaly OK but feel abused and underdeveloped. On normal difficulty the combat is a piece of cake until the later missions.
Summary: -Gameplay is very simple and easy to learn (this rates good and bad), with pretty cool new features compared to older games -Character roster is very small, even when unwillingly accepting the fact that shippuuden characters have no part, a fairly large portion of characters are only available as support characters. -Story mode is well done and decent long(still considering the grave absence of shippuuden content!
Conclusion: The game has great graphics and is fun to play for a while, but after some time the gameplay gets repetitive and you find yourself always doing the same missions. the game basically has three types of missions; battles, tree climbing and tree jumping. the missions are easy to beat and you soon get bored of doing the same missions over again and going around town collecting scrolls, which i found extremely boring after a while.
Conclusion: look don't get me wrong this game is sick! but still there are still some propblems for example this is a naruto game there should be tons more cut scenes not reading boring text, also gamplay wise, mate too easy! one button attacks, constantly looking for scrolls, and various other items, the main good points about this game is that the graphics (if you refer to the anime) are one of the best on PS3 because it looks exaclty like the cartoon you cant really tell the...
