Excerpt: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes is the latest effort in the blond-haired, fox demon possessing ninja’s quest to infiltrate American households. Based on the popular anime and manga, the game features Naruto favorites battling it out for one reason or another. The good news?
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is While Naruto, the ultimately popular anime series here in the middle east, slumbers on the television with unworthy fillers, he and his gang are ready to take on the gaming front of mainstream media.

Summary: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact is niet de topper geworden waar PSP-bezitters al maanden op wachten. De game biedt weliswaar bakken content, ondersteund door aangename graphics en dito voice-acting, maar het spel wist mij niet lang te bekoren.
Pros: Veel content.., Vechten tegen honderd vijanden.., Mooie graphics..
Cons: ..die helaas weinig afwisseling biedt, ..die niet bijster intelligent zijn, ..die teniet worden gedaan door het gecompliceerde vechtsysteem
