Ultimate Ninja 4: NARUTO Shippuden

Video Game Generation
11 November 2009
  • Summary: Look, it’s Naruto . And it’s a very simplistic, poorly designed fighting game, of the type being derided by the gaming community several generations back (i.e. circa the days of the original PlayStation). Plus, it’s a total ripoff, spending a fair portion of its playing time and game design recycling pieces of prior series entries wholesale, without alteration. You tell me what that’s saying.
  • Pros: Umm…I guess if this were your first “, Ultimate Ninja: Naruto”, series purchase, you could pretty much count this as an “all in one” purchase – i.e., pay for vol. 4, get the better part of vol. 1-3 therein…
  • Cons: This game sucks. See review above.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 4

Playstation Illustrated
7 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 4 is the first Naruto game to touch on the Shippuden story and characters, but does the game do the license justice? Visually, the game keeps in line with the past PS2 Ultimate Ninja titles, which means both the in-fight graphics and open-world visuals are pretty good.

  • Excerpt: Okay, I’ll be brutally honest: I really don’t care about Naruto or anime at all. In fact, I find most all anime to be unappealing and even embarrassingly bad in some cases, which is why I always have difficulty keeping an open mind when I review the latest CyberConnect2 production. I struggle through long enough to write an accurate review, but I always dread doing it; I just fail to see the attraction in a bunch of poorly drawn, terribly voiced characters running at...

  • Conclusion: After experiencing Ubisoft's 360 entries and Ultimate Ninja Storm for the PS3, Ultimate Ninja 4 feels like a huge step back. The gameplay isn't quite as polished, the Master mode is a joke, there's no online component, and the graphics just aren't up to par. The bottom line is if you're a Naruto fan the only reason to check this title out is for the Shippuden license. Otherwise you can simply play the more current titles and just let this one pass.

Ultimate Ninja 4: Naruto Shippuden

Game Revolution
13 April 2009
  • Excerpt: ...Must learn ninja in- visibility. In my time watching animé and playing all sorts of games, I've never understood Naruto. The thought of ninjas running around – showing themselves to the world – wearing brightly-colored outfits just isn't logical. But alas, such is the world of the whisker-branded warrior, and I'm just a passenger along for the ride. And damn, is it bumpy.
  • Pros: Nicely shaded character models, Bland, repetitive, and outdated environments, Voice-acting is atrocious, Fighting is basic and uninteresting, No actual animation? Really? Why not?!

Spring Ahead, Fall Back

12 April 2009
  • Conclusion: With bigger, better, prettier, more developed alternatives out there -- even on the PS2 -- Ultimate Ninja 4 just ends up feeling like a cobbled-together mess of old and (unfortunately) mis-fired new.
