Is This Really What Fans Deserve?
27 July 2011
Excerpt: Well to start this off I should tell everyone reading that I'm a bit of an anime nerd (just in case you haven't figured it out). That being said, of course I'm always excited to play the newest games based off of my favorite animes. There is a small problem with this though.
Excerpt: Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive has a lot of good points that make it an intriguing game, at least on paper. Unfortunately, the game's biggest mechanic, four-player teamed fights, has some pitfalls.
Excerpt: Although the internet in general is obsessed by fantasy ninjas, it’s plain to most people that the reality was almost certainly something entirely different. However the land of folklore is an entirely different beast.
Summary: This is easily the worst score I’ve ever given a Naruto game. Like I said in my intro, this isn’t because I’ve become disenchanted with the franchise or sick of Naruto games. I had fun with Shinobi Rumble , which also came out this year, and I still watch the show faithfully every week.
Summary: Featuring the most authentic team-based combat in the franchise, Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive treats players to a roster of fan favorite characters, an original storyline, and a new multiplayer combat system.
Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive - It's Never Ending
29 April 2011
Conclusion: Sadly, even the veteran Naruto fans will find this title to be a dud. You can't very well enjoy a beat 'em up brawler who has a terrible AI and boring battles. What you've got here is a title that had potential but failed. BELIEVE IT!
Summary: I'm inclined to think that making games under the Naruto franchise cannot be that tough of a job. The series as a whole lends itself well to a bunch of different gameplay elements, from fighting games to adventure, platforming, and even some light RPG trappings these all seem to work out well.
Excerpt: Toen ik deze game voor het eerst in mijn handen kreeg, dacht ik, nee, niet weer een 2d anime fighting game. Sinds ik alle budokai’s heb gespeeld ben ik het 2d anime fighting game genre een beetje moe. Maar tot mijn verbazing en opluchting is dit gewoon een kneiterharde brawler.
Pros: Cutscenes zijn prachtig, 4 player coöp
Cons: Filler verhaal, Repetitieve actie, Camera kan soms irritant zijn
