Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 – review (PS3, 360)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: This is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the hardest reviews I’ve ever had to do. I don’t normally deal with Japanese animated ninja kids who can destroy many acres of land with their magical powers and so on. My era was Transformers and Thundercats, not watching little yellow rodents firing electricity out of their bottoms and other pieces of madness from the land of the rising sun.
Xbox 360 Review - 'Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations'
3 June 2012
Summary: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations offers a vast selection of playable and support characters spanning every generation of the Naruto saga, alongside incredible online functionality to take the Naruto ninja fight onto the global stage in the much-beloved fighting series.
Conclusion: I have had trouble connecting to online matches. The people online can be tough as nails, so its easier to play against people at your same skill level. Experiment by playing with different characters and you will stand a chance. If a Naruto Shippuden Ninja Storm 3 comes out. I will be looking forward to play the next one.
Fighting game presented in a cartoony and fantastical style.

Summary: Parents need to know that this Naruto game is focused on fighting. The main "Adventure" mode does involve some exploration and puzzle solving, however the primary element of gameplay is defeating other characters in extended battles. While most of the fighting is fantastical in nature, including magical "jutsu" attacks and colorful light effects, it does also involve the use of weapons and more direct attacks like punching and kicking.
Conclusion: game and excellent anime-quality cut-scenes that play out the background story. Most of the “action” in the adventure mode has gamers delivering items or collecting them, and even worse, to move throughout the adventure, gamers have to constantly over and over wait for each little section of the gaming environment to load. On top of that, there are no clearly defined branching paths that gamers can see.
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 – Review (Xbox 360)
26 January 2011
Conclusion: The game teeters on if you like Naruto. The game was built for Naruto fans in mind and those individuals will extract the most fun from this time. The adventure game is a vessel for the story but is simplistic and gets old quick even though it has a long length. The fighting engine is unique and takes some getting used to and can actually be some fun but learning it is another thing.
Excerpt: The Nine-tailed Fox is a force comparable to a natural disaster. A single swipe of one of its tails can flatten mountains and reduce entire towns to smouldering piles of rubble. This is the same power lurking inside Naruto Uzamaki, a zealous young ninja who had the beast sealed away inside him when he was a baby.
Conclusion: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 exceeds its predecessor in many ways. A tighter story, better visuals, and easier-to-manage Chakra system top the list of improvements made since the last iteration. However, I can't help feeling like there are some major detractors here, including the loss of the free-roaming mission format and the stronger focus on quick-time events.
