Conclusion: This game is not designed for new fans of the Naruto world, nor the uninitiated. Covering episodes 81-135, the game picks up in the middle of the story, and never attempts to explain what the hell is going on.
Conclusion: Overall it’s a good game, I like Naruto, I liked the story and it got very addictive after a while, it’s worth a buy, but only if you’re a fan of the first game or the series. did you like naruto, rise of a ninja? if you did...just, just be wary about this game.
Excerpt: When Ubisoft released Naruto: Rise of a Ninja for the Xbox 360 in 2007, it was a pleasant and welcome surprise. Rise of a Ninja was the first Naruto game to really venture beyond the borders of the fighting genre, and instead provided a light but engaging action-adventure experience that stood out...
Action-fighting game with risque elements & intense themes.

Summary: Parents need to know that this game is based off the Naruto cartoon on television. Naruto and friends battle enemies with an array of punches, kicks, and throws. Players can also use a dagger to throw or slash opponents, and can throw bombs. Some elements of Broken Bond are a bit risquu.
Excerpt: With three publishers releasing games on five different platforms, the Naruto market is more than a little crowded. Ubisoft took its first shot at the franchise last year with the Xbox 360 exclusive, Rise of a Ninja.
Conclusion: If you're a Naruto fan then Broken Bond should definitely be on your play list. Ubisoft's take on the Naruto franchise is every bit as good as its eastern counterparts, and in many ways I'd venture to say that it's even more so.
Excerpt: Ubisoft's Naruto: Rise of a Ninja blended a compelling mix of gameplay styles, gorgeous visuals and a ninja-focused narrative, effectively giving anime's non-fans an interactive entry point into the long-running series.
Summary: Last year's Naruto: Rise of a Ninja was a promising start to Ubisoft's planned series of games telling the story of Naruto, the brash young ninja whose anime series has millions of devoted followers all over the globe.
Pros: Gorgeous graphics, Fight modes offer lots of characters, English and Japanese voice tracks available, Compelling online ranking system
Cons: Story lacks momentum, An endless series of dull quests, Same simple environmental obstacles repeat constantly
