Excerpt: "Naruto - The Broken Bond on Naruto -nimiseen animesarjaan pohjautuva toimintaseikkailu, jossa ohjataan Narutoa ja kumppaneita. Varsin onnistunut ja hauska pelattavuudeltaan, jonka kruunaa näyttävä, sarjakuvamainen grafiikka.
Pros: + Ulkoasu, + Ääninäyttely, + Riittävästi liikkeitä ja erilaisia hahmoja, + Pelattavuus ja kontrollit
Cons: - Livessä pelaajia olemattoman vähän, - Yksinpeli ei ole kamalan pitkä
Excerpt: It's refreshing to see this much care given to a property I have no attachment to; all licensed games deserve to be treated like this. Ubisoft Montreal has clearly put in some effort into creating this game, which is a unique blend of rich one-on-one fighting and adventure elements in a larger RPG structure. Unlike last year's Naruto title, this time we get to play as Naruto and several of his friends, one of whom begins a journey down a darker path.
Excerpt: It's impossible not to be impressed by the effort made by Ubisoft Montreal in the development of its Naruto series. We'd be hard pushed to name another game that so accurately resembles its source material, yet we're not entirely convinced by what we've played. While it was easy to overlook some of the problems seen in the first game, the fact that the second is still rammed full with tedious fetch quests means you're going to need to be a dedicated Naruto fan to get the...
Conclusion: Playing this game was a pleasant surprise, especially due to the fact I’d never followed the series or really enjoyed fighting games as a whole. The missions may start to get repetitive after a while but the story more than makes up for it and the online modes can keep you occupied long after you’ve finished the game. It’s mainly for fans but give it a go and you may be shocked at how much fun you have.
Summary: The filler takes all the fun out of it, and I got tired of the one-on-one encounters with random ninjas and I swear I was looking for an “escape” icon so I could just leave and get the rare flower petals or whatever-the-frick it was that I needed to deliver before the story could progress.
Pros: : Original Soundtrack stays true to the anime, Online battles.
Cons: Too many side quest ubisoft! CyberConnect2’s Ultimate Ninja Storm makes this game look embarrassing.
Fears of an awkward sequel are laid firmly to rest alongside the Third Hokage...

Summary: Whenever there's a sequel to an adventure title such as Naruto: Rise of a Ninja you can usually bank on one feature: somewhere early on you'll lose all the powers you gained in the first game.
Pros: Looks like the cartoon, Authentic Japanese voices, Combat's been vastly improved..., ...as has the exploring
Excerpt: Naruto’s popularity has steadily grown, and so has the number of games that have come out based on the series. It seems like there isn’t a month that goes by where a new Naruto game isn’t released. Last year Ubisoft released a Naruto game called Path of a Ninja that incorporated fighting, platforming, mini-games, and small role-playing elements. Now Ubisoft has released The Broken Bond, a game with similar concepts that continues the storyline.
Summary: Die Geschichte rund um den aufstrebenden Ninja Naruto geht weiter. Schon Naruto: Rise of a Ninja konnte sowohl Fans als auch „Nicht-Narutaner“ überzeugen und daher verwundert es nicht, dass Ubisoft nun den Nachfolger „Naruto 2: Broken Bond“ veröffentlicht hat.
Pros: + Spannende Story, + Umfangreicher Multiplayermodus, + Schicke Grafik, + Glaubwürdige Naruto-Welt, - Kameraführung nicht immer optimal, - Steuerung gelegentlich etwas ungenau, - Keine deutsche Sprachausgabe
