We're finally treated to the third game in the Naruto Ultimate Ninja series on the PS2 in as many years and, boy, is it something. There over 40 playable characters in the game with an option to choose between English and Japanese VO. You can customize your characters with whichever ultimate jutsu you choose, you'll be able to turn some of your favorite characters into more powerful ninja and summon giant creatures as allies to help you in battle, interact with characters residing in the leaf village and accomplish over 55 missions in Ultimate Contest mode, engage in battle royale matches in 20 unique stages using either close combat or ranged weapons. The game itself takes place up to the Sasuke Retrieval Arc. It's definitely a bigger monster to contend with this time around.

Ultimate Contest is the biggest part of UN3 wherein a festival is thrown together by Lady Tsunade for the sake of visitors from the hidden village of Sand. The main event is a battle royal in which each ninja gets a crystal. When ninja fight, the winner gets the loser's crystals. The two who finish with the most crystals get to battle for the right to create a new Hidden Leaf Village regulation. You run around Hidden Leaf Village completing simple quests and challenging other characters to fights, which is somewhat similar to the game Naruto Rise of a Ninja(although UN3 came out long before that game did in Japan so, technically, it thought of the idea first). There are also a handful of minigames you'll be asked to compete in as well.

The game has top-notch production values. The graphics look simply stunning in this game(sometimes making you wonder if this isn't a PS3 game).

There isn't much that can be said bad about this game. Note, much that can be said.

First of all let me say that this is the best Naruto game for the PS2, yet. The gameplay is similar to the previous 2 but it is finely tuned and has a few nice little additions that make it really fun (for example, if the Rasengan and the Chidori clash at the same time then you get into a power struggle where both players should press buttons to win).

The Hero's Story Mode was pretty good, not great, but good.

Pros:
1. Incredible Roster of Characters
2. Solid Gameplay
3. Nice Soundtrack (btw there is an option for the Japanese voice actors)
4. The Ultimate Contest Mode, which is a new story arc (called Konoha Genin vs Jonin) only for the game :)

Cons:
1.Not THAT much of an improvement from Ultimate Ninja 2.
2.Hardcore Gamers might not be attracted by the lack of depth in the figthing system.
3.Short

Anyway I had a lot of fun playing this game, really enjoyed the Ultimate Contest mode and playing the new characters.

Overall, I give this 4 stars.

Take Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles 2 and combine it with Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2. Sprinkle in a huge character roster of over 40 and add in awesome ultimate techniques. That gives you Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3. It has a story mode that has bits and pieces of the story from the anime, and also an original storyline in the RPG mode where your ultimate goal is to collect crystals and wipe out the competition to put your own rule into play in the Leaf village. Everyone goes crazy over this and a variety of interesting rules are thrown out there, but on top of course is Uzumaki Naruto. It's loads of fun; there are many stages, more moves, more characters, and ougis; lots and lots of them. As well as items and level systems that let you get more special moves and you can also customize your own justu. With that, you can really be the ultimate ninja; it's just like Naruto Ultimate Ninja 2 but to a much fuller extent. It also has a unique Japanese voiceover system, not to mention the old collectibles figures ryo and videos. Much more of that this time around. That's Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 in a nutshell for you!

I've been watching my friends and family play video games since Atari and the original Nintendo (both of which I still have around here somewhere). I've always thought about getting into gaming myself, but I could just never get the hang of it ... no matter how hard I tried. When I read about Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3, I knew that I would at least get it for my boyfriend to play (and me to watch).

Once I got the game home, having checked out the games official website and reading the book that comes with the game, I actually wanted to give it a try myself ... and I did! The game is a lot of fun and a true treat for any Naruto fan!

I played four Naruto games from the Gamecube and the Playstation II thus far, (Naruto Clash of Ninja I & II and Ultimate Ninja II & III) and the best one is this one, Naruto Ultimate Ninja III. The game is updated with more characters (including all the hokages, including Yondaime) which can be unlocked throughout playing the Storyline of the game. There are over forty characters that you can play as, and so many more things to do. The environment you play in is more interactive, but some of the playing fields from NUNII are slightly different, but otherwise still awesome. I really enjoyed this game, which is more challenging than the last one in the series. If you are new to Naruto games in particular and own a PSII, than definitely try this game.
