The king of naruto games,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
If you consider yourself a Naruto fan, you should get this game. This game is far above all the other Naruto games out there. Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, starts off when Naruto comes back to the leaf village(The beginning of Naruto shippuden), all the way until the end of the battle with pain! The story mode is very long, with all the main battles included, and each of the main/boss battles are so intense and suspenseful, and in between each small fight you have with the boss, a cut scene appears and you have to press a button really fast. Then you fight the boss again except this time hes way stronger. During this game, you take control of Naruto(of course), and Sasuke! I also like the fact that this game is set up kind of like an rpg game. There is free roam, so you can walk around the leaf village and any other village, and go into stores and stuff. The graphics are also amazing. They are very breathe taking, and even more so when you get to explore the entire game.
Next comes Multiplayer. Many games like this fail when it comes to multiplayer, however this game shines in all its major aspects. First off, THERE IS OFFLINE MULTIPLAYER(2 people)!!! I think this is a great addition and bonus to the game, since for some reason a lot of games nowadays have no offline multiplayer. Also, THERE ARE MORE THAN 40 USEABLE CHARACTERS!!!!! You start off with a bunch of the characters unlocked, but the majority of characters need to be unlocked which is done by doing the story mode. Notable characters include, Minato, Itachi, Pain, and many, many more. This game also has online multiplayer(2 players). Online multiplayer is very fun, and there is even a ranking/leveling up system!
As with all games, this game does have its cons. The most important con in my opinion, is the online fighting system. Although it is indeed very fun, there are some people who play online that ruin others online experience. There are people online that: Keep spamming the same move over and over in your face, and Rage Quit when they're about to lose. This is very annoying, and i think in the next Naruto game, they should make it so that if you leave halfway through an online match, you will lose experience points and possibly go down a level. They also need to make the characters a little more balanced, because whoever uses diedara uses him just to spam projectiles which makes him incredibly cheap to use. But honestly, that's like the only main con in this whole game. Sure, there's always room for improvement, but there really isn't much that absolutely needs to be fixed.
Story mode: 5/5
Offline Multiplayer: 5/5
Online Multiplayer: 3/5
So if you are a Naruto fan, you should defiantly get this game. If you aren't a Naruto fan, you might not like it as much, but you can always go to your friends house to play multiplayer which is always a blast! Until the next Naruto game comes out, this game is the reigning king of all Naruto games.
