Honestly this one is not as well thought out as the last one was. While Rise of Ninja was literally the "Best Way to Make a Game Out of the First 80 episodes of Naruto"... there are some things about Broken Bond that I could have lived without. This still falls into the category of a "Must Own for Any Self-Respecting Naruto Fan," but it's not as flawless as the pervious offering.
But there is some new stuff that's good. For instance you are given the opportunity of using more characters for the main quest instead of just Naruto. Which makes sense given the story, and makes things more interesting in both the quest and fighting gameplay. The fighting controls also seem to feel a bit less stiff. Also, they straight up give you the option of playing the game with the Japanese voice cast, which apparently for some people higher up on the Otaku Nerd food chain than myself is an absolute necessity. The basic mechanics of utilizing Jutsu to progress through the game, etc are still the same (which is good).
My main beef with this game is this:
In Rise of a Ninja each mission was different and was planned to help advance the story. With Broken Bond each mission is just a fetch quest with some fighting. And it's crazy repetitive. And after a while it gets kind of annoying. Like to the point where the word "insipid" isn't too far off. The context of earning the respect of the Hidden Leaf villagers helped to answer the question of "Why Am I Doing This Again?" in Rise of a Ninja.Read more ›
- The story starts at Orochimaru killing the Third Hokage (the tutorial) and follows the search for Tsunade and Sasuke leaving the Hidden Leaf village arcs of Naruto.
- The story mode is sort of like an adventure game mixed with puzzles through various types of minigames and missions. You can make teams of up to 3 including Naruto (He's always on the team because you're him). It's important to pick people who have useful jutsu's for outside of battle (Kiba's beast transformation and Choji's Ball are very useful).
- To perform jutsu's you have to weave the hand signs using the left stick for left hand and right stick for right hand (this isn't in the newer Naruto games, but I think it makes the fighting alot cooler)
- Ubisoft recognized that the American voice acting isn't exactly the best so you can opt to use Japanese voices and subtitles.
- There is so much to do in story mode that it keeps you entertained very well, however I beat the game 100% in under 25 hours. Still it is very fun.
- Since this game has been out for quite some time, XBL is rather dead (the only people who play are Hokage rank and are amazing)
- It's a very sped up version of the story and they alter some small things to make it be faster.
- I got 900G on one playthrough (the other 100 is XBL, which it's not hard to get to chunin rank which leaves the last 30G for some waiting for other people).Read more ›
