This is the latest in the Ultimate Ninja chain and takes place in the Naruto Shippuden era of the show, beginning with Naruto's return to the village and ending a little after Pain destroys the village. The story may not appear to familiar to someone who has only seen the American version of the show because it is farther ahead of the show's timeline.
The story mode has you a lot more involved as character then the last game. You travel and speak to characters and agree to take missions instead of last game's method of simply accessing the menu and picking a mission. This makes the story mode of the game more interesting and more interactive but it also means that you end up having to run back and forth. The map is bigger compared to the last game and you can travel to other lands beyond the Hidden Leaf Village. Unfortunately if you were looking forward to jumping on rooftops and smash open lamps for money, it's not a viable strategy in this game. This game expects that you have to stay on the ground. Another improvement over the previous edition is that you can customize your battle items before you fight in story mode. And, of course, the graphics are also a lot better.
The fighting style and controls are generally similar to the first game. This game comes with a lot more characters than the other game. You unlock characters by getting storm points instead of through the story. You get storm points by winning battles and completing missions. When you get a certain amount of points, you unlock a new character. The Ultimate Jutsu doesn't have the mini game any more but it is more difficult to connect. In awaking mode you are powerful but you can't use Ultimate Jutsu or supports.
Online is a new feature where you can challenge real people with skill and experience, instead of the easy-to-beat computer. You also have an online ranking that is based of the fights you win. Something that is a con to me, but you might like it, is that your power is based on skill. You can't get more powerful as you rank up, just more experienced.
To summarize, the one major improvement over the previous version is, of course the online mode. This should keep the game interesting for a lot longer than than Ninja Storm 1. Other improvements include: more characters, larger map, more complex story and better graphics.
My rating is 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5.

The adventure play I have mixed feelings about. I like the idea of an open world where you can run around the village, talk to people and all that. However there is a sever lack of things to do. Ingredients for bentos are easy to find, and not much interaction. I feel they could have done a bit more with the open world. I also think they could make the talking parts a bit more cinematic. Changing camera angles, characters moving around as they talk and such. The game lacks that. For the most part, the stand in the same spot and talk. Even in the Japanese Audio the lips doesn't match up quite right. I know this is a franchise game based off a show and those types of games always tend to be lacking, but a little more effort would be nice.
Overall, I enjoy the game. I have a feeling people into the series will find it much more enjoyable than those who do not. I think it would be cooler if they played actual scenes from the anime than just still frames with the audio. A fullmetal alchemist game did an actual anime for the cut scenes which made the game much more enjoyable (it was the only good thing really cause the game kind of sucked). They already use the original voice actors, so you would think using actual clips from the show wouldn't be so bad. I gave it a four because I enjoy the battle scenes, they have the original voice actors, has the Japanese audio, and follows the story line without the fillers. However things could be more improved to make the game more enjoyable to those who are not enthralled by the series and the world could have more interactions when you are running around.
