Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is a arena fighting game featuring many characters from the Naruto anime series. I've been a long time anime fan, Naruto being my favorite of course, so when I saw this game I knew I had to play it. The story has you playing several characters past, like Itachi and Sasuke. This can be a bit confusing and weird if you've never seen the anime before yet you still picked it up. For those of you who HAVE seen the anime there can be some spoilers depending on how far you've gotten into the anime and it can be boring for those of you who already know about the characters pasts. The story goes in a linear sequence of : Cutscenes from anime and battle. It gets very repetitive. Combat is good, having many characters from the anime with their own unique fighting styles and ninjutsu just like the previous games. There are different game modes to choose from like against Ai, tournament, or survival mode. Playing by yourself will get very boring so I suggest having a friend who also likes Naruto play against you. There is Online mode but don't trust it to match you up with anybody, as this game as come out for a long time and most likely most of the players will be playing Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
Overall it's not a bad game if your on a budget and looking for a good Naruto game, but I would recommend Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution or even Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 as those games offer more characters and interesting story parts.
GRAPHICS: Once again ,the graphics of the characters and environments are superb, with excellent shading for a authentic anime look. The cut scenes, (both the anime cut scenes and still framed pictures with voice overs) are also quite good thanks to Japanese animation studio Perot. I much preferred using the in-game characters and environments for cut scenes like in the second game but, it works for the most part i guess. The attacks and movements are also flashy and fluid in the battles with the Ultimate Jutsu attacks looking really cool.
STORY: Unlike the past two games,Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations doesn't tell just one story or even two interwoven stories like the second game, instead it tells small mini stories about several of the different main characters with each one lasting only a hour or less each making for a sadly extremely short game. While these small mini tales do let you control some really cool characters during some important events they sadly skip over other parts or entire sections that were on the anime and manga, like skipping over all but one fight of the important Chunin exams arc. I applaud CyberConnect2 for trying something different of course, but ultimately it pales by far in comparison to the way the story was told during the second game. one other problem i should and will mention with the stories is how they seems goes out of their way to ignore almost all of the female characters in the stories, with only two battles, out a large number of them, existing where you play as a female character. Even main character Sakura has like two or three lines and one battle.It not fair to the important female characters to be ignored like this, and im not sure why there are. Heck even the Hokage Tsunade is shown only twice, with no dialog at all..this was confusing and disappointing... hopefully this is also fixed in the next game.
CONTROLS: The battle controls are pretty much the same as the first two games with a a few exceptions. First is substitutions, which now have their own gauge giving you four substitutes to use, that can be recharged over time or with attacks on your opponents. This was a bad choice as it usually makes the winner of battles the one with more substitutes left on their gauge. Another change is to the grab attack. this time around only the right shoulder block button can be used with the attack button to grab and their is a noticeable delay between when you hit it and when you can actually grab for your opponent, which is annoying. Other then that, it's pretty the same one button attack that can be combined with the control left stick for combos as well as the other moves tied to the same buttons as before as well.
The real problem with the game seems to be the fact that Cyberconnect2 stripped away the open world environments from the other two games, and structured it so it's opening anime cut scene, battle,still anime frame cut scene, battle.. then repeat till you reach the ending anime cut scene. I'm not sure who at the developer decide to get rid of the fun open world areas and RPG elements from Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, but someone should have stepped in ad stopped them..although it could have been because the game came out less then 2 years after the last game and the need to cut out stuff to put it out on time... i would have waited another year or so fora true sequel but, as of this writing of this review Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is already on it's way,so time will tell if it's better, i certainly hope so.
Beyond the multistory lines, exist a number of free battle modes, including one on one fights, training, tournaments, and things like that where you can use your favorite characters from the giant roster of around 70 or so playable characters and 15 additional support only characters. Problem is so many of these characters are the same with a only a costume change and a different Justsu attack set, which makes many of them seem redundant..i mean so we really need like 5 slightly different versions of Sasuke? The online battles are also back, but it's not much different then before really.
Ultimately,you can break it down like this...
-huge cast of playable of characters
-fun battles and extra modes
-Well voiced by entire anime English and Japanese voice casts(though I prefer the English ones)
-being able to play through the same battle(s)from several different points of view is fun
-improved loading times
- waiting to unlock characters(although if you have the first game you get 9 character s unlocked from the start ,and 11 more if you played Storm 2, giving you 20 playable character from the get go if you have saves from the first two games)
-lack of open world areas
- extremely unfair under use of the female characters
-some of the characters you unlock are the same with costume changes and a different attack(with Sasuke being the worse offender with like 5 different versions of him available)
-extremely unfair and frustrating difficulty level for a majority of the story's fights( with some battles giving your opponents as much as +90 more attack power against you)
-game is incredibly shot when compared to the second game
-unnecessary change to the substitute mechanic
In the end, if your enough of a diehard fan of the Naruto franchise then Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations might give you some enjoyment, even though it's rather short and shallow at times, but for gamers looking for a cool fighting game, you might wanna look elsewhere. With more cons then pros though, i can't really recommend this game as a buy, don't make the mistake i did of buying it at the full price is is now.. certainly a rental is worth it, but not a buy. at least until the price goes down significantly. 3 and a half out of 5 is my score for this game.
