Cons: Simple one-button combination attacks, mini-games in Story Mode get repetitive, traveling around Konoha to pick up scrolls gets tedious, simple mechanics cause fights to be similar even when using different characters.
Comments: The Pros and Cons explain the basic gist of the game. This PS3-exclusive is the sixth installment of the Narutimate/Ultimate Ninja series for home consoles (ignoring portable and card games), and it does well to fit in. The control scheme is almost identical to past games in the series, changing L1 and R1 to teammate-assist attacks, and switching item use to the directional pad (forcing movement to be analog-stick-only). Ultimate Ninja Storm puts the series into 3D rather than the previous two-planes 2D system. This allows full three-dimensional movement across a battlefield, making fights seem more action/adventure-game-oriented not unlike the Devil May Cry or Ninja Gaiden series of games. The game is filled with tons of extras, from music and video collectibles to figurines and more special moves. All this is earned in the Story Mode by completing missions and purchasing items using earned in-game cash. Most of the missions are battles, but there are three types of mini-games that show up as missions as well: hide-and-seek, race, and chase; they are fun at first, but after the 3rd time, it gets a bit old. (There is actually a fourth mini-game, as a Boss Fight, but it remains fun).Read more ›
Plotwise, Ultimate Ninja Storm goes through about the first 135 episodes of the Naruto universe. It would have been better if it could have gone through the entire Part 1 of Naruto (about 220 episodes) but being that the English dub version of it is finally reaching its end, it would have been impossible.
The single player mode has modes ranging from fetch quests, treasure hunts, specialized fights with requirements (such as win the fight, while not going into awakening mode, and wining with one health bar or more remaining and perform 3 substitution jutsus). There are also other modes such as race up the tree (an aspect of the show which is for chakra control), in this case it is a mode in which you just race up the tree exceptionally fast, you can use powerups that cause fireballs to come down the mountain on your opponents. There is also another mode in which you face a giant boss fight (against a huge toad, Chief Toad from the show), and finally the other mode is that you get to jump from tree to tree in a forest. There are powerups here that allow you to get through the forest faster.
That is all that is to the single player experience. It is a requirement to go through about 60% of this mode. There are many more missions beyond that, but only the hardcore Naruto fan would go through it to get all the unlockables (character costumes, more jutsus, dioramas, music etc).
The fighting is the main aspect of this game.Read more ›
I liked the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm for its:
- great graphics
- easy controls when in battle mode
- big story
The only negatives I can think of is the somewhat long loading times and the lack of an online mode.
THE STORY MODE
The game follows the Naruto arc up to the point when Naruto battles Sasuka at the Final Valley but there are many other on the side.
You travel the Hidden Leaf Village collecting ryo and secret scrolls and other useful items while doing various missions. You get ryo by traveling the village, and smashing pots and paper lamps, or as rewards after completing a mission. You use ryo to buy items. If you find secret scrolls - and sometimes you will be using your mind powers or detective skills to find them, sometimes you just notice them - you can exchange them to get new jutsu (powers) for your characters.
After you complete missions, sometimes treasure chests appear in the village. These chests can hold some extra ryo, or new jutsu. There are also ingredient bags that are similar to treasure chests but hold ingredients. You can use the ingredient or certain items earned in missions to make ramen and increase your chakra (power).
In missions, you do things like complete a mini game, fight in battles or get items to a character. When you complete a mission you can get ryo, items, or characters. Certain missions cause for secret scrolls or chests to appear in the village.
The battles in the game make the player control the character easily and make the battle look epic at the same time. You can play as almost any character in the Naruto series. While in battle you can invoke support characters.Read more ›
