NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 3 Full Burst

I'm really amazed with how good this game is and it totally worth a shot, even if you are not watching Naruto Shippuden, the game itself it totally awesome and i am sure you will get a little bit curious about the Anime/Manga serie ( I'd recommend you to watch some episodes to get into the story of the game and make it more enjoyable) , the story mode start out after the battle against Pain (The Leader of The Akatsuki) following the anime/manga story untill the 4th great ninja war.
As a Huge fan of Naruto i totally loved the whole game story and the challenges in the game, there is lots of interactives scenes where you gotta make some combos to get things done and some beautiful moments in the anime that will touch you also the Ultimate Decision that can make some battles even harder if you choose Legendary mode and a bit easy with Hero mode, one thing that might disappoint who watch the Anime/Manga is the final battle that looks a little bit out of concept of the Anime, But i guess that it was a way better to avoid spoillers (at least for me) but nothing to worry about, the whole game is absolutely fantastic.

Alright let me talk about Pros and Cons :)

Pros: :)

Fantastic Graphics: There is a great visual aspect in the Battles and in the story mode, also very beautiful maps when you're walking through villages (I wish they were little bigger).

Fighting System: Combat system easy to learn, easy combos, Ninja tools to give you a little help and it's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED A CONTROLLER/JOYSTICK.

Lots of Characters: Lots of Unlockables Characters, Customized characters and characters supporters only (I'd like to see even more characters than that btw)

Lots of Unlockables: You can unlock Videos, Collectibles, Ninja Cards, Some Customizations Itens, Audios, Music and lots of other things.

Achievements: That makes the challenge even more enjoyable and a way harder, totally worth spending some little time chasing after them.

Cons: :(

Multiplayer Mode: At least FOR ME wasn't a really good experience, lots of connection problems and instability that made me give up of multiplayer mode for a while :(

Missions/Requests: Well, after I finished the game i've been completing request in the villages and it wasn't really hard as i thought but its still fine.

Crashes: I can tell that over here crashed every time tried to close the game and sometimes in the middle of some battle.

FPS: Well i don't know much about this but i've seen some players complaing about Fps, Feel free to take a look at the game's foruns to check it properly if you're worried about it.

Video Options: I'd like to see more video settings to make it run more smooth and playable for everyone.



I Totally Recommend NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 3 Full Burst ^^

You know how an Italian chef kisses his fingers and says something in Italian that translates to "A masterpiece" after tasting their own dish? That's how I feel about this game.

The Good:
- Awesome realization of a fan-favorite anime/manga, with voice-acting in both English and original Japanese
- LOTS of unlockables, including 80 characters and hundreds of music, audio, video clips and customizable features
- Art is colorful and detailed and stands as a shining example of a game adapted from a manga/anime

The Bad:
- *Very* cutscene heavy; familiarity with the series is basically a necessity in order to keep players invested in the lengthy story
- Many forgettable level-specific mini games
- Online play can be frustrating since some characters are very imbalanced

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is a solid manga/anime-inspired fighting game that does a great service to fans, but might have a bit of trouble drawing in newcomers. It's not really a stretch to say that this game expects its players to be familiar with its universe. Taking place fairly far along into the series' second major story arc, Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 jumps right into the story. The game does a good job of introducing characters and events, but I wouldn't be surprised if some people new to the series were to get a little lost in all of the terms and introductions.

The story mode is very custcene heavy. These cutscenes feel almost like they were extracted directly from the anime, which serves for a pretty cool and authentic experience. This is strengthened with the presence of the series' well-known music, which plays throughout the game's story and further immerses the player. However, similar to the anime, these cutscenes can be drawn-out at times, testing the patience of its audience. While there is always the option to skip these cutscenes, one should be aware that the game's story mode sometimes expects the player to be sitting for up to nearly ten minutes at a time, watching the story unfold like a movie, with little to no interaction.

Visually, Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is very colorful and exciting. The cel-shaded graphics do an excellent job of capturing the aesthetic of the anime, really helping to bring the ninja world to life. Throughout the cutscenes and in-game environments, Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 blends animated graphics with detailed illustration, providing a seamless picture that looks like it was taken straight from the anime.
Additionally, the animations of all the characters are very fluid and nice. General movement and specific fighting styles are all unique among characters and do an excellent job of giving each character personality. While the combat system itself is not remarkably deep, it still feels great to see and play as some of your favorite ninja, with most of the playable ninjas having their own unique style.

One thing about Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 that fails to impress is the multitude of mini-games and forgettable mechanics that the game tries to implement and then quickly discards.
The game does this multiple times with several different mechanics, introducing different mini-games that appear once in a level, never to make another appearance for the rest of the game. The fairly common introduction of insignificant mechanics lowered the game's overall quality for me, being a common but nonetheless painful mistake made by all sorts of games.
However, outside of the story mode, these mechanics are not present and do not affect the fun of the game's actual versus modes.

Aside from the story, there is also challenge missions which challenge the player to complete fights under certain conditions. Along with the multitude of unlockables, these challenge missions do a great job of adding to the game's replay value.

EDIT: Since beating the game's story mode about a week ago, I've played more of the challenge missions and done some of the side quests that are left over after the main story. They're actually really enjoyable and give you more opportunities to interact with your fellow ninjas, which is pretty cool. There's also a lot to explore - it surprised me how many places you can go after you finish the story! It does a great job of adding to the game's playability after the story mode! :D

Though Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 does nothing to revolutionize the fighting game genre, I highly recommend this game to fans of the series. Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 stands as a solid fighting game in its own right, but the greatest appeal it has to offer is the way it brings the beloved Naruto universe to life.

Very fun game.
I played a lot in local battle, and it still isn't boring. There is also a storymode (that I still have to play) and a very nice multiplayer with your own customized profile card. This game is well-balanced, since I could win with Zabuza from the Hokages and the Sannins easily. Also very fun to play this with friends or random online people. The hours I played is mostly the hours from local and online battle. It still didn't get boring.

Art-style/Graphics
It looks like your very own trusted Naruto. The graphics are pretty neat since it still has the anime style in it and the characters don't look very different from the original anime.

I hope this helped, and if you have any questions, just ask and I'll answer it as fast as possible!

Update after playing 100+ hours

Combat System

The combat system of this game allows a lot of freedom. You can walk around the battlefield freely while fighting the opponent. There is also a substitution system in this game, which lets you transport most of the time behind the enemy, however there is a limit to doing that which is 4. After that, it recharges after an amount of time. Furthermore if you ever get beat down, you can use your awakening to try to take the lead again. Some characters have the ability to awaken whenever you want (at the cost of your *chakra) and other characters get the ability to awaken when a certain amount of health is left. The 2nd awakening is mostly more powerful too.

*Chakra = it's a system where chakra stands for the energy your character has left. You can charge your chakra whenever you want in the battle and use it for quick dashes, ninjutsu** and your ultimate jutsu***.

**Ninjutsu = if you want to deal more damage than just hitting the opponent, all characters have a special kind of attack to offer, called ninjutsu. For example, some characters like 'Itachi' can shoot a fireball.

***Ultimate Jutsu = You are able to do the ultimate jutsu when your chakra fills up to 75% - 80% of your chakra bar. If you hit the opponent with your ultimate jutsu, the opponent will have a big part of his health bar reduced.

Truly amazing game, I played for like 4 hours straight, and plan to do that the next few days till it's done. Amazing art, great voice acting, solid animations, and if you care about story based games as much as I DIDN'T, then this game will give you an appreciation of them. This is the FIRST game to actually get me choked up while watching a 35 minute story scene, it's like playing the anime, it's great.

Everything in this game is just perfect, the battles , the story, the emotions, the characters, if Final Fantasy series count as anime then the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series are the second biggest anime gaming franchise that exists after Final Fantasy

If you are thinking about getting into the Naruto game series I think this is a good place to start. It has tactical fighting requiring you to use tools, dodge, block, and time your attack patterns. You success depends on making the right moves at the right time. It's a great game and I think it's a worthy buy. The cut scenes are extremely long and there is a long time between save points. That's the only thing I have to say I don't care for. But on the flip side you can skip all the cut scenes so no harm done. Recommended highly!

*Legend and hero difficulity are almost same difficulty
