I bought this with a low discount. I felt ripped off when I was in the launcher, as I there are only two graphical options, no default keyboard config(many ppl recommend to play this game with a controller). After I got a good keyboard config(guide made by ThillinaC), I launched the game, hoping to find my moneys worth. After the prologue, my feelings about this game turned 180 degrees. I wasn't a Naruto fan, but the story of the game won me over. I wasn't a fan of fighting games, but now I have more of those in my wishlist.
This game isn't a good PC port, but it has the steady 30 FPS, so you can enjoy this game that it's better than most expect. Like every fighting game, there are a ton of characters with different unlockable skins, each one with their unique moves. Even tough you'll most likely end up with picking favourites, picking random characters will show you that each character can win if you have the skill. The battles aren't about tactics as much as about timing, as the controls are the same for everyone, just the way the characters execute the commands is different, which makes every character interesting.
The story is so good that it makes the game deserve an underrated tag. For me it's up there with games like Mass Effect, since I've experienced many emotional impacts and catharsis throughout the game. It's all about the kid who turns out to be the hero that inspires five nations to believe in themselves again and fight the war to prove the opponent that peace in this world can be. The story can turn out to be enough to get a person out of depression.
There's also free roam and the sense of exploration brings many rewards. The missions can be replayed, along many bonus ones. There are a lot of extra battles, like tournaments and mission challanges, that make wallpapers be available for the desktop.
It's a great game, both in quality and quantity, but it's also a bad port. I won't complain about the graphics, but some texture models could have used an improvement. 9.3 is the score for the game and I(along many fans) look forward for the next game and every naruto game that comes after it(that's how much of a fan this game has made me)

Best Naruto game ever. Way better than the new one, way better than the previous one. I highly recommend it. You don't really have to be at episode 200 in shippuden to watch. If you plan on watching shippuden, I would start this game around the arc where the five kage meet, but if you don't plan on watching shippuden and just playing this game, this game is amazing. It does a good job of summing up everything if you haven't watched the anime or read the magna. This game managed to manipulate the fillers that everyone hated and turn them into something with very powerful emotions. Recommend that you watch the first 120 episodes of Naruto (not shippuden) before you play this game at a very minimum, though.

Basically any fan of the Naruto series and any Previous Naruto Games should buy this. The Game is great both online and offline. So much offered from outfits to characters and to the storyline. I can't see a single Naruto fan who wouldn't enjoy this game. 10/10

After I built my computer I was really excited for this, along with a few other games that came out on PC. Love it, and love the newer one as well. Despite it being a little different... But they are both fun games.

If you want to play part of the story, easily go for this one! Not a bad deal when it's on sale.
If you just want loads of characters, some of the older fields, and some other new variety. Go for Revolution!
Or just get the package deal on sale, and have fun!

This is a good game which suffers from being a weak port.

Before I talk about what I liked about this game, here are some issues I had with it...

- The game crashes for me on every other exit.
- The loading screens are annoyingly long. This was especially annoying while trying to 100% the challenge missions.
- Not enough graphic options.
- The game seems to use more resources when running on window mode. I had no framerate issues while running the game on fullscreen.
- Cutscenes. Too many damned cutscenes! The original cutscenes animated for the game were good but a good chunk of it is reused from the anime. It actually feels like the cutscenes were longer than the campaign itself.

Despite all that, the game left a good impression on me.

- The battle system is simple and easy to learn. The set of battle tips found in the start menu did a good job of explaining various mechanics. I think that a proper tutorial such as a practice fight would have been a lot better though.
- The game cutscenes (not the reused anime cutscenes) were done really well.
- The challenge missions were a good challenge. Some of them ranged from really easy to moderately hard.
- Large cast of playable characters. I wish it were larger though.
- Flashy moves!

The game was decent. It has problems that are common among ports but the production quality redeems it to a certain extent.

7/10

Very amazing game. Cut-scenes are really good with the Interactive Actions (IA) being my favorite.
A fantastic anime fan that will fulfill your Naruto obsessions. It is an exceptional fighting game with strong and weak points to boot. As a fighting game and anime fan I do find this a very exceptional game.

The good things:
+ Great soundtrack
+ Great game play
+ Most epic Naruto game ever released
+ The first Naruto game for PC
+ You can change the controls of the keyboard
+ You can use a game-pad
+ Multiplayer
+ Voices in English and Japanese

The bad things:
- Slow motion
- Slow videos/cut-scenes in some moments
- Not very good PC port.

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

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.

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.
