[SPOILER FREE] Very, very good game - Not so good port.

If we were to focus on the porting of the game rather than the game itself then we'd get nowhere, as there's not a lot to say and not much of it good. So instead, I will focus mainly on the game itself from my experience with the Console editions, and later tie that in with the PC port.

So, as anyone who has played a game in the STORM series knows, it is the go-to series for a true-to-the-anime experience. Everything is there; the beautiful graphics, the original voice actors, the story, everything. Even the tiny details you wouldn't normally catch (Such as Tobi's subtle and goofy taunts), are present. It's really what the anime would look like if it were real.
STORM 3 was a massive step up from its predecessor, Generations, in that it took the new mechanics and elements brought to the table and refined them further, and over a year after release there are still new mechanical tactics being discovered or used in entirely new ways. There are more ways to fight in STORM 3 than there were before; many viable combinations of characters and playstyles. Although it seems at times that some are more useful or practical than others, typically it lies down to individual cunning to overcome what is ahead of them.
The story is faithful to the anime (Up until a certain point, however the anime hadn't got to this point yet so it's understandable), and really makes you feel as if you were in the Naruto universe. My main gripe is the endless chains of cutscenes, with no option to skip them all, as there is a loading sequence between each one. I love the cutscenes as they are stunning, especially with Full Burst's revamped graphics, but they lose their impact if you're replaying the story mode. It would be nice to be able to skip them all without loading up each one.
Aside from the main story, there are side missions aplenty, allowing you to learn a little more about the other characters in the universe that still tie in to the main story. Very good for anyone who enjoys the other characters and want to see more of them.
The soundtrack to the game is reminiscent of the anime and equally as awesome. No complaints what-so-ever about the audio, as it's been spot on in all of the STORM games and I'm a huge fan of each OST. (My personal favorites were STORM 2's "White hot battle at the summit" and "The Uchiha Hideout" stage music.)

Another reason people are drawn to the series is for the multiplayer. Sadly, with exception to the new roster and mechanics, STORM 3 did not bring much new to the table that was exclusive to the multiplayer, however they did take what was already there and make it just that bit better. For example, whilst there are now thousands of possible ninja info card and title choice to choose from, none of this is visible to other players unless it's a 1v1 fight. It subtracts a lot of the motivation to unlock these cards and then spend time personalizing it when there are only two modes in which people can even see it, and even then it's only for a few seconds before both players prepare to begin character selection.

As for the non-1v1 modes, Tournaments or Endless, Both modes had a new feature added, but neither of them were really that interesting.
Nobody plays elimination Endless (A mode where you keep playing until you lose, at which point you are kicked from the lobby) because people join endlesses to play mutliple matches with a group of people over a period of time, and being ejected from the lobby for losing, or having your opponents ejected when you win, is just like playing 1v1 modes except with a waiting list.
As for Perpetual tournaments (Tournaments where each match has two stipulations that affect both players), they can still be interesting, however the feature just wasn't taken advantage of. There could have been countless possibilities for different rules and options. They could've made it so one player is affected by one rule whilst the second player is only affected by the second one. They could have also added in many more rules, too, however you'll usually have seen it all after your 3rd or 4th tournament.

The Ranked mode has also gotten considerably worse; CyberConnect2 sacrificed a lot to try and keep the game balanced, and ultimately it went to waste as there are still the small stable roster of characters and supports you'll see in the majority of your matches (Looking at you, Kimimaro and Neji.) however unlike the past games, balancing patches have been brought out to try and quell this, however most players still stick to the familiar "meta" teams.
Disconnections (Or Ragequits) were an issue CC2 attempted to address, however there still seems to be literally no penalty for people disconnect often, as there are players with thousands of disconnects and people still play against them. Some people actually take pride in their disconnection frequencies now that they have no limit.
Essentially, CC2 is concerned about punishing legitimate players who accidentally disconnect, however that's exactly what's happened now; I'm still getting disconnects just like someone who ragequits. If they would just give disconnecters a loss and, or heck, even JUST give the other player a win, then nobody would be bothered by disconnections at ALL.

But not all multiplayer must be online - The offline multiplayer is fantastic. All of the tournament features are available for offline use, and with addition of Full Burst; there are plenty of challenging missions which actually net you some nicely-made wallpapers. Each battle has unique stipulations, which further begs the question of why they didn't include them in the tournament mode.

Another unforseen but very welcome addition only possible due to the PC port is the inclusion of mods. Sadly is there no official support for mods - yet (wink wink) - however the community has still managed to bring some incredible content to the table, such as unlocking characters that were once unplayable and actually caused CC2 to recieve a bit of backlash for not including. There are new costumes, new stages, new characters, new movesets, you name it.

Sadly that's where the good news stops when it comes to the PC port. On launch, the game was plagued with a terrible bug that rendered the online mode nearly unplayable. It took a rather long time to fix, but it was eventually fixed. There were also many crashes during the story mode, however one still remains as of writing this. It appears that CC2 is eager to co-operate with its community though so I expect that these issues shan't persist forever.
Another problem were the very high system requirements. Although understandable for such a stunning and complex engine, it was rather disappointing to many people that the game simply couldn't run, especially due to the very little amount of graphical settings available to the user.

With that being said, here is my conclusion;

+ Brilliant graphics.

+ Perfect OST

+ Faithful to the anime

+ Very easy to pick up and play

+ Huge and active fanbase

+ Mountains of content of all kinds

+ Community-driven developers

- PC port was rather disappointing

- Too much focus on a "balanced" online mode which didn't end up being balanced, often at the sacrifice of other, much more enjoyable features

- No official support for mods despite a thriving modding community

- poorly optimised

Overall, I love this game, and this series. I have put thousands of combined hours into the entire series on PC and consoles.There are definitely glaring issues or places where they could've really put some work in and made something incredible, however everything else that is expected of the STORM series is met in spades. I cannot wait for the next STORM game and can only pray that CC2 keep up their level of community interactivity and keep on improving on constructive feedback.

I recommend you buy this game if you have a gamepad.
What can I say about this game? Hm let us start with... The price.
So I got this game for $12 only because of the sale. You guys need to save your money, wait for the sale. Note yourself that this game can drop as low as $12. Don't waste your money even though this game is cool.
So about the graphics, the graphics is... Awesome. The scenery of Konoha Village is beautiful. Note that I play with full resolution (1366x768) and Super-Sampling is 2x.
So the storyline? It's amazing. You can feel the intense, you can feel like you are in Naruto's place.
Highly recommend you guys to buy this game. If you are a Naruto fans, buy it. If you want to be a Naruto fans but you don't want to watch the Anime/Manga, buy it.

The story mode itself is wonderful, the giant boss battles is fun, and in each battle they give you an option for Hero or Legend, giving some different fight scenarios which makes it fun to go back and redo the fight.

In the Full Burst edition, they're supposed to have Directors Cut cutscenes in story, but it looks exactly like the same thing from the first version of Storm 3, on the compare videos, they actually look worse to me.

Full Burst also gives the majority of all the DLC characters for free from the first Storm 3 game, except the Pre-order Goku outfit, and you can't get Hokage Naruto, however you get a new mission mode, which adds 100 missions to the game but... it's nothing worthwhile.

Free Battle fights on the highest difficulty can actually be somewhat a challenge too, but some of the AI just spams to reinact online mode, even though the combos in this game is so easy to do, however you can make your own combos (sorta) in the game and do some heavy damage but doing that is can make the game harder.

Online mode is so flawed that everyone just spams jutsus, and if they lose... they'll leave the match, and no, they don't get any penality for it. Most of the people you find online anyway, will probably have a poor connection anyway, making the game very hard to play.

The online mode is pretty much only fun if you have friends who have this game too and you can get mods to make the game even better like... combo customization, unlock characters that shouldn't be playable, model swaps, and texture changes.

I recommend this game to:

- Those who want to play the great story mode

- Looking for a simple combat system that is creative and can get complex

- Who want to play online with friends

- If you want to play with mods


Some problems:

- The Story mode at the end is not canon (It's not the true ending).

- Free Battle is missing some characters that should be there.

- Online mode is incredibly laggy.

- There is no penality against people who disconnect or 'ragequit' before they lose.

- The community is awful, everyone does the same thing, spamming jutsus and choosing overpowered support.

Suggestions in the future for Naruto to CC2:

- Stay canon obviously, why would they think that doing a fake ending was good? It'll only cause confusing in the next game.

- Include every character that is fought in the story mode, now I'm not meaning giants from boss battles but...
The Edo Kage, The 7 Swordsmen, Dark Naruto, Edo Sasori, Gin and Kin should all be in the game.

- Also, put more customzation into the game, looking through the files of the game, I found that you could swap jutsus and ultimate jutsus without having to choose the certain character, just like in the older games of Naruto.
If I want to play as Anbu Itachi and have Fireball, I should be able to, the jutsu shouldn't be locked to a certain outfit.

Well, it's certainly a pretty fighting game. If you like anime, you'll love this stuff, it almost ís an interactive anime.
Great over-the-top "ultimate" attacks with matching over-the-top visuals to show it off, yeah, the fighting scenes really look nice...

The combat controls take some getting used to, but when you get the hang of it you could win a fight in seconds. Mainly it's a 3d fighter, so if you're used to the 2d fighting games you'll have to learn some new tricks... No ducking from high attacks, but sidestepping frontal ones, and other such differences.

Apart from fighting solo, you can also fight with a team, and summon teammates to stand ine way a bit, or launch team attacks. Which makes a fight look pretty busy the moment all 6 characters jump around on the field.

The game consists of a Story mode, Free fight mode and online mode.

The story stays true to it's nature, which is nice, the only drawback I guess is that it's either full of spoilers if you really want to read/watch the manga/anime, or you end up skipping most of the cutscenes because you already know what's next.

There's also a few boss battles that require QTE's. Oddly enough they kind of make sense with the motion, rather than throwing random button inputs in your face, but they do detract a little from the action scenes going on. Either way, don't worry about normal battles throwing a QTE in halfway.

After completing the story there's a few extra quests to do and roam a bit around a few locations of the story.

Free fight has a survival mode which is nice to test skills with. And also has a mission mode, setting a few extra fighting conditions like losing power, getting poisoned by enemy attacks etc. Ofcourse there's also the mandatory quick battle.

Online Multiplayer seems to be a hit'n miss with lag, as with most of these fighting games... I guess getting a second controller and sticking to local multiplayer would be the best idea as long as internet can't catch up to these games.
Or make sure you know who you're playing with and both have a decent connection to play this stuff.

A fantastic anime fan that will fullfill 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 story of Naruto if you don't know it please do look it up for it is long and still ongoing. The game will move on this time around to the ninja wars and will cover pretty much the events leading to it along with some material that isn't canon (Due to the fact the show is still going on and the game was made before it was finished so they had to find an area to stop). Also after beating the game there are also points in the game that will revisit the past Naruto.

The music is Fantastic, the voice acting is right off the show, and the style this game is done in fits it completely. Very fun game to play if you are looking for something to kill time on, lasted me hours playing this at least more than 10+. Works best on a controller.
The game features the fighting system that was used in the recent Dragonball games. You have dash away, power moves button, item usage, and attack, charge up etc and basic buttons and that you can learn. If you master them they can be pulled off in very advance ways. Though some of the characters are overpower nevertheless you'll have a ton of variety to choose from, play single player but ALSO INCLUDES TAG TEAMS AND MORE GAME + Less dlc! WOOT!

+Great voice acting, You have the options of playing Japanese/English
I picked japanese.

+Many characters to choose from the series and also TAG TEAM INCLUDED!
+Epic Music
+ Some fights are really epic and flashy with Qte
+Hours of cutscenes and can be bypassed
+Overall Fun game to play
+Controller support

+- Argueably some characters seems a bit more overpowered than the others in fact they are and this is hugely debated right now.


-Online is ok but isn't stable if you play against those in other regions, lag can really ruin games
- Some of the parts of the games were completely unecessary, it acted like it was going free roam or you can explore a bit but its very limited.
-The non canon part ruined it lol

This is just a brief review of the game/product~ /人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst is the latest installment in the Ultimate Ninja series. Full Burst brings you a revamped of Storm 3 Cinematics and a New Chapter, a Chapter that enables you to fight against Kabuto at his Sage Mode, he can be playable after the completion of the chapter.

The game has over 80 playable characters, from the young generations to the characters of the On-going 4th Great Ninja War. In addition, 100 new missions has been implemented on this version that expands the gameplay hours due to challenging objectives. In addition, 38 Free Costumes, character outfits that were DLC's from the orginal Storm 3, which were worth more than £30 in total. English and Japanese audio is available within the game alongside with english subtitles.

Overall the gameplay is fun and entertaining, ain't hard to get grasp on to execute visually appealing combos. The characters has been re-balanced for the satisfaction of online play from the orginal Storm 3. The game does not end after the story mode, the all New 100 Missions and Online play is available for the challange. Over two thousand in game collectables are available to haul, from profile cards to titles, which can be used to customized your in game battle profile.

Verdict:
As a Anime fan i would give this game a 9.5/10 due to the justice it served on the original content as well for the Ninja Storm franchise.

However as a Gamer the game appeal to me as 6.5/10 due to the lack of depth gameplay mechanics, although this type of game isn't supposed to be complex, unlike Guilty Gear and Street Fighter which have more rigid and competitive gameplay. Though Storm 3 serves multiple objectives, it can be a gateway to a reminisence childhood or enter a whole new world of dedicate fans of animes. Or maybe you just simply want to enjoy to see Sasuke getting lariat by the Raikage dozen of times. *no offense to Sasuke's fans ;)*

NOTE: The game starts directly after the Pain Arc, no filler characters are in this game, only Canon story is implemented - summarization with 3D visuals, more than 24 hours worth of 3D custcenes.

In case you're not familiar with the Shippuden series and want to watch/catch up, there are roughly 200 anime episodes to watch in total, filler excluded, in order to catch up with the story in this game.

Watch Guide List:

Watch episodes 1-56

Pick up at 72-89

Skip at 90-111
