├Honest Review┤
Review is based on current state of game.

Game Pros
• 89-90 Characters to choose from (All featured in the anime/Manga)
• Bonus support characters (Non-Playable)
• In-Depth story following the Naruto Storyline
• Online play
• Online leveling system
• Various game modes (Story, Versus, Tournament)
• Tons of intense attacks and abilities
• Beautiful cut scenes

Game Cons
• Online play isn't highly populated, so it takes time to find a fight sometimes
• FPS locks at 30fps
• The Camera can very rarely get at a weird angle while fighting near walls (Nothing that lasts more than a second)
• Does not play well with Keyboard. Would highly suggest using a Steam controller/Xbox Controller

Relateable Games
• Legend of Korra
• Street Fighter
• Soul Calibur
• Tekken

NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 3 is one of the most amazing fighting games I have ever played. If you loved the anime and or reading the manga, I would HIGHLY suggest buying this. Even if you just love fighting games, and have no back story of Naruto, you will for sure fall in love with this game.

Time for a long essay about this game because that's just how awesome this is.

NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM 3 Full Burst is a game based on the manga/anime franchise Naruto (obviously). Since this is the 3rd game, it starts the story in the middle so if you haven't played the other games (I haven't) but you have read/watched the entire series, it's all good. This game just goes on the story from the part right before the Great Ninja War. If you are a Naruto fan, this is a guaranteed "You'll like this" game for you.

The game is a 3D style fighting game and you go can either go through the story to fight the battles that happened in the manga in the game. The one thing I like about this is that everytime a battle starts, it starts on the normal difficultly, but if you are having trouble with that battle and lost over three times, the difficultly gets lowered. I really liked that, caused me not to get stuck on certain battles.

The cutscenes are animated 3D models, and that is pretty amazing how they made them look beautiful with models, at the same level as RWBY, which is probably the best 3D animation(anime?) ever. The characters and voices were great (I think they used the same ones from the anime) and matched the story of Naruto overall.

There is one section of the game where you can play as Naruto's pregant mom and that part really cracked me up. Another thing is that everytime you buy ramen from the ramen guy in town, all your health and chakra gets restored. THE RAMEN IS MAGIC!!!!

This game is supposed to be on XBOX controllers but the PC version is also great, but has some problems. There are glitches in the game. Sometimes theres one battle that just causes the game to crash, or one specific move that will cause the game to crash. This is one of the reasons why I never actually completed the entire story within the game. One of the last battles during the Great Ninja War would keep crashing, so I gave up. (I already know what happens anyway)

I suppose one of the things I didn't like was the spread of save points. Some save points would be placed 2 minutes of each other while others are 2 hours from each other. That was one of the cons of this game since I can't play games in a marathon and I don't think I am the only one.

Overall, this game has its ups and downs but is a great game. It's also pretty long and hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks for reading this long essay. ^-^

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst is perhaps the most extreme example yet of Namco Bandai's attempt to appeal to the converted and only to the converted. Here's a game not simply for any old Naruto fan, but for Naruto fans who are completely up to date with the story and characters as they currently exist in the anime/manga episodes and are seeking a new way of experiencing previously explored plotlines. If you're not up to date, then not only are you going to struggle enormously with the story as depicted in the game's early stages, but you're going to ruin what you've not yet seen of the TV series. Unfortunately, due to gameplay that is as unwieldy and bloated as its title, Full Burst is not an acceptable way to get yourself up to date with this franchise.
his may be a beat-'em-up, but the primary Ultimate Adventure mode features so little gameplay in comparison to cutscenes and dialogue-heavy exposition that you'd be forgiven for thinking you're sitting through a barely interactive (albeit combat-heavy) soap opera. It feels as though developer CyberConnect2's plan was to create a condensed edition of the anime in which fight scenes are playable, rather than create a game in its own right. This leads to an experience that features such haphazard and irregular pacing that your principal cause for intrigue rests in trying to work out just how long it's going to be before the game asks you to pick up the controller again--and even when you do, the core combat is a shallow, button mashing affair that requires little in the way of skill. While there's definite and worthwhile value in repackaging the events of a beloved series in a new format, there's also value in a game giving you something to do.

There may be a lack of interaction in story mode, but that doesn't hold true for the package as a whole. Including all of the downloadable content released for the original Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja 3 release, the volume of content on offer is gargantuan. Chief among the additions is the extra Ultimate Adventure chapter, which sees Sasuke and Itachi Uchiha take on the nefarious Sage Kabuto, a segment that is so phenomenally difficult in comparison to the rest of the game that all previously learned tactics become essentially redundant. The same Sage Kabuto is unlockable as a playable character if you have the patience to jump through the numerous hoops to unlock him, and there are also some new costumes to swoon over.
he biggest, but certainly not most interesting, piece of extra content comes in the form of supplementary challenge missions. One hundred of these have you beating an opponent in a fight while handicapped in some way--removing your ability to jump, for example, or setting a limit on the number of attacks at your disposal. While these missions do add some welcome variety to the combat, they primarily serve to highlight just how shallow the core mechanics are. Without these externally shoehorned twists on battle, fighting suffers from an overwhelming shallowness that sees you engage autopilot once the basics become second nature. Only during set-piece boss battles are you asked to do something out of the ordinary.

To compound matters, the most members of the enormous character roster plays in the same way. You swap between characters regularly during Ultimate Adventure, but this is done predominantly to facilitate the narrative rather than to spice up gameplay through variety and diversity. Granted, significant and impressive visual flair is achieved by switching often between characters with attacks that are literally out of this world, but that aesthetic quality doesn't remain interesting long enough for the combat inadequacies to be forgiven. Clearly, this is not a game with the remotest desire to cement its place in the bastion of hardcore fighting game legacy, but that doesn't excuse the fact that there's so little meat to the gameplay that you're essentially feasting on elaborately painted bones.

Similar problems exist with Ultimate Adventure's role-playing-game-lite elements, which allow you to roam around a number of different environments with a view to collecting and buying items to use in combat (health potions, strength buffs, and so on) and optionally talking to loitering non-player characters. At times, these moments provide a welcome break from the cutscene/fight/cutscene pattern, but more often than not, they feel designed to artificially lengthen the game and trick you into thinking you're playing something with genuine genre-blending aspirations.
The closest comparison to this format is Asura's Wrath, another of CyberConnect2's offerings. However, where Asura's Wrath succeeds in this style of storytelling thanks to its short length and ferocious pace, Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 suffers from attempting to cover far too much ground for the core mechanics to handle. If you do classify yourself as a Naruto aficionado, then simply having another medium through which to consume the narrative is potentially going to be enough to satisfy you. Without a doubt, everyone else should look elsewhere.
