Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Review (Namco Bandai Games)

What It Is

Naruto Shippuden; Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is the latest game based on the anime series, Naruto Shippuden, and fans of the games are calling it one of the best.

Is It Fun?

The game has beautiful graphics and an action-based, interesting story. There are flying ninja warriors, giant wolf monsters with nine tails and a mysterious caped man…and that’s just in the game’s playable prologue.

This is a fighting game, however, in the Ultimate Adventure mode, players will journey from fight to fight through the unfolding story. In the fights, the game uses a simple control system for fast and responsive battling.

The Free Battle mode allows players to jump right to battles. Battles can be fought with one-player against the computer, two people against each other or Online tournaments for up to 8 people.

Who It’s For

Ninja Storm 3 is for Naruto fans, who range in age from kids through adults. The game is rated T for Teen because of blood and violence but we didn’t notice any blood and the violence is fairly tame, cartoon-like fighting.

As far as difficulty, most kids ages 10 and up should be able to play it.

What To Be Aware Of

The third mode is an Online Battle Mode that allows people to battle against other players around the world.
