Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Review

Posted by Natalie Robinson
Tags: Naruto, Opinion, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360,

The day we’ve all been waiting for, the official North American release date of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is here! Saiyan Island’s exciting Storm 3 journey started several months ago with a small June 20, 2012 rumor. We hoped for it, we prayed for it, but couldn’t believe CyberConnect2′s latest masterpiece could be released just a year after their previous Naruto title, Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations. Our hopes became a reality on June 24, 2012 with a Shonen Jump confirmation and since then we’ve been all over the game, obsessed to know the latest as soon as it breaks!

So after all this anticipation, how does Storm 3 fare in Saiyan island’s eyes? Check out out Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 review below!

What We Love:
+ Fantastic cinematic sequences to retell the events of the Five Kage Summit and 4th Great Ninja War.
+ Tournament mode improved with exciting battle conditions (example)
+ Multiple costumes for a good majority of the roster
+ New jutsus in the form of awakening actions for the majority of roster (example)
+ 40 stages, the biggest in the Storm series (example)
+ Playable Characters: Madara Uchiha, Nagato, Rinnegan Tobi, Seven Jinchuriki
+ Instant awakening is extremely, extremely gratifying
+ New ring outs feature are a nice addition! Gives variety to stages as some have it and some don’t.
+ Original English and Japanese voices from the anime series (example)
+ Impressive soundtrack with new tunes mixed in with old Storm favorites (example)
+ Phenomenal graphics! The Storm series has blurred the line between anime and game forever! (example)
+ Online mode is back and better than ever for unlimited replay value. (example)
+ Diverse gameplay to keep the experience fresh from start to finish. Free battles, exploration, hack and slash, and quick time events (watch walkthrough)

What We Dislike:
- Lack of Swordsmen, Kinkaku/Ginkaku, 4 Edo Kage as playable characters
- Story mode ending is different from events in manga, which is still in progress.
- Ultimate Jutsu finish with secret factor: They’re phenomenal at first, but get repetitive and give rage quitters a few extra seconds to quit online matches.

Closing Comments:
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is by far the best anime game to ever be released! A few flaws keep Storm 3 from being the perfection most Naruto fans thought it could be, but the positives heavily outweigh the negatives. Newcomers and our fellow Naruto enthusiasts will love it in all it’s hot-blooded glory! Saiyan Island expects to be enjoying this great adventure fighter for a long, long time!

REVIEW SCORE: 9.7 / 10

  • http://twitter.com/crooktj Tom Crook

    Its a must buy, anime games don’t come around too often and with such a deep and well game made for naruto, any naruto fan would be silly not to buy cuz there wasn’t a few characters put in that they hoped for

  • http://www.facebook.com/hiei.superdeadlyking Hiei Superdeadlyking

    impressive i just want cc2 to freaking tell us why they removed a combo, removed stages but other than that a good game still, the roster doesn’t bother me that much lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/vincent.duong.505 Vincent Duong

    I really hoping the next storm game won’t be a next gen console exclusive.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Br1Japa Bruno De Araujo

    poderia ser 10/10 com os Edo kages

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=676225630 Δημήτριος Γλύκας

    me too bro

  • TrueAvenger

    i agree with this review but its a must buy game

  • http://twitter.com/ShinXIV Grayson Such

    Great review! Really looking forward to picking this up today. I actually kind of hope the next gen Naruto fighter IS exclusive to a console, alot more time and love would go into it. Remember how Storm 1 had intros unique to certain characters, jutsu clashes, etc.

  • ichigokun

    Loved the review! I liked that you made it into a list with videos! I’m getting my copy in an hour as soon as GameStop opens!!!

  • Jojo

    i would add a minus for the majority of characters not having a movement update/ultimate jutsu

  • angry potato

    the game is very great no doubt tho. but i’ve experienced alot of frame rate drop in free battle. specially when using supports characters. they already made it and nothing can help..

  • DEX0N

    Seven Swordsmen, Kinkaku/Ginkaku, 4 Edo Kage DLC ??

  • Markell Davis

    Reviews don’t compare they only review what’s in THIS game so saying they should minus points for not updating would mean CoD would always have lower scores. You judge this game not the earlier ones.

    It’s kinda sad, I can not believe this game has been released.

    I still remember every day I opened saiyanisland to look for new info and a new scan.

    I still remember about we was so excited about new scan, give an opinion about the scan and we really excited to get this game.

    and now the game has been released, thanks saiyanisland. you made my year a wonderful one to find info about this game.

    Am i the only who feel this? :(

  • http://twitter.com/Keviouk KuroPansa

    In the “Dislike” part, you forgot to mention the lack of improvements for characters like Konan and Jugo, which is also a huge disappointment for the fans.

  • narutobleachop

    Me too!! I loved the last year and it’s weirdly sad the game is out now. But I know this fun will be back for STORM 4!!!! Saiyan Island I hope you can do it again!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000328444479 Jonathan Rivera Almodovar

    Nope :( sadly they not going to release it. In my opinion I think they going to be playable if they make generation 2 or something.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000328444479 Jonathan Rivera Almodovar

    I’m having a blast with it :)

  • Mangekyou

    So see you guys again when storm 4 is announced? :)

  • Storm3

    Hell yeah :D

    3 day left for australia but we will probly get it on thursday so on the 7 of march

  • Jojo

    no dont say COD because thats a different gaming genre. Most fighting games updates the characters even at least some of them. especially the deserving ones in this game like konan,jugo,tsunade,chouji(UJ) and more.

    who’s vote down and for what reason???

  • abdulhamian

    no this is apparently the last in the storm series, but far from the last naruto game

  • abdulhamian

    true

  • narutonatsu

    this reveiw has the same the positives and negatives i had, except never thought about the online … awesome review, it is the best anime game made so far it could be better but currently still the best, i give it a 9/10 just because im a huge fan 9.3/10 … wait even more lol …great game!

  • http://id.answers.yahoo.com/activity;_ylt=AmHLaCYiEH9jnelu9HydOwmgRAx.;_ylv=3?show=n63qwlSMaa&view=public Tamura

    where you at

  • Deva_Pain_Path

    Those that rage about seven swords men/4 kage/ginka & ginka… not really a big deal…all I care was the story mode looks worth buying/playing and changing the endings point was because the anime isn’t even as far as the game. Pretty much common sense, otherwise it will spoil it for those that never read the manga. People should be glad they improved story mode a lot…instead of just complaining about new characs every time. Be glad they put in the main fights of the whole war.

  • abdulhamian

    they are after about ten times i think thats what it was for storm 2. u would get banned i think for a while if you quit or disconnected more than 10 times. i know it happened to me once but it wasnt my fault my fuse had tripped at my house so i got disconnected froma match, thats how i knw.

  • abdulhamian

    ya!! i totally agree bro i dont know why ppl dont understand :(

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=676225630 Δημήτριος Γλύκας

    you who vote down …………..

  • Rekkonn

    When people hear about ring outs they all are thinking “F@#%! I hate this game! It’s a spammer’s dream!” But then you hear about it being on certain stages only. Plus, the truth is, on one stage, it is very hard to just ring out someone.

  • agazzi12345

    true that sucks

  • Madara

    I could hug u for your common sense (no homo)

  • Deva_Pain_Path

    Yeah I guess all they ever want is new characs and have the game unbalanced…but i’m buying the game in about 2hrs from now.

  • Deva_Pain_Path

    lolz

  • http://twitter.com/AZU_Ogbuehi AZURE SKY

    What a bias review…I
    I like STORM 3, but it has way more flaws than was listed. Cmon saiyanisland…lets be real here :(

  • kage mand

    PSN : TheDarkSenJutsu

  • agazzi12345

    europe

  • Jabari

    I think SI may be a little too biased with this one.

  • Rekkonn

    I do agree.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002955805409 Eduardo Aparecido de Lima

    Ultimate Jutsu also expect new, not even Storm 2, at least those who showed novelty, or exchange your outfits example Konan, Juugo, Konoha 11, Team Suna, Kages (Tusnade, Oonoki, Mei), Edo-Deidara… ;(

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dyllan-Battersby/100000717014304 Dyllan Battersby

    Ok you shood get on the 7 becos its caming out be for the release date

  • http://www.facebook.com/elias.johnson.501 Elias Johnson

    Thank you sayian island! It’s been real.

  • TryHardGamer

    I’m happy the game is out and all, but…no…clashes…

  • broni007

    Will they make Ultimate Ninja Impact 2 for PSP? I think it’ll be awesome if the game covers entire ninja war and ends at edo tensei release/further (no more 5 kage summit because we had it at impact 1). Hack n slash will be perfect for ninja war arc, and don’t forget to add MANY more characters like madara, kcm naruto,nagato. It’ll be EPIC!!!

  • graHamBone

    Another negative would be that they took out a combo for each character, used to be 4 now it’s only 3 :(

  • Rekkonn

    Here is a few of my ideas for Storm 4 (maybe for next Gen systems). It would take forever to fully explain each function.

    1.) 4-stage Instant Awakening for all characters (activated/deactivated by pressing the select button. Right analog stick is used to toggle between different stages)
    2.) 5 combos per character (Neutral, left, right, up, down)
    3.) Each stage 2 awakening has a new Ultimate Jutsu called a “Secret Ninja Art”
    4.) The same characters with different movesets share 1 slot excluding PTS
    5.) Most Instant Awakening character’s combos change (Like Sasuke’s combos utilizing more lightning based attacks and Susano’o)
    6.) Each stage of Awakening has different stat boosts (Team Ultimate Jutsu is only usable for non awakened players and stage 1 awakening)
    7.) Ninja tools are replaced by a jutsu switcher which you can customize (Ten Ten could summon a weapon so she can change her combos, Sasuke can have Fire Ball Jutsu, Chidori, Enton: Kagutsutchi, and “Raiton: Raika” as his 4 jutsus)
    8.) 2 Vs. 2 online battles and more!

  • graHamBone

    Dude really? This is a FIGHTING game. People don’t buy it for story mode they buy for VS mode. What keeps people playing over and over? CHARACTERS and COMBOS! Story mode is just a bonus.. -______-

  • Jabari

    I like your ideas even though they seem highly unlikely.

  • Rekkonn

    Well then, I better write a 10 page message of all the improvements they could make for a future Naruto game then and send it to them.

  • Jabari

    i would hope they would listen but….i dunno

  • Deva_Pain_Path

    Story mode is what unlock characters and gives you the feel of the game. Combos not necessarily, if you look at the anime/manga a lot of characters do not have any new moves. Except Naruto/Sasuke since they are the two main characters.

  • LastUzumaki

    Storm 4? xD This is the last naruto game for ps3 i guess .. but for Ps4 they will find infos too ^-^

  • http://www.facebook.com/georg.grossmaier Georg Grossmaier

    Why is there no Bijuu Mode in free battle? It’s playable in Story Mode!

  • dtrex

    I think there’s more dislikes like only 3 combos, characters moves are the same for most of them, sasuke’s eyes are wrong,no uchiha bros tag team with izanami and dragon sage even do story passes that part and more

  • http://www.facebook.com/georg.grossmaier Georg Grossmaier

    shortened combos?

  • http://www.facebook.com/georg.grossmaier Georg Grossmaier

  • http://twitter.com/TengenToppaa Lance D.U

    Lol Dat ‘review’ xD

  • PB360

    By far the best anime game released? That’s reaaally pushing it. Let me begin by saying it is a great game and there are exceptional things about it, but it is far from that title. For one the ring out feature doesn’t seem to come into play very often from what I’ve seen and when it does it seems like it will just be frustrating if anything so I wouldn’t count it as a plus. Second the game doesn’t really improve characters that were flawed in the last game like jugo, konan, jiraiya, orochimaru and even ignored a form for a character they could have easily had like kabutomaru. It also waste slot space with characters like Karin, Darui and Mifune and the random picks for the PTS characters, when it had room easily for more characters such as the edo 13 people are in a huff about. And while I don’t find it that important, even the idea to split up the costumes by region doesn’ make whole lot of sense. And in NA you get two costumes for characters no one really uses (Tsunade and Sakura). A better contender for the best anime game released would probably be raging blast 2 but thats just me. This game really deserve more of a 7 out of 10 then the 9.5 SI is giving it.

  • ej

    i hope the next game will be out for the PS VITA too :)

  • abdulhamian

    same lol i just have class then its straight to gamestop

  • http://www.facebook.com/matthewstephengreen Matt Green

    I’d say 8.5/10

  • Rayson

    Fail, last Storm game for Xbox ^_- it confirms that storm 4 is on PS4 i call it SONY EXCLUSIVE.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000875733425 Vertti Sinisalo

    Totally forgot about that compliment.

  • Jaye J

    One of the main reasons people say that is because it was the first in the series, but also there was no online so it’s understandable that they could go all out with the jutsu clashes and longer ultimates.
    All of there time was being throwed into the story mode as there weren’t any online capabilities, they could bring more into it.
    That’s why it seems better.

  • VzqcHD -45

    why you guys keep talking about storm 4, while some of you didnt play storm 3?
    and if storm 4 was realesed you will say storm 5 will……..

  • NARUT

    check my psn it is ayish111

  • umbium

    XDDDD Doritos, Doritos everywhere.

    Hey Saiyan Island, answer honestly… How much it took to sell yourselves?

  • Jaye J

    Well, it’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday hehe Time really does fly.
    We’ll all be back in anticipation for the next Storm (4).
    I would say this is a pretty good analysis, the good does outweigh the bad.
    SaiyanIsland, I love you guys (cartman voice).

  • http://www.facebook.com/Legendary.Reploid.Zero Randy Cuevas

    yea the only reason they have not announced it for next gen xbox is because they dont know what the next gen xbox is called as it has not been revealed yet

  • Jaye J

    Konan was what ticked me off.
    I Really like Konan, she’s probably my favorite female character in Naruto.
    When I seen she didn’t have a new ultimate I was very dissapointed, but I’m getting over it step by step lol

  • sam

    CC2 might just continue it for the hell of it.

  • Jabari

    :O

  • Bren

    Thanks for all the updates, I’ll be back when Generations 2 is announced lol.

  • Edo-Mū

    I’m in class right now, but as soon as that bell even makes a single sound, I’m going to teleport to GameStop with my Minato Kunai.

  • Christian

    Why is it so hard to ring out my opponent? And we thought this would be a problem..

    I haven’t finished the game yet but I’m really satisfied with the game. Best Storm gave I ever played.
    I played Storm 3 with my 42″ 3D TV (I bought the TV when I heard Storm 3 will be on 3D) and the story mode is just gorgeous. Not the best 3D graphics but I still love it. Though my eyes sore for playing 5 hours straight… @_@.

    The review is spot on. But I still want the UJ finisher. Makes me wanna end each battle with an Ultimate.

    Honestly once I learned that the previous kages were not playble, and some characters were cloned, my hype and excitement shattered. But after playing it. I can say the game is worth it. I love it and I’m going to play it for a very long time. :) )

  • Christian

    We need 5 bars of health if we are going to enjoy using all those awakenings..:))
    I like the idea.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Legendary.Reploid.Zero Randy Cuevas

    honestly this is far from the best anime game ever, if they want to make a naruto rpg they should make one instead of focusing on the story instead of the roster, this is a fighting game, a such the most important feature is the diversity among characters they say they’ll give us 80+ characters and there’s only 80 playable on the list cause 7 slots are support only and 1 slot is for premade groups, they took away some of the support only characters from generations what is the point of taking them out if your going to leave in other pts characters either take them all away or leave them all in,

    i dont know what the best anime game is in general but the best anime fighting game of all time is still and will always be DBZ budokai tenkaichi 3 with its massive roster that includes all characters no matter how important or unimportant and even characters that don’t exist

  • scabab

    And now we eagerly await Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 which could very well cover the end of the series.

  • pianoboy

    Sweet! Im trying to get some matches in

  • Tommy Faust

    Can someone explain what the secret factor thing is? Is that just the customer scene that plays in an ultimate jutsu?

  • GodlyPikachu

    Hey! I have a question!

    DLC is available right?

    That means they can give costumes to other characters like jugo and karin taka clothes..

    The naruto costume and other costumes take up an R1 slot right?

    Does that mean that they can add a new ultimate for that slot as DLC?
    Like the first slot with naruto (rasenshuriken and naruto red rasengan)

    Naruto goku has a diffrent rasengan..
    Does that mean on the R1 slot they can change movesets?

    IF THE R1 SLOT CAN HAVE A DIFFERENT ULTIMATE AND MOVESET..
    THEN DLC CHARACTERS CAN ALSO BE ADDED WITH DIFFERENT ULTIMATE AND MOVESET IN THE FUTURE..

    Is that possible???

  • ALMIGHTY Juicemon E. Genesis

    The secret factorhappens when you finish off your opponent with an ultimate jutsu. But simply landing an ultimate won’t trigger the secret factor. However, if the ultimate lands the finishing blow, then the secret factor will be triggered.

    In addition to this, an icon will appear beneath the combo-counter indicating the validity of an ultimate jutsu, secret factor finish.
    Hope this was helpful.

  • kisame007

    if this game had edo kages seven swordmen and ginkaku and kinkaku i would give 10 in 10 but we can’t get everything! STORY MODE IS EPIC!

  • manoahvdvelde

    I don’t think there will be a lot of exclusives besides Sony first party devs. And it will probably release on the old generation as well as the new, is my prediction.

  • manoahvdvelde

    It will probably release on the old generation as well as the new, is my prediction.

  • bar21995

    The edo kage will be playable ,but they didn’t put them in the game for one of these reasons:
    1-they will release them when it is released in japan because releasing it in Europe and us before them.
    2-they didn’t have any space in the disc to put them.
    3-or they simply need more money.

  • RedDragon10

    I’d give it an 8-8.5 max. Calling it the “greatest anime game” ever released is a complete joke.

  • Dante

    Characters who should be playable :
    - Edo Kages
    - Gin / Kin brothers
    - 6 swordsmen
    - Pakura
    - Gari
    - Sound 4
    - Anko
    - Shizune
    - Edo Sasori
    - Inoichi
    - Shikaku
    - Choza

    Characters who should be updated :
    - Kabutomaru sennin
    - Konan (new ultimate, new jutsu or awakening action)
    - Jugo (new outfit, new awakening)
    - Sai (awakening action with the two ink warriors)
    - Sakura (war: tied hair)
    - Tsunade
    Here are some good ideas for future DLCs, please read carefully… this time.

    the characters update plissss…

  • EighteenSky

    ‘Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is by far the best anime game to ever be released!’

    Yeah… no. It is pretty clear that you haven’t played many games based on anime. You’re not even saying ‘we think’, you’re stating. Numerous titles from this generation and past ones eclipse this game in quality. Not sure if this is just the view of a fangirl or SI collectively but you’re objectively wrong. I know I’m going to be down voted for this but it’s true.

  • http://www.facebook.com/TheIllusoryGentleman Jeremy Pelletier

    pretty sure the Swordsmen, Gold and Silver Brothers, and Edo Kage will be add on DLC since they have fully fleshed out movesets

  • timanel1

    lol are u kidding ? best anime game ever ?
    okay the story mode is “fresh” but the ending was stupid . the gameplay is equal to generations and have less movesets . new ougis where ? new characters ? 3 years to add 14 characters and keep the others the same ? instead of giving longer UJ they give us a screenshot to make it longer wich is worst than what it was before… please dont troll with us . the game is cool for story mode , but playing it vs mode is like playing generations.

  • byron123

    Yes because you make no sense. All this time you were watching to learn about this game and now that you actually have the chance to play it you feel depressed? Does this make any sense to you?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000083204208 Jon Jacob Black

    To say its the BEST ANIME GAME TO EVER BE RELEASED is definitely an overstatement
    I think that title can go to Jump Ultimate Stars. IMO

  • Lightbringer

    My other problem with the game is that they didn’t really update any of the older characters…..

    -I was hoping that kisame would get a better move-set and a fully-unsheathed samehada this time around

    -Konan would get the new ultimate with the billion explosive tags

    -Jugo would get a new costume/moveset and his full curse-mark form as awakening

    -Kabuto get the DSM awakening or at least a better jutsu and a speed boost, he has the worst jutsu in the entire game and is pretty slow

    -Edo Deidara get at least a new ultimate using his C0 suicide bomb tech

    -Have edo kakuzu and Sasori playable with at least a new ult

    -Onoki getting a new ult and jutsu using particle style with his awakening being first rock tech, and Mei getting a new ult/jutsu as well

    -and maybe an update with the 1st and 2nd hokage movesets

    I don’t think it would have been too difficult to make/add these changes to keep everyone happy…it just feels half-assed, especially since there are no edo swordsmen, gin/kinkaku, or edo kage either

  • kisame007

    your list got everything to make this game the best anime game ever!!

  • Cloud AC

    Go compare Orochimaru’s combos to UNSG for example. He’s one of the most outrageous of all. He looks unfinished. Such crappy work by CC2 this time.
    The only good thing about this game is the story mode and only if you forget about the crappy anti-climatic Hack’n Slash Boss Battles and the nonsense ending.

  • moongem

    Except for the extra hit feature, ring out system, instant awakenings and for some characters, awakening actions.. I don’t think those were in Generations, was it?

  • moongem

    Most anime games actually suck, save the ones based on the big four (DB, Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach) and NONE of them are half as cinematic as Storm is.
    No need to get butt-hurt, but that’s what happens with the worlds most popular manga.

    It is better then Pirate Warriors, but only by a smidge and that might change come PW2. Why? Trafalgar f’in Law.

    yeah that was awesome.. great 3 years of work.. adding instant awakenings and ring outs..what a coold thing..

  • EighteenSky

    Most anime games suck? I doubt you’d have even played a fraction of the many that are out there to judge. You listed 4 shonen manga/anime, hardly a diverse selection of anime games available. And a game doesn’t need to be cinematic for it to be good.

  • Darkichi

    Whata fack i dont think they will make a 4 WHADAA FACK will the story be about naruto as hokage and you may play as his Son that Hinata gave birth too him and his son teacher/sensei will be konohamaru! xDD (maan that dose not sound kinda bad xD)

    If there is it would most likely be after the manga is totally finished and the canon ending is known. I heard somewhere this is the last Storm game but that doesn’t mean another fighting game for the PS3 or PS4 won’t show up and pick up from there. Or it could turn out like the DBZ series of fighting games and pop up with ‘what if’ story lines it all depends on how the company wants to take it.

    Finally someone to think like me, Sound 4 playable, I really want them in this game because they were absent in Generatios. Edo kages are 80% probable that are going to be DLC, the fans are very angry and they are going to fix their mistake. You need to send this idea to Bandai please, I´m really support you.

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    seriously you guys give storm 3 WAY too much credit. the games okay, it’s really a 6.7. for starters the frame rate was terrible. the major thing is that 90% of the characters from storm 2 and generations were basically copied and pasted into the game and remained unchanged! and another thing is that characters such as naruto, sasuke, (who get power-ups every game) madara and the jinchuriki new to the game are over-powered and can easily spam people. the game is decent but not THAT good.

  • moongem

    I played the Eyesheild game. Kekkaishi. LOL Ultimate Tenkaichi. The Gin Tama game. I used to import them all the time until I realized how lackluster they were. Have you ever played any of those? Save Ultimate Tenkaichi. Countless others. Normally they try to do something new and unique and it’s either hit or miss… usually miss.

  • robertbode

    a 9.7 is a extremely biased opinion. I would give this more like a 7 because so far the story mode is just like storm 2 with the exception of a few tweaks and the lack of character development in the game-play is noticeable.

  • Baryll

    THANK YOU.
    9.7? What?
    People need to stop that horrible excuse of “it’s good for an anime game”.
    Hell, it should be BETTER if it’s an anime game, these games make TONS of money.
    This is the same game if you take out the extremely small details that SHOULD have been in Generations.
    I was lucky enough to buy a used copy, and got bored of it within a few hours.
    The story was WAY to much just watching cutscenes, and way to little playing.
    Hack N’ Slash was repetitive, and short.
    Boss Battles are dumbed down, minus Madara and Tobi, which were VERY off the actual Story.
    And if CC2 is reading this, which I HIGHLY doubt they are, because they must be feasting away on peoples money. IF YOU CANNOT MAKE AN ACCURATE STORY THAT WILL FULFILL SOME POTENTIAL, DO NOT BOTHER, AND PUT THAT EFFORT INTO THE MAIN PART OF THE GAME, BATTLING.
    If they put time into this, we could have had a fresh game. And I’m not even complaining about the horrible character roster that SCREAMS quantity >>>> quality.
    This game WAS and IS half-assed.
    And if you think differently and are here to reply to me about how I am “ungrateful”? Tell that to the loads of money I’ve spent on this series.
    It felt horrible to see my enthusiasm and hype die down INSTANTLY within a week of release. I didn’t expect a ton of stuff, but I didn’t expect the same thing, retouched.

  • Baryll

    That ending though….ugh.

    I cannot stress how much more I would have preferred either the game ending where Madara gets cut or even when Tobi’s mask breaks.
    Hell, if it was up to me and what I think we deserve it should have gone up to Sasuke’s exact words: “What are Shinobi?”
    And what on EARTH was the point of adding in Young Kakashi/Obito if their story was nowhere to be found?

  • slimee

  • http://www.facebook.com/chris.winkowski Chris Winkowski

    whoa now saying its the best anime fighting in history thats a huge over statment lol, but it is great tho i have a lot of minor problems with it, such as badily synched voice overs, a lot of boring cut scenes from far off angles where the characters don’t move they just stand there and talk, life bars in boss battles take tons of damage with just a few hits which makes most of the boss battles really fast and easy,not having cinematic scenes in every boss battle,and of course the way the story was screwed by leaving and changing some things in the events of the story, and there we have it all my complements, most of these things aren’t big issues, but i can’t help but feel that they bother me, sorry if this offends anyone all these oppions are just me, im not saying that the game isn’t great in any way shape or form because i love the game but these are just things that if were gotten rid of and fixed would make the game much more enjoyable for me thats all, oh and of course more war characters would make it better to and infinite awakenings and new move sets lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/chris.winkowski Chris Winkowski

    7.5 at best

  • http://twitter.com/Staticdash22 D’shawn

    Whoa, slow down saiyanisland. A 9.7 is an extremely biased opinion and this review is leaking all kinds of fanboyism. Let’s step back and actually analyze the game. How does it stack up against it’s predecessor, which was Generations?

    1. The story mode was a mess at times. Don’t get me started on the ending, it’s was a total mess.

    2. The game suffers from major framerate issues. At times it is very game breaking

    3. The audio to the game is a problem. Badly synched voice overs especially in the english voices.

    4. There were toms of pointless cutscenes, too much watching and not enough playing at times

    5. (Cont from #2) Major framerate dips during the cutscenes such as the Nine Tails boss battle

    6. Instant awakening is overpowered

    7. Not enough new characters. Too many narutos, too many sasukes, and too many pointless characters. Why is Hidan in this game? What is young kakashi & obito in this game if the story has nothing to do with them in the game. Why is kimimaro in the game if he gets no battle?

    8. Life bars continue to be a problem. Hits cause tons of damage and games end withing 45 seconds lol. There really needs to be 3 health bars.

    9. Support drive vs Normal Jutsu. Why would my jutsu be irrelevant against a support drive if they are running at me, being exposed to a freaking chidori? Logically this makes no snese in a fighting game that support drives negate a freaking rasengan or chidori. They are exposed, but meh.

    * This game is a 7.5 at best.
    7.5/10 for me.

  • izanamiuchiha

    i think we are not going to get jugo curse mode. 2 killer bee bijuu mode vsion 2 konan’s ulyimate jitsu normal tobi. why sasuke in curse mode has a weird chidori that is not in the anime and sucks

  • izanamiuchiha

    why orochimaru and suigetsu dont have the awakening they should suigetsu should have the big water monter that fought the eight tails and survive the bijuubomb orochimaru should have the big snake with sevem tails

  • Christian

    Hi! I’m playing the PS3 version. At the main menu, you can press a button to go to options. There is a 3D option there along with language, violence and sounds. You can also change the depth of 3D.

    When I first played storm 3 after installing it, the game asked me if I’m going to enable the 3D option. Ever since then I haven’t turned it off.

  • disqus_TT2gtVnvVy

    A bit disappointed in UNS 3. I was really hoping they would put the free roam back from the first one. They put a half ass effort in with the “free roam side scrolling” bs they gave us. Also was hoping for sum new combos and jutsu animations. The graphics are lovely as in generations but i was really hoping the actual gameplay was gonna step up. Another thing instead of having two itachis or two kakashis the jutsu and tha ultimate jutsus should just be interchangable. And players should have at least two jutsu instead of only one and one ultimate. The new instant awakening is pretty cool i have to say. All in all i was more disappointed cuz i knew what tha positives were gonna b. I was hoping to be surprised. I give it a 7/10 for the makers half assin n not trying to revamp at least sum characters combo attacks and ultimate jutsu. If and when theres a 4th installment i hope they think of these things…..

  • Jabari

    You do realize this game isn’t free right?

  • Bren

    9.7 is not a good score for this game. We were already disappointed that they didn’t have enough new characters and took away a combo from everyone, so we told ourselves “at least story mode will be epic!”. If only that were true. In all honesty, the boss battles in storm 2 were better and more dynamic than storm 3. They were too lazy to make a Danzo boss battle or a Nagato/Itachi boss battle. The show does a better job with fights than this game does, which is a shame. The story mode is too long and pointless because we already know what happens. We don’t need to see every static conversation. This game is a bloated mess. 6.5/10.

  • Shogunreaper

    Hack and slash was unimpressive and often had terrible framerate issues

    I have never been more upset with an ending of a game in a LONG LONG LONG time.. this is a damn shame how they ended it, don’t get me wrong the Madara Kage fight was fun but hard as hell… but naruto’s battle made me want to just stop playing

  • Tama

    … n00b?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004830121343 Alexander Romero

    Lets’s see . . . . .
    Pros: Cons:
    1) Awesome story mode. 1) Lack of important characters like 7 SM, Kin/Gin, Certain Edo Akatsuki,
    2) Great new characters. and 4 Edo Kage playable.
    3) Boss Battles are very intense. 2) Boss Battles became too hard to beat on Legend and sometimes also
    4) New Ultimate Decision leads the game in different directions. on Hero.
    3) PTS characters playable and waste of slots like 2 killer bees.

    In summary, I will give this game a 9.3 out of 10. What really made the HUGE drop were Cons 1 and 2. What saved tha gem were Pros 1, 2, and 4. If you don’t believe me then let me show what Madara Uchiha can really do.

  • http://www.facebook.com/liam.simpson.547 Liam Simpson

    The only thing about this game that really disappoints me is the fact that most of the characters in this game has absolutley boring and disatisfying combos!! For example they could have done SOOO much more with the hokage’s combos; 1st hokage combos should have included many more trees erupting from the ground to really give an impact. Another is Tsunade… she has freaking monster strength… so why is it that when she hits people it sounds like it had the same umph as Ino hitting someone??? Don’t get me wrong i love the new character’s combos but most o fthe characters from storm 2 have pretty average combos and cc2 were just being lazy about desinging them

    The only way this game is a 9.7 is if its the first Naruto storm series game you’ve played..

    Why not make a DLC where naruto has to fight menma and destory tobi’s moon eye plan or somthing like that or he gets a mysterious letter and goes to a weird unknown place and it sucks naruto into the other world of naruto and encounters evil menma fights him as a boss battle then later fight tobi as the final boss batter then menma teams up with naruto.

    look they did it because they can’t stop the game in the middle of the war
    if that was happend the game will get a 6.7 but i think it’s a 8.9

  • narutouzomaki

    haha but tell me what for anime game do you like better then storm 3 ? the dbz games aren’t so much fun as naruto storm series

    They have to make a storm 4 otherwise they wasted there time making three shoulda waited longer unless the upcoming dlc fix the game also Naruto ends this year so they.better be in development

    There are plenty. The Tales series are some of my favorite types of games, Jump superstars and jump ultrastars are my two favorite ds games; i disagree with what you said about dbz games not being as fun as naruto for budokai 3, tenkaichi 2, and tenkaichi 3 are some of my favorite fighting games ever, Astro boy omega factor was probably my favorite anime gba game ever, capcom vs tatsunoko was a great fighter as well, digimon adventure 3 was an awesome rpg. I loved dark tournament, although some peope hated it, and finally jojos’ bizarre adventure. Those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

    THANK YOU! At least not everybody is on the “CC2 did their best and we need to appreciate all the improvements made” train. Despite all the slight game-play tweaks, this game still has so much room for improvement.

    Yep, Raging Blast 2 lacks story mode in the classic format, but it totally has everything you love about the anime. My fav. anime game.
