Naruto game Review

Once, a nine-tailed demon fox attacked Konoha, the Hidden Village of the Leaf. Many brave ninjas lost their lives defending their home. Finally, the demon was sealed by the Fourth Hokage into the body of a human boy. Several years later, that boy, Naruto Uzumaki, struggles to gain the acceptance and acknowledgement of the villagers, many of whom still hate him because of the demon inside him. So, Naruto strives to become the Hokage, the strongest ninja in the village, so that the villagers will acknowledge him. Along the way, he gains many new friends, and faces many life-threatening situations.

Story & Playability

Great Ninja's aren't born , They're Made!
The Ultimate Ninja fighter returns!
Of course im speaking of the New Released Game of...

Shonen Jump's Naruto Ultimate Ninja 2!

.All new features like Over 30 playable Characters
.16 Unqiue stages
.Intense chakra-powered secret techniques!
."Spectacular" battles, mini games and tons of unlockable content!
.All-new character customization and story mode
.New run around RP

That and much much more!


The Story is continued along with Jiraiya and Naruto Training in like the real anime series.
To Train for the Chunin Exams.(That is all i would say it basicaly shows what happens in the anime series.)

What would you expect from a seque of a Naruto game? Not much right? Well in this review i will express my opinions and point out its downfalls and upgrades! Join me and Naruto in the quest to find out if this game is worth the $40.00 or just worth for the bargain bin!

Graphics

The character design nevers really blows me away but just the style is very unique
It still continues with that Manga-Art syle to keep your eyes on the characters movements and etc.
The back ground art is very how you say , not orginal.
Most of it Maybe even all of it is the same stages from the first Naruto Ultimate Road game.
So thats minus some points. Each Character has very nice shades of colour but its very dull like.
Like i said it IS Manga Art style but in the character selection the characters take on thier anime form clean and bright , which i dont get because they are joining to switch over to thier New manga art style. For using your chakra in your special techniques is very cool! in my opinion
I love sasukes attack because it just flows all this colours burst out and i think thats what makes the game worth while.
In the RP mode the landscape is VERY bright and you may have to tone your screen done.And forget about playing it if you have a glem of sun on it , its very difficult to see.But in some places
it tends to get very dark and there for you can see again , but the lighting is very confusing.
the art is nice again but some of the things are misplaced and it irratated to get around and sometimes a tree is in the way and some character is stayed behind it and you complateted missed the next scene. But all in all the style does match the genre of the game.

Sound

Now for the sound test.
All i can say is thank god there are music settings!
Thats how bad it is! The music can get VERY annoying. So be warned , but in battle you would want the music up to get into the mood , which i can understand , i need the music up to get into the mode of beating my opponent! in the mini-games it is very very annoying they play the same beat over and over and i just turn on my ipod by then i rather listen to clay aiken then listen to that junk.

For the Voice acting its VERY in sync which i give two thumbs up to. Each character really plays thier role into making the game as realitic as they can. Maybe except one character...
Kabato , im sorry but the guy is not trying or he just doesnt want to do the voice over his voice is VERY dull and all he does is talk he shows no emotion , even Gaara shows more emotion than him!

For the Opening movie its very nice but you dont really play attentions to the music much , your just like "uh huh yea okay i wanna play already! >3<"
That how Non-attention grabbing it is. The music is a BIG let done

Fun

Everything to me is that they tried to make it better than the original by putting more wanted characters in the game like Temari and Ino.Which i really adore ,but some characters chakra attacks use thier support characters which is like wtf? why do i need to waste chakra to just get my partner to hurt my opponent which is another down fall so they didnt even try to be original
with thier moves ,which you see in the anime they pull off all thier own unique styles and skills.

The humor is more than expected ,its typical naruto humor which i dont laugh , only in some events which its so wierd , it goes to stupid then to funny.

it can be enjoyable for people because the ninja items are just too funny ( thats wierd im laughing @ what the items do) Anyway they have a item called paper bomb and bomb kunai which blows your opponent away which you have to make an onomateopia for which is funny.

The presentation is nice the RP is a nice touch so my final rating is that this game isnt for the bargin bin its okay but you'll get pretty bored which it the characters are tough to beat even on easy mode(i learned that the hard way) If you want to buy this $40.00 game go ahead! More power to you but i think i should leave this game to the Naruto fans who do get its humor and likes it sumwhat bad voice acting on one charatcer that doesnt feel like doing that voice over.
Well im still trying to beat it haha
