It's really difficult to recommend Naruto: Ninja Destiny to even the most hardcore of Naruto fans. It's a limited, shallow button masher that succeeds only as a cash-in to sell to the Naruto fans that'll buy anything with the license slapped on it. This game doesn't just fall victim to the "anime game curse", it practically defines it. Takara Tomy does deserve credit for addressing some of the most glaring flaws that the Japanese version had. However, in spite of all the things they fixed, they couldn't fix the game's biggest flaw: it's simply not fun.
