"Fans of uber-popular anime series Naruto Shippuden have been crying out for a definitive video game able to do the franchise justice for years.
Two games released earlier this console generation – Rise of a Ninja and The Broken Bond – were competent action-adventure RPGs with plenty of charm, but the one-on-one fighting sections took a back seat to laborious fetch quests and on-foot racing trials.
Understandably, followers of the ramen-lovin’ blonde ninja and his universe have been more receptive to the fighting-based Ultimate Ninja Storm series.
For the series’ third installment, Namco Bandai Games and Fukuoka-based developer CyberConnect2 have pulled out all the stops, creating the most expansive and cinematic Naruto gaming experience thus far, sure to satiate devotees and impress newcomers." 8/10
