Canadian Online Gamers: "Though it has its moments, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 misses the mark. Although the campaign mode is fun at times, its lackluster cutscenes and slow exploration leave much to be desired. The flashy combat looks great, and much of the game contains goodies that fans of the series will really enjoy. The lack of innovation is disappointing to me this time around, and I felt as though the game had a lot of potential, but instead it was filled with missed opportunities. The most hardcore fans may be able to sit through the story. This is an installment for the fans that love everything Naruto – others will have a hard time sticking this one out. For the average gamer, not enough is offered in a manner that would keep their interest."
