When Naruto first started appearing on these shores it seemed like a good alternative to the dreary Dragon Ball Z. Ninjas who had cool ninja powers, kids possessed by nine-tailed foxes that could turn into girls was a bit more palatable than the sci-fi 'your power level is huge!' silliness of the Z. Then the games started. The beat-'em-ups may have been simple but they were good. Unfortunately, they were soon translated into English, losing all their charm and Naruto turned into nothing more than a Saturday morning cartoon. Then the games got worse and here we are with what has to be the worst of them all.
