Putting that personal bias aside, playing this game was rather interesting, as the gameplay was surprisingly solid, though that was about it. The overall package leaves a little to be desired; Path of the Ninja 2 is a quick play with issues that could use addressing.
In Naruto: Path of the Ninja 2, the player takes the role of Naruto and his ninja companions as they attempt to save the world. In order to do so, they must retrieve five hidden mirrors and reseal an ancient evil that has been loosed upon the world. During this process, Naruto meets up with dozens of other ninja who join him on his adventure. Overall, the story is really cliché and largely unimportant, as it never really develops beyond standard "save the world" fare."
