On the one hand it’s a fighting videogame, while on the other it’s an RPG nestled cosily inside an anime story. Long time fans of the cartoon series will be familiar with the tale of young ninja-in-training Naruto and Team 7, and if you’re not then at first this game’s Story Mode will leave you completely confused. Much like watching Urotsukidoji: Legend Of The Overfiend. But just like with Urotsukidoji, Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 is compelling enough to see through to the bitter end."
