Most games based on a licensed property are terrible.
It's a sad truth of the gaming world, and many players have accepted this as a foregone conclusion. Licensed games are bad until proven good. Merely tolerable licensed games are the exception rather than the rule, and truly good ones are a rare find.
That in mind, this particular licensed game, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, is actually pretty great. -Josh Tolentino
