From the review: "If there's something that is a constant in the world of video games, it's the fear that a franchise has over-saturated the market and has run its course, and gamers can only hope that a developer and publisher have the wherewithal to know when to cut and run. Unfortunately for Namco Bandai and the Naruto franchise it looks like they've hit that point. With the latest game, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations gamers will find that the franchise might finally be tapped for ideas. Favoring an experience that strictly focuses on storyline and combat, developer CyberConnect2 has tweaked the gameplay to favor faster fighting action in both online and offline battles. However, this focus has unfortunately resulted in one of the most bland games in the franchise, offering little outside of a decent combat system."
