IGN's Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Hands-on

IGN writes:

"...it's the story mode mission structure CyberConnect2 has put in place that really has us intrigued by Ninja Storm. You see, the game features a large open world – dubbed the Hidden Village – which acts as a central hub between battles. Here, you can chat to townsfolk to unlock new objectives or simply explore in a bid to collect handy items for use in battle or bump up your abilities. What's particularly striking though is the amount of effort CyberConnect2 has put into this side of the game, with it practically being a platformer in its own right."

I hope that the voice syncing is a hell of a lot better than Burst Limits. Seeing as sometimes I feel the urge to not play Burst Limits because of the sole fact that the syncing is off. It's like an old Godzilla movie.

Look like the Va is synch to the Japanese VA which its a plus for me I don't get so used to hear the US voices acting.


No One Makes Anime Games Quite As Well As CyberConnect2

There's nothing quite like flying in DBZ: Kakarot or Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm's battles.

That's also the problem. They are decent but never truly ambitious in challenging the powerhouses of any genre whether RPG or fighting.

Outlawzz887d ago

Completely agree. Their games never quite reach that high point. They have potential but it's like they hold themselves back.

They do seem to have taken a safe route with the new Demon Slayer game though, which has no demons to slay (???) and is very similar to Ninja Storm.

I mean, ArcSys makes better anime games in Guilty Gear and FighterZ, so this argument fell on its face quick.

Those are both fighting games based off of an anime. Naruto storm, my hero one justice, that shitty one punch man game, etc are the games the writer is talking about Im sure

lucian229887d ago

except naruto games are barely actual deep fighting games

BrainSyphoned887d ago

Or 20 second fights fall on their face when portraying multi season anime.

Outlawzz887d ago

I like the games they work on and how they recreate the feel of the anime. They are masters of that imo but the gameplay is usually basic and doesn't ever try anything new. It's mostly the same over and over.

So that basically only ever makes it a good game with lots of potential to be a great game.

CC2 has a lot of potential. Theyre amazing when it comes to spectacle. Naruto storm looked great and asuras was amazing cinematic wise, but theyre gameplay needs so much improvement. Its so damn basic. Its like they hold themselves back. I remember the reveal trailer for asuras wrath having body slams, and suplexes, dragging enemies across the ground etc. And for some weird reason all of that was removed for gameplay that was hardly anything more than mashing the circle button.

And its even more frustrating cuz theyve done how many storm games now. Youd think they wouldve managed ti improve but tis like theyre not even trying. Idk man. I just feel like a dev like them shouldve been way bigger by now
