* Excellent animation and management of cameras
* Great use of Cel shading
* Very spectacular
* Simple, but not lacking in depth and tactical
* The representation of the Hidden Leaf Village is great
* Provide English and Japanese dubbing from the beginning


* Lack of online multiplayer
* Missing some mini games
* The story has been somewhat inconsistent
* Some characters that do not appear.

I think this game is great, might buy although I didnt watch the whole anime.

Im not into cartoons but this game did kind of look fun but no online? It seems silly for it not to have an online mode IMO


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.

Outlawzz1021d 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

lucian2291021d ago

except naruto games are barely actual deep fighting games

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

Outlawzz1021d 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
