From the review:
"The gameplay in Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 is unlike almost any other fighting game of this current generation. Not only is the fighting performed in a full 3D plane (not simply sidestepping but full on running in 360 degrees) but the bulk of the Story Mode gameplay actually takes place in free-roam around Hidden Leaf Village and the surrounding areas. Unlike the cumbersome ‘Campaign’ mode of Tekken 6, the Story Mode in Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 never feels simply tacked on, and is actually the game’s greatest asset. Although this is a ‘fighting game’, in reality it is more like an adventure game interspersed with 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 combat."
