Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations | Good Game SP Review

GGSP writes: There’s a lot Generations gets right. It looks brilliant and it’s one of the easiest fighters to pick up and play. Naruto fans looking to live out their ninja fantasies won’t be disappointed... unless they already own Ultimate Ninja 2. It just doesn’t add enough to justify another purchase for anyone but the most rabid fans of the last game.

Good read. I wish the game stood out a little more from the first one.


Creating the Perfect Naruto Fighting Game

By owner/editor-in-chief Furious Francis

I am a huge Naruto fan. I’ve been watching the show since 2007 and love every bit of it. Unfortunately the Naruto video games do not touch the level of quality the anime displays. Sure, if you’re a Naruto fan, playing Ultimate Ninja 2 is going to be fun, but the games lack the depth and strategy other fighting games have. Even a party game like Smash Bros has more skill involved with the battle system than most Naruto games. The Clash of Ninja Revolution games do a decent job of building a Tekken or Street Fighter type of game but ultimately fall short because of balancing, shallow depth, and button mashing tendencies. In this article, were going to discuss my vision for a perfect Naruto game. This Perfect Naruto game will not only be accurate to the anime, but will also have deep fighting game mechanics that actually takes skill to master.

Game Guys review - Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations

It seems like six months can't go past without another video game based upon the popular 'Naruto' anime being either announced or released. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, the third in Namco Bandai's Ninja Storm series, came out earlier this year. The title takes some of the better elements of the first two games and adds some original content of its own to provide an above-average anime-inspired video game fighting action experience.

I didn't like this one, I thought there new mechanics screwed with each other.

Sub bar/Chakra cancel

Sharingan_no_Kakashi4336d ago

Yea they did. The point of a substitution bar was to promote the use of melee attacks by limiting how often a person can substitute them. But the cancel dash completely kills it because the second you use a substitution you'll be met with the cancel dash. Cancel dashing forces a person to use up all their subs so it's not really wise to use them at all.

omarzy4336d ago

chakra cancel/sub bar were genius. Always kept you at full attention during an exchange. All about the timing and how you use your limited sub bars. charkra cancel can be beaten with another chakra cancel, a grab after sub jutsu, or chakra dash backwards and work out a plan, or just sideways and flip around the player.

Wow 3 disagrees, really? Generations was the definitive version of Ninja Storm if you were playing multiplayer with friends. 2 did have a vastly superior story mode, but Generations was fantastic as well.

I'm just happy it sold that many units, so we can continue to look forward to more Ninja Storm games. NSUNS:3 looks like it's going to beat them all though, just by that one freaking trailer.

Sold my copy this afternoon..
Some problems of ninja storm fixed but this one introduced others .. and it felt incomplete and inférior in term of content.They better do a better job for Storm 3 or they'll not have my money ..

I`m still waiting for the price to drop down further before I get it.

Though I wish I had it now!!
