Naruto: Ninja Council 3 is a shallow fighting game with a lame single-player mode but an awesome multiplayer mode.

The Council Could Use Some Consoling

The game really holds no value for anybody outside of a Naruto fan, and even then, this game is simply not worth the money and frustration required for it. The game could’ve been decent if it had some kind of story included in some way, but that simply...

Some video games based on existing franchises try to win new fans to the source material. Others feel like they were created solely for pre-existing fans. Naruto Ninja Council 3 for the Nintendo DS falls into the latter category and offers little to...

All in all, Naruto Ninja Council 3 isn’t much to speak of. Fans of the source material might get a kick out of it, but most general gamers would probably be best advised to go ahead and skip it.

Naruto: Ninja Council 3 is the latest in the handheld incarnations of the plucky-anime-ninja license from D3. The first installment on the DS doesn't upgrade much from the GBA iterations: the side-scrolling action-adventure is intact. The additional...

Controls are simplified ; Wide array of characters ; Custom specials allow for infite play combinations

Same horrid collision detection ; Nonexistent story ; Filler Levels

Where before there was too little, here there is not enough worth getting involved with. The home console installments are usually worth your time, but D3 has yet to make a handheld Naruto worth it.

Naruto: Ninja Council 3 Nintendo DS Review

 

As an example, one of the early levels is in a lava-filled cave where the objective is to kill 20 bats in 300 seconds. This sounds simple, but the bats are all hanging on the ceiling, can only be attacked when they are swooping at you, and only swoop...

Huge cast of characters from a show that many adore; Cool Jutsu attacks

Pretty much everything else is either bland or frustrating

Licensed games are historically weak compared to their original brethren, often little more than cash-ins marketed towards fans of a given series. Anime licenses have been among the worst offenders and despite a recent trend toward improvement (see the...

The spiky-haired martial artist in orange (no, not Goku) comes to the DS. Do you want to sit through this council meeting?

Nice sprite artwork and animation; lots of unlockable characters; selectable special moves; decent multiplayer modes

Consists entirely of mostly dull mini-missions; you'll plow through the missions in a couple hours; the characters all play roughly the same

May 29, 2007 - Alright, I will begin this review with a disclaimer: If you don't know anything about Naruto, you will be absolutely clueless about what is going on in this game. And you'll probably hate it. I feel like that should be made clear up...

Gamers may play alone through 40 different missions in Naruto: Ninja Council 3 or challenge friends to four-person multiplayer action through a wireless connection. Based on the series Shonen Jump Naruto, Ninja Council 3 requires players use the stylus an

A fun game with bad special effects

 

The bottom line is I had a lot of fun playing the game. You can switch jutsu beetween characters so you can make them invinceble. I love the game, but some people say it stinks. I guess you could say it's good or bad depending on your personality. I...

I like the facy that it is one of the only Naruto games that is not rated T, and its really fun

I dont like the bad effects and that it's missons are kinda pointless
