Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 (PlayStation 2)

 

The quality of the Naruto games that Namco Bandai has been cranking out over the past few years hasn't come close to matching the quantity, though last year's Naruto: Ultimate Ninja was the rare exception. The core one-on-one ninja-fighting action...

Though he has yet to achieve the cultural ubiquity or pervasive merchandising of Goku and friends, there's definitely a strong correlation between Shonen Jump's Naruto and the Dragon Ball Z series. Both are solid middle-school power fantasies with a...

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 is unquestionably the best in the series, and yes, that's a good thing.

CyberConnect2 clearly knows what they're doing. They built a fighting game that, while by no means a contender to the Street Fighters or Soulcaliburs, is still a decent distraction, and now they've started the process of building up more of a game...

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

It must be hard to create a standout fighting game. With big-hitters such as Soul Calibur, Tekken, Virtua Fighter, Street Fighter and Dead or Alive so completely dominating the field, you'd wonder where else developers can take the genre, and what...

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 Review

 

A solid beat 'em up that builds on last year's hit game with lots of extras.

Ultimate Ninja 2 is more of the same but with a fresh coat of paint. In my opinion it's got enough meat on its bones to recommend to fans of the original and beat 'em up fans in general. But while the action is pretty easy to get into, the game's...

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 is a frustratingly enjoyable game. Many times did I pull on my hair because the game's mission restrictions make it tough to defeat the computer, but my repeated losses only fueled my desire to win, win, win. And win I did by...

A full cast of characters from the anime ; Easy-to-learn fighting system ; Varied fighting environments

Mission restrictions are tough ; Frequent load times

Mission restrictions aside, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2’s storyline follows the anime perfectly. Sequential battles unfold like the anime and let players fight with different key characters during their big scenes. In this mode, players can’t choose their...

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2

 

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 is a multiplayer title. It isn't a complex fighter, but it's made up for with style. The real story here is the awesome cut scenes used for special attacks. They don't have much for the player to interact with, but they add a...

Amazing cutscenes ; Good Multiplayer ; Large amount of unlockables

Unecessary difficulty ; Controls that are needlessly frustrating ; and once learned lack real depth ; Shallow single player game required to get through in order to unlock the worthwhile multiplayer

A poor follow up, in a series of poor follow ups. The initial installments of the Naruto games delivered comic book/ anime action with a decent spin on traditional fighting games. The various follow ups have been disappointing and this is no exception.

Naruto Ultimate Ninja 2

 

The Naruto franchise has become the next Dragon Ball Z in Japan. Just look at how many games have been released since Masashi Kishimoto's series was first published. To say that number is staggering would be a gross understatement and quite honestly I...

Naruto Ultimate Ninja 2 is a solid representation of Kishimoto's popular series. The graphics fully embody the anime, the audio is authentic (though annoying at times), and the gameplay is frenetic yet simplistic. This is a fast-paced fighting game...

Flipping out and taking names.

Accessible combo scheme; RPG elements and challenges; Smooth graphics; Kid friendly

Shallow differences between fighters; Short campaign; Selective target audience

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2

 

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 2 is the latest in a series of Naruto-based games. Unlike the last Naruto game we reviewed, this one goes back to the 2D fighting genre. Utilizing characters from the Naruto universe, the anime's story (it's around the same spot...

Decent as far as fighting games go, but one of the better Naruto-based titles. Certainly better than the last outing. Fans of Naruto will want to pick this up; non-fans—probably not.
