Ninja-Running Through History
HIGH Almost all of Naruto history gathered into a single package.
LOW Naruto history is really the only reason to play it at this point.
WTF Knowing that Naruto’s story mode is still among the best in fighting games.
HIGH An absolutely gorgeous replication of a deep anime universe.
LOW Online matchmaking turned my Elite controller into a pricey shotput.
WTF I'm a kickass ninja saving the world. Why am I fetching cats?
HIGH It's only six hours long, so my suffering was short-lived.
LOW So many options… how about the fact that I spent a huge chunk of that six hours doing nothing but watching a cruddy subpar anime masquerading as a video game?
WTF A character possesses a sword so large that it can stab through one side of a planet and out the other with length to spare.
HIGH The opening video is gorgeous.
LOW Combat is simpler and more boring than it first appears.
WTF Yay! New chapter! Wait…I have to go back and do extra quests just to unlock the next part of the story?
