5.0 out of 5 stars Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, 17 Oct 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 (PS3) (Video Game)
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 is the sequel of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 1 exclusively for the PS3. The first game was amazing but it lacked online play and had only a rooster of 25 characters. This game however changed that, online was added and the character rooster is almost doubled. The story mode is based on the big hit manga and anime series it takes place from manga volume 28-48 and from Naruto Shippuden episode 1 to about 170. The story in the game is a basic outline of the manga and anime. I found the story more entertaining in the new game than in the first, as I enjoyed the Shippuden story more than the first one. The story will take you about 15-20 hours to complete, but it does not end where with many other missons you can do afterwards. You also need to unlock 3 more characters after the game by earning lots of points.

The combat hasn't changed all that much from the first they have put in a few more combat moves what you can do with your team supporters. The combat is simple and easy to pick up however there are not many combos in the game compared to a game such as Street Fighter where that game uses a lot of combos. This has its ups aswell as it means the new comers to a fighting game can play this well. Also there is the substation jutsu move which is like a dodge but better you have to be skilled and time it well to use this, as you have to press the LT/L2 or RT/R2 buttons intime with the attack to dodge it and end up behind your opponent to attack. This makes the game much more fun and fast paced and takes skill to do it.

The online in this game has two options Player Match or Rank Match. Player Match is just for fun where you can battle your friends or someone random and there is no points or ranks awarded at the end. With Ranked Match you only can play with a random person and you can choose who are you can create your own session you can also do this with player match, but Rank Match you get points and the more points you have the higher your ranking in the leaderboard, also you are given a title as you get more points e.g. Genin.

This game is worth a buy even if you are not a naruto fan, this is fun to play by yourself or with friends. It will keep you occupied for at least 30 hours or even more and is worth the 40. It would make a brillant christmas present, and it plays just aswell on the Xbox 360 than it does on the PS3. This in my books is the game of the year.
