Each story is short, but the playable fights combined with the motion comic style cute scenes help to make the experience feel like reading the manga.
The graphics are not the most realistic, but with an anime-based video game, the animated look helps preserve the feeling similar to the source material.
The controls are something that is much like every other fighting game, most of the actions are done with two buttons, but a combination of three buttons (power-up, strike and dodge).
Each battle in the story mode gets more and more difficult, but with unlimited retries players can adjust their fighting style to progress.
To keep things interesting, characters evolve as they progress through the game as well, new moves are obtained and power-ups as well.
For fans of the anime, the stories for each playable character may be familiar, but the cut scenes and ending story may contain some never before seen story, which makes going through all story mode character exciting.
The game has more than 70 characters, but not all of them are available in story mode. The main characters are available for story mode and the rest are playable in versus mode.
With so many players to explore and Ultimate Jitsu moves to try out, this fighting game can be replayed over and over with different characters. Fans can have fun playing out dream matches which were never a part of the anime or manga.
“Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generation” may have similar gameplay to most any other fighting game, but with multiple characters, a players chance to improve fighting strategy and the story element the game is a great addition to Naruto and fighting game fans.
