For those complaining about the graphics, it's using the dated GC engine, so it's to be expected.
At least we can say each console has it's own Naruto series that offers something different (Wii - 4 player party battles, 360 - Platforming/Beat 'em up, PS3 - Adventure/Fighting).

Uhm ... perhaps the reason it doesn't look all that hot is because the hardware is a generation behind. Let's not make excuses for low-spec hardware.

And that's all that matters, clearly. The sales>game quality.

Don't forget the Iwata signed cheque in the mail.

It's funny because as far as Naruto games go this team has created the best fighting engine seen on all 3 systems by far. I won't be buying this though as I own Shippiden Ex2 thanks to the freeloader Datel releases. It is the best Naruto fighter existing at the
moment and the PS3 game may not compare, especially since the story is years behind! Current up to date shippuden roster FTW

i dont know but it seems that the graphic looks good only in "in-game sequences".i think i cant compare this with the ps3 one,but ps3 can done sometin wat any other consoles didnt-can make an impressive in-game graphic no sequencess!so this game make no interests in me.ulti ninja3,uzumaki chronicles1,2...and like these games on ps2 makes me better sence.this is a bad imitation of any naruto game...oh and try to make less characters but better cell-shaded.oh and background looks terrible too( 5.0-story 6.5-gameplay 4.5-design 6.0-presentation...overall-5.5(

Correction: 360 and PS3 versions combined.

I can't believe this Naruto fad is still going strong though

@neoryu:

Good, good.
It's a first for the series under this dev, to have a Hub/Village to fuck around, isn't it?

The village/world cell-shading doesn't really look beter than that on Rise of a ninja, less colourful and detailed, but this will probably kill it when they show the leaf village footage... in motion.
Trully remarkable Animation work.

About the game

  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (48 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (51 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (2 Hours ago)
