Our videos of Ultimate Ninja Storm 3

Manga fans must have been thrilled last week with the arrival of Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Since we received our copy of the game, we did our best to get you some gameplay footage showing the very beginning of the game, but you should know that our Naruto expert wasn't available to play when we captured the four videos you will find inside.

The way they recreate things, especially stuff that has never really been fully explained in the manga/anime, is really impressive

Also the voice work they do is amazing too. They basically create episodes for this game

Fantastic animations during those supermoves or the cinematics when they start fighting, its exactly like how animes look like, so good.

Too bad that most of the time you're damned to watch the whole thing instead of being able to play it -> Lenghty cutscenes with lots of blabla (that really only the die hard Naruto fans will be interested in), even Kojima could not stretch that further, but at least he backs his stuff up with solid gameplay. So Story Mode is basically as shallow as that of a KoF or BlazBlue but without the depth of a solid fighter, the little few exploration passages can't really help it when you sum it up and that's really a pity because i do like the visual style tremendously.

It is made for the die hards. Of which there are many

How were the Ubi games received by the die hards ? Good too i think.
Why not broaden your audience with free roam exploration then ?
Seems silly not to do...

Love the anime but even I know they know that everybody knows that only apprx 30% of the Naruto anime is amazing normally that constitutes the intro and end of a saga. That remaining 70% is all the filler and tripe for reminiscing episodes that literally serve no purpose besides for debateably enhancing the anticipation and drama for the tale of the saga. Now I hear the UNS3 includes this filler but it has absolutely no purpose being there as everything has already happened in the anime and in some cases precious Naruto games, therefore the anticipation and suspense is all gone, we play Naruto for the spectacle.

What I would like to see is a Naruto game that just says....... you know's obvious that fans are buying our games lets just use that 30% greatness and forget about explaining anything and just deliver the drama, UNS 2 came close but there wasn't enough. Scrap the roaming stuff or do it in a way that it serves as a hub to launchin a saga like 3D version of Super Mario Bros.

That would be a real tribute.
