Whether you haven’t played a Naruto game or want to experience the extra Road to Boruto content, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto is one of the best anime fighters around. Its huge roster of characters, great recap of the last few anime arcs, and awesome porting job make this one a must have on the Switch.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road To Boruto is a really well-done port of the original game on the Nintendo Switch offering a complete package full of content for fans of the anime to enjoy. While the combat system of the game isn’t the deepest there is still a lot of fun to be had especially thanks to the very stylish and jaw-dropping visuals that CyberConnect2 has been known for since the start of the Ultimate Ninja Storm series. I can recommend it to anime fans who are huge into Naruto but haven’t had the chance to play this game on other systems.

if you’re a hardcore fan who loves reliving the epic endeavours of one best Mangas of all time then this is for you, decent size story mode with plenty of replay value with the online and adventure modes.

Despite a great and exciting gameplay, Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 has a weak story. Using anime's original voice actors and great music are the strong points of the game but online problems is unacceptable for a 4th installment of a franchise.

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is an average but reasonable send-off to the franchise. It's not a game for casual fans who will probably be lost in the story of random villains and long-running plots, but those who've followed Naruto from start to will be pleased to see the stylish finish to the series. The gameplay isn't enough to justify upgrading from the previous game in the series, and even longtime fans may want to wait for a price drop before jumping in.

A great end to the story and a fun Naruto themed fighting game that fans won't want to miss out on. Even if Naruto isn't your thing I would still say it's worth a try.

Naurto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is the last entry in the series and it is arguably the best one yet. CyberConnect2 has nailed the aesthetics of anime/manga and perfected the combat system from earlier games to create this satisfying conclusion in the Ultimate Ninja Storm series. If you are a die-hard Naruto fan, this game is a must buy. If you are new to the series, then you can still pick this game to enjoy the spectacular story and action.

While there's plenty more that a true fan would get out of this experience, as a bystander, there's not much of a draw here for me.

It could be the end of an era. And if so, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a fantastic send-off for the series. Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 have done some amazing work here, and everyone who's a fan of the show needs to play this game.

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is not for everyone, but to its credit it doesn't try to be. This game shines with pride knowing it gave it's all to celebrate fans of the Naruto Shippuden anime and doesn't look back. At its worst Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is just as good as any of its predecessors and at its best it only made things better. It's functional, fun, and crammed full of enough different modes to satisfy anyone interested in giving it chance. Anything beyond that is just a matter of taste, but if you're even bothering to wonder about a Naruto tie-in video game, that really shouldn't be much of an obstacle.

The simplistic nature of the combat system means that fights, though enjoyable, can become quite repetitive

A reworked yet subtle combat system, visuals that'll make you think that you've fallen under a Genjutsu spell and a story that has finally reached its climax. This final chapter is purely for the fans.

Bandai Namco knows what their fans want in a Naruto game and for the most part, they have delivered. The game has solid controls and an outstanding roster of characters but suffers from too many flaws to allow the average gamer to drop $60 right now. Wait for this one to show up in a bargain bin because the few things added into the series at this point do nothing to make up for its shortcomings.

NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja 4 sets new standards for the series. It excels in nearly every aspect, while merely stumbling here and there on minor issues.

There is an almost unbridled energy to the Naruto show and manga that translates over to the video game medium very effectively. The combat is not the deepest, but there is nuance to learn and master and the story and set pieces help to deliver on that frantic energy the show is known for.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is another enjoyable instalment of this franchise that both plays, looks and sounds great on the PlayStation 4. If you're looking for a fun fighter which doesn't take itself too seriously or has complex controls, then you really should check out Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 as it's a very solid fighter!
