Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 refines the gameplay to the absolute best of the series and offers a large roster of playable characters. Unfortunately, it squanders all of that potential with a short and poorly presented campaign fought against buggy AI, a forgettable Adventure Mode and online matches that are plagued with connectivity problems. The Ultimate Ninja Storm series sadly does not end on a high note.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

If you're a Naruto fan or just interested in a colourful brawler to waste a few hours on then you've found it with Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. To that end, this game is great. If you're looking for something deeper or more complex, then this probably is not it… Still, it makes for a better fighter than J-Stars Victory VS.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a great-looking, fast-paced anime fighting game that remains true to its roots for better and for worse.

Between the gorgeous graphics, solid combat, and multiple game modes this impressive fighter isn't necessarily just for anime fans.

Naruto Shippuden – Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 liefert den wohl bisher größten Roster der Serie mit 61 spielbaren Charakteren und verbessert sich auch deutlich in Sachen Gameplay und Präsentation. Leider hinkt der Titel in Sachen Kampagne und Online Multiplayer weit hinter den Vorgängern und bleibt dadurch eher nur was für Neueinsteiger der Serie, die gerne mal offline ein paar Runden mit ihren Freunden mit möglichst vielen Charakteren spielen wollen.

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.

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.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 really embraces the style its anime roots. The frantic combat is very enjoyable, despite an initially steep learning curve, and there's a multitude of modes and scenarios to duke it out in. Combine that that with stunning, flashy action packed scenes and you don't just get the best looking Naruto game but possibly the best looking Anime style title.

I'm no expert on Naruto, but even I became a fan after playing through Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. There's so much effort put into the presentation alone that it's hard not to be engaged, and the gameplay (while simple) allows you to play across a massive roster of characters for some really cool looking and feeling battles.

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.

Full Burst is not an easy game to get into, but it's a fun, engaging and exciting experience if you're willing to put a little effort into it. For fans of the show it's a must-have title and while it's not the perfect introduction to the anime, it's perfectly possible for newcomers to have a lot of fun here too.
