Road to Boruto it's a fun and spectacular fighting game that, even if it offers less content than Naruto SUNS Trilogy, Includes all the DLC, the biggest roster of fighters seen in the series and offers a more polished visuals, but not free of little problems here and there, like fps drops in adventure mode.

Road To Boruto is a successful expansion that provides more of what fans of the Ultimate Ninja Storm series love. Fun characters, including the adult versions of those that Naruto fans have grown up with, an enjoyable storyline, and yet more visually incredible battles to take part in. If this is genuinely the end of the CyberConnect2's Ninja Storm run, they've gone out on a high.
The Road to Boruto DLC has some great combat and cut scenes, but the whole expansion doesn't feel as grand as the original game did.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 went out on top when it released last year and Road to Boruto is an extension of that finale from CyberConnect 2 that brings the series full circle.
The gameplay is exactly what one would expect from Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, as it offers up simplified, yet satisfying, fighting.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 - Road to Boruto is a great addition to the the most beautiful fighting game based on the anime, which expands an already huge roster of available characters, but suffers from a crumpled story and the same type of side quests. The empty and uninteresting city is pulling the game down, but the situation is partly corrected with an impressive epic scale battles, which should please all fans of the series.

Expansions are rare when it comes to fighting games, but Road to Boruto manages to add a reasonable chunk of content to a brawler that's already stuffed with things to do. Most of what's on offer is nothing new, but if you've been looking for an excuse to leap back into CyberConnect 2's super polished title, then this additional adventure is as good a reason as any.
With its new narrative and additional characters being as well-received as they are, Road to Boruto is a solid expansion that is somewhat let down by uneven side quests and a far too brief story mode.
Thanks to some welcome changes to its core systems – mainly the improved battle mechanics and the great onus on story content – Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto is the most accomplished and enjoyable instalment in the series yet. While it's certainly more for the hardcore Naruto crowd, it's nevertheless a meaty package with an impressively vast roster, a huge amount of unlockable content and the addition of the film-tie in for the Baruto storyline. If you love all things Naruto, this fourth instalment is a must-have addition to your ninja collection.
A port to the Switch along with all content up to Road to Boruto makes this release of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 well worth picking up.
