Naruto and Boruto fans will find joy in the team-based, MOBA-like matches (both cooperative and competitive) that Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker offers, but it's difficult to recommend the game in it's actual state, with lots of connectivity problems. Given it's nature, we hope this problems will get fixed in the near future.

This might be the first Naruto game in a long time that does something new, blending anime with class-based online battles. The idea may seem a little strange but it works well, and it would be great to see Bandai Namco build off this with other anime franchises in future. Shinobi Striker is well worth your time if you like the Naruto series and even worth trying out if you just want a new multiplayer experience to get lost in.

It is true that it will not go down in history and that it lacks a bit more load in single player mode. An interesting story mode would have given some more arguments to a title that works well in its main facet: the online fight for teams. Maybe it's not a game for everyone, but if you're a Naruto fan you should give it a try.

Shinobi Striker is a different experience for reintroducing Naruto games, but not all of them are of the same quality.

Engaging, fast and frenetic, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker feels good in its attempt to recreate the action of both manga and anime, despite minor issues here and there.

Despite its dumb name Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker can provide a good time, but it needs much more variety in its online play to be worthwhile.

My time with Shinobi Striker was a boring, frustrating grind that I really don't think is worth your time. Even for the hardcore Naruto fans, I would say at least wait for a major price drop.

Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker has both its good and bad moments.  Unfortunately a lot of the bad moments for me was with the combat and constantly getting knocked down with barely anytime to defend myself when getting back up before the onslaught continued, but a lot of that I'm willing to chalk up to my own lack of skill.  Still, the VR Missions are enjoyable once you learn the nuances of combat, but don't expect to see me floating around the online lobbies any time soon.

Technical problems and imperfect controls prevent Shinobi Striker from really convincing, despite the mix of single player and multiplayer online could offer an interesting touch to the anime series.

Ultimately, Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is an entertaining, competitive, and addicting game that truly captures the visual style and overall feel of the source material.
