Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Review - I AM A NINJA

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is solid, both in gameplay and narrative.

It's fun and wellmade.
I don't even follow the cartoon. Honest, I don't. But I love this game.

If anyone wanna hit me up and have some matches lemme know. :P

You know how Soul Caliber had Darth Vader in it? Naruto seems like the perfect vehicle to stick Kylo Ren into. He and Sasuke could have an Emo off before discussing the finer points of killing loved ones as a path to power.

I picked it up on release day and breezed through story mode in a little under 3 hours. Mind you, I skipped some of the cutscenes because I watched the series since the beginning, and a lot of the final plot twists are dumber than snake mittens. Haven't tried Adventure Mode, but it sounds like fun, and PvP is a complete mess because The Last Sasuke is Tier 0, and easily the most played character. Still, the game is fun for being the final one in the series.

Ugh... reminds me of something someone posted about Sasuke and the ending of the manga.

"Sasuke is emotionally absent, and doesn't care about his wife or daughter. Sakura is dim, and either weeps passively or aggressively destroys their house, and is still mindlessly devoted to the boy she had a crush on despite him trying to kill multiple times. I can't imagine how their daughter will grow up to be anything other than a drug addict or porn star. I expected a series with magic ninjas spewing fire, not a post-modern deconstruction of abusive relationships."

Nice, I ended up really liking Ninja storm 3 full burst. I'll have to pick this up sometime.

I thought this series was supposed to be about ninjas. Sneaky, stealthy shadow warriors.

Throwing fireballs that explode with the force of a MOAB and then turning into a 50-story tall Godzilla-esque monster is very un-ninja like.

Caramel Frappe:
are you honestly telling me Obito (Jubi fusion) can be beaten by TenTen?

I know right? Everybody knows that nobody can be beaten by TenTen.

Caramel Frappe:
My only criticism is that certain characters should be OP as hell. Like, I understand that they need to make every character balanced enough to compete with anyone else, but are you honestly telling me Obito (Jubi fusion) can be beaten by TenTen? ... It's kind of immersion breaking and lame, but I get the logic behind them being at even levels.

I'll have to pick up this game at some point, glad it's not a dud or let down like the previous title.

Pffft, even more hilarious is the thought that Krillin can wipe the floor with Broly in the DBZ fighting games. Or how about Radditz taking down Kid Buu? :P

They're not horribly overpowered, but there is a distinct difference between Sasukes final form and like, Ino. I used to dick around in Revolution and set up insane matches like that. Naruto/Kyuubi merged vs Ino? Okay, I'll play Ino and holy crap Narutos ability just took 3/4 a bar from me while mine barely did 1/4. Iruka vs Madara, lets go Iruka! And I can't even touch him while his basic chakra ability wipes out 1/4 of my health. God damnit!

It did make winning super fun though. Seeing Ino stand tall over Sasuke was always fun even if it did only happen like once every 10 matches.

You know, me and my friend just had a fanboy/nostalgia off for the Clash of Ninja games two days ago. I'll pick up two copies once the price goes down
