Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Although control is a little stiff and there are a few too many fetch-quests in the game, Naruto: Rise of a Ninja succeeds in doing justice to the Naruto franchise. It also doesn't hurt that cut scenes in the game are pulled straight from the cartoon. Rise of a Ninja shouldn't disappoint Naruto fans, and if you aren't a fan going in, you'll probably be one by the end.
