Gorgeous action game, but troublesome controls mar play.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (5 ):

When a game looks as great as Naruto, it’s a shame that the gameplay doesn’t even contain one tenth the level of polish. The oddly mapped controls mixed with the choices made in game, such as losing a throwing weapon when you are hit or having enemies stand completely still until you attempt to attack, really detract from what potentially could’ve been an excellent title. Because the game is so unsatisfying to play, if you have a fan of this brand, try renting it before you buy it. If you're not a fan, than you might want to skip it.
