Our review:

Kids say (5 ):

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 lets players play as their favorite Naruto character and fight against other characters in battles that are more focused on using the best strategy to win than they are in doling out extreme and over-the-top violence. The Adventure mode introduces elements from the TV series and lets players live out classic moments and battles from there, and also gives players who are new to the Naruto franchise a basic overview of the characters. The game features beautiful graphics and has a deep battle system that will occupy players for hours as they try to master the best combination of attacks, magic, and defense. It is a worthy addition to the long line of Naruto video games.

Online interaction: Players can compete in one-on-one fights against other players online. It is possible to have unrestricted voice chat against competitors, however this feature can also be disabled, which Common Sense Media recommends doing for young teen players.
