Violence & Scariness
Characters punch, kick, slice, use special (often magical) moves to deplete an opponent's life meter. Magic moves include launching fireballs, electrical blasts, summoning fantastic creatures like a big wooden golem. Some cut-scenes show blood splatter, gore, including people impaled by a sword, stabbed.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy is a collection of previously released fighting games based on the extremely popular Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm franchise. In these games, players punch and kick opponents, as well as use blades and magic, to defeat multiple enemies throughout the game -- whether it's one-on-one in an area or in larger group battles. While clearly an animated adventure, the game is rooted in combat, and along with violence there's some blood and gore, more so in the cut-scene sequences than during actual gameplay. Some characters are stabbed or impaled. You can also summon a bikini-clan harem with busty women who caress the opponent.
Is It Any Good?
This collection of fighting games provides plenty of awesome content for fans of the wildly popular anime, while also improving and including additional gameplay.The more recent games look and play better than the remastered, almost decade-old Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles -- and there are a lot of boring dialogue sequences not easily skipped -- but for those fans of the franchise who haven't yet invested in these games, it's an admirable collection with a lot of variety, progressive fighting mechanics, and smoothly animated characters. In fact, because the ninja-esque combat is pretty straightforward, it's ideal for those new to Japanese fighting games. Essentially, there's a button to attack your opponent, another to kick, and a third to throw. There are also special moves, and timing plays an increasingly important role, but none of it is overly difficult to master -- even with some harder boss fights you'll come across. The games get better with every iteration, so there's something to look forward to, if you decide to play in sequential order. The final game's roster of about five dozen fighters and tag team matches make it the series' finest. At $79, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy isn't cheap, so you definitely need to be a fan of Naruto to get the most out of it. But with four full games, including remastered ones, as well as bonus content, there's a lot to like about this collection.
