Honestly Naruto is my favorite anime and you get most of that story with these games and Naruto was never a really bloody anime but there is some present is storm2,3 ,and 4 but it is not much it is VERY censored compared to the anime and I wish they would uncensor it storm 2 had one cutscene with a little blood storm 3 had way more blood but it's moderate and storm 4 had A LOT OF BLOOD but it was black so you could mistake it for some type of ink or something like that also Naruto is a hero and it holds lots of great positive messages and it can educate you about teamwork and friendship also since it's a Japanese game not to be racist there is revealing outfits and a harem jutsu Google a harem to know what it is I say 15+ because storm 4 should've been rated M if it wasn't censored and curing is mild-moderate the most taboo word they say is "Ass" If you think your kids can handle this then this is a very fun game series to play!!!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (3 ):

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.
