Naruto Shippunden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations

So far so good!

Out of the last Ninja Storm series of games, this one is by far the most improved version out in the open right now. The storyline gives new and old players a summary of what happens in the ninja world. You have options of many other story lines you can play in any order, but you have to play certain ones to unlock the next one.  The story doesn't confuse the players; whether new to or knowledgeable of the series, it gets right to the point of what's happening and then leaving some obvious questions unanswered.

Mostly Ultimate Ninja Storm had a wide selection of characters you can play as, whether you're a short, medium or long range fighter. The characters will fit your playing style if you just play around with them first instead of just picking one character. From over 70 characters to choose from, the possibilities are endless when you are done unlocking the characters from story mode.

Other than story mode, there are other modes you can play in the game. There is online play, where you can challenge other people from all over the world to see who the better player is. Then there is free battle, and it gives you options to play either in a tournament, survival, versus mode or training mode. Tournament mode is if you have three of more players and you want to play in a competitive playing style. Survival mode is playing a different character one after another; the only thing is that your health will recover depending on how much damage you took. Versus mode is just the basic one on one with a computer or a friend. Training mode lets you try out all the characters you unlocked to see how they play in combat.

The gameplay is fairly simple if you know what you are doing. The only controversial thing is that people are either complaining or glad that the substitution log is on another bar rather than on your chakra(energy) meter. Timekeeping and strategy is key to playing this game. It's not just run and beat the crap out of the opponent, you have to deal with them cautiously or else they will get you in a matter of seconds. The graphics are gorgeous, capturing the tone of the anime and the manga very well, never in a dull setting.
