Despite an excessive amount of loading screens which will have you questioning the 3GB mandatory install, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 oozes with a vast amount of Chakra. Sexy cell-shaded graphics are flanked by a strong story and fun, interesting characters. While the story might confuse those who are not fans of the anime, the fun and deep combat will keep them in the fight. The adventure mode can become a bit tedious in between fights and with it being essential to unlock the full roster, it could scare off potential buyers who just want to hop on and fight with a full cast.

Unfortunately, those great moments are separated by a whole lot of forgettable traveling back and forth through a world that looks gorgeous but that you can't interact with in any interesting ways, and although the fighting system works well enough in the context of the story, it doesn't have the depth necessary to stand on its own for very long. But the good moments are good enough to make up for the game's shortcomings, and you'll remember the intensity of those epic battles long after the tedium of what's in between has faded from memory.

The combat can be slightly uninvolving at times, and the exploration side of proceedings serves little more than to connect one battle to the next, but the experience as a whole is surprisingly enjoyable. The game does a fantastic job of recreating pivotal moments from the show, the authenticity enhanced with some truly second-to-none visuals. It's one of those games that - while not all that deep - is incredibly satisfying to play, even for those that know nothing of the show.
