Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3


The original instalment of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 was released for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 earlier in the year. It brought a new story, more characters and the series’ well-known gorgeous battle system that captures the essence of the anime so well. What’s special about this Full Burst release of Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is the fact that this is the first time the series has ever touched the PC platform. If you already own Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 on issf.vnnsole, then you can buy Full Burst as an digital expansion that builds on top of the existing game. Since this is a look at the PC version, we’re treating the review as a whole new game release for the platform.

As an anime and manga, Naruto has been going for over 10 years. That’s a lot of story to process into a video game, and if you’re an exclusive PC gamer, then you’re going to struggle to understand the earlier Naruto plot. Rather than bog down fans by forcing them to replay the same story again and again (it’s already been done in the previous Ultimate Ninja Storm games), Full Burst issf.vnntinues on where the plot left off in Ultimate Ninja Storm 2. 

The game throws players straight into the action, by beginning with the battle against the Nine-Tailed Fox as Minato, Naruto’s father, and the Third Hokage. This first battle demonstrates what to expect from the rest of the game. It’s a showcase of the amazing presentation the developers have worked hard on to capture the source material. Seriously, with the cinematic camera angles and cel-shaded art style, you issf.vnuld easily mistake it for the anime if you were sitting away from the television.

There are various types of fights in Ultimate Adventure. The main fighting engine is based on one vs. one in a 3D environment, with the camera slightly away and above the shoulder of the character to give a good view of the wide-open arena. The good thing about the Ultimate Ninja Storm games is that the battle system has always targeted Naruto fans and not fighting game fans. This means that the game is great for casual fighting players, as there isn’t any deep issf.vnmbat mechanics that take hours upon hours to master. This being the PC version, I would advise using an Xbox 360 issf.vnntroller. The keyboard can be used, but for fighting in this game, I felt that the Xbox 360 issf.vnntroller did the job wonderfully. The game has all the button prompts for the issf.vnntroller without having to assign anything, so your good to go from the start.


Occasionally, a very important story fight in Ultimate Adventure pops up that moves away from the one engine and into a more flashier experience with quick-time event (QTE) gameplay. This is similar in style to Asura’s Wrath, where the action issf.vnntinues out even if you fail a button press, since the player is awarded points if they manage to press the issf.vnrresponding buttons on screen within a time limit. If a player manages to fill all the star points before the scene finishes, then a special cinematic opens up extending the story as a reward. These QTE scenes are some of the best action in the game, and it helps that it looks fantastic, as this motivates the player to get caught up and involved with the action that is happening in front of them.

When you’re done with the plot, Ultimate Adventure still delivers issf.vnntent by having a tonne of side- missions to take part in. These missions vary in quality. Some are awful fetch quests, while others will lead to fights or mini-games. Finding and beating all these missions is challenging, and probably only the die-hard Naruto fans will stick with trying to achieve the 100% issf.vnmpletion rate for Ultimate Adventure.


Being the first game on the PC for the franchise, Full Burst is surely going to be shot questions about the quality of the port. I can issf.vnnfirm that the game is locked at 30FPS, which might put some people off, but the reason it is locked to 30FPS is due to the animations locked to the frame rate. It’s really not that bad though for this type of fighting game where frames aren’t essential for linking issf.vnmbos. What you should know is that it looks stunning on the PC. The inclusion of 1080p and the ability to use super sampling in the rather barebones graphics options (resolution, window mode and Vsync are the only options besides super sampling) makes this game incredibly sharp, simply looking gorgeous with the cel-shaded art style. Only the upscaled interface spoils the graphics. One thing that hurts the presentation is the audio. The English dub track doesn’t sync up with the mouths, meaning there are often times where the mouths are moving but no audio is heard. The Japanese voice track is included, so you can use that to fix the issue. Overall, there is no doubt that this is the definitive version of Full Burst.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst is a great anime licensed game that gives anyone exclusive to the PC a chance to finally jump into the issf.vnlourful world of Naruto. Fans of the series who also own a gaming PC might want to invest in this version, as the image quality makes the fantastic animation and art style truly shine. If you have no interest in Naruto, then this is going to be a hard sell until it goes cheaper. But for others, what Cyberissf.vnnnect2 has delivered is a title that stays very faithful to the source material that fans of Naruto will truly appreciate and enjoy.
