As with its brethren in the Ultimate Ninja Storm series, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3's approach to depicting super-powered ninja action is best described as a bit "Hollywood," with all pros and cons that such a descriptor might attach.

Indeed, like a stereotypical Hollywood adaptation of some geek-favorite franchise, Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is bigger, glitzier, faster, louder, and more colorful than its manga source, but it's also simpler, shallower, and even a tad sanitized.

Nevertheless, it, like its peers, remains a grand spectacle, capturing the best in anime excess and standing tall as one of the few, proud proofs that it is in fact possible to make a triple-A "anime game."

TGS: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is wacky in a new way
by Allistair Pinsof

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure was an odd fighting game for Capcom that was loved by many despite its flaws, in the West. In the East, however, it was one of the first videogames based off a very popular manga series. It's a series with a lot of character, interesting personalities, and a unique style.

The Capcom game captured the world of JoJo well, but now it's CyberConnect2's turn to take a stab at it and bring it to life in a 3D fighting game with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle

The result is one of the goofiest and most accessible fighting games I've played in some time.

The Naruto series of games is another in a long line of fighting titles based on a popular anime series. What seems to set this series apart from the others, however, is its focus on a pick-up-and-play attitude. While many games will focus on a series' storied history (or just its story) Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations aims to streamline everything so the focus is on the gameplay itself.

This is both a good thing and a bad thing.

Becoming a ninja in Naruto Shippuden: UNS Generations photo
Becoming a ninja in Naruto Shippuden: UNS Generations
by Wesley Ruscher

If there's one thing I know squat about, it’s the Naruto universe. It’s not because I don’t like anime -- I love it, but the boy in the orange track suit and all his ninja buddies never really appealed to me. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a Dragonball Z era and felt like Naruto was trying to be the equivalent for a new generation, or perhaps my taste in Japanese animation had evolved away from the epic fighting formula that filled my teen years.

Regardless of my lack of interest, one thing's for sure: I’ve always had a secret desire to spend some time with the series’ videogame adaptations. Their vibrant, colorful visuals appear to capture the essence of controlling your own action-packed anime episode -- at least from the trailers I've seen -- so when the chance to check out the latest game in the series, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, arose I quickly volunteered myself for the task.
