Not recommended for those who didn't watch or read Naruto. Otherwise - a must have for any Naruto fan. This is by far the best Storm game in my opinion. Naturally, it would make it better if developers could bring back such features as 4th combo, jutsu clashes, wall running, Storm 1 free roam, etc.. I could ramble about this for hours but nevermind that. They don't care anyways.. What's done is done and those removed features probably won't comeback ever. So here's a handful of pros: ? Storyline picks up from where Storm 3 left off and covers everything what's left. It's amazing as always: beautiful visuals, stunning boss battles. ? Biggest roster yet with the ability to choose between several jutsu for your character. Some characters got rebalanced or slightly changed. ? Leader switch system. It changed the game drastically. The transition is very smooth, fluid and accessible almost anytime. ? Rounds (best of 3). Matches are longer, therefore, you gain a chance to analyze your opponent and perform huge comebacks in the rounds to come. ? Elemental effects: ability to set players on fire with jutsus and explosive tags, bigger water and lightning attacks on water. ? Charged chakra dash. ? Reworked counter which helps to balance the game out. ? Upgraded visuals (more sparkles, particles), some objects and buildings can be destroyed on stage. ? Faster loading screens. (or should I say instant?) ? Better online experience: smoother battles, fixed ranked system, matching voices, character usage top. +- A little bit better in-game settings but still has a lot of room for improvement Cons: ? Rare frame drops. ? A few stages have been removed. ? Character accessories are gone (I wasn't a fan of them anyways) ? Ruined tournament mode. ? Frequent disconnections while in the middle of the match. ? Since this is the last Storm game, it lacks some new characters that were forgotten (like Swordsmen). An update to the majority of characters is needed too. ? Still images taken from the anime (with added effects like water splash or camera shake) during the first half of the game. All the other cutscenes are pre-rendered. Thus, their quality is pretty sloppy.
Although is awesome but I do noticed a significant difference. For one there is a character change where players are able to swap characters to characters, next is awakening. From Storm 3 some characters can be awaken by tilting the anolog stick and will be awaken as much as they want until the chakra has decreased. Next we have armor break. Armor break will allow players and enemies to deal more damage than usual with full/partial armor. So it's recommended for players to swap characters unless you are fighting solo lol. Next is Ultimate Jutsu. When it comes to Storm 3 you can activate the Ultimate Jutsu one or two time only but Storm 4 you are able to activate more than 2 times which is amazing and now all characters are even with the chakra and awakening
All the ninja are here for one last Storm, and it's a great one. A more fast-paced approach than its predecessors has made me enjoy this game more than the previous entries in the series, and the expanded roster and chapter-based story mode to relive the battles of the manga have reinforced my decision to pick this game over its predecessors every time. Multiplayer (locally) is also great fun, and something many PC games forego, so it's great to see that remain a consistent part of this series' ports.
I love Naruto and its story, and the Ultimate Ninja Storm series do a pretty good job of retellling the events while providing a nice interactivity with them. The combat feels satisfying, the QTE events are beyond epic and getting an S on a hard boss just feels rewarding. Even if you have no idea what Naruto is, this game is for you if you're into combat games with strategy, items, special combos and moves.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 plays like basically any other anime fighting game; you run around a 3d fighting arena using flashy attacks, dodges, and combos in order to defeat your opponent. It is very fun but if you aren’t familiar with this kind of gameplay you are going to have trouble enjoying this game. Additionally enjoying the Naruto franchise is necessary to enjoy this game. While Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is primarily a fighting game, it does have a story mode that follows the manga/anime and does a good job of capturing the over-the-top nature of the Naruto story finale. Additionally, the story mode adds in various set pieces and battles against (and as) giant monsters that do not appear in the standard multiplayer component, and these would be right at home in this game despite bringing back memories of battles from games like Asura’s Wrath and Metal Gear Rising Revengeance. It would seem like Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a good game, but as with Bandai Namco games recently, the PC port is abysmal. Glitches, framerate issues, lag, lack of optimization, etc. You name it, it’s a problem with the PC port of this game. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a good game if you are a Naruto fan, but only if you don’t play it on the PC. Maybe it will be fixed, maybe it won’t, but right now if you want to play the game, avoid the PC version.
