What Have You Played This Week?

I spent most of the week reviewing Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 and didn't have much time to play many other games inbetween news reporting and reviewing the game.

Pokèmon Heart Gold РDS РI got the thrid gym badge and defeated the Sudowoodo that blocks the path. I haven't gotten much further, but i'm also trying to win the bug contest to win a Sun Stone.

??? - Beta - ??? - I only got a couple of games in, but all I can say is this beta is very impressive and I look forward to playing more...sorry but I can't say anything else.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 – PS3 – this was the game I was reviewing, and you can find the review here. Simply put i have a great time playing the game, spent over 20 hours so far, and there is still more to unlock. i won't go into detail here as my review says it all.

Did you manage to play more games than I have over the week, or do you have any comments on my experiences or questions about the games i've played? If you do, feel free to add them in the comments section.


Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 Review - 9.0


Game
Platform Played On
9.0/10
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2
PlayStation 3

The Good
  • Background Art
  • Easy Control Scheme
  • Length/Amount Of Gameplay
  • Tone Of The Game
  • Good Use Of Trophies
  • Hand Drawn World is stunning
The Bad
  • Lengthy Install
  • Plenty Of Load Screens Throughout The Game
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 does have a couple of technical issues that have lowered its review score, but the game is too good to be dismissed because of loading and occasional anti aliasing issues. The controls are very simple and, even though there is no tutorial, they are easy to pick up and have surprising depth to them. The games story mode has two parts, the main story and the side quests, and because of this the game is surprisingly long. But the games length is never an issue as pacing in the game is spot on and there is plenty do to during and after the main story line. The main story is full of high and lows and the game does great in conveying this to the player, with the last couple of chapters in particular able to tug at heart strings. The game looks great. The hand drawn world simply looks amazing in HD. The major fights in the story have some spectacular QTE moments which are stunning to watch, but even general fights look good, and can be just as fast paced, and epic. Ultimately, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 is a great game and well worth playing.
