Usually as more and more games get added to a series things can all get… well a little boring shall we say? Not this time! Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations takes all the great modes from Naruto games before it (story mode, online tournaments, local multiplayer) and throws in a heap of new, exciting features to keep you coming back for more. There are now 72 playable characters, so you are sure to find your favourite in here somewhere!
One new feature is Beast Mode, which allows characters who are just about to be defeated to transform into a beast that has really powerful attacks. This gives those who aren’t experienced at playing Naruto a chance against a seasoned fan – making them powerful when they are weak. It’s great to see features like this included as it means you can play with family and friends more easily!
Also new is the Cancel Moves mode that gives you an opportunity to break your opponent’s combo pattern at any time while being attacked. This will help you get out of some sticky situations where previously all you could do was watch as your health bar dropped. These new features, added to the classic beat-’em-up gameplay, are a recipe for success. It’s a fighter for fans and newbies alike!
