Naruto and his friends (and enemies!) are putting their ninja skills to the test on the Playstation 2 in the new Naruto: Ultimate Ninja video game! This fighting game is based on the hit Naruto anime TV show about the young ninja with the dream to become the Hokage, the master ninja, of the Village Hidden in the Leaves. So what's the deal with the game? Gary's checked out the ninja action and here's his game review!

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja - Fighting Action 101

Welcome to Naruto's Ninja Academy in the Village Hidden in the Leaves! You get to control Naruto, or one of 13 other ninja, and kick the stuffing out of other ninjas. You can follow the battles of your fave ninja from the TV show, battle any two ninjas against each other or complete special ninja missions. Each battle earns you cash you can spend on collecting items and unlocking stuff. You and a friend can also play two-player battles!

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja - A+ Ninja Action

This game makes kicking butt as Naruto, or one of his friends, super easy! There are lots of really cool ninja moves you can unleash, plus each character has a crazy super move they can use once they have enough chakra. The levels are great too, with lots of places to jump to and power-ups to grab.

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja - Hidden Lameness

If you're a Naruto fan you'll notice that the voices in the game sound different from the anime. Also, since all the attacks are done with one button, the combos are pretty limited. Collecting items is weak too because you can spend your $$$ for a random item and get nothing!

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja - Deadly Ninjas and Powerful Jutsu?

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja is a stylin' fighting game that's packed with awesome moves and is super easy to play! There are a few weak spots, but it's a solid game that's fun even if you aren't a Naruto fan.

    I know, but you can say the name such as "I just got this game from GameStop." THAT'S what I meant. If you can do it in comments, why can't you do it here?
