Lead Naruto and 26 of his ninja buddies on missions and multi- player battles in this new game for DS! We review it here.

The ninja mayhem of Shonen Jump's Naruto is hitting the Nintendo DS with the new Naruto: Ninja Council 3 video game! It takes the action of the hit anime TV show and puts the characters in your control, ready to challenge missions, form teams and more. But, is this Naruto game more spaz than ninja? Find out with Gary's Naruto game review!

Chakras and Combos!

This DS game lets you control Naruto and 26 of his friends and enemies in 49 missions. You pick your fave ninja for each mission and try to complete it by running, jumping, attacking and unleashing powerful jutsu moves with the touch pad. The missions let you unlock characters, then you can hook up with your friends for wireless, four-player, multiplayer ninja showdowns!

Teamwork, Multiplayer and Mayhem!

Playing as your fave ninja is fun, but getting to pick extra jutsu moves from the other ninja you've unlocked is like building a ninja team! The graphics are awesome too - they're all old-school 2D, but the characters look great and move really well.

Mission Failure!

This game is super-light on story, unless you're a Naruto fan you won't know who anybody is or what's going on. The attacks are all super close-range too, except the ranged attacks but the controls for them are unreliable. More power-ups would be cool too!

Hokage or Spaz?

Unleashing a ninja smackdown with the characters from the hit Naruto cartoon is a blast! It's lacking a story, so unless you know your Naruto trivia it's a bit confusing. But it's full of fun missions, lots of stuff to unlock, wicked jutsu attacks and an awesome multiplayer mode.

Thumbs Up:

  • Voices from the anime!
  • Unleash awesome jutsu attacks with the touch screen.
  • Cool graphics and lots of characters.
  • Multiplayer battles are a blast!
  • Thumbs Down:

  • It needs more power-ups
  • Super short-range attacks.
  • Game Rating: 4

    Available for: Nintendo DS.

    I'm not saying the characters they have are bad choices, they just don't have enough characters to choose from considering the Wii U is more powerful then a PS3 and a Xbox 360.

    super Smash bros for wii u doesn't have any new characters that makes me want to pay $50 when the magorady of the game is Brawl with upscalled + graphics, touch screen gimics and 30 (something) characters on BOTH the wii u and the 3ds verson. for the 3dS it's alriht, but for the Wii U this isn't lookin to good. The wii u is capable of more then that if it can run assasin's Creed 3. I'm still gettin the ame though.

    Well, we both hope that Super Smash Bros for Wii U will really save it. I doubt that, but I hope Nintendo doesn't screw up this version like they did with Mario Kart 8. Mario Kart 8 SUCKS compared to Mario Kart Wii... maybe it was best for you to rent the game, because you would SLIGHTLY be disappointed when you beat the game and play online. By the way, I'm getting the new 3DS LL that's coming out next year.

    To make a point, that Nintendo needs to do something or the Wii U will be the next virtual boy with no ames. I don't mean literally, no aames but it's missing 3rd party games that last gen consoles are etting such as the PS3 and Xbox 360.
