Summary

Three epic Naruto games, one handy disc!

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm
Differing from the arena-based battles favoured by Tekken, Dead or Alive and Soul Calibur, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm takes the fight from the arena and out into an explorable world where the player can roam and use the environment the their advantage.

But hold on - it's not all about fighting! Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm features an "Ultimate Mission" adventure mode. With 100 separate missions, the mode takes players through the tale told in the original animated TV series and through to the Sasuke Retrieval storyline.

Powered as it is by the mighty PS3, the visuals easily compare with the high quality animation of the TV series - essential to conveying the spectacles that are the battles between the amazing powers possessed by the game's characters and the colossal, legendary enemy creatures of the Naruto universe. To assist in these epic clashes, players can select their dream three-man team and instruct allies to defend or perform attacks.

With its mixture of 25 playable characters, cinematic-quality story, free roaming adventure and open battle grounds, Naruto fans without a PS3 must surely be thinking of raiding the piggy bank...

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 starts off with a pretty grim outlook on things. Female lead character Sakura is on her knees against a backdrop of rubble what looks to be the remains of a village. She calls out for Naruto just as one of the criminal Akatsuki warriors surveys the damage and plots for a final blow. From there, we get to play through the events that took place that led to this wave of chaos and destruction.

In this interactive retelling of the Naruto Shippuden story arc, we get to play as the feisty ninja - all grown up, after going on something of a wilderness sabbatical with a ninja tutor. It seems that the Akatsuki hasn't yet given up on its mission to extract the mythical beasts that lie dormant within Naruto and fellow cursed teenager Gaara, and it is in fact a kidnapping of the latter that kickstarts the quest to stop the villainous organisation at all costs.

Fusing the frantic action of a one-on-one fighting game with the exploration and backstory of an adventure title, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 keeps the gameplay fresh and offers a lot of depth to the tried and tested beat'em up genre. Use the help of companions found in the story to assist you in battles, create new items that can be used in the arena and learn new techniques that can cause some explosive damage.

Ultimate Ninja Storm 3: Full Burst
Naruto is back, and things just keep getting bigger and bigger. Based on the fan-favourite anime series Naruto Shippuden, Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 boasts a hurricane of action and adventure sure to go down well with fans of the orange-suited ninja kid.

The game features the biggest roster of characters seen in a Naruto game so far, meaning you're sure to get chance to get stuck in with some of your favourites. That includes no less than 80 playable characters, so there's plenty of choice on offer.

In the single-player mode you'll fight through the events of the Fourth Great Ninja War. For the first time, players can interact with the storyline even as it plays in Japan and streams online. There's one-versus-many action as well as titanic boss battles so you can flex your different fighting muscles.

You can take things beyond the story mode with a raft of online features. You can set up your own tournaments, compete in friendly player matches and size up the competition with player cards that show win/loss records and fighting styles.

With this Full Burst edition players also get the added bonus of an additional chapter, Kabuto becoming playable, 100 new missions, 38 new costumes and revamped cinematics!
