"Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4" reviews have finally made their way online, and most say that the game will impress players with its stellar gameplay, graphics, and sounds.
Gamers have yet to see if "Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4" will be better than its predecessor, but they will be impressed with its action and gameplay. They will be able to play from the viewpoint of Naruto, Kakashi, Obito, and other characters, according to Hardcore Gamer.
Its biggest strength reportedly lies in the story mode, which gives Naruto fans the chance to relive the greatest moments in the manga and anime, and allow them to connect to the current events. However, players will not be able to explore villages and go on side quests in the story mode, Gaming Union reports.
The exploration and side quests can be done in the Adventure Mode, which comes after the story mode. Here, players can also gather collectible items and participate in tournaments.
Aside from that, players can battle it out in the Game Mode, and choose between the traditional and the practice modes. They can also try their luck in the Knock-Out Tournament Mode, League Mode, and Survival Mode.
The online mode is pretty much the same as the game mode, except that players have to join a game session. However, there are reports about connection issues and lags that render a game almost unplayable.
As for the graphics, the publication says there is a great improvement in that area. Players might feel that they can really touch the character on screen. In the past, they will retain mere scratches once they are hit, but now large chunks of clothing will be slashed off if they take a particularly big blow, the report details.
When it comes to music, fans will find it energizing from beginning to end. The metal/punk soundtrack matches well with the scenes. Still, there are some fans who think that the music could have been better.
As a whole, "Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4" has delivered what fans have been looking for in the previous series. Gaming Union says it is by far one of the best Naruto game titles.
