    Another one? The RPG game seems decent, at least.

    After playing the JPN release, Shinobi Retsudan, I can honestly say it feels like a portable version of the GNT series. Most notably, GNT2 or 3. It is actually a really good fighter and I heard the US version has improved framerates over the JPN release. On top of the fact that they included the three Sannin, one of which is my favorite character, Orochimaru!!!

    This one has CS2 Sasuke and has voice acting in it. Otherwise, its the same as the European one.

    I absolutely hated Naruto, and it'll be likely that I won't play this game, seeing that it got a 65 from Metacritic...

    I played the Euro release and thought the fighting was way too shallow. But this game proves to me that if Namco got off their lazy asses, they could create a pretty decent version of Tekken for the DS.

    And while I'm at it, Capcom are lazy bastards too for not making a Street Fighter for DS.

    And SNK for a lack of a King of Fighters game.

    I want a GOOD, proven fighting game to play on the DS. Don't tell me about Mortal Kombat....never did care for that game. If they can make halfway decent fighters for the GBA, then they could make a really good one on the DS.

    To be honest, I agree. The three of their best reviews left/or got fired. (Alex, NOOOOOOO). I don't like their new reviewers. I should've just said metacritic and that's it. Might as well edit it now...

    Why the hell would you focus your opinion based on Gamespot? No scratch that, why would you focus your opinion based on any game review site?

    Because some sites I can actually see how it is. The reason why I do so, is because when a user reviews it, there might be something that can give it a high score, or a low score. Like, when I played a Naruto game with a friend of mine whose obsessed with it, played a Naruto game, he'd said it rocks. But when I played it, it really sucked. It was shallow, and pure button mashing, and you still would've gotten all of the combos right. Some, might ignore some games because they hate the franchise or just simply hate the company that made it. Like when the Bleach game out, I didn't want to play it, until everyone agreed it was good. Users and Reviewers. Afterwards, I actually liked it.

    I'm not saying there's bad user reviews out there, but professional reviewers can do a better job.

    Remember guys, this isn't a thread to discuss Game Review sites, keep it on subject.

    Well, I still find this a decent game. Of course, it lacks depth, but then again, so do all the Naruto fighting games.
    Also I just found out there's a sequel to this game focusing on Shippuden.

    Their shared forums with GameFAQ's are even worse than the reviews.

    I like it.

    The fighting seems shallow at first, but there's some counters that can be triggered if timed right. One of the best fighters on DS so far.
