I like the story mode a lot. There are two of them. The first, the mugenjo, the second, the hidden mugenjo. The first one consists of the main characters of Naruto, except for the unlockable characters, and Jaraiya,Shizune, and Lady Tsuanade. I like the first one the best, because it's challenges are easy, and aren't as hard as the second story. the second one only has 30 floors, not 100. And that;s for good reason.
******** The challenges of the first* story mode are fighting arena,tree climbing, shadow possession room, clone room,riddle room, and amusemeent room( which is slot machine). These chalenges get a little harder as you go on. The cut scenes I like a lot, and are very good. The second floor has all of those, except it doesn't have shadow possession room,and*tree climbing.
