Hidan, Kimimaro, Orochimaru, Anko, Tsuchikage, Masked Man, Susano'o Sasuke, Killer Bee, Deidara... Just to name a few characters that have Jutsus like this: Dodge the first hit and then get hit with the rest unless you use 2 or more Substitutions.
Susano'o Sasuke and Masked Man are the most broken characters in the whole series if you ask me. Sasukes Amaterasu is just a pain, at worst you'll have to use 3 subs just to not get hit by it and fly across the screen. And on top of that, he has a Susano'o even more overpowered than Itachi's. It is true that the huge awakenings are easier to deal with now, but still that doesn't excuse the broken character that is Susano'o Sasuke. As for Masked Man, well, anyone who plays Ranked Matches knows what it means to have a Masked Man against you.
This isn't meant to be a rant, but darn this pisses me off so much. I mean isn't the point of a Substitution Jutsu to get away from the attack rather than jump up and land back into the same attack? Why wouldn't it dodge it like a few feet away from the attacker? I just don't even... Ugh.
Well, if you want to have good and fun matches, it's even harder to find those in this game than it was in Storm 2. Everyone's just turned into big asshats, and that is the problem with every single fighting game ever. There are always some cheap tricks that you can use, but if you choose not to, well, cookie for you
I agree with everything you said, and I was expecting the game to add some cutscenes, not only pressing A to skip some images, I still think that's stupid.
When it comes to escape an Ultimate from behind, I should not have to watch my Substitution Bar ''just in case'' someone wanna act like a noob and get me from behind. Still that's not a big problem I can admit that.
Still, the Madara Tale have all the fights of the Akatsukis but not even 1 fight with him... don't tell me that's not stupid lol, it should hgave been called ''Akatsuki Tale'' or something like that then.
For the computer spammers, It's not a problem yeah....until you get to the last fight of the third Survival Mode and so on... that's why most of the peoples (including me) started to spam that Masked Man ultimate, just to complete it.
Don't get me wrong, I like the game, really, but 70$ for it ? I don't think so, pretty sure everyone will agree with that. it should have been Called Naruto Storm 2 Ultra or something like that, then the price would have been 39.99$, now that would have made sense.
Oh and one more last thing, all the characters they took from Storm 1 are worst than they use to be in Storm 1, for example, my favorite character, which is Young Sasuke, I was expecting to see his 3 forms, not just 1, because for those who have played Storm 1, they know what I mean, Sasuke had 3 form and 3 ultimate. Maybe that was too much asking to Namco Bandai.
At the end, it's definitly not the worst Naruto, but it's definitly not worth 70$ either. Hope that helps you to understand my point of view.
yup i expected this will happen and trust me I was right this were I'm suppose to laugh now lol but like I said before any naruto buy has keep me happy true they took boss fight out but hey we can't all have our way rite ?
I like it so far but some characters are missing jutsus or there is not enough. They should update the game with more jutsus. Young naruto can use demon wind bomb in story mode but not in VS mode... really. I was looking forward to seeing Zabuza with water vortex jutsu. I'm liking the whole combo cancel feature alot. Also there are some transformation missing like jugo full curse mark state. To me it feels as if they were just focusing on putting the characters and didn't care to put more jutsus avaliable to use. The overall is it's a good game. Just missing things. I really do not know how they put updates in DLC but there should be a DLC for Jutsus and what everyone would love is making some of the support characters playable.
Finally a site where I can voice my opinion, I really hope the developers are reading this because I really love the Naruto storm games and dont want it to head in the wrong direction.
Honestly all I cared about was the new characters. I dont really care much for the story but to my surprise I was disappointed that I finished the story in a lil over 4 hours. What really broke my heart about the game is that I finally got to play with one of my favorite characters (the 1st Hokage) but the whole substitution system gameplay messed up everything. Im more used to the substitution system from off storm 1 & 2. I dont understand why they would change it now but the developers should've made that optional whether I'd like to use the new substitution gameplay or not.
I wished they focused on other things with the gameplay like adding more options for the fighting like if you wanted to add more health bars or wanted to use your awakening mode earlier in the fight. I wish the ultimate ninjutsu's were a lil longer, I felt that they were rushed. It would be nice for characters to have more ninjutsu attacks to chose from like in storm 1 and their awakening modes still had their own ultimates jutsu too. I really thought they were gona bring back the fighting on walls gameplay back. I always fantasized myself pressing the chakra charge button once to release my chakra then being able to run up a wall then chakra dash straight to my opponent on the ground and catch him in a combo. =) Aww man I would love that.
It would also be nice if they added some features from the ps2 ultimate ninja games like alternate costumes, that follow up substitution teleport attack you can do on your opponent after you complete a combo, that part where you chakra dash into each other too many times and you go into that rock, paper, scissor like cutscene where you jumping around all over the place in a frenzy and you gotta press the right button to win the final hit, and it would be awesome if they brought over all the characters ulitmate jutsu's from the previous ps2 ultimate ninjas too.
As far as the characters I thought they had a very good selection of new characters but I was really hoping to see characters like Konahamaru, taijutsu Naruto(young and old), sand ninja Baki, Iruka, Hinata's sister, Hinata's dad, Kakashi's dad (white fang), Ino's dad, chojis's dad, shikamaru's dad, Ibiki, and last but not least Kosuke Maruboshi (The eternal genin). I also wanted to see certain characters' awakening forms like young and older butterfly Choji, young and older drunken Lee, Jugo's full curse mark mode, and young Gaara's 1st stage of bijuu transformation. And the only characters I thought need fixing is Zabuza's combo speed, his ultimate justsu and most importantly Tenten. Tenten is both a close combat and long distance fighter so she should have more close combat combos too. And Yamato should be more destructive with awesome combos in his awakening mode like he was in ultimate ninja for ps2.
I'm sorry but the story mode on here really sucked compared to that of ninja storm 2. I heard they made story mode like this because people complained about it being to long and it took to long to get through to be able to unlock characters. I really wish they did not due this due to the cry babys out there. When the next installment of naruto comes out I hope that they switch the story mode back to the way it was like on ninja storm 2. Most people hate it when you go out and purchase a game and the game it short it makes people feel like why spend money on a game that your going to beat in a few hours anyway and in this case the story mode on this game could have been completed with like 10 minutes for each character if you skip through the cut scenes. That is rediculous please for the next installment of naruto DO NOT make story mode like this again ever. As for the gameplay of the game it rocked as usual.
I say "No" to bringing back the Story Mode from Storm 2. If they're trying make a better Story Mode, I say bring back some of the elements from the Ultimate Mode in Ultimate Ninja 5. Though I've only played UN5, Storm, Storm 2 and now Generations, UN5 had hands down the best Story Mode out of the bunch.
In Storm 2 the Story was just bland if you ask me. I actually didn't mind the Story Mode in Generations at all. It would've been nice to have more of the animation in it, but oh well, it worked for me at least.
everything you guys are saying about the story mode....who gives a damn when the gameplay of this crap sucks....the game can be ok at times but overall i think narutimate accel 2 was the best naruto game ever made...the series died after they changed it from that beautiful game....
this game is full of bullshit that will piss you off.....
Honestly I love the game but there are some things that really upset me and they have been around for the last few games now.
1. Awakenings- Probably the biggest problem with the series, because honestly when you have people like Susano'o Sasuke that you can't substitute, block, or dodge against it makes the game a lot less fun. I'll play a match against someone using one of these characters get them down to their red bar while still having full health and be killed by the 3 combos they hit me with. This doesn't always happen when they awaken but it does more times than it doesn't.
2. Assist Characters- This one isn't too much of a problem but for some reason Namco Bandai doesn't want to include a Ranked Singles match option. But honestly I think the game should be played 1v1 like how the series started.
3. Substitutions- Part of me likes that they are trying new things but I believe that the reason they made it 4 subs only is because at heart this is a kids game (did anyone notice there is NO BLOOD in any of the cutscenes, that they remade the Zabuza cut scene where he has his last stand and he's pretty much just pushing people with his forehead) and that kids couldn't time the substitutions so they decided to go with this. I miss the relative skill it took to avoid your opponents attacks and find myself accidentally double subbing a Amaterasu or that Rasengan Super that you also have to sub out of twice.
3. Cheap Characters- Ok, please lets be honest here, All characters are NOT created equal and I mean to the point where this can't be taken seriously as a fighting game because anyone who has fought againt Deidara for the past 2 or 3 games knows what I'm talking about. Yes you can win but you have to put in much more effort than the other guy and this isn't just about Deidara I notice most of the popular characters get this treatment (Sage Mode Naruto, Sasuke, Pain, Kiba) the list isn't too long but I mean really it leads me to believe that absolutely no balancing happens before the game is released. Nowadays these things can be fixed with a patch but I don't see Namco Bandai being the type of game publisher that would offer something like that, which is a shame because I'm sure this series is pretty popular otherwise they wouldn't keep making the games.
That pretty much sums it up for me, I know a lot won't completely agree but this is how I feel. And Namco Bandai next time you're about to release a Naruto game (because a patch will NEVER happen) listen to your testers they might say something like "does Amaterasu really need to go that far?' or "does Naruto really have to have a no interrupt item AND one of the best awakenings in the game?" These little things make a difference!
