Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst is a fighting game based on the Naruto anime series.
Long name aside, this Naruto game is fantastic. If you like the anime, you'll find a fantastically animated, loyal-to-the-show product that places you in the shoes of your favorite characters. If you haven't seen the show, you'll still get a solid fighter was a roster of eighty characters and some of the best animation available today. This is a game that looks great and plays great, and that certainly deserves a place among the better fighters available on PC.
With all that praise out of the way, it's important to point out that there are some glaring issues. There are far too many cutscenes in this game, and they are all too long. That's not an issue if you already love Naruto, but they're grating for just about anyone else. The bigger issue is that the game is poorly optimized. The game glitches, the refresh rate is questionable, and at no point will you not be aware of the fact that you are playing a game that was primarily made for consoles.
So, is this game worth a download? If it was better optimized, it'd be hard not to recommend it for everyone. If you don't have a great PC, though, you're going to have major issues with the game. At the moment, it's better to say that this game is a must for fans of the series, and possibly something that other fighting game fans will want to avoid. It's not a bad game, but it would definitely benefit from a few good optimization patches.
