Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 starts off with a pretty grim outlook on things. Female lead character Sakura is on her knees against a backdrop of rubble – what looks to be the remains of a village. She calls out for Naruto just as one of the criminal Akatsuki warriors surveys the damage and plots for a final blow. From there, we get to play through the events that took place that led to this wave of chaos and destruction.

In this interactive retelling of the Naruto Shippuden story arc, we get to play as the feisty ninja - all grown up, after going on something of a wilderness sabbatical with a ninja tutor. It seems that the Akatsuki hasn't yet given up on its mission to extract the mythical beasts that lie dormant within Naruto and fellow cursed teenager Gaara, and it is in fact a kidnapping of the latter that kickstarts the quest to stop the villainous organisation at all costs.

Fusing the frantic action of a one-on-one fighting game with the exploration and backstory of an adventure title, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 keeps the gameplay fresh and offers a lot of depth to the tried and tested beat'em up genre. Use the help of companions found in the story to assist you in battles, create new items that can be used in the arena and learn new techniques that can cause some explosive damage.
