Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, like its predecessors, looks awesome. The art style's transition to the third dimension was silky smooth to begin with, and there was no need to change the approach. The action is outlandishly over-the-top, particularly in the game's cutscenes. That's a good thing, because Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 features an overabundance of cutscenes. The animation is stellar, the character models are distinctive, and the myriad jutsu attacks are unbelievable in all the right ways. The drawback (and it's a major one) is that the load times are often unbearably long.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 sounds good as long as you're judging it by the standards to which you hold the anime series. Music is appropriate for a series that deals with ninja; it's not the throwaway stuff that everyone normally expects from anime-based fighters. The voice acting isn't as consistent, but neither is it particularly offensive. While it's hammy as hell, it gets the job done efficiently.
