Reviewed: Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles
Producer: Namco Bandai
Required System:  PS2
Overall Rating:
Author: Michael Ahlf
Date: December 12th, 2006


Pretty much anyone with any passing interest in japanese animation has heard of Naruto by now - a long running manga/anime property that's beginning to rival the venerable Dragonball Z in popularity (helped somewhat by DBZ's finally concluding), and has spawned several arena-combat style fighting games on the Gamecube.

The next step, inevitable pretty much, is to try to make an RPG in which players can explore the Naruto world. Uzumaki Chronicles is that next step, taking the world of Naruto and breaking it down into a combat-oriented "missions" RPG; players pick their missions, travel the countryside hunting rogue ninja, and interact (on a limited basis) with the people in Naruto's world. It doesn't have the depth and scope of many RPG titles, and has moments that are obviously designed to try to appeal to a younger crowd, but it is fun enough for fans of the series to pick up and play.
