    Excellent review - as you've highlighted the issue with the quests was a pain but at least it was in the pause menu so you can change it while pausing to go for that oh-so-needed toilet break.

    I'm still playing this (as you can see from my signature) even though I've completed it once because it's really good fun and very addictive. One thing that was a right pain for me was the tree jumping sections of the game. It got too fast for my old eyes to keep up with in some areas and when falling you end up having to scrap with a enemy in order to get back into the trees again.

    Steven's not mentioned this but you can load the game and if you want have a naruto battle against your friends akin to the street fighter battles, but with even better moves and graphics in my opinion. As for the difficulty of this I've tried it against the computer from levels 1 to 3 and 3 is just about my limit at the moment. Anything above 3 i.e 4 or 5 results in a pummelling of epic proportions which Mike Tyson would be extremely proud of dishing out.

    I should have mentioned multiplayer, although I couldn't really comment on how great it is. I've only played one match and got my ass kicked in about 10 seconds.

    I'm definitely going to continue playing this one.

    This is a game that I really want to have a go at - having watched the anime for so long! It'd be interesting if it was produced on the Wii, given how the controller could be used, as well. Here's hoping that the dubious saxophone music is included with the 'sexy' jutsu!

    Love this game apart from a couple of things.

    As Lee said the tree bit's can be tedious, especially towards the end, I remember the last four orange quests required you to goto the same area which required two tree sequences.
    English voices suck, but they're releasing free DLC for this problem
    Fighting system is far too easy to exploit with cheap combos, the majority of people online are either really, really good or they're cheap bastards who use the same combo over and over.
