Hi everyone. I just picked up Naruto Shippuden Ultimate NInja Storm Generations (long title) last night, and as a big Naruto fan, I was hoping this was going to be an in depth game. While it's very basic in terms of depth, there still is a very decent fighting game here.
There is one attack button, a block button, substitution (dodge, you stick a log in place of yourself as you're being pummeled), jump, 2 partner assist buttons similar to MvC if you are doing a 3 man team match ( there is also just 1v1, love they have the variety), a projectile throw button, and a chakra button which charges meter and turns all your other buttons into super esque versions of their usage, as well as gain life and perform essentially super / ultras. There are dash cancels, combo cancels and more that i'm still trying to grasp. For a very simple command layout, this game really has a lot to offer. And I must say, the graphics are nothing short of amazing.
I've been searching the internet to find a site with in depth strategy to really learn the game, and had no luck. Does anyone here play it? I had assumed correctly there wouldn't be a forum or thread here on SRK for it, but no reason that can't change. I really would like to learn the game more in depth and see what other dedicated fighting game players think and can contribute to it. I've only been playing the story mode of the game, which unlocks characters, and still trying to really get a feel on how to execute commands properly. I'm only a beginner when it comes to play SSFAE, so my knowledge and execution in fighting games is very weak. I'm sure someone who really knows their stuff would be able to pick this game up and figure out some crazy things. Hope to hear back from some people, would love to get this game some recognition and see people discussing strategy. Thanks!
