Yes, this game basically recounts the first 75 to 80 episodes of the hit anime television show Naruto. Though it basically just focuses in on Naruto's part in these shows as other character fights are basically ignored or maybe shown during the cut scenes which basically features excerpts from the show which is why I started watching the show. However, the omission of other characters during the story mode and even the fighting mode take this game down a couple of notches from being a truly all around great game. Still, it is very fun to roam the Leaf Village and perform the many quests the villagers offer. The fighting is fun too when using Naruto as it is a very satisfying to nail a shadow clone jutsu during said fights. You have your story mode and fighting mode, however, the fighting mode does not offer all that many characters for you to select from. The story mode is a bit limited too, as you end up fighting just random people not from the show unless you are in fact fighting one of the main battles during that stretch on the show in the game. However, this game is like an introduction into the world of Naruto as it introduces you to many of its colorful characters and you see bits and pieces of the show. Add more characters, more perspective, and a bit more depth to the fighting and you would have the perfect Naruto game.
