Naruto: Ninja Council 2 (known as Naruto: Saikyō Ninja Daikesshu 2 (NARUTO-ナルト- 最強忍者大結集2 lit. "Naruto: Great Council of the Strongest Ninja 2") in Japan) is an action video game, released for Game Boy Advance and is the second installment in the Ninja Council series. It is based on the popular manga and anime series Naruto by Masashi Kishimoto and is developed by Aspect and Tomy and published by D3 Publisher and Tomy.

Plot

Ninja Council 2 is based on the anime series episodes 22 to 80, however it also features a new mission in which the three ninjas are asked to deliver a scroll. Orochimaru steals the scroll and while attempting to retrieve the scroll the player finds out that Orochimaru requested the scroll in the first place only to watch Sasuke. The game's story is told via "cut-scenes". In these cut-scenes the character who is speaking is shown by a large picture of him on the top of the screen while the dialogue is presented as a text on the bottom of the screen. It also features two multiplayer modes which are played via GBA Link Cable: Versus and Co-Op.

Why it Sucks

  1. Strange difficulty jumping.
  2. Weird learning curve.
  3. Unfair boss enemies.
  4. Abysmal & outdated music.
  5. Incomprehensible storyline.
  6. Dull backgrounds.
  7. Seriously, REALLY BAD sound effects.
  8. Just not really a fun game to play.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Decent gameplay.
  2. Tight controls for an action game on the GBA.
  3. Good character sprites.
  4. Definitely a Naruto game, and it's actually in English.

Reception

The game was met with very mixed reception upon release, as GameRankings gave it a score of 57.36%, while Metacritic gave it 55 out of 100.
