Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 is definetly a good game because of the multiple characters, custimazation, etc. The mode Hero's History could have been much better then what it was. It probably wasn't all that good because they devoted most of the time to Ultimate Contest, great mode by the way. In Ultimate Contest you can explore almost all of Konohagakure and even some of Tanzaku Town(outpost town). The fighting style hasn't changed much from the previous two, except for new areas, new changes to characters in battle(such as curse mark 2) being permanent, one ultimate jutsu per fight and the brand new summoning mode. All-in-all its a good game but Hero's History was definetly a disappointment to me. I say they could improve upon that.
