Games Review: Naruto Shippuden: Legends –Akatsuki Rising

PSP, £24.99

Featuring the option to control ten different ninjas, many in the wide-eyed and spiky-haired mold beloved of anime fans the world over, this spin-off from the Naruto: Shippuden cartoon is a diverting accompaniment to the series onwhich it’s based. With an intuitive control system, clean graphics and some dazzling special moves, the gameplay is interspersed with some impressive cut-scenes, though the roving ninja action can be slow and repetitive at times.
