my sister's friend brought over her modded ps2 and let me take a crack at the games. it was all japanese but i got around it. i actually beat all of naruto's single player stories and trial mode for her. i didn't unlock any characters, it seems. it's a fun but tiring game. really fast paced and fun. the gash bell game was okay. more strategic and slower but can be fast with a tough AI. i thought it was okay. it didn't have enough characters but i'm not sure if there are any hidden character other than the last boss who's the evil gash bell. an okay game overall. got tired of it way faster than the naruto game.
