Anyone else find this game extremely boring??

The story mode I mean.
The fighting is great. Fast paced, exciting and overall loads of fun. The story mode on the other hand? Pft... there's literally nothing else to do but:
1. Run
2. Jump
3. Investigate
4. Shop

Why do developers continue to fool us with the illusion of free roam? This is one of the most linear games I've played. They might as well had made it point and click.
No random battles, no minigames... nothing to spice it up at all.

Anyone feel the same?

I'll admit I wasn't a big fan of its "free roam", with not being able to get to places faster (Sprinting would have been nice.). However, I did enjoy the story mode for the most part. The main battles for me were the best parts of the game and made up for all that "running" back and forth lol I also liked the letters (It was nice being able to decide how to respond to his friends.). I'm guessing you played Naruto: Broken Bond before? I enjoyed the minigames and random battles it offered.

Yes, Broken Bond and even Rise of a Ninja were 10 times better in terms of real free roam. I guess it made more sense back then anyway since Naruto was a kid and racing, playing hide and seek, delivering ramen, etc were probably the things he did/would do in his spare time.

It can get repetitive..

Let me tell ya, this game took forever to grind out all of the collection achievements. It just so happens that really dissecting the free roam aspect of campaign will unlock many achievements. If your'e a true cheevo junkie you'll suck it up and handle business

I really enjoyed the Story mode as a whole. And the linearity made finding all the collectibles without a guide a sinch. But yeah, the free roaming in previous games was far better. I supopse that's the price you pay for an improved battle system.

I got gold in all but snake smash when I first played it. Never traded the game in just in case I wanted to go back to it. (Free roaming is fun too.) I eventually did, and while it took a solid hour I finally managed it. I don't know why I went so far for a game I had no intention to complete, but it really bugged me lol.
