There was only one problem with Orochimaru's fight with Hiruzen...and it wasen't only that it was a 3 on one. The other issue was SPACE. I felt that the level of tecnique used in that fight did not so much represent the inmuturity of the manga but more the limited space in which Kishi crammed 4 of the strongest people ever to be in a battle royale. I noticed much after, that Orochimaru ,given the necesary space, and the right opponent could dish out some mayor jutsus. The thing was that in that confined space it was simply a matter of high-powered, but not-so-flashy jutsu- consider also that you have to adjust your abilities to who your fighting.Orochimaru knew alot of his flashier techs were not going to work on the bad-ass old man so he just didin't waste the Chakra. I think that Kabuto will not reach Orochimaru's "true" level of power even if his fight turns out to be more exiting than all of Orochimaru's ever were. We just never got to see an all out 1on 1 no space limitation non-handicapped Orochimaru battle that seem to predominate in Shipudden, but weren't so common in Naruto p1.
