  1. Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 is a fun game that fans of the series will find enjoyable. What I don't like is that there is not a lot of depth to the controls.
  2. In all likelihood, we can see the charm of this game fizzling out in a couple of weeks, but it's damned good fun while it lasts. [JPN Import]

    Beat down fun for the whole family. [Nov. 2006, p.86]

    It's simple to get into, so the kids can get in on the action, but even skilled players will find something to sink their teeth into here. While some will be drawn to the voice acting and the nods to the series, the fighting is fun enough to keep everyone happy.
  5. An improved version of last year's game with four-player fighting capability and more characters. For some, that's reason enough to celebrate.
  6. Nintendo Gamer
    66
    Hardly likely to set the world alight. [Dec 2006, p.44]
  7. While Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 is an improvement over the original in many ways, it is also, at its core, a rehash, continuing where that game let off and making sure to stop at a point that can lead into the third.
  8. Clash of Ninja 2 seems more like an upgraded game than a true sequel, and it ultimately does little to improve upon the original.
  9. 60
    The players to whom that would really be a problem have probably already done something about it, though. To regular humans who don't know about imports and don't care that there might be a better version on another continent, Clash of Ninja 2 is the best Naruto game on the market.

Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 is a fighting styled game that features a whole lot of characters from my favorite TV show, NARUTO!!!!! If you haven't played the first game in the series well your in luck. This game captures the show's arc from the very beginning straight to the Chunin Exams Arc (which was quite ahead of the original show at launched). The fights inside the story as well as the mechanics overall is very good! There might be some frustrating moments here and there but it's worth it for what you are doing. Also, If you don't mind just floating pictures bouncing around, depicting the story for you, you will be just fine. Now on to the multi-player experience.... its really good! There are a lot of characters to choose from and a load of good stages to fight on. The battles become very hectic and fun for maximum replayability. Overall, it's a great game to pick up and have fun for hours! Full Review »
