  • Summary: Naruto: Clash of Ninja is a 3D fighting game based on the Japanese manga, Naruto. Take control of your favorite Naruto characters, including Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and more as you battle it out to determine who the greatest ninja is. Cel-shaded graphics parallel the style set forth in the cartoon, while special character-specific moves add to the feeling of authenticity. Collapse

  1. The cel-shaded graphics are crisp and fit this title perfectly. [JPN Import]
  2. Straightforward pick up and play battling with insane Jutsu moves and lots of spirit in tow, this one is sure to entertain every time you boot it up.

    With such a rich source for inspiration, the characters are fantastically realised.
  4. The game won't keep you in terms of any kind of longevity, but it's an engaging enough fighter to keep you busy until the next hot GameCube title comes tumbling into stores.
  5. It doesn't add a whole lot to the fighting genre, but it's a rewarding game with a well-tuned fighting system and loads of replay value. [May 2006, p.91]
  6. Naruto: Clash of Ninja has very little to offer as a fighting game, but there's a decent amount of fun to be had for those who appreciate the license.
  7. 40
    What we have here is the most basic and elementary of fighting games. It's nothing to look at, listen to, or play.

    I'm a huge Naruto fan, but this game is absolutely crappy. There a only a few modes, hardly any characters, and almost no unlockables. And because of this not much fun. No matter how much of a Naruto fan do yourself a favor and pass on this game. And if you want a fantastic Naruto game for your Gamecube pick up this games infinitely superior sequel. Expand
