  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.

    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.

    Wherever CON falls short (i.e, characters, story, etc.), it more than makes up for in a simplistic yet well devised control scheme.

    Dont bother playing this one, just get Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen 4 ( IMPORT ) from liksang.com or something, its 100 times better than Dont bother playing this one, just get Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen 4 ( IMPORT ) from liksang.com or something, its 100 times better than this one, more Characters ( like Kabuto, Orochimaru, The Third Okage, Kimimaru, KYUUBI NARUTO and many more ), Japanese Voices ( which are WAY better than the English cast voices, and you know it... ), and the Characters are unlocked via Missions so u dont have to Buy them or anything like that. This one ( Naruto: Clash of Ninja ) Is just an Average Fighting game with crappy Voices, Decent Graphics, and a Small Number of Playable Characters. Expand
