    Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution isn’t the revolution it could have been, and even though it took some logical steps in the right direction to improve the one-vs.-one fights with new mechanics, the story, missing cinematic action and the new battle system feel like Revolution has taken the series one step forward, but two steps back.

    Except for the huge selection of characters, there's no real reason to pay full price if you already own the predecessor.

    Fun enough in its own right, but lacking in a number of ways when compared to its predecessor. There isn't much in the way of new stuff for Naruto fans to squee over, and as this is a game based around making Naruto fans go "squee", that's a bit of an issue.

    You can just watch the cut-scenes and attack animations on YouTube and save yourself time and boredom, because the combat system is poor compared to other Gundam style games. [13/2014, p.65]

    It now has more modes to play with people online, more characters and many more. There is so much to do than full burst. I love them bothIt now has more modes to play with people online, more characters and many more. There is so much to do than full burst. I love them both equally. I really enjoyed the World Tournament thing they added to the game. It keeps me well entertained. :)

    The price is reasonable if you got it pre-purchased for $44.99. It also comes with few extra add ons to when pre purchased. I just love this game a lot.

    I hook up my PC to my TV for a much better experience.

    If you're a big fan of the Naruto franchise, like me. Then you will not be disappointed.
    The game features over 100 playable ninja that we all know and love mixed with fluid, fast paced and smooth brawling gameplay. This time around you'll get to choose between 3 types before fighting. "Ultimate jutsu", "Awakening" and "Drive" and unlike Storm 3 which gave you all of these at the same time which makes the fighting more unique in a sense, you have to make the fun and right decision (Won't go into detail on how each one of these types works tho). Combos display characters traits and style in a very accurate fashion which is pretty cool and Ultimate Jutsus and Team Ultimate Jutsus are truly awesome to behold, for example: Itachi x Shisui, Obito x Madara, Ino Shika Cho etc. This game features no cannon story mode to explain the events of the anime and manga but it has a single player World Tournament mode to find out who's the greatest ninja of them all which can upset some players who wishes to follow the main story of the show. If you have some favorite character from the franchise and wish to challenge someone over the internet then you can overlook this "incident" (personally I like the World Tournament mode) but don't forget that the game also gives you the chance to play the origin story of the Akatsuki, the two Uchiha and team Minato's story which are filled with exclusive and well made animated cutscenes. Exciting stuff indeed, The game might have some issues with low end computers and online gameplay might lag for some people but I myself haven't had any trouble related to crashes or lag so in my honest opinion the game is very enjoyable and fun online and offline, amusing to play with friends. Also; Customization has been added to give your favorite characters some well deserved accessories, like adding an Anbu black ops mask to Iruka. (Fun to play around with!)
    Remember now, this is just my opinion on the matter so no hard feelings, cheers!
    To sum it up: Smooth and enjoyable gameplay that on higher levels is like chess (you have to be one step ahead of your opponent), lots of characters to choose from, awesome Ultimate Jutsu's and combos, enjoyable with friends online and offline if there isn't popping up a transmission message every second that is, a game for the Naruto lover.

    It really does not improve upon it's succesors apart from the adition of some new characters. The story mode was removed completely, and theIt really does not improve upon it's succesors apart from the adition of some new characters. The story mode was removed completely, and the new adition of the "Ninja World Tournament" is a dissapointment: no final techniques, no awakening mode, and no multiplayer. I really do not recommend the game unless you don't have the previous titles, or unless any of the new characters is your favorite. Expand

    Happy to see naruto on pc, but if you played 1 you've playef them all. Story mode is good from where they show missing parts of the anime,Happy to see naruto on pc, but if you played 1 you've playef them all. Story mode is good from where they show missing parts of the anime, huge island tournamant mode sucks and is just a waste of time(do yourself a favor and just unlock everyone by just playing the game in battles). Game feels and plays the same as the last 6 releases. I hope they come out with something new and fresh for the next gen releases cause their flagship naruto game is really starting to feel like its starting to wearout its welcome. Expand
