    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]

There is so little to do hrer, but it's still a Naruto game! If you're a big fan of the Naruto franchise, then you will not be disappointed. Expand

    В Revolution есть несколько сюжетных частей, которые дополняют аниме, но сюжетной части НЕТ
    Роликов на движке - нет, только аниме вставки.
    Эта часть ТОЛЬКО для боёв между игроками, доделали механику, добавили брейкеры из MK . Играбельно.
    Иногда лагает, поэтому ищете игры сами и играйте с теми у кого хороший пинг,
    если рассматривать только онлайн, то 8 поставить можно, для любителей Наруто и аниме,
    эта игра для расслабления, тут нет сложной механики SoulCalibur или MK,
    мешим, но в меру :)

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

    This game is NOT what you are expecting from a Naruto game, there is no real story mode aside from Mecha-Naruto, this is not a well madeThis game is NOT what you are expecting from a Naruto game, there is no real story mode aside from Mecha-Naruto, this is not a well made storyline either by any means it makes very little sense and is almost certainly made by the devs and not professional story writers.

    There ARE Naruto Escapades which give you 3 VERY short stories 1 of which you don't even participate in a single battle and the other 2 are 2-3 battles long, interesting stories to give a more personal account of rarely examined plot lines in the series such as Shisui Uchiha and Itachi.

    The game has a freemode that I highly expect you will spend the majority of your time after you unlock most of the characters through the very poorly designed 'Ninja World Tournament' mode, assuming you don't like unfair bordering on BROKEN fight mechanics you will not like this game mode after around rank B or A depending on whether you just care to win or win overwhelmingly.

    It is sad because if you don't care to finish with a decent rank you will almost certainly want to basically only maintain your 'orbs' until the final battle because if you actually attempt to collect any significant amount the characters will not simply give you priority they will attack you zealously completely ignoring the other characters, adding in the fact you now have a very limited capacity of which to escape 3 characters rushing you is not impossible to overcome by any means but it is very VERY frustrating. In the final rank (S obviously) the field is filled with such an overwhelming amount of obstacles such as Samurai, demon brothers, summons, traps, and the **** LAVA SURGES WHICH HAVE 0 WARNING.

    You are in a complete and total essence fighting an uphill battle and not in a fun way. You WILL find yourself restarting battles dozens of times assuming you want a decent rank, the final battle getting rank S legitimately takes either a huge amount of skill that even I as a person who has played games at a professional level before simply do not have, OR you will have to essentially fix the characters you fight, generally the best tactic is using a character like Kimmimaro in the first round since the other characters won't actually be locking you down yet, the middle 2 are completely arbitrary but generally Sasuke or Fox Naruto are good choices due to sasuke's Amaterasu or Naruto's amazing mid-range melee and powerful single target jutsu and then use Hinata or/and Neji in the final (sometimes final 2 if you are good enough to get the others sub 100 in both first rounds) for their amazing defensive jutsu and since the others are focusing you they will in essence be throwing themselves into your sphere over and over again, of course you are susceptible to interruptions and may have to restart based on RNG but generally this works well. Not only is this not fun but it makes the final battle an absolute **** when you have kimmimaro and neji both using their jutsu over and over again they can take you down to 0 in 10 seconds and they WILL focus you in the final battle just as zealously as the final round in the tournaments before.

    Basically it is fun in the 1v1 situations and has a HUGE selection of characters, the equipment is way too expensive but Free Battle gives you equipment based on your choice so it doesn't matter much, but if you want all the best things in the game prepare to hate the game, 1 v 1 v 1 v 1 battles SOUND like a good idea in theory but in practice I can PROMISE you, they are NOT fun.

    I would only recommend this game to people who simply can not go another day without a Naruto game, wait and pray that they get their head out of their asses and start giving us story modes again, also the free world roam is infinitely worse than even their early Naruto Ultimate Ninja games, their free roam game is at an all time low what the **** is going on Bandai can't you churn out decent games anymore?

    Accept it if its a gift otherwise don't even spend a nickle on this ****

The game mechanics are *very* boring (you'll spend 80% of the time looking at the cinematics of the special attacks) and the other 20% either jumping around or comboing + disappearing + reappearing behind. The game modes are also boring, except the tiny story mode which is well done and with a well executed story. There isn't a proper story mode. There isn't even an arcade mode. The world tournament mode is awful. It is a pity the effort that was wasted into this game. I give him 4 instead of 1 or 2 because the technical aspects are good, and the cut scenes are wonderful. Don't buy this game until it costs 10$ or less. Expand
