    With more than 100 playable characters to choose from and an enhanced fighting system, the new Naruto game is more addictive and diverse than ever. An absolute must have for every Naruto fan.

    CyberConnect2 improves over a trusted formula that still manages to attract Naruto fans. Great production values, a big number of fighters and excellent story mode. However, the Japanese studio at some point will have to find the way to add more innovations.

    A slew of engaging gameplay modes and a huge character roster ensure that you'll be kept busy, but once again, it's the brilliant and intense spectacle of all-out ninja warfare that'll keep you utterly glued to your controller.

    Well worth a look if you’re a fan of Naruto or alternative takes on the classic beat-em-up formula, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution offers up a refreshingly unique, albeit flawed, gaming experience.

    A minority of fans certainly will keep religiously this new game and has every right to do so, but all of those who care about the future of Naruto in home consoles should be worried about the apparent lack of ideas and profound innovations in the series.

    While it's not likely to satisfy anyone looking for deep fighting action, existing fans will be pleased with what's on offer. [Issue#152, p.123]

I am a huge fan of the Naruto series, and the game provides with tons of fan service! I can't get enough of it! If the game had a proper story mode that followed the story - then it would have been perfect. But the story about Mecha Naruto is actually really interesting! Many of the old characters have been updated in the form of awakening actions etc. - I know that not everyone has recieved the update they deserved, but this game has a lot to offer, and I can only recommend it. 10/10! Believe it! Expand

    This is MY sincere review of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution. Remember now, this is my opinion of the game.
    "No story mode!?" The game is primary a fighting game so keep that in mind, if you're looking for the story then read the manga or watch the anime since you won't find any lengthy continuation from the Storm 3 story here but don't forget that the game 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. The content is short but sweet nevertheless.
    The Ninja World Tournament is the official "offline mode" which is pretty good mindless action, some moments are filled with frustration so I'd rather not spend 2+ hours in a row on it. ^^ I like it despite the boring chores.
    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 that we all know and love to choose from, awesome Ultimate Jutsu's and combos that displays the traits and style of each character in a very accurate fashion though some movesets can be a bit goofy.
    Customization has been added to give your favorite characters some well deserved accessories, like adding an Anbu black ops mask to Iruka. (Have spent some hours with this hehe)
    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, in my honest opinion the game is very fun online and offline,
    If you're a big fan of the Naruto franchise, like me. Then you will not be disappointed.

I really somewhatt the battle system and a few flaws here and there. Its just a tad getting used to from Storm 3. Dont get excited for new jutsus, ultimate scene and all that good stuff. A few characters got a little faster while some got slowed down which is good. I still have a grudge that the ps2 Naruto games were better in a way that each character had 3 jutsus, BRING THAT BACK! Bring Sound 4, 7 Swordsmen, etc. We need more variety! Also what i hate is the fact that i no longer can use ultimate jutsu with awakening like Storm 3. That kills it. but other then that its a good game. i would give it a 5/10. It was just a hyped up game. Expand

    after playing Naruto shippuden UNS 3 full burst and enjoying how CC2 delivered the story with the familiar combat system and all I hoped thisafter playing Naruto shippuden UNS 3 full burst and enjoying how CC2 delivered the story with the familiar combat system and all I hoped this game will surpass that yet, this game could've been a fine DLC but it shows how greedy the owners of this franchise are.

    let's start with the basic thing there's no story mode!
    the game "main mode" is a world tournament , you'll fight against 3 enemies at once while the basic combat system remained the same you cannot execute ougies(ultimates) nor use the awakening mode while gathering orbs from the enemies, you'll have a rail and npc that interrupts you but if the enemies all gank you together it's simply annoying, even though i beaten them all I felt no difficulty even when i reached the S rank tournament, while the animation itself could be good it didn't ran smoothly.
    cinematics in the entire world tournament thing were the same
    to unlock team mates you had to preform idiotic quests like fight guy,neji and etc then run there, fight blahblah blah and run there, bring this bring that, you can have your girlfriend/wife to send you for the same quests and no i'm not joking and all of that so you can occasionally use that team member to do something cause ofc to preform ougis you need to chase the red orb....

    worst thing is the mode "Ninja escapades" which is an extremely short story sequences that sometimes contradicts the manga itself (eg. itachi recruited before kisame) but that's not the real problem it has 0 story value specially cause in ngs3 you felt part of the story here it's like now fight this, now fight that "oh you're stronger i'll join you" except orochimaru's motivation and even his were a joke...
    the two uchiha chapter was interesting but too short and again had the same problem you didn't felt part of the story,I'd take few quick time events anytime instead of showing us some "real" animation, I buy movies to watch and games to PLAY, and if there's a cinematic I expect it to be good and the majority of cinematics in this mode doesn't give a thing to the game. those two modes could've been easily a nice dlc including roster and all 15euro for this DLC could've been ok for the average naruto fan but 30-40 euro for this game is a hoax.

    good:
    huge roster, graphic is true to the anime/manga, the animations are done well, the combat system would've been awesome it wasn't so repetitive in the tournament mode., if teamed with certain characters you may get a new ougi (sasuke and itachi) but on some pairs you don't (itachi and kisame?!?!)

    bad:
    animation can be stuck sometimes, world tournament story is retarded, ninja escapades offer barely any gameplay or holds any water, no ougi variety (NH2 and NH3 had tons of variety), no jutsu variety, could've been a dlc but costs like a new game, no new story, repetitive, can be finished in less than 6 hrs of gameplay, retarded quests in between the world tournament mode.

    there are more 100 playable characters, ok, but, more than half of the half of them don't have new, that is, the characters are recycled. Theythere are more 100 playable characters, ok, but, more than half of the half of them don't have new, that is, the characters are recycled. They could have waited until the series was over, even wait for the new movie to come out and be developing the game, but them preferred the money.
    Do not buy this game, expect it to come out next.
