    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]

    Reviewing a game is always personal, so I can only speak for myself - but Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is (to me) near aReviewing a game is always personal, so I can only speak for myself - but Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is (to me) near a perfect game! 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 basically another Generations but with a shorter story and alot of new gameplay & characters added in.

    Story - Really short but still great. You get to see how the Akatsuki was formed and Itachi's & Shisui's Past. You also get to see a little bit of Obito Kakashi Rin Minato & Kushina scenes not shown in the Anime.

    Soundtrack - For games like this music isn't really important in my opinion but the soundtrack is pretty good actually.

    Graphics - Its very very very good.

    Gameplay - You get new Tag Team Attacks but only if you have certain support characters such as Itachi and Shisui Naruto Sakura and Sasuke and etc. There's also this new Tournament thing where you have to collect orbs from your opponents in order to win. Alot of new characters appear including Hashirama Sage Mode Tobi without Mask Kushina Shisui Iruka Konohamaru and alot more. Let me express my disappointment in the character rooster Why aren't the **** 7 Ninja Swordsman in this game?

    Replay Value - Fighting Games usually have a low replay value because once you beat them its over. Replay Value comes from playing with a friend or playing Online or doing the side things like Survival and the Tournaments. So this game has a moderately low replay value. That is why I usually don't buy fighting games often replay value is important cause your spending
    $50 to $60 on a game that will entertain you for that moment only but what about later? Although I play the Naruto Games for Online Battling its like a sport to me but others might not feel the same.

    Overall - I call this game a waste of money and time especially since we know Storm 4 will be coming out soon which will have everything we wanted to have in this game. Its not a complete waste of time though you get a glimpse of what to expect from Storm 4 in terms of new gameplay mechanics some new characters and new Anime Scenes not present in the Anime but even so its just frosting on the cake. The Frosting is delicious but the cake is not the same without the bread that comes with it. I would buy this just to play Online and nothing more. short yet exciting experiences aren't worth my $50 maybe $40 or $30 but $50 man get the **** out of here. Someone in the future might be able to buy this for $30 or less and he or she will be happy I however am not so see you later.

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

    This has become too casual. There is no depth in mechanism and pressing one button basically does everything. In the previous 2 games of thisThis has become too casual. There is no depth in mechanism and pressing one button basically does everything. In the previous 2 games of this series , there was bit of depth in fighting mechanism as players were able to form their own combos by adding grab or tilts to combos. There isnt a good balance between aggressive and defensive players. Defensive players have far more tactics to use than aggressive. Especially the counter attack or parry is totally abusive and broken mechanism which also favors the defensive players. Expand
