Sep 29, 2014A 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.

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

There are countless hours spent on fighting each other and figuring the best combinations for support characters. With all the available characters there are endless possibilities, and CC2 clearly understands what needs to be invested to make a successful fighting game. I'm exceedingly excited for what will come next.… Expand

Its fun to watch your favorite character pull off their signature jutsu or play as one of the jinchuriki and turn into their tailed beast. The new anime footage the game boast about having looks fantastic, but the actual content is disappointing. The Creation of the Akatsuki is the reason I bought the game and I'm sad to say it feels like they didn't put much thought into it, especially since the series has always had such fantastic charcter development. The Mecha Naruto story is somewhat interesting, but the parts that you play are boring. My biggest problem is the fact that the game brags about having over 100 playable characters when it has several versions of the same character. They have Naruto, Naruto in Sage Mode, Naruto in Nine-Tails form,and Pt. 1 Naruto. They did the same thing with Sasuke, Gaara, Kabuto, and many others. Personally even though there are slight differences, I don't think its fair to say there are 100 playable characters when you do that. Overall I think its a fun game if you're really into Naruto but I would wait for the price to drop before buying it.… Expand
Sep 16, 2014Intro:
I wasn't hyped for this game, I wasn't following all the news about this game, BUT I knew about new characters, battle types and thatIntro:
I wasn't hyped for this game, I wasn't following all the news about this game, BUT I knew about new characters, battle types and that this game has anime content created by Kishimoto. I bought day1 edition, because I'm a fan of numbered(1,2,3) storm games. I wasn't hyped because I had a feeling that "revolution" might turn out to be like "generations", and I was right. This review is my personal oppinion, nothing I will say is a fact , so take it lightly.
1. Character Roster
Roster gets expanded with every new game in the series "Revolution" is not exception. I'm not gonna lie, I like this roster it's great, developers improved on the amount of the characters and slot usage. But there's still things that I dislike.
Like Itachi still taking 2 slots - normal Itachi and edo-Itachi is the same character but with different justsu and ultimate, with everything esle from moveset to awakening and animations being the same.
Support only characters, CC2 doesn't listen to their fans, sound 4 was requested since storm 1 and CC2 are trolling by putting them as support only characters!
And they skipped 7 swordsmen, Kinkaku and Ginkaku AGAIN because Iruka and Konohomaru are more important.
As always CC2 replicates anime perfectly, "Revolution" doesn't give it many chances to shine, but I understand that this game has no storymode with qte to show our favorite moments form the anime/manga. On the other hand new awakenings are giving us some anime/manga moments of awesomeness like 10tails, Perfect Susanoo and Thousand Hands Buddha.
Sunny Side Battle - 10-11 minute poor quality video of Itachi Cooking breakfast for Sasuke. It may sound like something bad, but it's really not. I had some geat laughs after every minute of that video.
The Two Uchihas - Great story, too bad it was so short.
Creation Of Akatsuki - Cool and stuff but nothing really interesting, there was no reason for some members to join. The only good ones were how Orochimaru asked to join and how Hidan was wondering if Kakuzu is immoratl too. Almost every Akastuki member got a story and a costume except Kisame, he wasn't even shown till the end of the story where every member is already in his place.
The Far Reaches Of Hope - I don't even understand why is it here. Completely unnecessary.
Story of Mecha-Naruto - can't say anything good or bad about it, but every fan must play through it.
Ninja World Tournament - Cool new feature, fun, balanced(kinda), but very limited.
Online Ghosts - are pointless.
Customization - Sounds good but in reality it's not cool at all. Everyone uses the same items, it's not even funny.
4.Battle System and Online
New battle types are garbage - they limit you in every aspect and cause disbalance.
Less combos, less jutsus(I know it was for the sake of the balance, but changing speed and damage of the jutsu could have helped, balance=/=removing jutsus), DANZO(those who played online will understand), counters and stuns make everything even worse.
In previous games you had to have a skill to cancel combo into ultimate, now it's a childs play, you don't have to do anything the game will do it for you. While holding block don't touch the left stick or else... well you're dead.
WORST BATTLE SYSTEM IN THE WHOLE SERIES.
If I had to give this game a score it would be this: 5,5/10 "Revolution" is not better than "Generations"+ worst battle system, but more content! DEFINITELY A DOWNGRADE!!
I wouldn't recomend buying this game for the full price that it has, this game is worth 30 bucks not more. Cause you don't need online with all the flaws this game has, you don't need a limited battle system that this game has. BUT you need the content that it provides, cause you can unlock almost every DLC costumes that storm 3 had(sage Kabuto included)+ new akatsuki costumes, new characters and hours of anime materials that you will enjoy, so if you haven't bought DLC costumes for storm 3 - here you can get them for free, if you paid for storm 3's DLC costumes - here you don't have to pay again.… Expand
Jun 27, 2015I'll keep it short because the problem with this game are few but glaring. This game is incredibly imbalanced. Every single match onlineI'll keep it short because the problem with this game are few but glaring. This game is incredibly imbalanced. Every single match online resorts to spam and cheap tactics, the average player has an extremely poor connection which you get punished for. Some characters like SMN, Madara, Sasuke, and others are faster, equipped with better range, and have OP awakenings and instant awakenings that let you spam down your opponent from afar or instantly win a chakra dash. The story is okay but the dialogue is rather poor. From a story-based perspective it's fine but short, from a competitive fighter perspective it's probably the worst major fighting series in the last decade due to the rampant imbalance.… Expand

Do not buy this game, expect it to come out next.… Expand
