    A pretty solid package, and has no glaring flaws that I could find. But looking back at it, it doesn’t feel all too different from its previous iterations (totally flying the face of the name “revolution”).

    Series fans may want to play it safe and rent Revolution first. For those who do not play UNS, Revolution is safe to skip.

    While the fighting mechanics are as good as ever and you get plenty of content, it lacks the certain swag and atmosphere that the other Ultimate Ninja Storms showed plenty.

    A decent transition game for Bandai Namco's series, with a great character roster and interesting original scenes made by Studio Pierrot. But it still feels like a more of the same, lacking a real Revolution.

    Another year, another dip into familiar waters with a game that isn't the revolution that fans have been waiting for. Believe it.

    The fast-paced combat does make for a good time, do not get me wrong, but unless you're the most hardcore of fighting and NARUTO fans, this is a safe one to pass on.

    Do you like Naruto? Great stuff, go nuts, be happy. If you don’t then buy something, anything, else.

    Is there a character stronger than Madara Uchiha?

    And I’m not talking about Edo Tensei Madara. I’m talking about Rinne Tensei Madara Uchiha
    with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan and with rikidou techniques, his Gunbai, a Perfect Susano’o and control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA implanted in him so he also has mokuton kekkei genkai and yin-yang release ninjutsu. Expand

    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.

    Has a lot of characters,maps, combos and ultimate jutsus, but the game doesn't have an "story mode" and the tournment mode is boring, this game surely could have been more. Expand

    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. 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.
