This game should really be named Naruto Storm Full Burst Revolution 3.75. since there is no major continuation to the story line it is a typical filler from the creators of Naruto. Also there is just too much Chakra in this game with all these chars being brought back to life, it causes my game to crash frequently. I also verified game cache multiple times still the game crashes.

So after 14.4 hours invested into the game and unlocking every character
Here is my analysis.

Pro's
- Ninja Escapades was well made and no pointless running from place to place. ( This was the main story for me not the Mecha-Naruto garbage.)

- Improved UI

-Class types
-Ultimate jutus allows use of your ultimate jutsu (which varies depending which support chars you chose)

-Awakening allows for true awakening, Magnekyou kakashi, Sage Mode Jiraiya, Kyuubi Mode Minato, Control over the 9 tails with Naruto, control the 10 tails with Obito, Susanoo's for those with Sharingan and much more.

-Drive mode Allows chars to seal 2 substitution jutsu gauge slots and their opponents Ultimate jutsu in battle. Also starts you off with full support drive ready to be activated from the start of the fight.

-Battle arena 1v1v1v1

-Chakra Rails in free for all are a nice touch. They allow you to ride around the arena using jutsu or shoot you into the air to come crashing down on opponents (each move varying per char)

- The timeline is well into Naruto and everyone is super powerful.

- The jutsu's are well created and aesthetically pleasing.

-Cons
- The main story line is based around Mecha-Naruto

- They Removed the forward combo from all chars leaving them with only 3 combos a tilt and a throw.

-Game crashes (some of them carry over from Full burst)
-Shisui Regular B combo finisher = game crash
-Hashirama (First Hokage) Normal punch = game crash
-Minato (Fourth Hokage) true awakening = game crash
-Shikamaru Ultimate Jutsu = game crash (which is actually a problem that I also had with Naruto Storm Full Burst 3.5)
I will post more as I find them.

- Annoying obstacle chars ruin the immersion of a free for all ninja battle.

- Free for all ninja battle in the story mode sometimes feels like a 1v3

- lack of player control for 1v1v1v1's,
(What needs to be implemented)
1) Allow players to set up free for alls and control options in free battle tab.
A) Allow 2v2's and 1v2's or even 1v3's.
B) Implement player free for alls
C) Allow toggle for obstacle chars/rails/traps/barrier for the arena

- Needs more combos for True awakening chars (Kurama only has 1 combo and ten tails only has an arm smash and arm sweep.)

- No Juubito

11/10 because I love the characters of Naruto and being able to fight with them (especially with the new Team Ultimate Jutsu system) does make it worth it for me.

But

6/10 as a fighting game. Maybe.


Someone came to me to ask about the controller mechanics. Having a controller absolutely does make this game easier to play, but is not necessary. I adapted to Naruto storm full burst pretty easily without the controller and only use the controller because my girlfriend bought one to use when she plays. But in my honest opinion Controller > Keyboard for this game.

After playing 5 hours through the game i realised something: There is no actual anime story. And i wouldn't want it any different.

To some this might seem to be an unwise decision. However, I bet that the developers thought of the same thing i did before the game's release: if they put the story that spans from Storm 3's ending to the present animated episode (and more precise, The Ten-Tails Jinchuriki) then for the next game (Storm 4 maybe?) there wouldn't be any plot left (and i have taken into consideration the manga). Moreover, it's not the first time a Naruto game has it's own story that is not connected to the anime. It's just like a filler that is present in the anime, but not in the manga, only we are talking about a game.

With that being said, it's time to dwelve into the said game. An improvement is sure to be noticed from the previous game. While it runs the same engine (and you might observe that the whole menu works the same), the game's graphics look stunning as always.

The main story is more quest-oriented, with open-world exploration and that is exactly what we needed: a relaxing game that is simply the bridge between Storm 3 and the next Storm game. And when i say relaxing i mean that there is no actual plot development, as the battles are even more intense than ever. You have to participate in a tournament, that gets more and more difficult with every rank you pass. Outside of the tournament, you can make quests to get people in your team, play through arena challenges or do jobs. What more do you want than offering a flower to Lord Orochimaru just so he can join your team in the tournament?

Outside the tournament you can play the Mecha-Naruto story (something teased in the last episode of Naruto Shippuden) or the Ninja Escapades. Those are never-before-told stories, that are long like an episode of the anime and let you do the battles.

The battle mechanics have also changed and take more of a strategic theme. You can now choose between Ultimate Jutsu, Awakening and Support Type. When you fill a special bar you can do something different depending on the Type you chose. Ultimate Jutsu does a stronger Ultimate jutsu that take double damage than normal. Awakening disables the Ultimate Jutsu but let's you use Awakening Mode. Finally, Support makes use of your teammates and you can do a Sealing Jutsu that temporarily disables Chakra, Substitution etc. Depending on what you enemy uses, you can think tactically and choose what Type best suits the battle. I normally have doubt between Ultimate and Awakening since those 2 are pretty epic and i miss being able to use both.

On the downside, the game has a problem for attempting full 3D exploration(remember those camera angles in Storm 3? they're gone) and that is rendering distance. NPCs spawn a little late and you can be right near them and not see them.

All in all, the game is surely a lot multiplayer-oriented, having the biggest character roster. Also, during the tournament you can see something Dark Souls-like. People can "ïnvade" your world through Network Clones. You can fight them or leave them there as they do not move. You can even send your own clone and have it level up. I haven't tried the network mode yet so i don't know if the connectivity problems are solved (though i didn't encounter any in Storm 3 Multiplayer, i am aware they existed), but as far as i've read, this mode works better.

In conclusion, if you are a hard fan of Naruto, this is a game for you(though i would make it cheaper if i were Namco). The lack of anime plot is not a disadvantage, rather a marketing tactic, and one with which i am content as i won't cry over the lack of longer story in the sequel.

One last thing would be a big question mark, as i have played only 5 hours and have not finished even B-rank in tournament mode: if the game lacks anime plot, what is with the Ten-Tails picture on the Store Page? It might be something you unlock or possibly an Awakening (haven't tried Obito yet to see if it's true), or even a false advertising. However, this is something i will find out in the future. For now, all i can say is that this game is a must for Naruto fans.

MUST TRY: Use Danzo Awakening Type and get him into True Awakening mode. Then you can do Sealing Tetragram Jutsu and if you hit the oponent well...i won't spoil the fun :)

Do you want a good feel train with many hours of great Naruto story gameplay like on Fullburst?
You won't be getting it.

The "attraction" to this game is the Ninja Tournament game mode.
You choose a character and enter a free-for-all tournament, in which you whack your opponents around like a bunch of badly disciplined cod kids.
The tournaments consist of multiple stages and difficulties, ranging from D all the way up to S+.
The goal is to go berserk on your enemies, which deposits their points on the battlefield in forms of glowing balls. The objective is to collect as many "balls" as possible while going ape♥♥♥♥ on Sakura. The first difficulties are one sided slaughters in which you decimate your opponents like new born babies with a 10000-0-0-0 score and tell yourself "bg, 2 ez, l2p noobs" after the match.

The story, which is the true gem of the Naruto games, is pretty non-existent.
There's only approximately 1 hour of story gameplay.
The story mode is entitled "The Ninja Escapades" which consist of 3 different chapters.
The Creation of Akatsuki, which tells us how they gathered their members etc.
The Fall of the Uchiha Clan, which tells us how Shisui and Itachi tried to stop the coup d'état.
The Far Reaches of Hope, which is a movie of Team Minato featuring Kushina.
The Ninja Escapades give an amazing animelike experience, which you can just watch on youtube if you're only in for the story.
As I bought the game I didn't really know what to expect, the anime isn't that far from where Fullburst left us so there couldn't possibly be +10 hours of story gameplay incoming, still I hoped there'd be more to the story.

The fighting system is pretty much like Fullburst with a couple new mechanics added, Guard Break and Counterattack.
Guard Break is an attack that "breaks" the guard of his opponent, a stroke is executed by holding the opponent and knocking him down and leaving him unconscious for a moment, taking a break for the player to carry out a coup that further damage the opponent.
Counterattack is used when an opponent is about to land an attack on the player, the players can knock them unconscious, rendering them helpless and sealing their support.

As the game seems to be focused mostly on the Ninja Tournament, it really ruins it for me. I play the games for the story and not overall whacking and dominating my opponents to the oblivion. But as a long time Naruto fan I have a hard time not recommending this game to anyone, but I do recommend you wait for a Steam Sale, as this game is not definitely not worth 49,99€.
If you're having difficulties choosing between this and Fullburst, don't fret over it.
Buy Fullburst for the sake of the story.

Revolution is a game made for entertaining, not impressing. It is a fanservice, a way to spend time in an enjoyable way, not something that will cause catharsis. Is it good? Depends on how you look at it. As a fighting game, it's superior in every way for their predecessors. Still, there had to be a downside when compared to the old games: it has no storyline. Thing is, the game doesn't need one. I played it 100% to be sure of that. It has a lot of characters and even more sidequests.
There's a whole island to free roam, new areas get accesible as you progress in the tournaments, areas where you can find characters, do what they request to unlock them. On the island you can also exchange medals to get accesories and you can try your luck at the lottery. The tournament mode is a lot of fun, it's well designed and the challange clearly goes higher as you go near the end of the path, the spot where your chosen ninja is acclaimed as being the greatest of them all. Best part is, it doesn't get repetitive. There are obstacles, enemy power ups, all kinds of things to keep you pumped.
There's also a short story involving an abandoned concept, the mecha-naruto, a story which has some humour, some moral talking(you have to look deep) and an emotional end. It can also be considered as a NaruHina fanservice.
One feature that should be noted is the Team Ultimate Jutsu, which actually makes the "who's on your team) matter, as the strong combo involves the compatible characters do awesome stuff together.
30 FPS lock kills the mood for the regular PCGamer, but you won't notice it, as it keeps steady and the actions are fast, flashy and quite spectacular. You can enjoy the combat by choosing what type of extra power your chosen characters will have, the league mode, another tournament mode and the survival mode, where some great challanges awaits.
For the online part I'll say: same old, same old. I have to keep my finger crossed to get a lag free match. Good thing is, achievment hunters don't need to bother with it.
As for the DLC, all are skin packs, the story is safe and tucked away for the next game.
This is the first game I pre-ordered and I don't have any reason to regret it.
The predecessor had a moving story. This one got everything else better, that's why I enjoyed it a lot more.
It has a lot of content and most of it is great, this game delivered on it's promises. While many say it could be better in some aspects, as someone who played all the game has to offer, I don't give a f**k. A storyline would have made it shine brighter than Naruto in Beast Mode, but I guess they're keeping the best for last(next game just has to be that awesome)
This game is a 9.4.

Futher thoughts after more time with the game: Half the new ideas were clearly come up with by a gibbon. The story mode is a joke first of all. The Akatsuki Origins is interesting and takes about an hour. The Two Uchiha is also nice to see but was covered almost in its entirety by that Kakashi filler a while back adding in only a handful of new scenes and taking perhaps half an hour. The last one is a ten minute cutscene with zero gameplay and while it's still nice, I'm sure I don't need to explain why that's stupid. Then there's the one to two hour Mecha Naruto campaign that no one cares about. So yeah. The story clocks in then at less than four hours. No Tournament mode doesn't count because that's the same bloody fight with vaguely increasing levels of difficulty ad nauseum. I'd be disappointed if most indie games only lasted four hours much less a full priced game.

As for the Tournament mode by its own benefits though, it's fun enough and changes up the gameplay a bit. But again the gibbon left his grubby fingerprints all over everything and added a bunch of ♥♥♥♥♥ic special conditions. My favourite of which is when enemy attacks "seal" you. That is; you can't use Chakra for a time. No one apparently explained to the developer that Chakra is an essential part of the game. So your only recourse at this point is to stand around like a lemon with your thumb up your ♥♥♥♥. And this even applies to the free, long range and very hard to see coming and thus avoid Shuriken attacks. That three other characters whose AI only seems to target you can all throw. So you're basically guaranteed to spend that entire time wallowing in utter pointlessness. As well as plenty of other poor design choices and execution.

This game isn't worth £40/$50. It's that simple. I'm not even sure it'd be worth £20. It's barely a move on from Storm 3 Full Burst and while it's still fun most of the time, it's the most irritating game in the series so far. Especially with the amount of on-disk DLC people have already found showing how far CC2 realy have fallen into expoitative, nickle and diming ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Get this if you haven't got 3, but even then I'd say wait for news of a Storm 4. Which is a shame because there's a lot to like in this game too, hence why I still give it a recommendation. But there's so many little asterisks next to that recommendation and my anger isn't really with the game for the most part but at the developers and probably more so, the publishers who need to take a good hard look at themselves in the mirror. Which again is a shame because the developers at least seem like nice guys in interviews.

Original review: I recommend buying this if you have more money than patience and you just can't wait to play as Sage Hashirama, Kyuubey Chakra Mode Minato, etc. or of course you don't own any of the other games. Otherwise, it is still only Storm 3.5 (or 3.75 if Full Burst was 3.5) - an improvement in many areas such as reworkings of old characters and quite a few new things but not really £40 worth of new and improved and as such I'd suggest waiting for a full on Storm 4 or at least a Revolution Full Burst type of deal. Having been with the game series from the start, this one feels more like it's a compromise between the first game and the later ones which is a good thing. Combining the refinery of the combat system and the depth with more elaborate combos and ultimates from the first game.

In short, it's a good game but it's largely the same good game that is has been since Storm 2.
