For people who've been playing Storm games for a while we're getting more of the same with this installment all be it with a new fighting system for the Ninja World Tournament. 4 people in an arena combat to collect orbs which they get on each hit on an opponent, to me this sounds like it would be interesting later on but I've only done the D and C rank stages. The AI doesn't really seem to display any intelligence with this system and seems to just attack for the sake of attacking rather than going for the opponent with the most orbs but like I said before I've only played at the lower ranks.

For fans of the anime nothing here is canon at all. So if you were looking to get this game to conclude the series without the filler this isn't for you and you need to go check out Storm 4. Also there is no real recognition by anyone in relation to what character you use for the tournament. I decided to use Naruto with Kurama's cloak but when I went to speak to Konohamaru, Shizune, Iruka, Hinata, Kiba and Shino they all acted like they were talking to a stranger. Of course this is jst a nitpick and doesn't affect gameplay but to me that reeks of lazy writing.

7/10 Definitely pick up during the next sale if your a Storm fan.

Pretty good game for its franchise, Here are my Pros and Cons for it.

I only suggest this game if you are fan of Anime: Naruto Shippuden

Pros:
+ A lot of playable characters. They added a lot more compared to Storm 3.
+ Better graphics.
+ 3 playable "little" storys, cutscenes are from anime and in 2 of them you actually get to fight, but not like boss battles. In third you just watch.

Neutral:
~ Tournament, Is really boring, But someone might find it entertaining.
~ Mecha-Naruto story mode, Is really boring, but as I said about tournament, Someone might find it interesting.

Cons:
- A lot of characters aren't updated since Storm 2.
- We have 3 types of gameplay for each character, Ultimate Jutsu, Awakened and Drive type, Which I hate.
- Only few new stages added.
- Online still has a lot of problems
- Few characters are too overpowered (Tenten, Shino, Temari, Deidara and ect.)
- Spamming Counters.
- There isn't any storyline.

I recommend this game only for Naruto fans.
I give 8/10

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution can not perfect the series just enough to make us warmly recommend its purchase before the final chapter. Some introductions to mechanical level are undoubtedly interesting, but the balance we felt a bit 'dancer and the new type of fighting, enjoyable only in single player, too chaotic. Put simply, an imperfect work that does not represent a concrete evolution. Fans will appreciate again for your endless roster and its spectacular nature, but you could do a lot more.

So I'm a huge Naruto fan, but I wouldn't recommend buying this game, since Storm 4 or even Storm 3 is a better choice to get.
Here's the list of reasons why:
• There's no Story mode, the singleplayer contains:
1. "Adventure mode". Almost identical mode from Storm 3 and older titles where you complete various requests and run around the map (an island in this case) just with some tweaks like 4 man battle royal (which sadly wasn't implemented online). Adventure mode was fun for just like half an hour.
2. "Ninja Escapades". Kinda like a 3 part anime OVA with some battles included. "The Far Reaches of Hope" - Team Minato story (no battles at all, pure animation); "The Two Uchiha" - Itachi and Shisui storyline; "The Creation of the Akatsuki" - a story about Akatsuki.. (duh). This mode was pretty awesome but it's short and the replayability of it is very low.
3. And, of course, the mainstream freebattle with new mode called "League" which is kinda "meh" but there are no downsides for having this in the game.
• Many optimization issues like random frame drops, high CPU usage in sessions and online battles which was the reason for some people not to play online at all (like me).
• Cancerous online experience. Even though I couldn't play online, I know for a fact from watching tons of videos on Youtube or reading comments that online was literally a crap (unless you only play with friends). Many characters are unbalanced or broken, fighting types were completely unnecessary and the counter was the worst of them all. Also the tournament was ruined because the spectator thingy was removed.
• Lack of graphic settings, bad keyboard support (Though it goes for every Storm game).
• Removal of old EMS Sasuke, some older stages and a few ultimate jutsus. (I don't get the reason why?)


Pros:
• Few more extra characters, some (not many) updates for older characters (mostly awakening actions). Also 3 new humongous awakenings, that, in my opinion, are sick! (Obito,Madara,Hashirama)
• Character customization (secret factors/accessories/substitutions)
• Smoother flow of battles (where's my 60 fps though?) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
• Team combination ultimate jutsus.

Overall, a solid 6.5/10 and a good reason not to get hyped a year before release.

Storm 3: Full Burst was good, but Storm Revolution brings the Storm series back, even better than before!
Pros:
+ Improved Single Player Port
+ Framerate is far better than Storm 3, but still could use some work
+ Gigantic Character Roster
+ Only 3 storylines, but satisfying, especially with anime cutscenes
+ Characters are more fun
+ Characters are balanced
+ Online stops disconnecting during a match

Neutral:
+- Ninja World Tournament is satisfying, but making a 4 player (1v1v1v1) battle system a single player exclusive...... Ehhhhhhhh

Cons:
- Framerate online is STILL awful
- Button commands for all characters are the same; a bit repetitive
- Still a lack of optimization options
- No actual story mode

Overall: 8.3/10 - Glad to see that the PC port improved. Keep up with learning from your mistakes, Bandai Namco! Your games are great, ignoring the port!

Buy this game only if you have friends who are willing to play, otherwise you will have a multiplayer-oriented game with no story mode to play alone, in this case, go back to Ultimate Ninja Storm 3.
Of course there's the online mode, but it's really hard to find another player. And even if you find another player, he'll be probably lagging or in the top score rankings, or both.

As the Naruto series slowly comes to an end, I find myself saddened and desperately trying to find Naruto experiences that will help me relive the greatest moments from the manga and anime. This is such a rich universe filled with loveable characters, epic battles, and awesome powers. Utimate Ninja STORM Revolution brings the mythos and AWESOME to life at every step.. But there are opportunities.

First, I will warn you that the console versions still seem to be the way to go but this port is the best I've played so far. We're all hopeful Storm 4 will deliver across the board but this game is no consolation prize. What I love about this game is that it strikes a great balance between action/adventure game and deep fighter. The exploration and questing is as satisfying as pulling off 60+ combos, calling in support, or pulling off an amazing block/comeback.

Replay value is a huge thing for me. As a family man, I can't buy every game that comes out so, when I buy a game, it needs to provide tons of replay value and fun. Revolution certainly fits the bill there.

Really, I love everything about this game. It looks beautiful and the PC frame rate issues seem to have been resolved. There are only a few things that bug me. They are not deal breakers but it's good to know they are there:

1) Loading Times - They feel too long for what the game is.. Sure, there is the open world component but loading between menus seems very archaic to me. You may want to load this game onto your SSD, which I may very well do. Mind you, my gaming rig is not a bleeding edge system but it is more powerful than the average PC so this should not be happening at all.

2) Button Assignments - While you can remap buttons fully and controller support is flawless, I still don't get the button mappings in this series. I feel that wasting a button for charging chakra is silly but I suppose it makes sense with the mechanic of chakra-loaded attacks. A dedicated shuriken button, however, is really goofy.. But no biggy. I would just rather see a weak/medium/strong setup for more control over your combos and fighting style; that way, people can't write this off as a mere button masher.

3) Lock-On System - The 1v1 battles are still the best. I love the concept of FFA/Battle Royale, but the lock-on system here still leaves something to be desired. You click the analog stick to unlock and click again to lock on, but it's not always clear which target you will lock onto. A simple fix would be to have the crosshair appear on your targets as you move your characters, then click to confirm the lock. Easy.

Regardless, this game is tons of fun and it makes me want to go back to the XBox 360 and even Gamecube games. That's not because this game sucks but, rather, it's so good you want to explore and revisit all the Naruto games. I hope they make proper ports of all the games from previous platforms but, more importantly, I hope they make them proper ports, deserving of the PC platform.

Anyway, back to UNS Revolution...

One feature I absolutely LOVE is the Network Clone. This is an avatar that battles online players while you are away from the game. They pop up in other instances, collecting items and experience. You can fully customize your Network Clone and Story/Ninja Tournament characters, which I love because this gives the unlockables even more value.

Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution combines the best of breed technologies and game mechanics from games like Mystic Heroes, Dynasty Warriors, Dragon Ball-Z (the good ones, not Xenoverse), and Forza (i.e. driveatars). Truly, this game is a treat. If you're a fan, don't hesitate.. Though I will say it is better-suited at $40 or less, not $50.. At least on PC.

With regards to Ombre's review and similar write-ups, the Story/Campaign is not boring if you don't mind running around a bit and reading lots. There is quite a bit of dialogue and not that much voice acting, which isn't a bad thing but it does make me feel that this is a licensed game that should have released at a more appealing price point since they did cut a few corners.

When you choose your "move type", you have to choose between Awakening (buffed character), Support Drive (buffed defense/attack support moves), or Ultimate Justu (unlocks OP ultimate). I think this is actually a selling point for more casual players or folks like me, who can't dedicate as much time to gaming and certainly not one game in particular, no matter how much we love said game. If you were able to have Awakening and Support Drive together, for instance, it'd be pretty OP.. And it would widen the gap between newer players and dedicated/hardcore vets. That would make the experience too exclusive and essentially render the online gameplay useless.

Speaking of online, I have not played online with the exception of challenging a few Network Clones. To that end, I felt really underpowered. I landed tons more hits than my opponents and yet they still won. The time you invest in this game unlocking things, leveling up, buying ninja tools, etc certainly does give you an edge. The players I battled were level 30ish. Battles do come down to skill but it's tougher when you are matched up against more seasoned players so that's something to keep in mind.

Overall, I would totally recommended this game. I reiterate that this feels like more of a $40 game but there is tons of value there, regardless of the price point. I recommend Revolution without hesitation if you love fighting games, anime, and/or Naruto but temper expectations just a little bit. IF you're super picky, I'm sure you will find glaring flaws. =oP
