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.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja storm revolution is a much more improved version of its predecessor in the mechanics, Taking out the parts of the game that was unnecessary such as that hack and slash gameplay and putting in more emphasis on fighting, online play and balance of the game, while suffering problems with a lag at times. However, the game sacrificed most of its epic music, story, and cut scenes(except the mecha naruto storyline which has all this) features drawing fans right down the middle. Those who are looking for a game with new mechanics, more balanced system this is what this game is about. For those that wanted a story mode, it's better off to get fullburst. Both games, however, still seem to suffer from network problems though you are likely to get better connectivity in this one.

During the start of the game players will be able to browse four modes - Online battles, Ninja's world tournament, free battle, and ninja escapades.

The story mode of the game is ninja escapades. To understand the story of the game players will have to play the previous version full burst, read the manga, watch the anime or look for various resources to know exactly what is going on in the series itself otherwise, prepare to be dumbfounded in this series. The game has a seriously short story mode which had its story nicely picked and exclusive. However, can be beaten in 1 hour and 30 minutes making truly short and a letdown. However there is also a Mecha Naruto sidestory in the ninja tournament mode which seems to be the main story line in the game. Previous fan looking for more of the story that is canon will be disappointed to find there is almost none in this version of the game and gone are those epic sequences and music like in fullburst.

The ninja tournament mode is a single player vs three other CPU controlled characters in a free-for-all where the fight is a brawl type to knock each other and earn orbs to progress through a tournament ladder to obtain tons of unlockables such as costumes items, jutsus, ultimate jutsus, items, and cards.
Players will also be able to send out network clones and have it level up toearn items and xp along with battling other network clones that appear. The mode itself has nothing to do with the story on the anime but is filled with roaming gameplay, voiced mini events, lotteries, sub quests to unlock characters, mini games, and secrets to be found through orbs.
After winning the first ninja tournament mode the Mecha Naruto side story will open for a small adventure with a plot. As you progress in the ninja world tournaments more of the world opens up for more to explore and unlock.

Free for all is a mode to test and play with what is wanted so that new players can understand the combos and characters to find, which is the best combos for them along with getting the mechanics of the game down. There are 118 characters to choose from to mix and match along with one or two supports to choose from for each setup.

Online play also has an assortment of new options to choose from such as ranked, private matches, endless mode and ninja war mode are to name a few. Though the game is played through the network by who hosts and can sometimes be laggy making it truly hard to pull off some counterattacks and guard break if this happens, afterwards it just becomes a spam fest between who can hit what and to predict the future as moves are inputted 5-10 seconds later. If there is a good connection, then it gets really fun. The multiplayer seems to be much better in matching player's skill levels and latency but there is still the problem with lag and transmission EVERY TIME NOW.

The game itself, however, had its mechanics improved and that was the highlight here. The support system is reworked and evened out, There is a guard break mechanic in place along with a guard break item, and with a counterattack move to really change things up and help solved some of its imbalance. Before a fight players are able to pick from three different style type, UAD, (ultimate jutsu, awakening, or drive type) where the game lets players concentrate on one of the three aspects in the fight.
The game fighting is often more smooth on the inputs, and the game feels considerably more refined when played. This game is very easy to play and understand on the mechanics but very hard to master and takes some real skills when it comes to fighting others of different styles. Players will have to experiment with many combos to find the one that fits their style or the best ones. So yes, spammers and such can be beaten. The game was created to be fun to play and not really something to be taken too seriously as it is a game created for fun for anyone of all ages.


If you are a die-hard Naruto fan, this is a must-have for you, though if you are looking for the previous story mode that full burst offered you will not see that in this one because again it is focused upon the fighting mechanics, unlockables and online play(which is lagging nonstop). Otherwise wait for the price drop to make the purchase.

+ Graphics and moves are deeply flashy like the anime and felt truly cool to pull off.
+ Refined fighting mechanic that is easy to learn includes guard break and counterattack to help balance out the problems but very hard to master using these since they are about timing.
+ Includes Japanese language choice
+ has a world tournament mode to unlock items in and do special mini games for the collectionist
+ Fighting feels a lot more refined and fluid
+118 characters and two different support with a great amount of combination to create
+ Lots of unlockables, character aesthetic customization and secrets to unlock in the various modes.
+ Easy to learn, Fun to play, but hard to master. Not to be taken too seriously
+Mecha naruto story mode is different.

- No hands on tutorial for new players, but you can read from the menu and learn it since its easy.
- Ninja escapades story is short 1 hour and 30 mins, the mecha naruto seems to be longer.
- Network play depends on who is hosting, can be laggy at times well, most of the time its a lagfest and really unenjoyable because of this if you are matched with low pinged players OR maybe its the net code not sure but holy lag.
- If you get matched up with a pro, you're 90% guaranteed death lol unless you get lucky somehow
- For the price of 49.99, you'll have to be die hard, because this one is focused upon the fighting mechanics' online play, unlocks and ninja world mode. There isn't much to story mode this time around.
- The epic scores and events aren't in this version (Mecha naruto end battle was the only part)
- If you are coming into this game thinking its a serious and very competitive game, then you got it wrong.
- The lag is now unbearable online and a real turn off, as if every player is lagging I can turn on injustice or ssf4 fine without atrocious transmission or lag against other players.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is not as revolutionary as the title might suggest, but I think it's the step in the right direction.

The disappointing thing is lack of canon story mode in the game. Instead, we have Ninja World Tournament, Mecha-Naruto Story and the Ninja Escapades. The Ninja World Tournament is just mode, in which you thrive for championship in a tournament consistin of 4-characters brawl. Initial ranks of the tournament are easy, but difficulty rises gradually. Also, you can roam the island (the bigger progress you made in the tournament, the more areas you can visit), doing challenges, missions and events. Even thought it has absolutely nothing to do with canon storyline, the mode is quite fun to play, some friendship events are hilarius.

Mecha-Naruto story is mode, in which you learn the story of the most controversial element of this game: Mecha-Naruto character. Designed by Masashi Kishimoto himself, Mecha-Naruto is machine based on game's tiltular character. His story is rather short, but it explores topics and problems Naruto fans are pretty familiar with. The story has a potential, but the execution is lacking: it could be a much more emotional story.

Ninja Escapades consists of 3 mini-stories: The Creation of Akatsuki, The Two Uchiha and The Far Reaches of Hope, each has cutscenes made by original show's animators, Studio Pierrot. It's a pitty thought, that only two of these actually consist of gameplay. The stories are supposed to be surpervised by Masashi Kishimoto, but I don't believe that: at least two of these stories consists of logical errors. It was the most obvious in the Creation of Akatsuki: we haven't learned of how the leader managed to win against legendary Hanzo the Salamander; we didn't learn of who were the previous partners of Kakuzu, since he is state to be killing them; Sasori's former Akatsuki partner never saw his true form in the manga; Deidara and Orochimaru didn't belong to the group at the same time, much less Hidan and Orochimaru. I could go on.

The story isn't strong element of this title.

The game is 3D figthing-like game, based on Masashi Kishimoto's manga series. I said "3D fighting-like game" because it uses very simple game controls - you won't be fighting your controller constantly. Instead, you'll be making a very simple button combinations (like block + attack, block + shuriken, chakra + jump etc.) and the basic combos are combosed on just attack button and directional pad.

That is not to say that the game is boring and has no substance to it. The gameplay is very dynamic, there are also counterattack, guardbreak mechanics, alongside with throws, "tilt attacks", support characters, cancels and 3 team types. A few of those mechanics are new: counterattack is reflex-based mechanics that causes long guardbreak to your opponent, if he manages to fall for your couterattack attempt, while guardbreak pills are special attack that, if it hits, renders your opponent helpless for a certain period of time, but can be used only twice during the battle and can be easily interrupted.

The game has been rebalanced in comparison to the previous title. That is not to say, that game is perfectly balanced: some developer's decision (I don't mean mistakes) made me scratch my head. It is hower, step in the right direciton: weaker characters were tweaked, slower were speed up, awakening mechanics were rebalanced (no more priority via dashing), some top-tiers characters were nerfed, ultimate jutsus are not doing that much damage when canceled or used on guardbreak opponents, etc. One of the crucial things is separating awakening, ultimate jutsu and support drive into 3 team types, meaning that you can have only one of those things. Some players are saiyng it's dumbing down the game, but I think it's an attempt for rebalancing the gameplay, and it's a factor of choose how you want to play your character.

Graphically, the game is OK. It's faithful to anime art style, and it's good. Music, on the other hand while decent is not very memorable. I can't recall any track from Mecha-Naruto stroy at all.

I didn't have serious problems with online mode, but evidently many people experienced disconnections, crashes, transmition errors and so on. For the time being, it's the serious problems and the developers needs to do something about that, otherwise online mode will be dead. Speaking in online, ranked matches are very punishing if it comest to earning and losing battle points: it's hard to earn them (you have to fight someone of your rank in order to fight be worth your time), but it's very easy to lose them (losing against someone of your rank is as punishing, but lose against someone like 1-3 ranks lower than you and I guarantee you'll be frustrated). Results are, even with 65% winning ratio, you aren't achieving anything.

Despite all of this, the gameplay feels nice and fun, especially when playing against living opponent. But I think that this game is mainly made for Naruto fans, and I highly recommend it to those people. Fans will be pleased to have about 100 characters to choose. On the other hand, fans of hardcore fighting games like Street Fighter or Tekken are going to be dissapointed.

PROS:
+Rebalanced, fun gameplay
+Narutoverse (for fans)
+Great for multiplayer
+Over 100 characters to pick
+New mechanics
+Little harder than other Storm games

CONS:
+Online problems
+Game balance is still flawed
+Ocassional bugs
+Optimalization could be better
+Too simplistic to be likeable for hardcore fighting games fans
+Dissapointing story modes

OVERALL: 8/10

A short review of NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Revolution.

Pro's

-New attacks to old characters (only for awakening type)
-Ninja world tournament, great addition (you can freely choose which character you want to play)
-New characters
-Short stories (creation of the akatsuki, the two uchiha, the far reaches of hope)
-Online, more stable (not so many transmission errors)
-New battle mode, league
-Character customization
-Combo Ultimates (with certain supports team ultimate changes to new ultimate)

Cons

-New combat system/mechanics (awakening, team ultimate, drive) limits gameplay. Drive type is almost useless in 1 vs 1 without supports. I think it was a bad choice to change mechanics.
-Drive type is broken (too good)
-Ninja world tournament challenges (too many and repetive)
-No story mode
-Online, bad optimization (still lags), steam CPU bug
-Overall game optimization (30 FPS, etc...)

My score: 6/10

If you are planning to buy this game, buy a controller it is definitely worth it.
Overall I think Storm 3 was better game. I will still recommend this game because it is a still great addition after Storm 3.

I'm really a big fan of naruto games and i usually spend most of my time playing them but NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Revolution isn't really worth the money that u are gonna play for it at all adn it has no story ! even the story mode is about some random ninjas fighting eachother to win the tor! NUNS3 is much better than this one !

It's a fun game, however the online has a bit of problems. Connection from NA to EU is usually trash so play with your region to avoid most problems. It is quite unfortunate, but hopefully cc2 will release a patch.

As for single player, it gets a lot of smack talk about it however I found it to be a cute and fun side thing to do.

Yes, combat is simple in execution, but this game is all about precision and positioning. In return, the payoff comes from smooth captured animations with lavish moves that bring the anime to life. Ample game modes and even more unlocked content to customize characters can entertain for hours. An online clone can be personalized and sent out to other worlds, there are special cartoon episodes with interactive content, online play is absolutely brutal; there's a lot to go on here, more than it looks like.

This game is a must have for all those naruto fans out there.. I've just started this and the first impression I got was the extreme nostalgic feeling of those naruto moments.. From the starting cutscene, to the game modes and to the battle, everything is just fabulous!
I can definitely assure, the story, the music, the characters, the combat, everything about this game is a win-win for all naruto fans out there!

P.S. I would really recommend to have a controller to play this game, otherwise it's a major pain in the ♥♥♥ to play with keyboard :P (And yeah, after playing a few battles with keyboard, I've decided to buy a controller xD)

Storyline - no.
There are only a few stories and mehanaruto. Very interesting and touching look at the Uchiha Shisui and his love for a friend and Konoha. History Akatsuki just fun and interesting

Added new characters and new jutsu (combo jutsu).
Scenes differ on who your opponent is, and it's great.

Liked items for characters and DLC costumes

Added own local-bot, which can be customized by you, to send into battle (ask any attack options and bonuses). Other players can now meet the bot at their own game, and it's really cool.

All very interesting and fun

I recommend this game =)

Don't waste your money!

The "storyline" or escapades mode is only 3 escapades, 5 fights in the first one less in the second and none in the third. Tournament mode is nearly just as bad, and full of pretty much nothing but the same missions over and over and over.

For the thrill I was looking for I may just replay the previous game.

The only pro I can think of is that the battle mechanics have been upgraded.

Wow...Disapointing game. Nothing like the one before, there is NO STORY MODE.

Tried to play online but there was NOBODY!!! No connection could be made with another player so no real online play.

Don't waste your money on this crap game.

They pushed online gaming but they forgot to tell the gamers...There was nobody after 10 atempts.

I feel ripped off!!
