This is the second Naruto game to come to Steam and just like the previous one, I enjoyed it a lot.
The story this time around isn’t following the events of the anime or manga but instead includes an original story about Mecha Naruto and Akatsuki’s backstory. It’s fairly enjoyable but I only played through it once to be honest.
Just like the previous one, the graphics look fantastic and faithfully translates Naruto’s world into a game. The options are little limited though. You can chose resolution, V-Sync, Super sampling and window/fullscreen. I think at this point I should note, the game is locked at 30fps, which isn’t a big deal, the animations are extremely fluid regardless.
In terms of gameplay I find this one to be the best, they’ve included a few new mechanics like counter and guard break pill, and you can chose from 3 different battle types: Ultimate Jutsu Type, Drive Type and Awakening Type. It’s an attempt to balance the game but Drive type seems to be the best from all 3.
There are new 4 player(You and 3 AI) battles that you can enjoy in the Ninja World Tournament, which get boring fast, due to the easy AI. It’s a shame that this can’t actually be played with 4 players.
Other than that there is huge amount of content from a huge rooster of characters., customization items for your characters, cards, titles.

If you are a Naruto fan, this is a must buy, plenty of fan service and fun to be found.

I LOVE THIS GAME!!! IT IS COUNTLESS HOURS OF FUN!! There are so many characters to use as stated by the store page there over 100 playable character and even with the amount of hours i have put in I have not used every special that each character possesses. What people should know before buying this game because i know a lot of peopee will compare this game to its predecessor Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst is that this game for the msot part has no story or campaign really it is literally just nonstop fighting which is still really fun but for a storyline i suggest you purchase the previous naruto game. All in all this game is really fun and worth money my only critique is the fact that long range characters are all OP.

4/5 Stars Lets just get to the verdict.
Pros
- Great Gameplay
- Decent Amount of Content

- Easy to Learn

Cons
- Not Much Replay Value
- Bad Online Multiplayer (Servers Lag Like Hell)
- Controls and Move Animations get Repetitive
- Tournemant gets Repetitive

Should You Get IT?
Yes, if you have friends to play locally with. It is definitly a good game, especially with friends. Story mode isn't a seller though. Still good for single-player though.

Not having played a fighting game for over 10 years it took some getting used to.
That said, once i figured out Y + A was tho close in quickly, I pwned.

The game has some freaking amazing uchiha and akatsuki lore.
I bought it during the xmas sale and its well worth the money!

I will definitly be playing this game A LOT.

Hot damn that lore was cool.
I also stream it so if you want to see it, check my profile for a link ^^

From ShonenGameZ.com:

Naruto is one of the most beloved Anime/Manga franchises ever. Some people put it right up there with the likes of One Piece and Dragon Ball Z, and it belongs to the notorious “Big 3″ group, the three highest selling titles in Japan.

While this may be true for the Manga and Anime sales, what about the video games? Anime game titles had their day during the PS2 era, where just about anything got a video game. During the PS3 age we started to see established franchises growing, and branches from the main trees of gaming falling off.

This meant no more Clash of Ninja, Rise of a Ninja, Ninja Chronicles, everything Naruto in gaming would be run by the Ultimate Ninja series, and that left the fate of Naruto on systems in the hands of Bandai Namco and Cyberconnect2. Together, the team has developed some of the prettiest fighters ever, with the Storm games, but when smooth graphics and flashy cutscenes aren’t enough, the team likes to come back and do a game that focuses more on the battle between players.

That, would be Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution. The Storm series has multiple entries. You have Storm 1, 2, and 3 which are all direct sequels of each other, and follow the main Naruto storyline. Then you have the pair of Generations and Revolution, which focus on side stories, while still introducing characters that are new from the manga/anime. These two titles however focus on one major thing, changes to the battle system.

Naruto Storm Generations gave us the Sub Bar system, tilt cancels, combo cancels, and more. This time around we have more wide spread changes to the game engine with the splitting of three major aspects of your character.

The Drive, Ultimate, and Awakening types being introduced into the game, limit, and open up your options in weird ways. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, however Drive type does seem a little unnecessary.

Overall the main battle focus will most likely always remain the same. One button attacking with a few combos and flashy Jutsu, however this time around the changes that were implemented feel almost forced. There really was no reason to split up the different types, and if it was to make the game work better for more hardcore players, it falls flat on its face, due to how unbalanced the system can be.

The battling is still fun, and you can have some crazy matches against friends and rivals online, or in local multiplayer. You’ll find that a lot of your time is going to be spent in these modes, because what comes next is going to make you want to do so.

The story mode. The Storm games are actually being noticed more and more for their excellent story telling, and the cutscenes that bring the anime to life. This, should be the case here, however it doesn’t work all that well.

You have two modes, Ninja Escapades, and Ninja World Tournament. Ninja Escapades will be easy to understand for players of Generations. There are anime cutscenes, you do a few fights, and you get another anime cutscene. These cutscenes are actually done very nicely by the animation studio, however they’re pretty compressed, and it causes the edges in a lot of shots to look pretty bad.

The actual story that the escapades tell are pretty interesting and they drag you in a bit, however it does feel like as they started to develop these modes, there was a level of laziness. You notice that the first mode is the longest, then the second story is really mostly cutscene, and the final “story” is only cutscene… No battling.. why? Whats the point of that?

The other mode… Ninja World Tournament, it really is.. something else.

There really is an effort here to give it some kind of story feel, but there are far too many moments in this mode that make you feel like they were copied and pasted. By block B, you’re going to want to hack the game, mod Shizune, Mabui, and Shikaku into playable characters, and do your ultimate jutsu on them over and over.

It honestly makes no sense that this mode feels more like an after thought, if even that, because it was one of the things that they advertised the most. The Mecha Naruto side story that comes after you beat the first block of NWT is pretty tasking also.

About halfway through, you know whats going to happen. Its like the developers took all of the Cliches from one of the Naruto movies, and pasted Mecha Naruto in. It isn’t terrible, but when I played I couldn’t stop wishing it was over.

Overall, if you’re looking for an updated version of Full Burst, with a different feeling to the battles, new flashy attacks, and a few cool moments, then pick up this title. Its sure to keep you online atleast for a few months until the next game gets announced.

Naruto Shuppuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution gets a 7/10

I like the game. Take this only for the multiplayer, since the story mode is boring as hell. Like every game of Naruto, its story mode is too easy, and even if set on super hard it will still look easy.
Multiplayer mode, imo, is where this game shines.
One particulary critic I will make however is regarding how the game was made. Almost all character models were taken from the previous Naruto games. there is no difference! one can only distinguish this from the other one on steam simply because here you can choose between true awakening, ultimate justu, but beside that there is nothing new. Sure, there are also new character, but I don't think that is enough to make the price go to 49,99€. I own both game and there is no change in attack animation, no change in the voice, and they even kept the same subtitles with the SAME grammar - and not only- mistakes ! (in the italian version 4 mizukage makes a grammar mistake and the Raikage, even if he says "that's the power of the raikage, in the italian subtitles it says "that's the power of the hokage") The same kind of errors appeared in both this and the other game, they didn't even bother to check them or to make something new. On internet is already possible to see how the next game will be, and again I already recognised moves already seen. I give him a positive vote but, as a fun of the series, I'm quite disapointed

With MKX out and Tekken 7 in the shadows, I felt tempted to play this game once more only to remember what a great port it was. Played it on console as well, has every character that ever had relevance in the show, great graphics, wonderful soundtrack, love the FX, solid 8.5/10 from me! Get it if you're a fan of the anime!
