Naruto Clash of Ninja Revolution 2
Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
Excerpt: Naruto Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 is a fighting game on the amazing popular Nintendo Wii video game console. The WMG has become the Naruto expert here at Family Friendly Gaming after playing so many Naruto themed games, and watching the television show a few times. This is an Eastern themed anime (aka cartoon) based on ninjas with all kinds of mystical powers. Many of these powers are based on elements, or spiritual aspects.
Excerpt: Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 has a telling title. For instance, nearly every part is a piece of the series' history. It began as Naruto: Clash of Ninja on the GameCube. When it moved to the Wii, it gained the "Revolution." And now, the sequel is Clash of Ninja Revolution 2. You can also tell a lot about the way the games themselves have progressed; instead of revamping, developer Tomy has been adding on to the unchanged core of the game for the last four years.
Pros: Combat is simple yet deep, The story mode is surprisingly involved, There's a ton of stuff to unlock
Cons: There's no online play, The cutscenes look terrible, Mission modes become tedious
Conclusion: Although Clash of Ninja Revolution is certainly a playable game, its main fault lies in the fact that it hasn't really changed since last year's iteration or even since its GameCube days. Sure, there are some added characters this time around, but the gameplay, graphics, and format all feel the same as they always have, which is a real disappointment for the Naruto faithful who run out to grab this title every year.
Summary: All in all,
Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2
is a slight upgrade from the fighters before it. It does bring some authentic and impressive Naruto fun for the fans, but it is in dire need of a series update as well as a system change, as the Wii is just not cutting it. While it's a fast-paced and fun fighter, the control scheme for the Wii remote does not work as well as you would like, so its preferable to use the Classic Controller or the GameCube controller.
Pros: 35 characters to choose from to brawl with., Fast, frenetic gameplay., Over 100 missions to complete., Uses the authentic voice actors from the series., Impressive battle royale gameplay.
Cons: Graphics are underwhelming., Controlling via the Wii Remote and Nunchuk is a nightmare., Very little improvement over the past few Naruto titles., The missions are often copies of others you have completed.
Wii Review - 'Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2'
7 March 2009
Summary: As the first Naruto Wii title designed specifically for the North American audience, Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 promises an impressive list of playable characters from the Naruto universe, a polished and well-balanced fighting engine, and a deep, original storyline that expands upon episodes from the animated TV series.
Excerpt: The game heavily touts its original storyline, which was written exclusively for this North American release. It's supposed to feature two newly created members of the Anbu, the traditionally anonymous black ops squad serving Naruto's Hidden Leaf Village. But like a good substitution jutsu, that's an effective bit of misdirection.
Excerpt: When it comes to anime-based videogame franchises, the two heaviest hitters on the market today have to be Dragon Ball Z and Naruto. But while Goku and his friends seem to be in a slump as of late, the Nine-Tailed Fox is still pushing forward, stronger than ever. Case in point: Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 , the sequel to last year's popular Wii fighting game.
