Excerpt: As I said in my review for Naruto: Path of the Ninja for Nintendo DS , Christmas ’07 belongs to the little ninja that could. He has no less than three games bearing his name on shelves this shopping season, so needless to say, he’ll probably be fighting to become the Hokage in more than a few homes the morning of December 25.
Summary: Parents need to know that this cartoon fighter looks and feels similar to the popular TV series. The game doesn't show blood, gore, or intense violence, but it's a fighting game. Also, the "mild suggestive themes" warned by the ESRB come out of the clothing worn by the female fighters, which is short and tight.
Summary: Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution is a North American Wii exclusive title, and will include characters that have never been featured in the Clash of Ninja game series. The game will follow the storyline of the TV series and will take advantage of the Wiimote in fast-paced ninja action for up to 4 players in 9 different gameplay modes.
Excerpt: Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution is the next installment in the Naruto: Clash of Ninja series. The big disappointment here is that it is not a new game, it is merely a remake of the Gamecube’s cell-shaded 3D fighting game, Naruto: Clash of Ninja. The only change in the game is the fact that now the player uses a Wiimote and Nunchuck instead of a Gamecube controller (nut you can use the Gamecube controller if you don’t want to use the Wiimote and Nunchuck).
Excerpt: Since becoming all the rage with the kids these days, it was inevitable that Naruto, already a cottage industry of merchandising, would make its way onto the Nintendo Wii. And surprising no one, it comes in the form of a fighting game. Clash of Ninja Revolution loosely follows the premise of the manga and anime series it’s based on. In a nutshell, Naruto, a brash and troubled lad wants to be the best ninja in his village.
Conclusion: When it comes to how Revolution sounds, it's pretty good. While I do miss Clash of Ninja 2's menu music [as CoNR's just doesn't feel the same, and not to mention Sakura voices the selections this time], the rock riffs in the Mission mode selection screen is something I could easily listen to at any time and enjoy it.
