I love the Clash of Ninja Revolution series, but the games have begun to get bland. The story was moderate in length. Some levels were 10 times harder than the others, and it gave it challenge. It would take about 4 days of full gameplay to get all the characters. No joke. Gathering up money to buy the characters was a pain in the butt. It was exactly what I expected. It continued the story with new characters, new stages, some new jutsu. Nothing out of the ordinary. Overall I think the game has it's perks, and hopefully the next one will have more to it, and give everyone a shock. That's why I give it a 7/10.

A new game in the Clash of Ninja series for the Wii is here, and it's the best yet. With gameplay improvements and a large roster improvement, this is the best in the series.

Firstly is the gameplay, it's one of my favorite fighting games. The fighting system is easy to learn, but hard to master. Anybody can mash buttons and somewhat stand a chance against most people, but if you've mastered the fighting and know how things work, you can move circles around those button mashers. So it's rewarding for the casual and more hardcore player.

There's a ton of characters in this, and they all have distinct playing styles. Playing as TenTen is totally different from playing as Hinata.

Now for the story mode: It uses fake difficulty. It's amazingly hard, your opponents have crazy stats and can kill you in a few seconds. And this is on easy mode. Not all of the story mode battles are as hard, but nearing the end of the story mode, you'll be crying. The final fight, against Deidara, has him spamming bombs, flying around, and teleporting everywhere. Plus, you can't win the fight unless you finish him with a special move, meaning you have to save your chakra, so no substitutions. I don't even know how I ever passed him, must be pure luck. Good thing the story mode is more of a bonus, and the real meat of the game is fighting in the other modes, or with friends.

Also this game may turn you away because of the graphics, which are weak compared to the PS3 or 360 Naruto games, but the gameplay in this series is way deeper than any of them. What I've found with those others games, is that they're merely eye candy, and their fighting mechanics come down to button mashing that anyone can master in a day. If you want a deep fighter that you can plan strategies with, this is the Naruto game for you.

Bottom line, this is a very solid fighter that anyone can enjoy. And if you're a fan of the Naruto series as well, it's a fan's dream game and shouldn't be missed.

This is the fifth installment in the clash of ninja revolution series and is the best one yet. The graphics are better than the previous games because every finishing move ends in a close up of the character. The backgrounds are full of vivid colors and feature music that brings nostalgia to fans of the previous games. The gameplay is very much the same but features new attacks for the characters to show how much they have learned. The new characters go as far to include hidan and kazuka who have not even appeared in the english anime yet. The only setback is the return of the dreaded SHOP feature that forces you to endure endless fights with minimal payout to purchase your favorite character, and then do it all again to purcase the next. Coming back strong is the mission feature, which has not changed at all except now you have to buy it for 20,000 ryo from the shop after beating the impossibly difficult story mode that will have you litteraly have you breaking your Wii remotes in frustration. All in all the game has, in gameplay and graphics have topped its predeccesors and strengthened the franchise.
