Parents Need to Know
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.
Is It Any Good?
Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution offers eight fighting arenas -- which is plenty -- though we've seen a few of them in past Naruto video games. In this Wii exclusive, however, each stage has two areas you can fight in, therefore you can toss an enemy off to one side of the ring and it might lead to the secondary location to continue the clash. And thanks to nine game modes, you can expect a lot of bang for your buck. The single-player options include training, a story-driven mission mode, player vs. CPU, time attack, survival mode, and fun (but basic) mini-games. Multiplayer modes are two-player head-to-head or one-on-three -- against each other or against computer-controlled fighters -- and a cooperative survival mode against computer-controlled opponents.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
