The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 is a fighting game in which characters use their fists, feet, and various bladed weapons to attack on another. A couple of characters are impaled in a cut-scene, but there is no blood. Since our heroes resort to violence and name-calling at the first sign of any trouble, they aren't particularly good role models. Plus, mild sexual references made by the game's characters during cut-scenes.

What's it about?
NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: CLASH OF NINJA REVOLITION 3 is a follow-up to one of the better fighting games to grace the Nintendo Wii, and it doesn’t disappoint. Following Naruto back to the Hidden Leaf Village, players meet some old friends and enemies while fighting to prove Naruto and his ninja troop’s worth to rescue Gaara. It doesn't evole the franchise much, but the foundation is solid. Using animation from the cartoon series, the story unfolds in cutscenes that introduce the upcoming fight.
Is it any good?
Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 is a fairly deep fighting experience that utilizes every button on the Wii Remote, but the layout of the controller does make things somewhat trying at times. Thankfully, the game allows the use of the GameCube controller as well as the Wii Classic controller which both make controlling the game a lot easier. Jumping, dodging, and countering attacks are performed with various button presses, and the animation is very smooth and evokes the style. The game looks quite sharp for Wii title, featuring cartoon cut scenes straight from the Anime series as well as nicely detailed 3-D representations of the characters from the show.
Online interaction: Online play is available here in both Friend only matches or against a random stranger.
