Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 - hands on

The Nine Tailed Fox works his Jutsu on fans one more time

The strongest part of the first Clash of Ninja was its presentation, and Clash of Ninja 2 is no different. The cel shaded visuals look almost like they were pulled straight from the cartoon. The over-the-top special moves are particularly fun to watch. There's just something wickedly satisfying about Naruto busting out his Shadow Clone Jutsu and beating the snot out of a friend with a handful of copies of himself. And that's just one of the unique moves available from the cast of misfits. Best of all, since the game retains the simple control scheme from the original, it's a cinch for even the most novice player to jump in a hand out a beat down or two.
