Okay so I'm doing a review on the game Naruto Shinobi Revision by Kang 123q. This is my first review so tell me how I do. Anyways onto the review.

Ok so I log into the game and I see a nicely done title screen...

Wait, wheres the E in delete...?

Moving on. After hitting the New button and entering your name and gender, you are brought to the tailor and village inviters.

The system of choosing is okay, but am I the only one that feels that since all village invitation NPC's are wearing the same thing that all the villages offer the same thing? There are jounin suits and chuunin vests for every individual village, so I don't see why they couldn't just make the village inviters wear that instead of all wearing the leaf suit. Also, it kind of bugged me that the arms do not move whatsoever when you move up and down, but they do when you move left or right.

Anyways, after choosing a village you are brought to a room that is somewhat like the village selection and are required to pick your Father's bloodline. As I'm walking through the clan selection looking at the character icons used from many different games, I notice something strange...

A Sora clan, eh? I like Kingdom Hearts and all, but it just doesn't fit into a Naruto game at all in my opinion.

So, I keep walking to look at more of the clans and I notice yet another strange thing.

The last five clans are all using the same icon, and the icon isn't even a Naruto icon. They are all Naruto clans, yet they have some insane person for an icon. Are the final five clans some secret ninja-Saiyan breed or something?

After choosing your fathers bloodline you are brought to another clan selection screen to choose your mother's bloodline. Once you pick your mother's you are brought to the spawn point. Immediately I noticed 17 dead players, a clay bird, 4 puppets, and a sawarabi no mai.

Pretty disturbing for a new player to see that. I just take it as a warning sign to stay as far away from civilization as possible until your actually strong enough to actually be seen in public without dying instantly.

As I walk out of the spawn point to begin playing the game, I see once again a random jutsu icon. And no it wasn't just one random jutsu icon, it was five. Seriously whats up with that?

Walking into the academy I see logs with three different colored tags on them, along with three players and a clay bird.

No ones talking so I decide to try and start a conversation.

Seventeen Says: Hello
The nara robert has been killed by Jack Vi Britannia!
(Konoha)-(Bloodlines:Uzumaki/ Uchiha)-{None}-{}-{Genin}-{.:Leon:.}: ok thnx
(Star)-(Bloodlines:Kakashi/Hyuuga)-{Team 10}-{Member}-{Chuunin}-{Brent}: np
Screamo attacks Seventeen for 1.2045e+006!
Seventeen has been killed by Screamo!
You will be brought back to your spawn point in 10 seconds!

What a greeting. The same person then killed me the next two times I walked into the academy, so I decided to go to the outdoor training area where no one was. Before being killed by the same person once again outside, I had the chance to hit a log.

You kawarimi the log.

Um, wow. I'm not saying I don't like fast leveling, but that is a little over the top. That leaves me nothing to work for except for the strength to kill players. If you are not on the game 24/7 training then there is no way for you to survive among these people.

After I acquired my jutsus, I decided to test one on a Sound 5 Village Shinobi.

Seventeen: Chidori Blade!!
Sound 5 Organization Shinobi was hit by 0's Chidori Blade for 202104 damage!!

Hmm, cool, but who in God's name is 0? I was the only one around and I tested it many other times, so it was in fact my jutsu that hit him. Also may I mention that 202104 damage was after hitting a log ONCE. As I said before, the fast leveling is way too over the top.

Apparently logs are the main source of training, figures. As I'm exploring the game, I see a player and decide to check his stats.

What the hell? That's just ridiculous...

For some strange reason I was unable to use jutsus after the chidori blade, but I was too busy roaming around to notice for awhile. Eventually I came across the base to an organization hidden in a mountain. Cool, but after entering I was unable to move left or right. I relogged and it was not fixed so I paged a GM to help. 5? 10? 15...? Nope it took 20 minutes for a GM to respond and kill me so I was fixed.

Eventually I was summoned to a GM, and I was talking to them and looking through the verbs. I went into the custom tab and saw a bunch of different icon options. I decided to give myself a Riku icon from Kingdom Heart's, but sadly I could barely see it under the nighttime and snow effects.

I can barely even see anything at all. What I can see is that the base icon disappears when training on a ninjutsu log.


A GM eventually started a chuunin exam so I decided to take it. I noticed something very wrong about the second question.

None of the answers are technically right, but in the game the second answer is the right one. That just shows ignorance.

The game does have a website and forums. The forums are a pretty active community of players, but the website is extremely outdated.

*My Final Overview*
Gameplay 5/10 - Well since you acquire all of your jutsus in one log hit all that is left to do is kill, participate in tournaments, and train.

Originality 4/10 - The game is clearly a rip of Axerob's Way of the Shinobi which instantly drops the originality factor. Also only a few icons are original. There are a few things thrown in here and there (weather, sora & ichigo clans, custom icons) that set it apart from others, but besides that its just another rip.

Presentation 3/10 - This may just be the worst part of the game. There are so many bugs and grammatical errors you could've sworn that you were playing a game made by a seven year old.

Community 4/10 - I found the community of Shinobi Revision to be very rude and perverted. Also they are quite unwelcoming to new players as seen above. There are a few friendly players, but besides that it's basically walking through a battlefield trying to get anywhere.

Staff 5/10 - They are usually AFK and even if they aren't they neglect their duties a lot of the time. Some GM's abuse, but it isn't a big problem. It takes awhile to get help if you need it though.

Overall 4/10 - Honestly, this game does not live up to it's rank. If you have days and days of nothing to do but train, then this game might be for you. If you are a casual player or just someone who enjoys interactivity in a game, then it is not for you.
Okay this is alot better then the other one but well...you know the rest but im not going to start anyway good job i suppose.
Well said, Fast leveling is the devils work, wats the poiint of hittin for a million, when you can do the same with 100
its a good review in my opinion, i played the game out of curiousity and honestly this is a fair and in all truth an overly kind review of a game that falls on its face on presentation,balance,gameplay and originality.

but truth be told dan in most people's eyes this game doesnt deserve #1 rank either GOA or BLN personlly no offence i prefer BLN =D

I was the same way, I have no problem with "rips" as long as they actually contribute to the game and not basically take wat is given and twist into a mangled mess of icons

Thats fair, BLN is a solid piece of work and i endorse only the games that make it to the front page. We only put other games in the listing for the sake of genre categorizing.
not a bad idea ever since BLN returned from RP back to PvP its good i just dont want alot of what happened last NSR review to happen here the racism and stuff had to report alot of them Lummox replied like 22 emails to me sayng it was taken care of =D these children these days but i do agree to what your saying

Well I personally am not a fan of the NBOTLS source,(I think its sloppy), Only thing i've seen is a use of BLN icons on the Bleach Unleashed game, but buster has apparently has given permission to the use of the said icons
i doubt hes given permission, more like called off the angry mob simply because its not worth it. Buster is very serious about his icon graphic artists work but sometimes the "competition" who has the same work ethic to steal arent worth even complaining about.

Either BLN has the nicest icons ive ever seen for a Byond game
Not bad, Good job. Well written.
Those 5 Icons are actually my icon.

Except, recolored red and they added that flame or w/e behind it. I made the original for Krios En..w/e for Pokemon Magma Red
The weather and night/day feature is from a library you can find on BYOND's hub. It's not original. You should've put 0/10 for originality.
It's a good review.
and lol i see something similiar in the screenshots

See the bird ?
