 Game Description
Naruto: Clash of Ninja is the first Naruto game for the Gamecube. It is a game with eight playable characters in a cell-shaded game. Each character has their own original style and is different by their signature moves from the Naruto series. Fans of the Ultimate Ninja games might be disappointed with the lack of characters and unlockables. There are very few characters and unlockables. Many fans anticipated the game to have a wide selection of characters and secret items, this is generally why the game was not as successful as predicted.
 Various Modes
 One Player
One player mode is the most basic mode in the game. All you do, is choose you character. Then, you will go through eight stages fighting random opponents at random stages. There is really nothing to it.
 Two Player Battle
This is a mode where you play against one of your friends. Make sure both controllers are plugged in to the correct slots. Then, you will each choose your characters. Now you get to select a stage. This can also be selected at random by choosing the picture with a question mark. Now you will get to choose your overall attack power. This is similar to a handicap available in other games. Now all you have to do is fight until there is a winner. This is a great mode to practice new combinations on. It is also a lot of fun, as you get to play with a friend.
 Play Against Computer
This mode is a one-player, single-match mode where you get to choose your character, battle stage, and attack power of yourself and the computer. It is the same thing as Two Player Battle, but you are going up against a computer.
A one-player mode where you compete to see how many consecutive wins you can get against the computer. Matches are a single round each, and you health is restored according to how much time is left when an opponent is defeated. This mode is one of the harder ones: especially if this is your first time playing the game.
 Time Attack
A one-player mode where you compete based on the time it takes to defeat all eight opponents. Your health gauge is filled after each win. The mode ends after all the opponents are defeated. This mode is fun to try to improve your time on.
This mode is just for fun and practice. You can work on moves and combinations here. If you find your opponent too easy or too hard, all you have to do is press "start" and change the conditions of the battle!
The story of the game is taken right out of the first few episodes of the Naruto Anime. In this mode, you follow the storyline as the main character, Naruto Uzukmaki. As graduates of the Ninja Academy, Naruto and his friends are presented with a new challenge from their new sensei, Kakashi Hatake. Play the game to help Naruto overcome Kakashi's challenge. Then you get to help Naruto as he goes on a mission to save the Village Hidden in the Mist!
