Naruto: Naiteki Kensei is a free stand alone game that offers a unique fast-paced experience based on the hit Japanese anime Naruto. Players are able to compete online using a system that combines aspects of a third-person shooter and an action-based fighter to provide a new thrilling experience. The system includes casting clever and powerful Jutsus, stringing together Melee combos, evasive acrobatic free-form Movement, and utilizing an array of Weapons with multiple functions all seamlessly.
I can't believe that this is a HL mod that is to show that gold source "HL engine" is really impressive.
Now like in my last review I'm going to get the major bad parts out of the way and for this mod there is not that much..
For starters not that many servers but for a mod like this it happens and same goes for not a lot of characters but like I said for 1.0 it's very well done. Also the usual start server then crashes but a lot of mods have that problem so nothing much to say there. Last loading now I got a good computer that can run source at full power but there are loading problems with this mod that need to fixed...
Alright the bad out of the way even though there are not that many characters to play but each one has a unique fighting style which is very good that each character has a different attack style. Next is graphics and wow I'm impressed they keep the style from the anime really well done and fits perfectly with each map.
This is a very addicting mod and I hope in the near future the mod team will fix the stuff that needs to be fixed and just add more content to an awesome HL mod that needs to be taken seriously. Even though I gave this mod a 9/10 but it's my seal of awesome for mod that need to be played...
When a developer can use an old engine to make a game that looks as good as games that are being made today, it is a sign of hard work and potential. This mod is by far the best I've downloaded in my history of mods. Only small glitches and non-existant servers are the main flaw, and yet I still have a good hour of fun playing alone. I give this a 9/10, hoping to give a 10/10 on R2!
Great work. I can see, that creators feal passion for this mod. There is huge "feal" of ESF team.
I hope, when NKK team will deside that they have finished NKK, they'll move on on source engine. While I see what they managed to complete on GoldSRC engine, I just can imagine what they could make on source engine.
Good luck... Don't loose your passion for mods.
P.S. Why 9, not 10? No one can be perfect. There is always way to make this mod even better...
Aaahh, yes, one of the most known animes on the world, and one of the best modifications based on it. Naiteki Kensei is, without a doubt, the most perfect combination between action and fun, bringing us the best experience on a melee combat system, and giving us lots of maps for an extra enjoyment (and, of course, the best modelled characters).
