Cool animations, graphical upgrade, and story mode. Nothing else is worth it. Doesn't matter how many characters are in the game because they all play the exact same way.
I don't mean like a fighting game which uses the same button inputs for all or multiple characters. (UMvC3,Naruto Shippoden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 are both recent titles to do so) And since they are all unique, players aren't forced to stare at the exact same animations during combat.
DBZUT does the opposite. If you have one character, you have them all because none of them do anything unique other than Specials and Ultras/Ultimate.
If you want story, play the game.
If you want a fighting game, avoid at all costs.
If you love DBZ, check it out for the animations and any other content there may or may not be.
Want every match to be a game of chance, then buy this game.
But to seriously suggest playing against another human being in any real way is completely ridiculous .
Spike has merged with Chunsoft so I would assume and hope the additional funding and manpower will help compensate for the very limited development time for each title.
Contrary to my words here, DBZ fans should at least try this title to see if the QTE simulation system is enjoyable for you. There is a design to all of it, I just don't like games that want to play FOR ME instead of letting me, the player, PLAY THE GAME.
p.s. silent transformations really do contribute to my dislike of the title. Here's hoping the next release can get DBZ console games back on track...then again, how much can be accomplished by 2 development companies in less than a year?? That remains to be seen
