Ok, here we go, I've been playing DBZ games pretty much since I got ps1 imports, so I've been around the block a few times. The game in general is repetitive, the basic moves are all the same for all the characters, the only difference is each ones fighting style changes the look only slightly, this gets old after a while, not to mention the character list is severly lacking all around, you can get ss4 gogeta, but not ss4 goku or vegeta, not including a lot of other favorites they left out. The super and ultimate moves are definitely awesome, probably my favorite aspect of the game, very crisp and beautiful graphics to go along with them, my only complaint here is the only way to perform ultimates is either you or your opponent need to be almost dead and you have to be lucky enough to have the proper bars to perform the move, other than that, its great. Hero mode is an awesome improvement, but it is severely lacking in almost every aspect. You can only choose whole outfits to try on which leaves you with very few options to choose from, you can only go super saiyan 1 for the entirity of this mode, no other levels are available, the training portion does unlock a vast array of moves and abilities that I feel makes up for the lack of appearance options. I will say I enjoyed playing both story and hero modes and acting out pivotal moments in DBZ history, allowing you to perform alot of the awesome moves done against DBZ enemies we all know and love. Overall this game is definitely worth a rent, but I wouldn't suggest buying it, I hope this helps anyone thinking about trying it out.

okay character customazation is awesome, but you need to unlock more to make more characters and change there styles.
With 2 different stories (hero mode and actual story mode) there is a lot to do. the redrawn and remastered cut scenes are amazing. if anything the games is worth a once through to witness all of the new animation. a true dbz fan will give it a go at least once.

Well ill start this review by saying that this is a terrific game!. Even though its the same dbz story we all know and love but different controls. For one;this is now a strategic/fighting game. Even though this game has ok but very different controls it is easily forgotten when seeing the amazing animations and graphics. The boss fights are very fun and has interactive cutscenes similar to the ones in naruto ultimate ninja storm 2. But they have also brought back the scrolling map in story mode gameplay. You can once again travel the dbz world map and search for hidden enemies and dragonballs. This game also offers a variety of game modes and options. Of one is my favorite is character creation. You can also make your created dbz character become real as you play hero mode as your character. Sounds awesome right, well thats because it is. Well anyway here are my ratings of this game. Graphics/presentation-10
Gameplay/controls-7.5 story mode/hero mode-9
Overall score is a 8.5 for good effort congradulations spike you made a pretty good game to end your career in dbz game designment. So for those of you hardcore dbz fans like me pick this up if you want to have a totally different experiance of dbz. And for those of you who actually like to use your brain get this. But if u dont like stategy games this is a diffinant rent but what ever you do dont start playing this game with out trying training first trust me. Well i hope this review helped remember rent or buy this game definatly deserves a chance to be played!
