I give the them credit for trying, and for making the graphics totally amazing. The thing I hate about this game, is the pure terribleness of the fighting sequences. I would hardly call it fighting, because you have to do what it says. No making up combos, no freedom to do anything, and the blasts Ex: (Kamehameha) is impossible to use, because you never know when and where you can use it. I think this game deserves less than a 1, because they made a complete mockery of the DBZ Tenkaichi series. I seriously do not recommend this game to anybody who has enjoyed this game in the past. Go and rent Dragon Ball Z Tenkaichi 1 or 2, those are the best games to play with your friends! But seriously, do not get this game, it is terrible!!
To start ill tell you what really bothers me about this game which is the fighting system. Unlike the previous DBZ games, the fighting system takes away the freedom and flow that a dragonball z game should have. The two different battle ranges really killed the "battle- flow" that was enjoyed in many other dragonball z games. I also felt that the fighting system has become too cinematic, you can only have about a 4 hit combo before it takes you into the cinematic mini game. Besides the poor fighting system i felt that this was a great game. I felt that it had enough game modes that will keep players entertained for a long time. I love the redone cinematics for the storytelling in the Story Mode, and the Hero Mode is a great addition that i would love to continue seeing in future dragonball z games. In conclusion i felt that this could have been one of the greatest dragonball z games to be released in awhile, but in the end it is a fighting game and its poor fighting system is enough to ruin the game in my opinion. If you are a dragonball z fan like myself, its definitely worth a play, otherwise i wouldnt waste my time.
