Any DBZ fan must have this game especially goku fans cuz he is a beast in it. Gohan fans maybe disappointed with the lack of older gohan sucking but the teen gohan is still a beast but goku is still better

This game is good, not great, but good. The controls are a little clunky, sometimes unresponsive. The camera definitely needs work. It's ridiculous when you can't see you or your opponent on the screen at the same time. Also the cutscenes have been reduced to snipits and scrolling dialog boxes. What happened to the full on story telling through cut scenes? This game does have it's up side to it. The graphics have improved a bit and the arenas are definfitely larger then before. Love the destruction in the city. Fights feel a bit weak on the melee side and a bit over powered on some of the super attacks. I would definitely recommend a rental if your a fan, wouldn't pay money for it though.

Very Good

Flawed; but one of the best ideas yet

There's a lot of people saying "Don't buy this, it sucks! It's flawed!" Well, yes. It is flawed. But the idea for the game is incredible and it's pros far outweigh the cons. The controls sometimes are laggy and the fighting system used in this game is far different from that of any other DBZ game to date. A few flaws pointed out are the camera issues and the controls. Fact: The camera although is a pain at times, has not once rendered me incapable of attacking. Normally, the period of time where the camera appears out of whack where you can't see, is used by the computer to recharge ki. You can also dash to a new angle to very easily get back in view, so don't let them make it sound worse than it is.

This is the second game that's been released to the Xbox/PS3 systems (Burst Limit being the first) and it's a huge upgrade from the first. If you're wanting a game to tell the DBZ story, this isn't the game for you. It's focused purely on fighting. The fights are full 3D-Explorable maps. You are able to fly on command in a full 3D environment. Allowing you to fly away to recharge ki or attack from afar.

Some of the new mechanics of this game that are wonderful are the graphics, the free movement that we haven't seen for a long, long time, and the rechargeable ki . The fight system is intended to bring us in to a new-gen fight system and they have done just that, despite a few camera and control flaws which as I stated, are nothing unbearable.

You have over 70 characters + transformations to choose from. The ONLY issue I had with this game, and I'm very picky, is the inability to transform mid-fight as in the last few Budokai games (ie. SS1-SS3) and the fact that it stops at SS3 where Budokai 3 (PS2) ended with the Baby Saga and SS4. I'd love to see this fixed in future games as mid-transformations add a challenge

The game has its flawse: but it's still the best DBZ game released since BT3 and is a must buy if MY pet peeves don't bother you that much. Try it yourse
