This game just arrived at my house today, and I was not impressed. The only good thing I had to say about this game is that it looks good visually and the addition of jumping around the different levels of the Dragon Ball story seemed like a good idea. But the new control scheme for the attacks was horrible. It was hard to get used to. The old control scheme from the Budokai games was a lot easier and simple to understand. I didn't like the controls for this game. And i didn't have the patience to fully test them out. Simply put, I was disappointed in how they configured the controls and the fact that the story mode for this game was just like all of the previous DB games, just adding bits and pieces to it and adding a few new characters. Nothing new, nothing original. I don't recommend anybody get this game, unless you like having to play the same story from previous DB titles, with a few new characters. Horrible game. Definitely not worth renting.
pros: great replay value, battle system, story variety, tons of game-play modes, includes almost all the characters you would like to play from dbz, OK graphics (DBBurstLimit looks better), challenging AI
cons: annoying camera angles on some maps, glitchy environment when chars. are smacked around, fighting gets tedious real fast, it seems like the story was lazy having random environment along with script... sometimes characters dont make sense, some cut-scenes for specials are random for example: your in the water and you perform a special and all of a sudden your on the ground again performing the special.
for some reason the makers of the dbz games cant get it right. they always end up being lazy it because they're too lazy to come up a few extra environments or fixing cut-scenes. this game had a lot of potential but little things like this just ruin the game
