DBZ:BoZ Friendship Ki required!

DBZ:BoZ is a - fast pace visual brawler, with the chaotic all-out brawl from the anime. There are short comings to the game, and missing elements that should have been, and elements that should of never been added.

Story
It follows Goku's story from the fight against Radditz to him finishing off Kid Buu. If you watched the anime or played any of the previous DBZ games much hasn't change.

Gameplay
It is fun having multiple fighters zooming around fighting and Ki blasting each other. Then soon you will discover the "Trinity MMo system" in the game. This immediately sucks all the fun right out. You will NEED to keep one healer in the team.

Yes a healer in DBZ.

I must of missed those episodes or moments where Gohan shoots a healing beam at Trunks and restores all his Hp.

Then comes the whole replaying missions to get better equipment, or in this case cards. You equip these cards to better your fighter and you will need to do this for your CPU companions other wise you will not succeed in future missions.

Mutli-player
Versus mode never quite happened for me. I tried several times and I either met a room that booted me because I didn't have high level cards, I didn't pick healer, I didn't pick the right character to get an achievement with in versus.

Coop
It was fun for a time then it got boring fast. If no one picks a healer then you are doom to fail the mission. Guess what I got to play even mission. I finish the game by playing healer straight through. It didn't feel like I was playing a DBZ at that point.

Real talk - if you can't get three other friends to get this game, then by the time you rent this you will be stuck playing healer just so you can unlock Super Saiyan God. Then most likely send it back in disgust questioning whether you just got done playing a DBZ or a healing simulation. At least with friends you can cycle turns.

There is much more I would like to go on about but alas gamefly very limiting characters prevents m

I am a hardcore Dragon Ball fan and i am telling you this game is GARBAGE, TRASH, RUBBISH. Just not worthy of the title Dragon Ball Z. The gameplay mechanics are extremely repetitive and tedious. you will find yourself trying to do combos and after trying every possible combination, you will realize that there is only one combo for each character. I dont know about you but I love Ki blasting my enemy to shreds and this game took that away as you can only fire one Ki blast at a time from one hand and cannot even charge it up. There are sooo many more issues I have with it such as the targeting system and movement but I'll just end by saying the core elements that have attracted me all these years(from Budokai to Raging Blast 2 and every game in between) have diminished. Do not buy, rent only!

the control it's not really that good and trying to keep on the person that you're fighting is pretty hard and it just one button combo
