To begin with I wasn't sure what to expect. I mean after DBZBT2, I knew I wanted the 3rd game to the series but besides new characters I didn't know what there'd be. Now as I just said, you guys already know there are many new character including King Vegeta,and GT Kid Goku just to name a few. The game also features a new fighting system, that takes some getting used to but as you do get into it you'll love it, also a day night system. There is a new sonic sway dodging technique just like a dodge system in budokai 3, and they really make use of the motion sensory for the wii this time. The cursor is gone and special techniques make you feel more into it when you do them now, like one of my favorites to do in this game "Burning Attack". Some may disagree and say that its predecessor was better but thats because they may either have a problem with the new controls or the story. The thing with the story is it isn't that long. Its not a bad thing that Atari had in mind, they just didn't want to have their players relive the story over and over again as they have through every game. Instead they put the main battles of each saga and movie etc. One thing I complain though is that they missed some major battles like for instance the gotenks and super buu. In my opinion they should of gave you two options. One where you could relive the story from Dragonball to GT experiencing everything head on while leveling characters with Evolution Z like they did in Tenkaichi 2. Then offer a second option for those who didn't want to go through everything again a smaller story where you play the main battles. Overall this game is worth it and should definitely be known as the best Dragonball Z game to date, due to the exceptional fighting and playabilty in general. Its fast fighting system really puts you into it and makes you feel as you are apart of the show. The music is good too, but if it had music from previous old games such as final bout, and snes ones it would be better.

If you are one person that doesn't know anything about Dragon Ball ( whoa, from what planet are you from!?) then the game is not for you. But if you are a hardcore fan, then is worth trying. It has a lot of characters and many moves that you may want to try. As a pro, you can have the original Japanese audio with English subtitles, which is just great. As a con, the motion sensor of the Wii sometimes doesn't react as it should be but you will get use to it.
Overall, if you are a true fan, get it, is good for a fan. If you are not, there are other DB games that will show you the story in better detail and gameplay.
