This game is amazing, the graphics are the best of any DBZ, expected since it's on the PS3. The powers and fighting are amazing, Drama Pieces are a nice addition, albeit not something this game needed. The ability to pick your own Ultimate Special was a nice surprise for me. The look of the auras is amazing and the fights are all fast pace and simply amazing. But it's only down fall is the amount of characters. The older DBZ games have increased the number of characters with each installment, albeit they counted transformations in the final numbers. But the number of characters in this game don't come anywhere close to the last game. Broly has gone back to not even transforming and is stuck in Legendary Super Saiyan, The highest level of Super Saiyan you can transform into is 2 and that's only with Teen Gohan. Trunks and Vegita can go to there Super forms but can go no higher. Goku can go no higher then Super Saiyan. Krillin and Kid Gohan can "transform" to Unlocked Potential. Piccolo, Cell, and Friezza round out the transforming class and they can all go to there final forms. There are 21 characters (40 with transformations), I think it would be better if they had included more characters in the game. Though this in no way takes away from the general game play, just limits the choices you have, and might even take away your favorite characters (I know it did one of mine). With any luck we will see character downloads or a far greater increase in the characters included in the next game.
First of all, the game doesn't go beyond the Cell games. Bonus was a couple Bardock and Broly fights. This game did not give me what I wanted from the next DBZ game. I wanted Buu, GT, and SSJ4 Gogeta. I wanted big explosions. I wanted the Budokai(not Tenkaichi) fighting system. This game seems like a transition game. Worth a rent, I beat it over a weekend. I wouldn't buy it, not enough replayability. Positives - It did look pretty good, sound is in DTS
THis game was wonderful I loved almost everything thing about it. I had no problem with the game in particular, but i did have a problem with other aspects. The problem was that this game was a step backwards in a sense. the last dbz game had a massive arsenal of characters and its story mode ranged from dragon ball all the way to gt. burst limit, however, starts at radits and ends at cell. and that was one of the major issues i had. and also the drama sequences that are incorporated into game play can get a little annoying. but on the bright side the fighting mechanics are pretty fun to mess around with and online dragon ball z is finally here.
