Dragon Ball Z has admittedly lost some of its following in the wake of Naruto, Bleach, and Death Note. However, those still searching for the perfect Dragon Ball video game experience may find Burst Limit to be as close to our beloved anime as it gets.
The first thing you'll notice about Burst Limit is the gorgeous character models and fluid animation therein. This is the closest I've seen a Dragon Ball game get to emulating the show itself. My only qualm with the game is a lack of arenas in which to fight. The handful of stages and small character roster (Burst Limit (21) to Tenkaichi 3 (161)) is a bit disheartening to those who've played the Tenkaichi series, but the graphical detail present is really a sight to behold.
New to the series are 'Drama Pieces', triggered events that may actually alter the outcome of a battle by adding health, improving defense or attack, and even canceling an attack altogether. It adds a new element to battle that is most certainly a welcome experience to the story mode. Those wishing for a more pure fighting experience in versus mode may turn them off, but they are required in single player story.
Online versus works reasonably well but suffers from the same connectivity problems found with every other game offering a similar feature. Call of Duty 4, Grand Theft Auto 4, Burst Limit, and any other game relies upon your own internet connection, the opponent's internet connection, as well as the distance between the two. If both opponents have a good connection and are a relatively short distance away (same country, state, etc), prepare for a great experience.
Burst Limit is a great game for fans of the series, but a little harder to get into for new comers as the story mode doesn't explain a whole lot. The controls are easy to get used to, but difficult to master. It's a rewarding title for those willing to put in the effort.
well everyone says it wasnt that good it was the first 1 for ps3 trial run just like budikai was yea it lacks sum characters but overall i liked the game play and graphics its still stick to the same contols as the other ones i was happy with it a great game for you and a bunch of friends to play .
