Okay, well I beat this game in about 4 hours, and only had about 1 hour to go to finish everything. Let me say that this game had a lot of really great concepts and could have been a great addition to the DBZ games. But, it ends right after the Cell saga, and fails to include a couple characters that are from the time between the beginning of the show, and the end of the Cell saga. This also leaves out a fair amount of characters who only show up after the Cell saga. Some characters which are well-liked by fans of the show. And, for some strange reason decides to put in a character that is in a GT movie. Previous games have managed to incorporate all the characters in this one, and much more. One other thing about leaving things out, Teen Gohan doesn't even get the Father-Son kamemeha! Now, about the good parts of the game. Well, the battle system is pretty simple, and works fairly fluidly. None of the moves are too complicated to perform. Next, the graphics are done very well, and fighting is done in much the same way as the actual series. The voice acting gives you the choice of the original JP VA's, or the US VA's. Let me warn many VA purists out there, DBZ had GOOD US VA's, and not so good JP VA's. Goku sounds like a little girl in the Japanese VA. This is ADULT Goku we are talking about. Gohan sounds eerily similiar, and only starts to get a more mature sounding voice once he hits the teenage status. Many of the Japanese choices for voices follow the same pattern, and many characters sound annoying, but some are done really well. Plus, you won't get to hear Vegeta's '9000' speech either. One last thing, the game is still censored, and will not feature any of the more gruesome acts in the show. This game would have been a great deal better if they just let it go past the Cell Saga.
