ok so i sent this game back cuz it didnt work and was waiting for my next one and they sent it to me again so ill tell you somethin this one skips like all the good battles like in dragon ball z budakai and tengaechi and the budikay tenguyechi and the battle sytem used in this one suports less playable charachters the any of the first ones the fighting mechanic is so flawed as well you have to dash to get close to youre openant and the moves arent over the top at all there actualy vary tame and limiting even one cool thing is the custimezable charachters but only some are worth it in a nutshell dont bother with this one its 17.99 for a reason they destroyed this game .
I was a huge fan of the DBZ series, the Budokai series, and the Tenkaichi series, but even though this was Budokai it sucked!! It sucked so bad I didn't keep it for a week. The mini-games were fun albeit easy, but some battles were so tough I had trouble on very easy.(I'm a decent Budokai player) This was a huge letdown. I almost stopped liking DBZ it sucked so bad. The only way to like DBZ after this game is to play DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 3. 3 out of 10
Dragon Ball Z Infinite World is almost exactly the same as other DBZ games, when looking at gameplay. Capsules are bought at a shop, and each capsule has either a skill, or something like that. You can still create custom characters with your capsules. The "story" mode is Dragon Mission. In Dragon Mission, you have a little Goku avatar on a map. You go though each saga (Saiyan, Frieza, Android, Majin Buu, GT, and Other) in Dragon Mission and fight key saga characters along the way. One new aspect added to Dragon Ball Z Infinite World is the little mini-games thoughout each saga; Sometimes you have to go through rings in a certain time, sometimes you have to "train" by punching in buttons in a sideways guitar-hero way. Gameplay, overall, does not differ much from the other Dragon Ball Z games out there.
There really isn't much to say about the sounds and music in Dragon Ball Z Infinite World, as you really do not notice them. I guess one thing I could say is the attack sounds are fabulous. For example, when using a Kamehameha, it really does SOUND like you actually are using a Kamehameha.
The visuals in Dragon Ball Z Infinite World is not different at all from every other DBZ game. As usual: Super Saiyan hair is still spiky and gold, attack visuals still remain very good, and cutscenes are often cel-shaded. There really is nothing else to say.
You will need some time to get used to the controls in this game. Even if you have played other DBZ games, I still suggest practicing before rushing into Dragon Mission mode. Many attacks are still the same: square for punch, triangle for kick, X for guard, and circle for chi. Special attacks such as Kamehameha's are very easy to use once you get a hang of the regular controls.
