And I've played some bad ones. This stupid game is a mishmash of fights that take 85 years to complete (rough estimate), are entirely repetive, and essentially consist of dueling terrible mini-games. The barest minimum of skill is required, and the length of the battles makes the tedium of going through the story mode to unlock things pure torture.
Battles are slow to boot, and especially terrible when in 'Melee Range'. When in Melee Range there is no dash, making approaching each other an awkward affair, like to middle school kids at the dance that like each other. The kind of dynamic defense present in other DBZ games is reduced to either holding B, or sidestepping.
This game is a bad game, and you'd be better off looking at Burst Limit, or finding the old really good SNES game that never made it to America in any official capacity. This game makes an alright coaster, if you happen to find a copy on the street.
this game is very overrated i wanted to give it a 3 or 4 for creativity but the gameplay sucked and the hero mode was alright but the story sucked and it skipped lots of scenes and transformations. where was adult gohan in all his saiyan forms where was piccolo with his fuse with kami stage where was the homie pikkon. where was super saiyan 4 goku and vegeta and vegeta's super saiyan 2 form. where was pan where was goten and trunks. where was uub etc where were all the fighters that were in tenkaichi 3. id rather play the story mode of budokai 1 because the story actually had meaning and was made with passion where as this was good up until you leave the frieza saga. i got to the android and cell saga and there were a couple loose ends. i get to the world tournament majin buu saga and I didn't want to finish because they skipped so many key scenes from the cartoon. but yup this game trash hopefully they bring back another burst limit or raging blast because i was not bout to drop 60 like i did for burst limit and raging blasts. DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE VIEWERS THIS GAME IS FAILED CREATIVITY WITH RUN TO THE CORNER GAMEPLAY AND MASHING OF BUTTONS
