Let me get the point across that I am a big DBZ fan who still watches the series today. (Dragon Ball z Kai). Having that said, i was ecstatic that a new game was coming out. I have played the game for a couple days now and I am greatly surprised about the game itself. Everything is great from presentation to game modes, but the combat system is HORRIBLE. It is simply too simple. You can not hit the opponent 3 times before activating a mini-game. Also, this mini-game is based on luck, a 50-50 chance. There is no skill involved. I was looking for a Raging Blast type game, and got a strategy, luck based game. I beg you to watch some game play videos to see if it is your type of game, because i know it is not mine. I guess i have to wait until next year...

The only thing this game has going for it is the graphics and being able to follow the story. Other then that it's trash. Here's how every fight scene goes. Hit X three times and then after hit X or Y. Then sit there for 20-30 seconds watching your character beat up the other. Rinse and repeat that step 5+ times to win. This game has no combo system. It's a coin flip combat system. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, including even the most hardcore DBZ fans.

Let me just put it out there that I grew up with dragon ball/dbz when i was growing up as a kid. I loved alot of the games that came out revolving around this title. Then they started to slip, and this game is when their face met the pavement.
The old playstation dbz game is better than this garbage.
Don't get it twisted, the graphics and environment are outstanding in every way. But the fighting system is where it went downhill badly.
Mashing buttons does not make for a fun game. Hit one button and you do 20 different moves? Really? Some one must have really been high enough to think that "hey lets have the players hit the "X" button and the computer will do the rest."
I was so pumped for this game to get to my house only to be let down by a horribly thrown together fighting experience.
For all the hardcore dbz fans out there that are used to the budokai system, stay as far away as possible from this game. Biggest let down I think to date besides the newer"" turok game that came out for the 360 (for all those who remember how epic it was for N64).
I didn't give this game a 1 only because of the graphics and environment.
Final thoughts.....its junk. Pure utter gamer garbage. Very depressing they even thought this would be a great game to make.
