  1. DBZ: HD feels like the developers actually put some effort into its creation. It's fun, and — dare I say it — somewhat innovative.
  2. A surprisingly fun, easy to pick up and enjoyable to master card game that, while not as deep as most other card battlers, offers a good amount of strategy and a different approach to the genre.
  3. If you’re a Dragonball Z fan this comes recommended, as knowing the characters and understanding the plot will only add to what’s already a decent game. For the rest of us, it’s a fun card-based game that’s only let down by its lack of difficulty and length. Worth looking at.

    As a change of pace, Dragon Ball Z: Harukanaru Densetsu works reasonably well, though still manages to stumble on some of the typical card-game pitfalls.
  5. It's not bad, but it's not as innovative as I had originally hoped. Yes it is a DBZ game that takes a drastically different approach. But it uses the same old story that we've been hearing for the past ten years.
  6. 60
    It’s better than DBZ games used to be – back when nobody, fan or otherwise, could possibly stomach them – but Atari and Bandai still have a ways to go.
  7. Dragon Ball Z: Harukanaru Densetsu's attempt to do something different with card battling, while commendable, doesn't compensate for its shallow gameplay.
  8. An interesting concept is simplified too much for its own good. For hardcore fans or beginners only.
  9. The game play is far too simple, the stories are predictable, and the sum of all its parts never quite comes together to create a compelling portable game.
  10. Dragonball Z: Harukanaru Densetsu gets credit for trying to provide a more newbie-friendly card-battler, but it comes at the cost of the planning and complexity that makes the genre fun.

    It was great in the first few minutes, but all the cards felt powerful and, there was no strategy in it. Also there was not many stuff to do,It was great in the first few minutes, but all the cards felt powerful and, there was no strategy in it. Also there was not many stuff to do, just walking around waiting for some random battle momments. Full Review »

    I am an avid dragonball z fan but this game is nothing more than luck. Your charectors would be at least 5 levels above the enemy but unless I am an avid dragonball z fan but this game is nothing more than luck. Your charectors would be at least 5 levels above the enemy but unless the invisible deck gives you good cards, they can just slowly whittle your health to nothing. In short, i have every dbz game available in the usa, but i painfully regret paying 30 dollars for this suped up version of the card game "war". Full Review »
