  1. A good, solid foundation was laid to make this a good portable fighter, but there wasn’t enough to back it up.

    While the game faithfully translates Akira Toriyama's DBZ world onto the DS, the game stumbles in a few areas. Across the entire character roster, basic attacks from fighter to fighter are basically all the same. Meanwhile, the AI alternates between two wildly different moods--really dumb, or really cheap.
  3. The lack of variety within game modes, annoying music and repetitious combat left me with the same feeling I had after playing through the original.

    As much as I'm a fan of the DBZ series, if I was to choose between this title and a King of Fighters title for the GBA, I'd choose the latter without batting an eye.
  5. A deluxe version of the GBA title and not a heck of a lot more.
  6. Love Dragon Ball Z and you’ll like the game.
  7. Though still providing some fun, fast-paced fighting action, Supersonic Warriors 2 lacks some of the care of its predecessor and feels like a somewhat slapdash GBA-to-DS conversion.

    It suffers from an overly simplistic fighting engine, weak animation and a story mode that skims past major plot points with all the bluster of 10th grade chemistry class. [Jan 2006, p.114]

    One of the best games i've played for DS, I would give it a 10 if it wasn't so easy to clear everything.

    It is overall a pretty fun game. The score suffers though from the fact it feels like there were too few improvements compared to the GBAIt is overall a pretty fun game. The score suffers though from the fact it feels like there were too few improvements compared to the GBA version, and because of it's severe balancing issues. Full Review »
