  1. Not a bad fighting game. The game looks pretty nice with cool familiar backdrop levels and the characters look like the cartoon characters. It just seems clunky to play at times.
  2. 65
    It has its ups and downs, but the special moves look absolutely gorgeous and very much like they do in the cartoon series, and the in-flight fighting is an experience not to be missed on a hand-held.
  3. A poorly constructed fighting game that doesn't have the same fun and addicting aura that "Street Fighter" and "King of Fighters" has.
  4. 40
    Taiketsu's button-mashing gameplay is shallow and simplistic, even for a kid's fighting title.
  5. Taiketsu just doesn't work. With bad gameplay, graphics, sound, and multiplayer, it leaves this reviewer complaining more than Andy Rooney.
  6. There are better fighting games out there for GBA, even for hardcore fans of Dragon Ball Z. [Spring 2004, p.40]
  7. Virtually every aspect of this sorry excuse for a fighting game fails painfully. The problems start with unresponsive controls and poor animation. [Dec 2003, p.97]

    I love DBZ but this game sucks. They should have just ported the snes dbz classics. They are much better. This game doesnt even come close to I love DBZ but this game sucks. They should have just ported the snes dbz classics. They are much better. This game doesnt even come close to besting the other fighters on this system. And who their right mind thought it would look good pre-rendered? Sprites please. Expand
