Goku's son has been kidnapped and it's up to you to save him. Vegeta, Krillin, Piccolo, and King Kai are some of the characters you'll encounter along your quest. You'll need your melee and ki combat strategies to defeat your enemies. The future depends on your ability to use your ki blasts, solar flare, and kamehameha attacks. Expand

  1. This title's adherence to both the substance and sytle of the show are what kept me playing it - and I'm not even a fan. [May 2002, p.88]
  2. It’s like that delicious piece of cake you receive at a party; scrumptious but anything but filling. Such is this, short indeed but an enjoyable experience while it lasts.
  3. I was frustrated by its slow, aggravating gameplay, but I still enjoyed it enough to keep playing and I hated to see it end.
  4. Battling enemies is both frustrating and boring thanks to touchy hit detection and extremely repetitive fights. [June 2002, p.122]
  5. Short, easy, and lacking in imagination.
  6. It's fairly basic RPG gaming, but it's got the fine details that'll please fans of the show. [May 2002, p.142]
  7. A sucky game. There's no two ways around it. The graphics are mediocre, the gameplay is utter crap, sound and music are redundant and forgettable, and don't even get me started on the story.

    I love DBZ, i played most of their games and beat them all. But,tho, this is a crap, the difficulty is freaking hard, and especially when it limits you many stuff, you baely can even fly, making it even more harder to escape when you're in bad conditions. Also, the enemies are like bosses, you need to cross your fingers to kill the dam-- monster. And right in the beginning in the walk-throughout , there some snake, that arent visible to the human aye, at least in the sequels they improved a lot. It's just the beginning folks. Expand

    DBZ is the first anime I ever watched, goku is the default idea for a hero in any anime and the idea of him been in his own game was really cool. I played this game a lot when I was eleven and it was not great, in fact it was not fun at all. I recently played that game and the first thing I noticed was that my health goes away way to fast. Goku is just to weak and dies really easily, the story is told right and that's the best part of the game. Everything else is garbage to be honest, the enemies are pretty horrible and most are just animals. Goku can learn other powers but again the whole rpg part of this game is really broken, I give this game a four out of ten because of the fact that its just a chore to play this game. I do like the story but all the actual game play is just not worth the time. Expand
