  • Summary: Just when the Z Fighters thought the struggle against evil was over, a new evil approaches. In the next episode in the Z Fighters' quest to rid the universe of evil, you'll take on the role of Trunks, Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, or Vegeta as they journey through the Cell Saga and prepare to battle with the mighty Cell himself. With five playable characters, hours of gameplay, and massive game maps to explore, it's a DBZ adventure of epic proportions. Collapse

  1. A vast improvement over the first game. The game is much sharper in the gameplay and in graphics, and is a much more enjoyable experience all around.
  2. A nice RPG for the GBA that even gamers who aren’t too familiar with the series will enjoy. If you’re already a fan, all the better.
  3. The graphics are bright and colorful, the gameplay is simple but addictive, and the quest is long and full of things to do.
  4. The game's primary goal is to distill roughly 38 hours of TV episodes into 15 or 20 hours of hands-on gameplay, and it succeeds at doing so.
  5. A slightly above-average game with unrealized potential. [July 2003, p.122]
  6. Though the action portions could still use some tweaking, Legacy of Goku II is a better effort all around that is bolstered by colorful graphics and catchy music taken straight from the TV show. DBZ fans can buy this with confidence. [Fall 2003, p.45]
  7. The overarching plot is fittingly epic and the graphics are fine, but plebian puzzles and problem-fraught combat guarantee frustration in this humdrum quest. [July 2003, p.123]

    By far the best game in the Legacy of goku series, this is a fantastic action rpg, with a satisfying level up system, really good representiation of the story, good graphics and music, and the game has an overall great immersion to the Dragon Ball Z universe. great inclusion of multiple playable characters, and lots of unique techniques and moves, this top down action rpg is one of the best handheld dragon ball z games, and is a great way to play through the most intense story arch in all of dragon ball.

    If you're looking for 2D open world action adventure games then The Legacy Of Goku 2 & 3 (Buu's Fury) are excellent choices. I would love a console remake of this series, sort of like Sleeping Dogs meets Xenoblade Chronicles meets Mass Effect 2. Expand
