  • 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. Expand

  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]

    The game might have the same battle system as the first LOG but the Graphics and Gameplay are much better and cooler. This game looks awsome and shouldn't be an upset. Expand

    This game is still a ton of fun to play after you have beaten it. This time there's a combo system that's better than the first LOG. it's most likely that dbz fans will like this the most. Expand

    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

    Just is not that good. it is way to easy to beat and is very short. I am really dissaponted with this one when the 1st one was so good. graphics are a little more better, but the Ai in this game is so bad so yes it is easy. just save your self some money and get number one if you did not have it yet or did not play it or buy supersonic.
