  1. If it weren’t for the engaging story that Dragonball Z tells (and is faithfully reproduced here), I would have chucked this game after the first ten minutes.
  2. This game is an insult to both DBZ fans and gamers. The gameplay design is so sloppy and poor that it doesn’t deserve the DBZ name.
  3. A bad game. In fact, it may well be the worst game of the year 2002. About the only redeeming quality it possesses is that it can be finished in well under five hours, making it so that the torture of playing the game itself is relatively short-lived.
  4. 20
    Even at a scant five hours, it's hard to believe that playing this game will be a worthwhile experience for any gamers, no matter how fond they are of the series.
  5. 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.

    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 reallyDBZ 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. Full Review »

    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 itI 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. Full Review »
