  1. A totally accessible fighter. Almost anyone can get the hang of it in a few minutes, but that doesn't mean it's easy.

    With the addition of jumping or ducking abilities, an improved movement system, or the ability to fly independently outside of the launch attack, DBZ could definitely have potential to break through its already enormous demographic and become something even bigger.
  3. The main thing that it has going for it is that it recreates its franchise so faithfully that you feel as if you're completely in control of its world.

    Really disappointing. I used to be obsessed with Dragon Ball Z and I was so exited when I rented this game. I expected a great fighting game Really disappointing. I used to be obsessed with Dragon Ball Z and I was so exited when I rented this game. I expected a great fighting game with endless fun, but it was anything but that! It's boring and the controls are really confusing. Stay away from this one, everybody... Full Review »

    It'ss kind of boring but the only part that is boring is doing dragon world over and over for breakthroughs.

    Dreadful game with completely unresponsive controls. A crime.
