    If you're a diehard, you'll relish playing through your favorite early battles in the epic story. Sagas is a competent first entry to the action genre, just not exemplary.
  2. The visuals are bright and colorful, the controls are simple, and overall, the game is just enough fun to spend a rainy weekend with.

    While the game does look great in still shots, when it's in motion, it never maintains a steady framerate throughout an entire scene.
  4. Certainly, there are better Dragon Ball games out there (see "DBZ: Budokai 3").
  5. Dragon Ball Z Sagas is completely broken.
  6. 40
    Even the most hardcore DBZ fans will feel ripped off if they purchase Dragon Ball Z: Sagas, and non-rabid fans will be angry to the point of violence.

    The story is lame, the gameplay is repetitive and the entire control system is compromised in one way or another. Let the developers fix their mistakes before you throw any money in their direction. Don't even rent this one.

    This review contains spoilers. I think this game is great. It shows off a new gameplay not yet seen in dbz games. The story sticks to the anime and the bosses are challenging. Having to finish off bosses quickly while transformed is a great example. It may seem frustrating but just because you cant hurt them doesn't mean you cant knock em around to keep them from attacking you. All that gave bad reviews to this game are entitled to their own opinions, but i think their thoughts are a bit misplaced. Anyways bottom line is that i loved this game when i played it with my friends and ,even with the 7th gen consoles, will probably end up buying it since I've only rented it lolz Collapse

    Great concept, but lacks control and the lack of payable characters is a major downside. A sequel needs to be made to show what this game is Great concept, but lacks control and the lack of payable characters is a major downside. A sequel needs to be made to show what this game is capable of. Add control and length and this game would be good for not just DBZ fans. All DBZ games have always fallen short of being a breakthrough success. Expand

    I was excited that DBZ went to Atari. I see now that it made no difference. The DBZ line of games is living off of it's anime rep. This I was excited that DBZ went to Atari.

As a beat em up style game, this game is quite broken,This game is a very interesting take on the Saiyan to android saga's of Dragon ball z. As a beat em up style game, this game is quite broken, and has alot of bugs and issues, but still can be very fun to dbz fans. i wouldnt reccomend this to gamers who arent dbz fans, but dbz fans will be able to appreciate this game for doing a good job of following the dbz story arch, as well as do a good job of capturing the feel of the dbz universe, with graphics and music, as well as sound effects and voice acting, that represent the series well. the game mechanics are broken, and if your not appreciating this game for being a dbz game, you might not appreciate it at all. this is really a game thats for the fans, and i reccomend it if your a dbz fan looking for something new.
