    There are a lot of reasons for rating this game a 0. Poor melee system with only one combo per character, few usable specials with some characters only capable of healing (which with such a weak combo system makes them very boring to play), a KI system that FORCES you to melee to charge your bar because there is no charge button, and no transformations. Most of these things are forgivable alone and should at least make this game a 5 or 6, but with all of this combined together makes a game that is not only worse then all of its previous iterations, but makes this game incredibly boring. If you really want a DBZ fighting game, go get one of the older masterpieces.

    It is a shame people keep rating this game higher then it deserves just because its a Vita game. Rate it how it plays and is worth, which is this game is not a very good game, and that's ignoring its DBZ nature.

    Enjoyed the game but it is not as good as budokai tenkaichi on ps2 the characters are great the graphics are nice but the Game's AI is extremely poor there are no character specific combos neither a combo list,your allies(if you playing on single player of course) are the dumbest thing i've ever seen.If you get killed the odds of your allie stand there in front of you and don't save you is amazing.The enemy isn't smart he doesn't do badass combos they just appeal to power boosts and spamming skills and ultimates on you.It could have been better.

    Worst game ever, piece of **** ai that **** sucks at doing it's job. This game has worthless AI that ONLY targets you and if you EVER manages to do anything your teammates will suck anyways 0/10 worthless game get something else than this. It's not worth the money.

    now you would think that the ps vita version of dbz would be more impressive on a handheld due to it's simplicity. unfortunately the game suffers from TONS of performance issues and the multiplayer (the best part of the game) is unplayable with the fps dropping down to about 5.

    With a shallow combat system and boring mission structure and unbalanced online function, Battle of Z is not for the faint of heart and can easily be skipped, but if you REALLY want to play a Dragon Ball Z game you could do a lot worse.

    Fun though that may be, it won't take long until you're craving more, and unless you're a hardcore fan, Battle of Z doesn't have that to offer.

    Battle of Z is not the best DBZ's videogame, but fans should enjoy it in PSVita.
