  1. A Dragon Ball Z fan’s dream come true. The game boasts a incredibly large roster of fighters hearkening from every obscure movie and saga in the series.
  2. An epic anime beat-em-up unlike anything else currently on the market. Although the controls are slightly tricky at first, this is a game with so much depth and character that I can't help but recommend it to everyone.
  3. This should be the template for translating fighting games to the Wii, while it is modeled around DBZ's strange combat with a few tweaks, there is a lot of potential.

    The game provides an astonishing amount of playability, unique player interface, and covers nearly all of the 20 odd years of the Dragon Ball Saga. This game is a definite buy for both Wii gamers and DBZ fans alike. [Dec. 2006, p.113]

    What do you mean complicated? this game is not that complicated at all! the only move that is hard is the kamama! this is a great game! this is good for both DBZ fans and none. this trully is a great game for the WII. but it comes short because it does get boring after you beat it. but hey it was worth the $40 price for it. And one more thing I have heard more anoying charater voices in the menu then this game. like Narto for the WII talk about anoying! Full Review »

    This game was a lot of fun while it lasted - and that was when I unlocked all the characters. It's a shame as this game lacks a "pick-up-and-play" style that allows for multiplayer to extend it's lifespan. Still, performing a Kamehameha is never going to be any more than it is in this game.

    Great game for dbz-fans, but only for them. others will complain about annoying voice-acting in the menus, unbalanced characters and gameplay, and poor graphics of the environment. nevertheless it's just a great feeling to beat the enemy so hard that he flies into the next building.
