Los elementos desbloqueables auguran una larga vida al título, y los gráficos cumplen a la perfección (esas manos, no obstante, dejan que desear). Si alguien duda si conseguirlo o no, que deje de hacerlo: invitad a unos amigos, y a competir con vuestro personaje favorito. Expand

    This game is surprisingly decent for a DBZ game on the Wii (Though Super DBZ was good too). It doesn't push the genre or anything, but for hardcore DBZ fans that don't mind learning the overly complex controls to do moves that are relatively simple on the other versions it is by far only worth buying on the Wii. I would almost suggest it to non DBZ fans.

    DBZBT2 for the Wii is by far the greatest game in the series, and the Budokai series has been nothing but fun from the beginning. Many of the professional reviewers wrote tomes about how the Wii controls were overly cumbersome and detracted from the game experience.

The Wii controls go a long way into pulling you into the fight if you allow yourself to get used to them and enjoy them. There's something magical about pulling back and kamehameha-ing your buddies in the face. If you Expand

    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.

    The best DBZ game to date, this entry shows how the franchise should have been done all along.

    Definitely the best DBZ game so far. There are so many characters to choose from it's overwhelming, but in a good way. The fighting, once you get into it, is great. There are many options and techniques to learn and they are all pretty easy to learn. Atari got it right on this one.

    Once you get past the initial learning curve, using the wii mote to do the actual fireballs and attacks in posture makes the game so visceral and satisfying, as you see your physical movements mimicked on screen. You ACTUALLY do a "kamekameha" fireball." Put the wii mote forward, hold two buttons, pull in, and then push out, and you unleash hell.

    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 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.

    Best DBZ ever. Once past the learning curve it is just like the anime. Fantastic Wii controls.

    The only other DBZ games that I've played multiple hours on were Dragonball GT Final Bout and Dragonball Z Ultimate Battle 22, both for the original Playstation. It's definitely better than any of those, and it has tons of characters, but I agree with "Gaming Age," you only have to play each character once and then the excitement is gone.

    The game is amazing. Without hyping the moves and combos that can be pulled off with the wii remote, this 3d anime fighter is easy to pick up if new to the wii, but it adds a depth that once mastered (still working to get there) can produce some fearsome combos and energy moves that the computer will still counter. easily the BEST fighter I have played to date. So much depth..... so little time.

    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]
  2. Nope, this 3D fighter forces you to wrap your head (and hands) around a shockingly deep control system utilizing nearly every button on the Wii-mote and Nunchuck. [Dec. 2006, p.118]
  3. After you wave the Wii remote and nunchuk to unleash Goku's Spirit Bomb attack, I guarantee you won't want to go back to hitting a simple button combination. [jan. 2007, p.112]
