    In my opinion this DBZ stuff is just getting older and older and since the only real new thing in this game, the Wii control style, sadly is a bit too complicated for casual gamers, this game will most likely leave you alone in front of your TV and doesn't earn an overall 10 for sure. 5/10 from me to bring the balance back in here.

    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.

    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]

    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]

    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]
