  1. Too much Ball Z and not enough brawl. If you know what we're Saiyan. [Aug 2008, p.85]

    i think that burst limit is a good game. not the best but not the worst. the speed in combat is so fast and fun to pull off. it is so easy to get into. and finally it feels like playing out the show Full Review »

    This game is... okay. It has it's strong points such as it's gorgeous visuals (and it's still the best looking DBZ game ever released to me!) and great soundtrack, but to me, the gameplay feels much more slow and clunky compared to Dimps last DBZ game Budokai 3. And this game does not have aas much to offer, for example, Budokai 3 went through every DBZ saga and also covered a bit of DBGT (Which to me is not a good thing!) and had a pretty big character roster. This game only goes up to the end of the Cell saga and has a much smaller character roster.

    Overall it's okay, it can be fun at times but it does not compare to Budokai 3.

The lack of characters combined with the relative lack of gameplay modes makes the overall package seem a bit shallow, as if the inevitable sequel will feature more content. Even so, Burst Limit is a quality fighting game. Non-fans will be lost within the convoluted confines of the Z Chronicles, but the improved battle engine can't be denied. Full Review »
