    Played the demo and was surprised its a really good game. I grew up watching DBZ so this feels like im watching/playing the show. Can't wait for it to come out.

    Very nice looking game. Very fun. However i fail to understand why they did not continue with the "Budokai Tenkachi" style. I much prefer the full 3D version to the side scrolling "Street Fighter" like style. Im a little gutted that the xbox 360 version is nowhere as good as the PS2 version.. i mean next generation consoles.. cmon.

    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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game serves the cake well as a balanced fighter and truly captures the enthusiasm of the show; however, its lack of content makes the whole experience a tad bit superficial. Expand

    It's nice to play a game that manages to be fun for the hardcore and casual alike. [Summer 2008, p.48]
  2. This is the best and best looking Dragon Ball Z game that has been made. Every fan should buy this game.

    Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit managed to really impress me. It's not perfect but it's a fast, over-the-top fighter that's an absolute blast. The single-player Z Chronicles mode is perfect for hardcore fans and the multiplayer options are good enough that you'll want to call your friends over for a few matches.
