    I bought a Kinect for this as my son is an avid Dragon Ball Z fan. We're not actaully going to be able to eat now for a week - but hell it's worth it. If this isn't the future then I'm a hungry disillusioned idiot. Oh ****

    I actually love this game, even though a lot of people don't like it. I gotta excited when i played a Super Saiyan Bardock. IT WAS AWESOME!!"IMO, this is a really fun game to play.

    Awful game! The only good on Dragon Ball Z for Kinect are the graphics and the story mode. But the rest is a disaster, the Kinect answer is terrible, the gameplay is really weird and all the game is very boring. Dragon Ball Z for Kinect can sounds like a good idea, but when you play the final ressult, you can have a big deception.

    How to successfully destroy a game? One word.... Kinect! Let's be serious Kinect doesn't have many good or even games so I smell a disaster in gaming world when any games created for Kinect comes out. Also design is bad, gameplay is dull and it makes Microsoft kicks another franchise into nuts and totally destroy it with a crappy game. 1/10

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Some games are at their best when they don't exist. The idea of a controller free dragon ball z game is way ahead of its time. We dont have the technology to 100% implement free movement. Expand

    The game is bad, is not pessimo sickens fast gameplay, the graphics are good, just good enough this game irritated me think Kinect somewhat spoils the game, the better until the time was Harry Potter for Kinect.

    No..................Just.................No... The kinect cannot handle something as ambitious as this. The developer of the game (Spike) should have known this.

    If you weren't a fan of dragon ball z transitioning from 2d fighting style to 3d fighting style (which a large amount of fans disliked including myself) then you will HATE this game. The fact that the gameplay got worse to where it puts me to sleep doesn't help its case. The kinect ruins yet another franchise that was originally good. Not worth the retail price. The only thing that saves this game from getting a 0/10 is the slight improvement of graphics. DON'T BUY THIS GAME!!!! I cannot stress that enough. Expand

    1) BAD Kinect gesturing. It's ridiculously hard to get your moves right and you just end up doing the same thing over and over again. There are great Kinect games but this is just not one of them. The main menu isn't the easiest to make work either. 2) However just like Dragonball Z it is HILARIOUSLY bad. I laugh hilariously when watching other people play it in my house. This is going to be a GREAT drunk night game. Expand

    Step 1: Get the Dragonball z cartoon network music from amazing mp3, and play it on xbox 360. Step 2: Use the game purely as a fun way to workout, and build cardio Step 3: Enjoy the game......Stop trying to enjoy the game for what it's not, and enjoy it for what it is. Lets face it, all motion detection games are basically a beta.....its not really meant for hardcore gaming, that being said..Get a kinect for the pure purspse of losing weight....obesity is an epidemic in america...get off your butt... and get a sweat...saiyan style ....with cartoon network music in background.....

    As someone who loves the dragon Ball z franchise I was really hyped for this game but the moment I started this game, I realized that the kinect ruins almost every single way.I have no idea how they thought that the kinect could do anything good for us.The combat sucks, the 2 player mode sucks, the single-player sucks, the only thing that works is the story which is by the way average. Do not **** MY BELOVED FRANCISES KINECT!!!!!!!!!! Expand

    Same as ultimate disappointment, but with everything on an even worser level, and with awful kinect controls.
    Yet another cancer giving and gaming industry kiling game.

    Far from being a knockout. [March 2013, p.87]

    The bottom line is that if you are a Dragon Ball Z fan, this is probably going to be a good value for you to play through all the characters, watch the movie, and try to get the additional QR codes for added fun. If you're looking for a good fighting game on Kinect, this one might leaving you feeling a little defeated.

    The control system completely alters the game. This might disappoint fans, but we prefer it. [Issue#92, p.86]
