  1. It is not as deep as a normal RPG, but its still a pretty good game.
  2. Great action-RPG elements and beautiful graphics will keep you glued to the screen from start to finish.

    Although casual DBZ fans may not understand all of the story references, they will enjoy the great gameplay and the chance to battle Buu's Fury players. [Nov 2004, p.132]

    For anyone looking for an adventure that offers up a little more than a few easy tasks peppered with incredibly easy brawler combat across about a dozen hours of gameplay, Buu's Fury definitely lacks.
  5. The small problems that have been apparent throughout the series are still intact, along with a couple of new quirks that make the game overly easy. Even so, Buu's Fury is still a decent game for Dragon Ball Z fans.

    The graphics and sounds don't help too much in keeping the excitement going - you may have to make up for it with a bit of imagination. [Nov 2004, p.130]
  7. What ends up happening is that you'll just punch and kick your way through the game. Sure, you'll change characters and gain access to new special moves, but it's still the same thing over and over. Punch, kick, block. Rinse, lather, repeat.
