    This game in my opinion is underestimated. dbz fans out there: dont feel that turned off by other reviews. maybe flight is restricted and it lacks attack melee and specials, but you can combine all what the game provides you and i PROMISE it will give an interesting outcome,just teleport ,combo,upercut, perform a teleport combo or special, think of new ideas and double teams for co-op,sendThis game in my opinion is underestimated. dbz fans out there: dont feel that turned off by other reviews. maybe flight is restricted and it lacks attack melee and specials, but you can combine all what the game provides you and i PROMISE it will give an interesting outcome,just teleport ,combo,upercut, perform a teleport combo or special, think of new ideas and double teams for co-op,send enemies flyin through rocks and backgrounds, just be creative and make your own rules. and those who judge the replay value by what they have to achieve next dont have to be right. i play through the levels several times just for fun and more ideas, just like when i replay sd vs raw. so just rent it and try giving it a chance.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I think this game is great. It shows off a new gameplay not yet seen in dbz games. The story sticks to the anime and the bosses are challenging. Having to finish off bosses quickly while transformed is a great example. It may seem frustrating but just because you cant hurt them doesn't mean you cant knock em around to keep them from attacking you. All that gave bad reviews to this game are entitled to their own opinions, but i think their thoughts are a bit misplaced. Anyways bottom line is that i loved this game when i played it with my friends and ,even with the 7th gen consoles, will probably end up buying it since I've only rented it lolz Expand

    This is what I wish more anime games were anime based games were like, fun simple brawlers, it has great co op, and good controls, and is a lot of fun, my only complaint is that some boss fight are annoying because you have to change to a Super Sayain, and it's a pain to do, that aside this is a great purchase for fans.

    Even the most hardcore DBZ fans will feel ripped off if they purchase Dragon Ball Z: Sagas, and non-rabid fans will be angry to the point of violence.
