I can't believe this game was developed by High Moon Studios. Two levels in I stopped the game, went back to the Xbox Dashboard and reloaded to make sure I'd seen what I thought I saw. Yes, it was made by the same people who made Darkwatch
. What did I learn? That while a development studio's previous work can usually be a good predictor of their performance in the future, just because some developers turned out a terrible game doesn't mean that they won't turn around and make a fantastic one the next time out.

Glowing people hovering in mid air, screaming about power levels. In a very real sense, that's all every episode of Dragon Ball Z
was about. Sure, every now and then, the characters would take a break from all the bellowing to get into world-shattering martial arts battles, but for the most part, fans came for the awkward dialog and broad characterizations. It's Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit's
ultimate triumph that at long last, fifteen years into making fighting games based on the franchise, a developer has finally grasped the thing that makes Dragon Ball Z
wonderful, and implemented it.

Game Description: Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit is the first game of the Dragon Ball Z series to hit the next generation consoles. It features the detailed graphics and dramatic, seamless battles expected from a next-generation console. During each battle, you will find conditions that create new dramatic scenes with characters and movement reminiscent of the original animation. After the battles, watch a unique story unfold each time you play. There is also a stronger element of offense and defense, due to added energy saving and fighting techniques. Use of special skills will no longer drain energy. The lower your energy, the stronger you get, making for a possible turnaround of the battle.

I’ll admit that I’m not especially familiar with the history of the Need for Speed
franchise. My first experience with the series was with 2006’s NFS Most Wanted,
an average arcade-inspired racing game with a single standout feature: Amazing police chases. The follow-up, NFS Carbon,
added a couple of new modes: the mildly diverting "drift" and the frustrating "canyon chase". The police chases were back, but hamstrung by the fact that the city map was so labyrinthine in its construction that it was nearly impossible to get a good chase going.
Game Description: Need for Speed: Pro Street is a racing experience like no other. For the first time, you're designing and building a car, competing in iconic locations from around the globe and battling in four distinct racing styles- grip, drag, drift and the all-new speed challenge. The atmosphere is electric—complete with energetic crowds, photo-realistic vehicles and billowing smoke—all designed to embody the pressure and intensity of the gladiatorial challenge known as Show Down. Need for Speed ProStreet is the realization of the power, aggression and rivalry that embodies street racing culture.

It's as sure as death or taxes that anyone who takes up videogaming will find themselves rooting through a bargain bin or scouring pre-owned shelves sooner or later. For those that do, few things feel as satisfying as saving hard-earned cash and getting a gem of a game at the same time.
