Yell, punch, yell, fly, yell, yell, repeat
HIGH Each match looks like a scene straight from the anime
LOW Simplistic play, unreliable controls, and inconsistent checkpoints make matches feel unfair
WTF Local multiplayer and matches against the AI are hidden in a remote corner of the story mode

The Crowded Budokai
HIGH All 4 Freizas vs All 4 Cells. Finally.
LOW Getting punched out of my Spirit Bomb for the eighth time in a row.
WTF Saibamen? They're a joke enemy, right? Wait, why are there fifty of them?

Still Shamelessly Crushing on Future Trunks
HIGH Seeing all of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai's story mode in bright, shiny HD; Reversible cover art!
LOW Seeing Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3's boring story mode in flat, static HD; Cheap AI.
WTF The AI abuses the crap out of the fact that combat starts when "FIGHT" appears, not when it fades like most other fighters—cheap first hits for everyone!

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.
Game Description: The time has come to go beyond the Dragon Ball Z sagas and experience the full force of the most powerful fighters in the universe. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 will challenge players like no other Dragon Ball Z game before. Begin with an all-new single player Dragon World that opens the story to new match-ups, surprising character appearances, and missions that will amaze. You can also battle your friends in multiplayer VS. And Tournament modes. If your will and skill prevail, you will come face-to-face with Buu, the most lethal of all Dragon Ball Z villains. Do you have what it takes not only to survive, but also to dominate.

Fighting games are a bit of a strange contradiction, because they really seem like they should be the most accessible genre. After all, just jumping into a single fight is the epitome of the casual gaming experience. Of course, since most fighting games have incredibly steep learning curves, this doesn't work quite the way it should.

Based on Akira Toriyama's insanely popular anime series, DBZ is an awful game that exists solely to make money off fans of the anime. Just how bad is it? It's so bad that my girlfriend's ten-year-old son, a huge Dragon Ball Z fan, spent 15 minutes playing it before putting it down in frustration. Fortunately for him, he didn't have to play through the whole game and write a review...
