Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans
Video Game Generation
26 February 2011
Summary: Overall, I found
Attack of the Saiyans
to be a short but admirable attempt at bringing structure and story-driven action to the series in its video game adaptations. It can become frustratingly difficult, but it’s hard not to resist the charms of the adorable little sprites and looks into the heads...
Pros: Great-looking sprites and character portraits., Interesting storyline pulled right from the series., Solid turn-based combat., No overuse of the DS stylus/touch screen.
Cons: Can be frustratingly difficult., Few save points., No English voice cast for dub fans.

Review: Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans (Nintendo DS)

Summary: For a licensed title, Attack of the Saiyans is pretty darn good. More to the point, it is a decent little RPG. The presentation is fantastic and the gameplay is solid. While it might not appeal to more hardened players because of its ease, it is a decent buy especially for fans and younger gamers.
Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans (DS) - Review
3 February 2010
Excerpt: That’s right folks, the first full fledged Dragon Ball Z RPG has arrived. Many fans of the series and its games, myself included, have longed for the series to get a proper RPG, rather than the 'adequate' action-RPGs on the GBA.
Conclusion: Saiyans. With the RPG gurus at Monolith Soft behind the helm, does this latest expansion into the DBZ universe reach scouter-breaking levels of excitement, or does it barely register a blip on the gaming radar? Just be thankful I didn’t make an “Over 9000” joke.
Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z. It's spawned a lot of games – and I mean a LOT. A good 90% of the games spawned from the popular anime and manga series are fighters, but the rarest gems of all are RPGs. Previous iterations of Dragon Ball Z RPGs, including the GBA entries, most certainly underwhelmed.
Conclusion: I felt this was the best attempt for a Dragonball Z role-playing game so far, but I also feel that this game would only attract fans of the series and fans of role-playing games. The game is fast paced and exploration is significantly linear.
Conclusion: The point is, Attack of the Saiyans is not necessarily just for hardcore DBZ fans. If you're into Japanese RPGs, and if you don't mind a slow, tedious beginning (and seriously, the first ninety minutes are very weak), then Attack of the Saiyans can be an extremely charming, loud, and violent fairy...
Conclusion: Straying from the mold, Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans is a solid adaptation of the high flying, explosive action for the RPG genre. While it's not a perfect game by any means, it's quite possibly the best Dragon Ball Z game to date.
