Excerpt: For some reason the Dragon Ball story has proved resistant to quality RPG adaptation despite it involving a collection of fighters who must continually become stronger to fight evil. The original The Legacy of Goku managed to botch the job at just about every level, yet Webfoot Technologies was granted the reins of its sequel anyway.
Excerpt: I wasn't expecting much from Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku , but I knew that as a onetime Dragon Ball fanatic sampling the thing would have to happen one day. This was one of the early Western-developed games in the vast pantheon of the license, and reputedly Webfoot Technologies got better with practice. It had nowhere to go but up after this insulting flotsam hit the market, that's for sure.
Excerpt: Dragonball Z is a repetitious, wretched, regressive, irredeemably rotten bit of anime. Most anime fanatics are aware of this fact and outgrow the sophomoric attraction exuded by this unfortunate program; the rest take up residence in their mother's basements and imagine what a wonderful world it would be if only a lucrative market for DBZ fanfiction existed.
Excerpt: Call it the whim of a silly girl. Who else would waste eight hours of her life trying to disprove the legacy (no pun intended) of bad DBZ games when ten minutes is more than enough to prove that this game redefines bad? Who else would struggle through this horrible, disgusting, wretched, evil excuse of a game searching for a single redeeming feature?
Pros: A couple nice clips from the show, The music when you first reach Namek is beautiful
Cons: The story is an offense, Gameplay is horrible, Graphics are subpar, Did I mention the story sucked?
Excerpt: It’s a Game Boy Advance game. Dragon Ball Z: Legacy of Goku is based on
the highly popular Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama (and
others at Bird Studio). It is a rare find in the catalog of Dragon Ball
games - an adventure game. Throughout the franchise’s life, most of the
games that are based on it are fighting games. In Legacy of Goku, you
play as Goku exclusively, and only see what is happening from Goku’s
point of view.
Excerpt: DBZ: The Legacy of Goku next to Budokai and not counting the extremely hard to find “Legendary Super Warriors”, is probably the best DBZ title out so far. It’s unarguably the best DBZ RPG, and that’s all we’re really concerned with. Not that is has a lot of competition, but it makes it sound decent… for now. Starting at the very, and I mean VERY beginning of the entire DragonBall Z series, and ending with the death of Freiza, this is an overall pretty bland title.
