Excerpt: Dragonball Z: A Japanese Anime that has been off the air for years, releases yet another fighting game. Everyone used to watch this show when they were younger, thirsting for violence and mediocre animation. Does this latest incarnation of the Dragonball universe stay true to the story? If you’re a fan of the series, stay tuned.
Excerpt: To its fans Dragonball Z makes perfect sense. It's classic Japanese anime, with bonkers fighting scenes, spiky haired warriors and earth shattering super powers. To everyone else it's just a bit mental. Question is, has Osaka-based development studio Dimps done enough to propel Dragonball Z Burst Limit, the manga's first 'next-gen' video game, through the fan service stratosphere and into the realm of the serious fighter? The answer is, rather disappointingly, no.
Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit feels like an amalgamation of the various other Dragon Ball Z fighters that have come out, and they are definitely taking a lot from the license's long-lasting Budokai and Budokai Tenkaichi series. The game's graphical style just screams next-gen as it is the first DBZ title to make it to the new platforms (if you don't count Budokai Tenckaichi 2 and 3 for the Wii, which were little more than ports).
Summary: Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit sends the series flying into the future with a high-energy flourish. The game boasts graphics and visual effects only possible on the advanced next-gen hardware, while the online gameplay adds a much sought after dimension.
Summary: Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit is a game made for fans of the show only. If you don’t like DBZ already, this game will do nothing to turn you into a fan. The gameplay is boring, and in my opinion a glorified button masher. The online mode doesn’t work, and the single player is nothing but a nostalgia trip. If you like the show then by all means go and pick up Burst Limit. But for everyone else, don’t go any further than a rental.
Summary: Who knew that a Dragon Ball Z game could be this much fun? Burst Limit does nearly everything right, even if it does limit the amount of players you can use. Marred only by some technical imperfections, this Dragon Ball Z game is fun for fans of the franchise and those who have never watched an anime in their life. It's not perfect, but Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit is worth checking out if you're into good looking fighting games!
Excerpt: Dragonball Z: Burst Limit brings frantic, fast paced action to our plates in this latest fighter in a long line of DBZ games. The game play can most accurately be compared to that of the Shin Budokai games for PSP, however there are some differences. Instead of having the Aura Burst that the Shin Budokai series is known for, Burst Limit adds the Aura Spark ability, which allows you to activate new moves instead of just powering up your old ones.
