Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi
17 February 2012
Summary: Dragon Ball Z games are a dime a dozen. The TV series may have ended 15 years ago, but that hasn't stopped developers and publishers from trying to make the ultimate recreation of the show's experience in game form. The latest attempt even goes so far as to claim such right there in the title!
Excerpt: Generally speaking, the Dragon Ball games look way better than they play. Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is the latest example of this trend, as it delivers a visually faithful experience that completely fails to deliver anything in the way of meaningful gameplay.
Excerpt: DBZ holds a special place in the nostalgia center of my heart, so of course I'm excited when I hear of any form of new DBZ media. This goes double for games due to my love of gaming and the ability to enjoy the game with friends.
Conclusion: The game is average, it has a smaller roster then most of the recent Dragon Ball fighting games, and the gameplay is very limited however it is the first outing with this new battle system so I look forward to seeing what they can do by improving upon it.
Review: Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi (Sony PS3)
7 November 2011
Excerpt: I have a somewhat sordid history with the Dragon Ball Z series. I loved the TV show up until it hit the Namek and Freiza saga and dragged on for a whole season in one fight. Then I got back into it when it started focusing on Gohan and really got annoyed that it shifted back to Goku just as fast.
Excerpt: Over the years, Dragon Ball Z games have managed to entertain throngs of anime fans, even though the series went through its most popular anime run years ago. Namco Bandai must have a heavy reliance on this, because it’s back with yet another game in the series, Ultimate Tenkaichi.
Conclusion: At least it's pretty to look at. I went in with low expectations and this game somehow tripped and fell over the bar before crashing and burning in an explosion of terrible. I don't know who thought this was fun but the DBZ cast deserves a lot better.
