Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi PS2 Review
31 May 2010
Excerpt: Is this reviewer really fit to review a Dragon Ball Z game? He’s not a fan of the hugely popular Japanese anime series after all. The answer is simple; he is as capable of reviewing this game as any hardened DBZ fan would be. A game is a game at the end of the day whatever it may be, and we love our games with a passion here at Console Obsession.
Summary: Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 seems to have everything going for it, but thanks to a questionable control set-up, boring stories and annoying voice acting, it's hard to recommend this newest fighting game. Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.
Excerpt: The beat 'em up has been around for nearly as long as gaming. Its genre is responsible for some of the most memorable titles in videogame history. Street Fighter 2, SNK and Soul Calibur are prime examples of games that helped to define a culture. Another genre that also serves the videogame world - perhaps not as well, some might say - is the licensed videogame. Quality here is very mixed, but a game as good as King Kong is the exception, not the rule.
Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z®: Budokai Tenkaichi is the only game to combine fighting and flying in wide open, destructible 3D environments. In the air, on the ground or under water, DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi gives players the ability to battle with unprecedented power and freedom and experience the intensity of DBZ fighting in an all-new way by combining melee combat, energy attacks and 3D flight with third-person action in a fully interactive recreation of the Dragon Ball universe.
Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z. There are few anime series that have attained so much popularity, contempt, and fan following at the same time. It’s been years since the world was introduced to Goku, the endearingly naïve fighter with unparalleled strength and determination. His epic battles against incredible odds have won him admirers everywhere, with each bout bringing something different to the table.
Conclusion: There is a versus mode but because the game doesn’t have the pick-up-and-playability that, say Tekken or DoA has it’s hard to actually play properly. I played against a mate when the game first arrived and because you actually need to know the buttons it turned into 2 minutes of flying around in the air, slapping each other every so often and maybe pulling off a super move by luck.
Pros: Nice graphics, Faithful to the cartoon, Lots to do.
Conclusion: With limited knowledge (and boy do I mean limited knowledge) of the Dragon Ball Z universe I managed to truly enjoy DBZ: BT, so it goes without saying that this is a must for Dragon Ball fans. The main fighting system may lack some depth while compared to other game in the same genre but without doubt it is loads of fun to use.
