Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai 2 PSP Review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: When I’m not industriously pouring my life into the bottomless well of video gaming I work at my local pub. It’s a pretty high-class pub, the sort of pub you wouldn’t venture into without a pair of pedigree Labradors and a golfing habit. There’s a rotating connoisseur ale selection and all kinds of poncy Belgian beers, served in glasses which get you drunk just by looking at them.
Excerpt: Goku and his crew just won't take a rest. The Dragon Ball Z posse is back for another handheld outing in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai 2 for the PSP. In a break from the Dragon Ball Z norm - for a game, TV show or movie, Shin Budokai 2 takes place in a non-canon, alternate timeline. It's a kind of 'what if...' storyline, set in the alternate future where Future Trunks lives and Goku has died.
Conclusion: Flawed beyond recommendation, Dragon Ball Z is a flimsy fighter with unsatisfying controls and options. Fans of the anime could force a smile at it, but that smile would hide a scowl. This is average stuff, and occasionally it’s worse than that.
Excerpt: Just like the EA Sports range, Dragon Ball Z games, in particular the Budokai range, have taken to having yearly releases. Since the original release of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai on the PS2 in 2002, we’ve seen new incarnations yearly, with Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 set for release later this year. The Budokai series, while questionable at times, the games are probably the most solid of all the Dragon Ball games.
Excerpt: Simple button mashing that should entertain for a while. Dragon Ball Z is a Japanese cartoon that has been around since the dawn of time. Well ok, not really, but it has been around a while. Starting in 1986 it had 291 episodes, 13 movies and few spin offs! The basic premise follows Goku and friends as they defend the earth from various villains. In Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai 2 we are presented with an alternate story line.
Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z has a long history with video games. Unfortunately, a fair few of them have ranged from not that good to quite bad. Even though a few of the best were never released outside of Japan, at least the Budokai series has steadily improved to give quite a solid and faithful Dragon Ball Z experience. Using the experience from three titles, the Budokai series makes its way to the PSP in the form of Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai .
