Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road

18 April 2007
  • Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai – Another Road for the PSP is Atari’s latest iteration in the anime fighting series, and it takes the prize for having the longest title. Rather than recycling the same old stories, the developers have opted to create a new plot based in an alternate future. Trunks travels back in time to gain the assistance of Goku and the other heroes to help him save a world under threat by a villain seeking to resurrect the powerful Majin Buu.

Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road Review

28 March 2007
  • Excerpt: Last year's Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai for the PlayStation Portable was a decent fighting game that succeeded on its ability to deliver manic action with a good amount of over-the-top, Dragon Ball Z flair. A year later, Atari returns with Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road. It was a wise decision not to call it Shin Budokai 2, as Another Road brazenly recycles nearly everything of consequence from the first Shin Budokai.
  • Pros: Flashy, over-the-top action, Interesting new card-based power-up system, Features plenty of fan-favorite DBZ fighters
  • Cons: Very little original content, New story mode plagued by load times, Not much functional difference between fighters

  • Conclusion: Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai Another Road è, purtroppo, soltanto un upgrade del primo capitolo per PSP. La modalità in single player si dimostra poco longeva, e alla lunga noiosa, mentre quella multiplayer può regalare ore di divertimento coi propri amici nonostante la mancanza di modalità alternative. Se non avete giocato al primo Shin Budokai aggiungete un voto al giudizio finale.
  • Pros: Bella grafica, Tanti personaggi giocabili, Controlli ben impostati
  • Cons: Semplice upgrade del primo Shin Budokai, Parte RPG non del tutto riuscita

  • Excerpt: Któż nie zna opowieści o Goku i jego dzielnej ekipie, która nie raz i nie dwa ratowała wszechświat przed niszczycielskimi zakusami różnorakich złośliwych typów z najdalszych zakątków kosmosu? Anime Dragon Ball ma przeciwników, fanów i ludzi całkowicie na jej urok obojętnych. Jedni twierdzą, że kreskówka jest infantylna, nudna, z głupimi dialogami oraz że postacie potrafią tłuc się z jednym przeciwnikiem przez kilkadziesiąt odcinków.

  • Conclusion: Obwohl der Story-Mode nur etwas für wahre Dragonballer ist, wird Shin Budokai auch viele Freunde ohne Vorkenntnisse gewinnen können. Sowohl Steuerung als auch Gameplay sind absolut gelungen und die rasanten Kämpfe werden jeden Bemu- und Action-Fan schnell begeistern. Besonders die spektakuläre Grafik mit ihren aufwendigen Effektgewittern lässt einem öfters mal ein respektvolles "wow!" über die Lippen kommen.
