Excerpt: DragonBall Evolution is the game based on the movie based on the anime series of sort-of the same name. And quite frankly, the game feels like it. Visually, DragonBall Evolution gets the job done, but considering it's pretty much just a 2D fighter, the only thing it really needs is nice looking models and backgrounds, plus some special effects for the more powerful moves. Well, it has that.
Excerpt: I'll be honest – what you are reading is the second review I've written for Dragonball: Evolution, the PSP exclusive fighting game based on the American "re-imagining" of the Dragonball universe, a theatrical film of the same name. For the past few months, I've gone back and forth on how I thought I'd feel about the movie when it was released.
Summary: Based on the 20th Century Fox feature film of the same name, Dragonball: Evolution promises to be the perfect companion for the movie by incorporating all of the characters, bone jarring fights and spectacular special abilities that fans have come to expect.
Excerpt: Boy, do I have a wish... So... somebody thought it was a good idea to make a game based around a movie developed from an animé derived from a manga. Whomever had this idea popped into their head – and then proceeded to write a script, hire a production staff and actors – should be trampled by the largest, smelliest band of fanboys this planet has ever known.
Pros: Scales well for large environments, Technically playable, Graphics from ten years ago, Barebones controls, Ridiculously bad script, Throwaway extras, Everything else
Conclusion: Wow. I don't mean that in the fun this-game-is-surprisingly-good way, I mean it in the this-is-worse-than-even-licensed-games-ought-to-be way. Hold this up as one of the worst examples of rushed, pointless licensed efforts out there. Just don't play it.
Excerpt: Dragonball Evolution is a game based on the movie of the same name. This may already have put people off as we all know how movie tie-ins normally turn out, however this time the movie is based on the anime series which has a longstanding series of fairly successful games. So how does DBE compare to previous series outings?
