Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai
21 July 2007
Conclusion: For those eager BDZ fans, this is another stellar title to add to your collection. For those new to the series, I would suggest at least renting the title, unless you like fighting games, then this is a definite must have. With an over whelming roster of fighters to choose from (once you unlock the rest), you are certainly going to spend some hours playing this game until you have gotten every secret possible within this game.
Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai is the first game from the successful anime-inspired franchise to make its way to the PSP. There is the opportunity to take on your friends in exhilarating wireless multiplayer battles or go it alone facing the computer, using all the familiar aspects of Dragon Ball Z combat, including super high-speed bouts, counter-attacks, flight and Ki (energy) management.
Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai brings Atari and Dimps' successful anime-inspired fighting series to the PlayStation Portable in a package that isn't particularly ambitious but is still well-executed enough to make it worthwhile. The simple, fast-paced action of the Budokai series translates well onto the PSP, and the presentation is both eye-catchingly vibrant and technically flashy.
Pros: Manic gameplay successfully mirrors DBZ fights, Visuals are colorful, stylish, and full of over-the-top special effects, Solid selection of latter-day DBZ characters
Cons: Neglects some of the best parts of Budokai 3, Shabby selection of gameplay modes, Profile cards are lame, lame, lame
Excerpt: But recently I have been approached by the people behind this game in order to do a review, which I am always up to doing… except for the fact that it means I have to bite the bullet and invest in a PSP. So starting this week I expand my horizons by reviewing PSP games, with this first week’s batch of outlooks being first look at some of the games I plan to review, with first looks at DragonBall Z Shin Budokai and Me and My Katamari.
Excerpt: Die beliebte Manga-Reihe â€™Dragon Ball Zâ€™ sorgte schon in vielen Videospielumsetzungen fÃ¼r gepflegten und Fan-gerechten Comic-PrÃ¼gelspaÃŸ. Nun lassen Goku, Vegeta, Cell, Frieza & Co ihre Martial-Arts-FÃ¤uste auch auf der PSP sprechen. Mit Erfolg?
Pros: sehr gute Dragon-Ball-AtmosphÃ¤re, schlagkrÃ¤ftige Moves, gute PrÃ¤sentation
Cons: spielerisch schnell monoton, Story spricht allenfalls echte Dragon-Ball-Z-Fans an, Stempel und Profilkarte besonders sinnlos
Excerpt: Enkele jaren geleden volgde ik af en toe de tekenfilmserie Dragonball op tv. De serie trok me aan omdat de vechtscènes er vet uitzagen. Laatst zag ik Dragonball Z: Shin Budokai in de stelling liggen bij mijn lokale gameboer. Aangezien ik nog geen vechtgame op mijn PSP had heb ik de game gekocht.
Excerpt: A Dimps trouxe até à PSP uma versão reduzida, mas extremamente divertida, de Budokai 3. Os mais recentes episódios de Budokai têm vindo a ganhar cada vez mais adeptos. Por essa razão, a saga baseada no universo de Dragon Ball Z não poderia ficar afastada do ecrã da portátil Sony. E apesar de não trazer algumas das delícias presentes no excelente Budokai 3, garante uma boa experiência aos fãs da saga distribuída pela Atari.
