Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z has been a rather prolific anime about a group fighters defending Earth from a variety of villains. Budokai Tenkaichi 2 on the Nintendo Wii (also on the PS2) outlines a large portion of the many series’ story arcs. Fortunately for those of us who don’t know a thing about the series, this game is very accessible.
Excerpt: After a period of delay, it seems the latest and greatest Dragon Ball game ever has finally beached itself on Australian shores. Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi 2 has the numbers and the name, boasting over 100 playable characters from the original Dragon Ball to GT sagas, but does it have the substance to entertain anyone but hardcore fans of the series?

There’s tons of fighters to unlock and lots of game to do it with. The unfortunate part is that it’s the same mindless fare over and again.

Few anime characters have the ability to be childishly naive and brutally lethal at the same time.
Excerpt: In BT2, you follow the plot of the Dragonball, Dragonball Z, and Dragonball GT anime. You are paired up with an enemy, and in classic fighting game style, its a fight to the death. A nice feature here is that a lot of levels will have tag team matches. (For example, the fight with Vegeta and Nappa has the two villains pitted against Piccolo, Gohan, Krillin, Tien, and Yamcha, who can switch in and out of the fight at will) As you defeat your foes, you unlock new sagas of...
Conclusion: there’s been a real effort in mimicking the special moves of the characters, like throwing a fire ball by pulling the controllers back then thrusting them forward. It’s definitely not easy to learn the Wii controls – most fighting fans will likely opt for the Classic Controller or Wavebird.
