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.

While this title originally appeared on the PlayStation 2, some slight modification were made in this release on the Wii. But is it worth a look?
