Summary: Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo
is actually an entertaining change from the usual Wii fare. While not overly tough or deep, the game is enjoyable on its own level, and that’s what really counts in the end.
Pros: Finally I can choose which language I want to hear, and appreciate the damn thing on its own merits as originally intended! Take that, you lousy dubbers!, Well animated, and matches the style of the anime., It’s not all about fights, constipated grunting, and seeing who’s the strongest…
Cons: Fights are too easy…in fact, the entire game is too easy, …and short, It’s not what Dragon Ball gamers were expecting, by a long shot.

Summary: Parents need to know that despite its earnest and good-intentioned young hero, this action adventure game is really all about fighting. The fighting is cartoony but there is a lot of it, coupled with a fair amount of name-calling.
Review: Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo (Nintendo Wii)
18 January 2010
Summary: Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo is by no means a bad game, but it isn’t a great game either. For fans of the series, or those looking for a lighter platforming brawler, I can happily recommend it. The graphics are good, shading towards great in places.
Summary: Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo is a good way to introduce younger gamers to Dragon Ball, but don't hope for anything more than that from Revenge. The game follows the adventures of a very young Goku, starting with his fight against the Red Ribbon Army.
Pros: Easy intro to Dragon Ball brawlers for the very young, Japanese language track
