Dragon Ball Z For Kinect
16 December 2012
Summary: Kame-Hame-Hoo-Boy It seemed like a good idea at the time: Take the popular Dragon Ball Z fighting games and put them in first person perspective with Kinect controls, allowing players to punch, kick, and Kamehameha their way through the series' popular battles, allowing players to be immersed in the...
Excerpt: DragonBall Z products have not done well historically with Family Friendly Gaming. So a major thank you to Namco Bandai for allowing us this opportunity to review this title. I came away from Dragon Ball Z for Kinect with impressions that may surprise our readers. I came away impressed.

Pros: The sizable cast of playable characters, Your first rapid-fire pummeling, Finishing an opponent with a Kamehameha
Cons: Unresponsive motion controls, Repetitive, unnecessarily long cutscenes, The poorly designed first boss fight

Excerpt: Like the name says, this latest entry in the sprawling anime-based series uses Kinect to cast you as Goku, Vegeta, and dozens of other big-haired brawlers, letting you unleash punches, kicks, and colossal fireballs by moving your body.
Pros: + Unleash iconic fireballs and more with your body.
