The new DBZ game... Budokai?

Post by Jeeba Jabba » Fri Dec 27, 2002 11:15 am

Ive seen screenshots and heard reviews... The graphics look like Tekken 1 on PSX and I heard the gameplay sucks... What's you guys' opinions?

Yes they should have (2D fighter by Capcom, preferably). If you're a DBZ fan you'll probably like it....I have about three friends who've played it, all three of which love DBZ, and they all love Budokai.

Only DBZ game I've been able to play for more than a half hour is Hyper Dimension on the SNES.

Yeah...it's not too bad...if you like DBZ. The fighting system isn't very deep at all, and ultimately becomes a button masher...even for people who don't usually mash buttons. The episode mode thing is pretty spiffy...where you act out episodes. But as a fighting game...it's really shallow.

If it matters, there are only English voice tracks in this game (no Japanese). Reason stated for this was that there wasn't enough room. Oh well. I'm not a DBZ fan anyway.

This game is for fans only. If you love watching Dragonball Z, you could easily spend hours playing this game. However, If you only watched a few episodes of Dragonball Z, or you just don't like anything that bears the name of Dragonball, then there is nothing this game has to offer that could keep your interest for more than a half hour. This game has only one mission: To appeal to Dragonball Z fanatics.

It's tolerable. It has some interesting bits, and some bits that are utter poo. Certainly not the worst fighting game I've ever played. Rise of the Robots, anyone?

Never bring up that game on the forums. It will leave a permanent stain mark.
