Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z
back to legends
Game is fun but simple. First time playing this during the demo I tried to think what this reminded me of now I know. Game takes you back to dbz: legends. (for those unfamiliar, this what the first dbz game for ps1 Japanese format only no English release) most controls are 2 button basic attacks but can pull off ki moves with some practice. Not too far yet but the character Load out is decent. I'm waiting for the day they put ss kid goku and goku Jr in a game (actual characters not character created)
this game is worth it
Just got the game today and it is fun. i like it so far. even did online battles with friedns.only complaints is need more moves and how to fight other players online insteaed of fighting in story mode?
So getting this
but what if nether realm studios made this if you don't know who they are there the creators mortal kombat 9 and injustice if they made a DBZ game it would look amazing
One of the Better Ones, Get it.
The game is very good and requires you to perform good in order to unlock other characters and stages. You should really get your friends to get this game because it has online play and 4 slots including you. The Game doesn't have the system where you pick a character bot and fight against them. It's a 4v4 game, and requires teamwork. Still, It's true to the sagas, and you can play as the hero or the bad guy. Keep in mind that the hero story is easier, and you should complete that first. There's also (Another Age) and (Extra Age) Which you usually get for completing a saga. Once you complete the actual sagas (Saiyan, Frieza/Namek, Cell/Android, and Buu Saga) you get one last age. This is where multiplayer comes in and you really need to work as a team and make a game plan. The Boss Battles are actually decent because they're equally powerful as your entire team. The game wants you to play online with friends or strangers. The Characters from Battle of Gods are also in this game which is pretty amazing. Seriously, get this game
THEY COULD'VE DONE BETTER
Dragon Ball Z Battle of Z is great. I've played it several times to make sure I get the least noticeable details out of it. The good part about the game are the four on four battles that never let the action stop. The landscaping graphics look better than any other DBZ game I've played. Each character has their own unique moves, and each one is for a certain objective also. The storyline is good, and they even add cool what if stories that are better than Raging Blast 2. This is what disappoints me though as a fellow DBZ fan. The game doesn't have much a good fighting combo. Also,the way you play the game is what makes people lose the appeal for the game. that's why rates were very low. If they would've kept the graphics for the characters from Ultimate Tenkaichi, the graphics would've looked a lot cool. I feel like the people who made the game didn't refer to the past games they've made for Dragon Ball Z. It's only fair the game got a 7 out ten to me. If I was the judge, I would've gave the game a rate of a 6. They could've done better.
What the heck?
Alright lets start with the fact yes there is a online co-op but for the first time ever since there has been a DBZ game on a console theres been a local co-op I want to play with the person in the room next to me. Or howa bout the misleading fact that we thought we'd be able to play story mode with our friends locally. Yes the graphics are good but the gameplay isn't that good, they've taken all the drama out of the game, they made transformations separate, they give you no directions in how to play it's just throwing you in there. I cant even figure out how to do an ultimate even though it shows you the buttons do I have to wait for my energy to completely charge ( oh and on that note you can't charge your own freaking ki you can only do it by doing nothing or beating on the guy) or do I wait for the big energy bar to do it. I'm retuning it when I get the chance. I have great respect for Akira but who is ever making these games needs to step it up. Try a Naruto game.
Rekindling The DBZ Flame
I've been disappointed with DBZ games lately. The biggest let-downs being DBZ for Kinect and DBZ Ultimate Tenkaichi. DBZ Raging Blast 1 and 2 were ok but were lacking a certain flare. DBZ game developers have been putting much focus on flashy, dramatic animations which is what DBZ games need. But I think they have been putting too much attention on flash and not enough attention on player involvement (Best example being DBZ Ultimate Tenkaichi.) Hardcore DBZ fans like myself have been craving a DBZ game creation with the perfect balance of true DBZ intensity and full player skill-use over their characters. Now, it would seem we will get just that and much more. Co-op probably being the most anticipated feature. Now DBZ console gamers will have what we've always been wanting. Maybe now I can take a break from my martial arts training and do a bit of long awaited martial arts gaming.
Dragon Ball is back!
This dragon ball z game will be one for the ages. The new fighting mechanics that it introduces are amazing. This game has incorporated more of a skillful fighting style of a over powering one instead. This game is a major improvement from the failure that was dished out 3 years ago Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi. This game also gives the ability to play the dragon ball z story online with friends and other people around the world. Battle of Z has the chain and other combined powered attacks, that must involve teammates. The energy bar also keeps you using team attacks and stops players from spamming the ultimate attack. The ultimate attack (Spirit bomb,Big bang attack Etc.) also can be called ultimate because you only use it as a last resort as if it was the cartoon. The ultimate attacks also kill the opponent on impact. Now for the bad things in the game. Transformations are unable to be done and you can no longer charge your individual energy or ki.
A step down from earlier games.
There is no reason to like or want this game. It is missing many features from older games. It has no 2 player mode in the same room, if you want to play with someone else you need another ps3 and another copy of the game. That's right, they removed the biggest staple on fighters, they removed the ability to play in the same room, so in a few years when the online is dead and they remove the plug you have to deal with the second problem. This would be that the AI is the worst of any DBZ game. The roster is also pretty small compared to other games. In short, save your money, this is something you pick up for 15 dollars, not 60.
One of the wrost!
This is one of the worst DBZ games I've ever played! The gameplay makes zero cents, all you do is mash triangle/ Y button for attack and help your useless Ai teammate. Thats the main problem with the game is the Ai, their so helpless and stupid. I know you can go online and play the story with co-op player or friend but if there not on the same part as you (story mission) there even more worthless. I cant recommend this game to anyone cause of its hard difficulty due to Ai and gameplay mechanics.
