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)

Rated 1 out of 10 by Narutobeast1 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by ricoman99 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.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Kozmar 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
Rated 7 out of 10 by Vrunks 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by bloom THE GAME IS'NT BAD BUT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT
Dragon Ball Z Battle Of Z is pretty nice but the down side to the game is that you no longer have local co-op T_T. So you can now only play multiplayer co-op, that's not half bad and all its just when you can no longer play with friends and family a home i takes away from he fun. My family never really played the game with me that much, but with this new game im pretty sure they would like to try it at least once lol.
and it would be nice o have more stable combos like on DBZT3. One character that can go super sayain, Goku for example, we should be able to unlock goku from when he can go super sayain, liike in DBZT3, to where we will be able to use super sayain when we need/want to, not to where you pick if you want super sayain Goku or just Goku. i dont know if its like that or not, one the demo you can only get to the fourth mission. All in all the game is really nice!
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE DEMO AT PSN STORE
Rated 0 out of 10 by Matheusela PLEASE READ IF YOU PLAN ON BUYING
In case you haven't done enough research to figure it out, I have played hours of the demo and here is what you must understand;
1. THIS GAME IS NOT LIKE ANY BUDOKAI TITLE.
The fighting is not arcade style, nor is really very similar to the Tenkaichi style. The fighting is very much geared toward team battle. Assist attacks, combinations, and even techniques that heal or give energy to team mates. This is a SQUAD BASED fighter, something very unique.
2. THIS GAME IS BUILT FOR ONLINE PLAY.
You will be able to play by yourself, and it is still pretty fun, but there is no LOCAL TWO PLAYER. You must play online to play with friends. Also, I can tell you from experience, the game is VASTLY more fun when played online.
IF YOU ARE UNSURE whether these drastic changes to the form suit you, please, wait until the game comes out pre-owned and buy it. Then you have a seven day return window. Peace out.
Rated 0 out of 10 by LordOfDeath Just a though on story mode
Now I love dragonball z, huge fan....but the raging blast series story mode I don't think I cared to much for it and how it is set up. it is always a game breaking thing for me....I didn't even like how Tenkaichi's story lines where set up and the only one I liked there was the 3rd in that series because the gameplay surpassed the terrible story mode. this is what id like to see, Id like to see them start at least as far back as the saiyan saga leading up to the battle of the gods...excluding gt if they feel like it....but in a more creative way to get the story across instead of clicking on a scenario and going in to play the one scene. also id like to see the animated toons act out most of the scene's if not all of them....so I am hoping to hear good reviews and if anyone has a link to anything about how it might be set up or how story mode is played let me know or post It here please
