This game is the next generation of the dbz games... and there starting with all the old characters first. Well most of u guys are mad about that but u shouldn't be. If a new dbz game is going to start its good to start with the old characters first because if u cram every character in one game...how the heck are they going to make any more dbz games when they used all the characters. With few characters....there able to produce more games later. U guys should think about that instead of getting mad because there's not too many characters to start with. Other than that this game looks very good. The graphics and the fighting play looks good. It's like there bringing the very first budokai game out. I'm happy about that. I always like the budokai's 1, 2, and 3 better than tenkaichi game. It's like your playing TAG on a dbz game. The budokai's 1, 2, and 3 established exclusive fighting and part 3 has great super moves witch i hope is in this game. Overall this game is going to be great.

This game is bigger than anything the DBZ realm has every seen! It's based off DBZ Shin Budokai for Sony PSP. Atari finally brought back the Budokai 3 style and allows you to choose straight on view, or the Tenkaichi Shoulder camera angle. The story line is great, and goes from the Saiyan saga, to the end of the Cell Games, so be sure to expect a sequel in the future. Other great features such as in game transformations, the new aura burst system, and online gameplay are what makes this game so amazing. The makers reduced all the in-battle cutscenes, and kept to the one-on-one battles. Unfortunately there are no tag team battles. It's just straight brute attacks, and less knockback cutscenes, where you crash off rocks and buildings. Transformations and all, there are at least 30 playable characters. And last, but not least, the amazing graphics. If you don't have a PS3 or 360, I advise you to get one quick, or you're gonna miss out on one of the best fighting games yet!
Rated 10 out of 10 by DbzOverlord14 DBZ Does It Again
Though some say this game isn't long enough I agree. But this game does have online battles, which you can have your power level ranking and be ranked with people all around the world. There is also a new feature called Trials where you can do Survival mode and that is also ranked for how long you last. There are also 2 more other than survival but unfortunatly I have not gotten that far but the Zchronicles could be longer I beat the whole Chornicle in 4 hours 22 mins. on Easy. It only goes up to Cell Saga and Broly, along with Bardack but those are added on. It could have had the Buu Saga and then it would be much better. I also don't like that this game has few unlckables and you can't change character color. Goku only can do Super Sayain 1 in this game and Kaioken. On the good side the controls are good along with the specials. But the main part is that the graphics are some of the best we've seen from any game. Nice Job on makin the game I enjoyed it and I'm still playin I Give this Game a 10 out of 10!
Rated 8 out of 10 by BUCCSHOT A Good Start For The Next-Gen DBZ Series
Burst limit has a lot of good qualities to it. The graphics are incredible on both systems and it runs great on both systems, at first I didn't like the fact it only has 25 characters and it goes back to the basic budokai series of fighting but it is still fun. I enjoy playing Burst limit and tenkaichi 3....the only thing i don't like about burst limit is after playing budokai tenkaichi 3 you feel like you take a step back because you could fly all over and the moves could be fired from anywhere and the fighting system is better on tenkaichi 3...but like my title states it's a start a very good start for the next gen DBZ games, when and if they decide to go back to the tenkaichi fighting style of being able to fly and fire off your specials from any where it will be amazing. My three main gripes of burst limit is you don't need to charge up to do your moves...like in the cartoon they do so I don't like that, the limited characters secondly, and third no majin vegeta....Lol but overall I give it an 8 out of 10.
Rated 5 out of 10 by MaNsLaYeR17 Needs Improvement
THis game looks very nice and plays nice as well. But it lacks certain things the previous game have. The character selection is not what it used to be they left out a lot of fun and good characters. The story line os comparible to the very first DBZ game to come out for the PS2. The previous game had a very indepth storyline that went from Dragon Ball and through all the movies and into DBZ GT. This one only goes to the Cell Saga and does the first Broly movie. For the money spent on this game I would expect a longer game play time and something comparible to the previous games. Me and my friend beat the entire storyline it took us about 4 hours and compared to the previous one where it took an entire day or more to complete the game. I think there should have been a much longer storyline with more characters and this would have been the best DBZ game to date. For a next gen system i expected more from the game but non the less still enjoyed it as a DBZ fan.

They really have to spice things up a little, what is this, the first DBZ game for the next-gen consoles, correct? Plus, this would be the beginning of a new series immediately following the "Tenkaichi" series. Not a fantastic start, as I heard in one of the previous comments, there are even less characters than BT3, and the story-mode actually sounds worse than last game, in my opinion anyway, seeing as it goes up only until the Cell Saga. Better graphics, and I believe there's a different style and approach to the general fighting style of the game, but, they have to do better than that, this is the next-generation consoles we're talking about here! I do, however, believe that there will be future DBZ games for the next-gen consoles, and they will be better than this, I would consider this to be the "SmackDown vs Raw 2008" of the DragonBall Z video game series, with little to no improvement. I'd save my money... Be blessed Michael
Rated 10 out of 10 by OwnageMan Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 1 on steroids
This is the same Budokai 1 game that came out almost a decade a go with next generation graphics and features from budokai 3. I was very dissappointed with this game when I discovered that it does not go to the Buu saga and it does not have that many characters. I like how they went back to the budokai battle system instead of the garbage tenkaichi system. Graphics and sound are amazing. Despite how well this game turn out to be I feel like I was robbed because Atari has a thing for recycling this series. Next DBZ game for ps3/ xb360 is probably only gonna be up to the buu saga and then the third one is GT. Why can't they just give it to us all at once. Especially since they already did this for the ps2. It's like they are going back and reselling those games to us.However, this game is much better then tenkaichi. TENAKICHI SUCKS! . It's dragon ball on training wheels! So I suggest you buy this game if you want Next Generation DBZ with a superior battle system. If Atari really wanted to make a great DBZ game they would remake Ultimate Battle 22, that by far is the best DBZ game ever.

For those who enjoy the Tenkaiachi series beware! No easy cheese in this game! Although the BT series opened up the franchise for casual gamers I always felt that they dumbed down the fighting engine from the Budokai series. To hear and see the best Anime Fighting Engine making a return is a good thing, a very good thing! Here you have to have some skill and the Drama Piece system is interesting and I cannot wait to see the gameplay. The graphics are just awesome as they should be on the Next-Gen consoles. Online fighting will now be a reality, a long time coming.....This is going to be cool! As far as the story mode it begins with the Saiyan Saga and end's with Cell. Although it would be nice to see Super Saiyan 4 in beauutiful HD, I think Atari has the right idea to take it slow and develop and expand the fighting engine to make it better from B3. We all want a new game, not a redressed B3. I am a big DBZ fan and this WILL be the best fighting game this year, just watch! Soul Calibur will not have a leg to stand on. Go Atari, and Dimps! I believe new fans and old will enjoy this game!

Dragon Ball Z Burst Limit is a promising title that looks to expand upon the allready successful series. Following the traditional fighting style Burst limit offers one thing its predecesors could not bring to the table. That is, the true embodyment of the DBZ universe. The previous titles have concentrated on large character rosters (up to 150 even) and the skills for each character. Every Larger charcter would fight like brokly but with a different skin on an dhave a different Ultimatte Ki attack. This made the gameplay monotonious and boring at points. What Burst Limit promises is a deeper story one that only streches from the arival of the saiyan saga to the end of the cell games. With a roster limited to roughly 31 charcters the game promises a unique experience with each charcter. This Game is a must buy for any DBZ fan and any PS3 Owner who enjoys a good fighting experience
Rated 10 out of 10 by salsaman1 Best DBZ yet!!!
This game is great. Each character has its own fighting style making the game better. The graphics are great and the sound is great too. This is a must have game for the ps3. If you get bored of fighting your friends you can take it to the next level and fight anyone in the world using online play. I recommend this game to any dbz fans. Yes, there are less characters compared to Tenkaichi but this has an advantage because each character has its own fighting style and own set of moves. I rate this game 10-10. Is one of the best fighting game out. Plus if you get it soon then the game will come with a blu-ray movie of dragon ball z dead zone. So if you have the cash why not get this game. Another good thing is that the fighting positions of the characters went back to original format not like the tenkaichi 3 version which I hated. As I said before best DBZ game yet.
