by LukeSkywalker1 Good GamePlay but AWFULLY(Horribly)Short Story
I got this for christmas at first it was cool but when i beat it i found out it didn't have the buu saga i also knew before i beat it i had a book of cheat codes and it had no one from the buu saga so it was fine but i wouldn't recommend it to big fans of dragonball z if your friend is a fan and you never seen the show or seires then buy it

This game was exactly what I was looking for in all the games all along. I was a huge DBZ fan when I was young, I haven't had a Playstation or Nintendo to play any of their games on, so it had been awhile. I seen the previews for this, and said " Why not give it a shot? " So I did and it didn't dissapoint. I have a great time playing it, the achievements aren't too easy, nor are they too hard. I already have 30/50 cause that's how much I play. If I'm 14 and don't usually give a crap about Dragon Ball Z, and I picked it up and loved it.... If you're a hardcore DBZ fan, then you'll worship it. So, I do recommend it. It is really great. Like other people have said and if you don't quite understand why, here's the mouth movement/ sound issue's source. The game was originally made in Japan, so it was dubbed into English. The mouth movement stayed the same though. It does have great graphics, I feel like I'm playing in the show. This is definately worth your money folks, get out there and buy it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by SaiyanFusion Looks awesome! But...
Dragonball Z Burst Limit looks incredible and I'll probably get it, but it only goes to the Cell Saga. That's about a 6th of the story, even less if Dragonball is not included. I downloaded the demo for XBOX 360 and it lokks cool. The style is more like the Budokai series (with a few control twists) than the newer Tenkaichi series. Whether that's good or not depends on the player's opinion. Another good thing about this game is that the cutscenes are actually interesting and blend into the game. When I say the cutscenes "blend in," I mean the cutscenes and the gameplay don't have any "gap" in beween, they flow together. Remember the awesome Budokai 1 cutscenes that had more action than talking? Well they're back in Burst Limit! There will probably be two other Burst Limits to finish the story, just like all of the other games. Why the developers can't extend the release date and actually finish the game is a mystery to me, unless they're just trying to get as much money as humanly possible.

First, the disclaimer: I HAVE ONLY PLAYED THE XBOX LIVE DEMO. Based on that: The art design was great, it really reminded me of the show. The sound was good as well however the voiceovers left much to be desired. I have played previous games (Tenkaichi 3 and Budokai) and they were all excellent in art, level design, interactivity, and story. Now they took the ability to throw, kick, blast or fly your opponent to another part of the stage out of the game, which to me was the most fun. Gone are the days of blowing up a building, mountain or tree with your opponent inside. I HEARD it only goes to the Cell Saga, which would be a huge let down given the number of characters in previous games. The combos and their respective visuals are watered down and bland - if you manage to do anthing that looks cool to begin with. Now there's a "savior system", so to speak, if you're getting beat a character will come in and save you or vice versa. Bring back the world destroying super combos and let me fight with ALL OF THE CHARACTERS!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Devils_Dime One of the few amazing fighting games out for 360.
If you are a die hard DBZ fan then this game is almost everything you could hope for. The graphics are amazing and the controls are easy to pick up after you spend some time getting used to them. My major complaint for this would have to be the story. Unless you are a die hard DBZ fan and you have seen every episode till the Cell Saga the story may get confusing because the company left out important pieces of information. For example, who Trunks is? How Goku got back from Namek? And where did Cell come from!?!?!?!Only half of the show was shown in this game with the exception of the Majin Buu Saga. The challenge is great considering all the different difficulty levels you can choose through and the new ranking system (A,B,C,S,Z) makes the game have that much more of a replay value. The character selection is great and the bonus chapters for Broly and Bardock are an excellent add on to an already amazing game. The online play will become addicting and this is a truly great fighting game for a console which lacks in that division.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Juicer Freak awsome game
I've watched the DBZ series ever since the first show came out many years ago when I was younger, I completed watching the series when the last dragonball gt episode was out, so I'm a big dbz fan. I own basically all the dragonball z games (budaki, techni, etc. I abandoned these games a long time ago when I got my 360) so I'm very comfortable for the gameplay here. First I would like to point out is the sound, it's like the best ever. You get to hear everything happening at once so vivdly so clearly, second, if you're a dbz fanatic like me, you'll be pleased on all the content that's in here, but it's basically all the dbz games combined in 1. This game is awesome. The only thing bad about it are the short cut scenes during fights, sometimes they're cool, most of the time they last 3 seconds and you wish you could skip them but you can't, sadly. This is probably the best fighting game out for 360 and ps3 now. Soul calibur 4 has some competition.
Rated 10 out of 10 by chicopedasos Best Dragon Ball Z Game To Date.
Let's see what can I say? DBZ: Burst Limit is a very fun game. The graphics are really cool and all. The sounds are amazing. The story though has a little missing points here and there,but if your a true Dragon Ball fan you won't care as much. Another thing with it, is that the voices don't match up to the characters animations like in Budokai. Aside from that you can just change the Audio to Japanese. This is a very great game in my opinion. It's totally worth your time and money. I don't really buy Dragon Ball Z games due to the fact that there all the same and there's like billions now, but I tell you buy this game. You won't regret, the controls take a while to get use to and the combos will too. Once you get the hang of it, man...You'll be kicking your friends butt with them. Now there isn't that many characters and it only ends at the Cell Saga. I just recently heard that there's a Burst Limit 2 coming out, but don't let that stop you from buying the first Burst Limit. This video game is well worth your money. I give it a 10/10.

I was a huge fan of the dbz: budokai series when they first came out in America. They gave me the perfect dragonball z experience while staying relatively true to the series. But after tenkaichi came out, I was sorely disappointed in the way the game handled 2 player mode, and the overall controls. So I was kind of skeptical about bust limit, but I downloaded the demo off xbl marketplace anyway. I was greatly impressed with the return to the classic fighting game style. no more shoddy attempts at 3-d. on top of that, the cel shading for this game is quite impressive, it feels like anime, but looks deep and 3 dimensional. And the return to the old control style was greatly pleasing. I could pick the game up and play the same as I used to without a single tutorial. The only thing that was really different was the way the shoulder buttons were used. But I think the control scheme was well implemented. So while some may say that they wish that this was fully 3-d and free range, I say this is going to be great and is definitely worth buying.

This game is ill. This is the most beautiful game i've ever seen in my entire life. The animation and colors make it look like the show, yet they still captured the realism of the environments. The controls and combos make you feel like you are the character. However there was a character completely unneeded: Saibamen. He is almost useless. If they had cut him and left it the way it was it would have been the perfect character selection. There were these things called DRAMA pieces that make the battle more cinematic and movie like. Most of them are completely idiotic and repetitive, but if you get the right ones the battle is incredible. The special moves are not as cool as the other games and they do not show the planets blowing up. They can be destroyed and they look cool. The moves are not that cool looking but the ki gauge is unlimited, unless you transform, burn aura, get into the aura spark, or anything involving teleporting or using the rt button. This game is not for everyone but it is incredible for those willing to go back to basics, GET IT!
Rated 2 out of 10 by Shaysler 78 not that good ! ! ! !
I think dragon ball z sagas were good but after i bought this game it really dissapointed me. the Graphics/Animation were really good. Still the story line was really bad it really changed the saga story. plus the unlockables were not that good. the speacial moves were cool some of them were not that good, the fast attacks were prety much cool. The controls were not cool. i really think this game could be made better but still they ruined the story oh this good and cool games of dran ball z sagas.The characters were prety much the same dudes. The sounds was prety impresive i really liked then of this game. The chalenged was not that good, the only thing that helped the game to be a llitle bit good was the graficts and the sound from this game. the other things were not good. I really recomend to not buy this game. trust me !! but still is a good game for people that dont like the story and just want a fighting game
