Short but fun,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit (PS3) (Video Game)
I bought this game as part of a 'catch-up' for the recently released Ultimate Tenkaichi and didn't go in with high expectations. I'm a big fan of the anime but didn't think there was much chance in a game being very fun. However, I'm glad to admit I was wrong. This game is very short with a story mode that can be completed on normal difficulty in under one day (and potentially one long sitting) and is very simple, but is a lot of fun and is addictive and well created. The gameplay is vastly different to the other PlayStation 3 entries in the series (Raging Blast & 2 and Ultimate Tenkaichi) but is very easy to get into and is actually more of a faithful recreation of many of the cutscenes (for those into that) than Raging Blast. There are unfortunately no trophies for this game, due to it being released early on in the PS3s life, but has very good graphics in a very faithful adaptation of the anime's design which really adds to the experience of playing as the characters. The environments are pulled directly from the anime as well (with a couple appearing to be from the original series Dragon Ball) and are large enough for some good long-range fights, but are not as expansive as Raging Blast. The same can be said for the character roster. The game was released before the Majin Buu saga, and therefore only includes characters and events from the Saiyan Saga up to the end of the Cell Saga, with characters and storylines deriving from the extra films Bardock, Father of Goku and Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan. However, the storyline does include an extra "what-if" scenario including Bardock and includes a much more organic character and story unlock system than the Raging Blast "gimme all the best guys first" design. Overall a fun (if albeit short) fighter in the vein of Street Fighter but with more bad-ass moves (that's right Capcom, come get me!) A great game to play with a couple of friends that also enjoy the series.
