Wii controls render the game unusable
on 5 June 2014
Having previously played and loved this game on the PS2 when it first came out, I recently went on a nostalgia trip and ordered this game for the Wii as I no longer use a PS2.
What used to be a sophisticated yet simple beat-em-up with a huge roster of characters, some great little nods and winks for die-hard Dragon Ball Z fans, and a huge storyline that you could get stuck into for hours, is now reduced to waving your arms about holding the Wiimote to try and replicate a Kamehameha or a Spirit Bomb. It's gimmicky and means that 50% of the time, when you try to pull off a move, it doesn't register at all. It's extremely frustrating trying to get Goku to use a Kaioken move when all he seems to want to do is Solar Flare!
It got to the point where I slumped into the sofa in disappointed defeat. Unless you are a professional cheerleader who can memorise entire dance routines in order to pull off a combo, then I do not suggest picking this game up on the Wii. The 2 stars are mainly for the potential the game has on this console with the introduction of online play and the epic storyline, but it is simply unplayable.
