Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans

 

Every week, it seems, a new Dragon Ball game is released. For the most part, these are forgettable releases that either feel dated or just aren't enjoyable. On the other hand, there's the rare release like Attack of the Saiyans, an RPG based on the...

Faithful to the series; difficulty level fits the audience; graphics are good and reminiscent of Chrono Trigger

Story is disjointed and hard to follow for non-DBZ fans

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans

 

Dragon Ball Z. It's spawned a lot of games – and I mean a LOT. A good 90% of the games spawned from the popular anime and manga series are fighters, but the rarest gems of all are RPGs. Previous iterations of Dragon Ball Z RPGs, including the GBA...

Overall, I found Attack of the Saiyans to be a short but admirable attempt at bringing structure and story-driven action to the series in its video game adaptations. It can become frustratingly difficult, but it's hard not to resist the charms of the...

The turn based RPG is far more versatile than people give it credit for.  Though the action is limited to animations, it allows for stories to become much larger and the reliance on cut scenes detaches the characters from the player's direct control,...

Nice animations

Generic design ; Same story as the last 100 Dragon Ball Z games

Dragon Ball Z, despite having been out of production for two decades, has been rekindled with a HI-Def remaster, and three games released at once.  Attack of the Sayians is the DS release, which for about the fourteenth or fifteenth time recounts the...

When one considers Dragon Ball Z, thoughts of excessive grunting, seizure-inducing special effects, and poor animation bogged down by countless filler episodes come to mind. In the gaming realm, this translates to numerous fighting games over a broad...

Straying from the mold, Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans is a solid adaptation of the high flying, explosive action for the RPG genre. While it's not a perfect game by any means, it's quite possibly the best Dragon Ball Z game to date.

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans Review

 

If there is a game that is based on a movie or an anime, the majority of them are usually flops. The Dragon Ball series is one of the classic animes that is still popular and many games are still being made based of the series. When it comes to Dragon...

I wouldn't say that Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans is bad, because it's not. It is actually an interesting RPG that first caught my attention, but as I was nearing the end, I got bored with it due to the fact that I've seen the anime before and I...

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans- DS

 

Take one of the most recognizable Manga and anime series and have it fused with a turn-based RPG. The result is…Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans for the DS. For the first time ever in North America, the world famous Dragon Ball Z series arrives in...

While Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans is by no means ground breaking, it does serve as a bit of salt and pepper to the turn-based RPG. It adds a little spice to the genre and makes it better while being simple at the same time. People who are new...

Making the transition from the traditional fighting game of past Dragon Ball Z games to a role-playing game on the DS, Attack of the Saiyans is a worthwhile attempt that actually works

Making the transition from the traditional fighting game of past Dragon Ball Z games to a role-playing game on the DS, Attack of the Saiyans is a worthwhile attempt that actually works. If anything, this game serves as the perfect introduction to the...

Not exactly what fans would call "Super Saiyan," but certainly good enough.

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans

 

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans is the first ever Dragon Ball Z RPG. You take up the role as Goku and the most of the other Z fighters right after they defeated evil King Piccolo all the way up until the Vegeta saga. There is a lot of focus on...

An RPG might seem like an odd fit for a DBZ game, but it actually is more of a perfect fit than you'd think. Sure, there are the epic battles and spectacular displays of power but between all that were a bunch of filler episodes that advance character...

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans

 

I've never seen more than part of one episode of Dragon Ball Z, and the only thing I could say for certain about it was that I had no idea what was going on. I turned my nose up at it. Yet Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans ended up being a real...
