Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2

 

Even though my experience with the original Budokai Tenkaichi is limited, I can tell it was perfect sequel-fodder. It was a game that was fun to play, but needed a little polish. More importantly, it wouldn't have been too hard to make an improved...

Offers a nice break from the standard 2D fighter ; Graphics are nice ; Big environments create a good DBZ-like atmosphere

AI can be too smart at times and too stupid at others ; Not enough work went into the cutscenes ; Buying different games to play through the same events gets old after a while

The game itself isn’t horrible, and if it was anything but a Dragon Ball Z game I’d be a lot less critical of it, but DBZ games have been following the same formula and forcing you to play through the same events over and over again for a long time...

One wouldn?t be lying to say that Dragon Ball Z is a phenomenon. Running from 1989 to 1995 in Japan (and then having a highly successful, seemingly never ending run in North America), DBZ is a series that will consistently grab new generations. Taking...

When it comes down to it, Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is a great game for the fans. Bringing in so many playable characters (some even being fusion forms of characters never seen in the show) and offering up a good amount of play modes, DBZBT2 is...

Some games - no, most games - are created with a defined audience in mind. Front Mission 4 is for those that like big stompy mechs and slow, tactics-based game play. Final Fantasy XII is for gamers with an insane need to beat a boss with 50,000,000,000...

Like a pesky fly that doesn't know when to leave you alone, Atari has ushered in yet another Dragon Ball Z game. This time we find our favorite Japanese Animated heroes on the Nintendo Wii in the port of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2. While this...

Overall Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is a good incarnation to the series. Despite this being the same game released on other consoles months and months ago, it can be a fun way to play if you are into swinging your arms around. If you prefer a...

Games based on existing intellectual properties have the opportunity to succeed on two distinct levels. By staying true to the source material, they can offer longstanding fans a chance to step into the shoes of their beloved heroes. Additionally, by...

Overall:By taking a comprehensive approach to its source material, Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 presents a package that true fans will most likely appreciate. Unfortunately, highly repetitive gameplay makes the title unlikely to offer any long-term...

Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 Review

 

'I am stronger than you are!' 'No, I am strogner than you are!' And then the two guys start screaming and powering up, and there's a lot of fighting. Yes folks, that's my summary of the craziness that is Dragon Ball Z. But despite that, it makes a...

great graphics, easy-to-learn battle moves, customization

repeitive in a few areas

Atari, this one's a winner.

Kaaa-me... HAAA-ME... huh..??

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 has a lot of gameplay potential, tons of unlockable characters, and a variety of play modes. It also is submerged in the sometimes-confusing depths that is the Dragon Ball Z license, which makes the make-or-break...

Like the PS2 version, but with a Wii Remote. Should you pick up this Dragon Ball?

Wii controls are authentic; massive amount of DBZ content; the giggle-inducing fun combining the two makes

Still not a very deep fighting system; the Wii controls flail in spots; won't convert DBZ haters

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 review for the PS2

 

My game is fight!

Looks good; Awesome moves

Confusing instructions; Characters all play the same; Loading screen of doom

Maybe I'm not the smartest kid on my block, or maybe I just haven't watched enough cartoons. Or, heck, maybe I'm too old. But for whatever reason, I had a really hard time figuring out a lot of Dragon Ball Z : Budokai Tenkaichi 2. To be honest, though,...
