Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo is a good way to introduce younger gamers to Dragon Ball, but don't hope for anything more than that from Revenge. The game follows the adventures of a very young Goku, starting with his fight against the Red Ribbon...

Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo comes as something of a blast from the distant past for series fans – all the way back, in fact, to the very beginning of the original Dragon Ball series. We're talking before super saiyans, the Androids, the World...

Finally I can choose which language I want to hear, and appreciate the damn thing on its own merits as originally intended! Take that, you lousy dubbers ; Well animated, and matches the style of the anime ; It’s not all about fights, constipated...

Fights are too easy…in fact, the entire game is too easy ; and short ; It’s not what Dragon Ball gamers were expecting, by a long shot

Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo is actually an entertaining change from the usual Wii fare. While not overly tough or deep, the game is enjoyable on its own level, and that’s what really counts in the end. The focus is on a point in the Dragon...

Goku is back with another adventure. This time we go kid friendly with the Wii. Come in to see my thoughts on the game.

With every medium franchises usually drop in quality with each subsequent release, when that becomes a multimedia yearly event, that drop off becomes exponential. This isn't universal; occasionally you will find something unexpected in the rubble pile....

Solid old-school platforming ; Manages to keep the spirit of the anime while imbuing the game with a new spirit

Fighting mode is pointless and hard to control

Considering that 360 and PS3 owners are playing yet another over the shoulder fighting title, I don’t think Namco-Bandai is learning anything. They just managed to get lucky and make a unique title in a franchise that is so far past dead that even its...

Revenge of King Piccolo is more successful as a Dragon Ball primer than as an actual fighting game.

Easy intro to Dragon Ball brawlers for the very young ; Japanese language track

Far too simple ; Half-baked Versus mode

Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo

 

A simple beat-'em-up that seems perfect for kids but too forgiving and straightforward for die-hards.

There’s nothing wrong with a good beat-em-up, and that’s exactly what Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo is. Combining classic 2D style arcade brawling with a simple fighting game mechanic for added two player support, Wii’s latest Dragon Ball game...

Review: Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo (Nintendo Wii)

 

Aside from Goku constantly crying out and grunting, the voice acting for the cut scenes is top notch. Again, I haven't seen too many of the Dragon Ball episodes, but the characters that carry over to the later stories are all here. Bulma, Yajirobe,...

Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo is by no means a bad game, but it isn’t a great game either. For fans of the series, or those looking for a lighter platforming brawler, I can happily recommend it. The graphics are good, shading towards great in...

Insert requisite balls joke here.

Classic character designs; Colorful world

Repetitive, generic beat-'em-up gameplay; Pared-down versus mode; Nonsensical storyline; Light on content

Playing ball on a different court.

I must say that I wasn't expecting to be surprised by this game. Thinking it was nothing more than another console fighting game, I wasn't really expecting much at all. However, as happens many times in my career as a critic, I was happily surprised...

Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo for the Wii has all the right moves but falls flat when it comes to the enemies and the lack of real innovation

Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo for the Wii has all the right moves but falls flat when it comes to the enemies and the lack of real innovation. The repetitive action in the solo game mode makes for a boring brawler despite a good Dragon Ball...
