    More Kamehameha than most enemies can handle.

    Goku, the most powerful warrior on Earth, he has the power to change history and struts his Super Saiyan power in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors.

    Packed with nonstop fighting, Supersonic Warriors offers a Story mode and four different Battle modes. The Story mode takes Goku through the Namek, Android and Majin Buu Sagas from the TV series. However, the game gives you alternate endings to these stories, giving Goku a chance to rewrite the history books. You start with the Namek Saga and can unlock the others in the Shop menu.

    Features

    • Fight as one of 15 characters
    • Uncover alternate endings to DBZ storylines
    • Two players can battle via a Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable
    • Unlock characters and difficulty level through a Shop option


    When you accomplish a goal, such as completing the Namek Saga, you get points to spend in the shop. With these points, you unlock the other two storylines and different Dragon Ball Z characters. In the shop, you can also unlock higher difficulty levels and a Dragon Ball Z museum.

    You also earn shop points by defeating all opponents in Z Battle mode. Choose either one-on-one battling or battle as a team of three. When you battle in teams, you choose your three fighters and can switch one out at any time during the battle by pressing the L Button. You win the battle when you defeat all members on the other team. Challenge mode puts you shorthanded by giving you a team of only two players to fight against a team of three. Finally, Free Battle mode lets you select both the team you'll be fighting with and members of the opposing team. Want to share the Supersonic Warriors experience with a friend? Two players can link up and battle in Link Vs. mode and fight in the way of the Saiyan.

    In addition to the story and battle modes, Supersonic Warriors comes equipped with an extensive tutorial to help you learn how to fight like a Super Saiyan and unleash the powerful Kamehameha energy attack. The fighting sequences in the game are well done. Because the characters can levitate, long-range attacks become harder to perform, especially against the quicker enemies. Don't forsake hand-to-hand combat for long-range attacks. A steady mix of both will make you a Dragon Ball Z master.

    Bottom Line

    The expansion of the Saga storylines is a nice touch, but fighting is the focus of this latest Dragon Ball Z offering.
