Description official descriptions

The animated cartoon comes to life. Gohan, a powerful young boy, has been kidnapped and it's up to you as his father Goku, to find him and destroy those who wish to harm his son.

The game follows an RPG style, with battle elements designed similarly to the style of the cartoon, with fireballs, quick moves and more. As the story progresses, you will learn more about the history of the cartoon, meeting a collection of crazy characters and fighting one-on-one battles over long distances as well as close combat. The ten hour quest will take you to Master Roshi's Island, throughout Earth and beyond. Plus an in-game clock keeps tabs on your time limit to complete the game.

Just One Word:No

The Good
It is hard to find anything good about the game. However, after thinking about it, it DID sound cool following the DBZ story line and DID sound cool being Goku. I guess the one thing good about it is it showing some clips from the show.

The Bad
This is also hard because there is so much about it the totally SUCKS. Lets start trying to get everything down. 1) The combat system really, really, REALLY sucks. All you do is throw a punch and do some stupid kai attacks. You don't even get to fight in the air. The game is really simple because of the kai attacks. Just stand back, charge up, and the shoot. 2)No AI:The enemy does nothing to try to fight you. All they do is running about and do something random towards you. You don't even have to try if you want to beat them. 3)Lousy Sound:It is the same sound over and over and over........... 4)Short:I can beat the game in one sitting. In my opinion, if you give the option of saving then you shouldn't be able to start a new game after breakfast and be done by lunch. 5)Game to Show sucks:It follows the basic story line short of, but thats it. You don't get into any good talk out of the NPCS. 6)Expensive:$39 for this rubbish that appears as if they only had 20 people working on it...wait...I think they do 7)Once played, you want to burn:Lets put it like this, it is games like this one that promotes violence.....violence in wanting your money back and destroying it. After I was finish with the game I just wanted to go rampaging because it sucked so bad(and I wasted money on it)

The Bottom Line
This game sucks. It bites. It is the worst piece of trash to of come into my house. Do not buy it. Boycott it. Do something to get it of the racks. Do not buy this game at all unless you intend on destroying it.

It could be better......

The Good
That it was the first DBZ game released in the US. The gameplay was really good and it followed the storyline to the exact point. Also the ability to use different attacks instead of just Ki Blasts.

The Bad
That the story didn't go past the Frieza Saga because it would have been a lot more interesting. I was also disappointed that you didn't get to fight with anyone else other than Goku.

The Bottom Line
A game you would if your an RPG, fighting, or just a DBZ fan.

The Good
This is my favorite Dragonball Z game ever! Honestly, I love it even more than the latest Dragonball Z game I have! I think my favorite part is the music. I love Namek with the little Namekians and I even wrote a book after the Namek in this game, giving names to each of the Nameks there. (Dedan: the child Namek in the most western house, Jedael: the adult Namek outside that house, Charon: the oldest Namek who asks you to save the trees, Tertius: the Namek inside the house Charon is next to, Quartus: the adult Namek farthest east, and Peleg: the child Namek in the house with most of its roof broken off.) I love the old wise man's house, and I wish that was in the Dragonball Z TV show. This game was the very first introduction to Dragonball Z I had and it came free with my brother's Gameboy.

The Bad
I can't be Piccolo, and it has a rather short plot.

The Bottom Line
If you prefer exciting battle games, this is not the one for you. However, if you appreciate good music and have a great imagination; if you love to make your avatar sit in a glade with two squirrels, rest in a mystical wise man's house, or explore an ancient temple on Namek, then get this game! It's wonderful!
