With such spectacular graphics one shouldn't expect great sound. This is the GBA, nobody expects great sound anyway. You'll hear some grunts, smacks and explosion with a sprinkling of music from the cartoon series. As I've mentioned the graphics are great and really do the cartoon series justice. In fact I think the graphics look better on the GBA. At least the animation is smoother and not jerky like traditional anime. If you've always wanted to own a Dragon Ball game this is the one to get. Word!

On the whole, Dragon Ball GT: Transformation is a solid beat-'em-up and one of the better Dragon Ball video games available for the GBA.

Dragon Ball GT: Transformation is a really decent beat 'em-up game. It is a shame that the developers didn’t include a co-op mode, which this game screams for it. If you are a fan of this series, then you will enjoy this game.

Dragon Ball GT: Transformation is a mediocre game that would be much better with more polish in the gameplay department. If the levels had some variety, the backgrounds were a little more inspired and there were simply more interactive objects and enemies, this game would score much higher, it would play much better, and overall be a lot more fun. However, as it stands, the game is a little too repetitive and the only reply value is for those dedicated gamers who will collect enough Zenie to unlock all of the secrets. For the average gamer looking for simple fun or the hardcore Dragon Ball fan, this game will be a hit. For the rest of us, we can only hope that the sequel sees some improvements.

A good player can wrap this game up in just under three hours, which definitely makes it a tough sell to all but the hardcore fans. But for fans, the experience is short and oh-so sweet, and the unlockable content -- additional characters like Super Saiyan 4 Goku and Super Saiyan Vegeta -- is sure to make it worthwhile.

Worth Playing
Dragon Ball GT: Transformation tries to be a playable game; it tries so very hard. For the most part, it succeeds, but slippery control, merely average graphics, and short playtime leave this one to be a rental at best. If you're a diehard Dragon Ball GT fan, feel free to look for this one used, as paying full price for this game seems a bit too much to ask. If you do manage to get a copy of Transformation, however, for the love of all that is good, please, please play it with the sound off. The rest of the world will thank you for it.

Fun game, but it all depends on how you play it. If you have friends with the game, and if you know and enjoy the Dragonball series then you've found yourself one of the most complete and enjoyable Dragonball titles available. However, if you're someone with little or no knowledge of the Dragonball GT events, and you lack any significant friends, then the experience is hardly worth the trouble – it’s probably recommended to try out one of the Legacy of Goku titles.

While the opening moments offer that small glimmer of hope that someone finally recaptured the joy of Ninja Turtle and X-Men arcade games, those dreams are quickly crushed. The developer has the right idea, just not the proper way to execute it. This is a flawed title that will only grab DBZ fans long enough to play through it once.

"Dragon Ball GT: Transformation" é mais um daqueles games escorados no sucesso da obra original, esperando triunfar apenas por ostentar o título de um desenho famoso. O que se vê é um produto mal-acabado em diversos aspectos, sem nenhum equilíbrio na inteligência artificial dos inimigos. Talvez os fãs radicais consigam esquecer esses problemas e superar todos os defeitos do game, que, talvez, até poderia ter sido agradável se a produtora tivesse dedicado mais atenção. Quem sabe, façam isso na próxima oportunidade.

This game is fun for about the first… oh, let me think… five minutes? That sounds about right. After that you are either going to get bored and quit, or force yourself to beat the game as a matter of pride. There is really nothing here to get addicted to. As mentioned, there are a ton of side scrolling fighters out on the market, and plenty of them are far more entertaining and addictive than this one. Hell, just look at the original River City Ransom. Now that was a side scrolling fighter done right! And it was for the original Nintendo! You’d think that fifteen years later we’d be able to trump that game, but it still holds up today. And I can tell you now, Dragon Ball GT is not going to be the one to give it a run for its money.

C’est bien triste, mais il faut reconnaître que Dragon Ball GT : Transformation est mauvais et à éviter. Proposant des personnages rigides aux palettes de coups minuscules et qui se battent contre des ennemis identiques, le tout sur des musiques insupportables, ce jeu est un des plus beaux exemples des adaptations ratées du manga d’Akira Toriyama. Triste et décevant, d’autant plus que le studio de développement Webfoot nous avait habitués à des expériences bien plus réussies.
