The Dragon Ball Z heroes Goku, Gohan, Piccolo and more are fighting Vegeta, Frieza the Androids and Cell in Dragonball Z: Budokai for Playstation 2 (PS2) Check out Kidzworld's game review here!

Dragon Ball Z fans get off the couch and do a dance of joy! Dragon Ball Z: Budokai is here on the Playstation 2 (PS2) and it's gonna let you pick your fave warriors from the Dragon Ball Z TV show and fight it out. You can pick from Gohan, Goku, Piccolo, and other Dragon Ball Z heroes, and battle against the Dragon Ball Z villains - Cell, Frieza, the Androids, and even Vegeta. The battles are on 3-D landscapes taken from the series, all the moves are there and you can even unleash a Kamehameha!

The high-speed action of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai will glue you to your controller as soon as you start it up. The combat system is simple, fast and lets you toss Ki Attacks with the tap of a button. You can also fly around, and transform, to unleash your true hidden power in the middle of a battle!


Dragon Ball Z


If Dragon Ball Z: Budokai's has a weakness, it's that the graphics aren't so hot for a Playstation 2 game. Some of the characters are a little fuzzy and the battlegrounds could put you to sleep before you manage to clobber your opponent. The only other problem with Dragon Ball Z: Budokai is that it zips through the Dragon Ball Z story in record time. Unless you already know what's going on, you're gonna get confused.


If you're a Dragon Ball Z fan - this is the game for you. If you aren't a Dragon Ball Z fan, it's still a solid fighting game, and worth checking out.
