Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Game

So there is another DBZ game coming out for current gen consoles called Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z. I’ve seen a couple different game play videos for it and I have mixed feelings. So far none of the DBZ games within the last 10 years have been anything extra special except for possibly Budokai 2. I don’t think the developers really care what the fans want to see because the trend seems to be take good aspects of their games and then trade them out for other good aspects in the sequels. Nothing good ever stays consistent and there always seems to be some sort of trade off for the things we want.

I really love the idea of being able to have multiple characters to battle with at once. It’s cool that you can play the Z fighters and fight with Cell or Frieza but I hope that you can switch back and forth between characters any time you want. Also it would be nice to be able to be the bad guys and fight against 4 Z fighters at once. Some of the game play footage that I’ve seen looks a bit chaotic which makes me think that this is going to be another mediocre game that has good elements but falls short in the overall experience.

As far as the character roster goes (which might be the most important part of the game) there will be no GT characters and that could be good or bad depending on how you feel about GT. However, a screen cap I saw (that I can’t find anymore) showed 75 character slots with most of them filled with question marks. This would be great news if I hadn’t seen like 5 slots already filled up with the different forms of Frieza. Also, I don’t know if it will go all the way to the Buu saga and contain movie characters or stop at Cell like some of the previous games did. Again, it seems like more trade offs instead of being able to actually transform your character and have a full list of playable characters that spans the entire DBZ saga.

I guess it remains to be seen how this game will turn out and if it will be worth picking it up upon it’s release. I am a huge Dragon Ball Z fan and hope this game is finally the satisfying experience that us fans have been waiting so long for, but only time will tell. Anyways, check out this game play trailer and let us know your thoughts. Leave your comments below or hit us up on our Facebook Page!
