Product Description

Platform:PlayStation 3

Dragonball Z: Burst Limit is the first game of the Dragonball Z series to hit the PlayStation 3 console. The game features detailed graphics and dramatic, seamless battles, expected from a next generation console. The plans are to have characters and movement reminiscent of the animation, and high-intensity battles.

During each battle, find conditions to create new dramatic scenes. After the battles, watch a unique story unfold each time you play. There is also a stronger element of offense and defense, due to added energy saving and fighting techniques. Features:

  • Online Feature - Competition grows with the ability to play online in both the co-op and vs. modes.
  • Unique DBZ Story -During each battle, find conditions to create new scenes and watch a unique story unfold at the end of each game.
  • Higher Quality Gaming - Experience visuals and movement reminiscent of the anime due to Z3 shading technology and detailed effects.
  • High Intensity battles - Increased speed of charge and release on the field, free movement around the field, and increased speed and power of attacks.
  • Energy - Use of special skills will no longer drain energy. The lower your energy, the stronger you get, making for a possible turnaround of the battle.
  • Fatal Blow - Each character in the game has their own "Fatal Blow". If the player successfully attacks his opponent, this would be a finishing move, but if not, it will put the player in the disadvantageous situation, and he must battle with no "Fatal Blow" for the rest of the battle.

Yes, the game is fun. Yes, it looks very pretty. But unfortunately, the game is way too short, only covering up to the Cell Saga, and then it doesn't even cover all the events taking place up to that. I think only the Saiyan Saga is fully covered, but the rest are not. You don't fight Dodoria or Zarbon, and only two members of the Ginyu appear; only androids #16, 17, and 18 show up; no Cell Jr... I think you get the point. I am fine with actually having less playable characters, but not at the expense of playing through all battles in the series.

As far as gameplay goes, i like the controls. I actually use the analog stick to move the characters. Takes a little getting used to the fact that you can't charge up your Ki, game does it for you. Drama Pieces was a nice little touch, but they should give you the option of turning them off on story mode, cause they don't really add anything spectacular, and many times it throws off your whole momentum when the fight stops to show you a little 5 second scene.

Overall, its worth a rental, not a full price purchase.

What did they do to my precious DBZ fighting game series?

Okay, it looks beautiful. I will admit that. I've heard people say "It's so nice looking that it looks like your are controlling the Anime itself". Well, the graphics actually blow the decade old animation out of the water. It would be nice to see the series re-done using this level of animation.

And the positive reviews stop here. I'm an avid fan of the DBZ series. Esepcially so when it comes to the Budakai Tenkaichi series. I own 1, 2 and 3. Burst Limit is to the DBZ fighting series or games as a one legged grey hound is to dog racing.

I am not sure if they dumbed it down for younger kids, if they just wanted to try something new, or just were too worried about the "pretty face" of the game.

The DBZ: BT series is known for being high-speed, fast-paced, all over the screen action. Burst Limit just shoved 6 metric tons of lead down everyones undergaments. I am used to "rushing" and "dragon homing". Now I get Goku floating across the screen at speeds that would have him paced by balloons at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The controls have definitely been dumbed down. It's really just a matter of "wait till my Ulimate Attack powers up....and fire" system. There's crap for variety.

At most, I would reccomend this game as a rental. I'll be selling mine very shortly.

I'm not an expert on gameplay, but I have a great time actually playing it. It has pretty simple controls, and game mechanics. I've only had this game for about two weeks, but I'm doing pretty well in Very Hard mode, earning a Z rating on all levels so far except for one level (fighting that bastard Frieza!!!). The reason fans dump on this game is that it is more like a fighting game than a DBZ simulator like the Tenkaichi series. I personally find playing fighting game style to be a little more fun. However, one significant advantage that the Tenkaichi series has over this game is the character roster. Tenkaichi has a glorious amount of cool characters, while this one only has about 26 (I think). The game as you probably know only goes up to the Cell Saga and only features 2 characters from the movies that take place during this timeline. It also has a lot of repeated animation, which leads to the idea that this game may have been rushed. Maybe if we'd gotten a sequel to the game like the Budokai, Tenkaichi, and Raging Blast series, we could have gotten more characters, but that seems unlikely right now. Having less characters to unlock shortens the lifespan of a game that you've paid around 30 bucks for. This game also looks gorgeous. All character models and backgrounds look great. There are other modes to play, but you can play most of these fights anyway in versus mode. Time attack, would've been more fun if you had a time limit instead of getting a time for the leaderboards. I said there is a lot of repeated animation in cutscenes, but everything moves smoothly no matter how many times it's repeated. Overall if you like DBZ, you should enjoy this game. I just wish there were more characters, and in essence a longer campaign. Let there be a Burst Limit 2!

Before I say anything I want make it clear that this is coming from a DBZ fan, not so much a fighting game fan.

Burst Limit is good depending on what you are looking for. The game has very nice graphics, and decent animation, but lacks in the sound department. Stages are bland and uncreative, serving only as backdrops for the fights. As a fighting game Burst Limit works fairly well. The battle system is fast, nicely balanced, and plays out better than previous installments, but it is far from perfect. While characters have some variety, they all play mostly the same, and share many of the same tactics. Support characters provide help in a match, but are a nuisance, and only interrupt the flow of the game. There are also certain exploits that break the balance of some characters, making them cheap. The story mode is not bad, but for some reason it only goes half-way through Dragonball Z, ending at the Cell Saga. Notably, the story isn't actually made clear either, and people seem to be fighting for no apparent reason. This means anyone unfamiliar with the story will likely be lost. The online is okay, but very buggy. The frame-rate often drops below 30fps in a match because of bad connections. Also, if one person quits, the match is canceled and no one gets victory. This becomes a problem when you are fighting a jerk that doesn't want to lose.

All in all, Burst Limit feels uncompleted, doesn't serve the DBZ fan-base, and doesn't do a good job at being a great fighting game. Its decent fun for a little while, but feels lackluster in the long run.
