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.
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.
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.
