Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2

The good:

- Fun DBZ Game
- Fusion is enabled
- Cel Shaded graphics work well with it
- Better Characters

The bad:

- Story really sucked
- Some parts were too easy
- Should have been longer

Summary:

The second game in the legendary Dragonball Z saga, DBZ Budokai 2, isn't really all it hypes up to be. After being released a good while ago, it recieved a lot of hype just because it was yet another Dragonball Z game, but it isn't really that good to begin with.

First of all, lets start with the good things. The graphics, because it was cel-shaded, was an excellent plus when playing it. I think it fitted the game perfectly because it just overall looked better, seeing as how DBZ is a cartoon-ish game in the first place. other than that, the fighting was pretty solid. Like the first Budokai ...

The good:

-The charaters
-Fusion!!!
-Super buu abosbing
-the costome

The bad:

-Needs more levels

Summary:

This game has about everything a hard core dbz fan needs it's worth the monkey [it will be better if it was maybe 3 dollors off?]The game really has what you need attacks and i love the super spirt bomb thing,and what makes the game really really kool is that there is fusion!!! and it has mad(alot)Charaters!!!!! the attacks rock and you get all lots of costumes to pick out of [some have 3 mostly 2]this game is great for any dbz fan/fighting,and people out there that are lazy just like me they are cheats for this game it may take a while but it is worth it.This game really needs more levels...

Dragonball Z Budokai 2

The good:

The graphics have improved alot being cel-shaded.

The bad:

Once again the Breakthroughs are way to hard/boring to do.

Summary:

It's definitly an improvement to the first Budokai especialy graphics wise, I think the cel-shaded is way to cool. Also this game features fusions and super saiyan 3 Gotenks and Goku. There are way more levels and capsules to choose from too. The storyline is fun the first two or three times through but then after that it gets too repetetive and boring so getting the breakthroughs, Bulmas costumes and secret fusions are a nightmare, the storyline is basicly just a big board game too. Once again the music is ok but not brilliant. The storyline is mostly the same too but gone off course in s...

dragonball z budokai 2

The good:

great cel shading thought it was the actual cartoon plenty of characters and moves. a great fighting experiance

The bad:

not many stages and the story mode was a flop

Summary:

recomended on the platinum style and great value for the money but would buy budokai 3 instead anyday. great cel shading thought it was the actual cartoon plenty of characters and moves. a great fighting experiance.not many stages and the story mode was a flop.

its great the fact it is the official funimation voices instead of the japenese version

Sweet!

The good:

  • Graphics are a little better than normal
  • Fusions
  • New amazing powers like ""Absorb"
  • Super Saiyan 3
  • Special effect looks very nice and cool
  • Very 'Custumisable' *Speeling*

    The bad:

  • No SSJ4 or those GT characters
  • No "Create A Character" Mode - Though you can custimize a current characters powers and strength.

    Summary:

    Budokai 1 = 2/5
    Budokai 2 = 4/5
    Budokai 3 = 4.94

    =P

    This is very worth buying and the price has whent down.I recommend this game

    Edit Review - Some new DBZ Games have came.

    Sagas - 1/5
    Sparking - *Coming Soon But Currently 5/5*

    I currently reocommend you first get Sparking when it comes out then Budokai 3.No reason to get Budokai 2 if you already got 3

    I hope this was helpful, I know it wasnt much but stil

    Enjoy your game

    Dragonball

    The good:

    One of many of the good things about the second game is that the stupid cutscenes have been removed, they were all in Japanese anyway, and there are more characters like Goten, Kid Trunks and Videl. And the graphics are better than the first time around because they look more like the show and last time they looked to real to be from the show.

    The bad:

    Now the computer characers are stupider and easier to beat. I thought that Kid Buu would be a challenge but he was a simple victory, even on the hardest setting. But this is probobly because I play this game all the time so I can see how long it takes me to collect all the capsules, but to a less than average player, Kid Buu would be a challenge on a low skill level.

    Summary:

    In conclusion, Dragonball Z Budokai 2 is much better than the first one, but the computer AI could use an upgrade, but overall, Dragonball Z Budokai 2 is still one of the best fighting game out on the market this year. A must have for all Dragonball/Z/GT fanatics.
