Dragonball Z is an Anime about Goku & how he always manages to defeat whatever evil comes to Earth.
2. About The Game.
Dragonball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2 The entire series of DBZ. I also has contents from some of the DBZ Movies. It contains Sagas Evil Androids, Cell, & Majin Buu. The game just about all the characters from the Sagas I named & appearences from movie characters. Some of the characters are Goku (also in SS form), Gohan(also in SS2 form), Adult Gohan, Krillin, Vegeta(also in SS form), Gotenks(also in SS3 form), Cell form 2(also in Form 3), & Majin Buu(also in Super Buu form). The game has Goku & Super Saiyan Goku as two different forms because one will be stronger than the other & each represent a different side of Goku & I will talk about that later in the gameplay section.
Very Basic & Easy Navigation menus. It's not flashy & complicated. It's simple & easy getting through.
This deserves a 9 because it more than a 2-D fighter. The Special attacks in this game are executed percectly. The only Special move that looks pixelated is Goku's Super Spirit bomb because it takes up half the screen. All the attack & Ultimate Specials look amazing & no glitching from what I see. Also the environments in the game looks amazing.
The sound of this game deserves an award for how clear the voices are. Yes they talk in this game. Not much but they say thier attack name & in the beginning & end of the match they say something. They also yell when they kick & punch. Goku says Kamehameha & says certain things depending on oppenent.
In Supersonic Warriors 2 all the DBZ characters have a Normaal for & a second form representing different verion of the characters. Ex. Goku is one character & SS Goku is another. Gohan then there SS2 Gohan also Adult Gohan is in the game.
SuperSonic Warriors has a Dragon Power system for it's fighters. If you Goku is DP1 (Dragon Power) & Gohan has DP1 then total Dragon Power is 2 but at the beginning of the game you have a limited amount of DP. You have to play though modes of the game to get more DP.
The game also has a 3 man tag type gameplay for all modes. In story it depends on what part of the story you are on for partners. All you have to do is tap which character you want to choose but this requires 20 EP(Energy Points which displayed @ the bottom left if you are doing single player).
This game adds more fun to it by allowing you to execute 2 & 3 man team attacks & allowing support. If you play a match as Goku & Gohan(Adult) they can do a team Kamehameha to inflict more damage & possibly K.O. the oppenent but this requires the Max 200 EP. Support can be usefull because it allows the extra charatcers for support to help you out by healing, attacking & pull off team attcks. Some examples of support characters & thier team attacks are Zarobon & Dodoria(same) have a team attack with Frieza. Dende heals you but has no team attack. Adround 16 & 17 have a double attack with Android 18. There a limited amount to using support but can be raised up a little bit once you play through the game.
Last thing. there section of the game sora like a command list for eah characters that let's you know how to execute each attack that you unlock in story mode.
The game has 6 Modes
VS. Battle-I haven't experience Multiplayer yet.
Practice/Tutorial-Teaches you the controls, How to transform, how to use energy attacks & how to execute normal energy attacks & special energy attcks.
Story-Keeps you going for a long time. It gives you a story line for each character in the game & this also helps unlock more characters & more attacks for you characters.
Z-Battle-Lets you play against a set amount of fighters to see if you can defeat them.
Maximun mode-Contains Novie lvl,Hard lvl, & Manis lvl. This mode tests your skill to see if you have what it takes to defeat hard computer fighters.
Free Battle-This mode lets you try out what skills you've got against the computer.
4. Personal Thoughs
As a DBZ fan I am satisfied with what this game offers & how it all comes together.
5. Closing Arguments about The Game.
Overall I think this game is a must buy for any DBZ Fan like myself. It stars most fan favorite characters. This game but be no better unless it could be in full 3-D but I having it in 2-D doesn't make it bad.
