REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

What do these ratings mean?

I would like to introduce you to the world of Dragon Ball Z.A world of wonder and magic. A world that won't die.

Dragon Ball Z is a long running anime series from the late 80's.there are currently 18 Dragon Ball games in the U.S.You'd think that the fanboys would have died by now. But, just like Jason,they keep coming back for more.

Dragon Ball Z:Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is a fighting/adventure game based on the anime.It covers every thing from Dragon Ball Z,to Dragon Ball GT.The game contains 129 playable character(135 in the japanese Wii version.)The game has 16 large arenas,and 9 game modes.are your fanboy senses tingiling yet?

There are two main modes in this game,Dragon Adventure,and Ultimate battle Z.In Dragon Adventure,you fly around Earth and Planet Namek,completeing story event,while also collecting items,dragonballs,and new characters.Dragon Adventure also throws in a little bit of RPG'ness by throwing in Experience and levels,which make your character stronger and faster.(In case you couldn't figure it out.

Ultimate Battle Z is more of a straight-forward fighter,Where you choose a character,and a type of battle.Fights are shown on a pillar,similar to Mortal Kombat.Each pillar has a specific theme and condition.After beating a pillar,the player is rewarded with a score,items,and another pillar.

There is also a library of sorts section,where you can catch up on the Dragon Ball world.

The graphics are cell-shaded,and while it dosen't exactly match the feel of the show,it gets pretty close.

The roster for characters is quite large for a fighting game,though some of the less major characters play the same,so it dosen't exactly feel like your playing with 129 characters.

The special moves,such as the Spirit Bomb,look amazing,and are executed in a manner just like there anime counterparts.some moves can even change the environment,like the Spirt Bomb,which can turn the arena into a barren wastleland.

One flaw,though,is that the game basically comes down to two buttons,so it isn't exactly that much of a fighter.

 

All in all,this game is good,but it's fighting flaw is the one thing that keeps it from greatness
