DBZ Sagas is a Action/Adventure game that I do not exactly enjoy for the most part. This game is just a repeatative, tidious, short and buggy game, that you can finish in hours. This game is not worth even renting, not even if you are a hardcore DBZ fan, still, don't buy this game.
This game will make you dispise DragonBall with a passion, because this game is quite horrible.
Good: The game includes many different combinations of attacks that can be made on an enemy, pressing different buttons varies the moves that are initiated. This game has upgrades, which allows you to gain new moves, and new abillities, or just straight out makes you attacks stronger. This abillity to fly can be great to travel without having to fight monsters or trying to run away. The charging of blasts makes it so your attack is stronger, powering up also allows you to regain your ki power. The teleporting feature can be quite useful in troublesome situations. It can help you gain acsess to enemies in a much quicker way. You can aslo teleport while powering up a blast, and shooting it behind the enemie's back to create a quick and easy attack.
Bad: It is too easy to discover different bugs/glitches while playing this game. After commiting different combos, your character freezes for a split second, which can get annoying and troublesome. The flying is good, but it still has some bad factors, such as: you can't fly up or down, you have to jump from a high area, to fly high, which is very weird, I never remembered in the anime, when characters had to jump high in the air, then start flying. Sometimes, the boundaries are too small, you would be figting and out of nowhere, you hit a wall, which can be irritating at times. Other problems, like when you teleport behind an enemy, you just get hit automatically, not having enough time to recooperate.
The thing that reallys bugs me, are the SSJ transformations, which only lasts for about 45 seconds. SSJ is basically the heat of the game, but then it's nothing, and it doesn't even activate that much of a boost, in any way. Sometimes when fighting bosses, you can't make damage unless you are a SSJ, and it takes about forever to fill up your SSJ gauge, and it's not even worth filling up in the first place. Throughout the whole game, your button mashing your way through poorly made story lines.
The fact of unlocking characters is good, but on that note, there ins't a point of unlocking characters, because you can't do much with them, conisdering that there is not a VS. mode. I have no idea of what Atari was thinking about, when they made this game. I know every one says this, but there is basically no other way to say it.
The team mode can be fun at times, but when your teammate is charging his/her beam, the screen freezes, it's annoying when you are busy beating up monsters, and out of nowhere, the screen freezes, then you have to wait until the blast in launched to keep playing.
The graphics are very horrible indeed, it does not even compare to Boudakai 1 I am afraid.
This bosses are way too difficult/strong to beat, even when easy mode is activated, the bosses are still hot headed and beam spamming.
Overall: 4.7, because I am a hardcore DBZ fan.
