4 out of 5 eggsFun Experience!

Pros: This is a fun romp through the Dragon Ball universe. The graphics are nicely done and very faithful to the anime series, as are voices. The story follows that of the series almost word for word. Many of the cut-scenes between levels will be familiar to fans.

The game mechanics are solid. Controller buttons are easily remapped. The combat system is easy to pick-up and fun, although extremely minimal.

There's actually a decent variety of enemies, though by the end it will feel like you've fought them each a thousand times. The bosses can be challenging, forcing you to focus on timing and balancing your offense and defense. This challenge is offset by infinite continues, which let you battle the bosses over and over (and over) until you get it right.

Cons: Content-wise, this game is pretty shallow. All the levels feel the same. The combat system consists of two combos (which don't work on bosses) and two special moves (Kamehameha and a crouching uppercut, which you will never use on normal enemies). There is no experience/level-up system, except for the health meter upgrades, which don't add much to the gameplay.

There isn't much replay value here. Other than the story, the main thrust of the game seems to be a collection quest. Hidden throughout each level are chests with random items from the DB world. But collecting them has zero impact on the game, other than to earn you more money, which also has zero impact on the game (see below).

There's an unfortunate disconnect between the difficulty of the bosses and the drones. You can defeat every enemy in the level with mindless button mashing. The bosses require an entirely different strategy that the game hasn't prepared you for, and that can be a little frustrating.

Other Thoughts: The gameplay is essentially a side-scrolling platformer in 3D (think Super Paper Mario or a modern-day Double Dragon/Bad Dudes). There's no open-world exploration, but you are free to move around within levels. After each level you get a letter grade assigned based on time, number of combos, remaining health, continues used, etc. The higher the grade, the more money you get. You also collect money throughout each level by smashing boxes and killing enemies. The money can be used to buy all sorts of DB paraphernalia (pictures, audio clips, video clips) that have no impact on the game. Money can also be used to buy a health meter upgrade that is unlocked after each world is completed. You can replay levels to improve your grade and earn more money, but there isn't much point. You can finish each level with a 'C' and easily afford the power-up. Which makes the whole grading/money thing pretty pointless.

I'm a huge Dragon Ball fan, so this is a close 4 eggs for me.
