DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF Z on PlayStation 3 is based on the hugely popular Japanese anime and manga series. Missions are based on Dragon Ball Z’s many different story arcs, called sagas, and each saga has its own set of missions set across 13 stages. Take part in team battles, match up certain characters and play through earth-shuddering moments from the Dragon Ball universe – each of which adds a unique twist to the original anime and manga stories.
The fast-paced, over-the-top action is complemented by superb cel-shaded graphics, voice acting and excellent sound effects that bring the distinctive characters and battles to life. One nice touch is that as you unlock each of the 60 missions, a special tree diagram shows you how they fit in with the anime and films, so you won’t be lost if you’re a newcomer.
Another great option is the Play Log, which keeps track of your in-game statistics such as your mission progress, medals earned, your quickest mission-completion time, which character you prefer to use the most and how many times you’ve been knocked out with each character. You can use this impressive stats tracker to fine-tune and improve your fighter.
