Buu Yuu Retsuden Label

DBZ: Buu Yuu Retsuden

System: Sega Mega Drive
Release Date: April, 1994

Game Description:
Choose from Piccolo, Trunks, Vegita, Kuririn, Gohan, Goku, No. 18, Freeza, Perfect Cell, Ginew, or Recoom and fight to face your destiny. This game features the famous split-screen action of Super Butoden fame, along with plenty of characters and fighting locales.

Game Review:

This game has some really cool aspects to it. For example, it's the only 16-bit DBZ fighting game to have Kuririn, Ginew, and Recoom as playable characters. Some of the scenery is interesting, such as Namek. Best of all, you can play through the entire game in story mode as any one of the characters, good or bad, and the ending and characters you fight along the way change accordingly. For example, if you choose to be Cell, you win the game by defeating Gohan and destroying the world.

The game supports a 6 button controller, but still suffers from the same things every other Genesis fighting game does: the movement is slow, the play control is sloppy, the graphics are fuzzy, the music is poor, and the voices sound like the characters are speaking through a kazoo. After playing for just a short while, your fingers become terribly sore from the frustrating controls. However, I think they've done just about as much as they could with the Genesis hardware, and it's as good as you could expect a fighting game to be on the Genesis.
