Release Date: August, 1992

Game Review:

The graphics and gameplay in this installment are leaps and bounds above the others. Its like the difference between the graphics and sound in Super Mario Bros. 1 and 3.

Many people get stuck in this game...myself included. With the language barrier there are a few tough spots, but it is playable. Action is fast and furious (for an RPG) and the battle card system has been improved even further. The addition of headshot pictures of your team during battle is nice, too.

The little grid lines that outline the number of spaces you can move on the map have been removed, which is another welcome improvement. I also think it's neat that you get to fight enemies from some of the movies (Cooler's henchmen, for example).

Yeah, it's the same treat with a sweeter coating, but it's still candy to me. Any Dragon Ball Z game is worth playing of you're a big enough fan. :)
