DBZ Gaiden: Plan to Destroy the Saiyajin

System: Famicom
Release Date: August, 1992

Game Description:
Follow Goku and the rest of the gang in an original plot designed just for this game! Split the team up and search the world while battling computer opponents, or battle your friends in the Tenkaichi Budokai mode.

Game Review:

The frustration of the battles is greatly reduced in this game over the previous entries in the series. In battle, you choose 3 of your available cards, which are then played out in RAPID succesion. Most of the repetitive animation has been sped up to a tolerable point, which also makes the game more fun to watch because the characters are zooming around just like in the show.

It's kind of an unusual game, as the plot doesn't actually take place in the show or the comic, and it's difficult to tell what's going on and what you are supposed to be doing, but that's clearly just me and my language barrier again.

Even though many improvements have been made, this game is about as different from its predecessors as Mega Man 6 is from Mega Man 2. After a point, you can't remember which ones you've played because they follow the same formula.

This is the final Dragon Ball game for the Famicom (it actually came out after the Super Famicom had been released in Japan), and that's a good thing. The Battle Card System had just about been played out.
