Dragon Ball Z for Kinect Review | Vandal Online

Vandal Online: "A very poor game, only recommendable for kids who love the series and would love to throw some punches and kicks while playing as the characters they watch on TV. A video game that would not live up to the expectations set by Kinect or Dragon Ball Z."

"only recommendable for kids who love the series and would love to throw some punches and kicks while playing as the characters they watch on TV."

well, I'm sure that's exactly who it was aimed for. That's the only problem I have with reviews with IPs like this - they know who it's for, so why review it if you don't like it or review it for something it's not, which is gonna be this great kinect game to finally dust the dust off kinects worldwide.

...unless of course it just sucks. Dunno, havent tried it. If it plays anything like Marvel Avengers though, I can't see it being THAT bad

I don't think it's aimed toward kids. Most people that grew up watching DBZ back in the day are adults now. There are a TON of fans out there. This had the potential to be something really awesome, but of course ended up pretty crappy as most Move/Kinect/Wii motion controlled games are. There ARE some fantastic ones out there especially in the Wii's case. However most motion control is poorly implemented unfortunately.

Most move games have good controls but there is no standard to calibration,visit iwaggle3d on you tube to see what I'm talking aboot.

@Snookies

There is a new generation of Dragon Ball fans thanks to Nicktoons.

AWBrawler1391d ago

I was about to whip ou my list, but you corrected it and said wii has some good motion games. carry on kind sir.

Snookies121391d ago

@AWBrawler - Lol! Yes, the Wii does indeed have some fantastic motion games. It's just that they were too far and few between. I hope we'll get to see a more consistent stream of wonderful games for the Wii U. :)

Both Nicktoons and last time I checked 4kids show Dragon Ball Z Kai on their channels. So there are kids in this day and age who like Dragon Ball Z. I got 10 year old cousins who like Dragon Ball Z cause of those channels.

Shadonic1391d ago

It plays like the studios previous dbz game ultimate tenkaichi with kinect gestures that match the characters in game gestures basically IDK why people can't see this I guess it's just because of my game design studies but even then it's pretty obvious I guess that once something gets enough biased hate people throw out basic knowledge in favor of fallowing the crowed.

Getowned1391d ago

Dragon Ball kai even worth watching in I saw the original 100 times ?

I wish they made a good dbz game for once -_- .. a open world sand box dbz world own! lol

If this was reviewed from the pov of kids it should be reviewed by a child.

Something like "Little Timmy's review of DBZ for Kinect". If this game even is geared towards kids. Would think that a game where you punch and kick others shouldn't be for little children. I mean what is the age limit for the anime?

Dang Kinects having a rough year.

insomnium21391d ago

But since Kinect gets teh zales it doesn't really matter to x360-folks on this site.

Shadonic1391d ago

It matters to me as a gamer and someone striving for game design if you look at a another kinect game that incorporates the same gestures that are in this game I'm speaking about power up heroes another title more geared to children but gave a good fun experience while the reviews were more possitive check it out basically that game uses the same gestures as dbz with most of its characters yet the game works but spikes first attempt at a kinect title and it sucks this is just a sign of experience and innovation between power up heroes (ubisoft) and spike (dbz) I just hope people realize this because not all kinect titles and the device isn't always what you should blame. I mean we don't blame our consoles when games like skyrim mess up.

Everyone knew this was going to suck, if kinda funny and yet sad, and waste.
