I haven't played it, but I have played most of ArtDink's other games. It's not going to be a fighter. Basically, it's a DBZ "mod" of their battle engine, which was originally designed for mech combat (first Gundam, then Macross)--though they also used it to make a pretty cool action/flight combat/RPG thing last year.

Basically, it's a "3D action combat" game. It's a hard genre to describe because it really doesn't exist in the West. Competitively, the game is built around 4v4 combat, but the engine is capable of involving much larger numbers of enemies (in single player, obviously). If anything, I'd say it will be more similar to something like Ace Combat. You have a number of ranged and melee attacks, various special attacks, a dodge move and a boost move, and fight by locking on to enemies.

There's also a degree of item interaction, too (in the engine). You can pick stuff up and move them (which has a lot of potential for stuff with dragonballs) and can help allies. The last game also introduced a lot of item usages--like healing items, weapon items, buff and debuff items, etc.

Basically, it's going to be a really fun action combat game. If you go into it expecting a fighter, you're going to be disappointed--because it's not a fighter. At all.

So far it's like tenkichi games, that was just the tutorial level. Not like Dynasty warriors at all. It's free roam stages and allows multiplayer.

Is like an arena fighter with multiple enemies, dnt rlly like it, prefer the one v one battles

Just make Budokai 4 already. Keep Budokai 3's ENTIRE gameplay foundation (especially Dragon Arena, and the Level Up system), Add all DBZ + GT characters, and you have my money.

Everything else I'm passing on.

Why can't they make a good fighting game? LIKE A BUDOKAI 4 perhaps burst limit was the closet thing we got to a amazing dbz to bad there's not Burst limit 2 anytime soon.
