Gamezone writes: "It's safe to say that Dragon Ball Z is a well-known commodity here in the United States. Not only are there legions of devout followers, but there are countless amounts of people being introduced to the series today as if the series just debuted. Premiering in the states after the series concluded its seven year run in Japan, Dragon Ball Z arrived in 1996 and has create tidal waves of interest in the anime genre for millions. Now, in 2008, Atari continues to reel off the success of Dragon Ball Z with its eighth game in the fighting genre titled Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit.
Having ignored the DBZ series ever since its rise to fame and opting to watch shows that favored adventure over action such as Inuyasha and Rurouni Kenshin, Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit proved to be a wonderful surprise for this skeptic. Having lost my faith in the continuing decline of the fighting genre, I have found some hope of where it could go."
