And this is why I think this game might not be that good: Nothing feels unique. None of the characters available feels special or have something that makes them uniquely them. You can play Goku the exact same way as Vegeta or Gohan. Majin Buu might be a little bit different because of his larger sprite and slower movements, but that's about it. Nothing about any of these characters make them stand out or play differently, which is a death sentence for a fighting game. All Fighting games are about characters who have very different play styles and strategies facing off against each other in a test of player skill and knowledge about the tools each character has available to them. Here it feels like everyone has been made using the same mold and it comes out boring that way. Maybe the full game is going to unique character, I mean it is Dragon Ball, there is a small nation's worth of characters to choose from (even if half of them are going to be different versions of the same people). But as a first impression, Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoken really didn't impress me, which is a shame because the 3DS could use more Fighting games. I mean, right now it's just ports of other games and Smash Bros. But to be fair, Smash Bros does cover a lot of needs.
Until Next Time.
