Dragonball Z: Supersonic Warriors
I remember the first time I played this game about 6 years ago, my cousin that lives in a different state came over to visit for a week and he brought some Gameboy Advance games. When he left, I realized that he had left Dragonball Z: Supersonic Warriors at my house. I played it for hours and hours and never got tired of it. I found it on vizzed and thought I might as well play it, and it is just as great as it used to be.
This game has epic graphics for the time it was made. The Gameboy Advance wasn't meant for 3d graphics, yet when you are playing this the background moves around perfectly, creating a 3D illusion. The characters are great, and it is easy to understand what you are looking at when you see their sprite. The only problem I have is with the cut-scenes during story mode, where the characters don't move much, they just change their facial expressions. Other then that, the graphics are great for a Gameboy Advance game.
If I could rate this a 9.5, I would. The soundtrack in this game is great, the songs fit perfectly with the battles and cut-scenes. Some songs are eerie, played when you are at a destroyed, abandoned planet. Some are cheerful and epic, like when you are about to go into an intense battle. The sound effects are great, the sounds of the laser beams and Kamehameha's sound perfect, and the punches and kicks are just as good. My favorite song is probably the one played at the end of the Frieza story; try it and see for yourself ;)
This is just my opinion, but I can not stop playing this game. Usually when I am on vizzed I search around a play a few games, for 30 minutes a game at the most. I have actually played this game for a few hours straight, and it is one of my favorites on here. It may be because its a fast paced fighting game, which are hard to get bored of, especially when there are so many different characters and attacks! It beats most fighting games, because you have to maneuver much more to avoid attacks while flying instead of on solid ground. It just never gets old.
The story mode is great, with lots of characters and different ways to play. Some disadvantages are that you have to buy the stories by getting cash from beating other stories, which is fine, but after a while you run out of stories to play and you keep replaying them to unlock the next one. I would rather just have them unlock after beating certain stories, so we don't have to ever get bored of playing.
This game does have many different modes to offer, like story, multiplayer, or z battle, and much more that will keep you playing for a long time. The only bad thing is that the game focuses entirely around the fighting, like they spent so much time on that aspect they didn't want to upgrade the quality of the cut-scenes. Don't get made at me for saying this, but it's just my opinion.
This game isn't hard to learn, different combos of buttons produce different attacks. R + A or B will shoot small laser beams at the enemy, while holding R + A and B will using a special move. The move depends on where your target is, it will be different if they are above you or below you. Pressing A or B will result in a normal melee attack. If you are doing story mode, the enemies get harder and stronger every level, but so do you. It is tricky to play with a keyboard, I would definitely recommend using a PC gamepad or something that would make it easier. I use a Gigaware controller, which is perfect for playing it.
Maybe because it's nostalgic, since I grew up playing it, or just because its plain awesome, this is one of my favorite games of all time. Others maybe disagree, but on my list of Top 10 games this is probably number 6. The graphics are epic, the music is catchy, the addictiveness is beyond most fighting games, the story is decent, the depth is good. You should definitely play this game.
