Great Dragon Ball Z RPG that's well worth checking out.

Recent Dragon Ball games haven't been all that great, but this RPG fom last year is really good, the last RPG I played was Pokemon Red....yeah, a long while ago, the reason why I stay away from these kind of games is simply...they take so long to complete, and I don't have the time and when I start playing I get hooked, and that's exactly what happened here, I played for up to 8 hours a day, which is really something I never do, but that means I liked the game, of course I also love Dragon Ball, one of the best, if not the best anime series of all time. This game follows the Saiyan arc up until Vegeta's defeat, which means no Trunks, Frieza or any of the other characters that appeared in the following seasons. However, one secret boss is quite puzzling, seeing as he never appeared in the series, only in the movies. This is a very basic RPG, but like any good game in the genre, it has some depth, countless items to find and stats to upgrade. The game looks nice, and the voices are all in japanese, so that's great, I prefer the original voices by far.

The pacing is good, though I had to spend quite some time training to get better stats, but that was only for the optional secret boss fight. Speaking f which, spoiler alert, the secret boss is Broly, yeah, like him or not, he's in it, and he is easily the toughest enemy in the game, which is a problem since I think you have to defeat him before the final boss, which means you train, you get, I don't know, 70-80 or more in stats, defeat him, now, Vegeta is a complete pushover. Anyway, defeating Broly is probably the biggest achievment in the game. The frequent rate of random enemy encounters can be a bit annoying, especially when you have to backtrack into territories with weak enemies late into the game, because they will not give you many points to add to your stats, but you can get an item that makes random encounters less frequent. One area has enemies appearing seemingly every step you take, but that area at least rewards you with plenty of points. Bottom line, I had fun playing Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans, fans of the series or fans of RPG's in general should consider checking it out.
