If you couldn’t tell from my less-than-enthused review, I really couldn’t muster up feelings either way on this game. It’s a competent fighter with nice sprite work, but it also does very little interesting with narrative presentation, combat mechanics, or gameplay modes. It all feels very safe, and I didn’t really feel much by the time I was done.
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is in an unfortunate position where the core game is kind of good, but everything surrounding it is kind of bad. If you have a friend that’s as into fighting games and Dragon Ball as you are, I could see Butoden being a worthwhile purchase. But with the lack of online play and any satisfying single-player modes it’s hard to recommend to even the most diehard enthusiasts.
The Dragon Ball related games have not always had the most depth to them and sadly Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden somewhat falls into that category. The gameplay itself is fast moving and very fluid, while also looking gorgeous on the 3DS, but the lacking character roster and cut and paste gameplay across each of them holds it back from being a really good game. Dragon Ball fans can definitely find some fun here for awhile, especially with the large selection of Z Assists that span the entire franchise, but a far from deep experience will not keep you coming back for more with Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden.
