Extreme Butoden is simplistic to a fault and won't bring anyone new to the DBZ universe, but fans will enjoy the weird stories and obscure characters that pop up from time to time.
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.
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden displays plenty of flair, faithfully drawing on the source material to deliver a robustly fist-pounding experience that fans will rightly enjoy. Concerns around graphics and audio detract, but Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden can be stand tall in achieving larger successes.
