Dragon Ball Z: Sagas
Dragon Ball Z: Sagas is an action adventure game developed by Avalanche Software and published by Atari. It is the first Dragon Ball Z game to be released on a non-Japanese console, the Xbox. It was also the only Dragon Ball Z game to be released on the original Xbox.
Why It Sucks
- Boring and tedious combat. Only two buttons (X and Y) are used for attacks and nothing else.
- Ugly and low quality graphics that are on par with a PlayStation 1 title.
- Erratic camera, which is either too far away or too close.
- Poor controls and movement, making the world look like it was waxed on.
- The game is very short, containing less than 25 levels. You can basically complete this in less than 3 hours.
- Restrictive and linear level design. The levels themselves are very short too.
- Small selection of characters. Most of the unlocked characters are just pallet swaps.
- Every character plays the same, with no difference whatsoever.
- The special moves like the Kamehameha look like pathetic energy balls, and all the special moves look the same.
- Many bugs and glitches, like when your opponent's health never goes down or when you phase right through mountains.
- False advertising: The game was advertised as a first free roam destructible sandbox Dragon Ball Z game, yet in reality it’s a linear beat’em up.
- Bosses are always teleporting.
- The voice acting is decent.
- The FMV cutscenes from the anime are enjoyable.
This game was only advertised to be a sandbox, game in 2020 Bandai did made a open world sandbox Dragon Ball Z game called: Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, which received Mixed-to-positive reviews from critics and gamers.
