Dragon Ball Z: Sagas
Dragon Ball Z: Sagas is a 3D action-adventure video game, based on the anime Dragon Ball Z, 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.
Why It Sucks
- Uninspired gameplay.
- Boring and tedious combat.
- The moves look stupid.
- Ugly graphics that are not detailed.
- Erratic camera.
- Poor controls.
- The game is very short, containing less than 25 levels.
- Restrictive and linear level design. The levels themselves are very short too.
- Small selection of characters.
- Every character plays the same.
- 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: Atari called Dragon Ball Z: Sagas "The first free-form destructible sandbox game". This was, of course, a lie; It's a linear beat 'em up, and a very bad one at that.
- Bosses are always teleporting.
- The voice acting is decent.
- The FMV cutscenes from the anime are enjoyable.
The game received generally mixed to negative reviews on release and was a commercial flop. Giving the game a 3.8 out of 10, GameSpot's Ryan Davis concluded that "In the end, Dragon Ball Z: Sagas fails in all departments. It's nowhere near as fun or functional as the Budokai games and completely fails in taking the series into a new direction".
Dragon Ball Z: Sagas was ranked at #84
