Full of famous characters and free-range fighting, this game is designed to let Dragon Ball Z fans play through some of their favorite storylines. Following success of the Budokai 3D fighting series, Dragon Ball Z returns to PS2 and GameCube (and comes to Xbox for the first time) in this third-person action-adventure, which is based directly on the animated television series. Dragon Ball Z: Sagas lets gamers take the roles of five DBZ heroes -- Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, Vegeta, and Trunks -- and play through the first parts of the anime series' sophisticated storyline, from the Saiyan Saga through the Cell Games.
DBZ Sagas is designed to let fans explore open-ended areas featured on the television show. Random enemies and hidden items promote an "emergent," sandbox-style of play. Since the main game mode follows the plot of the animated series, the playable character changes through the adventure's 19 levels, according to the heroes featured in the different chapters of the story. Famous villains such as Cell, Nappa, and Raditz are featured as well, in boss battles that occur between the third-person adventure levels. Once the main game has been completed, new playable characters are unlocked, and gamers can revisit levels as any hero they wish, even if their choice doesn't make sense in the Dragon Ball Z timeline.
