Another RetroNight, and as fate would have it, another Dragon Ball Z game takes the stage. Dragon Ball Z: Buu’s Fury is the third installment in a series of action RPG titles for the Gameboy Advance. These games put you in the shoes of various DBZ characters of your choosing, from Goku to Gotenks.
You can grow as these characters and have unique experiences suited to your play-style. There are also numerous areas that can only be accessed by certain characters, so exploring with all of them will be instrumental to accomplish everything.
This title covers the Majin Buu saga of Dragon Ball Z, so it has a lot of elements from the original narrative for die-hard fans to experience. Despite this it still feels new and original with its execution, adding things a huge fan simply might not be familiar with.
Despite this, the charm and presence of Dragon Ball Z can certainly be found. Each character’s special moves feel as though there’s a reason to use them to compliment the hand-to-hand fighting that the game centers around.
Most importantly perhaps is the faithful recreation of the aesthetic elements that make this series so lovable. This includes carbon copy replica of the famous soundtrack, which for the Buu Saga in particular, took a major leap even for Bruce Faulconer’s incredible work.
Dragon Ball Z: Buu’s Fury may not be easily accessible now, but it’s still a game that Dragon Ball Z fans should at least try to check out if the chance arises.
