A continuation of games like the Legacy of Goku and the Legacy of Goku II, Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury is a fun action adventure game that will delight lovers of DBZ, no matter what era you preferred to read or watch. The game itself takes advantage of and inspiration from the games from the previous lineup while highlighting many of the aspects that you loved and bringing them to the forefront to continue to tell the next part of the story you got so invested in. In this game, you can take better control over your character, which makes it a little easier to beat but at the same time does not necessarily steal the challenge from the games.

Elements of Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury

The Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury game falls in line with the last part of the Dragon Ball Z plotline, which is what birthed the Legacy of Goku games in the first place. It begins right in the middle of intense Dragon Ball Z lore, so those who follow the storyline will love the feeling of continuation of the lore that brings out everything you love from the manga and anime as well. This means that the game leaves very little room for character development, but for the hardcore DBZ fan, that is likely going to be more exciting than it is disappointing, because you already understand the intricate elements of the characters, their backstories and lives.

Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury mainly focuses on the fights and battles with Majin Buu, even though you won't meet that character for a few hours in. Your character will travel through the various levels and stages of the game, gaining experience by not just killing enemies but by also working your way through various missions that offer you plenty to deal with. It's different from the preceding DBZ games like the Legacy of Goku in the way that you can allocate your own points before you begin playing, letting you slightly customize your gameplay style. There are a few other elements that change the gameplay in a good way, such as button functionality.
