Game Reviews

The hyper-popular SFC fighting game series (based on the monster manga comics) is heading to the PlayStation! Because it's on CD, Bandai has been able to cram in 22 characters! Plus, the animation has been made smoother by using at least three times more movement graphics than the SFC versions for extremely fluid movements. Add in texture-mapped polygon backgrounds and tons of cinemas from the TV series and movies, and you get a fighting game Toriyama fans cannot afford to miss!

Based on a popular animated and comic book series, Dragon Ball Z puts you locked in combat with characters from the series. Set up like one-on-one fighting, Dragon Ball Z employs exciting attacks coupled with awesome special techniques! Thirteen characters await combat with you in detailed background stages. 16 Meg is put to good use with the smooth animation and cool tunes.

Dragon Ball is a new fighting game for owners of the Super Famicom. Choose from two different heroes; a green mutant, or a heroic human! Battle huge creatures across the land as you journey to defeat the ultimate evil! Pull up the statistic screen and check your health and weapons. Dragon Ball is now available in Japan and could reach America later this year!

The rough and tumble warriors of the stupendous Dragon Ball Z anime series are back for another round of hyper-charged battle action. Set in the same head-to-head fighting style of the original, DBZ2 adds several new characters, while the regular crews get new powers, including young Gohan who is easily the toughest of the lot. The neat thing about this game, like before, is that the screen splits when the two players go away from each other. If you're a fan of the anime series, watch for this one.

Dragon Ball Z is nothing new to the Japanese. The Dragon Ball game series has spawned various genres like strategy, role-playing, and now a fighting game. What looks to be a mindless one-on-one fighting game is actually filled with tons of techniques, cool characters, and many game options like a story mode, a competition mode, and of course, a two-player game.

For those who simply must own every fighting game out there, Dragon Ball Z makes a terrific addition to the library.

Hey there everybody! Welcome back to another Arcade Action. This month's first game is Banpresto's latest fighting game Dragonball Z. Based on the wildly popular Japanese cartoon series of the same name, Dragonball Z is a fighting game with a major attitude!

Before we go any further, let me make one thing clear. The inclusion of this game in Arcade Action is kind of a first for this column. The reason being is that I don't know if this game is going to make it to the States! The reason I included it here is because this game is so cool, I had to show it to you!

Basically, Dragonball Z operates pretty much like the typical fighting game. Each character has his/her own special moves and combos that are performed by using different button joystick combinations. There is a life meter at the top of the screen, and depending on what you hit your opponent with, the damage is recorded here. The first player to lose all of his or her life is the loser. Graphically, this game is totally amazing. The characters are animated so well, that you'll be totally freaked! Keep your fingers crossed that Banpresto releases Dragonball Z in the U.S.

Nostradamus was an ancient cleric who predicted many future events with astounding accuracy. Now, Arcade Man is going to make a prediction of his own: you are going to go to the arcade and bang your head in anger against an arcade cabinet! The name of this game is Face Co's Nostradamus. It's a shooter of mythic proportions!

This game is a shooter fan's dream come true! You pick up various power ups and enhancements while you navigate your way through a constant barrage of enemy fire. The difficulty level of this game is awesome! It's difficult without being totally impossible. Be prepared to shell out some major tokens, though. Once you start playing Nostradamus, you will be hooked!

The backgrounds, enemy ships and cinematic displays will convince you instantly that Nostradamus is a fine piece of work. The Face Co. has really done a fine job with the entire game. Everything about this game is just plain cool. The action really heats up in the Two-player Mode!

Surprisingly, this shooter (unlike some others) is great at keeping your attention span. Make your own arcade history with Nostradamus!
