NCS Product Synopsis - Updated: March 19, 2009
«©NCSX» When NCS first heard about the live-action Dragonball
movie in 2002, we knew that there would be a video game tie-in. Remember that Street Fighterfilm from back in the day which featured Jean-Claude as Guile and Raul Julia as M. Bison? Back then, Capcom released a game titled Street Fighter: Real Battle on Filmthat capitalized on the movie's hype. SF:RBOF wasn't very good but it got bids because of the Street Fighter branding. This time around, Bandai's game treatment of the Dragonball Evolutionmovie is decent with a bevy of modes, fast action, and snappy graphics.

In Story Mode, players follow the adventures of Goku as portrayed by Justin Chatwin as he endeavors to retrieve the nine Dragon Balls. The story starts at Grandpa Gohan's (played by Randall Duk Kim) house where the two engage in a round of fisticuffs. The controls are simple with the analog pad controlling movement while the face buttons pound out kicks (Ä), punches (Ð), and power boosts (O). The (X) button throws up a block move. After soundly defeating Gohan, the story moves along coupled with a processions of fights against characters such as Bulma (Emmy Rossum), Mai (Eriko Tamura), and others. There's also a battle early in the game between Gohan and Piccolo (James Marsters) but even if you defeat Piccolo in the match, Gohan's house is still blown apart and Gohan himself is mortally wounded. From there, Goku vows vengeance and goes off on his adventure.

In addition to the Story Mode, players may also enjoy the Versus Mode, Mission Mode, and Arcade Mode . There's also a Gallery Mode but note that all of the data is locked when you first begin playing the game.
