DBZ Burst Limit demo online

DBZ Burst Limit demo online

Atari today released the Dragon Ball Z Burst Limit demo on the European Marketplace, while the US and PS3 users got it yesterday. The demo has impressed me and many others, and I'm not even a fighting or Dragon Ball fan. We have some images here, while we may have a gameplay video later.
Update: Gameplay video added.

Yep, thereof the "US users". I guess the sentence wasn't clear enough though. Europe got it today.

its really good controls are simple and it looks amazing when looking at it on your own tv.

Yep, I don't think the images does it justice (but captures rarely does). Looks and plays great, I do these crazy things that I have no idea how they happened. When you figure out the controls, it looks pretty cool on screen. And I laugh at the sound effects, hilarious.

It's definitely better than the last DBZ game I played. Nice special moves and most importantly it's fun to play.

It does look much better than the las one. I've got to say this slipped right under my radar. I can't D/L the demo at the moment but when I do and if it's as fun as you say I may just buy it. In the meantime, get back in there for another scrap Manager.

This game is amazing. It feels... right!!!!

I hope it's very detailed, seems to be but over 3 major sagas it could keep a lot of content from the show!

I never played any of the previous 3d DBZ fighting games, so I have nothing to compare it to, but it is pretty cool. I'm a little past the borderline on buying it now, that is I think I'll probably get it. Going to compare the PS3 and 360 versions running at the same time today to see which to buy, they looked 100% the same last night but I was tired.

urgh, i hate the way it looks like the devs have taken ground based attack animations and just copy/pasted it for air attacks. i mean. some of those air based moves look like their doing them on an invisible glass sheet, where their feet are acting like theis stood on something, when clearly they're floating.

I hate how there's a lot of the smaller details missing. Picollo's left arm should be gone when he performs the Special Beam Cannon, and Goku and Radditz should both have a massive burn-hole in their chest's afterwards!

Still, it's pretty brilliant. :)

I think some of that is because it's a T game. Even though the show wasn't especially gory, those bits of blood and body parts missing would probably push it into M territory.

dog always moaning, only joking m8 ;) any idea on when the Euro PS3 owners will get it?
Commented on 2008-05-17 08:10:43
The gameplay is an evolution from the Budokai saga wich is the best one IMO. I think that Dimps has pulled out a great and fun game. The downside is the limited character and scenarios selection, really really poor.
It is a taste for what will be getting in the near future with a Burst Limit 2.

If someone would explain the controls, especially the trigger and shoulder buttons, i would be very thankful :)
From what i played it seems awesome, but i cant figure out the charge bar thing, or the "transform" button, or any of the other wierd ones..
DBZ veterans, teach me!

They do it in the anime too.

so far so good.

demo`s half decent!!!
Commented on 2008-05-17 23:37:49
Demo rocks

looks just like an anime show, even better than the actual anime. What is awesome is how they took the winning formula of budokai 3, and put in the over the top camera work for mega moves! it just rocks! fights feel like part of the story rather than you fight, then view a cutscene to see the story.. it is all intertwined.

Took me a while to get used to the controls and learn the moves as i was so used to the ps2 games

can't wait to see the transformations and mega moves!!

Majin Vegeta vs Goku? WHAAAAA!

It does look like it's going to be fun to play, DBZ always was. But my DBZ days are over.
