Very innovating
2 April 2009 | by (Asunción, Paraguay) – See all my reviews

It is really surprising how good this game is. I have played the Tenkaichi 2 and really loved it but this one surpassed it in every aspect. First of all, these games are innovating the fight genre making it more appealing to everyone. You now have the possibility to play in first player mode unlike most fight games that have the side perspective. But that is not all. You can choose tons of characters from the original series since the creators added almost every small role that made an appearance in the popular world of Dragon Ball.

Sparking Meteor is an excellent game and you might never get bored. There are many modes making it very long thus not making it repetitive (Survivor, Story, 2 Player, Dragon Simulator, 100 Missions and so on). The 2 player mode is the very best (and I think that everyone would agree with me) since you can choose one character and fight your friends or choose five characters each in the Team Battle mode.

The playability might seem a bit complicated at first, but once you get the handle of it you might be able to do every technique that has been seen in the series (teleportation, rapid movements, impressive chases, etc.) making it even more spectacular. Plus every single character is able to do his/her signature/s move/s (you can notice that the creators put attention to every detail taking in to account that there are more than 150). Add this to its incredible scenery (which is almost completely destroyable) extracted directly from the series and you have the most unique fight game.

Overall this game is a set of fast-paced action and an absolute must play for every gamer that claims he/she is into fight games since this one may not disappoint anyone.
