Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2

We kung-fu our way through sprawling battlegrounds in the deepest DBZ game yet

We also got a sneak peek at the Wii version of the game, which we're told will be identical to the PS2 edition, but with better graphics and different controls. We haven't been able to try the controls ourselves, but we did see a video of a tester madly waving around the Wiimote and nunchuck attachment. Swinging the Wiimote quickly will translate into stronger attacks, we were told, while swinging the nunchuck attachment will make you move faster. And, naturally, pulling back both and shoving them forward in a Kamehameha-like motion results in a giant damn fireball shooting toward your opponent.

If you get tired of waving your arms around, have no fear - Tenkaichi 2 will let you switch over to a standard GameCube controller, giving you something more familiar to work with.


After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
