Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II

A continuation of the 2002 RPG, created based on the license of the cult-classic manga from Akira Toriyama. The studio responsible for the title is Webfoot, seasoned developer of Dragon Ball’s video game adaptations. The plot continues the story initiated in the first installment, focusing on an imminent end of the world, heralded by Trunks - a visitor from the future. At the beginning of the game, we assume the role of Goku, but the hero quickly falls ill, succumbing to a vicious disease, forcing us to take over other characters: Piccolo, Gohan, Vegeta, and Trunks. The gameplay in Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku consists of exploring a huge world, completing various main and side quests, and encounters with different adversaries. Our combat skills include a wide range of melee attacks and special abilities, amplified further by the transformation into a “Super Sayan”. Visuals are one of the strong points of the game, and are inspired by the craft of the famous mangaka. Soundtrack contains music that is well-known to every Dragon Ball enthusiast.

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II for Game Boy Advance is a direct continuation of the 2002 game with the same title. Once again, the development was carried out by Webfoot, on the license of the cult-classic manga by Akira Toriyama. The plot of the game takes place not long after the events of the original game. A powerful child named Trunks returns via a time machine to warn Goku about the approaching end of the world. Only he with his fighters can stop this from happening.

Gameplay

We begin the game as Goku, but our hero quickly falls victim to a vicious disease, allowing us to take control over other characters. The player assumes the role of five heroes: Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, Trunks, and Vegeta. The currently chosen character can be changed while visiting a save point, but every hero has to be unlocked beforehand – game gradually unlocks them all. What’s interesting, the story can take a different course if in the given moment we decide to roll another hero. The story is definitely a highlight of the game, as it allows the player to relive the events of some sagas from the series. The game world is very huge – consists of hundreds of locations to explore, while the player has some freedom in choosing the order of visiting them. A big, clear-cut three-dimensional world map is definitely an advantage. The combat system is quite intuitive: the encounters have been thoroughly improved and expanded – we can now feel the real power of the Super Saiyan mode. The visuals are similar to what we could see in the previous installments, which is good – considering the platform, even the first part made a very good impression. Soundtrack includes motifs known from the movie, which will be instantly recognized by any Dragon Ball Z fan.
