Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu (GBA)
Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu (AKA ドラゴンボールZ：対決 or Doragonbōru Z: Taiketsu in Japan) is a 2D Gameboy Advance fighting video game released in November 24, 2003 developed by Webfoot and published by Atari. The game received a lot of negative reviews during the time of its release and is also probably considered to be one of the worst DBZ games out there.
Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu features 7 default playable characters (from a total of 15) and consists of 4 different game modes: tournament, endurance, time challenge, and sparring mode.
The actual gameplay gets bland really quickly. You will constantly do the same attacks over and over as there are no real combos in this game. The controls are very confusing especially if you are not that familiar with its default controls. The game’s AI feels broken and glitchy, sometimes your opponent would just keep jumping around waiting for you to get near and when you try to approach it will constantly punch even if you’re already knocked down on the ground.
Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu also consists of a multiplayer mode that will enable you to play with your friends, which will remove the struggle of battling a boring and glitchy AI opponent. The battles however, have one unique feature, a sky battle where you and your opponent rise to the skies and do fierce attacks, however this only consists of button mashing until your both back on the ground.
The graphics look both good and bad at the same time, with its 3d like appearance but somewhat 2d like movements. Aside from the main game modes, there is also a store in-game where you can buy extra stuff like image gallery, jukebox, bios, bonus settings, and also a bonus mode is available.

Once you have unlocked these bonus features you will have access to various settings, including the image gallery which consists of 20 random images from the main series, the jukebox which will enable you to listen to in-game songs anytime you want, bios settings that will get you to know better about the in-game fighters, bonus settings which consists of cheat-like options for the game, and bonus mode 2 which is a secret battle mode you definitely need to play.
Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu might not be the best there is when it comes to picking a good fighting game, it is awful and glitchy AI may not suit well to new players, and the lack of characters and content makes this a very disappointing experience for true fans of the series.
Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu game has only been ported to GBA (Game Boy Advance).
