Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Violence
This is an action-adventure game in which players relive the story of Goku and his friends through the events and story arcs of the Dragon Ball Z franchise. From a third-person perspective, players interact with characters, complete side quests, and engage in story missions consisting mostly of fighting enemies in one-on-one combat. Players use punches, kicks, and perform energy blasts/beams to defeat opponents in frenetic combat. Battles are highlighted by impact sounds, light effects, and cries of pain. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: human hunters shooting a character in the stomach; a character's arm getting severed (no blood depicted); a young character destroyed in a fiery blast; characters impaled by lasers blasts. The game contains some suggestive material: a menu screen depicting adult magazines (women with deep cleavage, no nudity); suggestive descriptions of items and characters (e.g., “A risqué magazine, stored away in a random capsule by Dr. Briefs”; “...he is...quite the pervert, oftimes getting himself into trouble with women"; “...expelled for stealing his teacher's underwear...he originally used his power to kidnap young women he liked."); in one sequence, a character is seen reading an adult magazine (no nudity). The words “bastard” and “a*s” are heard in the game.
