    [​IMG] GBAtemp Recommends! Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure
    G.R. Issue #8 (GBA)

    Welcome back! You are now reading the eighth issue of GBAtemp Recommends! - a weekly magazine feature in which we share our favourite Game Boy Advance titles.

    GBAtemp Recommends!

    Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This week we chose a great beat 'em up game you may want to check out. The game is arguably a hit-or-miss for some people, but hopefully you'll get some enjoyment out of it.

    Dragon Ball: Advance Adventure is lightweight platformer beat 'em up that might have slipped under your radar.
    The game is a must for DragonBall fans and generally those who enjoy good ol' beat 'em up games alike.

    The story mode in Dragon Ball: Advance Adventure stays true to the television series story. You'll find yourself in non-stop action as you fight your way through a good number of levels, stopping along to engage in combat with challenging bosses. The combat mode on the game is great; there's a lot of replay value there.
    You're able to play through the story with a large selection of different characters and your character gains new battle skills as you progress.
    The story mode will keep you entertained for a few hours, no doubt.
    Dragon Ball: Advance Adventure's graphics are quote nice, there's a lot of color and animations. The games audio is nothing special; it gets the job done, however.

    Make sure to pick this title up and give it a go, you'll enjoy it!

    This game is really really good. I did a hack a while back trying to replace the main character with Sonic. Worked out great! I never moved it over to the English version though.

    Shameless self promotion:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    But yes this game is one of the best 2D beat em ups ever. It's a GBA champion right next to Astro Boy: Omega Factor.

    Fantastic choice... prefer Astro Boy though, has more meat on its bones.

    Never even heard of this game but I have played many Dragon Ball games for the GBA including the Super Sonic Warriors fighting game which was pure awesomeness.

    Really good game, amazing graphics and animation.

    Heran Bago, is your patch downloadable? It looks nice.

    The music in this game is quite good too. I did a line-in recording of it some years ago. *Link removed as it contained copyrighted material*

    The archive contains some nice boxart scans as well, done by someone from GBAtemp [​IMG]

    I got so much fun out of this! It took me ages to find the one-star dragonball, that was what kept me going.

    The Minigames are awesome which u unlock after!

    Shame they missed out cut-scenes and also shame it wasnt longer!

    I remember playing this game back in the days. It's a fun brawler not only if you like/know the Dragon Ball series/story, but if you do it gets even better.

    I can only second that question. Please share it with us.

    even though it's a game you can beat in no time, the fact that yo are able to bring back to life all those memories about DB is amazing, this beat-em up game is really one of the best games in it's genere.

    Ya know, that game looks decent. I haven't touched a DB game since trying an SNES one years ago. Gonna have to give this a shot.

    I love this game! Fun fun fun beat'em up. However, I wish that you could unlock adult Goku and Piccolo jr. for the one on one mode. That would've been awesome.

    Never had any interest in Dragon Ball but I can say that I am now addicted to this game.
