    Introduction / Story
    Dragonball, one of the best anime ever with a vast amount of fans now comes to your GBA. Most Dragonball fans will go nuts over this, especially since it’s actually excellent and loads of fun. It is definitely my favourite Dragonball game and you can find out why.

    If you ever watched the show, it’ll be very easy to catch on with the story mode. But don’t worry if you never watched it, because it’ll be just as easy to catch on. The story starts with Goku as a child. Goku then meets a girl called Bulma and they join forces to gather the 7 Dragonballs which grants a single wish. The story mode is pretty dead-on except for the fact that they removed and altered some parts to make the game simpler.

    Gameplay – 10
    There are two modes in this game, “Story” and “One on one” fighting.

    In story mode, you play as little Goku in the epic journey of the Dragonballs and the many events along the way. You play the game all the way until he is an adult and to the start of the Dragonball Z anime. The game is a side-scroller, so imagine playing Maplestory or Gunbound.

    One on one mode lets you play fast paced action fights against the CPU. You get to pick any character you unlocked via story mode. Starting fighters are only Goku and Krillin. The gameplay style is different than in story mode. In story mode it’s a basic side-scrolling fighter, but in one on one mode, it’s like Street Fighter.

    Graphics and Sound - 9
    The graphics are amazing, it uses the full potential of the GBA. The backgrounds and terrain are outstanding and eye candy for sure.

    The sound in this game is very clear and well done. Even some of the songs and sound effects from the anime are in the game!

    Replay – 8
    The already great game also has a great amount of replay value. Once you beat story mode with Goku, you can do it with Krillin! There’s also tournament mode and extra mode once you beat story mode.

    Tournament mode is basically one on one mode, but tournament style and it’s an all-around excellent unlockable.

    Extra mode lets you select a single mode from story mode and play it with all doors unlocked. The unlocked doors all have unlockables such as portraits and other fun things.

    Conclusion
    Dragonball – Advanced Adventure is a really well-made game and it shows. This game is definitely worth checking out if you are a Dragonball fan and has a GBA/DS handheld.

    SCORE = 9/10
