Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit was developed Dimps and had Atari or Bandi Namco Games as publishers depending on what country it was released in. The reason why DBZ: Burst Limit is considered to be an underrated gem was because it was overshadowed by a variety of Dragon Ball Z titles that came out during the 2000’s. As many people know the DBZ Budokai along with the Tenkaichi series shined far more than Burst Limit did during the 2000’s. Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit had a great look to it due to the inclusion of cel-shaded graphics but the game lacked depth in terms of characters. There also complaints about the online multiplayer mode being lackluster in DBZ: Burst Limit. The story mode which covered the Saiyan, Frieza, Cell and Buu sagas were impressive as it related to Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit.
