Dragon Ball games have been really popular among those who could watch the original series of Akira Toriyama when we were younger. There have been many games from big developers that have tried to express the same spirit as the anime with more or less success. In this case, Dragon Ball Z MUGEN Edition has been created by amateurs and the final game is really good. It respects the aspect that the games released on 16-bit systems had with an improved gameplay and variety on the characters included. The good thing about this MUGEN engine is that it receives updates from time to time with new feedbacks made by its users, which makes the constant improvements more dynamic than in commercial games.
The characters included are from different arcs of the series. You can play with Goku in his Super Saiyan form, Vegeta, Super Cell, Majin Buu and Frieza among other popular characters. Their techniques and aspect are the same as the original series and the game style is similar to Arcade games, so the fast paced gameplay is almost guaranteed. Dragon Ball Z MUGEN Edition is one of my favorite free games ever released for Windows systems, so give it a try, and it won’t disappoint you.
