Kamehamehamode…okay I get it already
In addition to the regular battles DBZ Tag Team has a number of game modes that you can explore. The main story mode is called ‘Dragon Walker’ where you move your chosen character around a world map and get into battles with various enemies. It goes through the whole DBZ lore timeline and you will find yourself fighting through the Saiyan Saga, the Frieza Saga, the Majin Buu Saga. If these mean nothing to you, then this is probably not your game anyways. Not that the writing of a Dragon Ball Z episode is Shakespeare, but the storytelling in this game is atrocious. I’m not one to point fingers at a fighting game’s story, but Tag Team had me shaking my head within the first five minutes.
The Battle 100 mode pits you against random enemies for a series of fights. It is a glorified arcade mode and is really handy for quick fights when you are on the go and don’t have time to journey through Dragon Walker mode and just want to get right into the action.
Survival mode is just what it says, survive. Fight your way through endless enemies until you either die, or can’t take it any longer.
The final mode, customization mode, acts as the game shop and allows you to spend points earned in the game proper. You can purchase items that increase your character stats like attack or defense, or improve your ability to use ki power (projectiles and ranged attacks), as well as give you some other bonuses. I spent most of my time in Dragon Walker as it definitely had the most to offer, but don’t expect anything special in terms of a storyline, just an immense cast of characters for you to beat up.
