Piccolo vs. Goku

Dragonball Evolution is the third game based on the Dragon Ball franchise to be released on the PlayStation Portable. The gameplay is very similar to that the Budokai games, as it is also developed by Dimps who previously released the two PSP games Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai and Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road.

It is the first Dragon Ball video game spin-off to feature Bulma as a proper playable character.

Arlong Park said this of the game "So far I am severely unimpressed. We're listening to airheads talk about some very basic stuff . . . First game pictures look like DBZ Sparking but with real textures. Bulma seems to be a fighter this time around . . ."[1]

GameSpot's playthrough with the game during the New York Comic Con had a more positive reception with more details given about the various game modes, playable characters, unlockables and special attacks.[2] Visitors at the con also had positive opinions toward the game.

On April 8, 2009, Chris Roper of IGN gave the game a less favorable review stating that "Unfortunately, while the Dragonball games have largely been improving over time, reaching a point nowadays when they can be fun to even non-DBZ fans, Dragonball Evolution is a pile of trash."[3]
