KetoprakDL – Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 is a video game based on the real manga Dragon Ball Z. It is called “Ultimate Battle 22” or “UB22” by the fans because it features a roster twenty two playable characters from the series.
It was released in 1995 in Japan and 1996 in Europe.
Another fighting game called Dragon Ball Z: Shin Butôden was released in the same era for the Sega Saturn, and is considered by many to be the better between the two games. The aforementioned game never received an American release.
When Ultimate Battle 22 was officially released in North America eight years later by Atari, no English dub track was produced and the pre-battle cut scenes were removed.
This 2-D/3-D combination PlayStation game features many attacks from the manga. The game is notable for using actual cel drawings from the animators as character sprites and cut scenes before the fights which were a novelty at the time of its original release in Japan (these cut scenes were removed on the European and US releases).
Next Generation reviewed the PlayStation version of the game, rating it two stars out of five, and stated that “About the only thing this one has going for it is the vast selection of characters.”
Ultimate Battle 22 was the subject of an overwhelming number of negative American reviews. The original Japanese game came out in 1995, and thus, by comparison to the more recent PlayStation titles, the game paled in comparison to contemporaries such as SoulCalibur II and Tekken 4.
