2. About the Game

Dragon Ball Z Budokai 2 is the best fighting game ever!!! I got this on my
birthday. It's lost some of it's shine, put it still really fun to
play. This game is cel-shaded so it look like the anime. Atari has taken out
Story Mode out, which was cool, and replaced it with a mode called Dragon
World. This mode is cooler than it looks, and it looked pretty cool to start
with. The replay value of this game is pretty good.... but after the 4th or
5th time through, it gets old. There's also many other things new about this
game..... but you'll have to find them on your own.

Here are the default controls for the game and the key

3. History of the Great Saiyaman

The Gt. Saiyaman has a short history. He is actually Gohan in disguise. He
weara black skin-tight suit under his sleeve-less green fighting...uh...
garments and white gloves and a helmet that makes him look like a spaceman. He
first appears after the Cell saga but before Majin Buu is ressurrected. Gohan
sees two thugs robbing a bank, so he turns Super - Saiyan and defeats them....
easily. He wants to fight crime, but doesn't want his friend and classmates to
thinkhe's a super-powered freak, so he goes to Bulma's to get an idea. She
suggests that he become a super hero. So she makes him the costume I described
earlier and, he fights crime AND stays "normal" at school. Local crime-fighter,
Videl, figures him out, and blackmails him. Unless he enters the martial arts
tournament, and teaches her how to fly, she blabs. So he teaches her her to
fly and they fall in love.But the committee won't let him have headgear,
so he uses a white turban and sunglasses instead. He enters, but is cut short
because they leave to fight Babidi, but not before having his sunglases
knocked off. Doh!

And that's it. not much there.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4. Suggested tactics

What I suggest for Saiyaman is don't be vicious. Sure you can shoot ki blasts
at 'em when they're on the ground, but..... he's not that good when you go all
out offensive. It's better to think about what your doing. I know, I know, you
bought this game because your tired of games where you have to think, but....
GET USED TO IT! Sorry, i got carried away....Anyway, since he has no long range
beam attacks, you can either, a). distance yourself perfectly so when you do
your ->E, Justice Punch, you come down on their head, or b). not do it.
Personally I don't use ->E at all. Natta. Zero. None. Zip. (I would say some
French word but i can't speak French).*_* Also, don't use the Justice Pose
too much, or else you'll just hurt your gut laughing so hard at how dumb he
looks.^_^ It's an okay attack. It ups your attack 5% and halves the opponents
ki. Once you do this 4 times, your attack won't go up anymore. Some good combos
are-

  combo             Description
1.KK<-K,->E           1. This combo starts by 2 kicks followed by a knee to the
                         face, sending them into the air. while their still in
                         air the Justice Punch sometimes hits them.

2.->PPPKK             2. A good combo you should use. This is also the combo
                         used for Justice Pose (See Section 5.). You start
                         with 3 punches then ending with Saiyaman jumping
                           and doing a double reverse kick. Very Sweet.

3.KKKK                3. Simple yet effective. 3 kicks, followed by a
                         strong final kick. I don't use this one that
                         much.

4.PPP->P,<-<-G        4. I use this'n alot. Very effective for a first strike
                         attack. Three punches and a final crushing punch to the
                         opponnents face.>_< ow! After he's down the stuff
                         after the comma is just charging up your ki.

Physical Attack Capsules

______________________________________________________________________________
1.Justice Finisher   |KKK->KE        |A very good physical attack. GSM
                     |               |launches your opponent into the air,
                     |               |and does a series of kicks and puches,
                     |               |and elbows him to the ground. GSM
                     |               |flies straight down, and if you press
                     |               |a different button than your opponent,
                     |               |and lands on his back really hard with
                     |               |his knee.
_____________________|_______________|_______________________________________
2.Justice Flash      |->PPPPE        |GSM smacks his opponent into the air and
                     |               |smacks him back down in a hurry. Rotate
                     |               |the analog sticks as fast as you can. GSM
                     |               |charges up and delivers a volley of Ki
                     |               |energy blast, 9, I think, and if you
                     |               |charged it up all the way, he fires a
                     |               |big blast at the beat opponent. it does
                     |               |almost twice as the other nine.O_O.

                     |               |kicks the enemy down but keeps his foot
                     |               |in the opponents gut and slams him into
                     |               |the ground with his foot.
