Dragonball Z: Taiketsu is often considered a nauseatingly bad
fighting game.
Although, in my oppinion, that's far from true. I'm not going
to say that
it's a great game, because it isn't, but it does have it's
moments. It is
especially good for long trips, due to its replay value. That
being said,
there are still two major things people want answered after
playing it: "How
do I unlock characters?" and "How do I do specials?" This
guide, is intended
to answer both of those questions, as detail any other
possible information
about Taiketsu.

|----------------| This is the arcade mode of the game. You
can choose which
| Tournament
| ever character you like, and then you'll
play through 7
|----------------| randomly selected fighters. Once you finish
the last one,
you'll see a short story on your character,
and then you
will recieve an award. If you unlock a
character, that's
your reward. If not, you recieve 25,000 Z.
|----------------| In this mode, you will face one fighter
after another,
| Endurance
| without your health restoring. You try to
see how long you
|----------------| can last, and your best runs (going by how
many opponents
you defeat) are saved to the high-score
list.

|----------------| This mode is similair to Tournament mode,
except for the
| Time Challenge | fact, that in this mode, you are timed.
Your best times
|----------------| are saved to a high-score list.
Furthermore, you can win
extra points after each fight, if you
finish in under 30
seconds.
|----------------| This mode, is just for training. You can
change whether or
| Sparring
| not your opponent attacks you, in the pause
menu. Neither
|----------------| you or your opponent can be killed however.
This is mainly
for practicing specials, and honing your
skills.
|----------------| This mode is the same as regular Endurance,
except the
| Endurance x2
| opponents you face are twice as strong,
making the whole
|----------------| mode much harder.
