The game received "unfavorable" reviews according to video game review aggregator Metacritic.[2] IGN called it a "pile of trash," "disaster burned onto a UMD," and "competitor for the worst game on the PSP."[9] Reviewers noted that pressing the same button repeatedly was sufficient to win battles against the AI in the game's story mode, while adding an Ultimate Attack to the mix was similarly effective in the arcade mode.[7][9] GamePro gave the game a moderate review, writing, "despite horrible graphics, spotty A.I., and some severely unbalanced characters, Dragon Ball Evolution on PSP at least delivers fast action and multiple modes of play."[4] In Japan, Famitsu gave it a much better score of one seven, one six, and two sevens, for a total of 27 out of 40.[3] The game was included among the worst games of all time by GamesRadar in 2014.[11]
