Dragon Ball Z: Budokai, a series I feel is on par with the likes of Soul Calibur and even the mighty Tekken (which recently returned to form spectacularly)!
This game has more characters, moves and customisation in one battle than in the entirety of Tekken 5 or Soul Calibur 2, and I damn well mean it!
The battles take place on vast (remember, there's a difference between vast and empty) and interactive landscapes, and have an epic feel to them everytime! (Since when in Tekken or Soul Calibur could you dodge a giant fireball, teleport behind your suprised opponent, knock them through a mountain then throw a hundred explosions down on them? You can even destroy the planet you're fighting on!)
Fighting is fast and furious. Battles can turn around in mere moments, and the customisation of Skills makes for awesome startegic play as well! Even the most hardened of warriors are going to have a tough time against a Cooler equipped with the regenerative Cooler's Spaceship Capsule! (If you have no idea what I'm talking about- that's normal)
But when you finally unleash a Genki Dama/ Spirit Bomb on your opponent, using all your character's remaining Ki (energy) in a last ditch effort to defeat your enemy, destroying the face of the planet while you're at it, only to find that they have only just managed to survive and have their own Special Attack is where the true magic of the game comes in!
There's only one fighting game that demands your money more than this one, and that's Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3- Collector's Edition! Buy it now!

first of i am a fan of the anime of dragon ball z but was oh so very skeptical of it being turned into a game. Boy was i proved wrong for anyone whos ever seen the anime this is a amazing game you can do everything that is seen in the anime. For people who have not seen the anime dont worry you will easily pick up on the story and charachters. The graphics with shell shading are stunning and really bring the game to life and the whole button and combo system has been greatly thought about to make it sooooo much fun to play. This game has such a long life to it with a great RPG element and loads of charachers 40+ it is just great fun to play. This is a game you will keep for ages and is a great multiplayer game. Honestly cant praise it enough!!!!

for starters, forget that this is on the PS2 and forget tht its graphically inept compared to the likes of Burstlimit for the 360, this is by far the best Dragonball game made so far. It surpasses Burstlimit in so many ways that it really doesnt matter that its for a less capable console. The graphics because of this are no where near as complex or good looking yet they still ring true to the series and still make you take a step back and say "wow if only they re-did the series like this". The Z chronicles section of this game is immense, with an actuall free roam type gameplay allowing players to fly around the world of the game as they choose. it chronicles the whole of the tv series and allows players to make the sacred Goku AND Vegita SSJ4 transormation (oh yes get ready to wet ur pants) and the storylines, unlike Burstlimit are well explained, so u wont have to be a superfan to know why the hell people are randomly fighting. Overall this is an incredible effort which to be quite honest puts all previous games and even the ones since to shame. so like i said if you have to buy a Dragonball Z game make sure its this :) its even worth buying the PS2 for tbh. :)

WOW!!!!!This game has improved soooooooooooooo much!There's no way i can tell you ALL the improvements,but here are some:you can fly at any time in a match by dashing backwards and pressing up,in the new story mode(dragon universe)you can do what you want(fly around the whole of DBZ,check out all your favourite places e.g west city,baba's palace)and you are a person,not just a weird and dodgey looking counter(as in budokai2)!Speaking of dodgey,you can dodge and teleport behind your opponent!!!!There are sooooooooo many new characters e.g:Broly,Cooler(frieza's bro),bardock(goku's dad),uub(kid buu,but good)and you can even be Omega Shenron!!You can also choose cell jr and saibemen!!!Plus(where does it stop?!)now you don't have to struggle with bad guys with WAY higher health levels than yours,because you can build up your health and lots of other stats!The new drgon arena is also a good new feature!You battle loads of opponents,getting stronger and when someone breaks in,you can unlock lots of cool skills(my favourite is cell games!!)!So,that's all i'm saying,cus i can't even type nothin else!
SEE YA!!!!
P.S Come visit my planet sometime!

If i was to sum up this one of a kind game in one word it would be 'crazy'. It has got to be the most addictive, fast paced beautiful and downright ballistic fighting game i have ever played! As i am a fan of Dragonball z i immediatly got into the game, the characters are all there, and they are all awesome. (My fav's being Vegeta and Perfect Cell)
The fighting in the game is exactly like that found in the cartoon, and it looks and feels great. All the special moves looks amazing and the ultimate attacks (The biggest attack i have found so far) are an absolute treat to watch.
This game is so fun and so mental that you will be laughing at the screen when you pull of a barrage of impossible attacks.
If you like DBZ go but it, right now. If you dont like DBZ then give it a rent.
Nose.

As my title and rating proclaims, this game is rather good. As a rather casual anime fan, who hasn't even taken the time to watch all of Dragonball Z, I still wound up having a lot of fun with this particular title. This is mainly because even without the Dragonball Z theme, you're still presented with a very solid fighting game which has a lot of deeper concepts which are easy to get into. Beam battles in particular are a very cool inclusion. I can't say that the game is necessarily balanced, mostly due to the fact that in the anime some characters are blatantly stronger than others (Yegeta vs Krillin for example), but there is still a lot of skill involved, which can result in Yamcha beating Goku at his fourth saiyan level if played correctly. The story mode isn't particularly strong, but it's a fighting game, and as such this isn't really the focus, although it does give a rough idea of what happens across the various arcs through several characters. Also being able to fly around the entire map does have some initial novelty to it. All in all, a very solid fighting game that could potentially appeal to fighting game fans who aren't necessarily into the anime.

when i opened Dragonball Z Budokai 3 at christmas i really wanted to play it. and so i did. my first impression was "OH MY GOD!" it's a great game. you can teleport which rocks. you can enter something called hyper mode wich makes you really strong and can launch death moves e.g. spirit bomb. The new stroy mode is called DragonUniverse or DU. you can fly around and battle different openents. you have to complete it with different charecters to unlock new ones. you dont just complete with it with goku like before. after completeing it with 11 characters (Goku, kid gohan, teen gohan, Gohan, vegeta, picalo, krillen, yamcha, tien, Uub, broly) you unlock something called dragon arena wich means you can level up your charecters. if yo have Budokai 2 saved on you game you get capsules at the begining. there are also things called membership cards (silver - capsules, Gold - expensive capsules, Black -rare capsules, all capsules will then be available) which can make you get new skills at the skill shop! The only problems with the game in my opinion are:
dispute of charcters. People have been saying you can unlock super 17, baby, all the shenrons from dragonball gt. you only unlcok Omega shenron. You do not unlock the spice boys, Garlick jnr, pan, baby, super 17, all the shenrons, all the ginyu force. there is about 40 charecters. unlockables include:
Goku
Kid Goku (dragonball NOT GT)
Kid Gohan
Teen Gohan
Gohan (adult)
Vegeta
Trunks
kid Trunks
goten
Videl
Majin Buu
Super Buu
Kid Buu
Freiza (all forms)
Cell (all forms)
Cooler
Uub
Broly
Hercule/Mr. Satan
Captain Ginyu
Reecome
android 16
android 17
android 18
android 20/ Dr. Gero
krillen
Picalo
the great saiyaman
raditz
nappa
Omega Shenron
ss1-4 goku
SS1,2,4 Vegeta
Vegito (portara)
SS2 fusion Gogeta
SS4 fusion Gogeta
Fusion Gotenks
i think thats it. but all in all its a great game. to find out how to unlock any of these people visit [...] (some of the descriptions arnt to helpful) there is no actual cheats e.g. capsule cheat like in budokai 2, to my knowledge.
i would say its a great game, mutch better than the first 2.

This game is set to be one of the biggest releases of 2004 like everyone ive pre ordered my copy of this highly anticipated game, if you havent i suggest you do so soon!
This time in the Dragonball universe we get a more freee flowing game aloowing the player to access the new story mode and follow the storyline from the start of Dragonball Z (Radizt) to the end of the GT saga (Super Shenron).
What i have seen from ingame clips its going to an explosive edition to the already vast existing Dragonball Z fighting games available, and this edition will blow away the competion and should be the best version of the game available.
The game now features free flight of the world map during story mode where the hero can search for capsules to improve his fighter and battle hordes of enermies from the amine to gain experience to level up and make your fighter even stronger.
but thats only the start, the best part is going to be the new battle systems placed in the game, this being the new teleportation moves which can be used to dodge attacks by teleporting behind your enemy and hitting them full force form behind, this makes the game far more action packed and is going to make or break your journey through the Z fighters world.
The character list has been expanded for this release, budokai 1 gave you the many forms of the characters but stopped at the cell saga. Where as budokai 2 gave you characters up till the end of the buu saga but didnt give any transformations for the badies, this time though we now have an expanded roster AND more transformations. Frieza has all of his forms from the small form to his final form and even his buffed up version of this, also im expecting the mecha frieza. Cooler is also in with his mnay tranformations and i know that his mecha form is ingame from the intro movie of the game. and the mighty legendary super saiyan brolly now makes an appearance in both nromal and Legendary Super saiyan form. Cell and buu also have their transformations.
The game may not have everyone which you may have wanted ingame but its going to be pretty close to having more than you expected to have in the game.
Little over 2 weeks till its release and I, like many are counting the days till we get our hands on this new epic in the dragonball Z universe.

After picking up budokai 1 i was initially dissapointed, how can such a low class game carry the title of dragonball z on it??....but then, dragonball z isn't exactly known for 'tripple A titles' it spews out. So after the huge let down that was budokai 1, i decided to invest in the review friendly budokai 2. Why you ask?? well i think it was part due to the fact that i really needed a good game to past the time until final fantsay, and part due to i really wanted a game worthy off the title of the anime/manga we all know and love. So after just seconds of popping it into the disk tray that was it, goodbye social life, hello budokai 2!!......i was hooked, mesmorised and downright pleased of all it had to offer, but then, there were a few letdowns, a few things that made you wonder why didn't atari just spend a little more time to polish it up.........and thats where budokai 3 comes in. Improving on the last two efforts quite imenssley. Could this be the game all of us DB fans have been so aimlessly searching for all this time??......well with 40 plus characters, vastly Improved battle system, graphics to make you drool, transformations worthy of the anime, RPG elements with *gasp* story, many extra fun drencehed modes, SSJ4 for gods sake, and least we forget characters and attacks from GT making an appearance, it just might be!! Roll on november!!........
