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!

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:
Kid Goku (dragonball NOT GT)
Kid Gohan
Teen Gohan
Gohan (adult)
kid Trunks
Majin Buu
Super Buu
Kid Buu
Freiza (all forms)
Cell (all forms)
Hercule/Mr. Satan
Captain Ginyu

By A Customer on 19 Mar. 2005
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!!!!

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.
