    As a stagnating franchise and as an unimportant " new " episode to the video game family, Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is completely stupid still, the sequel is a nice part worth having, but not this .

  1. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is the type of game that will only give you back what you're willing to put into it. [Nov. 2006, p.85]
  2. Outside of some minor quibbles with the user interface and some obscenely difficult matches, the only real snag is the fact that everything's so heavily based in the Dragon Ball Z mythos, there isn't much here for the non-fan to enjoy.
  3. The game was built for DBZ enthusiasts, but anyone who loves a great fighter will get into this high-flying, non-stop experience.
