    The budokai and the tenkaichi series made my childhood alongside with the anime they are based one. One of the greatest fighting games, if you really are a dbz fan. Go get it!

    This is an excellent game. It has the basic necessities of any DBZ game. Graphics, controls, characters, and camera control. I love the story mode an gameplay. It fits so well with the DBZ storyline. The graphics are indescribable. The controls are really great. The character roster is superb, along with the transformations. The camera is also great. All in all, this game is great, but theThis is an excellent game. It has the basic necessities of any DBZ game. Graphics, controls, characters, and camera control. I love the story mode an gameplay.

  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.
