    Score/Nota: 7.3 /10

    Dragon Ball is a series to which video games have always been good for him since having many charismatic characters and having such a simple concept, his products tend to be at least decent.

    The battle system is quite different from your typical 2D fighting game as this saga always tried to recreate a 3D game experience and although it has never been fully achieved, we cant say that the game is bad, it is in fact an interesting experience, that although it never finishes to square, it comes out afloat thanks to its extensive roster of characters, which are very well differentiated. The scenarios have no implication in the battle, beyond a rock or mountain that serves to cover, really are not relevant, while in the combos section, it remains traditional, with a wide range of them, which produce as usually a great satisfaction when performing them.

    In the sound sections the game is correct and technically it is quite fluid, except in the occasions that a super attack is made, produces a slight delay, but nothing that ruins the experience. The game modes fulfill their main function, which is to lengthen the content of the game, although its quality is very poor, as the story mode to give a vague example.

    To finish and as in any good fighting game, its maximum juice is squeezed when playing cooperative and although its online functions are very mediocre, locally becomes an addictive delight. It is not the best fighting game that DB has offered, but to be fair, it ends with a positive balance. 7.3/10

    Dragon Ball es una serie a la cual los videojuegos siempre le han venido bien ya que al contar con bastantes personajes carismáticos y poseer un concepto tan simple, sus productos suelen ser como mínimo decentes.

    El sistema de batalla es bastante distinto a tu típico juego de pelea en 2D ya que siempre esta saga intento recrear una experiencia de juego en 3D y aunque nunca lo ha logrado de manera total, no podemos decir que el juego sea malo, es de hecho una experiencia interesante, que aunque nunca termina de cuadrar, sale a flote gracias a su extenso roster de personajes, los cuales están muy bien diferenciados. Los escenarios tienen nula implicación en la batalla, mas allá de alguna roca o montaña que sirve para cubrir, realmente no son relevantes, mientras que en el apartado de combos, se mantiene tradicional, contando con una gran gama de ellos, los cuales producen como de costumbre una gran satisfacción al momento de realizarlos.

    En apartados sonoros el juego es correcto y técnicamente es bastante fluido, salvo en las ocasiones que se realiza algún super ataque, ya que muchas veces se produce un leve retardo, pero nada que arruine la experiencia. Los modos de juego cumplen con su función principal, que es alargar el contenido del juego, aunque su calidad sea paupérrima, como el modo historia por dar un vago ejemplo.

    Para finalizar y como en todo buen juego de peleas, su máximo jugo se exprime al momento de jugar en cooperativo y aunque sus funciones en línea sean muy mediocres, de manera local se vuelve todo un deleite adictivo. No es el mejor juego de peleas que ha ofrecido DB, pero para ser justos, termina con un balance positivo. 7.3/10

    Even tho this game is good it is way to overrated. The story mode is not very good bt2's story mode was miles better. The gameplay was very good and the soundtrack was miles better then bt2's. There also A LOT OF CHARACTERS, i mean there are 161 different characters with different special attacks. But if you only play dbz games for the story mode you should probably skip this game.

    I'm usually a bit more eloquent with my writing, but simply put, this game was awful. I rented it for a day, and never bought it or played it after that. It delivered none of the fun and the excitement that transpired playing Budokai 3 with friends and family. The controls scheme was horrible, full of meaningless and repetitive button mashing. The voice acting was really terrible,I'm usually a bit more eloquent with my writing, but simply put, this game was awful. I rented it for a day, and never bought it or played it after that. It delivered none of the fun and the excitement that transpired playing Budokai 3 with friends and family. The controls scheme was horrible, full of meaningless and repetitive button mashing. The voice acting was really terrible, especially noticeable with super and ultimate attacks. Supers and ultimates were done poorly and gave you none of the satisfaction that the ones with Budokai 3 gave you. The disc fusion was a gimmick and the potara earings for customizing your character was no where near as good as the capsule system. The capsule system wasn't perfect either, but it was much better than the potara earing system. The soundtrack of Budokai 3 was superb. The soundtrack for Tenkaichi 3 was gutter trash. I really don't understand why some people even liked this game. They have to get their head screwed back on straight. Expand

  1. Undeniably the best DBZ game to date. The fighting engine has been considerably deepened, the Dragon History mode is flawed but great, and the graphics far surpass the anime.

    After three games, you should know by now that this series is primarily for longtime fans, and they have plenty to like. [Holiday 2007, p.82]
  3. The game isn't great, but it delivers the goods for the fans, and that's all it really needs to do.
