    So the single player game is boring and the multiplayer is mundane and bland. What is left to enjoy about Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi then? Not much at all I'm afraid.
  2. 40
    Although Tenkaichi does offer genuine enjoyment, if only briefly, it comes as small consolation for the relative merits of recent prequels, and while eager young gamers will be enthused, those looking for a more brain-busting and evolutionary experience shouldn’t expect too much.

    Bad game..very bad game. I mean..if you want a good DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi game then play the 2nd one. The characters are just...wow. IBad game..very bad game. I mean..if you want a good DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi game then play the 2nd one. The characters are just...wow. I mean...seriously...they look like Minecraft blobs on crack. The gameplay and story alike are just wow. It's good...but not that perfect. The camera sucks, the controls are easy to maneuver and the best this game can do is give you a good Character Introduction mode. All in all...this game sucks. Full Review »

    Lo jugué hace 8 años o mas, y me pareció bueno , lo disfrute bastante y me lo pase en enseguida . Otro punto a favor que tenía este juego eraLo jugué hace 8 años o mas, y me pareció bueno , lo disfrute bastante y me lo pase en enseguida . Otro punto a favor que tenía este juego era la campaña, muy larga y entretenída. El resto de modos tambien eran buenos, como por ejemplo derrotar a 100 enemigos, o las clasicas batallas 1 vs 1. Los gráficos estaban muy bien hechos . Hicieron un buen juego para los fans de dragon ball . Full Review »
