    In my first day (years ago), DBZ got what it needed ,improved in the way we always wanted to, destructibility , the clothing messed up , etc. Replaying then, i don't see the logic of the sense, the wacky fighting, weird structure , unnecessary new entry whatever. Spending 50 bucks wasn't reasonable.

    DBZ BT2 conducted in 2006 with a good story mode which follows almost cartoon fashion with several that are part of the game that makes fun of the person who plays, Spike has not really his game rate.

    in my opinion, this is the best DBZ to date, the fighting is really fun, the multiplayer is very addictive and the graphics are really good for the ps2. This game might be more fun for a DBZ fan but it is just a fun game in general.

    Bad game..very bad game. I mean..if you want a good DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi game then play the 2nd one. The characters are 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. Expand

    Throw in a massively deep list of modes and features, more than 50 playable characters, and customizable goodies for your fighters and you have everything necessary to please both Dragon Ball diehards and fighting game curiosos alike.

    Tenkaichi succeeds in all the areas that DBZ fans love: brilliant, innovative graphics, a gajillion (more than 60, actually) playable characters from the beloved anime series, and (everyone together) Saiyans!
  3. It’s novel, it’s a good fighting game and it’s extremely well presented, but Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi is still one for the fans.
