    If you haven't played the first then you will feel this a nice game. For fans this is a terrible ordeal; no Budokai 2, no original soundtrack, no online.

    All you will find is an old game with HD graphics.

    Overall VERY FEW changes.

    A 40$ price slapped on for the same game on a new platform.

    Kids, save your money.

    The first half of Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection is near pointless, but fans of the franchise will be delighted with Budokai 3. It's still the most balanced and detailed Dragon Ball fighting game available, and is a testament to how good licensed games can be when given the opportunity to evolve. It's just a shame that we never got a fourth instalment.

    Like all of the HD remakes that have come out in the past few years, Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection is meant to capitalize on the nostalgia from older players who want their favorites on a current system, with the appropriate care taken during the transition. In a way, it works.
  3. The bargain basement price should entice fans into reliving their glory days but offers very little else. [Christmas 2012, p.80]
