  1. Though nothing truly remarkable, it does provide a great follow up to an already good game. Fans of the PSP and of DBZ should already be on their way to the game store now to pick up this latest installment that will keep you busy for hours.
  2. Rabid fans will struggle to ignore its charms, but if you're not DBZ inclined Vegeta 'bout it. [July 2007, p.77]

    It certainly won't draw any new fans that the last game couldn't have, but it should appease fans for a fair bit of time, especially with its multi-tiered storyline.
  4. Dragon Ball fans who just want to battle it out can stick to the arcade gameplay, but the main story mode that differentiates it brings far more frustration than enjoyment.
  5. Only fans desperate for another DBZ on the go should pick this one up. [June 2007, p.86]
  6. 60
    Wireless warriors should snap this one up – despite some flaws, there are lots of new options for showing off your skills against other human opponents. Everyone else may as well pick up one of the earlier (and likely much cheaper) games instead.
  7. 50
    This is average stuff, and occasionally it's worse than that. [Issue#154, p.76]

It adds many new characters, moves, and gameplay elements. Also a brand new "alternate" storyline brings a fresh experience to a Budokai game that we haven't seen since Budokai 1 for the PS2 (which gave us the original DBZ storyline). Expand
