    Even if past DBZ games have rubbed you the wrong way, and I know a lot of them have, give this one a shot. Unless you are a hardcore fan of Japanese voice tracks, you won't be disappointed.

    Overall I definitely recommend giving Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team a go.

    This is a game with more of the same gameplay like the previous parts. It got a few nice improvements and the Tag Team fights are great. The game is also pretty long and the graphics are very good. The only strange part is that the story in this game isn't correct when we compare it to the real story.

    Being a big DBZ fan, I really wanted to enjoy Dragon Ball Z: Tenchaichi Tag Team, and at first I did. But the game wore thin real quick once I figured out that all of the fighters control exactly the same way and you can win every single fight in the game using the exact same strategy.

    The fighting system in Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team may be simple but keeps things pretty engaging throughout. However, the lack of online multiplayer, the sloppy story mode and the tacked on RPG-system bring this product down.

    Team battles aren't enough to make this latest entry in the Budokai Tenkaichi series stand out from the crowd.

    Completely skippable.

    This game is incredible. The tag team is seriously enjoyable & enthralling. It has incredible gameplay, graphics & sound. A must for all gamers. Especially thrilling is the Battle 100 mode. Have fun, guys. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is delicious, amazing graphics for a portable title and expansive character roster. 70 characters in total (excluding different transformations). So addicting for Dragon Ball Z fans or really fans of any fighting games. Easy to learn controls and combos and the 2v2 feature brings a new view to dbz games. This game is especially fun when you have friends to play with but it's amazing when you don't. Dragon Walker has the entire story mode(Excluding garlic jr saga because no one cares lol)from the saiyan saga to the majin buu saga. It even includes bonus "What if" features where you can play side quests based on what could have happened in the game (Example: what if the ginyu force killed goku) All in all I would pay fully for this game even though I got it free. Amazing for dbz fans and great for people just looking for something to play Expand

    My favorite DBZ game ever. The story follows the plot better than the other games and the graphics are great for the PSP. Most characters of any DBZ game. (Not counting DBZ BoZ)
    A treat for DBZ fans.

    Basically it's Budokai Tenkaichi 3 with tag teams, senzu beans and a few less characters. Dragon Walker, it's story mode, is a huge improvement over the BT3 campaign, since it follows the anime's story more closely, the dialogue is way better and features some entertaining sidequests and "What if..." scenarios. Excellent game overall. The only things that bug me are that the AI on Normal is far too easy and Broly is one overpowered SOB. Oh, and you have to unlock Fusions. Expand
