No filler, no gimmicky customization, and no odd ball gameplay mechanics trying to make it feel fresh. A collection representing the best of the Dragon Ball Z representation in the video game world. Worth buying for the fans. The only thing holding this collection this from being truly amazing and a must own for fighter fans in general is the absence of Budokai 2. Full Review »

    Dragon Ball Z is undoubtedly one of the best anime series of all time, many games were spawned off this franchise but the most well knowDragon Ball Z is undoubtedly one of the best anime series of all time, many games were spawned off this franchise but the most well know series of games were the Budokai series. As far as the collection goes, it isn't great but its far from bad. Budokai 3 still proves itself to be one of the standout games of its generation still holding its own against many great fighting games of today. Budokai 1 however has not aged as well, it feels sloppy and slow in comparison to the great Budokai 3. The absence of Budokai 2 is also a downfall of the collection as it is named "Budokai HD collection". The one thing that did bug me though was the music, entirely new music was used instead of sticking to the original tracks. Though these songs aren't bad the take away from the nostalgic feel of the games. Overall this collection is good but feels like a quick cash grab to a franchise that is struggling to stay alive. Budokai 3 is still great but Budokai 1 feels lacking. The absence of Budokai 2 and the original music do detract from the experience but don't entirely destroy the game. Hopefully the money they make from this release can but put towards a great fighting game for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Full Review »
