    Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi is the best Dragon Ball beat'em up to date. It relates the entire Dragon Ball Z saga with barely any story gaps and includes original scenes from the anime. The graphics are well done and the gameplay is surprisingly diverse for a beat'em up. The only problem are the controls, which are not as exact as they should be. Overall, this game is a must-have for any Dragon Ball Z fan.

    At the end of the day, Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is an interesting addition to the franchise but when it comes to originality, the game is a little lacking.

    The battle presentation is spot on, and the system is half way there, but Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is still only half way to being the Ultimate Dragon Ball Z experience.

    Anime fans will devour it alive, but everyone else probably won't get just what the hell Cell is.

    The yearly releases of Namcos franchise are having their toll. This year Spike delivers the worst game in the series that suffers from far too many QTEs, a bland fighting system and poor script.

    Ultimate Tenkaichi suffers due to a very limited combat system. This is all luck and no skill. The story with the clips from the cartoon make things bearable, but there isn't any other motivation to keep playing this game.

    Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is an incredible looking game that is marred by one of the worst fighting engines I've ever seen.

    i really enjoyed this game, i think it's alot better than battle of z. the story mode and the boss fights were awesome, they really capturedi really enjoyed this game, i think it's alot better than battle of z. the story mode and the boss fights were awesome, they really captured the dbz fighting on here but the thing it lacks is the fighting they needed to give the player more control when fighting not do a two hit combo and immediately start hitting him without the players control, other than that i recommend this game Expand

    eu estava muito empolgado com o Ultima Tenkaichi, mais me decepcionei demais com o jogo, obvio que tem pontos positivos, como por exemplo aeu estava muito empolgado com o Ultima Tenkaichi, mais me decepcionei demais com o jogo, obvio que tem pontos positivos, como por exemplo a qualidade da animaçao, principalmente nas cutscenes, tem bastante personagens, muitos mapas, boa trilha sonora, e nao apenas segue o anime, como tambem tem partes de alguns filmes, oque é muito legal, mais o jogo é muito repetitivo, é sempre o mesmo estilo na hora de bater, ele bate joga o cara para um lado depois para o outro, e vai assim ate voce vencer ele, e isso é um saco, mesmo eu gostando do enredo, ta ficando chato todo jogo do Dragon Ball seguir a mesma historia, ta na hora de mudar isso (oque felizmente o Xenoverse fez), Ultimate Tenkaichi nao é ruim, mais é muito repetitivo e nao inova em nada. Nota 5.0 Expand

    The sad truth is that this game had it all, but threw it all out the window with the repetitive rock, paper, scizors fighting style. TheThe sad truth is that this game had it all, but threw it all out the window with the repetitive rock, paper, scizors fighting style. The cinematics, dialogue(although lacking mouth movrment) and story is probably the best ever seen in a DBZ game. Unfortunately the combat ruins it all, and this IS afterall a fighting game. Expand
