Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi - Playstation 2 (Released October 6th 2005)

This is the first of the Tenkaichi series to come from the Dragon Ball Z games and contains enough gameplay to keep a gamer occupied for around 2 weeks or so, maybe more. With 56 fully playable characters and 16 stages of battle, each of these battle grounds are all made up of elements relevant to the animated series of Dragon Ball Z. Right from the beginning to the end of the show, with tutorials and practice matches it doesnt matter if you have seen or played previous Dragon Ball/ Dragon Ball Z games, controllers are very easy and adept to use.

Some battles seem impossible, some matches end in under a minute, whether your fighting in the sky, under water, ground or in a different dimension it always remains action packed. It doesnt get harder as you fight your way through the game, its a good "beat or be beat game" either way, watching your favourite characters coming through victorious is always a good thing.

You can replay each and every single battle which occurs in the show, which is a great feature for any Dragon Ball Z fan, as well as being able to collect the Dragon Balls to unlock hints, tips, cheats and a selection of others, this all adds on to the fairness adventure of the game.

I personally really enjoy this game's features such as the 3D destructable surroundings and the gradual "Look how you feel" as you're health decreases the appearance of the character becomes more rugged. Could be referred to as a "Faster Tekken". It's a real controller buster, before starting a game be sure to have an array of controllers and nerves of steel!

Negatives are as follows:- An extortionate amount of loading screens, frequent pauses and jams whilst selecting character, very annoying music! no auto saves, but the most unappealing about this is the lack of valuable cut scenes that are very important to non watchers of the series!

I strongly recommend that any Dragon Ball Z fan should try this game out.




Score : 9.5/10

Lock these old review threads who get bumped by advertisers?

Haha Tal why bump a 7 month old thread just to say that a pic was from the wrong game.

Anyway, I have this game, and despite not being a big DBZ fan, I really did enjoy this game, was a very refreshing take on beat em up's, many of which can feel very alike and predictable. Though how well this game did with the market outside the fanbase I don't know, I doubt the franchise would make much of a mark in todays market.

I don't know maybe for discussion, anyway Vyse i didn't know you had a Dragonball Z game =O Have you completed this one yet? I have but the story mode gets repetitive and as a fan i was disappointed with the voice-actors and the lack of effort put into it.

I have finished it yep, thought it was pretty good, though I'm not fanatic or anything about the anime, so I wasn't picking stuff up, like oh I remember this bit from here, or, why am I fighting him now. I just played through the story, and enjoyed what I could understand.

Talentz
20-10-2009, 10:37 PM
haha. It would greatly help if you actually watched the anime or re-watched it because the way the cut-scenes goes is terrible =/ '' You came down... then a terrible speech occurs then step back... then ''ready'' '' lmao just so gay..

Very true in fact, but i was looking forward to the first Dragonball Z 3D game, to be perfect. There making a 4th one for PS3/360.

Well I have played some of the later DBZ games too, though only for a short time as my brother actually bought them, and I just had a quick go. They seemed ok, just like this one, but with more characters I had no idea who they were, and more flashing attacks, never got around to seeing the 1 player mode, but the Cell games (is that right) tournament was great.

Nice review, but prehaps a bit overrated, anyway I think tenkaiachi 3 is the best one.

Thought I made a comment on this..odd

As you've said a beat 'em up with a some fights challenging and an easy to adopt fighting system,I enjoyed have the extra techniques like solar flare,spirit bomb,explosive wave and charge to full.

Only problem is that in later games the explosive waves (and super explosive wave attack) seem to block less and less special attacks.

Good review though :D

<.< what had me stuck trying to get used to the battle system was "Super Dragonball Z" for the PS2,was not used to it at all.

Nice. I haven't tried this but I got Tenkaichi 3 on the Wii and it's one of the best fighting games I've ever played.
