31 May 2010
Excerpt: The Dragon Ball Z: Budokai series is widely regarded as the best of a multitude of game releases, released over various generations of consoles and based on the popular anime series of the same name. But even being the best, didn’t mean it was the total and elusive fan appeaser.
Summary: Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 is the best game of the DBZ bunch so far and helps each the bad feeling that Budokai 2 brought about. There's still plenty of work to do if they want to make the game perfect but they are slowly but surely getting there.

Conclusion: I share a dark secret with quote a few other people. It is a secret that I am not proud of, but I must admit to now. Here goes... I have watched every TV episode of Dragon Ball Z in my adult life. Agh.
Pros: Huge set piece moves., Huge amount of content lifted from the TV series., Loads to discover in Dragon Universe mode.
Cons: Shallow fighting system., Too much reliance on set pieces.
