Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team is a good attempt to bring something new to a long-running fighting series that has more or less become stagnant over the past few releases. Unfortunately, the push to have a Tenkaichi game on the PSP doesn't seem to have been the best idea.
Summary: The tag team fighting game is nothing new; we see it whenever a company has more characters than they know what to do with. Instead of trying to shoehorn everybody into a new sequel, we get games like Tekken Tag Tournament or Mortal Kombat Trilogy.
Conclusion: Tenkaichi is an alright game but nothing really new is added to what they have released in the past. 70 fighters are great but the game is so repetitive (even with the other additions) you won’t even bother to finish the campaign unless you’re a true DBZ fan.
Excerpt: Seriously, are they even trying anymore? In yet another retelling of the Dragonball Z saga, DBZ Tenkaichi Tag Team shows the gang from the arrival of Raditz and the discovery of Goku's alien origins through to the saga of Majin Buu.
Pros: Able to “customize” characters, Graphics look all right on PSP, ...but only in free play, Voice-acting cuts out, Boring, shallow fights, Worst. Storytelling. EVER.

Summary: Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team might have a shiny new gimmick, but it is still the same old song and dance as every other DBZ fighter in the past decade. If you like those games, you’ll like this. If you didn’t, the tag mechanics aren’t going to do anything to change your mind.
Gamertell Review: Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team for PSP
21 October 2010
Excerpt: Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team has the honor of introducing a lot of new elements into a PSP Dragon Ball game. It’s the first portable Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi game for one, and has battles with up to four characters participating in each match.
Pros: Story mode covers the Dragon Ball Z storyline well, over 40 different characters, different outfits for many characters, environment can sometimes be destroyed with attacks, nice selection of special moves, can upgrade characters with points and items, ad-hoc multiplayer for 2-4 people, has loadi...
Cons: Sporatic voice acting, battles drag on needlessly, many battles can easily be beaten with button mashing and story mode missions are occasionally tedious. It’s also quite easy to get discombobulated when fighting, since characters are always flying and zipping around the area.
Conclusion: Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team ist zu einfach. Nicht nur der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist unglaublich niedrig angesetzt, sondern auch der allgemeine Tenor des Spiels hört sich einfach platt und langweilig an. Schon wieder die Z- plus Boo-Saga? Die kennen Fans inzwischen innen und auswending.
Pros: Optisch ziemlich gut, Steuerung leicht zu lernen…, Über 70 Charaktere (!), Neue Rüstung/Items verbessern die Kämpfer, Umfangreicher Story-Mode…, „Freie“ Welt mit einigen versteckten Goodies, Lokaler Mehrspieler-Modus…
Cons: Kaum echte Neuerungen zu den älteren Spielen vorhanden, … aber im Grunde bereits aus Vorgängern bekannt und damit trivial, … der inzwischen zu stark ausgelutscht wurde. Nutzt die GT-Saga verdammt!, … kein Online-Modus, Spiel durchweg zu einfach, Unglaublich nervige Wiederbelebungen
