Summary: PS3 fans are probably tired of HD collections at this point, since they likely played the games already on PS2, but a lot of these collections feature games that weren't released on the original Xbox so they are like exciting new releases for X360 fans rather than tired rehashes. The latest HD collection is the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection.
Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection (XBOX 360/PS3)
11 December 2012
Conclusion: For the price point it’s a great title to own if you’re looking to play a Dragon Ball title. The series has been around for longer than I have but the characters are still endearing and fun to play as. However, don’t expect to be surprised when you’ve heard it all before. As for the series as a fighting genre this is the game you will want to pick up as the entry has Budokai 3 and that alone is worth the entry.
Pros: Understanding the games are almost ten years old, I find the restoration to be a welcome touch. Both titles benefit from the touch ups, but, I found that Budokai 3 looked far better when played. The cut scenes look great and the animations flow well. The rosters for both games are large. The first game features 23 characters to choose from, and the third hits a high of 40 characters to choose from. The content typical to the series starts at the beginning of the Z sto...
Cons: The dubs are the original from when these games were first released so the quality is not on par with more recent releases. The first game doesn’t even have the original Japanese audio that most enthusiasts love. The collection is a remix so don’t expect any new story changes or tweaks in regards to the content. The story is stale now and will be year after year. Game play is unbalanced like it was when these titles were first released. Budokai 1 was given a few tweak...
Summary: " Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection " does exactly what it sets out to do, so I suppose in that regard it is completely successful. While your personal mileage may vary with the game, both of the titles contained within are great examples of the series, and together provide and interesting insight into how DBZ has developed over its years in game form.
Excerpt: It has been a little while since I've had something Dragon Ball-related to review. Last year's Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi was a visually stunning, but ultimately rather shallow button-mashing fighter, and without a Xbox 360 Kinect, Dragon Ball Z Kinect isn't a review I'll be writing any time soon (but that doesn't mean I didn't buy the game anyway...).
Summary: This HD collection gives players the Dragon Ball Z game they've been asking for ... and also brings the original Budokai along for the ride. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection delivers the action you expect, and not much more. A few questionable design decisions, shallow fighting mechanics and a complete lack of online play makes this yet another disappointing HD compilation! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
Excerpt: Ask anybody outside of Japan today what the first three anime they watched or heard of were, and you’ll most likely find Dragon Ball Z listed as one of them. Akira Toriyama’s masterfully created story and universe has become a behemoth in the media world and has for a long time already featured in the gaming world.
Conclusion: ACHIEVEMENTS - 8 and 8 I am happy by these achievements, somehow, they managed to put all the game mechanics in the achievements, which means, to do them, you need to play all that the game can offer. CONCLUSION - 8 out of 10 - The best DBZ of this generation +Good Graphics +Good Story Modes +Many Characters +Tournament Mode Fun +Good Voices and Sound Effects +Perfect Gameplay in Budokai 3 -Clumsy gameplay in Budokai 1 -No re-playability -Original soundtrack removed
Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection (Xbox 360) Review

Summary: is likely to only appeal to the few of you who are still Dragon Ball Z fans. For most of us, we grew up and abandoned childish shows and childish games. The collection is a nice trip down memory lane, but that’s really all it is. The nostalgia factor goes away after a while in either game, because of antiquated game design makes it a more frustrating experience, rather than the fun experience you remember from a decade ago.

Conclusion: Explosions, Action, and Anime whats not to love? This is a solid HD port of two great fighting games, though there are still quirks in many parts of the games playing them is still a very enjoyable experience.
