Game Profile

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 delivers an extreme 3D fighting experience, improving upon last year’s game with over 150 playable characters, enhanced fighting techniques, beautifully refined effects and shading techniques, making each character's effects more realistic, and over 20 battle stages. In addition, an improved control system for the Wii will allow players to more easily mimic signature moves and execute devastating energy attacks as they are performed in the Dragon Ball Z animated series.

This is the ultimate chapter in Budokai Tenkaichi series with over 20 new characters that have never been seen in any other DBZ video games such as Nail, King Cold and King Vegeta and battle stages that fans will love. Each year, the developers refine the game to bring fans closer to feeling like they are actually playing the show.

In addition to the unprecedented number of characters and improved Wii control system, the environments have also been enhanced to feature day and night stages. The power of the moon in the night stages gives players additional ways to transform their characters and lets fans recreate some of their favorite memories from the show.

I'm on the fence about this. I'm not that big on DBZ but it looks like an interesting fighter.

Like the show and manga, this rocks! I rented this game countless times from the library (over 20) and finally purchased it. This game has infinite replayability, and you have to work hard to unlock characters (still haven't gotten fasha! Arrggh!). And the story is awesome! There are secrets to discover in that (try looking in the majin buu series). Get this if u can! It's worth it!
