Being an old game might stop Budokai 3 looking as good as the later installments but it"s audio certainly still holds up. Energy blasts sound lượt thích they"re ripped straight from the show and punches & kicks sound impactful.

Although where the audio really shines is in the voice acting. For some reason, the voice acting in Dragon Ball games isn"t always stellar despite them hiring the same voice actors from the shows. In Budokai 3 though the performances are brilliant across the board even including the grunts và power-ups during fights (although Vegeta saying "drop dead" every 5 seconds does get repetitive).



Anyone who has seen a major Dragon Ball fight knows that they happen at a frantic pace và are filled with an abundance of special attacks, no Dragon Ball game re-creates that experience better than Tenkaiđưa ra 3. The game"s fluid battles include fists (và feet) thrown at a rapid rate & quick khổng lồ pull off ultimate attacks that don"t take a lot of setting up.

Furthermore, the 3d arena-style gameplay that the Tenkaichi games introduced (which was polished in Tenkaiđưa ra 3) helps lớn give sầu battles that open feeling seen in the shows. While they might not look as good as they used to lớn, Tenkaichi 3"s fights feel more like Dragon Ball than any other game.



Fighting game fanatics who don"t know about Dragon Ball won"t care if the game has the look or feel of the show, they"ll only want a good solid fighting game & that"s what Budokai 3 delivers. Its 2d gameplay involves more depth & requires greater strategy than most of the other installments in the franchise.

There are no auto-combos here nor can you just repeatedly press one button and beat good players, mixing up combos is vital to get the best results. Also, managing your Ki is equally important, as unlike the 3d games there"s little space between you và your opponent, giving you less time to lớn charge up for your best attacks. Tenkaibỏ ra 3"s more user-friendly combat wouldn"t be as enjoyable for non-fans.



Almost all of the Dragon Ball games focus on Dragon Ball Z with very few giving any time to lớn the original Dragon Ball series or Dragon Ball GT. Occasionally a character or two from the less popular Dragon Ball animes might make an appearance, but they"re rarely given much spotlight

Yet in Budokai Tenkaichi 3"s story, you"re able to lớn play the main fights from Goku"s original adventure as well as the biggest ones from GT. Additionally, plenty of fighters from both shows are playable in the game. It"s nice khổng lồ see Dragon Ball getting some respect, and while GT isn"t a good show it did introduce some characters who are a pleasure to lớn play as in Tenkaibỏ ra 3.


Story modes in Dragon Ball games usually boil down to replaying the key fights from the Dragon Ball Z anime, starting with Goku và Piccolo vs Raditz. However, Budokai 3"s Dragon Universe doesn"t only let you play the key fights, you get lớn play pretty much all of them.

You piông xã a character và then play the battles they competed in throughout the anime, meaning there are eleven completely different playthroughs you can have sầu through Dragon Universe (with further playthroughs including hidden extras). As some characters had smaller roles in the story they get much shorter campaigns, for example, you don"t need to lớn take an afternoon off to play through Uub"s story. Still, it"s cool khổng lồ have the ability lớn play battles that are usually ignored by the games.

Tenkaiđưa ra 3"s Dragon History mode might not be able to staông xã up lớn Budokai 3"s Dragon Universe, but it does include a great "what if" saga. What if Android 16 was sent bachồng in time ala Terminator to kill Goku as a child? Or what if the Saiyan race actually fought Frieza and his army instead of being caught unawares? The brilliance of the saga comes from the clever stories surrounding the fights.

It would"ve benefitted from being longer, but the saga is still filled with some entertaining battles. Also, it deserves credit for finally giving Spike The Devil Man some deserved spotlight.


Surprisingly, free-roaming hasn"t been in many Dragon Ball games even though nearly all of the major characters can fly. Budokai 3 implemented it into lớn the Dragon Universe mode though & there is something so satisfying about speeding through the whole world of Dragon Ball finding all the easter eggs, capsules, & of course rồng balls.

Flying from fight to lớn fight makes Dragon Universe feel like a full adventure, unlượt thích in most of the other Dragon Ball games (including Tenkaibỏ ra 3) where the story just feels lượt thích a collection of battles.


Mission 100 is the hidden gem of the Dragon Ball games. It is a phối of 100 fights against pre-mix opponents and for each one you have to lớn build a team that fits into lớn the requirements. For some, you"re tasked with choosing a certain number of fighters và for others you have to create a team with destruction points (DP), with the strongest fighters costing the most DPhường.

It"s a fantastic mode that unfortunately none of the other installments in the series included. Trying khổng lồ get the highly acclaimed Z rating on all 100 missions is an enjoyable & challenging experience.


Budokai 3"s capsule customization is one of the most beloved features in the game. A simple khổng lồ underst& system that allows you lớn fully customize what attacks và transformations characters have. It gives you the freedom khổng lồ tailor characters khổng lồ the way you play lượt thích maybe you want an aggressive Goku so you power hyên up with transformations and attaông chồng boots or perhaps you don"t need the Super Saiyan 4 size so you replace it with defensive sầu powers, the choice is up khổng lồ you.

Taking the time lớn alter the capsules of everyone will give you a more interesting và diverse roster. Other Dragon Ball games have sầu tried lớn implement customization systems, but none of them feel as flexible as the capsules from Budokai 3.


Do you want khổng lồ play as Future Gohan? Or Meta Cooler? Or Spopovich? (for some reason), then Tenkaiđưa ra 3 is the perfect game for you as it features the most amount of characters ever seen in a Dragon Ball game. It is unbelievable how many people are in this game, as almost every fighter who appeared in the Dragon Ball franchise (prior to Super) made the cut.

The 150+ characters add a lot of variety lớn duels, tournaments and the Mission 100 mode. Also, Tenkaibỏ ra 3"s ability khổng lồ deliver dream fights is unmatched by any other Dragon Ball game.
