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 like they"re ripped straight from the show and punches and 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 Tenkaibỏ ra 3. The game"s fluid battles include fists (and feet) thrown at a rapid rate and quichồng to 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 Tenkaichi 3) helps lớn give battles that open feeling seen in the shows. While they might not look as good as they used lớn, Tenkaiđưa ra 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 và 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 và 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 & your opponent, giving you less time khổng lồ 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 khổng lồ 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 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, và 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 lớn 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 to lớn play pretty much all of them.

You piông xã a character and 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 khổng lồ take an afternoon off khổng lồ play through Uub"s story. Still, it"s cool to lớn have the ability lớn play battles that are usually ignored by the games.


Tenkaibỏ ra 3"s Dragon History mode might not be able to lớn staông chồng up to Budokai 3"s Dragon Universe, but it does include a great "what if" saga. What if Android 16 was sent baông chồng in time ala Terminator khổng lồ kill Goku as a child? Or what if the Saiyan race actually fought Frieza & 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 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, and of course rồng balls.

Flying from fight khổng lồ fight makes Dragon Universe feel lượt thích a full adventure, unlike in most of the other Dragon Ball games (including Tenkaichi 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 set of 100 fights against pre-mix opponents and for each one you have sầu lớn build a team that fits into lớn the requirements. For some, you"re tasked with choosing a certain number of fighters and for others you have sầu to lớn 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 to 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 to lớn understvà system that allows you khổng lồ fully customize what attacks & transformations characters have sầu. It gives you the freedom to lớn tailor characters lớn the way you play lượt thích maybe you want an aggressive Goku so you power hyên ổn up with transformations & attaông chồng boots or perhaps you don"t need the Super Saiyan 4 size so you replace it with defensive powers, the choice is up khổng lồ you.

Taking the time to lớn alter the capsules of everyone will give sầu you a more interesting and diverse roster. Other Dragon Ball games have tried khổng lồ 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 Tenkaichi 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 lớn Super) made the cut.

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