I never played Budokai when it originally came out for Playstation 2 so I was excited when I heard they were making an HD remake. First thing I noticed was the differences between 1 and 3. 1 has the best story mode I've seen in almost any Dragonball Z game but the characters look kinda strange, the best example would be Gohan in the opening parts of the story mode, his body looks way to long for a child. While 3 has the best character models in any Dragonball Z game but the story mode is just confusing and strange because there's not just one complete story mode, there's multiple story modes with multiple main characters and some of them are only three or four fights long. But the biggest issue with both games would have to be the lack of online play, I mean it's 2012 and they decide not to add online play. That could possibly turn a lot of people away, plus the confusing controls might do it as well. I now see why a lot of people prefer Bodukai Tenkaichi controls than Budokai. But overall if they would've added online play and the second game that was mysteriously not put in for some reason, then this game would been an eight or nine instead of just a six.

Do not get me wrong, I love DBZ. It was my favorite show as a kid. I rented this game hoping an easy platinum. I was quickly reminded how repetitive this game is. DBZ Budokai HD looks similar to Naruto's video game graphics. The platinum is pretty difficult and the AI is VERY cheap. Be weary.
