This is by far the best DBZ Game on the market except for the Budokai Tenkaichis. The graphics have been completely redone. The music has changed although. The music is form Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and 3, Raging Blast 1 and 2, Tenkaichi Tag Team, and Ultimate Tenkaichi. Budokai 2 is also not include... but don't let that stop you from getting it. The joysticks are a little less responsive than the Playstation 2's or 3's though. Cheat and codes can still be used on Budokai 3. The gameplay is still in the same format. All the modes including Dragon Universe, Dragon Arena, Duel etc.. all return. Budokai 1 only has Japanese voice acting and Budokai 3 only has English voice acting. There are NO Kai voices. Voices do not change after transformations.. you have to do a super attack like a Kamehameha or PPPPE. Use Cheatcc.com if you want codes for the Xbox 360. Hope this helped!
Let me get this out of the way first: I was a big fan of the original Budokai series when it came out for previous consoles. I was super excited to see these two revived on the current generation of consoles, and of course i got it at the first chance. It's a great copy and paste from earlier versions. Even the controls are somewhat similar. The graphics really pop on these games, especially the third installment since it's cell shaded. If you still have the older systems and these games, then this will not be a big change for you. If you haven't played them in a while (like me), then it will take a little bit to get back into the fray of button mashing. The only realistic problems that i can see people having would be that the first game is just as rough with the controls as it was in the past. Also, it is only the first and third games. This may not be a negative for many, but when I first head that this was happening, I was super excited. I wanted to own all three of them, and here they were! I was disappointed to see that the second one was excluded. Still, these games are awesome. In my personal opinion, much better than the Tenkaichi that came after this series. For Fans of DBZ and of fighters, this will definitely be one to add to your collection.
