I give this title a fair rating only because, Budokai 1 is just awful, it didn't give me a chance to unlock hidden characters because there is no story menu to select the bits of story, i've experienced in game lag, while playing offline in budokai1. However, budokai 3 was still as epic as ever!
Some of the achievements were annoying as heck, but I enjoyed every moment of the game. The story is spot on and the action leaves you on the edge of your seat. There is a mode that will actually challenge your skill, regardless of how good you are - leaving the best of players annoyed, but motivated to improve their skill. Highly recommended especially for DBZ fans
