So Close but still Good

This is a very good game. The best combination of everything good from all the previous DBZ including before it became Tenkaichi. The speed is great way faster than the previous installments. Competitive matches with the CPU. The History mode improves on telling the story with in game dialog, and beating the characters the way it was done in the cartoon show. the sheer amount of characters is a plus on its own. The bad part of the game is that the movie intro is horrible compared to the first one done for Tenkaichi 1. I don't understand why the intro for part one was not continued throughout the rest of the series. Shiny character models do not mean good graphics. The character models in Tenkaichi 3's opening are shiny, very stiff and rigid, plus there is no real direction. they just put in 3 characters from each side. The Tenkaichi 1 opening was beautiful and had great direction. The characters were not shiny, it was a great transition from 2-D to 3-D. the impact of the characters was amazing. When they hit one another you felt it(the way it should be). The History mode drops the ball a bit. Yes you have to defeat characters the way you did in the show and the in game dialog is a great touch.WE still miss parts such as Goku holding Raditz so Piccalo can hit him with the special beam cannon. Or Vegeta actually killing Nappa. The biggest disappointment is the fact they this game is still on PS2 when it should have been on PS3. I know these little things are not that big of an issue but I look at the whole game from the packaged art to the actual game. Over all it is still great hence my score of 9 outta 10. Can not wait for the next gen version of this game.
