Dragonball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is by far one of the best Dragonball games yet, it immerses the player into the world of Dragonball and allows you to create your own character. The overall fighting in this game is outstanding and as always the best feature in the game. Dragonball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi does not only include a story mode but it also includes a Hero Mode which leads the player to the GT Series of the show. This game includes the perfect mixture of gameplay and cinematic moments. The blending of gameplay and cinematic is also well used.
New and amazing graphics for the Dragonball series
Leads you to the GT series
Characters resemble themselves as how they should
Im a huge DBZ fan...I gotta say that this is the best one Ive ever played..they let u fly around the DBZ earth world (which is good stuff) Im guessing cause they didnt want to put the actual continents on it for some reason (which would really have been the best stuff)? Best fighter since Budoki to me..great graphics and i can see where they are going with the battle scenes! Its looking awesome by the way!!..the game wouldve be so much better if they couldve got the story completly right..but i understand that this game can be used to see where all they messed up within the making of it..all in all though i see this game as a 8 because i think it couldve been better and i know that it can be improved on and what we got was worth the new game..Good job to the people who made the battle scenes! Great game..Great graphics..worth the rent or buy..maybe not for 50 or 60+ dollars but i recieved it for Christmas...praise our Lord..and have a happy New Years everyone!!!
Now, I'm a huge DBZ fan, I've been playing nearly every game that came out. Ultimate Tenkaichi looks solid on a first impression, but the more you play you realize you're literally doing the same, exact, thing. It doesn't matter what character you're playing, They all do the same exact moves, excluding the super moves, the super moves are all that set each character apart.
The battle system is drivin' fully on luck, a 2 button rush or smash system, if your opponent hits the same button as you durring the clash, he will counter you.
As a die hard DBZ fan, I had a hard time letting this one go so easy, the main reason I sent it back was the hero mode. Standard heroes can have almost all special moves, as the light and heavy have very, VERY limited choices of special moves. Example A: Standard hero can have around 30 different ultimate attacks, Light hero can only get 5, this was a huge let down.
I was looking passed the simple fighting system for creating my own character, but with the standard hero getting all of the customization and the others don't get much at all, I couldn't play it much longer.
The game's graphics are solid, the sounds are as good as they've always been. The story is actually being told believe it or not! Hero mode even has it's own story. I give the game a 4 out of 10 simply because the lack of customization and the battle system.
