5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Fighting Games and An Amazing Fan Service! November 7, 2012
Color Name:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First, this review is coming from someone that did not play these games when they originally released. I have, however, played most of the Dragon Ball games released this generation. (except for Raging Blast 2) For those of you that don't know, the Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection is packed with Budokai 1 & 3, NOT the Tenkaichi installments. This HD collection is done well, and packs plenty of content for the price.

The game retells the events of the Dragon Ball Z series. Budokai follows a more traditional storytelling method (w/cutscenes), while Budokai 3 uses the Dragon Universe. Budokai 1 goes up to the final battle with Cell, while Budokai 3 tells the complete story. If you're familiar with the source material, manga or anime, you'll experience many of the memorable events. I should note: the cutscenes and menus are at a 4:3 ratio instead of 16:9 ratio.

The gameplay starts off a bit slow, but as you get a hang of the controls, you'll eventually feel the intensity the series is known for; nothing like lightning fast combos, with a kamehameha to finish! You learn new moves as you progress, and also have the ability to transform in mid-battle. Specifically, X is to punch, Y is to Kick, B is your Ki, and A is to guard. (a bit deeper as you learn, but I won't get too specific.) Both games play as traditional 3D fighters, like Burst Limit.

The graphics are as great as they possibly could be. Remember, these aren't supposed to be full HD remakes like the recent Halo: CE Anniversary. Budokai 1 looks a bit rough, but decent, nonetheless. On the other hand, Budokai 3 looks amazing; the graphics can compete with some of the recent installments in the series and a couple of games released this generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's over 9000!!!! November 6, 2012
Color Name:Playstation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When DBZ Budokai 1 came out I immediately fell in love with the game. 2 years later, Budokai 3 came out and it exploded into a new intense era of DBZ games. I remember spending countless hours and hours playing Budokai 3 and after it's 10 year release of 2002 the series of DBZ Budokai is still amazing. The remastered collection brings out the most upbringing graphics of today's standards. The visuals make the game even more intense and fun as well. To be honest, I was never fond of the Tenkaichi series because it drifted away from the fighting style in which Budokai containted. Although both series have their own set of standards, I choose the Budokai series instead since there was so much action and criteria.

Budokai 1 contains 23 characters
Budokai 3 contains 38 characters including 8 fusions and reincarnations which total 46 characters.

Pros:
Remastered in HD
Supports trophies
Beautiful graphics
Intense action and fighting (especially Budokai 3)

Cons:
No online multiplayer
DBZ Budokai 2 is not included
Price should at least be $30
Other characters should have been imported from DBZ Infinite World such as Super Android 17, Baby Vegeta, Pan, etc.

Nevertheless if you are new to the DBZ Budokai series and like and/or love fast action packed fighting games, then this is the game you will definitely want to pick up and play. As for old comers, you will still enjoy the game it left out since 2002 :D

P.S

For new comers, I would play Budokai 1 first so you can see and learn the origin of how the Budokai series started and as you go into Budokai 3, be prepared to be spend countless hours of staying home and playing it :D

P.S.S

What 9000? :O!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars "...one of the best DBZ games of the PS3 era". February 6, 2014
Color Name:Playstation 3
There is no denying that the Budokai series has been Dragon Ball Z's best series to date. All of the Budokai games were great in their own right, but Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 was in a league of its own and unfortunately set the bar too high out of reach.

Unfortunately, all of the Dragon Ball Z games made in the last 8 years with the exception of Burst limit and Infinite World (which were made from the makers of the original Budokai trilogy) Were based off of the inferior Budokai Tenkaichi games which have no relation to the original Budokai series. These include Budokai Tenkaichi 1-3, Ultimate Tenkaichi and Raging Blast 1 and 2. This is not to say that some of these titles are bad games, because some of them are great and offer an extreme fan service however, when you compare them to "pure fighters" like Budokai 3, it's no contest.

With all that in mind, this HD collection is awesome especially for those who never got to play Budokai or Budokai 3 on the PS2. That being said however, the collection is rather incomplete. The original Budokai series featured 4 games with "Infinite World" being the 4th and spiritual successor to Budokai 3. For some strange reason this collection only contains the first Budokai and Budokai 3 and here is the problem; there is a huge difference between these two games and the inclusion of the "2nd Budokai" could have softened up that transition a little better.

Furthermore, there is no online play which is a major drag and only the actual game-play is rendered in "HD". This could have been the best DBZ collection ever, but it fell short and even though it isn't perfect, this game is not only great, but it is one of the best DBZ games of the PS3 era.
