nice fighting game
31 October 2003 | by Wassup2See all my reviews

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai is the best Dragon Ball Z game ever. They used the actors from the tv show and they translated the characters well to being 3d. The combo based system works better for this game than a basic fighting game's style would. Although this isn't one of the best fighting games around, if you're a DBZ fan, get this game!
