Best Anime game, period

Altough I like more technical 3d fighting games like Tekken and Soul Calibur I still was enjoying myself in the simple yet satisfying style of Budokai 3.

Story: Covers the entire Universe of DBZ and the ending of DBGT. you fly aound the overworld as any of the good guys and even Broly. I was kinda pissed that they didn't have the awesome cutscenes Budokai one had and instead used lazy still pics and sound in the background. In tyhis mode is where you unlock characters and cool items to use in other modes in the game.

Gameplay: This game added new elements to the fighting styles. One of my favorites is Dragon rush, altough cool the first couple of times it gets annoying when your friends spam it every chance they get so that they have cheap damage added. Teleporting is also another cool feature. The teleporting makes every fight unpredictable and exciting.

Characters: You play as nearly everybody on the show, even people who are movie exclusive. Altoguh DBZ isn'r known to be the smartest show It still feels awesome going SSJ and kicking ass.

Sound: The voice acting is the same as the show, but you notice that the voice actors are trying to get through it as fast as they can (it's understandable since they are probably the most hard worke VAs in history). All the nostalgic sounds are still there, even the annoying Cell voice. HE's IN PERFECT MODE! WHY DOES HE HAVE THE IMPERFECT VOICE!?!!!???

VS: This is a fun game to play with friends. Nowhere near the awesomeness of Tekken or Soul Cal, it still is simple and easy for anyone to get in.

Value: right now it's at a bargain price so if you're a fan of the show and of fighting games this is the game for you (not like those crappy Tenkaichi games...)
