What is the best Dragon Ball Z game out at the moment?

What it says on the tin. Console: Xbox 360.

I fancy playing a Dragon Ball Z game but there seems to be alot out. I played budokai 2 and 3, I think, years ago and i enjoyed them. The main factors i am interested in is gameplay and number of characters, i am not too fussed about the quality of the story mode.

Thanks in advance! :)

Depends on the person. Personally I think Budokai 3 was the best DBZ fighting game, others will say Tenkaichi Budokai 3.

Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 beats the hell out of Ultimate Tenkaichi by far.

I don't need to mention Dragonball Z: Kinect, either. It is a Kinect title. That should be enough to avoid it.

Go with Raging Blast 2. You won't be disappointed.

DO NOT listen to this person, Raging Blast 2 is hands down a piece of shit according to myself and anyone else I have spoken to. Get the first Raging Blast, at least it has a killer story mode. Raging Blast 2 has a terrible art style and the story mode is fucked up, as in it is non existant! I would go with burst limit over raging blast 2. There is one "mission" in Vegeta's "story line" in RB2, where you have to beat android 16, 17, and 18 without getting hit once, impossible pure and simple.

Tenkaichi 3 was really good too, it had future Gohan!

Budakai Tenkaichi 2/3. Both are the same functionally, but different move sets, and 3 has more characters and much faster combat making it harder. The games are balanced (Not counting Gojeta Super Saiyan 4, Jenemba form 2, and Super Android 17. They are all broken as FUCK and to be banned if you are playing against others. Gojeta and Jenemba are way to fast and strong, and Super Android 17 has broken attacks and can absorb all energy attacks. Even the most powerful ones.)

Also avoid the Kinect title. It sucks.

I absolutely love Budokai Tenkaichi 3, all upgrades counted as different chars I think that game comes up to about 150 different characters
I haven't played too many others than the Budokai series except on GameBoy, but can't remember the names of those, in those you walk through the story of DBZ, very enjoyable games, they're like the Zelda games on GB except in the DBZ universe

Go with the Kinect title. It is by far the pinnacle of gaming and immersion for this console generation

Joking aside, I would go with Budokai Tenkaichi 3, that has probably been my favourite.

Thanks for basically telling the entirety of this thread that my opinion sucks and therefore should be invalid. That's quite...something of you. I haven't played the first Raging Blast, and was merely speaking from experience.

Sue me.

Actually, Tenkaichi 2 AI was simply really weak, even in its hardest setting

Raging Blast 2 is AWESOME.

Lack of story mode?!
Oh no? do we REALLY want to go through that story again?
I'm sorry, I love DBZ but by now everyone and their grandmother knows the story.

It's a really awesome game and it's just great to see the face of your opponent if you finish them off with a team attack.

oh, and p.s. Raging Blast 2 also has Future Gohan.

I would have to say Budokai 3 for the best system to character/mode ratio. However I really enjoy Burst Limit, I'm kind of disappointed that a sequel wasn't made.

Depends on what sort of things you enjoy.

If you want a more traditional fighter: Budokai 3 on the PS2, or the recent Budokai HD collection for next-gen.

If you want a non-traditional fighter: Either Tenkaichi 3 or Raging Blast 2. Tenkaichi 3 has more strategy than the Raging Blast series, but personally, I generally find Raging Blast more fun to play.

EDIT: Also, as has been stated, Raging Blast 2's story mode is basically a gauntlet of varied fights... which I honestly found to be a nice change from the same story over and over.

I never actually played with the AI that much. I beat the game innitially then just played with my friends. After my file got deleted I used an action Replay to unlock everything cause I could not ass myself to do it all again. AND I also hacked in x999 of every item. Made every character level 160 with Kiss of Android 18's just to make the fights with my friends fucking fun. As long as everybody is absolute max power there is no disadvantage now is there? XD

SS4 Gojeta, Jenemba, and Super Android 17 were still banned though. It is too easy to curb stomp with those three.

And Yes DBZBT3 has much faster combat then 2. Luckily the controls and over all feel was the same.

Obviously, it is DBZ Kinect.


BEHOLD ITS GLORY!

Yeah, but I bought that game for full price and felt ripped off, it was super hard on the easiest setting for no reason. Plus, after tenkaichi 3, Future Gohan isn't enough unless he is the true future Gohan. With only ONE arm!

I think Tenkaichi 3 is the best, it was a fun fighting game that ACTUALLY felt like DBZ, something I thought Budokai never did. Tenkaichi3 had all sorts of cool events that felt like they were taken right from the show, Budokai felt like Street Fighter with bigger and more frequent fireballs.

Budokai 3, or Budokai Tenkaichi 3. Every other game in their own series feels like beta, the 3rd one seem to get most things right. Now the Raging Blast series never got their "good" 3rd game yet.

Theres also Super Dragon Ball Z, which isnt that special but some people might like that the fighting system is like Street Fighter.

Story mode wise Budokai 1 and Burst Limits are the best, recreating every moment in cutscenes, however they all suffer frm the same thing: they both stop at the Cell saga.

Also this: never play Dragon Ball Z Sagas. Theres no DBZ game as terrible as that, what a waste of TOEI animation for the intro.:/

Budokai 3, or Budokai Tenkaichi 3. these are the only ones that are great games in my thoughts after wards they tried to add to much and they made it way to overly complex whereas before its was simple yet deep

Budokai Tenkaichi 3, while it may not have the graphics of the new gen, gameplay wise none of the others have come even close to matching it.

Bro. Bro. Go Get DargonBall Z Budokai HD collection. Thank me when the nostalga boner goes down :)1

If memory serves you can equip a health recovery itemn and just bide your time for a little while avoiding attacks until your health comes back up to a level you can fight at. Not impossible just stupid.

Although I agree that Raging Blast 2 is pretty bad for more reasons than that, Raging Blast 2 is pretty severly broken. Did I mention it's horribly glitchy? Here's a video recorded by a friend of mine where we encounter not one but two glitches in the same match, the first being a spirit bomb not quite working as planned(at the 10:53 mark) the second where Teen Gohan wigs out and begins to do the worm which was actually a game breaker where we had to quit out of the match. (11:55 on)

That, on top of a myriad of other cheap tactics or easy abusable glitches really makes Raging Blast 2 pretty broken. I'd most definately say I prefer the first RB over it by far.
