    this game is awesome!

    the 3rd installment of the Budokai series, this one's really fun. you get Goku, Vegeta, and a ton of great characters. i've played the multi-player before but i haven't played the 1-player enough to know the story, but if you have kids who are Dragonball z fans and you want to rent them a multi-player game that will keep them entertained for hours, get em' this. it's worth every cent you hand over to get it for a week, or if you are greedy, you can simply buy it.

    This game in my opinion, is worth the work the game makers put into it. and if it's Dragonball z, take it off the shelf in the video store before it's gone. also, 2 words of advice; if you have no idea what dragonball Z is, watch dragonball on YTV first. and don't just rent this game because i said it was cool. it's rated T because a big muscular guy beating up female androids isn't what you want your kids to see.

    But for the older crowd, 10/10! and KameHameHAAAAA!

    this game is the best Budokai Game ever and it's way better than the first 2 budokai games

    For DBZ fans and Fighting Game Fans want it was a DBZ Video Game Masterpiece Right next to Tenkaichi 2 and Tenkaichi 3 and Legacy of Goku 2

    the graphics are awesome

    the game modes are fun

    the musics are great

    and one of the best parts about that game in the main story mode/Drgaon Universe you can fly around the Dragon ball world

    in dragon universe mode and dragon arena mode you can level up your favorite characters and get stronger

    great bonus features like voice player and the intro of budokai 2

    but the bad part of budokai 3 is the endless dragon rush and hyper mode

    this game is everything a DBZ fan could ask for

    This has got to be the koolest game ever!!! EVER!!!!!!! I loved the other 2 ones b4 this one but this one totally blew them away. It is so much more like actually fighting than in the other 2. When i first got this game when it came out I played it every chance i got. I got so pale every1 thought i went goth because i stayed in soo long. Even though i've gotten every1 in the game including cell jrs and saibamen, and I've gotten 98% of all the capsules i still play dragon arena sometimes and practice against the computer set on very hard. There is no one in the state of PA that can beat me at this game i am unstoppable. And also this game KIKS!!!!!!!!

    of the 3 budokai games, this one has definitely perfected it's fighting system. they've taken the combo system of the 1st, the beam wars of the 2nd (though i never saw it happen in the 2nd one) and now adds more with it's lightening fast teleport system. it's one player mode has also dramatically improved, especially over the 2nd one. you actually fly around the planet looking for your enemy to fight. what i do miss with this game was "interesting fight transitions" the first one had fully animated cut scenes voiced by the English actors and progressed just like the show did. the second one broke that concept with dialog between two cut out posters that had moving lips. and now the 3rd one has cut out entirely the moving lips at all, leaving us with little standy's that resemble comic book store displays. all in all, worth buying over the other 2, for most characters, best fighting engine, and enhanced 1 player. i only wish they reintroduce actual cut scenes so that not only fans of the show will know what the heck is going on. and i don't mean rip scenes from the show and have the narrator speak over it to sum up a whole 10 episodes in 1 minute. (thats right i'm looking at you dbz: sagas)
