The most complete entry in the DBZ series to date, Budokai 3 delivers everything that fans of the anime series
could want. An all-star cast of fighters comes together from Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, and the Dragon Ball
Movies for a total of 40+ playable characters. The new Saiyan Overdrive Fighting System delivers more complete
and authentic fighting controls, including Bukujutsu Mode (full flying combat), Dragon Rush attacks, Teleportation
Tornado Combos, counter-attacks, super high-speed combat, and much more. Earn points in Dragon Universe (Story)
and Dragon Arena modes to upgrade your fighter into the ultimate DBZ warrior. You can even post a password for
your fighter on the Internet so friends can download your customized fighters into their game!
Most people don't seem to know that creating a solid anime game isn't merely the result of throwing
together some character reference cel-shading and voice acting. There are more crap anime games than
kids ready to trash Ashlee Simpson's singing. Bucking the trend, Atari's Dragon Ball Z: Budokai series
has dedicated itself to fidelity. True, Budokai 2 muddied the waters, but Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 packs
on the features to become the sequel that should have been, not to mention the best DBZ game available.
