Oorah, Marine. We give each other shit, but most of us know we wouldn't be able to function without the support the other branches provide for each other.

With respect, a former Soldier. I am the Infantry, follow me!

I played 2 and I do enjoy playing it once in awhile, but it's mostly for the fanservice. And I don't mean fanservice in a bad way.

Because you're right. You are absolutely right that the Tenkaichi series did better at emulating the anime than Budokai 3 did. Huge selection of characters plus all of their signature attacks and not just everyone having super explosive wave. It was great for those "Oh I remember that!" moments.

Maybe I am speaking out of turn considering I haven't played 3, but at the sametime I have a hard time believing that even the base formula of Tenkaichi could be very compelling. The objective to emulate the anime as closely as possible in itself is a flawed idea to me. DBZ is just too fast and too crazy. To try and be so precise and have the level of engagement that a typical fighter has at that level just seems far too complicated for the technology we have right now. There's a reason they simplified the controls so much in the BT series and in XV (only mentioning it since I've been playing it.) It's a lot easier to manage at those crazy speeds.

Budokai 3 went in the other direction. It asked itself what could it do to be an engaging fighter first and then asked itself how to make it DBZ second. That's why the controls are more complicated and precise. That's why it's a bit stiffer than the anime. And that's why it rewards game knowledge over source knowledge.

To be fair, when it comes to anime fighters, you pretty much have to ask yourself what you're looking for. Are you looking for a good game that stars your favorite characters? Or are you looking for an interactive episode from your favorite anime? I prefer the former, and that's why I choose Budokai 3 as my favorite and best example of a DBZ fighting game.

play as kid gohan. super masenko everyone. spam it while they cant get close enough to you

If you do the super dash twice in a row, it dashes behind the person twice as fast as the normal dash at the expense of a bit more Ki. Your strategy is invalid.

I'd like to chime in and say that I don't like slecting a character and choosing what form they are in, because in Budokai 3, You had a character, and you could transform to power up, and certain ultimate abilities required higher forms. IT's not only the feeling of turning super sayain that I liked,(which is aweseom) you could do combos with it because when you transform, they get knocked back for a bit and you can extend some juggles with that.
