Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection Review | PopMatters

PopMatters: "The Budokai series deserves an HD remake, but the one that it got is an incomplete experience. The decision not to include some key components makes it feel like only a partial look at the series." (Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection, PS3, Xbox 360) 4/10

You know things are bad when not only is a franchise incapable of producing a NEW game that's decent, but also incapable of producing a port of an older game that's decent.

...

...And it feels really weird to say that about someone other than Square-Enix.

Couldn't agree more. No online = fail.

Who expected them to add online play? I did, however, expect them to add Budokai 2. :/

I'm okay with the exclusion of Budokai 2, but I feel like they could have added Dragon Ball Z Infinite World to fill in the gap. I know it's not a Budokai game by name, but they could have remedied that by calling it a "Bonus HD Game!" or something similar to that.

Adding online versus matches would boosted the interest in the game due to the competitive nature of fighting games.

It just doesn't seem like they put much thought, or effort into putting this collection together. They just made the original 2 games HD and slap it on a disc. The HD is satisfying visually, but beyond that I may as well hold on to my Ps2 copies.

If you don't have these games then I recommend you get this collection, because they are excellent Dragon Ball Z games.

I think half the problem is that there's no new Dragonball content. There's only so many times you can recycle the same product.

I love Dragonball, and as much as loved the anime series i can't keep playing the same sagas over and over forever.

That's the thing I loved about dBZ. The fact that it ended. They're not milking it like Bleach or Naruto where one storyline is bloated with 80 episodes of filler.

I think the last DBZ game I bought was Tenkaichi 3 on the PS2 after having bought them all since Battle 22 on the original Playstation.

I do understand that because of DBZ Kai, they have to continue to pump them out just like they did for older DBZ fans a decade ago. The show was long over by the time the uncut dubs hit the States and despite being over, we still got Budokai years later and it was awesome.

So I think these new games and this HD collection are not for people who've been there since day 1.

I'd like a "create a saga" mode where you have control over character customization and you can make your own stories.
