From Review: "Ultimate Tenkaichi is easily the best looking Dragon Ball Z game I've ever seen. The characters look just like the popular anime series, complete with intense action and all of the characters you've come to know and love. On the surface it looks like it has everything going for it. There's just one problem -- Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is one of the worst fighting games to come out in the last ten years.
While I wouldn't call myself a super fan of the series, I have found a lot of enjoyment in a number of the past Dragon Ball Z games. They might not be the deepest fighting games, but they generally have enough characters and charm to make them worth taking a look at. I expected Ultimate Tenkaichi to be more of the same. Boy was I wrong. Bandai's newest fighting game is so shallow that it makes last year's Tenkaichi Tag Team look like Virtua Fighter 5. The game is so shamelessly simple that I started to wonder if I was missing something. Sadly I wasn't."
