Ultimate Dragon Ball Z For Dummies is a good one. Or how about Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Rock, Paper, Scissors Showdown? Yeah, I like that one better!
Ultimate Tenkaichi is the latest in a long and typically solid line of Dragon Ball Z anime fighting games from Namco Bandai. I hesitate to even classify Ultimate Tenkaichi as a fighting game though, because it doesn’t deserve to be in the same genre as games like Street Fighter, Tekken, and Virtua Fighter — or even previous Dragon Ball Z games for that matter."
