hose who enjoy DBZ have already decided that they will buy Budokai 3 and that it will be their favorite game of all time. If you fall into that category, congratulations – this game will reward your loyalty and faith. It has a boatload of unlockables, character customization, and some unique maneuvers that give it the series’ trademark world-crushing flair. However, don’t be upset if the rest of the world doesn’t share your enthusiasm for this puerile wasteland; it’s simplistic, clumsy, unresponsive, and boring, even with the improvements over last year’s entry. I’ve never seen a title that puts so much effort into pleasing franchise fans at the expense of being playable and enjoyable. It’s more of an interactive fan-gasm than a "game" in the traditional sense.
