I bought this game for a fraction of the price thanks to thehut.com. I really felt it is the most true-to anime Dragon Ball Z game indeed! But I also believe that it is to much of a good thing... I feel that what the game really lacks is any technique as all fights are won through a kind of random guessing game. Also i feel a bit annoyed about having to read a lot of jargon before each level is a complete waste of time, they could have shown us some actual clips from Dragon Ball Z! Overall It is awesome, but i feel it is perhaps too awesome...
I think this is the best Dragon Ball game ever up to this moment.
This game is very good and has amazing graphics.
Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi was fun and entertaining but it took a while to figure out the controls. Other than that a great game, especially for multi-player battles!
I've tried almost all the games of Dragonball and I've to admit it! the Tenkaichi saga it's the one that I love in particular! the gameplay is really fluid and the are a ton of characters to play with! A must have!
Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi is a great game full of new stuff. I recommend it if you are a fan of Dragon Ball Z.
The game is crap. You could finish the whole game with literally one button, which isn't really fun and requires no skill at all. You don't get the freedom of doing exactly what you want to do, as you can only do the special attack at a certain point which is really disappointing, unlike in Dragon Ball Raging Blast 2. The fighting engine is poor, and the actions just repeat quite a lot in every fight, making it feel like you're just doing the same thing over and over again, making it really boring. The only good about the game is the graphics, a nice change yet this isn't enough to make me want to play that game ever again. I played for an hour and decided to sell it back to a nearby gaming shop. Even though I'm a big Dragon Ball fan this is nothing like expected, so trust me: if you buy this you're going to be really disappointed.
The game it self based on the anime,but it has an individual mode which can be pretty fun. This Hero mode which grants you the power to choose and develope your own personal DBZ character and explore the world with it The gameplay is pretty much intense and fast,based on the long combos the player can create with the rights combination. THe fight are like small cut scenes,but still behold the fighting experience.Multiplayer part (1 vs. 1) is bit different than the normal fight like in Tekken6.The screen is split in the middle vertically so the 3d movement can be explored without any issues. There are 2 different type of attack in the game,one is the so called "Blast Range" which allows you to use the characters long range attacks like "Kamehameha".The other is the "Melee Range" attack which is all about close combat and fist fights. There is also the Story mode which allows you to play the DBZ story fully.Each end of a huge fight (which can take up to 5 characters to go trough) there is a small (but pretty high quality) scene from the original anime. Its a blast to play it trough if you are a true DBZ fan like me. There is only one "bad" side of this game,the speed which you have to get used too if you want to keep it up with the enemy. You have to act really fast in certain situation,which can become a real issue. But all in all its a great game and its definitelly worth it to buy.
This DBZ game, in my opinion, is one of the worst made for PS3 right behind Burst Limit, possibly because its style diverges quite a lot from the previous episodes. The Tenkaichi 2 and 3 format for PS2 is the most adequate transferred into Raging Blast 1 and 2. This episode sure has a big advantage in terms of graphics with HD and an amazing cell shading but that alone is not enough to make it a must buy. The game-play is way too simplified, often just giving the player the choice between two buttons to press giving it the 50/50 type of thing which is in no way a good one. Your attacks will land depending on whether or not you press the opposite button the opponent pressed. The close range/long range system does not give much freedom to the player to move around in the vast arenas, it definitely does not explore all its capacities to the fullest. The melee combos are automatic, there isn't a real control over it (either press SQUARE or TRIANGLE to do one melee combo or the other). Of course, it changes a bit from the regular game-play, and is suitable for younger players. The character roster is not too big compared to the previous episode (Raging Blast 2), which is a very negative point. Most definitely NOT a must buy, although I am a big fan of DBZ and have purchased all games I do regret buying this one (only bonus being having it added to my collection).
An awesome Dragon Ball Z game with quality graphics. I like the new "Impact Break" feature that makes the game so real.
Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi is so good that i bought it for my son's birthday asnd ahven't seen much of him since....best one yet he says!!!!!
The massively popular Dragon Ball anime series once again gets a console outing, showing that no matter how many times you retell the same story; there is always someone who wants to play it again and again. Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi is a mash up of both the Dragon Ball Z and Dragonball GT stories, to many fans that will make sense, to others it will mean nothing and even when playing the game it is still not clear just what is going on. The basic jist is that a young boy from another planet called Goku crash lands on Earth and is adopted by an old man who then teaches him the way of the warrior. After years of training Goku comes across a strange being who is aware of Goku’s past and warns that an invasion will begin in one year. True to his word, other Saiyans appear and start causing havoc all around the globe. Personally the Z and GT elements don’t really mean much other than lots and lots of fights against a weird and zany group of aliens and warriors. Dragon Ball Z is mainly a 1 vs. 1 beat-em-up and you control one of many characters and fight over a variety of environments. The controls are very simple, allowing easy to pull off combos with just one button, with a light attack used for combos, a heavy attack for those one off powerful punches, a block and a rush move. The battlefield is completely 3D, allowing for you to move freely all around the arena, getting behind your adversary to get a few easy hits in there. Action is split into two main areas, ranged and close. The controls are identical for both, with ranged throwing fast bolts of Ki and close allowing for fists and feet. Combos come very easily, with three landed attacks allowing you to start a massive chain of combos, with you linking them with either a press of the light or heavy attacks and a direction to send their pummelled bodies flying. The action is intense and very fast, with explosions and flashing going off all over the place with it feeling like a firework has just been thrown through your letterbox, it’s that noisy. Special attacks also come in a couple of varieties, first charging your Ki by holding down on the d-pad and then just flicking the right stick to perform a move, to a more powerful finishing move which can only be unleashed when the enemy is at a certain health level. The resulting damage around you is quite impressive at first, with enemies being thrown into the ground, creating craters and special moves ripping the ground apart, sadly only to be replaced by green grass seconds later, the worst case scenario is when a special power with an explosion so powerful it can be seen from space gives your character a few nicks and scrapes on their face. Even though there are plenty of environments to fight through they are very bland, with lots of things around you but you can’t destroy them unlike in other DBZ games. They do look good though and this is even more so with the characters, with the cell-shading effects making the game more like an interactive cartoon than ever before.
I have been playing DBZ games for a long time (since the ps1). I must say this is by far the most abstract version of any dbz game i have played, but not in a bad way. Ideally if you are a hardcore fighting game enthusiast, this is not the game for you as you will soon become tired of the repetitive and linear fighting mechanics. On the other hand, if you are an avid DBZ fan, then in my opinion it is something you should pick, just for the shear fact that it is a different approach. Pros: The graphics in this game are amazing, and they are accompanied by some brilliant cut-scenes which bring the whole dbz experience to life. The story mode is very similar to that of budokai 3, in the sense that you fly an open map, and can go to areas of interest whilst still carrying on the main story line. Although the side tasks are fairly the same, they enable you to win dragonballs and other skills. Hero mode - This mode is similar to story except you create your own character which you build up. The more you progress the more skills you unlock. This is a good addition as it increases the replay value of the game, and also immerses hardcore dbz fans in to the heart of battle. Cons: The biggest draw back to this game will have to be the fighting mechanics. As mentioned earlier it is very linear, and the different characters are in essence just different skins, as each character operates and feels the same. The gameplay is full of quick time events, where you and your opponent have a 50 - 50 chance of winning. In a sense this will stop the spamming of moves like we saw on BT3. But for the hardcore gamers it will become tiresome VERY quickly. All in all this game is aimed at dbz fans, and i really doubt it would appeal to anyone else. The graphics and hero mode are the real selling points of the game, whilst the actual gameplay may let it down. If you are willing to look past the one dimensional gameplay, it is something every dbz fan will enjoy.
