Dragonball Z: Budokai III

Release date: 19 November 2004
Developer: Atari
Publisher: Atari


The classic anime series returns to PlayStation 2 in the third intense Budokai beat 'em up.

The Budokai series has already done a superb job of translating the classic Dragon Ball Z series into an action-packed beat 'em up - and the evolution continues in Budokai III!

Improved visuals do an amazing job of capturing the looks and animation of the stylish cartoon, and the comprehensive line up of characters means there's something here for every fan of the show.

Budokai's combat system has been beefed up with a brand new counter move, allowing you to dodge your opponent's attacks - if your timing is good enough. You'll need to balance your defensive play with considered attacks if you want to win, as your 'ki bar' is used up as you build up your character and perform special attacks.

You'll definitely want to make good use of special attacks, as spectacular assaults are possible, including ki blast struggles where powerful beams collide with spectacular results.

With multiplayer play, an in-depth story mode and a faithful, authentic approach to the Dragon Ball Z source material, Budokai III is a must for any fan of the series.
