whats so special about it? was it the inclusion of pretty much every character in dbz universe at the time?

    The series was pretty unique when it first came out and Tenkaichi 3 is basically the most refined version of the game. Every DBZ tenkaichi-like after that was worse to varying degrees. Hyped for Sparking Zero though.

    Also, pic rel are Legacy of Goku II are actually the go to games for most DBZ fans in my experience.

    They’re all basically the same thing but 3 has the most characters.

      BT3 also adds fun "what if" stuff to the story, and makes each character more unique/reduces the number of clone movesets.

      BT3 is great, but I prefer BT2 for the massive amount of single player content it has.
      They tried their best to weave evert piece of Dragon Ball content into one single flowing story. Things didn't always line up right, but the effort was appreciated.
      It even went above and beyond and had some good "What If" stories too, my favorite one involving Raditz getting amnesia, befriending the Z Fighters, and struggling with which identity he wants to keep when he gets his memories back.

      The BT games are less fighting games and more of a virtual Dragon Ball toybox. BT 3 has the most toys. Simple as.

      I only like BT3 because it has every single character ever. The actual gameplay of the Tenkaichi games wasn't actually good but it was just entertaining back in the day to pit Yamcha up against Super Saiyan Broly and see what happens.

      I still standby that Budokai 1 is the only genuinely good Dragon Ball Z game ever made and I will die on that hill. Good story mode that just recreates the anime with in engine cutscenes and simple but fun tekken style fighting game combat. Thats literally all I have wanted this franchise to be but they frick it up every single god damn time by making the story mode lame as hell or over complicating/dumbing down the combat way too hard.

      Always seemed obvious to me it was the massive roster and just stuff. Each game built on the last.

      At the end of the day these games were just fanservice, and they excelled at that, as does most Dragonball fighting games, more characters means more specific match ups and what ifs you can create just by yourself.
      I still like playing this game and doing what if matches, it's icing on the cake when the characters have unique dialogue.
      Not to mention the costumes, the costumes go insane in this game, pretty much anything you could want, and pair that with characters that had different eras (Early, mid [for goku and vegeta at least], and late), characters from movies and specials (future gohan is the cool asf) and even characters from OG Dragonball and it creates a massive toybox of characters. A dragonball fans wet dream.

        I loved the custom dialog you'd get fighting certain people. Always thought that was great. The games are great and I need to get a copy that has all the content unlocked without needing to do the disc switch. Havent played these games in years.

      I also prefer 2 a little bit, both for the better single player and the soundtrack. 3's OST is a bit generic in comparison. But 3 is better balanced and feels a little better put together. For example BT2 shows Wii buttons when you're using the GC controller, and the level clear/fail jingle overlaps the clear screen music. So I understand why people prefer 3, especially since it has even more characters.

    Remember getting this on launch, along with 2.
    2 was a huge improvement but 3 felt more like side-grade to 2 or expansion. Disc fusion gimmick was also interesting. Good thing we have it with hacks by default on emulators.

    My favorite one was train your fighter thing where you had to train for 10 days before each fight.

      I somewhat agree on Budokai 1, it's just a shame most moves and characters are so limited, best case would be 1's story presentation and missions, and 3's character roster and moves

    I think they just struck the perfect balance with BT3. I don't know if you've played the first two, but BT1 had very limited movesets, and BT2 had this weird system where every giant character had hyper armor, no matter the power disparity. So Oozaru Gohan (kid) could tank punches from Gogeta because frick you. Also, Gohan SSJ2 completely dominated BT2, because one of his Blast 2 attacks was better than many ultimates. Do you know those attacks that scatter a ton of ki shots in a second? Well, in BT2 they all home into your opponent, so they were overpowered. In BT3 all the ki shots only hit if the opponent is very near you.

    Also, Story Modes. BT3's story mode was very good, and had voiced sequences during battles. BT2's story mode was just a sequence of battles.

      Avout the hyper armor, in BT3 they've rebalanced it to account for power disparity. So Broly could fight and even overpower a lesser Oozaru/Lord Slug, but fight on equal terms against Golden Oozaru (Baby). Some characters also had a power-up Blast 1 that removed those restrictions for some time, so even Mr.Satan could score hits on Super Boo.

    It is just playing with toys plus hispanics and brazillians love it because it is easy to run and can be very easily modded which has givin it a second life.. My mexican friend actually spoke with a pretty popular modder from Argentina and he does 100% of all of his model editing, animations, and coding from a cellphone.

    Just an autistic observation: I’ve always hated Vegeta’s buu saga look. Idk why. The modded Saiyan armor from the android/cell saga was his best look. But most of the games use his buu look.

      I feel like most depictions use his improved saiyan armor to be real. But also it's like symbolic. Like he's shedding his saiyan nature.
      Just means he's so badass he doesn't need armor anymore.
