One of the most popular anime franchises in the world, Dragon Ball Z has had numerous Dragon Ball Video games made based on it throughout the years. Many of the games vary in genre from Dragon Ball Z fighting games to Dragon Ball Z RPG adventures, the franchise is always being celebrated. Below is a list of the top 5 Dragon Ball Z games ever.
5. Dragon Ball Z: Buu’s Fury
A direct sequal to the popular Gameboy Advance game, Legacy of Goku II, Dragon Ball Z Buu’s fury improved on the game in every way from game play to graphics, everything about Buu’s Fury was solid. With music based off the American version of the anime, this game is sure to be a joy for American Fans. My biggest beef with the game is that it’s simply too short. Retelling the story of the Buu saga, the game is quite amusing and worth a play.
4. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3
BudokaiTenkaichi 3 was the final title in the solid line of BudokaiTenkaichi games. The game has one of the best rosters of characters right next to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. My biggest beef with the game is that the game isn’t balanced and characters like Yamcha and Master Roshi will always be overpowered by say a Super Saiyan 4 Goku. Other than the imbalance to the game, the game has amazing graphics, great multiplayer, and an amazing roster of Dragon Ball Z characters.
3. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Xenoverse 2 improved on the first entry in the serise drastically. Allowing players to create their own avatars in the world of Dragon Ball and saving rifts in time created by new characters created specifically for the game. Mira and Towa serve as great rivals and the way that the game incorporates classic battles from Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, and Dragon Ball Super, the game is the perfect play for a long time fan. With RPG elements and a cool leveling system, it’s very difficult to get bored with Xenoverse 2.
2. Dragon Ball Z: Legacy of Goku II
While Buu’s Fury certainly improves on Legacy of Goku II, Legacy of Goku simply tells a more beloved part of the series. Focusing on the Androids and Cell, the game sheds light on one of the series most popular sagas. Although the game is short, there is plenty of replay value and it is one of the best games released on the Gameboy Advance’s limited hardware.
1. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 is the best fighting game experience that a fan of Dragon Ball Z can get. The graphics of the game even stand up to the graphics of current game titles today. The game is played on a flat plane which limits movement of the characters but the balance in the game is amazing and makes it fun to play with friends.
