    I when people don’t know the difference between a collection/compilation and a remaster/remake.

    They skipped Budokai 2 because it was a terrible game that was only worth playing for Majin Buu.

    now they should make shin budokai another road collection for psvita, or bring then to pstore along with tag team at least

    Budokai 2 wasn’t included because of its poor reviews (partly due to its lame story mode). The Budokai Tenkaichi series wasn’t included because it’s actually not even part of the Budokai series. The japanese title is Dragon Ball Z: Sparking! – they just slapped the Budokai name on in order to profit from that series – and it was made by different developers.

    you do realise that they had to remove those orginal soundtracks due to the fact that composer was doing copyright copyright infringement with them? =)

    I would have bought this if it weren’t for the music. It just doesn’t feel the same

    Copyrighted music still doesn’t excuse the fact that it was still a half-assed "collection"…would’ve been better off not even doing it in the first place

    tenkaichi sucks^^
    its allways the same stone paper, sissor, gameplay.
    just one hit button and after every 4 hit combo you and the opponent have to select a button.
    i played them all and give them away for free but the budokais are still in my collection^^

    Budokai 2 was my first DBZ game when I was 10 and that was the coolest thing for me.. no matter for those bad reviews, but it still holds a special place inside me..

    I dunno about all the music but part of the reason some didn’t come back was because some was plagiarized. Also, trophy/achievements is pretty important, or at least essential. If they weren’t there people would whine til a patch was made. With a new generation of DBZ fans and old they probably just wanted a quick buck and did work to that degree.

    You probably know this by now, but the reason why Dimps could not use the music from the original game was due to copyright infringements that were apparently made by the games original composer, Kenji Yamamoto. Such a shame too 🙁 they were really great songs.

    it wasn’t that the old music wasn’t licensed but that they used music that was in clear violation of copy write laws, one example here Dragonball Z Budokai 3 Capsule Obtain / September (Earth, Wind & Fire) Mashup

    Although I hate the new music in game, I did like the new version of the Budokai 3 opening, I unserstand they did to get any copyrights but it was good, next time they make a "Budokai HD" collection they better add the budokai series IE
    Dragon Ball Z Budokai
    Dragon Ball Z Budokai 2
    Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 (With  W Bakuretsu Impact graphics)
    Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai (With  W Bakuretsu Impact graphics)
    Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai – Another Road (With  W Bakuretsu Impact graphics)
    Dragon Ball Z Infinite World (With Dragon Ball Heroes graphics)

    Why the hell wasn’t 2 included in the collection? It’s supposed to be a "collection" isn’t it?

  23. heypachuco1991

    Since Kenji Yamamoto’s original soundtracks have been accused of plagiarism, both included games have entirely new soundtracks mixed from the soundtracks of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast, Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team, and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, plus entirely new music and the American Dragon Ball Z theme song from the original game and show.

    Did they fox the capsule shop or is it still in out in out with randomly generated selection???

    Dang I was looking forward to playing this but then I found out they also censored some violent parts in the game and screwed around with the dialogue I guess I’ll just buy all 3 games for ps2

    Even though the music kicked MAJOR ass, some of my favorite game music (especially the beginning intro, nostalgia man) they had to remove it for copyright, because apparently, the composer slightly changed songs from sort-of-mainstream bands, and namco wouldn’t let them release it again with the songs. If you want to play the original, just get a PS2 emulator, and find an ISO.

    for people that are confused that budokai 2 was not in the collection lets be honest… WHO PLAYS BUDOKAI 2? the first budokai was for the story and the 3rd one was for the fighting mechanics budokai 2 was cool at the time but 3 overshadows it by improving the mechanics so there was no point adding it in.

    Hearing the Budokai 3 intro music again made me realize what I was missing when I picked up the HD pack.
    Budokai 1 has aged pretty badly, but 3, even with a "new" soundtrack, remains my all time favorite fighter and I was so happy to discover it was on PS3.

    Budokai Tenkaichi is an entirely different series of games, dude. I’m pretty sure the others you listed are as well.

    They omitted Budokai 2 because it did not address a lot of problems with 1. They felt it was budokai 1.5 rather than a game worth a full release. I think it was wise too since in Budokai 1 and 2 you dont keep the momentum you’d think a DBZ game would have. Tenkaichi sucks dick imo. I can’t stand it. The canvas is way too wide open, its not focused in enough for me to feel like I’m having a one on one fight with someone. When they can just run off and charge up.

    The only reason the music has changed is because the composer for the DBZ games was fired for plagiarism.

    really good review. wow this game is a peice of fucking crap. how stupid are these people to take out all of the good music and only include 2 dbz games out of atleast 6? yeah thats not a collection thats a fail. the texture pack only bugs my eyes the graphical improvement is complete trash. stick to ps2 emulator people the origonal games are the best. AGAIN HD COLLECTION IS A PEICE OF FLAMING TRASH AHAHA fail!

    October 25, 2018 @ 9:34 pm

    I can get all the budokai games with all the tenkaichi games including a PS2 for a cheaper price than this collection…that is sad.
