10 Best Dragon Ball Z Fighting Games


The Top Ten

1 Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3

Over 32.4? , haha I'm not suprised, I bought this game last week, with Budokia 3 also,, and I havn't been playing Budokai 3 lately because I've been playing this one instead more often, it has ALL the characters, and MOST of them are already unlocked, pure AWESOME - SmoothCriminal

This is awesome and the best dbz game ever. Ps3 dbz games need to take pointers from this game. You know what they should make a dbz bt3 remake in hd or all 3 tenkaichi games 1,2, and 3. Yea that would be awesome. What do you guys think, people should vote on it.

Bt3 is the best game for dbz ever after it dbz Raging Blast2 it just need more characters like bt3 I have ultimate tenkaichi and burst limet on ps3 I didn't found raging blast 1 or 2 in ultimate tenkaichi the boss battles is hard but I've completed it, it sucks even hero mode sucks and the characters is less I can't believe there is no ssj2 vegeta, the next dbz game should have:more than 150 characters like bt3, better hero mode, good graphics, good story mode, tag team fights, and better online until now dbz bt3 is the best game.

Open scale game, the fact that you could cause mass destruction is a plus. Effects are more dramatic than xenoverse series another plus. Split screen battles another plus, this game has almost all the characters from the franchise

2 Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3

Out of all the Dragon Ball Z games I've ever owned, I have the best memories from this game. I remember playing some really intense battles with friends. You could perform all kinds of attack combinations with punches and kicks. That's something you couldn't do in the Tenkaichi games. I don't know why people liked Tenkaichi 3 so much. Sure it had a lot of characters, but the combat controls were shallow (one button does all). The voice acting was terrible in the Tenkaichi games. Budokai 3 really got your blood flowing when you pulled off an ultimate attack, and the cutscenes were marvelous. They had the right music in the game, enough characters, customizeable moves with capsules, and Dragon Arena. The only thing I didn't like was transformations took up too many slots. They fixed that in Infinite World, but iw got rid of Goku's Warp Kamehameha. They also got rid of Vegeta's Final Flash. Vegito got Final Kamehameha which was cool, but still, taking away two of the best ultimate moves ...more

One of the best fighters of all time. The only Dragon ball Z fighting game that can stand among MK, Street fighter, and Killer instict as the best fighters to be programed. The graphics, music, story, voice acting, controls, mechanics are all perfect. And a badass character roster to boot. This simply redefines how to make a dragon ball Z game. Don't even try to prove me wrong

Best game for ps2, budokai tenkaichi is just like a copy of all the characters and I think if there was no copy it would have like 50 characters to

3 Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2

Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is a great game for the DBZ fan and an incredible adventure for the dedicated console fighter. The core of the game welcomes the average player with an easy to learn fighting engine, at the same time possessing more hidden layers of technical and mechanical depth than any other DBZ game for the hardcore gamer. While most fighting games present the challenge factor through specific difficulty levels, Tenkaichi 2 allows the player to challenge him/herself based on their own dedication. The more dedication exhibited by the player, the more a challenge the game will present.

First DBZ game I played and still my favorite. It made me want to play other DBZ game. So I went out and bought like all of them but this one is still my favorite. It's the little things I like about this game the music, the super attacks, leveling up system for the fighters, almost all the movies characters, and I love being able to fly around the map like I was a Z Fighter. Also still the best effort in the story mode in one of these game "in my opinion". This game will make you feel like your in the show or the Manga.

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 is my second favorite but it was not as good to me but the roster is better, I must admit.

People now a days care more about the characters however I think tenkaichi 2 is the best game because of its story mode and the fact that you can fly around cities, (something that was not included in bt3) also people complain about rb2 where as if it had more characters than tenkaichi 3 it would be the better game (characters only do not make a game good)
Things that make a game good is, gameplay and storyline

Focused more on movement and pulling off fast combos as oppose to varied hit-and-run attacks that 2D fighters use. Keeps the pace fast and can go all over the board.

4 Dragon Ball: Xenoverse

I just finished the game. To start off, the game was kinda stupid in the beginning, but once you keep moving forward, it gets a lot better and you start to enjoy. a lot of people will love it but a few people will dislike it. Character creation, parallel quest, and online content. So far, I enjoy it. I can't wait to get the dlc

This one changed the game.. The story line was better, the gameplay is dope. Been a while since we had a great DBZ... Omega Shenron must have been summoned

I love this game, It's my favorite. While it may seam, Weird... Its awesome. My only complaint is: 'Why does it take SO long to get the Dragon Balls? ' I get that It's a challenging game, But this is ridiculous.

I have dragon ball z games

5 Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2

I have to agree with you dude, rb 2 is the best dbz game. I have to say not very fond of graphics but love the attacks. Galaxy mode is also great

It's so awesome I would love this game so much I would play it almost every day and love the raging blast mode and characters and last but not least and most favorite goku spirit bomb upgrade called "large spirit bomb by using a item called "bit of spirit" it's powerful and the most powerful one by using the "every ones spirit" on goku and the most powerful spirit bomb called "SUPER SPIRIT BOMB" I love the game guys,and add more updates to make it the best DBZ game. Love you guys.

This is a great game buy it it's so good trust me.

I personally think it had the best figting system in any of the DB games and I think it had the best way to transform by far

7 Dragon Ball: Raging Blast Dragon Ball: Raging Blast

It was mega cool

First dbz game I ever owned. It's really great for beginners, as well as the intensity in each battle, I beat the whole game in 4 hours. Characters and all.


This one is kind of interesting, second one sucks

8 Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World

Took the Budokai 3 style and revamped it for fighting gamers to create hours upon hours of intense matches. It's only real flaw? No beam-struggles.

This is a best game

Infinite enemy infinite fun

So underrated

9 Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z

HORRIBLE! PURE TRASH! WASTE OF 60 DOLLARS! I recommend you borrow it or wait till the price drops to get it..

I can understand the annoyances people have with the console version, but most of those complaints are absent when you play on the PlayStation Vita. Get it on the Vita for a lower price, plus you can play it on the go with the vita. The combat is limited but still great with a great sense of RPG elements. The best graphics in a Dragon Ball game yet.

After you complete the story, the game is exciting. You can play as whoever you want and launch a devastating limit break Kamehameha.

I like the dragon ball z games and cartoons

10 Dragonball Z: Burst Limit Dragonball Z: Burst Limit

Fast and fluid combat awesome music and GREAT Graphics that look great even by today,

But the BIG problem with this game is that it is SEVERELY Lacking content and replay value (For example: no Buu Saga is a main gripe from people). No Trophies on the PS3 version (even though the 360 version has achievements) pretty much no one plays online in this game anymore by 2015, Only 21 characters plus a handful of stages etc... The story mode on the other hand is REALLY bad in my opinion (Budokai 1 still has the best story mode hands down). Burst Limit's Story mode is just SO LAZY because they keep reusing the same animations OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER again and it gets very annoying to the point where it's ridiculous. I didn't really like the Drama pieces either because they just disturb the flow of the battle. But this game is VERY FUN with friends so I recommend it!

This game is actually really good and the graphics but the only problem is that there aren't that many stages or characters

My favorite, too bad it is lacking content.

This have the best moment to moment gameplay of any Dragon Ball Z game, is the ultimate refinement of the Budokai formula, with improved graphics and mechanics. It�'s my favorite DBZ game, but I can understand it being lower than Budokai 3, as that game have more characters and a longer story mode, but this is definitely top 5.

The Contenders

11 Dragon Ball Z Budokai 2 Dragon Ball Z Budokai 2

My first ever dbz game and there were so many exclusives like super buu freiza, vegeta, tien absorbed. Also the gameplay was kind of like a board game which had its limitations. Otherwise, it is the only game that stuck to the original dbz story with no movie characters or filler arcs.

The story style is the best ever.

I like but budokai tenkaichi 2 is better

This one is one of my favorites. Up there with rb2 and tb3. The old mk and sf style matches, the arena animatics, the attacthments you can add to make your character stronger and even the odds. I'm also pretty sure that no other games have super namek as a transformation, or gohan avid krillins hidden power as one either and much more. Super buu has transformations absorbing cell and Frieza, there is Goku and hercule fusion, Yamaha and tien. This Game had a lot to offer for its time. How you fuse items to unlock things was amusing too.

12 Dragonball Z Sagas Dragonball Z Sagas

DBZ Sagas is awesome. It is a low-class sandbox adventure game that allows you to play as Goku and a few of his friends and Broly through the saiyan to the cell saga. Although the characters overall are the same, it is fun to venture around the DBZ world.

What the hell? This piece of ass made it here? Sonic 06 was better than this low budget

This freezes has a whole bunch of glitches and it boring to many invisible walls

This the first dbz game'beat em'up (I ever know) Fun and, enjoyable, but the attack of character look so weak make me A little boring to finished pieces staged, just like cat and mouse only'hit and run not more at all

14 Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi

As far as multiplayer goes, the Tenkaichi series has suffered from two major problems: the repetitiveness of super moves (particularly rush attacks) and the unbalancing of characters. In BT2 and 3, you were always at a disadvantage unless you picked one of the Saiyans or one of the final supervillains (Omega Shenron, Baby et al. ), even with upgrades. The first Tenkaichi, however, didn't suffer nearly as much from this problem as the later games; rather than copy-pasting moves across dozens of boring secondary characters, this game focused on balancing fewer opponents. The result was a game that did not stay true to the series, but was a better fighting game overall.

I like dudokai tenkaichi cause of its character selection and the story modes persicety to the original show series

15 Super Dragonball Z Super Dragonball Z

It was done by the original crew that did Super Street Fighter 2. Expect the same types of controls, and that makes it the best DBZ fighting game ever.

It's fun but the controls bloody suck

It's a well designed fighting game.

This game sucks

17 Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team

Love this game better than any of it

I loves this game but needs to gain more characters

I loved this game! I spent hours and hours playing when I was younger. This game definitely needs more appraisal and hopefully it truly gets the sequel it deserves.

The best dbz game for psp. It has TAG TEAM! So instead of doing a fighting Nappa and then vegeta spawns, it is fighting Nappa and Vegeta at the same time. Also, the potara and fusion is unique along with the transformations. 8/10.

18 Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2

The fast paced action of this game online pays a lot of respect to the anime. Fighting controls are fairly simple yet breaking a players stamina and going for 50+ hit combos becomes a very rewarding challenge and the rpg elements of this game are deceptively deep with many favorite races to choose from. It is hands down the best dragon ball game on the next-gen market!

It's not even released and it's already the best dragon ball game

Not released yet, but probably will be on top of the list once it does.

Awesome and EPIC!

19 Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai Another Road Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai Another Road

This game really should be higher on the list like about in the top 6 or 7. The reasons why is because this is the first DBZ game the doesn't go on the same story line. It mixes it up a little, it dives into a what-if saga about arguably the best saga in the story. The only thing I didn't like about it is how they went about the story, in story mode the charterers you fight are the same ones if not clones. The point is if they had done a better job on the story line this would be a better game.

This is good it just need more characters from the dragon ball z kai series event

This is a good game overall for people who enjoy the Budokai series and Burstlimit. It is based of the movie of History of Trunks and is a what if story to the movie. It has a decent character roster and an exclusive SSJ4 Goku in it as well. Although Tournament was replaced with arcade. Arcade is a different turn on tournament. I recommend this for Budokai lovers and Burstlimit lovers, infinite world especially.
