Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection - Análisis

Author: José L. Ortega

Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD arrives for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and includes Dragon Ball Z Budokai and Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 games with HD graphics.

Unfortunately, with Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD we find the second example. Despite the fact that the collection includes two more than interesting titles, it seems to be too short. The compilation includes the first and third installments of the Budokai trilogy, incomprehensibly leaving the second title in the series. Perhaps the reason is that the last two installments are quite similar to each other, but that does not exempt the fact of launching a collection on the market by halves.

Because, if it is a matter of compiling franchise titles that are not similar to each other, the most coherent decision would have been to include the, for many, the best video game released lately about Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 . Although, seen from a commercial point of view, it would prevent the launch of a possible Budokai Tenkaichi HD Collection in the future.

Nor does it help that the assessment improves the fact that not a miserable novelty is included over the versions that appeared ten and eight years ago respectively. At this point, it would have been acceptable to include even an online modality for both titles to give the pack a bit of a bite. But nothing. Except for the visual remastering and the inclusion of achievements / trophies there is no content that differs from what is included in those already old and dusty records.

Conversion in high definition is not a display of resources either. And it results in something that these types of adaptations should not do: that the passage of time be noticed. Especially in the first title. In addition, and although it is a minor detail, both the menus and the scenes include some pretty shabby bands on the sides. Fortunately, when fighting, they disappear.

Parking all the negative, it should not be forgotten that we are facing two excellent titles that, despite everything, will delight the followers of Goku and company.

The series is characterized by offering fights without complicated techniques and, practically with the use of four buttons, it is possible to develop all kinds of techniques from anime, such as the mythical Kame Hame Ha.

Dragon Ball Z Budokai accuses too much the inexorable passage of time. Lean in game modes and with a combat system that is too basic, especially if we compare it with the later titles of the franchise. It narrates the events from the arrival to the land of Raditz until the death of Cell at the hands of Gohan.

For its part, Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 is a much more complete product. It includes twice as many controllable characters as the first Budokai and its possibilities in battle are much more extensive and varied. Novelties such as Dragon Rush, with which it is possible to trigger powerful combos or the possibility of countering techniques are novelties that provide what is necessary for the title to have its own seal of distinction. Argumentally, it narrates the entire anime of Dragon Ball Z , in addition to including some GT battle.
