Included in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection are Dragon Ball Z Budokai and Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3. Both these games are up there on the list of the very best DBZ video games to ever release. When they had both released initially, they did extremely well. They had accomplished great ratings from both fans and critics alike. Now they are back on a newer generation of consoles and are better than ever before. Receiving that all important HD remaster was a master stroke well recognised by all.
The visuals look amazing, especially compared to the original releases of the game; the remastering was extremely well done. Often you would get lazy HD remastering of games where they will only focus on the main parts. Not with this game however, as they have remastered this game from head to toe with pleasing results. A couple of classic PS2 games given new life and it now feels like a next-generation game.
The characters and environments are more detailed and less jagged looking with Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection. The cut scenes have improved too and run a lot smoother. When people think ‘HD remaster’ they only think of upgrades to the graphics but almost never the sounds. Both the sound effects and the in-game sound tracks when fighting or just scrolling through the menus have upgraded.
