"Never before has there been a Dragon Ball Z game that is as true to the property as Dragon Ball Z: Budokai," said Paul Rinde, senior vice president of Infogrames. "The effort and attention to detail will be a huge payoff for fans as Dragon Ball Z: Budokai truly recreates the epic storyline of the Dragon Ball Z series in the interactive realm."†
Chris Sabat, the voice actor of Vegeta, Piccolo, and Yamcha stated, "To be able to actually step inside the DBZ universe, controlling your favorite character's moves, his attacks, in his voice, is a completely surreal experience. The battle/duel section of the game is worth the price of the game itself."
