Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3

Dragonball Z Budokai 3 is a fighting game which was published on Playstation 2 and then remade for Playstation 3 and Xbox. The Playsation 2 version of the game can be played on PC thanks to the PCSX2 emulator. This is the best version of Dragonball Z Budokai 3 as the emulator allows to dramatically increase the game's resolution and to play online against other players. Last but not least, shader mods can increase the graphics even further, trully transforming the old PS2 version of the game into an HD version. So if you want to get the game, it is best to buy Budokai 3 Collector Edition for Playstation 2, especially since this version of the game can be played on PC with raw cheat codes (and mods too if you feel like improving your game).
