Dragon Ball Z easily dominates the anime charts when it comes to the sheer number of high-quality titles that have been released over the years. The story of Son Goku might feel like it has been told over 9,000 times already, but it’s still endlessly entertaining and has produced some of the best games in the anime adaptation genre over the years. A new Dragon Ball Z game is never too far away, and with the bar regularly being raised for what the franchise is capable of, there have been more hits than misses over the years. Pity the same can’t be said for Krillin’s fighting record in Dragon Ball Z.
We’ve gathered a list of ten of the best Dragon Ball Z games below, each one a winner in their own right, and ranked them accordingly. From forgotten gems to esports-defining masterpieces, these are the best Dragon Ball Z games you can play right now.
10. Dragon Ball Z: Attack Of The Saiyans
Dragon Ball and the RPG genre pair up better than Yamcha and a cheap death, with Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans on the Nintendo DS being possibly the purest exploration of the JRPG genre through a Goku lens. While it’s primarily focused on just Dragon Ball Z’s original Saiyan Saga, Attack of the Saiyans is a surprisingly lengthy game with a terrific amount of content and slick turn-based RPG gameplay that requires some quick reflexes. It’s a time-sink of a game, but it’s still well worth grabbing a DS and a copy of this underrated game for a terrific afternoon of number-punching action.
