With the popularity of Dragon Ball anime, there is a flood of games that retells the original story in different manners. While Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is very popular among them, previous games like SNES were far better in terms of storytelling.
Although it is a fact that Kakarot is one of the best narrative adaptations of the Dragon Ball anime, there are few games that may beat it.
So, here is the list of the top 5 Dragon Ball games that are much better than Kakarot –
#3 SNES (Super Butoden 2)
While most of the Dragon Ball games try to cover a complete series, Super Butoden 2 unwraps a piece of Cell arc. It presents the end of the Cell and the beginning of the Buu arc. The players can choose their own adventures and can enjoy the game with their favorite characters like Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, and more.
#2 The Legacy of Goku II (GBA)
The Legacy of Goku II GBA is an official Cell arc adaptation that includes the complete series within its radar. Unlike all other Dragon Ball Games, in the Legacy of Goku II, the game shoves the Saiyan Goku in the background and gives prominence to other characters.
#1 Budokai Tenkaichi 2 (PS2/Wii)
It’s true that Budokai Tenkaichi can’t compete with Dragon Ball Z: Kakkarot in terms of presentation. However, the game is much superior to Kakkarot as it delivers a fully-fledged adaptation of the Dragon Ball anime, presenting it as humanly as possible. It covers the Z series in detail and some glimpse of GT.
