Go to the next level in the Dragon Ball Z saga. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2, released as Dragon Ball Z 2 (ドラゴンボールZ2 Doragon Bōru Zetto Tsū) in Japan, improves upon the first installment by adding an all-new single player mode, new characters and explosive attacks. Experience the new match-ups, character cameos and challenging missions in "Dragon World." Pick your favorite DBZ hero or enemy and take on a friend in "Vs." and "Tournament" modes. If you're really good, you will soon come face-to-face with Buu, the most lethal DBZ villain.

Problems

Interlaced Output

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 forces interlaced rendering causing it's output to jitter vertically. Dolphin doesn't currently support interlaced output and attempts to convert all output to be rendered progressively. When progressive rendering can't be forced delinterlacing doesn't occur appropriately causing output to shift up a row for one frame and back on the next. Refer issue 10473.
