So the new DBZ title is well and truly out. So far ive managed all the story, unlocked the entire roster, and am currently finishing the only thing really left to do - the ranking mode.
Gameplay is frustrating at times but ultimately quite fun, they've certainly ironed out alot of the problems of the previous version. New additions such as teleporting and the different types of combo certainly break up the old style boredom that was BT1. Beam and Burst struggles seem improved, and adding Ball struggles and transformation during battle was definitely a good move.
Story mode is ok, although the disproportionate amount of made up movie fights makes those particular *sagas* quite tediuos. The cutscenes didnt really live up to much either but at least they are now there. Some parts are still sorely lacking, especially Dragonball GT which is really quite random and unaccurate. However Dragonball gets the biggest shafting, with no story mode and only a handful of personalities, and still only one villain.
The arenas arent really massively improved i must say, especially the City stage which feels exactly like its BT1 counterpart. However on the flipside Namek does feel better and now includes the awesome Dying Namek variant. New arenas are for the main pretty cool, and ingame visuals as a whole are pretty nice, with flashy beams, decent arenas and some really welcome details such as facial expressions and hair movement.
Overall could it have been better? Yes. But does this make it any worse then previous DBZ titles? No in my opinion. Personally i find it just about the best DBZ game out to date and look forward to seeing if it warrants another sequel.
So whats your guys thoughts? Enjoying the game? Struggling with finding stuff? A legitimate beef with the game? Discuss it all here
