  1. A must-own for Dragon Ball fans.
  2. The story is pretty linear, but if you have a buddy with the game, you can play special co-op missions using the game's Tower mode.
  3. Dragon Ball: Origins 2 doesn't reinvent the wheel, but as far as by-the-book sequels are concerned, this is one of the best.
  4. If you are looking for Zelda in a Dragonball style and like challenges, you should look definitely for Dragon Ball: Origins 2.
  5. 75
    Dragon Ball: Origins 2 is unabashedly for fans of the series. It's not a game for people who like the big, over-the-top battles of Dragon Ball Z, or people who are looking to learn more about the story.

    DBO2 knows that audience that buys Dragon Ball games and simultaneously gives those players something a little different and all-too familiar. The problems with how characters are modeled during the cut scenes are minor in the grand scheme of things, while the gameplay is the real star of the show.
  7. Dragon Ball Origins 2 its a nice follow-up to the 2008 original game. It has a better storyline and the same gameplay style, but unfortunately, Game Republic doesn't fix the controls and there are some problems related with the framerate.
  8. Nintendo Power
    Dragon Ball fans with something to prove, though, should find themselves right at home. [July 2010, p.85]
  9. 78
    The game has changed to make simpler the character control and its progression, but gameplay is still too complicated for casual players in boss encounters, so the game falls midway.
