  • Summary: Interactive and destructible environments bring a new layer of intensity to the battle stages featured in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast. Smash opponents into rocks to increase their damage count and gain the upper hand in battles. Featuring the series’ trademark combat style, the game hosts a variety of the most popular characters taken from the series, all of which have enhanced features such as facial expressions for a deeper level of immersion into the Dragon Ball universe. Dragon Ball: Raging Blast boasts superior graphics that enhance the sense of the characters’ speed and power. In addition to classic signature moves, characters also benefit from a new "Super Rising" move which allows more variety in the battle stages and lets players explore new areas of the Dragon Ball universe.

    Simply put Dragon Ball Raging Blast is a game for fans of the long running anime series. Its does its job not perfectly, but well. The game does make you feel like super saiyan at times, and then turns around and makes you feel like a green blooded Namek instead.
  2. The background to the fights is told in little stories and you are fighting in real three dimensional environments, but the level of difficulty is not quite low, so that beginners will have some problems to dive into the Dragon Ball universe.
  3. A predictable but satisfying game, but it doesn't bring anything new. It is not a vain attempt because it won't disappoint those looking for a high definition Budokai Tenkaichi, but it's a lost opportunity to evolve the formula making the most of this generation power.
  4. There is nothing particularly hateful or lovable about Raging Blast, and that is its main problem. The new Dragon Ball is clearly made for fans, but it doesn’t work as a deep and engaging fighting game.
  5. While Dragon Ball: Raging Blast is somewhat lacking when it comes to interesting gameplay its wealth of content and fidelity to the manga nevertheless makes it an appealing prospect for fans of Dragon Ball.
  6. Dragon Ball: Raging Blast has a lot of things going for it including an interesting story mode, great graphics, and a huge character roster. However, the foundation of the game - the battle system - isn't very fun, and that sinks the whole experience.
  7. The online mode is there as it is with nearly every fighting game to come out in the last five years and it serves its purpose just dandy. Unfortunately, the broken gameplay immediately removes any gold starz DBZ would have eared for online functionality.

    This game gets a lot of details right. The sounds,graphics, ultimate customization, all good, i just hate the camera angles, it gets so annoying! you will see your enemy, your enemy flies down, you fly down, WHERE IS YOUR ENEMY HIDING!!! next thing you know, you've already lost a bar.... next thing you know, your controller is in your TV...... i give it a 8.1(rounded to 8) Expand

    i don't see why people hate it so much, it's a great fighting game with good graphics, a cool story mode and catchy music. although, it does have a faulty camera angle and not enough characters, but as a whole, it's a good dragon ball experience. Expand

    Que dejen de vendernos tanta mierda, joder, con los buenos juegos que eran los Tenkaichi o los Budokai, y nos venden esta basura, da vergüenza que este sea un juego de Dragón Ball, no merece llevar ese nombre, lo ensucia, gráficamente es penoso, la jugabilidad es simplemente repugnante, no te engancha en absoluto, hay partes del juego que durante la partida la cámara te saca de los nervios, escenarios sin vida, personajes muertos facial mente, en definitiva, un juego penoso.
