    It’s a sluggish, unintuitive, stumbling mess of a fighter, with only a handful of redeeming features, none of which raise it much further from the gutter of ineptitude it resides in.
  2. Those willing to experiment and take notes will still be rewarded with powerful techniques, but outsiders will not see a reason to join in. If they’re unfamiliar with Dragon Ball, the complicated controls will only serve to validate their decision to stay away from this game. For that reason, this game is for die hard Dragon Ball fans only. And maybe not even them.

    There isn't anything truly innovative brought to the table and the gameplay suffers from poor design.

    Alienates gamers to appease the fans and ends up impressing neither party. [Jan 2010, p.75]

    When the camera decides to point at nothing its problems are inexcusable. [Issue#53, p.94]

    Do yourself a favor and stick to Street Fighter IV. [Jan 2010, p.75]
  7. Still, even with the excessive fan service employed here, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast is a far cry from a good game, or even a good Dragon Ball related game.
  8. 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.

    As much as I love Dragon ball this game just did not do it for me, whilst the game in itself isn't necessarily bad, intricate fightingAs much as I love Dragon ball this game just did not do it for me, whilst the game in itself isn't necessarily bad, intricate fighting controls with some cool animation, in my opinion it lacks replay-ability I got rapidly bored was not driven by any sense of story and didn't feel like I was getting anything out of the game. I guess the reason I am being so harsh is because the last DBZ game I played was on gameboy advance (the legacy of goku) and it was astronomically better than this game. Can't someone please give us an rpg style open world next gen game in the Dragonball world. Full Review »

The system isn't the most balanced and the camera will certainly become a nuisance at times. Full Review »

    Seriously this game is not the best ever but giving it a 57 is totally stupid... Of course the camera is a little bit hard at beginning but Seriously this game is not the best ever but giving it a 57 is totally stupid... Of course the camera is a little bit hard at beginning but with time you know how it works... But there's a lot of characters, customisation, story. Seriously A good game which is a good 8 Full Review »
