This game really takes what you expect from the DBZ universe and puts it in a game. The fighting sequences are incredible and the action is simple enough to get in on the action but advanced controls are so compelling you can really separate the men from the boys. The game is lacking GT and regular Dragonball characters but the game is still fun from the get-go.
Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 has a complex game structure that features a poor control scheme and a clumsycombat system. Despite being based on one of the most succesful anime over the world the game do not present an involving story (like Ultimate Ninja Storm) and is recommended only to the strongest fan of Akira Toriyama's work.
The Dragon Ball series has been trying to peddle long range, multi-tiered combat for quite some time now and it never seems to pull it off. The controls and combos in Raging Blast 2 can be fiddly at the best of times and fights can become decidedly one-sided which is annoying, even when it's in your favour.
Raging Blast 2 is one big déjà vu that adds virtually nothing to the first game. Not even the biggest Dragon Ball enthusiast will be impressed with this, even though this is still a decent fighting game.
It's obvious this $60 piece of fanservice was meant to sway old and new DBZ junkies into a purchase, but as the entire game feels more like an expansion pack or a cheap cash-in attempt, there's nothing here to recommend over importing some of the more polished 2-D sprite fighters or at the very least checking out Budokai on the PlayStation 2.
Dragonball raging blast 2 is a fighting game based on the dragonball anime series. Many peoples' main knock against this game is it's "shallow fighting system". I totally and blatantly disagree. It is such a deep fighting game that I feel that its' steep learning curve makes it appear shallow. You have so many options in this game. Ya, sure it may not be the kind of deep traditional fighters are in a way where you have to memorize strings and strings of buttons in order to pull off the best combos, but this doesn't necessarily mean it isn't deep. If one goes throught the tutorials one will learn that the fighting mechanics are in deed very very deep if you take the time to learn them and realize this isn't a traditional fighter. There are so many subtleties and options you have in fight , that I am really bothered by the fact that this game's fighting system is considered shallow especially when you take into consideration the range of movement you have compared to a traditional fighter like tekken or street fighter. It's just as deep, ujust in a different way. In order to make a fighter that shows off what a dbz character can do, certain elements are a necessity. The online is great, there are good game modes, and most importantly, the customization of characters' moves before a fight is great. Two ss1 gokus can fight each other and be totally different. The onle real negative I have to say is the story mode is kind of weak in that there are no cut scenes or anything, but they do offer quite a bit of variety in the types of fights you must do. Underrated game that I know will continue to be underrated. All in all, if you give it a chance, I fully believe you will be happy you took the time to try it out. I haven't met one person who played the game and didn't like it.
Um dos meus jogos favoritos de DBZ, me entreteu muito e gostei da customização de itens e técnicas. Finalizei o Galaxy Mode, mas parei no meio das battles zones. Recomendo muito pra quem gosta de Dragon Ball e com paciência. O gráfico é ótimo e tem uma grande lista de personagens usáveis.
Ok, so this gmae gets a lot of hate while the budokai tenkaichi series get praised to high heaven. I havn't played any of the BT games but I know for a fact that Raging blast 2 does not deserve all the hate. The game has a good vareity of characters to pick from and all of them play a little differently, with unqiue signiture moves and supers. The lack of story mode doesn't really bother me because it'll basically be the same story we've had in every other DBZ game.
Over all, the game is good and meant to be played in small doses. The fighting system is good, the characters look good and the gameplay modes are good. Nothing is spectacular but the game is still fun to play.
The latest Dragonball Z game has been subject to some harsh criticism, most of which I would say is a bit exaggerated. The game does suffer from a lack of modes seen in previous titles, notably the story progression from the series in the form of "sagas". The player has the choice of Battle Zone which feels a little like an Arcade mode, and Galaxy Mode which is a string of fights for each character. There isn't a lot of variety which is a shame. However that aside I would say this a very good package for any fan of Dragonball Z. The combat is fast, and the cut-scenes are framed in an exciting manner that make the player feel like they are in the cartoon. There are tonnes of characters to unlock and you can get great replayability with or without friends in creating dream match ups, or recreating fights from the series. For fans of Dragonball Z who are looking for some fun I would highly recommend this game, but it's probably going to be hit and miss for most other people.
This game has the most value if you were a big fan of the anime at any point in your life. The battles retain the intensity and over-the-top nature of the battles from the show without the 3 episodes of filler in which the dueling fighters take turns swapping threatening monologues. The mechanics are not perfect, but the fighting and destruction effects are true to the show aka you can warp behind an opponent's limp body and slam him into a mountain or building and then obliterate him with an energy blast. The controls are simple, the fighting is fast paced, and if you can get past the fact that the game is not as tightly balanced as Tekken or Street Fighter then you will definitely find something to enjoy.
SummaryDragon Ball Z fans can rest assured that the destructible environment, and character trademark attacks and transformations will be true to the series. These include signature Pursuit Attacks which enable players to initiate attack combo strings, juggling your opponent in a string of devastating strikes throughout the environment. Additio...
