    Caught out by an unexpected temporal phenomenon, seven ordinary citizens find themselves stranded in a Temporal Seam; they share their imprisonment with a Raider, a menacing enemy from another timeline with overwhelming power.

    Their only hope for survival is to break out of the Temporal Seam with the Super Time Machine but the Raider is on their backs and getting stronger minute-by-minute.

    DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS is a 1-on-7 online asymmetrical action game in which a band of seven everyday humans tries to survive the Raider (a classic DRAGON BALL rival such as Cell and Frieza) who will hunt and evolve into an unstoppable force.

  1. Although Dragon Ball: The Breakers is actually a good idea, it is an experience that I can only recommend to anime fans due to its flaws in the implementation part, the gacha system and the luck-based gameplay that gets boring after a while with bad teammates.

    Despite iffy monetization choices and the general feeling that the game might not last long enough to become a permanent part of your rotation, Dragon Ball: The Breakers is a frantic and fast-paced interpretation of a genre otherwise saturated in horror movie tropes. Steeped in fun Dragon Ball in-jokes and goofy humor, there’s there’s a lot of slapstick joy to be found in the game, so much so that it wouldn’t be out of place if the Benny Hill theme kicked in every so often.

    DRAGON BALL: The Breakers is a good idea held back by Pay-to-Win practices and outdated design decisions. While the game could have a bright future ahead of it, it has a long way to go before it can be considered a truly great title, and really ought to sort out it’s current issues before the developers look ahead to Seasons 2 and beyond. The fundamentals are there, and the gameplay is solid; if these can be polished and modernised, then Breakers would easily go from a niche oddity to a raging blast.

    The developers of Dimps had set themselves the goal of offering a peculiar asymmetrical multiplayer with a Dragon Ball theme, capable of immersing players in the tension of a game between cat and mouse lived on a tightrope. Unfortunately, due to a clear imbalance between the experience with villain and that in the role of the survivors, Dragon Ball: The Breakers fails to hit the mark, also given the only game mode present and the small number of maps available.

    Dragon Ball: The Breakers is a crude and poor video game, but it is not lacking in inventiveness. What I’m wondering is if, unlike other similar multiplayer titles, it will have time to evolve and improve over time, or if Bandai Namco will put an end to its service before the game formula is refined and enriched as it needs to be.

    Dragon Ball: The Breakers will probably live or die based on its initial release window. It is a game of growing pains so severe that it might scare off much of the audience. What that could leave is akin to a late-stage fighting game: the only players left are very good, forcing away even more newcomers. If players can get over this hurdle, and the one that simply playing the game provides, there's a depth to the mechanics that are satisfying to master. It is a game that offers a bit more complexity than competitor Dead By Daylight, but would have to sustain a player base to truly match it. Failing that, it could end another Friday The 13th; a totally fine game that can only be enjoyed with friends. As it stands now, though, a private game cannot exist without a full lobby of eight players, so even that might not be a realistic option. In a world with a glut of this genre, it doesn't do quite enough to require your time.

    Despite efforts to include a vast collection of Dragon Ball characters and references in The Breakers, going as far as to provide a somewhat logical explanation of why it is possible for dead villains and normal civilians being able to transform into your favorite heroes, the game is ultimately let down by its poor mechanics and systems. Instead of giving players a chance to sink their teeth into a new way to enjoy the storied franchise, Dragon Ball: The Breakers will only be consigned to the place of a bad memory, much like a poor filler episode of an anime.

    If you can stand the graphics, and if you either like Dragon Ball or asymmetrical games, you’d surely have a good time playing the game

    I enjoy the game a lot and it’s very addicting. Not much matching issue so far.

    I had a lot of fun playing this game with my friends. Only the look isn't a bit good. But I think I can play it for a long time.

    The game should be free and it's also full of microtransactions to level up, it's literally not worth 30 cents
