    Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a potent Genki Dama to the series’ longstanding issues, and a bigger, better game than the original by every stretch of the imagination. A true must-have for any Dragon Ball fan.

    Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a love letter to the series’ biggest fans. Newcomers might not understand what’s happening, but fans will appreciate the high-octane supernatural martial arts. The attention to detail is astounding, from the lovingly made hub world to the cutscenes that recreate classic scenes from the anime. The story takes about 15-20 hours, but building up your custom character and completing quests easily quadruples that number.

    Xenoverse 2 feels more in line with what I wanted the original game to be, with its flexible combat engine, wealth of compelling content and an online component that actually worked properly from day 1. Even with the issues with the frequent crashes and the dumb AI, this is still a wet dream for DBZ fans and comes highly recommended.

    Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 should be an instant buy for long time fans of the series, and warrants a deep look from everyone else. I’d love to see a bit longer of a gap between this and the (hopefully) inevitable Xenoverse 3 than the year between the first and second titles to really hammer out some of the game’s issues, but until then we’ve still been left with a fighting game that does enough well, and enough different from its competitors, to stand worthy as it is.

    Dimps has created a sequel to Xenoverse that doesn’t quite feel like a massive advancement in the series, but there is no doubt that this is a larger and more improved experience. Dimps has decided to keep things similar and use the first game as the foundation to build this sequel on. What this means is that there is so much to do, even when one has finished up the 15 hour single player story quests.

    While Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 may be a better game than the original, it is by no means excellent. The story seems like an uninspired rehash, and the minimal roster changes makes it feel like a director's cut instead of a true sequel. On the PC in particular, the online community is practically extinct, and the game's semi-frequent crashes disappoint. If you're willing to put up with all that, you'll be treated to a game that feels like what the original should have been, and the fighting system is chaotic and fun. Provided this one does well, here's hoping that another sequel manages to get everything right.

    Negatives: the story, at the beginning it is a copy of the first game, afterwards becomes totally messed...
    The music is simply awful. The game is still a beta with many bugs, moves that miss the target, characters that dissapear in the walls, casting moves that never happens... Bandai also changed the 1 year support to 6 months...

I think the idea of playing through the db story is great but, it is just the same thing. I think it would've been great if we started in the first Dragon Ball series and work through that story, then build into Z and super. Starting off at the Radizt every time gets boring. I also think there should've been what if's like in the budokai series like "what if Vegeta had SSJ3?" so we don't need to rely on the modding community for that. Also there is the bad online, and NO ANIMATED TALES. But most of these problems are fixed with the game's biggest pro (at least for PC), the modding community. The modding community is great and adds, fixes many singleplayer problems with the game. But with the lackluster plot, and the lack of innovation are big problems for the game. But it does have many pros, like the modding community on PC, solid combat, and great ideas. This game will have another sequel in the future and I think this is just another stepping stone for the XV series. Expand

    Everything seams to need polishing. In-game game play is about the only good thing about this one. The fighting is OK but too loose.Everything seams to need polishing.

Everything outside the game play like GUI, animations and sound feels like it is done on an amateur level. 3 hours then I bounced. Expand

    giant hub worlds and mute customizable characters is not what dragon ball games need....and flashy combos alone is not what makes a dragon ball game be great.
