    There are dozens of Dragon Ball Z games and Kakarot represents only the latest attempt to fully retell the manga’s story in videogame form. However, the quality of the experience makes a strong argument for this entry being the last one since the cartoon graphics perfectly recreate Toriyama’s visuals and the story hits every beat far better than the anime managed to. By presenting a great story with such perfect fealty, it’s safe to say that (for now, at least) Kakarot is the definitive Dragon Ball Z videogame.

    I am currently sitting at about 40 hours into the game and have beaten the main story, I would highly recommend Dragon Ball Z Kakarot to any fan out there. If you are looking for a serious fighting game, this is not for you. I would point this player to something more like Dragon Ball Z Fighters. If you are looking for a game that brings out your inner dragon ball anime-loving child then this is perfect for you. My only suggestion would be to not over-analyze what is missing but enjoy the new content and soak up the overall experience.

    Wow, an Anime adaption so close to the original! Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot creates an unique feeling of nostalgia. Playing the full Z-Story with Goku, Gohan and all of their friends feels so light-hearted as it did watching the series as a child. Thanks, Cyber Connect 2.

    Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is one of the best Dragon Ball games out there, but leaving behind the Dragon Ball name, it's one of the most generic and uninspired titles out there and could have benefited greatly with a little more time in the oven.

    Kakarot is mediocre as a game, but excellent as a Dragon Ball experience. The combat is just okay, the world is mostly empty, and the game has too much fluff, but as a longtime fan I enjoyed myself a lot.

    Poor RPG mechanics aside, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is a great way to relive the DBZ's story, flaws and all.

    What I enjoyed was minimal compared to the game’s content, so it does not come with a high recommendation. But if you’re a hardcore DBZ fan like I am, you’ll still manage to find some entertainment in the game. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is not the best love letter written to fans, but it’s still a love letter nonetheless.

    This game made good use of the original animation.
    I'm satisfied as a fan, but not enough as a game.

    Um jogo que perde um potencial enorme com tão pouco.
    O jogo em seus trailers, passa que o jogo é uma adaptação incrível e moderna do clássico anime, mas peca terrivelmente em seu conteúdo.
    começando pelas cenas pré-renderizadas, o jogo não consegue entregar algo da própria engine, apesar dos gráficos serem lindissimos e detalhados, o jogo peca ao não confiar em seu motor gráfico,
    O mundo aberto apesar de parecer recheado de novidades para explorar, não passa de algo vago com varios inimigos que te atacam a cada 1km que você passa, iniciando uma luta automaticamente e só te permitindo sair dela derrotando os mesmos, tornando o jogo cansativo, massante e até mesmo frustrante, algo completamente desnecessário.
    Fora também os órbes que ficam pelos céus, comprometendo o horizonte e seu cenário deslumbrante, voar e pegar esses órbes torna o jogo não muito superior que o Superman 64...

    Amo a Cyberconnect2 e seus jogos, tanto a franquia Storm quanto Asura's Wrath, e todos eles conseguem ser mais solidos e interessantes no final do que o jogo mais importante que a desenvolvedora teve em mãos, pois estamos falando das maiores obras do mundo pop, Dragon Ball Z..

You can buy items to make it easier(HP recover) but for that, you must spend time farming. While too simple in some ways(empty scenarios, not much to do), It's unnecessary complex in some other ways, they tried to compensate filling it with things like the "badges with characters faces" system or collecting random objects. The game forces the player to do boring things to continue the story, they increase the duration of the game in the cheapest possible way. Expand

    I have watched Dragon Ball a zillion times already, I don't need to go through it all again!
