    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.

    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 is not RPG...

    Auto lv up when you end mission. Very boring exploration Mini games who show too late Side quest like from mmo

    Very boring exploration
    Mini games who show too late
    Side quest like from mmo generator

    Good story mode, but i so many cut-scenes, 60% this mode is watching story and 40% is gameplay

    Strange fight mechanic, when my Genki Dama disappears if enemy hit me, when i hit my enemy with special attack, he can still attack me...

    I have problem on my pad, when i use block, sometimes i get slowmotion and menu to transformation... Man i wanna block enemy attack! no use transformation!

    Where is tournament mode?

    O jogo é uma boa pedida pra os grandes fãs do anime, pois aumentar o universo da obra, porem como jogo não é tão bom assim, combate muitoO jogo é uma boa pedida pra os grandes fãs do anime, pois aumentar o universo da obra, porem como jogo não é tão bom assim, combate muito simples e sem grande estrategia, mundo aberto fraco e missões segundarias sem graça, alem de uns sistema de inventario horrível, ao comprar um jogo como esse você acredita que serrar uma jogo com combate excelente e historia intensa, porem o jogo é super rapado, eu só concluir a saga dos sayans e em mais de 40 minutos de jogo você luta apenas 2 vezes. Conclusão: so jogue se amar Dragon ball, pois como jogo ele é fraco demias Expand

A Fcking fighting game with no multiplayer or split screen ? No versus mode? Basically you have to go through the story or else? Nothing?
    I have watched Dragon Ball a zillion times already, I don't need to go through it all again!
    FCK OFF!
