    If you are a longtime fan, you mileage may very on the experience since it’s nothing new honestly. It’s still a good game but might be worth waiting on a sale.

    This is the best DBZ game that I’ve ever played and like the anime it’s based on, it comes with flaws of its own. I floated in the middle when scoring this one, but rounded up because when this game hits the right notes, it hits them perfectly.

    In the end, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is still worth celebrating. For one it’s different from the usual "fight fight fight" setup of past DBZ games, with a focus on telling classic stories from the series. The ability to explore the world is especially wonderful for fans, and King Kai’s fantastic jokes make you yearn for a new Netflix stand-up special. Still, as a fan, I was left wishing there was more depth and activities to make the world feel more alive. Overall, it's a decent role-playing experience faithful to Dragon Ball Z that’s action-packed and entertaining. A game tailor made for DBZ fans. Nothing too groundbreaking, except for the attacks breaking the ground.

    This is an accurate Dragon Ball game for better or worse. It comes with the visual flair and iconic sound of the show alongside its over-the-top violence. It also comes with its fair share of meandering moments, outdated characters, and pointless minigames. If you wanted to get into DBZ but didn’t know where to start, this is a good introduction. But if you couldn’t care less about Dragon Ball or Eastern open world games, it won’t make you a believer.

    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.

    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.

    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

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