    We expected just another installment of DBZ, with the same story, the same battles, with no originality... We were wrong! Dragon Ball Raging Blast 2 pushes the limits of the genre with a new combat system that makes all possible. A beautiful game, super fast, comprehensive and very technical. One of the really best DBZ fighting games.

    A deep 3D fighter. [Feb 2011, p.114]

    But if I were a fan, I'd enjoy it a bit more because it does feel like an authentic, quality (relatively speaking) Dragon Ball experience.

    There is so much content on the disc that it is hard not to recommend the game to DBZ fans. Sure the combat can be frustrating at times, but once you get past that this is one collection of fan service that should not be missed.

    Basically, if you can wrap your head around the complex controls, then you might get some enjoyments out of this fighter.

    The previous part wasn't really great and the developer didn't learn anything from the last time. This second part is a game with some new features but without a story and the same problems are still present. What a shame.

    It's certainly a question of quantity over quality.

Many peoples' main knock against this game is it's "shallowDragonball raging blast 2 is a fighting game based on the dragonball anime series. Many peoples' main knock against this game is it's "shallow fighting system". I totally and blatantly disagree. It is such a deep fighting game that I feel that its' steep learning curve makes it appear shallow. You have so many options in this game. Ya, sure it may not be the kind of deep traditional fighters are in a way where you have to memorize strings and strings of buttons in order to pull off the best combos, but this doesn't necessarily mean it isn't deep. If one goes throught the tutorials one will learn that the fighting mechanics are in deed very very deep if you take the time to learn them and realize this isn't a traditional fighter. There are so many subtleties and options you have in fight , that I am really bothered by the fact that this game's fighting system is considered shallow especially when you take into consideration the range of movement you have compared to a traditional fighter like tekken or street fighter. It's just as deep, ujust in a different way. In order to make a fighter that shows off what a dbz character can do, certain elements are a necessity. The online is great, there are good game modes, and most importantly, the customization of characters' moves before a fight is great. Two ss1 gokus can fight each other and be totally different. The onle real negative I have to say is the story mode is kind of weak in that there are no cut scenes or anything, but they do offer quite a bit of variety in the types of fights you must do. Underrated game that I know will continue to be underrated. All in all, if you give it a chance, I fully believe you will be happy you took the time to try it out. I haven't met one person who played the game and didn't like it. Expand

    Its a refinded experience, not more nothing less, the combat has changed a lot from RB1 making it feel like you have to learn it all again, itIts a refinded experience, not more nothing less, the combat has changed a lot from RB1 making it feel like you have to learn it all again, it has a steep learning curve, this game is for Hardcore DBZ fans, again no GT BUT all the characters are balanced, online is MUCH improved, if some1 leaves a game they get penalised for it! The graphics are very nice, music is so so, the theme song rocks! The combat is face paced and its the deepest anime fighter out there! new characters are nice GT would of been nice but SS4 goku would be way overpowered, the Anime included is nice but NO DUB :( the jap is fine but i prefer english. Galaxy mode is a nice addition, be warned there is no story mode, like a summary but there are loads of characters to choose from, im hoping RB3 will include everything next year! Great game otherwise! Expand

    Major score is so low because of the fans disagreeing on which type is better, budokai or tenkaichi?
    This game is a nice continuation on tenkaichi type, improvred combo and special system, nice graphics for ps3's and xbox360's hardware, alot of content and a movie/special remake featuring a brand new character to the roster. Roster is good, with lots of new and never used characters, this game has hours and hours of playable matches, it's not a typical 8-12 hour shor-story game, this game is 20 and more hours full of content with chalanging foes, lots of custamization and full of actual DBZ gameplay.

    Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2

    Game-play:The combat in this game is an improvement from the first one with more combos special moves and faster game play with less camera problems.Not to difficult to learn.I really love 3d fighting games.

    Story:Sadly the story has been replaced with a galaxy mode that you fight random opponents.

    Graphics:Great graphics i love them.

    Notes:This game could get i higher score if had a story mode,The is a movie with the game not very good but is a nice half hour time killer,a good game i recommend to buy it when it gets a price drop.

Also the remake of the anime movie "Plan to eradicate the super saiyans" is a joke since they did not rewrite it in english! so unless you plan on reading subtitles for the next half hour this is also a waste of time! So in all sure there are about 90 playable characters but they only got to that number by counting everyones different forms like gohan has like ten forms just of him (kid gohan,teen gohan,adolesent gohan, ssj gohan, ssj2 gohan, future gohan) like wtf is that in my book that counts as one character that has different forms not 7 different characters for each form! So if your a hardcore fan and were hoping to see a brand new game where you get to play as the badest characters think twice before you waste 60 bucks on a game that was all hipe trust me its not worth it if you own the first raging blast your not getting anything new unless you feel like wasting money to see a few new characters who are **** anyways!
