    It's a dream game for Dragon Ball die-hards, a great new way to test your skills for fighting game nuts and an all-around great experience for everyone else in between. The story and arcade modes present plenty of challenge and things to keep you occupied, and the roster is large enough to make no two battles feel the same. And, refreshingly, the online modes appeal to not just those who have immersed themselves in online battles for years, but newcomers and even just the mildly interested as well. At present time, the PS4 version looks to be the one to get due to a few issues with the Xbox One's online capabilities, but both versions perform even better than you might have hoped. For a game with nearly a full year of hype behind it, Dragon Ball FighterZ delivers in ways that will exceed even the most lofty of expectations. This is a fighting game for the ages.

    While there have been many fighting games based on the Dragon Ball franchise, Dragon Ball FighterZ marks a modern approach through the means of fast-paced action. From its breathtaking visuals to ease of gameplay mastery, the new fighter is a good stepping stone to expand the fan base of the genre. However, it may not satisfy players who are looking for complexity.

    Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the best Fighting games that holds an Anime License. The package brings us great visuals, fun gameplay and a rich content making it one of the most memorable experiences in this genre.

    Successfully bridging the gap between the casual and hardcore crowds, Dragon Ball FighterZ is an excellent, gorgeous fighter that can draw you in, whether you're a fan of the franchise or not.

    If you’re looking for a fighter, there is simply nothing better on the market than Dragon Ball FighterZ in terms of what it offers as a 2D, high action brawler.

    A brilliant fighting game for newcomers, and a wonderful one for genre fans, that somehow still manages to feel like a disappointment for so comprehensively failing to bring its two demographics together. [Apr 2018, p.112]

    Quite possibly the best 2D fighter ever made. This is why we play games in the first place. There have been decent DB games before this, butQuite possibly the best 2D fighter ever made. This is why we play games in the first place. There have been decent DB games before this, but nothing close to FighterZ. The animation, combined with artistic graphics really set it apart from other games and it also beautifully complements the gameplay. It's so brisk, and is one of the greatest technical achievements in the genre and can't be avoided Expand

En sí mismo el diseño del juego me parece perfecto, pero tiene unos detalles como la inteligencia artificial de la computadora, la cual me parece básica utilizando el recurso de aumentar el daño del enemigo siendo injusto más que difícil y el modo historia me parece repetitivo.

    JOGABILIDADE - Dragon Ball FighterZ apresenta uma jogabilidade totalmente satisfatória, fácil de aprender, consegue agradar tanto players casuais em jogos de luta, quanto os experientes. Os combos são muito interessantes de serem realizados, e os golpes especiais (como Kamehameha, final flash, etc...) são incríveis.

    HISTÓRIA - A história de Dragon Ball FigtherZ apresenta como vilã a Androide 21, personagem criado especificamente para o jogo. O game apresenta 3 enredos (arcos) diferentes para o jogador, onde enfrentaremos vários clones dos personagens do anime para chegarmos até a batalha final contra a Androide 21. A história dos 3 arcos são interessantes e bem contadas, porém, para chegarmos até a ultima luta, enfrentar clones por muitas vezes pode ficar enjoativo.

    PERSONAGENS - Aqui está um dos principais problemas do jogo, Dragon Ball FigtherZ apresenta poucos personagens, contando apenas com os principais do anime (como Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Bills, Freeza, etc...) e a vilã androide 21. Cada personagem tem golpes únicos e apresentam várias variações de golpes e combos diferentes, mas outro ponto que o jogo peca é o fato de que todos são competitivos entre si e não apresentam muitas diferenças de força, por exemplo, no game quando dois jogadores do mesmo nível se enfrentam, Yamcha pode vencer normalmente o Bills, ou Kuririn derrotar o Hit (fato que no anime isso seria impossível acontecer).

    Dragon Ball FighterZ é um dos melhores jogos de luta da atual geração, apresenta uma das melhores jogabilidades já feita, tem uma campanha interessante de acompanhar, porém enjoativa,
    e a falta de personagens dentro do game aumenta ainda mais essa sensação.

However, at times, I felt like I could fight my way through by button mashing - similar to how I felt with Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. It may be just a personal preference within the fighting game genre though hence why I'm not giving it an 8-9. Also, some of the online matching up could be worked out, but it's definitely better than it was during the Beta, so don't judge the game on that. Whether you're a fighting game enthusiast or Dragon Ball Z enthusiast. I still do recommend giving this game a shot despite my rating. Expand
