    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

Probably one of the best, if not THE best, 2D fighting game of the decade, at least in the DBZ universe. It´s dynamic, fast paced, fun and challenging. The only downside is that most of the characters by now are paid, and in comparison to the full roster, the vanilla one feels kinda empty, but you can pick the remaining characters at steam sales for a very low price. I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH, BUY THIS GAME, YOU WON´T REGRET IT. Expand

Horewer, the story mode is a little better because the boots are not so buffed like in arcade, but you only have a feel caracheters avaible, you can't use guys like, Trunks, Kid boo, Berrus, Black, Hit and all the Dlc guys... For those who like tho play offline, this game is dispensable. Expand

    Un gioco di MERDA, Come idea ci sta portare i personaggi che tutti amano in un nuovo stile ma il gioco è troppo e sottolineo TROPPO caoticoUn gioco di MERDA, Come idea ci sta portare i personaggi che tutti amano in un nuovo stile ma il gioco è troppo e sottolineo TROPPO caotico non si capisce quasi niente oltre al fatto che è uno dei primi giochi di dragonball dove vi sono una ventina di personaggi Gratis e tutti gli altri sono a PAGAMENTO c'è ci sono personaggi che costano 5€ l'uno.
    Per non parlare poi dei tasti ma che CAZZO di gioco
    Picchiaduro utilizza questi tasti .
    L'unico punto forte è la storia che non ti puoi godere al massimo per colpa dei problemi elencati prima .
    Un gioco creato solo per farci soldi senza uno scopo
