    Two points deducted from the original 91% for the paid DLC and the miniscule downgrade in graphics, but five added for Xenoverse story missions and the portability the Switch offers.

    An excellent port that gets even bigger on Nintendo's hybrid system because of its new controls.

    While not a huge fan of Dragon Ball in general, I can say that I’m a fan of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on the Switch. It does have its flaws. Namely with the camera and some of the training. Plus the combat can get repetitive as you mash out the same combos, at least in the early going. But I can definitely say that I found a Dragon Ball game that I can enjoy coming back to from time to time.

    Overall, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Nintendo Switch is a fun game which works well when you get over the steep learning curve of fighting the game’s controls. Playing through the entirety of the DBZ story is a blast, and while some design flaws persisted to the port to the Switch, the game is still worth a play if you are a fan of the series.

    Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was an entertaining but flawed game when it was released last year and it remains such on Nintendo Switch. If anything, this port feels like the worst version to pick up, with numerous graphical sacrifices and severe frame rate issues in the hub city whilst playing on the handheld mode. It does include the main story quests from the first game so newcomers won’t miss out on anything (even though the sequel’s story is similar), but the newly-added motion controls, while a novel idea, are far from the ideal way to play the game. The only appealing aspect for someone who has already enjoyed Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is that this version allows you to play it on the go, but even then it’s a messy port. For those new to the series, this is a solid entry point, but don’t expect it to set your world on fire.

Al ser un juego actionDragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 es recomendadísimo para jugarlo en Nintendo Switch, especialmente si eres un fan de esta saga. Al ser un juego action RPG, posee mecánicas intuitivas aunque bastas por lo que al principio memorizar el control va a tomar un tiempo. Esta versión es mucho más valioso en Switch respecto a otras plataformas, no tan solo por la obvia posibilidad de jugarlo en portátil, sino mas bien porque incluye la historia del primer Xenoverse en forma de DLC.

Puede que no sea de competición como el FighterZ pero puedes jugar de forma casual y no tardas más de un par de peleas en volver a tener el nivel que tenías cuando lo dejaste por última vez.

    Éste fue mi primer juego de la switch ya que había jugado al 1 en la PS4, sabía que me gustaría y por aquel entonces era la época de Dragon Ball Super y me pudo el Hype.
    Lo que más me gustaría destacar de éste juego es que ejemplifica lo que deberían de ser los DLCs. Mientras estaba jugando a este juego el lore de dragon ball no paraba de expandirse y el equipo de xenoverse se mantenía al día sacando luchadores DLC a medida que salían nuevos personajes en Super. No es como el típico juego de lucha que recorta los luchadores para vendérselos después sino que realmente expandían el juego para hacerlo mejor y tenerlo a día con la serie. Además que seguían sacando nuevos modos de juego y hasta terminaron regalando la historia del xenoverse 1.

    Si buscas un juego de lucha al que poder jugar de forma casual éste es tu juego.

I was really iffy on this game because I wasn't sure how I would feel about the fighting mechanics, but I was pleasantly surprised with how they handled. Only complaint I would have is how slow the beginning could be, but I can understand for newer players it's helpful. However, if you want to try out multiple races and different characters then it's always slow, but that's not even that big of an issue. Expand
