    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.

Excellent combat, tons of stuff to complete and collect, online and offline multiplayer (even comes with a single-joycon 1v1 mode to play with friends). I've yet to give the motion controls a try so I can't really comment on them, but I've been able to have tons of fun with traditional button inputs. If you're lacking a solid fighting game on your Switch (like there's many to choose from), look no further. Expand

Looks amazing both portable and docked. The solo/single player game is really addictive and will keep you occupied for many hours. Multiplayer can be a bit weird since there is no split-screen. Also, you cannot remove the time limit which restrains you to 3-minute fights, which is a very small amount of time for fights. Even though it's not as good as Dragon Ball Budokai Tenkaichi is, it's a game that I would recommend for Dragon Ball fans mainly for the great single player experience it offers. Expand
