Dragonball Xenoverse 2
Systems: PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4.
Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
Release Date: October 25, 2016
Dragonball Xenoverse 2 is an Action-RPG mixture. There are combos, specials, beam attacks, and strike supers. You fly around abusing your opponent. (Or getting abused.) It’s a lot of button mashing but it works for the platform. While using your created character you will level up and make different stats go up, that along with the gear you wearing will affect you on how well your attacks and health and ki will be in the actual fight. You can play as one of 5 races, Majin, Namekian, Human, Saiyan, and Frieza race. Each race has its own combo set and pluses and minuses. I personally played Frieza race first and Golden Frieza is a sweet power-up.
The Single Player:
The single player is a lot of abuse on the CPU. The Story mode is similar to the original game, even repeating some of the same missions, which is kind of let down. If you played the first game on your system of choice, the person that you beat the story mode with will be the hero of the city in this game, giving you access to all the moves that character had. The game has a lot of things to do, story quests, side quests, training with Dragonball characters.
You can do parallel quests with your friends as well as expert missions, or you can fight with other players online in battles. There is a World martial arts tournament you can enter. Other than that, the multiplayer is about the same as single player.
Final Thoughts: 75%
Dragonball Xenoverse 2 is a fun game for Dragonball fans, I thoroughly enjoyed the game, and easily logged a week of game time in as soon as I got the game and opened it up. It’s worth the buy and to play because each race has a transformation, as well as there is multiple ways to build your character and play.
- Extremely fun game, worth a try.
- Multiple races to play so it has replay value.
- You get to fight giant apes!
- Some of the missions are repeats from the first game.
- The missions are super repetitive sometimes.
- The scale of difficulty is absurd sometimes.
