Dragon Ball Xenoverse is most definitely a step in the right direction for the nearly annual series, though there were still some missteps along the way. The choice to move towards a somewhat MMO setting is unique, even when played completely offline. The story is much improved over any recent entry, but is still deeply rooted in the familiar one that has been presented for more than a decade. While it does have its flaws, Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a must play for fans, as it easily has the most potential of any recent game in the series.

You’ll get about 12-15 good hours out of Dragon Ball XenoVerse’s single-player and co-op missions, but you probably won’t touch it much after that. But hey, 15 hours is pretty good for a full price game these days. If you are a fan of DBZ, especially if you have ever written a piece of DBZ fanfiction or made a piece of DBZ fanart, you should probably give Dragon Ball XenoVerse a try.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse is not the perfect Dragon Ball game, but it innovates a franchise that has long needed a fresh perspective. And while certain aspects and mechanics make the game slightly more annoying, the core experience is as strong as ever.

Customizing my own character’s equipment and move pool is fantastic...but it’s hard to get excited when combat feels hollow, especially for a franchise all about heroes stronger than Superman. The unique story features a nice change of pace from the anime’s sagas, but unfair missions left me annoyed. Considering how boring the competitive multiplayer is, I found cooperative Parallel Quests to be the best way to take the action online.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a game that manages to breath some fresh life into the retold story of Dragon Ball Z by allowing you as a player to create an original character and fight along side the Z fighters in some of their greatest fights. Mixing in RPG, customization and even some MMO elements the player is able to custom tailor their own character to their different fighting style and show off their creation to the world.

...For every one thing Dragon Ball Xenoverse gets right it gets ten wrong; even longtime fans (like yours truly) will have a hard time wanting to push through the layer after layer of sloppy, stupid choices and mistakes made here. Fans have been wishing for the perfect Dragon Ball Z game for a long time, and Dragon Ball Xenoverse makes it clear that they'll need to collect the dragon balls again and wish for something else, because this thing sucks harder than Yamcha.

Xenoverse stands as one of my favorite Dragon Ball Z video games. I like taking my own custom character into familiar battles from the show, and I enjoy acquiring new equipment as I progress. My character may have looked nothing like me, but I really felt like I was actively participating in the flashy action alongside the familiar cast.

A love letter to fans, Dragon Ball Xenoverse features almost every character, masses of content and the trademark vibrant and frenetic art style. Unfortunately, it's not really much fun to play, succeeding in being something of a repetitious slog. A game for the Dragon Ball purists, Xenoverse is unlikely to appeal to anyone else.

When it comes to the fighting, it has both epic moments - like the combats against an Ozaru - and lackluster encounters with too many characters on screen, where the camera goes crazy and the experience becomes unbearable. If you are a big fan of the series you will enjoy it, even if you have to swallow certain unwelcome elements. But if you are looking for a well-balanced fighting game where skill is the core, I recommend you to look elsewhere.

In the end, Dragon Ball Xenoverse is the very definition of a 7 out of 10 game according to the review policies of CGM. People unfamiliar with games themed around Dragon Ball Z will not find much here to latch onto, but fans of the Dragon Ball Z franchise will not know what to expect from a twist and turned filled time travel story that will rearrange all of their favorite characters until those fans can put them back in order again.

Tiene sus puntos negros, como una IA algo desajustada por momentos, la cámara difícil de domar o la carencia de algunos personajes que deberían estar, pero en global es un juego notable que si sois fans de la franquicia desde luego debéis probar. Shenron nos ha escuchado y, por fin, tenemos un juego de la serie que merece la pena comprar, disfrutar y explotar al máximo. Una base sobre la que construir el futuro de la saga, ya de cara a la nueva generación.

Esta vez el Dragon Shenron se ha portado bien. Nuestro deseo de obtener un Dragon Ball a la altura ha sido concedido con un Xenoverse que combina una trama original, mucha personalización, posibilidades online y fidelidad manganime para darnos un videojuego por el que merece la pena ponerse a buscar las bolas del dragón. Sólo sus altibajos a nivel de ritmo, sistema combativo y misiones lo alejan de considerarlo un super saiyan dentro de su categoría, pero sin duda da la talla: un paso adelante para Goku y compañía.

In den ersten Stunden hat mich Dragonball Xenoverse noch abgeschreckt: Karge Kulissen, lange Ladezeiten, umständliche Lobbies, die zickige Kamera, Lags und vieles andere wirken ziemlich altbacken. Als ich mich an die Macken des Spiels gewöhnt hatte, wurde es aber doch noch unterhaltsam. Vor allem das Aufpäppeln und individuelle Ausstatten meines Kriegers mit coolen Spezialattacken hat mich motiviert.

Avec son scénario original en partie inspiré du MMO asiatique Dragon Ball Online et l'intérêt provoqué par l'arrivée de la licence DBZ sur consoles New-Gen, Dragon Ball Xenoverse a de quoi intriguer les fans de longue date de l'oeuvre d'Akira Toriyama. Une réalisation indigne des nouvelles consoles et du PC combinée à de bonnes idées sous-exploitées font que Dragon Ball Xenoverse ne représente malheureusement pas le retour de DBZ sur le devant de la scène vidéoludique tant espéré.

D'autant qu'il y a pléthores de choses à faire dans le jeu, en local ou connecté aux joueurs du monde entier. Néanmoins, les combats ne sont pas hyper-attrayants et certains défauts, notamment les problèmes de caméra et la difficulté mal dosée, peuvent rendre le jeu assez énervant. Si l'on ajoute à ça des graphismes corrects et toutes les références faites ici et là à l'oeuvre d'Akira Toriyama, on n'obtient certes pas le meilleur jeu Dragon Ball de tous les temps, mais une production bien au dessus de ce qui a été fait ces dernières années au sujet de Goku et sa bande, et qui devrait satisfaire bien des fans.

Sans oublier cette ville immonde de Toki Toki City dans laquelle on passe le plus clair de notre temps et ces animations obsolètes des PNJ, à peine digne de l’ère PS2, ce qui nous permet de conclure que les efforts n’ont pas été les mêmes pour toute la production. Techniquement, c’est faible et la promesse next gen’ est loin d’avoir été tenue.

Это хорошая, качественная фансервисная игра, которая может на месяц вычеркнуть остальные развлечения из жизни. Да, такой трюк ей удается проделать главным образом с фанатами, но разве это недостаток? Новая аудитория рано или поздно найдет Dragon Ball сама – и тоже попробует Xenoverse, игру, способную заменить остальные выпущенные по бессмертной работе Акиры Ториямы.

Dragon Ball: Xenoverse'ün en büyük problemi ise sadece animenin hayranlarına hitap ediyor olması. Bu türe veya anime kültürüne yabancı olan biri için çekilmez sahnelerle dolu. Sıradan bir RPG oyuncusuna mantık hataları ile dolu, gereksiz bir dövüş oyunu olarak durabilir. Tam tersini düşünürsek, animenin hayranı biri için ise nadir bulunan bir cevher gibi parlaması muhtemel.

Met Dragon Ball Xenoverse heeft spelontwikkelaar Dimps de sterkste Dragon Ball Z-game in zeven jaar in handen. Helaas laten de makers het na om van Xenoverse ook daadwerkelijk het beste spel in de langlopende animatiereeks te maken, simpelweg doordat het de kern uit het oog heeft verloren. Ja, Xenoverse laat een frisse wind waaien door het verzadigde spelaanbod en past met zijn (online) rpg-elementen perfect in de huidige tijdsgeest. Maar als dat ten koste gaat van het vechtsysteem, het kloppend hart van een vechtspel, dan weet je eigenlijk al hoelaat het is.

Ett tillfredsställande uppgraderingssystem, häftiga fighter, ett lättbegripligt kontrollmönster, bra co-op online och framför allt den egenskapade karaktären, är alla tecken på att utvecklaren Dimps kan sin sak och är villiga att ta spelserien i en fräsch riktning. Spelet är tack vare detta helt klart godkänt, trots de negativa punkter jag har tagit upp.
