This game is quite disappointing. I’d recommend just watching DBZ. Only 4 hours in but it ain’t getting better.

I watched a friend play through the beginning. It looks like An amazing game for Dragon Ball fans, but it won't likely appeal very much to people that aren't into the series, which is typical for an anime game.

Do you guys remember the stuff we got during the 6th and 7th gens? They've come a long way with these, and the game is a joy.

Already got it for $40 during previous b2g1 but won’t be arriving till this weekend so ordered and cancelled to get one for pick up today for $33. I’d say that’s the sweet spot. After finding out there’s no multiplayer. Not even coop?

There are scenes / explanations for events in the anime that have never been seen. Biggest plus. Combat is meh, overworld explore is simplistic and unpolished, flight scenes and picking up orbs same.

It feels like an addendum to the Z series at best.

Picked it up at Gamestop this weekend with some trade credit and am really having a blast with the game. It is far from perfect, but if you like DBZ this game is like a dream come true.

For those who already have the game, does the combat feel like Xenoverse? That's the biggest gripe I have looking at videos showing off gameplay.

Having a blast with the game so far and if you are a Dragon Ball Z fan I highly recommend it.

Not exactly. You’ll primarily use the face buttons to dash and pummel repeatedly until you have to block. You use the shoulder triggers to block and modify attacks to specials. You dodge sideways with projectiles etc. You can focus and launch weaker projectiles. There are a few timing moves you can do after blocking. You can use healing items so even the seemingly difficult fights are trivial if you prepare. I have only used 3 different fighters but all were similar.

When the fights got more difficult I was enjoying it- once I learned to use items it started to feel a bit drawn out taking off 5-6 life bars with the same pattern.

The story is definitely the big draw here imho.

No, the combat is better in Kakarot. The core of the gameplay is similar, but this is just more fun to play.

I would describe it as airborne JoJo. The system is very similar.

Something I’ve been doing that is cool and has me reminiscing- I’m following along in the anime. I haven’t seen the first season in about 20 years. It’s neat to see how the designers tackled the story and what they added / cut.

Was going to try this with Final Fantasy XII for switch. Is it actually dead now?

Worked for me. Did Kakarot as pick up and shipped 2-RE 3s. Once I placed the order, canceled the REs and was charged $37 with tax for DBZ

I think it's because I chose RE3 which was more expensive. I didn't realize it until way after I posted this. Oh well, still better than full price

I ordered 3 and cancelled 2, but my “estimated tax” is still showing the full amount. Will this fix itself when I pick it up?

EDIT: Never mind, it just fixed itself. $33.41 total. Not bad!!

Probably also because you missed out on the Save $10 on your entire purchase when you spend $100 and select same day delivery or pick up.

 

You should have ordered the two RE3s for pick up.

Was waiting for a price drop on this game and didnt think there'd be any deals so close to release. Picked up the game no problem. Did exactly as others said. 2 shipped, 1 pick up. Total was $36.34 including tax.

Hopefully I can beat this game fast enough to trade it into Best Buy for a decent price.

You can't choose store pickup for pre-orders.

It’s not as bad as watching the uncut series. And it adds some stuff you’ll appreciate if you’re a big fan.

Did anyone do it with the one they are keeping to ship and the other two order pickup and then cancel order pickup? Also do you charged immediately

To think, we used to complain when the entire story wasn't present. Lmao

It’s a fun romp. Fans will love it- if you’ve never experienced then watching the series is superior.

So far it’s on and off. Some great cutscenes/voice acting some half assed, which makes you feel underwhelmed. CC2’s Storm series is so much better in terms of cutscenes, QTE’s, boss battles. Boss battles are good in this game too just could’ve been more cinematic in between fights. Gameplay is pretty solid n fun, I bet Kakarot 2 would be much better, if we assume it’s basically like Naruto Storm 1, dragonball version. In Storm 2 they added substitution bars. Also more combos. Wish this game had more combos as well. Solid 7.5 so far. Good game but a lot of room for improvement
