    To put it simply, Dragon Ball FighterZ is stunning in motion.

    Dragon Ball FighterZ is fun on so many levels. I had fun with it as a competitive hardcore fighting game. I had fun with it as a hopeless screaming otaku. I even had fun grinding up Zeni to unlock characters and dress my lobby avatar up. I haven’t had this much fun with a fighting game in a very long time. DBFZ is one title that casuals and pros alike won’t want to miss.

    Polished, fast, over-the-top and most of all fun, Dragon Ball FighterZ is a fighting game worth more than just a passing glance. Its lengthy campaign alone will keep you glued to the action for a while, but its other gameplay options and Dragon Ball universe depth make it something of a must own -- whether your DBZ fan alumni, or fighting game guru. One of the year’s excellent fighting game releases.

    Great anime fighting game with a scalable and very dynamic combat system that should thrill beginners and professionals alike.

    Dragon Ball FighterZ is a great game that should be an automatic purchase for any fans of the Dragon Ball franchise, and is worth a hard look from anyone that may be intimidated to jump into their first fighting game. It’s too early to make claims about the game’s longevity, balance, and online community, but the pieces are certainly in place to for the game to have some legs.

    Accessible yet complex, chaotic yet beautiful, this is the real fighting game deal.

    This fighter looks great, sounds better, having enough depth and complexity to warrant its asking price. Every detail is tended to, which makes fun, challenging gameplay that is easy to learn but hard to master.

    Quite possibly the best 2D fighter ever made. This is why we play games in the first place. There have been decent DB games before this, butQuite possibly the best 2D fighter ever made. This is why we play games in the first place. There have been decent DB games before this, but nothing close to FighterZ. The animation, combined with artistic graphics really set it apart from other games and it also beautifully complements the gameplay. It's so brisk, and is one of the greatest technical achievements in the genre and can't be avoided Expand

    The DBZ game that I always wanted.

    It is a proper 3v3 2d fighting game that takes inspiration from the Guilty Gear series as well as Marvel vs Capcom series when that series was great.

    The fights are fast-paced and the game is a visual spectacle to behold. The game also has a wonderful soundtrack.

    The base game roster covers all of the main players from Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super.

    This is definitely the best Dragonball Z game I played in a while and it may quite possibly be the best Dragonball Z game of all time, even usurping Budokai 3 and Budokai Tenkaichi 3 finally!

    If you are a fan of Dragonball Z at all, this is a must buy!

    The same guys that brought you Extreme Butoden bring you this solid fighter. By no means is this game perfect it needs work.

    First thing
    The same guys that brought you Extreme Butoden bring you this solid fighter. By no means is this game perfect it needs work.

    First thing that set me off the loading times are horrible, 35- 45 seconds to load each match that lasts about one minute is beyond me. These load times should be half that. Too much damn time watching loading .

    2) Story is boring a fuk! Worst is the story cut-scenes lag and are not smooth. Very choppy cut-scenes take you out of watching the anime experience.

    The fighting is solid and on point . Fast, frantic, fun but the longevity is something to take into question as most fighting games loose attention after a few months.

    Soild game but not Great. 7/10
