    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.

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!

    DBFZ is hands down the best DBZ game made to date.

    That being said the game does have some minor problems:
    Audio issues cause random cracks of sound.
    The lip syncing for English is bad.
    I've had the game crash once so far.
    So nothing to major, but should be pointed out.

    As for the story, I'll give the game credit for trying something new and not just re-telling the same story from the anime we've seen in dozens of games by now. However, it does drag on to the point were you just want to rush to the end to get the unlockable character. So points for originality, but lost them for being boring.

    Just a good fighting game overall and a good buy for any DBZ fan.

Les combats sont nerveux, les graphismes sontDragon Ball FighterZ est un jeu ultra addictif, une fois démarré, il est difficile de s’arrêter. Les combats sont nerveux, les graphismes sont exceptionnels, et l'univers est envoûtant. C'est une bombe que Bandai Namco vient de lâcher, qui rend non seulement hommage à la licence, mais aussi aux fans de longue date qui attendaient un retour en puissance d'un jeu Dragon Ball ; un rêve devenu réalité. Cette production est accueillante et adaptée à tout le monde. Elle vise les débutants, les experts, mais aussi les professionnels ; Dragon Ball FighterZ est parfait pour l'eSport (attendez-vous à voir des combats complètement fous dans les mois à venir). Arc System Works est un studio déjanté qui prouve encore une fois son savoir-faire. Ce n'est pas un Butôden ni un Budokai, mais un FighterZ ! L'essayer, c'est l'adopter ! Expand

The Story mode consists of fighting the same 'Clones' which are just Characters from the game with a different color pattern, it's extremely lazy and gets boring QUICK. The story mode is long for a fighting game, but mostly because its filled with cutscenes, some that are interesting and funny, and some that are just boring and pointless, like the same repetitive cut scenes of one of your characters reacting to fighting one of his clones. This is by far one of the worst and most boring story mode in a fighting game i've ever played. The Arcade mode is alright and pretty basic just like any other arcade mode in fighting games. The main problem i have with fighterz though is the just sheer lack of content. The only thing you can do really is play online matches with other people, and even that can be a chore since sometimes the matchmaking is just god awful and the servers will completely just **** itself. The game by no means is easily accesable if you're a casual, they have auto combos in the game which basically means if you spam Light attack or medium attack you'll perform a decently sized combo, but there is no combos list, and if you actually want to get better at the game and actually learn how to play (the in game tutorial doesnt really help at all) you'll have to go out of your way and watch youtube videos, go through many sites and google docs just to find a **** combo list (Since because yaknow, adding a move list with universal combos and character specific combos in the game is just too difficult) and learn Fighting game terms, so you'll have to outsource on that, and that alone scares tons of casuals away, hence why the casuals have already left this game. So at the end of the day, its a empty competitive fighting game that severely lacks content, with the only thing to keep you going being the community and competition. Expand
