Dragon Ball Origins 2

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I am so very blessed to be able to play and review Dragonball Origins 2 on the Nintendo DS. Goku is back and this time he needs to face off against the Red Ribbon Army. He gets help from Krillin, Bulma, Yamcha, and other characters. Two players can team up and battle in a co-op mode as well. Dragonball Origins 2 improves upon the original in almost every way.

Game's storyline is more mature than the TV show's fans.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that while Dragon Ball Origins 2 is based on a cartoon series that appeals to kids as young as 8 or 9, there are some very mature themes at play here. The game got a "T" (teen) rating for a reason. The playable action is, though violent, not much worse than what you'd find in a game with an "E10+" rating. It's the storyline and animated cut scenes and dialogue that raise the appropriate age limit here.

Dragon Ball: Origins 2

The Gamers Temple
17 November 2010
  • Excerpt: DS game a few years ago. Back then, the original Dragon Ball series was not available on DVD, and the original manga could only be read in English through a series of too-expensive small graphic novels. In 2010, VizBig editions of the original Dragon Ball manga are available and affordable, and the last of the five seasons of the original Dragon Ball anime will release on DVD in July.

Dragon Ball: Origins 2 (DS) Review

22 July 2010
  • Summary: Origins 2 is an interesting case that I often don’t see in video games. You are given a good story that is beautifully crafted, using minimal voice acting and relying solely on contextual clues, small sound clips and clever writing, and placed in a world that should be highly immersive given the depth of the universe. The graphics are a perfect blend of video games, anime and comic books and musically it’s hard to complain.

That poor, poor dragon.

Game Revolution
9 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Ahh, Dragon Ball ... I always seem to be on my way back to you. Sure, some people say you're nothing but overly-long “I'm gonna channel my energy” sequences and fight scenes with only five frames of unique animation tossed together, or the story of “Mama said knock you out!” told over 40 episodes that for any other series would be over in 13. Oh wait, no, that's DBZ , not DB . DB is about an adorable little crazy-naive child that beats up bad guys and collects balls.
  • Pros: Graphics are sharper than the first game, Controls are sharp, Multiple unique characters to control
  • Cons: Minimal voice acting in cut-scenes, Fighting is repetitive and boring, Seventeen-hundreth time this story's been told

Dragon Ball: Origins 2

GameSpot
6 July 2010
  • Excerpt: At first glance, Dragon Ball: Origins 2 appears poised to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, an enjoyable adventure with gameplay strong enough to appeal to diehard followers of the anime and the uninitiated alike. But that impression quickly fades, courtesy of this sequel's wildly uneven difficulty and determination to punish you for failure. Origins 2 does have its charms, but they exist in the shadow of its baffling frustrations.
  • Pros: Lively storytelling captures the fun of the source material, Playing as different characters brings some variety to the action
  • Cons: Poor use of save points leads to a lot of frustration, Combat lacks depth and gets old quickly, Dull, drawn-out boss fights
