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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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!
  • 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

  • Conclusion: Aside from the actual battle sequences themselves, Dragon Ball Origins 2 reeks with a lack of polish and feels aesthetically bland at times. Game Republic makes a valiant attempt at capturing the magic (?
