Summary: If you’re not a hardcore fan (and I mean a “troo kvlt” level fan) of the
series, you’re probably better off passing on
Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2.
Even though I’m a fan of the series, the game was too much for me.
Pros: A multiplicity of characters to choose from., Character designs look great and are true to the series, as do the backgrounds.
Cons: No real cutscenes or animations., Not even the most hardcore of fans will likely play through the entire game with each character in order to unlock everything. Posting cheat codes, anyone?, Easy to get lost in huge environments, making tracking opponents difficult.
Repetitive fighting; only for the most devoted fans.

Summary: Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 is the sequel to last year’s high-flying, fast-hitting, and intense versus battles series. Dragon Ball Z fans can rest assured that the destructible environment, and character trademark attacks and transformations will be true to the series.
Summary: I remember a period of about two months, back in 7th grade, when Dragon Ball Z was about the greatest thing I’d ever seen. I’d rush home from school to catch each episode on Toonami, get disappointed that most of it was grunting and idle boasts, and then get ready for tomorrow’s episode when the...
Summary: On the easier levels,
feels like a game that younger kids can enjoy for simplicity, and older fans can enjoy for the fighting. However, after the first few fights in each level, the AI’s unforgiving nature kicks in, turning off anyone from the game except for diehard fans.
