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. I‘m sorry, Spike, I just don’t have the drive or sufficient motivation to complete this entire, frustrating, often overly difficult game with each and every character provided (of which there are many) in order to unlock all items, characters, and...
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.
Excerpt: What’s a lonely Bachelor Vampire to do? You wake up one evening in a spooky (probably) Transalvanian Demon World, only to find your beautiful Blonde bombshell of a Princess has been (probably) kidnapped by some demonic creature! Well, like most besuited and caped Nosferatian creatures, you’d want to kick their asses and get her back… (probably) [Okay, enough of that! – Ed] So begins Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess (MPSMP).
Repetitive fighting; only for the most devoted fans.

Summary: Parents need to know that Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast 2 is a fighting game based on Dragon Ball Z TV series that features over-the-top fight scenes. The game features no central storyline; instead, in Galaxy Mode (the title's main play mode), characters are tasked with playing through a series of missions that really just serve as opportunities for the gamer to test his skills in different combat scenarios. There's minimal blood involved.
Conclusion: Bien qu'une palette de 90 personnages sont à débloquer dans ce Dragon Ball Raging Blast 2 , beaucoup d'entre-eux sont relativement faibles, ne faisant ainsi pas vraiment le poids contre les saiyens par exemple. Et pourtant, il est vraiment appréciable de pouvoir enfin jouer avec des personnages secondaires tels que Tarble (le frère de Vegeta), Neizu, Sauzer et Dore (hommes de main de Freezer), Nail (un combattant Namek) ou encore Hatchyak.
Pros: 90 personnages, Bonne durée de vie, Combats toujours très pêchus, L'OAV inédit
Cons: Pas de réelle évolution de gameplay, Le scénario passe à la trappe au profit d'un mode peu intéressant, Absence des thèmes sonores originaux, Réalisation graphique perfectible
Conclusion: the animation table, losing none of the personality and style of Akira Toriyama’s original character designs. The backgrounds and playing fields are equally true to form, almost giving a sense that you’re controlling the characters in custom made cartoon episodes under your direction. While fidelity to the source material can’t be argued, the visual quality is slightly hampered by the 360’s graphics hardware.
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: 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. With so many other fighter choices out there, I can’t recommend this one to anyone except those looking for a bit more
