Excerpt: Dragon Ball: Raging Blast, the newest installment of the Dragon Ball franchise, is a fighting game that focuses on character boosts and environment interactions. Fans of the franchise will probably purchase this out of loyalty, but Namco will be hard pressed to find others willing to fork out money...
Conclusion: If you are a DBZ fan I would definitely recommend getting this game. If you are unsure then rent it. You should have extreme fun playing this game. Although if you arent a fan of DBZ and just want to play it for the achievements then I wouldnt recommend it.
Conclusion: something that held the promise beyond the spiky blonde hair. Stupid box art. The opening cinematics are well done. You can tell the game has polish. The modes are plenty and the more you dig, the more you’ll find. With seventy characters to uncover and use, you’re sure not to get bored right?
Excerpt: After the letdown that Burst Limit, the first high-def age Dragon Ball game turned out to be, the fans of the series eagerly awaited the new installment called Dragon Ball: Raging Blast, eagerly anticipating if it will be vindication.
Summary: Dragon Ball: Raging Blast is the first video game in the Budokai Tenkaichi series to come to PS3/X360 and features stunning HD graphics and audio, destructible environments and enhanced character features, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast takes players far beyond the realms of the original anime series.
Summary: Overall, this game does have a few problems, and a handful of them are more than just minor ones, but they do not inhibit your ability to enjoy the game. As a Dragonball fan myself, I’ve always wanted a Budokai Tenkaichi series on the now current gen systems.
Pros: Great character models and graphics, online play is solid and lag free.
Cons: Amount of characters compared to previous Tenkaichi games, environments look bland & only a few.
Summary: Dragon Ball: Raging Blast is the latest in a long, long series of games that try to take the superpowered fighting action of the popular anime series and adapt it into a compelling fighting game. The results here prove to be mixed.
Pros: Visuals capture the look and feel of the series, Accessible controls, Rich assortment of stories and modes
Cons: Fighting system lacks depth and nuance, Characters all feel the same, Camera can easily lose sight of your opponent, Online is plagued by spoilsport disconnections
Conclusion: Raging Blast has a lot going for it with 70 playable characters, lots of modes, online play, and a nice presentation. The camera and controls remain the most concerning part of the package, but for any average Dragon Ball or avid fighting fan, it's well worth a look.
