Dragon Ball Raging Blast
Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
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 for Dragon Ball: Raging Blast.
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. You need to be a fan of the series to be able to get all the achievements.
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? Well maybe. The characters all feel the same after a while and the combat (while complex on the surface) does not end up being particularly deep in the end.
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. The game also marks the return of the Tenkaichi formula seen in previous iterations of the series to the HD front for the first time.
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.
Excerpt: The Dragon Ball range of fighting games has been going on for donkeys’ years. Practically every console in the past two or three generations has been littered with Dragon Ball games. And for good reason! The premise of the show is spot on for a fighting game, and the popularity of the series means that the games are a surefire moneymaker.
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. It’s disappointing to see this is the result and I think I just about reached my end with Dragonball games. The core gameplay is still fairly deep and rewarding, and the visual of the battles is truly amazing.
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.
