Dragon Ball Xenoverse was released quite a while ago, but it definitely lived up to its hype, at least a little bit. From the very first moment, the game seems really interesting. A beautiful and wonderful idea with really nice new main villains. Demigra, Mira and Towa were really awesome to deal with, but I didn't like the idea of Dimps not allowing us to play as Demigra. The game features nice levels (though, they could be improved), nice visuals and it would really be a great indicator that we're going to have a bright and fun future with Dragon Ball games. Sadly, it's full of random bugs, bad battle combat and lack of a lot of characters and features that could and should have been included in the game. For that sake, it deserves only a 69 / 100.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a fun game and fans of Dragon Ball will enjoy it. The fight mechanics are simple to use. The story is majority good length. The character customization that is available is very simple and some can see it as a bad thing but I enjoyed it as it allowed me to fit into the db universe. The amount of available playable characters is quite lacking when compared with other Dragon Ball Z games such as Budokai tenkaichi 3. The only bad thing about the game is you can not play as the villians and have to pay dlc to unlock them which I think is a bloody stupid idea. The game is worth it only when its on a sale as it is fun and lengthy but a massive grind, overall I would only recommend it to fans of the series and games.
Do you like MMORPGs? Do you like fighting games? Do you LOVE Dragon Ball Z? If your answer to all of these questions is YES, this is the DBZ game for you. You make a custom character choosing from a variety of races with their own racial perks. There is an original story in which you team up with characters like Goku to fix the timeline. Xenoverse covers all of DBZ and even GT if you purchase the Season Pass. This game even has a social hub where you can hang out with friends, run parallel quests together, or engage in PvP. Unfortunately, what this game lacks is longevity. PQs are redundant and irritating due to the RNG, which makes it hard to get many sought after gear sets and items. PvP is imbalanced due to Z-souls and overpowered super abilities. There is also a serious cheating issue on the PC version due to players being able to alter their stats in the game files. If you don't care for the PvP and you just want to do the PQs one time through, you'll love this game. The original story, alone, is worth picking this game up. Most of the main roster of characters are also available to play as, though it's not as large as previous DBZ game rosters. I'd highly recommend this game, although DBXV2 is coming out in a few months and likely will improve upon this game in virtually every way.
As a single player kind of gamer I can't say I enjoyed Xenoverse a lot. It is a good game, but all of its mean features are focused on multiplayer in some kind of mixture of an MMORPG and a fighting game. Having that in mind, Xenoverse is not a big step from the classic Budokai Tenkaichi fighting games of the Dragon Ball series. Creating your own character is interesting, but you will soon miss playing with the old Dragon Ball characters. Xenoverse's structure is weird, and it features an interactive menu kind of integrated in the MMORPG world. There is a chance that you miss the standard menu structure since it is very confusing. I didn't play Dragon Ball Xenoverse much and I just wnt through the storyline. I kind of enjoyed it but I can't say I had a blast with it.
It's refreshing to play a Dragon Ball game like this, which has it's own unique story rather than a re-tell of the original Dragon Ball Z story. You create your own character, the hero who with trunks saves the endangered timeline of DBZ. The Fighting system is as fun as other DBZ games, but the AI of your partners (when the battle isn't 1x1) isn't good at all, it's hard doing missions that require saving a partner when they rush into the death themselves. Another downside is TokiToki town, going from main missoin to a side-quest or vice-versa feels like an unneeded chore. That said I really recommend this game to all DBZ fans, as it's story alone makes up for it's downsides.
