The game's great finally a game that can allow a 2 on 2 or 4 on 4 match. There's only one problem. No super sayan 4!!!!!!!!

"I'm goku and I'm a super saiyan" LOL. '80s advertisements welcome back. 

Now that I'm done laughing I'll leave the same type of comments I always leave. The graphics style needs to change. Experiment with a more realistic look. The glow and powers up look weak and not at all dynamic. I gave a suggestion years ago to add a character creator. I was glad they listened but they did it the lazy way with presets instead of the smackdown games way. That should change too. Last but not least. Use the games to start new storylines and villains. Some in between dbz sagas. I'd even love little stories where say Yamcha, Tien or Krillin are the heroes. 

There is so much more that can be done with the franchise but no real creativity nor imagination is going into these games. That's only my opinion of course. If others love this then fine but I want a lot more now.

If this is anything like Ultimate Tenkaichi then you can count me out. That one was complete garbage. No combos or anything. Now if it's like Budokai 2: Tenkaichi, then I might give it a try.

I liked the budokai series and all but the side to side fighting was just not true to any real dbz fan that dreamed of a game to freely fly around and burst through a destructible environment. Tenkaichi brought us that play in a pretty solid game. Tenkaichi with a little co play up to 4 people seems great if they get the fluidity right. I just hope they do.... But one problem I have with all the DBZ games is Why TF are you not including GT. GT characters and super saiyan 4 Goku/Vegeta/Gogeta was F'n Epic and so was Baby Vegeta (my favorite character) tied with Majin Vegeta. ADD GT!!!!!!!!!

Screw this!  the best DBZ game for me is Budokai 3. Absolutely superb, i wanted this game so much back when it was released but didn't have the proper console... Now that it's in HD on xbox i play it like a maniac!

I laid out a nice comment but GS deleted it. In summary, anyone looking for a true DBZ fans experience should try DBZ Raging Blast 2. It may not be for you but chances are its better than anything else out there. This game looks like a rehash kinda disappointing. The motion tweening at 1:12 didn't look too hot. I'm not pleased with the giant boss battles because besides the giant monkey saiyans its already deterring from the traditional saga in a completely unnecessary way that doesn't support a realistic game environment. I hope its good but I am skeptical it will be. Reading about it made it seem as if it was "an original DBZ experience by [creator] Akira Toriyama and in reality it looks like a re-hash that has been made marketable and for the new generation of DBZ fans and not the true Ultimate Battle 22 old school era of fans that have been investing in the franchise from the beginning. Overall looks disappointing with some potential mediocre online multiplayer action.

cooolio

The 4v4 fights actually seem interesting.  I should be ashamed.

It actually looks decent. But no matter how many innovative new features, the core gameplay mechanics need to be solid.

Finally a true spiritual successor to Budokai Tenkaichi 3, man this game just boosted up my most wanted list for 2014, no.1 being Dark Souls 2. My PSN ID is ramen45, hit me up!

Well I think this may actually be  worth pre ordering!!! SHOW THEM YOUR SUPPORT IF YOU WANT MORE DRAGON BALL GAMES !!!

Crap, I wish they'd put this on the PC as well! Even the latest Naruto game is already on the PC! PC gamers can use controllers anyway, and personally, I play fighting games on the PC without a controller. Yeah, some people like me have already gotten so accustomed to the keyboard that we can use it efficiently even in fighting fast paced fighting games lol!


Sigh, I really wish they'd release new Dragonball games on the PC.

its another one of those one button attack fighting games like the naruto shippuden ninja storm ones. they look nice, but the gameplay is really boring. they should implement the budokai 3 fighting system into these new dbz games to put a little more control and skill into the games. then i would buy them. but one button sucks.

I would love to play this with the Motion controls that were in Tenkaichi 3.  Those were done almost perfectly.  Motion+ with this would be sooooo epic.

I don't even know if I would consider this to be a fighting game.

.....And 50 years later on next gen consoles of that time there will be a narrator on a new DBZ game trailer saying "This Dragon Ball Z is what the world has been waiting for!!!!"

@Blaiyan well i think graphics should look more like the anime itself the realistic looks can destroy the pleasure and nostalgia of gameplay the more it look like from the series in graphics way the more its nice to play in my opinion...with all other things i could agree.. it surely be very good if the battle stage be a lot bigger like you can run a lot far away in another city and hide somewhere when your oponent begin to destroy all the stuff until he finds you or in some more interesting ways...or you can fight on the clouds and fall a very long distance until you can just avoid the falling to the ground somethow...well now i talk like about battlefield but even then no battlefield 4 or 3 was i think in that way...the game needs more fun to play especialy that is important  from my wiew is the ability to use the environment in a lot more functions not just destroy everything and fight in burning earth...or just it can be a lot bigger if it is imposible to do something more interesting...i think the developers is a little tired of dbz because all the games after ps2 became practicaly the same...maybe for the insipation they should change a little of the employees with some smart dbz fans and people who have some interesting thoghts...

@OGKNav yup since naruto has a goku one and they are from bandai it makes sense

@zerantoss That's exactly what I was thinking. Made me not even second guess that this shit was gonna be great. Day 1 buy thanks to the narrator for me lmao

@kyle004 How about they make dragon ball games that people want because there is a demand for good dragon ball games. Why take away the influence of consumers for false loyalty that may produce more weak games because THEY ARE SELLING.

@Adenosine dude OMG your just like me, i play beat-em-ups on the PC with Keyboard, its like having your own arcade controller lol. so much better than using a xbox pad on PC i think.

@Xenro4 @Acerv12340 Oh please. The Tenkaichi format is ALWAYS one button for melee and one for energy. Let's not try to fool ourselves.

ZEeduardo94

@chipwithdip @Xenro4 @Acerv12340 The Ultimate Tenkaichi had one-button style fighting, but this one really seems to be like the old tenkaichi games in the PS2 era, with really cool fighting mechanics, even though it's not  a more traditional style like in Budokai 3 (best Dragon Ball Z game in my opinion too man) it seems to be really fun, and hey keep your hopes up about this one kid, it's good to do that once in a while
