Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Review

Just Push Start - Tue, 10/25/2016 - 14:00
Dragon Ball has evolved from a simple story loosely based off Journey to the perfect example of a Shonen series. In that time the series has been adapted to a number of different mediums, including video games. Using the world of Dragon Ball to make an online action game worked very well for Xenoverse. Now that Dragon Ball Super is continuing the adventure, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 hopes to tap the original magic and add in the latest adventures. The only question is whether the sequel will live up to the original or is it a quick rerelease to get more money? Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 uses the canon time travel elements to create an organization designed to fix anomalies in the past. This isn’t the first adventure to use the Time Patrol, nor is the basic idea of the Time Patrol original, but it is still a decent way to justify reliving your favorite moments in the series. As you might’ve guessed, since Xenoverse 2 is expanding on the original game, all the best moments and more are included. It makes for a thrilling revisit, along with a couple of fun inside jokes. Like one of the tutorial missions teaches you how to revive using Krillin as an example and you later beat up Yamcha and Tien. These fun little callbacks to how the community, at least in the West, feel about the game makes an otherwise terrible tutorial more bearable. The issue with the tutorial is that it’s very long for a fairly straightforward system. With the combat system involving two buttons to attack like Dynasty Warriors, another for beam attacks, a jump/dodge button and a few more for special attacks and flying, you spend about 10 or so minutes doing something that shouldn’t take more than two. This is a terrible way to start the game and sadly, it doesn’t get much better from there.
