Dragon Ball FighterZ Launch and Android 21 Trailers Drop

Dragon Ball FighterZ Has Loot Boxes

When we reviewed Guilty Gear Xrd back in 2016 we described it as the best-looking fighting game ever made, and the most successful attempt yet to recreate anime style visuals in a video game.

Editors' Note: This review does not yet have a rating because we are waiting to evaluate online play.

Concepts unique to Dragon Ball include the ability to manually charge your super meter with a "Ki charge", which leaves you vulnerable to attack while you do so.

There have been plenty of Dragon Ball games before, but never one that looked and played as well as this impressive new fighter. For a complete list of all Super Move attacks belonging to various characters in the game, head over to our Dragon Ball FighterZ Special Moves guide.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is described on its own website as the vehicle to bring classic 2D Dragon Ball Anime to current generation consoles - something it achieves with a flourish.

Without delving into the minute details of each and every attack and the counter systems available to you, Dragon Ball FighterZ utilises auto combos to seamlessly string attacks together.

Tagging in other team members helps to bring some variety, but after a time you might find yourself doing so with intentionally weaker characters to spice up certain battles.


"FighterZ is complex and distinct enough to be enjoyed by fighting game competitors, but there's no question that it's been created to tap into the hearts of Dragon Ball's most dedicated fans, and no doubt those same qualities will win people over who've never given the series a chance".

If you're expecting Dragon Ball FighterZ to have a sweeping cinematic story mode in the vein of Injustice 2 and Tekken 7, you might be disappointed.

But while the graphics and fan service are the game's most obvious selling points what makes it of interest to all gamers is that this is a genuinely great fighting game. We should note that the "change character" option listed above is different from the assist moves, and allows you to change the character you're now playing as, to one who's waiting on the sidelines.

The plot - which involves you, the player, somehow inhabiting the bodies of various Dragon Ball characters - is fairly ridiculous, and the static conversation scenes in between fights aren't exactly engrossing.

Dragon Ball FighterZ launches this week in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Alongside two-player offline multiplayer brawls and six-player online face-offs, there are also eight-player lobbies for spectators to watch fights and huge online tournaments to take part in.

As a new gateway into the fun world of Dragon Ball, FighterZ does a fantastic job putting the universe's heroes and villains at your fingertips.
