It’s been a month since Dragon Ball Xenoverse officially released in February 2015 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One consoles and on PC. In my spare time I have been getting to know the game and trying to find out just how good it is.
A new story is born was part of what Bandai Namco promised with Dragonball Xenoverse. This was definitely much-needed especially it’s the first time the Dragon Ball video game franchise will be on current gen platforms, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The story will have you travelling through time trying to keep the history that you know about Dragon Ball intact. The story is pretty good with some interesting twists in time travelling and fighting against it changing. They’re a few questionable parts in the presentation and narration, but, after all, that’s part of what makes Dragon Ball.
Character creation is back and improved. This third entry of customization provides race and gender choices. The customization doesn’t stop there as heads, builds, voices, clothing are ripe for your tinkering. I still think it could be improved even further. The worst part of all of this is that they’re not any way to preview items you wear before buying them.
The gameplay is average at best. Sometimes combo and move response time seems sort of delayed. This makes you feel vulnerable and not in control of your own faith at times. The AI and some of the missions are a pain due to the NPCs dying a majority of the time causing you to fail. Where the gameplay excels is when mixing it up with friends in co-op parallel missions are going one on one versus each other. If you don’t have a friend locally, you can go online.
