This time I settled for a more rushdown-heavy style ala Jam Kuradoberi from Guilty Gears, further empathizing her skills as a martial artist and stirring away from gimmicks:

Is this better than the first attempt?
Its pretty decent.

Got the game two days ago. Finiashed the story mode, it was a drag but finally could unlock A21.

After some hours of practice I manage to pull of some super moves and combos that requiere a bit of perfect timing to pull off, that said, I'm still struggling to do super moves with just a single swing quarter circle with the d-pads, 4/5 times I need to perform the quarter circle twice for the supers to work, which more often than not mess up the timing of combos.

So far I couldn't play online because my internet has been vary shaky for the past two months but, fighting with my siblings more than make up for that.

Probably the most fun I've had with a DB game since Budokai Tenkaichi 3.

Score: 4.5/5

Content is NOT substance.
Bunch of characters doing stuff do NOT make an esemble cast.
Secondary characters are secondary, they do NOT deserve or are entitled to having more screen time.

Here's my Videl Character Reference Sheet.

Got it done on the afternoon of Saturday... converting it was the hard part.

So now here it is:

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I enjoyed the cutscenes of this game. :)
Android 21, Cell and Frieza had the best moments.
Sometimes i had the feeling that TFS worked on a few, haha.


I adore 21s true form.
Good 21 is just cute and innocent ... dont touch her i dare you! :x
Her sacrifice was damn sad though. (Here is a different take about here sacrifice ... its a really good fanfiction imo! https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12840344/1 ... fice-of-21)


The bad "versions" arent "evil" imo. (Super Warrior, Enemy Warrior, Android 21 Arc ... iam separating them because they all act a bit different)
They didnt torture people or try to blow up the planet without a reason so i would say that they are the least villainous antagonists.
If i had their powers things would be much worse. :twisted:



Cell was perhaps molested in hell ... thats why he roasts everyone to let off some frustration. ^^
Our Lord Frisbee also gets easily triggered and its just funny to watch.
And dont get me started with Goku ... he is simple minded as usual. :lol:

As much as I love this game, I really wish Arcade Mode was better. It's can get pretty competitive, which is cool. My main issue is the lack of a final boss and endings. I think Merged Zamasu would've been the perfect final boss.

Still have yet to really dive into Story Mode. Only completed 3%. Really don't have the desire to play it.

Still trying to rework the story mode for this game. I have to say they didn't do themselves any favors with this cast. I tried to minimally recreate the story post-Raditz and it's impossible without Base Goku and Vegeta, made me really scratch my head why they aren't in the game in some form. It also made me really long for Kid Gohan he would be great with a rage mechanic of some kind.

The above got me wondering how happy is everyone with the Base Roster? Taking into account context of course 23 characters available plus #21, release while the ToP was happening and knowing pre-Raditz material would be ignored.
Who everyone considers essential, what are the bias, etc...

Personally I need representation from all arcs. Which is why the inclusion of the antagonist from Super arcs was welcomed, Beerus double dipping as an essential current character.
I need the humans. They might not fight much currently(current non-withstanding) but they have a history and that should be respected. Besides they are pretty interesting for a fighting game.

With this said, I would remove one Goku and one Vegeta from the get go. For the base roster we don't need two. Besides I'm pretty disappointed with them with the exception of Vegeta Blue. I also find it criminal to miss the Genki Dama for example. I see a lot of bad choices when the developers tackled these characters.

I would trade Cell Games Gohan for Kid Gohan. The latter is much more important in my opinion. The other lasts for a second in the manga, killing Cell doesn't surpass everything he did during the Saiyan and Namek arcs. This would come with the plus of a more interesting move set.

The ones I would put in are Super Boo and a gag character. This is Dragon Ball why don't you have a gag character in your video game? Hercules or Great Saiyaman would be my choices. You could even add Videl to their characters.

Super Boo is a pretty important villain and one who has the absorption gimmick working for him. I'm surprised Arc System didn't use him, maybe they didn't have any ideas?

I rate the base roster 85 out of 100.

1. Super Buu is redundant and unnecessary because they gave Kid Buu his moves and references already.

2. They should have made SSB an in-game transformation like they did with Golden Frieza. That way we wouldn't have 2 of the same characters.

3. The only GT characters that would be good picks are Omega Shenron and Majuub.

4. Kid Goku is a better pick than Kid Gohan, due to having a more unique fighting style and abilities. Master Roshi would be perfect for the same reasons.

5. As far as female characters go, Towa and Kefla are the best choices possible. Towa could use her hax abilities from Xenoverse and DBHeros, as well as her staff and play like Litchi from Blazblue, and there's a lot you can do with Kefla's (as well as Caulifla and Kale's) moveset from the ToP.

6. [spoiler]A fourth story mode (taking place immediately after the third) that uses all playable characters (with some cameos) would be great.[/spoiler]

1- Which they shouldn't have done, both should have been in the game in my opinion. Pure Boo also doesn't have any absorption moves Super Boo's defining trait.

2- Yeah that's a good compromise.

3- Personally I wouldn't want any GT characters in the base game.

4- I said Kid Gohan in detriment of Cell Games Gohan not because we need a small character. Kid Goku is from pre-Raditz, which like I said in my post this game decided to ignore. Likewise with Master Roshi this game released during the ToP, Muten-Roshi participation until then didn't earn him a place because he's like Kid Goku a pre-Raditz character.
There's hope that he's DLC, my number one pick for sure.

5- Yup Kefla would be great but never in the base roster, I don't know much about Towa but she doesn't belong in the base roster.

They teased some stuff on the US Namco Bandai twitter so I'm assuming they're coming relatively soon.
If you're not here soon... GET ON!

Wow, Broly doesn't look that great in this game's artstyle. At a distance he's fine, but for the dynamic closeups during the supers, it looks like we're looking at a lump of modelling clay.

Also, I remember predicting his alt colour (skin option 2) would be either Paragus or Kale. Turns out, he has both.

Broly has the best theme in this game.
English is not my first language !

Wow, Broly looks boring. I feel like his attacks should have more visual impact to them.

that trailer was kinda ugh. The first thing this lame does in the trailer is say Kakarot and just made me remember why I don't like him. Voice doesn't sound too good when laughing and considering that's what he's doing for nearly the whole thing, it's kinda :| & sounds like he's some kind of weird pigeon or something. Should have switched to another actor. his model looks very blocky & almost looks like he's a mod. I do enjoy the outfit with the black pants though.
Zamasu is the best DB villain besides Freeza (and this is only the case because the current Super arc elevated Freeza to be that good).

They need to stop with these so called trailers. 20 seconds of which the first 5 is the intro isn't acceptable, specially with all the teasing on Bandai Namco twitter account. Ridiculous.

Broly seems good and bad. A lot of grabs which is great, the ultimate is pretty meh and not a single clothesline. Broly needs a clothesline. Finally is it just me or does that diving grab look bad? Besides being a copy of Nappa's one. They aren't corresponding to my expectations but this is just a 15 second trailer so..., yeah.
