So one user's snarky comment on me not buying Kakarot or any other franchise game: ''But you will!'' came to fruition.
Snatched Kakarot on Black Friday, as the Ultimate wasn't for rudiculous 150 dollars on PS Store but with a 70% discount...
Actually, the game plays better than Xenoverse 2, looks better, even tough the models look awkward sometimes and are less detailed, but overall, the Story is nicely done so far, as I am in the middle of Android saga. Just missed a few bits and pieces from the stories or was expecting them to be animated somehow... and there is lot of weird faux censorship, like seeing Goku blasted trough and having hole in the chest, but not seeing 17 destroying Gero or Vegeta blasted by Krillin... but that doesn't matter. Also, SSJ and other character's transformations should have been fully animated, definitely in cutscenes, as the game doesn't look so bad, but this really cheapens it, when compare to the nice animation of SSJ Goku in Opening... which is probably the only properly done animation in the game.
What I like aside from nostalgia... is another nostalgia, the game gives me strong DBO/MMO vibes. So the quests are repetitive, but somehow rewarding for the EXP and items, so you are like let's do the last one, another, another and 4 hours are away...
Kakarot is nothing outstanding and left a lot to be desired, so the game would be great DB ride for fans, but it's not a total disaster and as I said, the fights are less complicated but are more fun and work better than in Xenoverse 2
Will have my fun with the game, try to do Platinum, but not much replayability as I don't see myself spending another 40+ hours on it.
Also, love the Kikuchi score in it and think that it should have been more extensive and not just few tracks only with repetitive VGM in the mix.
