After the first Raging Blast, people came up with a list of complaints. Nothing new, everyone finds the glitches or perceived unfair situations that appear in the game, and they want them gone. There was a glitchy camera, there was the Techniques not looking as dynamic as they used to, there was the ability to easily spam moves and cheap teleportation tricks. All fair criticisms.

Well good news: They're all gone.

The camera angles work great. No more of the constant need to try to frantically reset the camera, because the thing adjusts itself and the levels have been redesigned in such a way as to reduce the odds of it happening. The techniques are splendid, and have a nice explosion effect upon impact, and the teleportation moves like Wild Sense appear to be gone for the most part.

As for the scenery: beautiful and more destructible than ever. More room to move, you can slam your opponent through mounds of ice, pillars of stone, and even slamming them into the ground leaves a nice little impact crater.

The recovery is more impressive than ever. Now when you're being sent flying, a perfect recovery will allow you to flip over and slide back on your feet, allowing you to strike back first, or in the air, you simply flip around and push back against momentum. And deflecting a Super Technique is highly impressive, as you don't just slap away the blast, but watch it explode behind you in all its splendor.

As for the basic fight controls, they're more varied and unique, making it feel less like a button masher. Character attributes also come into play more here: Speed characters will be fast, Strength characters stronger than average. The stats mean a lot more this time around, but it still maintains the fair balance.

And finally, the techniques themselves: Beautiful. When they impact, they kick up a dust cloud just like in the series, and they most closely resemble the series now too.

The game is nothing short of amazing and incredibly improved. Highly recommend.

Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 is a good game in my mind. It is a 3d game not 2, witch is good. they have brought in the same combat controls as some of the older games like the tenkaichis and sutch with a few changes. This is one of the best parts of the game as well. This makes it fun to play for extended periods of time. The roster of characters is also larger than in the original. There is however one major problem, the game doesnt have all of the character it needs. they are missing ones like Harudigon (pardon spelling) and first form Janemba. this is somewhat of a problem. They have also only introduced one new character. All around its a good game, It would just be a better game with all the characters.
