Well lets start with what they got right. The story presentation and the way the story interacts with the fights, the graphics and powers are all awesome. But that is it, the fighting is terrible in fact it can't even be called fighting, every single battle is exactly the same, you can melee close or shoot from far away. the fighting is all based on a fifty fifty two button system during combos that determines who will receive the damage. You might think this review is coming from someone who doesn't like the dragonball series, but I have played every game through and enjoyed them all, but there is no fun here after only a few matches I was completely bored and there really is no fighting strategy to be had here. It i s worth trying if you want but I could not endure it long enough to even make it very far in story mode. It needs variety and a real fighting system other wise the graphic and presentation are great.

This game however is abysmal. The only real selling point is the "Hero Mode," wherein you can make your own character. By which I mean a clone of Goku with slightly askew hair and lackluster abilities. For how much content there actually is in the hero mode, they might as well have not included it and just made the game better as a whole.
If you're looking for a fighting game, avoid this. There is nearly no fighting what-so-ever. Every battle boils down to several QTEs that have a 50/50 (literally, there is a 50% chance you will fail) shot at working.
Game play seemed like it needed more moves. Extremly fun and long too beat completely. Super moves are extremly easy to do. The really thing that sucked were the cut scenes where you have too button smash. Some just seemed like I was about to break the controler if I went any faster. Ala in all it deserves a nine, worth buying.
