It’s fantastic to see that Dragon Ball FighterZ transitions as well as it does to the most versatile games console on the planet. The game looks and plays great on the portable home console and stands as one of the best and most faithful anime licensed titles on the market.

Dragonball FighterZ is an amazing fighting game which you will play for many hours. The new way of fighting only helps getting the Dragon Ball games to new heights. The story is a bit shallow and the starting roster is small, but as a whole Dragonball FighterZ has great gameplay value and is definitely worth getting for your Switch.

FighterZ has a lot of shining moments, and while there are some minor issues, the gameplay and overall presentation easily make up for it.

The best way to summarize DBFZ is that it is Dragon Ball in its purest form. The game is ridiculous and odd, but filled with decades of lore that fits right in with its faithful graphics. DBFZ's challenge and accessibility are only matched by its commitment to a proper adaptation that will appeal to both the oldest and newest of fans. The beginning hours of the story is where the game's biggest flaws can be found, which ultimately hurt the game's chances of keeping players hooked. DBFZ has so much beneath this thin surface though, so players who are turned off upon their first hour with the game should really give it another go. The story will always be an annoyance, but this is a small gripe in a game filled to the brim with exceptional content. DBFZ is a Super Saiyan experience and essential for anyone who has memories from the anime—present or past. Those who are not fans will still find a fantastic game, but a bit of research and patience may be needed to fully grasp what is, without a doubt, the greatest Dragon Ball game ever released.

With "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Bandai Namco & Arc System Works deliver a fabulous Beat'em Up, which is in no way inferior to its predecessors and will surely rank high in its genre. In addition to a well-balanced mixture of fighting and narrative sequences, the sophisticated game mechanics and the corresponding visuals score particularly well. Thanks to accessible controls, newcomers also have the opportunity to fully enjoy the whole variety of combos and special attacks. Embedded in a nice basic story, "Dragon Ball FighterZ" proves to be an entertaining beating game, which gives soloists as well as gamblers many hours of fun.
