It's not the most complex strategy game out there, but it will appeal the Dragon Ball for sure. SDBHWM offers an amazing quantity of characters, references and attacks from the Dragon Ball universe. Fan service made right.

While there’s no physicality to your achievements in the terms of cards, it eliminates the need for arcade machines, and it even gives you a sense of accomplishment when competing against players from around the world. From a story that’s actually moderately enjoyable to the nostalgia created by adventuring into saga’s that include stuff from the adventures of the Time Patrol or even Super, there’s no doubt the game has a lot to offer.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission is an addictive card game that is absolutely full of content on all sides. Though it has a few minor problems that halt the pace of progression, the volume of ridiculous fanservice and deep mechanics make World Mission a treat for both card game fans and Dragon Ball fans.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission was an absolute delight, and initially I did have my doubts that I would enjoy an arcade card game. However, after playing it for many days and having my eyes glued to the television screen for hours, I admit that I was wrong to doubt. I was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable it was, despite the simple and repetitive plot in its Story Mode.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes has been a success in Japan for years and it's good that we have it now in Switch and PC in the same title. SDBH World Mission contains many hours of fun if you connect with its cards and you want a fan service.

Overall, I'd say I like World Mission as a fun game to pick up once in a while, watch DB characters beat each other up, and enjoy a Japanese arcade experience on the go. For longer play sessions, the game can sometimes dip into monotony, but as far as fanservice-powered Dragon Ball spin-offs go, you could do a lot worse.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes World Mission is split between a great card-based combat system and not-so-great everything else, but it's still fun for series fans.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission is the best version of the long-running card-battling series yet, boasting a raft of new adjustments, extra cards and fresh missions to keep you coming back for more. It's packed to the rafters with content, from a heavy-duty story mode to local and online battles, so if you're a fan of the series you're going to lap up this entry now it's finally arrived in the West. While it lacks the deeper tactical nuance of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions, it's still a fun and unapologetically Japanese arcade experience right there on your Switch.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes : World Mission is a truly Japanese Arcade gameplay experience that works pretty well on the Switch. Quite different from what Western Dragon Ball fans are used to playing and full of content and fan service, Bandai Namco Entertainment's game is one fans of Goku and friends should give a chance to.

In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World mission there a great amount of cards and collectibles. There's a simple story with a good and deep structure due to the stratified gameplay mechanics. Not only fanservice.

This is an obviously wacky product straight from Japanese arcades, and it’s not afraid to show it. That being said, it’s a content-filled blast full of strategy and over-the-top action.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission was a fun distraction that let me see what Gohan would look like if he could go Super Saiyan 4, but once the novelty wore off I went back to other, better looking, and better playing card games and Dragon Ball games.

With more than 1,000 cards to unlock, a campaign mode and online battling, Super Dragon Ball Heroes World Mission can be a hoot for fans itching to play a Dragon Ball-themed card game. At the same time, its more streamlined battle system combined with its use of arcade mechanics in a card game also makes its fun levels drop to less than 9,000 for folks looking for a more traditional TCG experience a laYu-Gi-Oh or Magic the Gathering.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes World Mission is not for everyone, but if you can push through the tutorial and put in a few hours, it's a content-rich, bonkers, colourful battler that fans of the franchise will enjoy. Just take note - its power level may vary for those that aren’t deeply rooted in the franchise.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission is a card collector's dream thanks to the astounding volume of cards and characters in the game. Unfortunately, bringing those cards into battle isn't nearly as satisfying as collecting them, as long-winded duels and shoddy enemy AI ruin the simple to learn yet hard to master nature of the card game. Fans of Dragon Ball will still have a good time here, as long as they're willing to put up with a lot of waiting and repetition.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission is a frustratingly monotonous, plodding, mindless game. Being skilled at hitting the A button at the right moment is more important than the cards you bring into a battle.
