Dragon Ball Z
Completing a review for Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 has been quite a challenge. It arrived unexpectedly 2 days after Fallout: New Vegas and the same day as Fable 3 which are 2 of my most anticipated games of the year. Not only that but my initial introduction to the game was very unimpressive and I actually had to force myself to insert the disc and fire it up for a second go. I’m glad I persevered as my subsequent attempts at the game were a vast improvement but I found the game ultimately unfulfilling.
The reason I volunteered to play DB: RB2 is that I’m a closet Dragon Ball Z fan from way back and the chance to play the characters I loved watching seemed too good an opportunity to pass up. I’m pleased to report that from that perspective this game is great. I thoroughly enjoyed my first Kamehameha and being able to turn into a Super Saiyan. I grinned my head off as I competed in the World Tournament and the Cell Games. Unfortunately after that I couldn’t find anything particularly inspiring to do so I turned the game off and went and made a coffee… And that’s the downfall of this game, apart from the fact its Dragon Ball Z and you get to re-enact your favourite fights with your favourite characters (both good and evil) it’s fairly poor.
