Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was released in 2016 by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game is very similar with the first Dragon Ball Xenoverse and the game managed to sell over 1.4 million copies worldwide. I have 46 hours in this game and i finished almost everything and unlocked almost everything , i like this game and in this article i'm going to talk about it , there are also a few things i don't like and i will mention that in the review.
StoryThe story starts after you make your character and pick your race , you are a time traveler and you have to make sure that no one changes the time. You meet Elder Kai and the Supreme Kai of Time , they send you on your first mission , after a short training you help Goku beat Raditz and comeback to your time. Along the way you learn about Towa and Mira , two aliens which keep messing with time , they give a strange dark power to fighters , this power boosts their strength but they lose control. This whole thing keeps going , they mess with the time , you fix it , and you get stronger and stronger . Eventually you fight Mira , Towa , his partner realizes the mistake she did , she made Towa to powerful , she tries to stop him but Mira absorbs her and fights the player , Goku truns Super Saiyan Blue and the fight starts. You beat Mira and the universe is safe.
GameplayIn my opinion the game is much easier to play with a controller than a keyboard, there are tons of moves and combos which are much easier on the controller than keyboard.I will start with the race from the character creation.
Race: Each race has a special ability , for example if you pick saiyajin( A form of humans/monkey warriors from another planet) you can learn a transformation called Super Saiyajin , this transformation gives you more dmg on normal punches.
Attributes: In this game when you level up you have to place points in one of the six attributes:
-Health= the more heath you have the more damage you can take.
-Ki= some skills need a certain amount of ki , you need it to use blasts.
-Stamina=stamina is used for escape moves , vanish(teleport behind the enemy) , stamina is influenced by the race and gender of the character .
-Basic Attack= when you attack using the normal punch.
-Strike Supers= use a moderate amount of ki , include:blasts and punches.
-Ki Blast Supers =use a big amount of ki and take a bit of time to shot.
Ki Blast Supers/Strike Supers: In order to learn more skills you can either buy them from the shop or earn the in missions , there are tons of attacks and moves. You can also learn them from the main city , speaking with characters ,they will teach you to use it and then you have to fight them using that attack.
Clothes: Clothes play a huge role in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 , clothes can either increase an attribute up to 5 points or lower it. If you crate a QQBang the clothes are ignored and are only displayed for design not stats.
Dragon Balls: There are a few missions in which you can search for dragon ball , if you find all of them you can make a wish , you can ask for money , levels , new attacks , clothes , food , etc.
End Game Transformation: You can unlock the transformation called Super Saiyajin Blue , in order to do that you need to max the friendship level with Vegeta and Whis , to do that you need to play fights together.
I also want to mention the fact that this game is online coop but not on the main story , you can do parallel quests with your friends and you don't have to pick your characters , you can pick from all the game's characters . You can also do PVP with other players.
