Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot (PS4)
There are so many amazing things about this game, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot (PS4) delivers a unique experience. We here at the club are a big fan of it! It doesn’t quite make it to the top of our own personal lists, but it is up there. Dragon Ball Super was a storming success, which has led to a couple of games and a movie. Now on the back of that success we have a brand new DBZ game. And for all Dragon Ball fans there is more to come from the franchise over the horizon!
This game like the ones before follow the original DBZ story arcs, from Raditz and onwards. These games on the current generation of consoles look visually spectacular. Just simply flying around with your character or on the nimbus is insta-worthy. Another thing we love about this game is the 2.5D animation, seen in Dragon Ball FighterZ. It gives life to the characters and they look and feel like their anime counterparts. Much better than the full 3D versions of the characters from previous generations.
Story & Gameplay
This game doesn’t force or burden you with all the extra filler bits that plagued some of the previous games. You can go through all the story arcs in a few hours if you like! The extra bits are optional but some of them are quite worth your time and enjoyable. But it is completely up to you. They have switched the combat system again slightly to make it feel like the anime, and they did a decent job.
The fights can feel frustrating at times, especially when you come up against the bosses. But that does make it feel that much more like the fighting you see in the anime. We here at the club highly recommend you check it out! Click on the links to find out more.
