In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, players take on the role a Time Patroller moving fighting to protect the history of the popular animated series. Characters can roam freely around the game's central hub city, but the real action takes place in the battle arenas, where characters face off in the super-powered martial arts action Dragon Ball fans have come to expect. Characters from the show offer new battle techniques as well as challenging opponents. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has a complex character creation system with plenty of options for character customization. As in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 1, combat can be equally complex to get the hang of, although players who are familiar with other 3-D fighters will quickly grasp the importance of spacing, combo execution and quick reaction. The graphics aren't groundbreaking, but they do effectively capture the style and characters of the show. Although new powers and characters add variety, the many arena battles that take up most of the game can lead to a feeling of repetitive grind for people who aren't thoroughly committed to them. If you're a fan of the series, you'll enjoy seeing and battling your favorite characters in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Unlocking and learning new powers to create the fighter you want also adds long-term interest to this action-heavy game.
