Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Game Review

Kakarot

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is a 3D Anime Fighting RPG game. This game follows the events of Dragon Ball Z, with some side missions and battles. When this game was still in development the creators wanted to call it “Project Z” but changed their minds. The main character you play as is Goku, but you sometimes play as Gohan, Piccolo, Vegeta, and Future Trunks.

 

The graphics of this game are very good, and I really liked playing the game with these graphics. This game can take a lot from your computer so you may need a strong computer.

 

The story of this game isn’t unique at all, it’s just Dragon Ball Z but as a game. There are a few details that aren’t pointed out in the original anime, which makes the game more enjoyable. One detail is why doesn’t Gohan’s and Vegeta’s tails grow back. In a side mission in the game, it is revealed that a Saiyan’s body doesn’t grow back a tail if the Saiyan is stronger than a great ape.

 

The mechanics of this game are too simple for many of us fighting games fans, to do a melee attack you press the B button on an Xbox controller, the Circle button on a PlayStation controller, and on keyboard and mouse, you press the left mouse button. And to do a ki attack, you press X on an Xbox controller, the Square button on a PlayStation controller, and right-click on mouse and keyboard.

 

There are currently 2 dlcs for the game, both of which are stories from Dragon Ball Super. The first DLC is until Goku went Super Saiyan God and fought Beerus, and the second one is when he fought Golden Frieza.

 

When I played the game it was very fun, I liked the battles and all the missions in this game, except finding items missions, those are shit. Playing this game really made me like Dragon Ball and I actually got into Dragon Ball through the games and played the games before watching the anime. I really liked that it’s just Dragon Ball Z’s story and not something complicated like Xenoverse’s story (sorry Alex, but I need to finish it first). In this game you can use the dlcs to train or grind for levels, every fight can be a little challenging, but it doesn’t really get that hard until the cell saga. I actually replayed the game 3 times, and it was only released this year!

 

I loved playing the main mission and really liked how you can choose when to go Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, and all other transformations, but my favorite was the Golden Frieza DLC, in which you play in the SSGSS transformation.

 

Overall, I think this game is very good and think that everyone should play it, whether you’re a Dragon Ball fan or not.
