Review: Dragonball Xenoverse Steam Version

A close look on Dragonball Xenoverse’s Steam port may be overdue at this point considering that the game has been released for a couple of weeks now, but we wanted to keep mum until the dust has settled because PC releases (these days) seem to be plagued with launch day hitches that make games look worse than they really are. After several weeks of playtime and a couple of patches, it seems like Dimps has already had enough time to iron out launch day kinks, so it’s fair game.

First Things First: Gameplay and Content

There’s already a ton of in-depth and well-written reviews about the gameplay and content of Dragonball Xenoverse all over the Internet, particularly since the PC version isn’t different from the console versions (which has been around for months now.) but just to get things out of the way: Dragon Ball Xenoverse is basically another iteration of the 3rd person arena fighting game that started with the Budokai Tenkaichi games, with an MMORPG-lite story mode serving as the framework. People familiar with the short-lived Dragonball Online MMO will be familiar with the game, as it reuses content (story and art assets) from the MMO, including two of the 3 main villains, Towa and Mira.

It’s not like the story would be such an important aspect when it comes to a fighting game (especially one based on DBZ,) but the story goes that the two main villains have been traveling through key points in Dragonball’s timeline and changing things, such as boosting Frieza’s power levels so that he ends up killing Goku or preventing mirai Trunks from traveling back in time. So another version of Trunks from the future who is working with the Supreme Kai of Time gathers the dragon balls and wishes for a hero that will help them travel through time and correct the changes.
