Jamie Briggs, Analog Addiction. "One of Dragon Ball Xenoverse’s strongest qualities is how it is able to acknowledge these iconic storylines with excellent fan service, but also turn them on their head to provide an interesting spin for hardcore fans. History is being changed, someone is travelling through time and altering the outcome of iconic battles in the Dragon Ball timeline. What would happen if Raditz had escaped Piccolo’s Special Beam Cannon, killing Goku and keeping his Saiyan brother alive? Interesting outcomes like this are constantly showcased throughout the narrative. Though this is excellent for any hardcore Dragon Ball fan, Xenoverse doesn’t explain much of the events going on. If you haven’t experienced these stories at least once before, you may find it easy to simply have no clue what is going on. Xenoverse expects you to know what happened in these iconic moments, with that it doesn’t bother explaining, rather it provides a cliff notes version of what actually happened. As a big Dragon Ball fan I have no qualm with focusing on the new story being told, but new fans be warned – you may be lost very quickly."
