"Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a huge step for Dragon Ball games, but one that should have been taken years ago. Though leagues ahead of its recent predecessors, nothing here is as good as it could and should be. A jack of many trades and a master of none; DBX innovates dramatically within the series, while lacking quality in almost all regards. A great an interesting narrative concept is delivered only in a mediocre way, combat controls and mechanics are cleverly constructed but poorly fleshed out, and RPG systems fit, but fail to motivate or provide gradual development. I’m sure we’ll see a sequel soon, and I sincerely hope to see my concerns addressed. Xenoverse is full of exceptional ideas, but hollow in its execution.If you’re a fan of DBZ and you’re up for a grind, give it a shot. If not, I wouldn’t recommend it."
