DBZ Infinite World had a shot at doing minigames and...weird side content. Back then it was panned, but at least the combat system was a more refined Budokai 3. IW was strange, but it had the best fighting mechanics of all the Dimps games.
I honestly think the IW is the ONLY DB game that launched on a home console from the PS1 era through now that I never played (I wish I hadn't played all the PS1 ones...they were terrible)

the mini games suck but the fighting system and capsule system are redone. it's an awesome game, it got shit on by reviews because it was too hard for people and also burst limit had just come out so everyone expected PS3 graphics for a PS2 game.

but on topic, hopefully that new patch adds an ending. anyone who doesn't have internet still won't experience the full game if they have the missions through a patch.

That's probably why I never played it. I remember getting Burst Limit on launch day and spending a lot of time with it. I just never went back to the ps2 ones.

It had the best fighting mechanics of any DBZ game up until FighterZ. Budokai 3 was the better game overall because of the great Story mode, but the IW refinements were great. But it came out 4 years after Budokai 3 which was really odd.

I saw this out by IGN


Also some info about the day one patch:

Yeah the sub stories thing is the reason I keep letting people know that we just can't say for sure what scenes and things are actually in the game. Because that's a pretty sizeable patch.

Any word on if the pre-order quest will be available separately later? Don't really want to pre-order just for that.

I haven’t been this excited for a DBZ game since the first Xenoverse & before that Sagas :P

Sagas was okay to me honestly.

My son is super excited for this game. A friend of mine who owns a mom and pop store told me he should be getting some copies in tomorrow... hopefully I'll be able to speak on the pre-day one patch quality tomorrow night

Is this game multiplayer at all? Im in it for single player but I’m just curious.
Unknown at this point in time. Keep in mind this is an Open World ARPG developed by CyberConnect2 (.hack//, Asura's Wrath, Naruto Ninja Storm) and less so an arena style fighter like the Xenoverse games developed by Dimps.

There is quite a bit misinformation being thrown about this on various forums with comparisons with Xenoverse, disregarding press info and descriptions from the publisher online basically saying it's a RPG take of the entire DBZ series focusing on Goku from the beginning of Z with Radditz to the very end of Z with Kid Buu, with special attention on quests and character interactions, including some of the filler content, such as when Goku and Piccolo got their driver's license for example.

I think this game will probably be pretty mediocre, but I’m still hopeful about it.

The use of the classic Kikuchi music, inclusion of original DB characters and attention to obscure details is pure fanservice and it will at least have that appeal going for it.

I hate to say it, but I kind of agree. I don't think it'll be as great as I'd hoped. I pre-ordered it via Steam, hope I don't regret.

Im just here to say that I love the way the flash step looks in this game. They absolutely nailed that shit this time around.

guessing this one didn't have a review embargo?

Yeah I’ve tempered my expectations, so if its main appeal is just nailing the fanservice stuff, I will be by and large satisfied. But if they can actually nail the gameplay as well, then I’ll be over the moon.

Finished the Saiyan Saga. It's rough in some area but certainly good fun if you're into Dragon Ball.

My biggest surprise is the combat. It feels much better than what you've might expect from the trailers, and it's the most fun I had from a DB "arena fighter" in a long while.

The lack of pvp allowed them to make boss fights those Action RPG style fights where it's all about reading patterns and knowing when to dodge and when to guard etc. It works well enough although they started to feel a bit same-y already. It's still a new take on the DBZ fights that we've been playing for decades now and it's commendable.

The new material has been much less than expected so far but what's here is good. You get some Goku/Gohan bonding, a mini flashback with Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta, and a hilarious quest with Piccolo and Yajirobi. Hope we get more of this as the game goes on. The Buu part especially could be a gold mine.

So.. Yeah. I'm having a bit more fun than I was expecting. It's still rough af (and sometimes looking outright ugly), long loading screens, world feels a bit unutilized, etc., but with competent mechanics and the tons of nostalgia and love this game has been filled with, I can't help but liking it a lot as a DB fan.

Do you have all the patches? The one from today was supposed to shorten the loading times
