Game is so fun, congrats to the devs.

It's literally the DBZ game of my dreams.

Yep, glad it sold that much. It's the DBZ game I've imagined playing since I was a kid. I had a dream about a game like this, we all did.

I have to say as someone who wasn’t a Dragonball fan but gave this is a try, I’m disappointed. Was hoping this could be an entrance into the anime but honestly the game is average at best. I think the wrong lessons will probably be learned by the seemingly successful sales.

For DBZ fans, it's a pretty good game but the open world design is so dumb and empty. Many mechanics does not work

Good sales. I imagine stores later this year could sell this bundled with FighterZ.

Those are good sales. I will definitely get the game at some point on a sale on PC.

Glad this game got good sales, it showed a glimpse of the potential of a good DBZ game.

Calling your boring action game an RPG was very smart though.

I'm glad the game is doing well because I want a sequel packed with a whole lot of improvements. I kinda wish I had bought it for PC because the load times are pretty awful especially when you're hunting for dragon balls or doing side quests. The world itself also feels kinda empty but all the major locales are in this so I'm not sure what else they could do other than adding more filler?

I don't know if I would ever recommend it for anyone that isn't already a fan of the show though.

I also want less Gohan and more Vegeta.

Frankly there is so much Gohan that the game feels more like Dragonball Z: Gohan instead.

I'd personally rather all these mediocre nostalgia wank Dragonball games did worse so that maybe they'd be forced to actually try harder to make one that is a good game in its own right instead of just pandering to fans to distract from bad gameplay loops

It had absolutely zero competition. If the games industry was actually competent and released something decent in January they would make a killing.

Yeah definitely a factor, but really there are so many better games being released nowadays that people should just pick up one they missed out on for whatever reason rather than picking up a mediocre game just because it's new

Finished the game yesterday, and even though it was quite rough in parts overall I love how fully it captured the entire series including the down time, and there were some truly great moments.

I would love a prequel covering all of Dragonball or for a similar open world game for other series like HxH. For all it's warts it was still wayyy better than the standard arena fighter garbage most anime games are.
