Peep the reviews below, none of which fell below 80 on Metacritic.

The good

Dragon Ball FighterZ has managed to prioritise competitive play while still packing in the hyper-stylised, fill-your-entire-screen special effects the franchise demands. The moves are super cool, and the fact they don’t obscure vital telegraphing is even cooler.

It's difficult to remain neutral in in the face of Dragon Ball FighterZ: if on the one hand we have a magnificent and stunning transposition of the anime - technically and artistically really out of parameter - on the other hand we see some imbalances in the roster and a gameplay very difficult to master. This does not deny the title a place of excellence in the beat-em-up Olympus, as well as an unmissable opportunity for all Dragon Ball fans.

The great

Between the accessible auto combos, homing attacks, and simplified command inputs, Dragon Ball FighterZ is an inviting gateway into the world of fighting games for newcomers — whether you’re a Dragon Ball fan or not. Dragon Ball FighterZ has enough depth and complexity to glow as brilliantly as a Super Saiyan.


Dragon Ball FighterZ is a very complete fighting game and lived up to the expectations that a saga such as Dragon Ball generates. The essence of Toriyama’s franchise is portrayed with great quality in every character and their moves.

Juan Linares / AREA JUGONES

Dragon Ball FighterZ is an incredible fighting game, with a rock-solid and spectacular combat-system, and the unique Dragon Ball Universe behind it. Competitive and fun, except for the not so brilliant story mode, is an absolute must-have for both the fans of the saga and the fighting game lovers.
