Dragon Ball Origins 2 is one of the better Dragon Ball video games to date. There's a lot of frantic martial arts action, a nice exploration element with hidden treasure chests to search for, exciting boss battles, and a good tutorial method that allows you to learn nuanced controls as you advance through the story. It's the Dragon Ball game that many fans of the popular cartoon series have probably been waiting for -- which is ironic as this game is too violent and suggestive for the show's main fan base. The overly mature content, though, is housed entirely within the storytelling cut scenes; so what you've actually got here is an E10+ action game buried in a T-rated story.
