This game is magnificent

From my 336 hours experience in the game, I can inform you that there are little curses in here. They are mostly damn it. There are positive role models, the protagonist being one of them. There is no sex whatsoever. It is a great game that is friendly for all

This title has:

Great role models
Easy to play/use

A better overall game than its predecessor, this fun and frantic brawler is packed with loads of content for longtime franchise fans. Mastering the movies and chains/combos takes some time and serves as a dangling carrot for gamers -- just like the various environments and mostly familiar roster of characters. The time-traveling story may be weak, but it's the gripping fighting scenes that will keep players coming back. Controls feel good and are very responsive, but the camera angles can be unruly at times and even obstruct your view in the middle of a battle. Switch users gain the use of motion controls that mimic characters' special moves, though they're likely to stick with standard button use. Still, the Joy-Con controller does come in handy and is surprisingly effective for quick team play on one system.

On top of the 40-odd-hour single-player campaign, the multiplayer mode feels like a scaled-down MMO (massively multiplayer online) game. Here, other anime characters fly around looking for folks to quest with or adversaries to fight to bump up their power (with up to 300 players at a time). Both offline and online players can replay Parallel Quests to unlock even more skills. This is a solid game that's definitely recommended for Dragon Ball anime fans who like fighting games, and it's great for some brawling fun.
