Released February 27, 2015, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Download had the effect of a breath of fresh air to all fans of the series of Akira Toriyama. It must be said that in recent years, it was not frankly spoiled, and Xenoverse was a return to business for Bandai Namco, who could also count on the release of a new film and a new series to ensure the promotion of his game. The success of the title foreshadowed that a sequel would quickly follow the case, and indeed, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be released on October 28th. At Japan Expo 2016, we had the opportunity to try the game, and what we saw was really good.
Remember, in February 2015, we said of Xenoverse that his most disappointing part was finally the fighting, which lacked a bit of fishing and especially suffered from a real balancing problem. This did not prevent him from collecting, despite everything, the score of 15/20. According to the average rating given by the readers of the opinion was shared. So, to do better than the first episode, Dimps developers (Dragon Ball Z Budokai 1, 2 and 3) had to work hard on the combat part of the game, and make them closer to those proposed by, at random, the Tenkaichi series. At Japan Expo, we were able to try it. To tell the truth, the demo made available was quite limited since it only allowed to confront the computer or a second player in direct clashes, with just a few characters available. But we did not need more to reassure us, since our little half hour of game was able to prove to us that the game had arguments to make. Or at least one, and not least.
This is the real good news of this preview: while playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, we had the fleeting but pleasant impression of playing what would have been Tenkaichi 4, if it had existed. Understand that we find a Dragon Ball Z fighting game in large arena, partially destructible, in which the characters are able to move quite freely, at different speeds and altitudes. A formula known to DBZ fans since the very first Tenkaichi, released in 2005.
However, it turns out that after the third and final opus (no, Ultimate Tenkaichi still does not exist, sorry), the different studios that worked on the series have never really managed to find the magic formula invented by Spike for to propose battles as dynamic, in which to move is not a chore, where to hit his adversary is haphazard luck. The first Xenoverse was not far from it, but it was not counting on the softness of the soundtrack and many imperfections that tainted the gaming experience. With Xenoverse 2, we find with pleasure not guilty the impression of speed and power that emanated from the characters of the three Tenkaichi. Those fighters from the world of Dragon Ball, actually. The Tenkaichi had that great they allowed us to relive to perfection (or almost) the incredible dynamism of the battles of the animated series. A tour de force achieved by Xenoverse 2, almost 10 years after Tenkaichi 3.
The displacements are more precise than in the first episode. Teleportations work much better and allow you to place particularly violent counters, or even to follow an enemy after a projection, to send him flying in another direction. The sequences offer a great variety of shots, most drawn from the animations of the cartoon, and especially finally enjoy a soundtrack worthy of the name. Which was not necessarily won since the previous Xenoverse sometimes gave us the feeling of hitting in sandbags.
It was with a certain pleasure that we found His Goku, Janemba, Gogeta, Thales, Slug, but also the Trunks version Xenoverse or the little Goku Dragon Ball GT. All benefited from a moveset taken directly from the animated. We were quite surprised to see that Goku could turn directly into Super Saiyen 3, without even being able to go through the Super Saiyen stadium. His Ryu-Ken is particularly impressive, since the game, without being a graphic slap, offers rather seductive light effects. Special mention for Gogeta’s Stardust Breaker, or Janemba’s teleports, which are taken directly from the film, and which make it appear on screen in the form of small cubes mingling with each other. As much to tell you that visually, the game is particularly faithful to the original work. Note that to relive the final battle of the 12th film, the artists have not hesitated to create an internship Hell that reproduces each of the elements seen in Fusion.
It will also be noted that it is sometimes useless to counterattack, especially after a teleportation. Imagine: you play Goku and fight a terrible fight against Janemba. The situation is critical but you have confidence in your abilities: a Super Saiyen level 3, it does not make fun seagulls! The monster is about to attack you with all the strength of his fists, and at the moment he begins his series of blows, you teleport behind his back, ready to knead his lumbar. This is where the worry comes in: while the monster carries several shots in the vacuum, caught in its tracks, it turns out that it is impossible to hit him, or at least to inflict damage. It is necessary to wait for the end of his combo to be able to attack it. Strange bug or real bias of the developers, hard to say but as much to tell you that we do not find it frankly relevant.
