It’s 2020 and some people haven’t witnessed the greatest anime of all time yet. Don’t worry too much about it, because now the greatest game of all time is here!
I’m exaggerating a bit, but when am I not exaggerating?
New Year, New Games!
2020 is a year filled with many amazing anticipated games, including Cyberpunk 2077 and Ghost of Tsushima. To kickstart this year with a game as magnificently made as Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is a gift from above for a long-time fan. What’s better than reliving the epic Dragon Ball Z storyline with the cast?
The Origin Of It All
For those who grew up playing the legendary GameBoy trilogy Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku, Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku 2, and Dragon Ball Z: Buu’s Fury you would love Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. It’s all three games in one with revamped graphics. An RPG game that not only tells the story of Goku and the Z-Fighters but the chance to travel around the Dragon Ball universe. From West City to Kame House, it’s a new, open-world adventure we haven’t gotten in any Dragon Ball game.
Bandai Namco, Kakarot’s publisher, has blessed us with several Dragon Ball RPGs already. There are even some non-RPG Dragon Ball games that are arguably the best Dragon Ball games of all time, such as Dragon Ball FighterZ. But what makes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarotdifferent from those games? The experience that comes with it. A lot of Dragon Ball games published relived the storyline, but none have ever done it like DBZK. Having the opportunity to interact with side characters from the original series, going fishing, side missions that feel like filler episodes, and most importantly gathering the dragon balls. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarotisn’t just a videogame; it’s the entire Dragon Ball Z series and then some.
Comparing it to the newer Dragon Ball games such as the Dragon Ball Xenoverse series or Dragon Ball FighterZ just wouldn’t do it justice. Even with no online features, there is so much to explore in this game. Luckily, there are also 72+ hours of gameplay that makes the adventure worth the while. Witness the longest 5-minute fight of all time, fending off against the ultimate life form, and beat up a walking- talking mutant bubble gum! If I were to give Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot a score out of ten, it would be an undeniable eleven out of ten.
