Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is everything I’ve ever wanted out of this franchise. It’s the same series I know and love with new stuff added onto it. It retains everything I love about Dragon Ball games, and expels everything I hate. It’s a content-packed game that doesn’t feel monotonous or like a total slog. In conclusion, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a damn good video game.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 should be an instant buy for long time fans of the series, and warrants a deep look from everyone else. I’d love to see a bit longer of a gap between this and the (hopefully) inevitable Xenoverse 3 than the year between the first and second titles to really hammer out some of the game’s issues, but until then we’ve still been left with a fighting game that does enough well, and enough different from its competitors, to stand worthy as it is.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a love letter to the series’ biggest fans. Newcomers might not understand what’s happening, but fans will appreciate the high-octane supernatural martial arts. The attention to detail is astounding, from the lovingly made hub world to the cutscenes that recreate classic scenes from the anime. The story takes about 15-20 hours, but building up your custom character and completing quests easily quadruples that number. While grinding is unavoidable thanks to difficulty spikes and random drops, the wealth of content eases the process. Although there is a large number of repeated content, there’s enough in this powered-up sequel to convince Dragon Ball Z fans to fight once more.

Xenoverse 2 comes recommended from me with a simple point: if you didn't enjoy Xenoverse 1 at all, you won't enjoy the second. If you did enjoy part or all of the original, then this sequel should surprise you with how much you thought didn't need fixing but actually did. With a larger hub world and still being supported by DLC, Xenoverse 2 continues to be the definitive Dragon Ball Z gaming experience.

Coming to the end with my final thoughts on Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Dimps has created a sequel to Xenoverse that doesn’t quite feel like a massive advancement in the series, but there is no doubt that this is a larger and more improved experience. Dimps has decided to keep things similar and use the first game as the foundation to build this sequel on. What this means is that there is so much to do, even when one has finished up the 15 hour single player story quests. This will be a joyous time for fans of Dragon Ball that wanted more Xenoverse, and especially more so for those that skipped the first title. Overall, there is a sense of “didn’t I do this before last year?” that makes Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 loose some of the shine that a sequel should come with. That said, the Xenoverse series is on the right track to becoming something great, albeit, just moving its advancements at a slow pace, kind of like Goku charging up in an episode of Dragon Ball Z.
