Games Review: Dragon Ball FighterZ (PS4, 2018): Style, simplicity and super powers

The Dragon Ball series has always been a no-brainer as far as content for fighting games goes. Nevertheless, Dragon Ball games have tended to fall short of what most players assumed should be a slam dunk — they were wonky fighters, focused more on channelling the look and feel of the legendary anime than they were on creating a solid fighter. In Dragon Ball FighterZGuilty Gear developer Arc System Works have gotten right to the heart of the matter, creating the Dragon Ball fighter fans have dreamed of for over two decades.
