Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is one of two games I purchased on my Switch today. So how is it?
I briefly played the first Xenoverse game. I put about 10 hours in it before I called it quits. I never gave it a fair chance because I was in the middle of other games and I didn’t have time for it. I like this game, but I’m not in love with it. The gameplay isn’t bad, but it pales with compared to other fighters out there. What I do like is the customization, story and multiplayer. I can team up with my friends and complete different missions, level up and unlock new moves.
I like the laid back approach too. Xenoverse 2 isn’t taking itself very seriously right now and I even chuckled a few times while playing it. Since this game is on the Switch you know there’s going to be a gimmick. Motion controls have made their way to Xenoverse 2 and I have no plans on ever trying them out. I don’t dream about performing Kamehameha’s and I’m not a huge fan of Goku.
The graphics are nice. The game looks good on the big screen and better in handheld mode. I ran the game flawlessly on my TV, but as soon as I undocked it my fps tanked. I’m hoping this is a bug because it only playable during fights. I couldn’t run around the main hub at all because of the frame drops.
Xenoverse 2 is a solid fighting game so far. I like my created character, I’m digging the story and I like the multiplayer aspects of the game. The customization is good too and that’s a major plus.
What do you think of Xenoverse 2? Have you played it before? Did you buy it on the Switch?
