Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2
15 Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 Screens Punch Their Way Into Sight

View author's profile

You know, I could sit here all night and pretend like I know the ins and outs of the Dragon Ball franchise thanks to a little thing I like to call the internet. You know, and pretend like I know my Super Saiyan from my Super Vegeta, and all that jazz, but the truth is I won't. And even spending 5 minutes doing some "research" on the whole franchise, I'm still none the wiser.

Nevertheless, I'm here to bring you 15 Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 screens, not educate you people on Dragon Ball when chances are, you're all more qualified than me to talk about it. I am however, qualified to say the game's art style and visuals are pretty stunning - I only needed my eyes to pass that class - but that's the only insight I can honestly give you.

While you check out all of the 15 new screens in the gallery here, I need to dash out to Dragon Ball class. It's a 14 year intensive course that should get me up to speed by the time Raging Blast 10 comes around. Then, and only then, can you test me.

I'd like to see this anime return. A focus on Goten's adulthood.

LOOKS good but the recent run of DB games has been crap. They're all about how many characters you can fit in a game instead of focusing on awesome gameplay. None have been good since the Budokai series and that even peaked at #2 when you could control the level of Super Saiyan you went.

I will say it again and again. I wish they would listen....
Make a Budoki 3 type game, remake it. Create one beased on it. I don't care just make another Budoki 3 type game instead of these crappy ones. People will then actually play them again then!
Listen to the audience Namco!

@4: As much as I love YuGiOh Dragonball basically made anime popular in the US and probably Europe too(not sure).

@6: It's all a matter of opinion but i find Raging Blast better but Burst Limit isn't that bad either.

Burst Limit was the last one I played and it felt significantly diluted next to any in the Budokai series.

Hell, even the imported Dragonball GT for the PS1 felt better and it was horrible but the best DB game you could get your hands on at the time.

This may sound arrogant; but I think that BT2 for the Wii was the epitome. When they came out with BT3; you could play as kid Chi-chi and others...but...who really wanted to?

I liked Raging Blast; but it didn't have some of my favorites.

And I think Sailor Moon helped anime more than DBZ did, in my opinion

I remember rushing home from school to see this, that was like 7 years ago I think lol I have pretty much played every Dragonball game & in my honest opinion as a fan speaking here all these rehash games need to just stop! There not getting any better & theres nothing new we haven't already seen, it's been spammed so much it's just lost it's flair! The only Dragonball game I actually wanna see on the 360 is the RPG version made for PC solely because it would be a change of pace for the series.

As nice as the graphics are, it seems far too much the same. The problem with the camera is when people are directly above or below you, hopefully somethings change.

The problem with the 1st raging blast was that there was barely any characters. Just give us a butt load of fighters, including from GT and I'll be happy.

@32 - Trust me, I'd love to have all the characters. But only if at least 60% of them fought uniquely.

Why do they release screens of these games anymore? I saw this link, and I stopped, and I thought.... "Hmmmm, imagine what the graphics will look like, Cory, I bet you'll be pretty dead-on." I was, down to the UI.

A character referred to as "alternative future Gohan" is a good example of why I stopped following DB as a kid after watching a few seasons. Also, if you notice during any given episode, there is actually only about 5 minutes of action per episode, with the rest of the time being filled with mindless conversation and people talking to themselves about whoever they're fighting. I used to get so aggravated.

Screens look absolutely amazing. I never had the chance to play the first Raging Blast (aside from the demo), but I always did love the Tenkaichi series, and these seem to be exact replicas plus boosted graphics. Definitely going to get this as soon as I can, and maybe find a copy of Raging Blast when the price drops a little more. For a Dragon Ball game, I'm surprised it's still as expensive as it is, especially used.

And when is the forum going to open? I've been waiting forever to make the first thread!

This looks good, but like alot of people have said, the gameplay is probably not going to be the best. The best DBZ game was IMO Budokai Tenkaichi 2. Plus all the characters they've been adding in. I thought Vegeta couldn't go SS3, before you know it they'll be SS4 Gohan and Trunks, etc...

@6 Well neither was very good, Burst Limit is definitely the better of the two. Raging Blast was a mess that tried to make up for it by having more characters.

To give you an idea here are the MetaCritic scores of each:

Burst Limit: 72
Raging Blast: 56

So it would seem unfortunate that we get a sequel to the bad one.

But I say, screw DBZ bring on Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage

Am I the only one who found that the plastic effects on the characters are just too much ? Do this game in all 3D or do this in complete Cel-Shading, but not both at the same time... it doesn't work...

I'm dissapointed by the screens... I wait for a video now, hoping that in action it will be much better. Because... I WANT a stunning DB game on my 360. Please ! Do a Tenkaichi 4 !

@9 yes, yes it did.

@18 & 22
It's teen gohan, Alt. future has a massive scar and his hair is shaved at the back.

I might actually buy this, I think the best was either tenkaichi 2 or budokai 3... Looks stunning graphically.
Also second #47, I want baby also why has no game feature the umpapa brothers? THEIR ARMOUR IS BOOM BOXES! AND THERE POWER IS TO MAKE PEOPLE DANCE UNCONTROLLABLY! overpower much?
I also want more alternate characters, you know like SSJ3 broly (who is technically weaker than his previous form, legendary ssj, as that from had infinate power and ssj3 is kinda limited... -.- silly DBZ designers...
