    Perfect Port!

    Honestly, I was skeptical of how this game would run on Switch. I have it for Xbox One and the game looks amazing there. The switch port looks and plays great as well! I picked it up for switch for portability. The game is basically a 3 on 3 tag battle fighter similar to something like Marvel Vs. Capcom. The gameplay is fast and easy to learn though hard to master. It also has a ton of modes to play including a story mode that is quite long. On switch, the gameplay is fast and stays at 60 FPS during actual fighting, only dipping a bit during some Supers though since you don't have control of your fighter during those, it doesn't affect the gameplay. Also some detail had to be scaled back a bit though it's not that noticeable. Overall this is an incredible port especially in Handheld mode. I would reccomend getting the Hori Joy con L since it has an actual D Pad which works great for this game in handheld mode.

    What Marvel vs Capcom Should Have Been!!

    I love fighting games made by Arc systems! They make great Guilty Gear and Blaze Blue games so now with the DBZ license they made a great 2d fighter! If you have played Marvel vs Capcom 2 or any arc systems games and love that style of gameplay then this only improves upon that! This team makes great fighting games and this is no exception, in my opinion it's their best effort yet! Now for those whinning about not getting the pre order snes fighting game, believe me you are missing nothing. I have owned a copy of that game since the 90s and believe me, it's hot garbage. You will play it 15 min. or so and NEVER touch it again so please review Dragon Ball Fighter Z, not whether you got a chance to play a dumpster fire of a game!

    Plays perfect on the Switch!

    I have this game on high powered gaming PC. Yet, I can barely tell the difference between the switch version and the PC version. (Honestly the switch version feels superior for less set up issues). I highly recommend this game and have been playing it constantly. I dont believe you can simply play it locally with one joycon each since it requires two shoulder buttons and two triggers. So keep that in mind if playing locally you'll need 4 joycons or 2 joy cons and a pro controller or with as many buttons. Warning, after playing this game you might go binge watch all the Dragonball Super episodes on Funimation's website after playing this game. You have been warned. (You will understand who these additional dragonball z characters though after binge watching the episodes).

    The best 2D fighter on the Switch

    An incredible fighter, likely the greatest licensed anime game ever. The story mode in long and expansive, as well as fully voiced, the roster of 24 is well balanced and similar enough to each that skill with one translates to the others, but there are enough differences for hardcore fight fans to have plenty of intricacies to master. Very casual friendly, but holds plenty of competitive worth. The branching arcade mode that changes based on your performance is also quite genius. What makes this the definitive version though is 6-player local multiplayer and the ability to lab combos on the go. Until Smash drops, this is it, fam. And it'll still be relevant when Smash is out because it's just that great. A must own.

    This was a gift for my son. We were digging around because he was sort of retro into PowerballZ and there was a card game that looked totally boring, unless you're into card games and he is not. Then we found this, which was the only one. Very much Street Fighter, Capcom, Injustice type looking game. In other words great. Action and playability is fun. The cut scenes for the single player game are too long for me but, I suppose that's the appeal of the show/game. If you just want to throw down PowerballZ style and have great eye candy doing it, this should do the trick.

    Best Fighter I have ever played

    One of the best things about this game is how easy it is to pick up and play. The auto combos are effective enough that i can play with my friends and nobody is totally out of the game because they dont know the controls. Also the fact that all super moves are performed the same way for each character makes it easy to pick up new guys without much training before hand. My only complaint is there is not a lot of single player content so you are going to have to be brave and jump online or have a friend over to battle.

    DBZ fighting games has not had a great history, but all that changes with DragonBall FighterZ. Created by the team that brought you Guilty Gear, the fighting game pedigree shines once you boot it up. Simple controls that allow fighting game new comers perform combos and moves straight from the anime, but systems and mechanics deep enough for hardcore fighting game fans. I was sacred they would have to sacrifice a lot to bring a port to the switch, but the port remains faithful to the big boy consoles.

    I’m amazed that this game was brought to the Nintendo Switch. Sure, the graphics aren’t on par with the other consoles but they are impressive none the less. Having this game in portable format definitely makes up any shortcomings graphically. This game is just fun. It has depth as a fighter so learning characters’ movesets/combos/counters is a must. This is a great game and worth owning. With that being said, I’d recommend picking this title up when on sale due to its age.

    As far as I can tell, Dragonball FighterZ plays exactly the same as it does on PS4 and XB. The action is beautiful and silky smooth. The full game is here, there were no sacrifices made to the game modes, graphics, or smooth framerate and gameplay. Get this version over the other two for the simple fact that it's identical AND you can play it where ever you want. I played it in handheld mode at my in-law's house the past couple weekends and it looks and plays great in handheld mode.

    Best DBZ Game

    I have played many DBZ fighting games (and a few RPGs) and after playing this one I can say it is the best one. The game play is similar to the Marvel vs Capcom games, which ends up working perfectly. No more flying around in 3D just spamming energy attacks. Instead it is a true fighting game, but still retains all the DBZ fan service AND a great original story mode. Lastly, the graphics are gorgeous; it looks as close to the anime as possible.

    I recently had bought this on the PS4 and absolutely loved it! The graphics look straight from the TV show and the fighting mechanics were incredible! I decided to pick it up on the switch because of the portability aspect and im happy to say, this game is incredible on the switch! The graphics and frame rate take a small hit but the on the go function more than make up for it! A must have for any DBZ fan or anyone who owns a switch!

    This game is truly beautiful! I was super excited to see it get a Switch port and i think it's the best way to play this game especially if you have a pro controller. The idea of being able to take a fighter like this on vacation or to a friends house is the reason to buy it! Plus it's by the same makers as guilty gear, so you know it's smooth like butter! I recommend everyone pick this game up if your a fan of 2D fighters

    Picked this up to have another fighting game. Have had Pokken Tournament for a while now and prefer these new fighters over the old Street Fighter style. Amazing art, looks just like the cartoons. Easy combos, especially with the Pro Controller or the new Joy-Con with the left dpad. Lots of fighters, only disappointing feature is so many that are only available via purchase. Oh well, I'll stick with the ones that are built in.

    At first I was skeptical with this port of the game to the Switch. The Open Beta left me to desire more, as well as deal with the netcode issues I was facing. However, in this final release, It seems all of those kinks were worked out. This is the same solid fun DBFZ game released on consoles and PC, now ready to take anywhere. I would recommend this title if you are a DBZ fan and wanting to play more wherever you are.

    FighterZ is a fantastic game and I was worried that it wouldn't run nearly as well on the Nintendo Switch. To my surprise, the game runs smoothly and you still get that crisp FighterZ fighting experience. If you are a fan of traditional fighting games or a big Dragon Ball Z fan, I highly recommend this game as the gameplay is great, beginner friendly, and filled to the brim with love for the Dragon Ball franchise.

    Had been dying to get this game, but was holding off on the Switch version because of the portability factor and because I can usually get a group of friends around it rather than my PS4.. game looks almost as good as it does there, my only gripe is playing with the standard joycon can be slightly annoying with no D-pad.. so I highly recommend using a pro controller or one of the other options with d pad.

    The Switch finally gets one of the best fighting games released this year. Graphics are great, gameplay is fast & fluid, easy to pick up & play for beginners & veterans alike. My only complaint is that the loading times are kinda long but hopefully it gets fixed in a future performance patch. Other than that it’s a solid port & shows that the Switch can definitely hang with the other consoles like PS4 & Xbox.

    A great 2D fighter with a DBZ skin

    Make no mistake, I love this game. The fighting mechanics, the art style is great, and the developers have been putting out plenty of paid DLC, but at the end of the day, this is a fighting game with a DBZ skin. If you want to fly around in a 3D space, Xenoverse 2 would be better suited, but this game definitely does the 2D fighting genre justice. cannot recommend enough

    If you haven't played this game on any of the other consoles you should definitely give it a try. It is a great fighting game in general andeasy to get the hang of with some added depth. The online portion of the game is Hit-and-miss and unfortunately some games can be pretty laggy but that's not to say you cant find some good ones. Over all just a great buy and a great fighting game
