This game, in fact, has everything to offer, even to players who don't play 2D fighters... like me! I did play Soul Calibur a bit in the past, but I never got into the mainstream series like Street Fighter and Tekken. It may seem a bit daunting to learn all the terms and combos, but once you master them you never forget! And if you're already a huge fighter game fan then obviously this won't be a problem. For the controversy over that Switch games are "inferior" to PS4 (such as lower frame rates, decreased graphics, etc.) I can say this game is the exception. It runs and looks the same much as the PS4 and I've no complaints. There is the topic of online, but only if you bump into someone with a crappy connection, which can be easily avoided.
My only quip? The game is VERY costly.
No, I don't mean the $20 price tag. That's an amazing deal, considering the digital version on Nintendo eShop normally sells for $60. I mean that several of your favorite characters (i.e., Broly, Bardock, Vegito, etc.) are paywalled behind DLC fighter packs for exorbitant prices, the most recent being $19.99, with others being around $24.99 - $34.99 per pack. Now it's totally true that you can buy each individual character separately for around $4.99, but if you want the full experience with all the characters, you'll need to dish out around $90 or so in total. And that's not to count the other DLC, such as custom stickers and additional music tracks.
Yeah, I get it. All games have DLC. But this game in particular feels almost a little slimy in that you have to pay so much to play characters that should have been included from the start of the game. Android 17, for example, exists in the original as one of Android 18's special attacks, but he himself was rendered non-playable until *gasp* a DLC for him dropped later. Maybe this sort of thing doesn't affect people who have been playing the game since season 1, since they would have incrementally bought each fighter pass as it came. But that's pretty irrelevant anyway -- if you already owned the game, you wouldn't be here, about to buy it, reading my review!
If I could suggest anything, play the game at its base, learn the mechanics, master combos, and just have fun. If you're serious about it and see yourself playing it all the time, then by all means, buy all the DLC you want! I haven't touched the DLC myself because I have my own expenses, and when I do game, I switch off between this and a few others, so it's not as though I can invest all my time into it. Realistically I can only see myself buying a few DLC separately, and were it not for this I would give it a 5 star.
DBFZ on the switch is great for beginners getting into fighting games. It is one of the very few fighting games on the switch. It is a great port, but the online player base might be small depending on where you play.
DBFZ has an easy auto combo system, as long as you play the tutorial you will be able to pull off combos within a couple of minutes.
I stopped playing DBFZ because I ended up getting into other fighting games. Still, DBFZ gave me that foundation for the fighting game genre. The games I play now are more challenging than this one, so if you are a newbie to fighting games like I was, I recommend picking this up if you are interested. Preferably, pick this up when it goes on sale.
There is a lot of polish and love put into this game. The developers appear to be true fans of the franchise in their recreation of iconic moments from the series. Several fan favorites from the cartoons have been included and given techniques that highlight what fans have loved from their favorites.
If you enjoy either fighting games or Dragon Ball in any form, do yourself a favor and pick this up. It will give you and your friends hours of enjoyment!
