Hands On Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2

By Spencer . June 24, 2010 . 7:30pm

087Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast 2 should be familiar to anyone who played Spike’s last Dragon Ball fighting game. Aerial energy blasts, destructible mountains, and, of course, Goku were in the demo. Although, Goku looked less cel-shaded compared to his appearance in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast.

 

Since the control layout was the same, I went straight for the new characters like Turles. He’s a speedy character that racks up hits with ease. One combo sends an opponent flying with a knee and he has a fire ring blast attack which I believe is the game’s take on the Kill Driver. Dabura, who was absent from Raging Blast, was playable in the demo too. The Demon King sometimes pulls out a sword during his combos. Like the previous game, Raging Blast 2 feels like the system leans towards ultimate attacks rather than combos.

 

Between fights there was a loading screen with button sequences to push. I followed them, but nothing happened. I asked a rep about the mini-game and he wasn’t sure if it would lead to rewards or if it was just a loading distraction.

 

Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast 2 comes out this fall and will have brand new characters never seen in a Dragon Ball Z fighting game before. We asked Namco Bandai about them, but their lips were sealed. Hey, we tried.

      Its been a long time since I played a DBZ game. I think it was DBZ Tenkaichi 1. This looks promising.

        Tenkaichi 1 is pretty bad. If you enjoyed it at all, then any game you play next in the Tenkaichi and Raging Blast series you’re sure to love.The best one is Budokai Tenkaichi 3, then Tenkaichi 2, and Raging Blast following that. The regular Budokai games are very good too. Budokai 3, Budokai 2, Infinite World, Budokai, then Burst Limit following for last.

        I’ve never played the PSP DBZ games.

          Yeah I played the Budokai games as well and it was a blast and the first Tenkaichi but I stopped after that. I watched a trailer for this latest one and indeed it is awesome.

  • nyobzoo

    saw the trailer and saw nothing new aside from the visuals, will pass on this game

  • Electrium

    I actually don’t own any DBZ games yet, and with the US release of DBZ Kai this seems a good a time as ever to pick one up.

    Characters that have never been seen in a DBZ game before? Didn’t the original Raging Blast have 70+ or something like that? I wonder who it could possibly be.

  • cowcow

    I hope it’s GT Goten & Gohan and end of DBZ Goten & Trunks and Captain Chicken and Vegeta’s little brother and Nekko Majin Z
