Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot frequently powers up to Super Saiyan levels to deliver awe-inspiring battles between godly beings who can topple mountains with atomic blasts and swing fiery fists to knock each other into the stratosphere. However, when the fight is over and one of the warriors is sent to the afterlife, Kakarot struggles to find a pulse within its sprawling open worlds.
A lengthy action/RPG experience that prioritizes combat and struggles with side content
Although many story sequences only consist of talking heads, the big moments are presented beautifully through animated in-engine sequences that look just like the show
The soundtrack and character voices are fantastic. Some open-world chatter is repeated too often
The combat controls are spot-on, and flying around the open world is an empowering delight
Some of the content is hit or miss, but the story is told nicely throughout and ends up being an enjoyable way to relive this saga
