In our review of the PlayStation 4 version, Lyle Carr said: “After finishing over 30 hours of story missions, Kakarot still has some significant post game content for the most dedicated warriors. This includes some particularly daunting extra “villainous” enemies, which I can’t imagine taking on myself! Almost all of the issues I had with Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot are related to the slow pace of the game. From some lengthy loading screens to the occasional food fetch quest, there are some sections of Kakarot that simply feel sluggish..
Small complaints aside, it’s the huge single player Dragon Ball game I’ve always wanted. Experiencing the story I’ve loved for years in a charming RPG, full of references and the signature sights and sounds of the anime has been a delight. The pacing may be a little slow, but there’s never been a game that’s made me feel more immersed in Goku’s world”, and awarded it an 8.5/10 score.
Additionally Bandai Namco confirmed season 2 is coming on the same date:
DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT and the Season Pass 2 will release on 13th January 2023 on PlayStation 5 and XBOX Series X|S, moreover the upgrade to new gen will be free for all owners of DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT playing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
