My impression of this game lived up to the hype that I expected with the game going back to its original roots from Gameboy/PlayStation 1 days.

Now, because this was a BETA, the only problem with the game I had was trying to find an online game which took way too long to find a player. On the other hand though, the matchmaking was fantastic and a challenging experience. When I first jumped on the game I didn’t know what to do and was kind of lost, but thankfully there was a basic training that gave me an idea of the mechanics and the style which the game was built around. Getting use to the overall moves online was like a button mash in a half, but thankfully the games special moves were very good and the destruction in-game was fantastic.

Sound and Music was absolutely on point, and what blew my mind was changing the voice actors from Japanese to English. Customizing you’re players avatar and walking around was also great treat. The Character choices in the game was a lot and I kept getting glitches out of the game whenever I choice Goku, Vegeta, and Beerus. All other Characters I’ve tried were killing it online. I never got the opportunity to play Arena Battle Area, due to players not inviting me or there was no option for it at all, which was alittle disappointing.

Graphics wise I loved it, they went with the Unreal Engine and for some reason the gameplay was very smooth for a BETA. Online was almost lag free and surprisingly no drops outs, which is really weird in an open BETA. They had no DEMO story mode to play which was expected, and no other modes other then online and Basic training.

My final comment on the BETA is with only a few slight adjustments make would make it look even better then it already does. My hype cannot wait until next week, but one thing's for certain is that this is the sort of game I’ve been waiting for.
