The Ultimate Dragon Ball Z Game Tier List

2010s (2010-present)

Ahh, I've wanted to get closer to the present Dragon Ball Z games. The consoles have seen some good entries and bad ones too. Around this time we're shifting over to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so there's growing pains unfortunately.

In 2010, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi was released in 2011 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Both of these titles suffered the same issues as most games. They were passable but barely. The story modes weren't special and gameplay awkward. Keep these below average.

Oh 2012 saw the release of Dragon Ball Z: For Kinect. This Xbox 360 exclusive should be avoided and is best used as a coaster. A month later, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection was released. It played the same as the Budokai games but with better resolution. Eh, solidly average within our hierarchy.

2014 was the release of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z. This was released on the PS3, Xbox 306 and PS Vita. This game was really just made to ride the hype of the movie at the time. Nothing impressive to see here folks.

Just when things weren't looking up 2015 saw the release of Dragon Ball: Xenoverse. This was a Dragon Ball that read like a fan dream for the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. A RPG adventure with a custom character? Time traveling and fights within all story arcs? The gameplay was also the culmination of what worked in the past. I mean what could be better?

Oh, I'll tell you what is better: its sequel. In 2016, Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 was released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. With a shift to modern consoles, its visual were improved. The game was larger the the previous. Also the game has been constantly updated as the new Dragon Ball anime airs. All your favorite characters can be teachers of your created character. You can unlock them all and the story is massive. Of course its endless hours of fun. Online versus is also very solid.

As of now Xenoverse 2 is the best Dragon Ball Z game. No game comes close. If you don't own this game and like Dragon Ball Z, something is wrong friend.
