Dragon Ball Xenoverse

This edition of Out This Week may be fashionably late again, but boy are we bringing the heat. Well, technically, we're not bringing anything – but, er, what we're trying to say is that a lot of good games are due out over the coming days. These include Dragon Ball XenoVerse, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and more. It's also worth mentioning that the physical version of Dying Light is finally due out in Europe on Friday.

Pick of the Week: Dragon Ball XenoVerse

Boasting a huge amount of content split between an alternate history storyline, co-op quests, and character development, Dragon Ball XenoVerse is easily one of the best Dragon Ball games in recent memory. In our review, we praised its accessible but compelling combat, and its fantastic online functionality.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse PS4 Review

Sadly, if you've been holding out for a more traditional Dragon Ball fighter, Dragon Ball XenoVerse isn't it. It is, however, a well realised and refreshing take on Akira Toriyama's universe, which allows fans to appreciate the source material from a whole new angle. Accessible, bombastic combat, entirely customisable characters, and some fantastic online functionality give the game a unique identity, and arguably make it one of the most ambitious licensed titles that we've seen in years.

It's very ambitious as far as licensed releases go, and fans will get a real kick out of how many references and subtle nods to the source material the developer has managed to stuff into the game. Mostly playing as your own custom character, the original work's universe has never seemed so personal.
