Dragon Bazz Legends is a game created by Bandai Namco and I think that this game is a step in the right direction. We all have witnessed a lot of bad games made of the Dragon Ball Z franchise. But I think that this time we have a good game here. Graphically and thematically, it is unmistakably Dragon Ball. However, Legends adopts a portrait aspect and swaps a myriad of kick and punch buttons for a simple tap the screen mechanic. Indeed, Bandai Namco claims you can play the Android and iOS game with just one finger. Dragon Ball Legends is mainly played over the internet in real time and needs to provide a smooth, fast experience but without punishing those without a strong or speedy net connection. If you don`t want to lose because of your slow internet. Get to WiFi!
DRAGON BALL LEGENDS Gameplay and Review
The gameplay of Dragon Ball Legends is something that is the core of the game. There are cards and you are choosing them in order to tell your character what to do. Instead of choosing to punch, kick, throw and the like, you tap any number of four cards that appear on screen at any one time. They are specific to each character in the game and perform different moves. A red card, for example, performs a melee attack, a yellow card a ranged attack and green and blue cards are for special assaults. They each take up energy, so you can chain them together as long as they don’t use up more than 100 energy points at any one time. Dragon Ball Legends uses Google’s Cloud Platform to match-up and host PVP battles, which ensures a stable and steady connection no matter where you are in the world. However, if you don’t have any internet – when on the Tube, for instance – you can play two other game modes, each against computer opponents. One will have campaign elements and the other is designed for quick and easy play. It is the latter we played mostly in our hands-on session at GDC. We’re sure PVP action will feel a bit different when fully available, but the AI provided a decent challenge, especially as we were getting to grips with the game.
