Dragon Ball FighterZ may be yet another DBZ game, but that does not stop it from being an utterly fantastic brawler all around. With Street Fighter and Guilty Gear as an obvious inspiration, DBFZ is far more than just a mere anime title.

With PlayStation's summer sale well underway, players have the option of choosing from numerous titles to satisfy whichever kind of gaming needs they possibly might have. Red Dead Redemption 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Bloodborne, Persona 5 - these are only some of the games that you can grab at a discounted price.

However, the one title that we want to highlight in Sony's impressive lineup is a game that's not exactly the most mainstream AAA title in the world, but is very much deserving of all the love that it's rightfully received since launch. We're talking of course about Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Now, we know that the first argument that might spring to your mind is that this game is meant for anime fans only, but nothing could, in fact, be further from the truth.

With Arc System Works behind its development, Dragon Ball FighterZ's gameplay is highly reminiscent of Street Fighter and Guilty Gear. So if you're a fan of these two legendary fighters, odds are good that you will absolutely love what FighterZ has to offer.

Being a Dragon Ball Z game, one would think that FighterZ is yet another fan service game, but the fact is that you don't necessarily need to know who Goku or Vegeta are to enjoy this exhilarating brawler.

Such knowledge would help increase the immersion - yes, but if core gameplay and excellent fighting mechanics are things you care about the most, and you like how Street Fighter feels when you start mashing those buttons, then you will feel right at home with DBFZ, albeit with a few more flashy ki waves going berserk all over your screen.

Speaking of flashy ki waves, amazing visuals is another one of this game's stronger traits. The best way to describe the way FighterZ looks is that if someone were to walk into your room while you were playing the game, they would genuinely think that you're watching an actual episode of the anime.

The sounds, the iconic moves and authentic atmosphere, the way everything molds together - it's just a perfect Dragon Ball Z package.

Having won over 20 awards at E3 2017 and being declared the best anime game ever made by fans, the discounted price of £19,99/€24,99/$14,99 for Dragon Ball FighterZ makes it a seriously hard offer to resist.

So do yourself a favour and grab this game as soon as you can, even if you're not a hardcore DBZ fan - the fighting is simply far too entertaining to be missed out on.
