3. Dragon Ball FighterZ

And it is that, since we enjoyed its last iteration more than a decade ago, the work of Akira Toriyama had not amazed us again within our world but until Dragon Ball FighterZ; a game that, while not Budokai Tenkaichi, does not need or seek it.
Instead, the work bets on fighting in a lateral direction where a blink at the wrong time can be an actual defeat, causing it not only to be a vibrant and exciting product, endowed with a great tactical component but also is the one that holds the title of best visual representation of DBZ in a video game.

The Unreal Engine 3 did justice by showing how graphically stunning it can make a game look when used correctly. This iteration comes with Fatalities and Brutalities and new game features like Fatal Blows and Crushing Blows. Another important factor that gives the game a first-class status is the incredible audio, but it should not be surpassed by the captivating Story mode.
6. BlazBlue Centralfiction
