ZEQ2-Lite is an open-sourced and mod expandable project based on a highly modified ioQuake3 engine foundation and features many true-to-reference DBZ visuals and mechanics.
Everyone reads mangas, i suppose, and lot of them want a manga-based game. This is the Dragon Ball pc game. When i start the executable and play on lan with my friends, i fell like playing budokai tenkaichi, the manga itself. The Zeq2 story is long, I am going to summarize everithing. This game starts with one map and three characters (Goku, Raditz and Piccolo), like the 1st chapter of DbZ story. A good game with decent graphics. A small roster that has bored many fans. They asked for more, more characters, more maps... But nothing... "You need to wait". Months and months, filled by addons that deep down were discrete. But now, 16th March, a new revision comes, who re-invent this game. All the official characters (or a lot of them) have been relased, new maps, a "full working server browser" and an 1 vs 1 lockon mode and a new shading never seen before, that have made this game more similar to the tenkaichi series. The new roster consist of: Vegeta (sayan and cell saga), Goku, Frieza (only 1st form), Perfect cell, Raditz, Piccolo, Crilin and Nappa (still prototype, he's got some neck problems).
Goku and Vegeta can transform, and everyone's got his original voice (when deads and charges). Immense maps (Desert, Nameck, Cell games and much more...) make this game the real opponent of esf, and for now, the best DbZ based game in the place. It should deserve 7, or 8, but there's a thing who make me fall in love of this revision, the music themes. Remixed ones, new ones which give you the right suspense at the right time. There are bugs and crashes, related with the brand new chat, but they're small. Keep it up team, we want more relases, we want the 10/10.
This is a fun game. Nothing more, nothing less. It's far from finished at the time of this review, and I look forward to seeing where it goes. Unfortunately I was not able to connect for a multiplayer game, but playing against bots was fun and challenging. Good work.
