Dragon Ball Fighter Z and Guilty Gear XRD Sign, Rev and Rev 2 are all critically acclaimed fighting games and are developed by Arc System Works. Both of these games have very similar art styles but which game as a whole is better? Let’s compare them.
Arc System works are world class when it comes to creating high-end cell shaded anime visuals. Both Guilty Gear and Dragon Ball Fighter Z have brilliant visuals. Character skills are flashy and colourful in both of these games and cutscenes are fantastically made.
Overall the visuals in both Dragon Ball Fighter Z and Guilty Gear XRD are similar so both of them are winners in this category. (win = both)
Guilty Gear has a classy western rock soundtrack with its own twist, and most of the tracks are excellently composed. Guilty Gear has always had that “metal rock” style since it came out back in 1998 and had stuck with it. The soundtrack in Guilty Gear is both refreshing and satisfying.
The Soundtrack in Dragon Ball Fighter Z is exceptional, but it’s not “Dragon Ball” in my opinion. What I mean by this is I thought Arc System Works tried to force the Guilty Gear “rock” style into this game and while the tracks do sound nice I was reminded of Guilty Gear a bit too much. So the winner in this category is Guilty Gear in my opinion (Win = Guilty Gear)
Both Dragon Ball Fighter Z and Guilty Gear are extraordinary when it comes to gameplay, and both try to appeal to different to people. For example, if you like Dragon Ball Fighter Z and its gameplay I wouldn’t necessarily say you would like Guilty Gear. Both of these games may look the same, but they are very different when it comes to gameplay.
For example, Dragon Ball Fighter Z is much easier to play compared to Guilty Gear and does not have as much depth when it comes to gameplay.
Dragon Ball Fighter Z may be more comfortable to play but it is still enjoyable and both veterans and casuals will enjoy the gameplay in this game. Dragon Ball Fighter is an accessible game.
The same can not be said about Guilty Gear as this game is not accessible at all. There are so many mechanics in this game that it will make your brain burn.
Learning how to play a single character in Guilty Gear can take weeks or even months. You really have to be dedicated if you want to get good at this game.
And that’s why I personally prefer the gameplay in Guilty Gear. Mastering a single character can be so satisfying and rewarding, and you feel like a champ when you win a single fight in Guilty Gear.
All in all, this is just a preference of mine. I’m not going to say Guilty Gear has better gameplay than Fighter Z because some people might prefer the more accessible, “fun” combat system in Dragon Ball Fighter Z. Some people may hate the difficult combat system in Guilty Gear.
That being said if you feel Fighter Z is too easy for you and you want more then I recommend you check out Guilty Gear XRD Rev 2. (Win = Guilty Gear (In my opinion. It depends on the person)
Both Dragon Ball Fighter Z and Guilty Gear XRD are brilliant fighting games and deserve their acclaim, but I personally slightly prefer the Guilty Gear XRD Series.
