Critics Consensus

Kakarot is mostly successful in distilling the story of Dragon Ball Z into a 40-hour action-RPG, but the RPG elements are messy, filled with muddy progression and systems that feel useless.

A competent adaptation of the original anime but there’s a serious danger of déjà vu even for series fans, and the solid but unremarkable action is unable to overcome it.

Some of the content is hit or miss, but the story is told nicely throughout and ends up being an enjoyable way to relive this saga.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is not the anime game to end all anime games. It’s not going to convert any non-believers or onboard them into this decades-old classic universe. Even as someone who still re-watches DBZ, it can be grating at times ⁠— but the juice is mostly worth the squeeze.
