Pros
+Main storyline consists of all major stories for Dragon Ball Z and includes Battle of the Gods story - alongside the main story for the game
+Season Pass/DLC includes GT Saga (Story and characters) and Resurrection F Characters (SSGSS Goku, SSGSS Vegeta and Golden Frieza)
+Parallel quests that increase length of playthrough and also provides replay value due to item drops being like a MMO
+Create your own character out of five possible races: Human, Saiyan, Freiza, Maijin and Namekian. Choose gender and other aspects on the character
+RPG system that lets you grow character as you like alongside customizing appearance and moves
+A MMO like Hub World that allows you to interact with NPCs, to buy items and to do certain quests
+Single Lobby which shows you player characters standing/sitting in one place with the NPCs or Multi Lobby which allows you to interact with other players

Cons
-Due to MMO aspects and RPG aspects, the game feels like a grind at times
-AI allies at times can be useless and AI enemies can sometimes overpower you especially when you are outnumbered
-You can only do offline 1 on 1 (or other fights) via a NPC in the hub world, there is no specific menu for it
-Resetting stats requires you to collect Dragon balls which can be time consuming and requires grinding
-Animations look awkward at times and visuals look dated for a game that was released in 2015
