Divekick Review (PS3)

Softpedia
29 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Divekick impresses through its attempt at delivering simple mechanics but its execution isn't the best, as inconsistencies in terms of hit detection and erratic mechanics like the teleport one decrease the amount of fun you can have with it.
  • Pros: +The simple mechanics are easy to learn, +Lots of crazy characters
  • Cons: -Bland graphics, -Hitbox detection is erratic, -Soundtrack and voice work are repetitive

  • Conclusion: Divekick is a clever proof of concept for a fighting game reduction, and while that concept never quite turns into a fighting game great, it remains a precise and fast-paced alternative in a genre where it can often take hours just to get a grip on a single character.

Divekick Review

  • Summary: Divekick’s niche presentation is only a shame because everyone should play Divekick. This is a fighter that’s all about the fundamentals, about reading your opponent and then making intelligent plays based on their predictable attacks and emerging tells.

  • Excerpt: Can a jokey concept carry an entire game? That's the question postured by Divekick, an indie fighter that riffs on the idea that downward foot dives have become a staple of the fighting game genre.
  • Pros: Matches against foot-divers of equal skill, Obscenely obscure in-jokes for fighting fans, Smooth online play
  • Cons: Lackluster visuals, Inexplicably struggling to understand two-button controls, Some instances of casual racism

Divekick's two-button fighting and in-jokes limit its appeal (review)

VentureBeat
20 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Divekick is a fighting game unlike all others, and that makes it worth trying at least once. However, even the nuance that it has is not enough to sustain it. The three modes — single-player and multiplayer — are roughly identical in content, even if one means you’re squaring off against A.I.
  • Pros: Divekick might not always make sense, but that’s its charm. I found a partner for local multiplayer, and while we rolled our eyes a lot in the beginning, we were laughing and enjoying the antics soon after. The humor is good if mildly offensive. Mr. N, the overweight nerd character who wears foot...
  • Cons: You use two buttons for everything — even menu navigation and selection — and I hated it. L1 scrolls left, R1 scrolls right, and both together choose a mode/menu, characters, gems (boosts to meter, dive, kick, and so on), and “duds” (a character’s colors). It might sound easy to grasp and remembe...

  • Summary: With only two buttons and twenty second rounds, DiveKick may sound too simple to be any fun. But that's where you're wrong. This is a game that will not only bring new fans to the genre, but also keep the hardcore fighting fans coming back for more.
