Dead or Alive 3

swapgame
18 June 2004
  • Excerpt: Fighting games make up that section of gaming referred to affectionately by the PlayStation generation as 'hardcore games'. Though the boundaries of what this means have shifted, it would be fair to say arcade heritage and true old-skool gameplay are what is required to fulfil the criteria.

Dead or Alive 3

Into Liquid Sky
14 November 2003
  • Excerpt: The DOA series is one of the most controversial fighting games around. Fighting game elitists, in particular, seem to find joy in bashing the series. It has been called everything from a "button masher" to "hentai for the masses".
  • Pros: Great Graphics, Polished Gameplay, 4 New Characters, CG Endings
  • Cons: Lack of Extras, Counter "catch" time needs to be reduced, Xbox controller isn't ideal for this game

  • Excerpt: Dead or Alive 3 is a 3D fighting game where you must KO your opponent to win. You have 17 unique characters to choose from. (16, plus 1 unlockable.) Each character also has multiple costumes, many unlockable. So what\'s the big deal? Sounds like any other fighter, right?

Dead or Alive 3 – Review

GameCritics.com
7 February 2002
  • Excerpt: Tecmo's Dead Or Alive series has, unfortunately, always been the Frank Stallone of fighting games. The original was released to a small Japanese audience on the short-lived Sega Saturn, and its subsequent 1998 release on the Playstation played second fiddle to Namcos blockbuster Tekken 3 .

  • Excerpt: All along here at CV-Games, I have made no secret about my love for the Dead or Alive series. So naturally, when I heard about DOA3 for the Xbox, I was excited. However, there was a point when I wasn't sure about getting the Xbox, but in the end DOA was too tempting and I caved.

ActionTrip
8 January 2002
  • Conclusion: Playing in single-player mode, one can get rather bored after a while, despite the beautiful graphics and many different techniques. Naturally, that would be the right time to switch to some multiplayer action and show some of your friends how to do that 5-hit combo move.
  • Pros: Any self-respecting beat-em-up fan should own this game;
  • Cons: Single-player can get boring after a while, as your skills grow ...which would be the right time to bring some friends over.

The Next Level
17 December 2001
  • Excerpt: By now, most gamers have been able to experience the game for themselves, and quite frankly, first impressions are absolutely stunning. I really don't want to touch on the graphics that much because in all seriousness, there's nothing much to comment that hasn't been said already.

  • Conclusion: and clothing attributes of the characters during gameplay are gorgeous in their own right. You can see the attention to detail in creating each of the individual character's entire physical makeup.

Shin Force

  • Excerpt: in America first and exclusively for Dreamcast, Tecmo really scored points with me. Now, it seems that companies are gracing Microsoft's Xbox with their elite games, as it supposedly has the most power in the current console market.
