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

Dead or Alive 3

ActionTrip

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: 3D fighting games have come along way since Sega created the genre with Virtua Fighter back in 1994. Surpassing every one of them is Tecmo's Dead or Alive 3, simply the most gorgeous, raucous, ineffably superior mixed-martial-arts game yet made.

  • Summary: "If there is one thing in Dead Or Alive 3 that can't be beaten then its multiplayer games. Playing Dead Or Alive against friends or family is great fun" "One big minus point though must go to the fact that punches and kicks tend to look as if they have gone through the characters instead of actually...

  • Conclusion: Pour conclure, le titre est un vrai ravissement qui saura vous séduire. Si vous cherchez le jeu de combat de référence, n’allez pas plus loin. Seul Soul Calibur 2 peut venir contester la première place, mais ça, c’est une autre histoire…

4 June 2003
  • Conclusion: När Dead or Alive såg dagens ljus för fem år sedan var serien en slags kopia på Virtua Fighter 2. Inte bara för att de båda kördes på samma arkadhårdvara och därmed hade samma grafiska förutsättningar, utan kanske främst för deras liknande system för hur man slogs med blott två knappar för attacker.

  • Excerpt: Dead or Alive 3 er landet til Xbox, hvormed vores nye sort-grønne ven har fået sit første kamp-spil. Det er med andre ord på tide, at sparke ballerne op i kraniet på nogle uheldige modstandere, og ikke nok med at det er heftigt! Det er både i 3D og forrygende farver – velkommen til Dead or Alive 3.
