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". In truth, DOA is as deep as any other fighting game, and excels in areas that others falter. Limbo stuns, open and closed stances, hi counters. Haven't heard of them? Check some FAQs. Where does DOA3 excel?
  • 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: 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.  Tecmo has DOA3 now, while Sega has Panzer Dragoon and Shenmue II on the way...

  • 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.

Dead Or Alive 3

Active Network
13 November 2003
  • 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 hitting them, and for a fighting game, this is very disappointing.
  • Pros: Great Graphics, Great Multiplayer
  • Cons: Dull Single Player, Poor Stories

  • Conclusion: En conclusion, on peut dire que le jeu est très réussi graphiquement. La jouabilité est très satisfaisante même si les nouveautés par rapport aux précédentes versions ne brillent pas. Mais il serait dommage pour tout possesseur de Xbox de passer à côté de ce titre qui rencontre d'ailleurs un succès incontestable.
  • Pros: manque de nouveautés, faible durée de vie en solo
  • Cons: superbes graphismes, liberté des niveaux, animation rapide

Age of Empires 3

Spieletipps.de
16 March 2004
  • Summary: "Age of Empires 3" bringt viele Neuerungen und hat es trotzdem geschafft, das "Age"-Flair beizubehalten. Besonders das neue Heimatstadt-Feature fügt sich prima in die Wirtschaft ein und erweitert sie sinnvoll. Technisch gibt es an "Age of Empire 3" absolut nichts auszusetzen. Die Grafik ist gigantisch und auch ansonsten ist die Technik ebenfalls top.

  • 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…

  • Excerpt: Dead or Alive 3 (DOA3 d'ora in poi) si presenta subito come un gioco immediato e frenetico. La modalità di gioco principale è lo "Story Mode" nella quale disputeremo una serie di incontri con ciascuno dei personaggi per arrivare al temibile Genra. La trama che guida il gioco è la seguente: "Ryu Hayabusa, il super ninja, aveva posto fine alle malefatte di Tengu Bankotsu-Bo. Ma troppo tardi!
