Summary: Lets start with the visuals. Dead or alive 3 was the best looking fighting game on the original XBOX console. The characters and Multi-Level Stages are both created with great detail and imagination. Everything looks dark now in comparison to ultimate and DOA4 but still even if you've had a XBOX360 since launch DOA3 is no eyesore.
Summary: I have loved the Dead Or Alive Series Ever Since The First One for the PS1, and the 4th one, and the 2nd one, and the Extreme Series, and I don;t understand why the 3rd one went wrong. The 3rd one was just missing something that the others had. This is what I thought went wrong: the language settings were stupid, the characters movesets were simple and I could not just grasp them, the stories were so weird, and pointless, I did like the characters that were newly...
Conclusion: Oh my goodness a totally awesome game right here. Ever since that one time I played it at school, when my friend brought his X-BoX, I've been in deep like with this game. I mean it was so awesome. First time I played, I played with Zack. Then when I got the game I got real good with Brad Wong and Christie. There are some good modes. Such as Aracade, Versus, Survival and anything regular for a fighting game. And then there is the tag in which is so fun to play.
Conclusion: Dead or Alive may be the ultimate fighting game ever! I know thats alot to say but it's true. The graphhics are great with authentic moves. Animation is top notch. The game plays wonderfully and totally sucks you in. The sound is great too but english voice overs should have been implimented. The controls all feel great and you always know what button too press. I have a controller s so the big controler could be a different story. Characters woth a thousand words.
Dead or Alive it dont matter, just buy it from the grave..

Summary: An improved Dead or Alive 2, with improved graphics and levels, a must have for the console as this game,didnt appear on any other format..theres not much to say, but kicking and punching people over cliffs and into animals never gets old.
Excerpt: "...are the creators of the Dead Or Alive series. There are three things you can say you get with the DOA fighting games:amazing graphics, big boobed women and a great fighting system. Starting in 1996 on the arcades, DOA has pretty much been the underdog of the 3D fighting game genre, as it takes a sidebench for other figting games like Tekken, Soul Caliber and Virtua Fighter. DOA3 was one of the Xbox launch titles alongside games like Halo, Oddworld:Munches ...
Pros: Amazing visuals; great sound; deep counter system; excellent fighting engine; awesome multiplayer .
Cons: Slightly overwhelming sexual themes; minor character balancing issues; a little lack of modes
Excerpt: "...for a pre-owned copy of Dead or Alive 3 from Game. I hadn't seen the previous 2 versions of the game nor in fact heard of them but was taken in my the stunning screen shots - the 7 game modes and 16 characters to choose from which instantly appealed as a game that could be played on my own or with mates after a trip to the pub. As with most fighting games when played in one player mode you get the chance to progress through the story mode fighting ...
Pros: Great graphics - awesome gameplay - cool soundtrack - cheap for pre - owned copies
Summary: After wanting this game for ages I finally bought it and I thought it was great. After a while I found myself getting bored. Unlike Soul Caibur that offers you some cool and different things to try DOA doesn’t offer anything new in the gameplay. The moves are basic, the story is boring and there aren’t many different matches. Its only the graphics and cutscenes that you can unlock that are great. The rest is pretty pants.
Excerpt: "...quite a fan of the dead or alive games. They aren't as complex as virtua fighter, yet still offer a deep fighting system and play very fluidly. DOA3 is no exception to this. The gameplay is much the same as doa2, but reversals have been made slightly easier. Graphically, this is a showpiece for the power of xbox. It really pushes xbox close to it's limits even though it was produced at such an early stage in xbox's lifetime. Gameplay is simple ...
