I've played DoA since the very first, back in the glory days of the PSX and always enjoyed it, same for DoA: Dimensions.
It plays really smooth and looks great, for those who know imagine DoA2 on the Dreamcast (graphics-wise) plus more fighters, more arenas, more gameplay modes and the added 3D-effect which makes it look even more amazing. You really get kinda sucked into the arena. Instead of just looking AT the screen you're looking INTO the screen like into a little cube, and inside there are little 3D-people beating each other. ;D
Wether you're a veteran or totally new to DoA, you'll instantly know your way around.
Fighting mechanics are great as always and you'll instantly have fun beating the crap out of your opponent, while the difficulty level goes up just right to keep up with it. Plus you have a list of moves on the touch screen, so no more going to the options menu in the middle of a fight just to check out a move you wanna try.
If you like fighting and have a 3DS, this is it! I ABSOLUTELY recommend this game. Just get it.
DoAD is an awesome edition to the Dead or Alive series. I've been a huge fan since the beginning of the DOA series.
The 3DS edition is by far the heftiest version in terms of added gameplay. From Tag Challanges, Arcade, the new Chronicle mode, Verses (Online&Local!),Survival, to the showcase, street pass, spot pass (receive free items from Tecmo!!) and taking pictures of figurines you'll collect in 3D.
If you've been a fan since beginning too, you'll instantly recognize alot of the cutscenes that are in the new Chronicle mode. I was very very happy to see them again, giving me great nostalgia of the good ol days. The cutscenes are shared along with the in-game graphic (which are beautiful 3DS graphics) cutscenes as well that move along the story, however, for whatever reason by Tecmo, are very static. I really don't mind this, but it would of been nice to see a little more interaction by the characters. The fmv cutscenes more than make up for this, in my opinion, because I couldnt get enough of how much they were putting into this from the previous series. Again, if you've been a huge fan as I have, you'll instantly recognize every scene being played out from the previous games.
Internet is where its at ofcourse, taking your skills online. I've had a great experience, mainly lag free, but I have had instances where there was lag to heavy lag, however we can't always expect perfect connection. It was only a few matches, so nothing to worry about. I'm quite happy with online mode. I haven't done any local yet. And I believe challenges for coop online, are only by friend. So if anyone wants to play coop challenge, please let me know! We can exchange codes.Read more ›
DoA Dimensions is a 3D Fighter that could be viewed as a "best of" collection of all previous DoA Fighters. It has the largest playable roster of any game in the series and a great Chronicle Mode which is simultaneously a DoA 1-4 Story Mode as well as a detailed Tutorial for basic and advanced gameplay concepts. I had no trouble learning the game and mastering its intricacies. The combat is incredibly fast paced and driven by reflexes and predicting your opponents actions; This is driven more so by the pronounced Rock-Paper-Scissors mechanic between Strikes, Holds, and Throws and the fact that properly timed counters become Hi-Counters which deal extreme damage and reward players for accurate prediction and good reflexes. Fighting your friends in DoA isn't about who has the most muscle trained fingers and memorized the hardest combos, it's about actual mind games and real reflexes. It's the one Fighter I've played where you will actually lose if you repeat your most damaging combos, unlike Marvel vs Capcom 3. This is because the risk of a devastating Hi-Counter Hold breaking your combo (and your face) is higher the more predictable you are, and playing creatively and unpredictably will get you farther. If you like speed, style, and actual mindgames, DoA Dimensions is your kind of game.
Also it looks amazing but with graphics this good it has already set the bar as the best looking game on the 3DS (at the time of this review.)
This title in the series is excellent and any worries i might have had about playing this on a handheld have vanished. This game is as beautiful graphically as it's 360 cousin and the sound/music is also top notch. The controls, for me at least, are smooth and tight and very responsive to my movements. It's great to see the DOA characters again alongside my favorites like Kasumi and Jann-Lee and i have not unlocked everything yet but from what i can see this title may have every DOA character included in this version.
I started with the chronlogical mode that serves as both a tutorial and looks to wrap up the previous DOA stories and i'm guessing will go into the new one dimensions but i have only played to doa 3 atm, it was really nostalgic seing all those old bosses, costumes and seeing those old storylines i havent seen for 5-10 years and i have not even touched arcade or any other mode yet, and with so much content to unlock like characters, costumes and figurines i can see myself playing this game for a LONG time to come.
This is so far one of the best 3ds titles available and gave me a reason to turn on my 3ds again and to keep it on for the coming weeks if not months. If you're on the fence i say it's defintely worth your money and time, just buy it now and support temco on their 3ds games and who knows maybe they will even bring ninja gaiden to the 3ds if this does well enough
