Definitely Worth Checking Out

Dead or Alive Dimensions on the 3DS is one of the prettiest titles on the system yet. If you're familiar with DOA, there's pretty much nothing to explain then. The game is straight forward fighting action with a punch, kick, block/hold and throw button. Gameplay feels very easy since anyone can button mash but it goes pretty deep if you like analyzing in-depth details like frames/counter holds. There's quite a few modes here such as Survival, Tag Challenge, Training, Photo Album/Figurine collection, Arcade, Online/Local battles and the all new Chronicle mode which is basically the story mode of the game that chronicles the past DOA titles to fix up some unexplained stuff. But I have to say, the story is pretty bad. Nothing interesting and it doesn't really make much sense, not to mention the voice acting is quite horrible. All the characters from the past titles are included in this title making this the biggest roster in a DOA game to date. 3D effects are very nice and give you a sense of depth in the arenas and there's some pop-up effects that will wow you. Sad thing is, the framerate takes a little dip when you switch the 3D slider on but it isn't that much of a deal breaker. All in all, DOAD is a very entertaining fighting game that will satisfy any fighting fan on the 3DS.

This is my first time playing a DOA game and going through the different modes was really entertaining and an excellent way of learning to play and getting to know the whole story behind the characters.

Plot: I used to think that DOA was just another tournament centered fighting game, but now I am actually hooked up in the whole DOATEC's evil plot involving ninjas and voluptuous girls fighting on multi leveled frays. The Chronicle is probably the best part of the game as it takes you through the story of previous DOA games with beautiful videos and training sequences mixed with entertaining fights using franchise's main characters.

Graphics: Awesome. I didn't know the 3DS was capable of such detailed modeling and the landscapes and levels are really amusing to look at. Of course, a lot of players will also find amusing to give a look at the gallery of 3D girls in the Showcase. But then, that too is really well developed.

Sound: Well, the voice over is alright. The music is not memorable, except for the Chronicle parts. Sound effects are what anyone could expect from a fighting game.

Gameplay: Excellent. DOA is a fighting game with a lot of interesting mechanics to master and a lot of variety with all the different characters available to play. However the bad news is that a button masher could easily take on a master player with good luck and well placed kicking through multi-leveled frays. The game plays out excellent on the 3DS and the use of the Touch Movelist adds a lot to the experience (tough it also helps button mashers).

Overall, this game should be well received by any fighting game fan and I would recommend buying it to flesh out the whole experience. I'm not giving it a 10 because the levels did get a bit repetitive and the music could've been more memorable, but I believe anyone can put that aside and give it a try.
