What Gamespot Users have to say about Dead or Alive 3

  • Review Score:8

    Dead or Alive 3 is a solid fighting game but it doesn't look as good as it could have.

    Dead or Alive 3 is a 3D fighting game from Tecmo and Team Ninja that not a whole lot can be said about. Dead or Alive 3's graphics are ok but don't really stand out that much. The arenas' that players will fight in ar... Read Full Review

    Your enjoyment of Dead or Alive 3 will depend on how you view the game and the fighting game genre as a whole. If you like fighters that can be played competitively, then DOA is trash. Counters are so incredibly easy... Read Full Review

    A well crafted and addicting game with a wealth of modes, but a poor Story Mode and no online play for this older title.

    There was no doubt that when this game came out it was one of the best looking console games ever made. It even surpassed Halo, which was drooled over for months as the Xbox’s launching point. Even today Dead or Alive ... Read Full Review

    very pretty, but a bit shallow.

    On the upside- -Oh my god, what a gorgeous game. Beautiful backgrounds (I especially like the lost world level with the multilevel 'islands' as it were), a great level of detail put into the move animations, and the wa... Read Full Review

    Could be better

    The game is graphically brilliant, and the use of the levels is absolutely cool, but it needs a little something. I mean, first all the modes are easy. The storylines for each character really don't inspire you to play i... Read Full Review

    This was the first DOA game that I have played and was very nicely done. Having not played anything beyond the old streetfighter, mortal kombat, time killers, etc. games of the 90's, this game proved to be a big jump up... Read Full Review
