STAFF REVIEW of Dead or Alive 3 (Xbox)


Friday, November 23, 2001.
by Stephen Cameron



Dead or Alive 3 Box art What can I say? I love fighting games, I love good graphics, and I love women! This is an all inclusive package. The levels are big, bold and beautiful. You jaw just drops when you see this game for the first time. You can see that this game is influenced by real kung-fu movies like "Drunken Master", "Crouching Tiger", to name a few. This game definately captures the martial arts vibe in a HUGE way!


The controls are very responsive, which helps a lot with this type of game. The movements are accurate, not sloppy. As far as the storyline, it's very weak, if you are looking for a deep emersive story, it's not here. But, it has a hint of a story...I don't think this was the object of the developers, to make a fighting game with a BIG storyline to it....besides when you are fighting there is no time to absorb a story. Stay Alive (Isn't the title name a little bit like that?) !!!


Wow, wow, wow and WOW! Visual the best looking game on the Xbox at this point in time, given they are the first ones out of the gate on the Xbox. It will be a while until some other game tops this one. The visuals have a anime-like look to them....I really don't think the developer were trying to make it look real. Simply put AMAZING GRAPHICS!


The sound...what can I tell ya?!?! It's people fighting, I noticed that if you slam someone into a wooden door or wall, it sounds just like it (Like I've done that before...) !!! The environment sounds created a really good sensation of vastness, especially on the cliff level.


Suggestions:
Online fighting! Head-to-head matchs would be nice. Don't fire the graphics guy, nor the programmer.


Overall: 8.0 / 10
Gameplay: 8.0 / 10
Visuals: 10.0 / 10
Sound: 8.0 / 10
