10. Dead or Alive: Dimensions
Good: Funny use of the Accelerometer, Internet Play, countless of combo’s, language options.
Bad: No Download Play, Accelerometer can get very instable while making photo’s, the story is simple.
Dead or Alive is a fighting game, with a lot of combo’s to make.
With Dimensions, Tecmo Koei gives 3D to the game.
Wait…we already have Super Street Fighter on the 3DS!
That’s right, but SSF is just a port from the consoles, while Dead or Alive is a completely fresh game.
This game is very unique to the way of language settings.
We have played the Japanese version, but we can select more languages for Voices, Subtitles, and Menu’s.
Voices are in Japanese and English only, Subtitles and Menu’s can be set on Spanish, Italian, French, and German too.
Aside of the languages, there are a couple of more options.
Aside of the options, there are a couple of modes.
Chronicle is the story mode.
The weak point is it’s simplicity, and the scenes look very Barbie-like.
Other than that, it’s still fun to beat it.
There’s Arcade, where you fight against AI’s, while you try to get the best time.
Survival is mostly the same as Arcade, but without all the Win/Lose/Get-Ready scenes.
Tag Challenge is a battle with multiple characters at the same time.
Free Play is a battle however you like.
Local Play is wireless multiplayer.
A weak point is the lack of 3DS Download Play functionalities.
Internet Play is the same thing, but it goes through the World Wide Web.
Throwdown is the same, but through StreetPass.
Also, Showcase allows you to create a setting with figurines, and make 3D Photo’s of it.
Fight Record shows you your statistics.
And the Options are the settings.
Overall, it’s a great game, but the lack of 3DS Download Play is the biggest weak point of this game.
