I liked the original DoA when it came to the PS the best out of them all. So many costumes and simple fun gameplay.

i never got into the DOA games but maybe this way i can get into the games with none other than the first in the series with amazing new graphics,its going to be one of my dreams come true because now i will be able to have the DOA girls in my pocket! lol



InsanityPika said:

I can't wait! I've always been a fan of DOA! The graphics look pretty cool. But I guess I'll have to see for myself whenever I get both the 3DS as DOAD. I wonder how Samus will be in the game. Still can't wait.

Geez. Why must it be so expensive. Why must I be young too! TT^TT

Dead or Alive Dimensions;
Cons: Lame Cutscenes, no Samus. (There was a Metroid level,
so Y NO Zero Suit? :3
Pros: Fighting, Ninjas and funbags in three dimensions.



bonesy91 said:

OK I gotta say it, this game is just not that great... even with all the different modes it's still just a button mashing fighting game with absolutely nothing exciting about it.
The "Story" Mode is a complete mess. Collecting trophies is about as fun as sticking your hands into a wasp nest. Fighting... that's it. I mean I'm new to Dead or alive but this is just a sad game. Good graphics, but sad, sad game.

cons: no custom levels? no custom characters? Matillion says: Cons: Lame Cutscenes, no Samus. (There was a Metroid level,
