Dead or Alive: Dimensions

Dead or Alive: Dimensions

Dead or Alive Dimensions is a solid debut for the series on 3DS and makes good use of the hardware to provide an entertaining experience. It features a ton of content, great visuals, and the controls very responsive as well. The Chronicles mode, which attempts to explain the entire Dead or Alive timeline in one story mode is a bit confusing at times and turning up the 3D slows down the framerate, but overall this is a great title for fans of DOA and newcomers alike.

Gameplay: Fast and fluid, provided you turn the 3D down.

Graphics: The game looks great, with and without the 3D.

Sound: The soundtrack is great and all the characters are fully voiced

Dead Or Alive 2

Dead Or Alive 2

Dead or Alive 2 is a much faster fighting game than other 3D titles, but with some practice it is a lot of fun. The game might appear to be very simple at first, but mastering all the techniques will take a while. The beautiful visuals will draw you in but there is more than enough gameplay to back it all.

Gameplay: Fast and frantic.

Graphics: Great compared to other fighters on the market.

Sound: Decent

Take On Emperor Caligula Himself In Gladiator Bastards For Android

Take On Emperor Caligula Himself In Gladiator Bastards For Android

A few years back, the Spartacus television series rekindled interest in gladiators with its brutal depiction of combat in the arena. Unfortunately, the show has long since run its course, but now a Finnish game company, Frak ltd., has stepped up to fill that void. Their debut title, Gladiator Bastards, is available now from the Play Store, so Android owners can spill the blood of their opponents on the warm sands of the Colosseum. Apple fans won’t have to wait too long to join in on the action either, as an iOS version is planned for this year too

Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!!

Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!!

Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!! has a lot to offer fans of the genre with its large roster of unique characters, interesting Arcanas and fast paced fighting. The character designs are great and it is only the pixalated sprites that let down the visuals somewhat. The fighting offers a lot of depth, but even novices can have fun by switching to Simple mode. For a great 2D fighter that is unlike anything else available on PC give Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!! a shot.

Gameplay: Fast, frantic and once you have mastered the moves, a lot of fun.

Graphics: Sprite are a little low-res and the 4:3 resolution makes things feel a bit cramped, but overall quite good.

Sound: Full Japanese voice acting and some nice albeit unremarkable background music

Super Comboman

Super Comboman

Super Comboman contains some great ideas, but is let down by less than stellar gameplay. Games such as Guacamelee! and Aces Wild have already demonstrated how great titles in the platform brawling genre can be, but Super Comboman doesn’t quite live up to expectations. The controls are the biggest source of frustration and the steep difficulty curve also feels more like a punishment than a challenge.

Gameplay: Lots of potential, but let down by frustrating controls and a steep difficulty curve.
Graphics: The sticker style visuals is an interesting and unique choice.
Sound: Not bad, but a little repetitive
