"Dead or Alive: Dimensions is a solid entry into the classic fighting series whether you're a fan or series newcomer. It's just as fast, responsive and enjoyable as past iterations, with far more balanced movesets and counters; a visually appetising, impressive fighter particularly for a game released in 3DS' launch period."

"As familiar as Dead or Alive can be, a solid fighter in its own right, and a genuine alternative to SSFIV 3D, especially if you're new to the fighting genre."

"The best game currently on the 3DS and the best portable fighting game ever made. It's no less than the pocket fighter of choice."

"3D or not, Dimensions is a great-looking fighting game with heaps of content to explore. Its fighting system offers a unique and more accessible alternative to that of Super Street Fighter IV, while still giving advanced players plenty to dig into. Its limited online play and impenetrable story might deter those after a more complete fighting experience, but executing well-timed combos and knocking opponents off ledges to their doom is so much fun in Dead or Alive: Dimensions that you'll be too busy throwing punches to care."

" The game may lack the overall polish that players saw in Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition, but Dead or Alive Dimensions is an excellent choice for someone who is looking for a strong and generally satisfying fighting title early in the 3DS system’s cycle. The three available dimensions are put to good use and the Chronicle mode does a better job than ever of turning the story behind Dead or Alive into a tale of substance… even if sometimes it falters in surprising ways. There will quite possibly be better options for fighting fans throughout the coming years, but at least for now, Tecmo’s latest is a solid purchase even if you already own Capcom’s attempt."

"Dead or Alive Dimensions is a really fun fighting game, one that this old Street Fighter loyalist has really grown to love."

"Dead or Alive: Dimensions should be thought of less as a compilation and more as a love letter to all the DoA fans. Though it has a few shortcomings, such as cut-scenes made of stills, the overall package is jam-packed with content. Loads of modes, plenty of unlockable extra goodies, and a very functional multiplayer make Dimensions a series that not only fans must buy, but any gamer with even the slightest itch for a quality portable fighting game. If you’ve been waiting for the next must-buy 3DS title, this is it, folks."

"In closing the fight mechanic is as solid as any other Dead or Alive title I have ever played and while button mashing will get you through most challenges the game has to offer the real enjoyment comes from learning the moves and chaining your combo’s together."

"Dead or Alive Dimensions is a great hand-held game, one of the best on the 3DS, that manages to replicate the experience of the console versions flawlessly, and even manages to improve on the long established formula by adding a new take on the standard Arcade, Tag challenge, and Survival modes. Fans of fighting games with a 3DS have no excuse for not owning this game."

"Dead or Alive Dimensions is a very competent but simple fighter that is sure to appeal to anyone of all ages, but it’s important to consider just what you want out of a fighter before diving in. Still, it’s hard to imagine anyone who likes the genre not liking this entry, as I have no problems recommending it."

"Thankfully, it’s worth it. Dead or Alive remains a sexy, entertaining series, and this new game is a true highlight in the series. While we wait and see whether the eShop can deliver, and for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time to be released, this is the game that will tide you over."
