    Photo Dojo for the Nintendo DSiWare service is an extremely basic fighting game and nothing more. The game starts with taking photos of a person, objects or drawing with the Dsi/3DS camera and fitting them into specific frames (trust me, its a lot harder then you would realize) and then recording short audio clips with the DSi/3DS microphone and finish by giving them one of four fighting styles. Once you have completed at least 1 character, you need to create a stage to go with the character. After both of those tasks are complete you have a mere two modes to play, multiplayer versus which consists of a really bad control layout since two people need to use the same system to play and an ability to alter the game speed from normal to fast, in single player you fight random enemies until you lose or defeat 100 of them. Once the novelty of taking photos wares off, it becomes obvious how shallow and limited the game is. No single player versus mode? no difficulty settings? no ability to modify controls? no story mode even if it was as simplistic and generic as a world fighting tournament? With its limited content the game really feels like it should be no more than 50 cents, not a whole 1.99 plus tax. I honestly can't recommend this game there are other 1.99 games on the DSi/3DS shop with far more content and replayability than this. Expand

  1. It’s hard to knock Photo Dojo: its versatility and use of the DSi’s functions are superb, and the potential to create fighters based on friends, figures and anything else you can photograph is enough to forgive its simplicity and lack of gameplay modes.
  2. It may be enjoyable for some, but if you are looking for a fighting game, keep searching.
  3. It's daft, clever, simple and cheap. We want to see more DSiWare games like this one. [May 2010, p.90]
