    Sony passed this for the PSN with its $10 price tag!.. Dota2 is free to play... whats happening? Whilst triple A titles are going free to play flash games are starting to cream fat stacks? The world is a crazy place homes!..

    Great game to play versus friends, plain and simple. The single player is severely lacking though, as you can cut through the story with each character around ~15 minutes each if you are good enough with no incentive to replay anything.

By no means a bad game of course, but the game is rather hollow. I would have rather paid $3 than $10. Expand

    I was sort of hyped to get this game, but the novelty wears off pretty quickly. The problem with the game is with the balance of the characters. If you just pick the players "Dive" and "Kick" you can have some fun and balanced matches, but if you pick all of the other random ones you can't help but feel like you have an extreme advantage or disadvantage depending on which character youI was sort of hyped to get this game, but the novelty wears off pretty quickly.

If you just pick the players "Dive" and "Kick" you can have some fun and balanced matches, but if you pick all of the other random ones you can't help but feel like you have an extreme advantage or disadvantage depending on which character you choose. I was expecting most of the characters to play more similar to each other since the game has such a simple nature to it. Some might appreciate the fact that the characters are so dramatically different, I just feel that people might learn to exploit certain moves because they are so overpowered (have too much reach). It has its moments where it can be fun, but be warned that it's not meant to replace your favorite fighting game, it's more of a novelty than a full fledged game. At least you get the Vita and the PS3 version for the price of a single purchase. It might make for a fun party game. Either that, or people might insist that I just load up Street Fighter IV instead. Expand

  1. A fighting game with subpar graphics and just one attack (the rotating helicopter screwdriver kick... no just kidding, it is the dive kick) should not get more than 10/100, but it actually is pretty fun. When playing multiplayer. [October 2013 p.90]

    In the right environment and with the right people, Divekick offers some fun. But the lack of online lobbies drastically limits those opportunities. Like most novelties, the fun of Divekick is short-lived.

    It is unfortunate that there’s not a better single-player mode, and more unfortunate that Divekick’s cultural insensitivity can be downright cringe-worthy, but it’s still a successful experiment in simplified fighting.
