    This game knows what it wants to do, and it executes it flawlessly. The loss of characters and some of the more enjoyable mini-games is certainly a bummer, but let’s be honest, that is never why anyone played this game.

    If you're coming here for the gameplay, forget Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 as nothing has evolved on that topic for the last decade. If you want to peep at sexy girls, you're in the right place as everything was made with this goal in mind. A game to store on the ecchi shelf.

    Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 does nothing to hide its fanservice nature; besides that the product is still fun to play and able to exercise a certain fascination. But little or nothing has changed since the old episodes, with a clearly reduced budget that has even led to cuts.

    The game design is as flat as the pretty ladies are curvy. A totally irrelevant collection of minigames with a hint of Tamaogotchi. But not even the boob bonus can save this beach vacation.

    In its current state, Dead or Alive: Xtreme 3 is a nice game to relax and unwind with, but beyond that it’s a very disappointing and lazy entry into the Xtreme series.

    A game with a lot of sexy fan service, and good graphism, but a real lack of action based content that force you to "farm" to get all the swimsuits.

    The whole package feels extremely light on content, and even a bit rushed. With reused assets, features missing that were in previous titles, added microtransactions, a lack of characters, and lots of grinding, it is hard to recommend this to even the most titty-starved gamer. You'd be better served watching videos of the spicier scenes online or just going to any number of free porn sites, thus saving yourself the time, money, and brain cells that would otherwise be spent on this.

It would be better if you only reinforce the content. Expand

    Pros:
    Very relaxing game. If I were to sum it up it would be "Tropical private resort vacation simulator."
    Minigames feel like an arcade
    Pros:
    Very relaxing game. If I were to sum it up it would be "Tropical private resort vacation simulator."
    Minigames feel like an arcade kind of experience. Not deep but still fun.
    Something about this game feels like it should be on a SEGA console.
    Soundtrack is fun and relaxing, just like the scenery.
    Bathing suit collection options are diverse and thoughtful. They aren't just string thongs or boring lingerie.
    Other DoA tourists on the island seem to have their own individual personalities at the gambling games.

    Cons:
    Graphics while beautiful and smooth could be better.
    Could benefit from just a bit more depth in game play and more characters.

    Overall:
    Bumping from a high 9 to a 10 based on unfair mainstream reviews. Yes the game is meant to be sexy, but it is mostly tasteful unlike something over the top like Senran Kagura. Haters gonna hate and teenagers gonna teenage, but make no mistake this is not a porn game. If you want to kick back and relax to a game for a few minutes, put it down and come back later just to absorb a bit of the virtual island life, this may be the escape for you. If you don't believe me, let me offer you this tidbit: My girlfriend recommended this game to me because she loves the series.

    10/10 will gladly play the next one.
    No Jetskis. I hear those were great.

    The user review by belts echoes many of the things I would have said in my review. This is an excellent entry into the franchise, and itThe user review by belts echoes many of the things I would have said in my review. This is an excellent entry into the franchise, and it largely exists because Tecmo Koei listened to fan feedback from DOAX2's stumbles. If you've played an Xtreme title, then you already know what to expect. What I find most disturbing about DOAX3's release is not the gratuitous sexualized content that became the focus of its western press, but the biased and vendetta-driven journalism surrounding it here in the west. Thus far, the "professional" reviews have been highly subjective, presented offensive speech that has little to do with the game in question, and even contained blatant inaccuracies concerning the game's content. Having spent nearly 40 hours with DOAX3, I can honestly say it is the most refined and enjoyable game in the series, and the core volleyball mechanics return to the simple yet nuanced controls that made DOAX1 a hit. Believe it or not, these things are important to Xtreme fans, and while the gorgeous graphics and body physics may add to the allure, they would not be enough without solid gameplay to keep us grinding. Keep in mind that this is an Asian release with English subtitles and has not officially been released in the west. Professional review sites don't typically bother with imports, so beware of those that may make an exception for DOAX3, especially since many seemed poised to "take a stand" against the game before it was even released. Thanks for the hard work, Koei Tecmo. Expand

    While it is a shame that they took off the jet-ski mini-game and cut off some features, it's still a decent entry in the Xtreme franchise. ForWhile it is a shame that they took off the jet-ski mini-game and cut off some features, it's still a decent entry in the Xtreme franchise. For the amount of content you get, it IS fairly overpriced. But, if you just appreciate it for what it is, then it is a very enjoyable game. Of course, most people will buy this for the eye candy, but the game has its various other charms and can sometimes get addicting as you try to collect all the swimsuits (though it will also get tedious as you go for the Platinum). All in all, it's not the best Xtreme title, but it's still a good purchase for DOA/Xtreme fanatics. Expand

    It's DOAX3. Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is a fan service game and there's no denying that. If you're wanting to play and watch simple minigamesIt's DOAX3. Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is a fan service game and there's no denying that. If you're wanting to play and watch simple minigames with your favorite DOA girls than this is it for you.
    What I don't understand is why the game hasn't been released to the West. It's really just girls in bikinis. It's nothing special.

    This game wasn't worth the outrage back in 2015. My critique of the game is not because of the objectification of women. But how the game wasThis game wasn't worth the outrage back in 2015. My critique of the game is not because of the objectification of women. But how the game was programmed to reward you very little, making you grind endlessly. You'd want to get the swimsuit that the girls will wear for your pleasure, but they're expensive in-game and gaining money as Owner Mode require doing missions that doesn't reward you much.

    Which brings me to the Casino section where you can gain tons of money, if you're lucky. That's where the RNG becomes **** You can just save scum until you get big money. But if the game's RNG felt like being an ass, you will be save scumming for almost an hour. It gets tiring. I would give the game a lower score but THANK GOD for save scumming.

    If you want to get the game just for the fun of watching girls in bikinis and doing the activities, go ahead. There's nothing wrong. But it gets bland and tiresome doing the same activity.
