PlayStation 2Game Vortex (Dec 07, 2002)
What BR3 DOES have is really cool, interesting characters and the whole 'beast change' aspect. There's strategy that can be hinged on the beast abilities. In addition, the control scheme is different than most fighting games; it actually has different types of control for different characters (well, beyond the basic kick, punch, block and beastorize). When all is said and done, the game is fun and somewhat addictive. (Just make sure you don't have the difficulty set too high - or you'll get frustrated with the game.) Bloody Roar 3 isn't 'state - of - the - art', but it does offer a unique angle on the fighting genre.

Regardless of that, if you want story line, do not play a fighting game. If you want top-notch action, with a fantasy theme, BR3 might be your best alternative to what is available on the market. It is a good fighting game with a few decent surprises that will keep you entertained.

In the end my personal experience with Bloody Roar 3 turned out quite positive, as of course you can see I gave the game a solid 8.3, and it certainly does deserve it. Bloody Roar 3 is an excellent visual showcase for the Playstation 2's particle effects production. Bloody Roar 3 is one of the most pleasing eye-candy experiences I've come across. Other than that the game plays furiously fast, the action never skips a beat and is flowing continuously. It'd be stupid of me not to recommend Bloody Roar 3 as a purchase, because this game is simply fast and fun, casual fighting game fans will enjoy it, but those who swear only to Tekken will not. If you're being skeptical, at least rent the game to see for yourself.

So, you may be wondering, for all this complaining I'm doing, why the moderately good score? Plain and simple, Bloody Roar is fun, and the better look and dynamic camera switches have made it more entertaining. There's plenty of old-school juggling and corner trapping to be had, and some of the best supers you'll ever see. Also, as I said earlier, it's just such a cool idea.

The PS2 has been barren of A fighting games since launch, and while Bloody Roar 3 is a refreshing change of pace, it doesn't offer anything that wasn't featured in its first two incarnations. Newcomers will be pleased, but for rabid fans, this is a mute Roar.
PlayStation 2IGN (Jun 26, 2001)
The fighting cognoscenti may scoff at various bits of questionable gameplay here and there, then, but the rest of us can just snicker and fire off another Beast Drive. Give it a rental at least, and don't be surprised if you come back for more.
PlayStation 2Gamezone (Germany) (Apr 26, 2001)
Spielerisch kann der Titel leider nicht ganz mit den beiden Konkurrenten Tekken TT und Dead or Alive mithalten. Zu unorganisiert und hektisch wirken die Kämpfe. Nicht selten arten die Fights auch in einfaches "so schnell wie möglich auf die Buttons Gehämmere" aus. Auch hat sich am relativ einfachen 2D-Gameplay nichts verändert. Im Grunde sind zwar Sidesteps in die dritte Dimension möglich, im Kampf kommen diese aber mangels Zeit kaum zum Einsatz. Irgendwie vermisse ich neue Elemente und Innovationen. Immerhin könnt ihr den Gegner in einigen Stages durch gewisse Begrenzungen befördern. Erwartet aber nicht solche Aktionen wie bei Dead or Alive 2, wo ihr auf mehreren Ebenen kämpfen könnt!

Tällaisenaankin Bloody Roaria kuitenkin kannattaa kokeilla. Hirviöt ovat mukava lisä perinteiseen potkintagenreen, voipa niiden käytöllä oikein taktikoidakin, ja varsinkin peliseuran löytyessä huvia irronnee ainakin joksikin aikaa. Yksinpeliä sen sijaan ei oikein voi suositella kuin niille jotka syövät Tekkenin aamiaisekseen.

Mit Bloody Roar 3 hat Hudson ein solides Prügelspiel abgeliefert, das sich angenehm von den üblichen Beat'em ups abhebt. Leider bestehen noch einige spielerische Schwächen, so dass es nicht ganz zum erhofften Lückenfüller für die Zeit bis Tekken 4 und dem neuesten Virtua Fighter wurde.
PlayStation 2PlayFrance (Apr 07, 2003)
Bloody Roar 3 parvient largement à tirer son épingle du jeu face aux deux monstres que sont Tekken Tag Tournament et Dead Or Alive 2. On appréciera ses combats dynamiques, sa maniabilité parfaite et ses graphismes de qualité. Une très bonne alternative qui vous séduira forcément grâce à son approche pour le moins " Capcomesque " de la baston, bref c'est du tout bon !
PlayStation (Aug 28, 2001)
Un excellent titre qui prolonge à merveille la célèbre série. Le gameplay attrayant, l'originalité des combats et leur excellente réalisation, tout plaide en faveur de Bloody Roar 3.
PlayStation 2ZTGameDomain (Jun 22, 2005)
As I played through this game it was fairly easy to see where the games ups and downs were. Ups are the graphics and the music (what's new right?). Downs are character depth and gameplay...If you're really looking for a good fighting game I would advise getting Dead or Alive 2 Hardcore or Tekken Tag, but if you have those already and you're a fan of the BR series then go ahead and give it a try, I advise renting before buying! Trippyliquid...trippin out!
PlayStation 2Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault) (Jul 31, 2001)
While above average in its visuals, sound effects and AI, the stripped down gameplay of Bloody Roar 3 continues to hold this series back from the acclaim it deserves. With such an amazing mechanic as the shape-changing driving the action and selling games, the fighting mechanics need to better represent the changing style of a combatant who’s part-man and part-lizard. When, and if, this series manages to add some much-needed depth to their character’s natures, we’ll finally see the realized potential of this series. As it stands now, this first appearance on the PS2 offers only improved defensive maneuvers and graphics beyond its predecessors. If you’re a huge fan of the series, or looking for a simpler fighting game, then I’d strongly suggest that you pick up Bloody Roar 3, but if deep gameplay is the butter on your arcade fighter bread, then you’d be better off taking your battles somewhere else.
PlayStation 2Super Play (Sweden) (Aug, 2001)
Men det är klart, gillar du tanken på kaniner som slåss mot skalbaggar så tänker jag inte hindra dig från att köpa Bloody Roar 3. Tvärtom är det ett välkommet tillskott till beat 'em up-biblioteket på PlayStation 2.
PlayStation 2PSM (Aug, 2001)
Despite it's prominent flaws, Bloody Roar 3 is still a solid title. If you're a fan of the series or simply have an itch for a new fighter, you shouldn't be disappointed with this purchase.
PlayStation (Sep 24, 2001)
Bloody Roar 3 ist zwar ein ganz unterhaltsames Beat`em-Up, aber weder Präsentation, noch Umfang, noch Gameplay können so richtig überzeugen. Das Verwandlungs-Feature ist zwar auch beim dritten Teil der Serie noch ganz spaßig, das unausgewogene Kampfsystem und die durchwachsene KI sorgen jedoch dafür, dass die meisten Begegnungen recht oberflächlich und hektisch ablaufen. Auch wenn sich dieses Manko im Zwei-Spieler-Modus relativiert, ändert sich am eigentlichen Kampfablauf recht wenig. Die interaktiven Kampfarenen sind zwar ganz nett, können denen eines Dead or Alive 2 aber nicht das Wasser reichen. Wer gerne einmal als Werwolf oder Fledermausdame kämpfen möchte, ist mit dem schon etwas betagten PSone-Vorgänger genauso gut, wenn nicht sogar besser beraten.
PlayStation 2Armchair Empire, The (Jul 26, 2001)
When compared to all of the fighters out there like Soul Calibur, Tekken, and Capcom's cornucopia of fighting games, Bloody Roar 3 just doesn't stand up. If you're looking for a new game in this genre, keep on looking because this one isn't worth it.
PlayStation 2Gaming Age (Mar 05, 2002)
So is Bloody Roar 3 worth the money? With fighters like Virtua Fighter 4 and Tekken 4 on the horizon, there is beginning to be little room for games like Bloody Roar 3. Bottom line is, definitely rent this one before you buy.
PlayStation 2GameSpot (Jun 26, 2001)
Given the strides in 3D fighter design made by companies like Namco, Sega, and Tecmo, there really is no reason for anyone to pay much attention to Bloody Roar 3, aside from its bold visual stylings and faux heavy metal soundtrack. If you like the Bloody Roar series already, though, then this might be right up your alley. But if you like fighting games for their technique and depth of design, then this certainly won't hold your attention.
PlayStation 2games xtreme (Oct 03, 2001)
The only saving grace in BR3 are the graphics for the characters, special effects, nice and flashy and the nice sounds but that’s it, the animation is nice and fluid but the whole thing falls flat with the resort to button pushing to win tactics. So my advice is unless you’re really desperate, give this game a miss. Unless you like mindless button pushing and a overly simple move system?
PlayStation 2Game Revolution (Jan 07, 2001)
So there you have it: An average fighting game cleverly disguised as an animal combat game. It's great for those wild full moon parties, but once the sun comes up, it's back to normal.
PlayStation 2Thunderbolt Games (Jun 02, 2005)
It’s sad to watch as the Bloody Roar series goes to hell. It has a decent gimmick to make it stand out among other fighters. If only the minds behind this game actually sat down and figured out how to implement the gimmick properly, it could have the makings of something great. But in the meantime, Bloody Roar 3 stands average at best, a last resort for fighting game fans looking to supplement their collection. Despite having a decent concept, the game falls flat against the competition. Maybe it’s the lack of challenge. Or maybe it’s the original combat system. Whatever it is, it makes this game reek of poor quality. As I turn away in disgust, I’m hoping that something good will happen for this series. Someday, Bloody Roar will come back as a force to be reckoned with in the gaming community. But as far as this game goes, skip it. Unless you’re an animal lover, you won’t be missing anything.
