Rated 10 out of 10 by dsully11 A puzzle with another dimension
This is a fun puzzle game. The story's amusing, the sounds okay, the extra content could've been added more, but where this game really shines is the actual gameplay. You become hooked to the "crushing" mechanic in the game, and it really changes how you could view things. It may seem at some points that the way through the puzzle is impossible, but just look around and find different perspectives, and you'll be fine. It does cause you to think differently. Now the sound in the game can get repetitive, but the cool weirdness o the music when you first hear it sticks with you. I also wished the extra content could've been better, but as a game goes, this is a nice pickup for only $20.
Rated 6 out of 10 by MagickBK An interesting puzzler
Crush 3D is a pretty interesting platform-puzzler. The graphics aren't spectacular, but are exactly what they need to be, as the only thing this game needs to stand on is the Crush mechanic. Gameplay revolves around being able to move about the 3D puzzle levels, and 'crush' them into 2D side-scroller or top-down views in order to figure out how to get past obstacles and the few enemies you encounter. It isn't a particularly long game, but considering the pre-owned price is no more than most phone apps, it is a solid pick-up.

This game is a great challenge, the story is good and amusing. The controls are very simple. The sound is great, but the music gets boring soon after I started playing. It uses all the buttons the 3DS has, which is very good, and the game needs them. The only main complaint I have is that there is no option to create your own levels and share them with your friends. You can, though, share stuff via streetpass, but people never really do that (I wonder why). The graphics are really nice, (Danny, I think, looks better in 3D), and the 3D helps sometimes, not often, but there are levels... The game runs smoothly, and really involves you to think, which is very good. In the last levels, the hints don't really help too much, other than those, the hint system works pretty well. The parts that show the story, though, are pretty much in 2D, their mouths don't move, people nod or have their mouths open forever, so I think that could have been better. In regular DS games, I wouldn't complain about that, but in 3DS games, such as Dead or Alive Dimensions, the game shows outstanding graphics and detail. Detail, I honestly don't care, but seeing the graphics, it could have used a little work. The graphics are pretty good in the actual playable levels, and the detail is really good, but the levels don't have like, any detail, so it's hard to complain about that...

Rated 4 out of 10 by Chad78 CRUSH3D Falls Flat...
This is a remake of a PSP game from 2007. They updated the graphics and added some bonus art and pallet swaps for the main character, and that's about it. I got it thinking it would be like Super Mario 3D Land - but it's more like Portal - but not anywhere near as good as either game. it's boring, and repetitive and there's no real compelling reason to move forward. Bottom line - nothing to see here, folks - move along, move along...
Rated 0 out of 10 by LastingFury Sounds like a Great Game!
The idea of "crushing" to get from place to place seems fun, and I am a person that loves brain puzzlers (like Picross 3D (for DS)). Just switching from 2D to 3D seems like fun within itself, but this game seems to put the technique to good use. Helping Danny escape from some unknown place by methods known only (apparently) to Danny, we all can help some unfortunate kid find his way around, and out of the nightmare!
Rated 4 out of 10 by rockstar321 A frustrating puzzle in another demenison.
Crush 3D is not that good or bad either. it's just frustrating, Super mario bros 2 lost levels style frustrating. the story and plot are okay, I can barley remember it though because it's been like a year and a half since I picked up and played the game. but the gameplay introduces a new mechanic that fully takes advantage of the 3DS's 3d feature, which means that you can use a move called "crush" and turn 3D intro 2D and back again. This really isin't that original, super paper mario did that first. So you have to Crush and get though the level and make it through the door and you made it though the level, sound's easy right? WELL IT'S NOT. sometimes levels are huge even ginormous and you have no idea where to go and it can be frustrating, and other times, there's something in a level that can help you get to the door like a giant soda can you can use as a step but if you push it off the edge, then you're done. and there are 4 zones in the game, a city, a beach, a circus, and a nursery. these levels are creative but why only 4, the should have done what the sonic series did and put more zones that were all different, like sonic 2 on sega Genesis, it had 11 zones and they were all different. where is the forest zone, where's the egyption desert stage, where's the haunted castle stage, so much is missing from this game that is horrible. I still like some things about the game like the 3D effect, which I consider the 2nd best on the system (1st goes to super mario 3d land) and I also think that the concept was interesting, but this is an overall okay game, I recomend you get super paper mario instead, it's like this game, just better.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Fennec Remake of an old favorite?
This appears to be a 3DS remake of an old PSP favorite, and while this seems good, I must comment that the original was far too short and had no replay value. As news on this game develops, I'd hope to see more levels, a level editor, and more content in-general. If this stuff is included, I'll definitely be buying it!
Rated 0 out of 10 by Jaymzblah Great Demo
After playing the demo for this game, I'm in love. You only get three levels in the demo, but they where challengeing and fun. Switching from 3D to 2D is pretty cool, makeing bridges out of platforms that are unreachable when "CRUSHED" was awesome.
