Critic Reviews for Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers

One of the least-demanded Nintendo sequels of recent years has relatively high production values but it's still a dull, repetitive mix of tower defence and overly-simplistic action.

The frequent moments of action and speed are exciting, but interactions with characters are overlong, and every level feels like you're going through a new unskippable tutorial

Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers has some fantastic moments, but it more often succumbs to mundanity.

I can't fathom a situation where fans of the franchise will be disappointed with Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers. The music is fantastic, the world well-realized, Dillion has never looked better, and the shift away from predominantly touch controls is a wise decision. This is a solid adventure through and through, and it gives me slight hope we'll see other forgotten eShop gems get another chance to shine in the future.

Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers is clearly an improvement compared to its previous installments. However, this game turns to be a little bit boring and monotone after a few hours playing. If you enjoyed the previous games, you should try it, but don't expect too much.

Overall, the game is an intriguing mixture of different genres that come together to make for a weirdly satisfying treat.

This third arrival of The Red Flash to 3DS leaves the impression of being more of the same. The addition of Mii characters to the game feels not enough to justify it's full-price despite of its cheaper previous versions.

Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers brings a quality and enjoyable tower defense style game in its third installment in the series. Although the story and cutscenes tend to drag, the overall gameplay is great fun. Even if you've never played a game in the Dillon series, I recommend giving this a try.
