Dead Or Alive 5

 

For most of its existence, the Dead or Alive series has been mostly about crazily-proportioned women and completely ridiculous menu options in regard to those women. Oh, sure, there were serviceable fighting games surrounding all that, but that's been...

Lack of understanding the story and dialogue won't interfere with your enjoyment of the game ; Deep fighting system ; Great looking characters and environments

The story and dialogue are nuts ; Menus get a bit convoluted

If you like fighting games, give it a shot. You won't be disappointed.

I don't envy Team Ninja its mountainous task in creating another addition to the long-lived Dead or Alive franchise, particularly without the keen supervision of series creator Tomonobu Itagaki. This is the first instalment to be released without his...

With the skimpy clothing and annoying characters, I wouldn't blame you for wanting to dismiss the Dead or Alive franchise. This is a series that looks like it's specifically designed to appeal to teenage boys and nothing else. And yet, after five...

You might not know it from the box, but Dead or Alive 5 is one of the most baffling games of the year. It's full of weird editing, ninja clones and large breasted women. And that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of what makes this game so...

The soul of a warrior may take upon different forms and lead one down different paths, but the fire and passion for victory that burns within is a constant reminder that every warrior must fight in order to achieve their goal. Tempered with both beauty...

In the last four years, the competition in the fighting game genre has grown massively, and I'm not just talking about the developers and their latest efforts to capture a wide audience. It's the players, too, and the rising fame of streaming sites...

There's nothing really wrong with DOA5 and it's certainly an improvement over its predecessors, but I was expecting more from the first Dead or Alive game to come out in nearly seven years. I found the modes that are included for casual and offline...

Dead or Alive 5 is a deceptive game: behind all the gorgeous women and explosive areas rests a dynamic and enjoyable fighter.

Complex and hard-hitting fighting mechanics ; Stable online play ; Smooth character animations

Poorly executed educational mode ; Sorting replays is a chore

Dead or Alive 5 Xbox 360 Review

 

The Dead or Alive series has always been considered as a gentle initiation into the genre for the less experienced fighting game player, though its reputation as nothing more than a button basher is unfair, as, in reality, there's a huge gulf between...

Dead or Alive 5 may have some disappointments, though its fresh mechanics enrich the already slick combat system and grant a further layer of depth and substance to the series, though it still manages to remain welcoming to less experienced fighting...

Dead or Alive 5 is a deceptive game: behind all the gorgeous women and explosive areas rests a dynamic and enjoyable fighter.

Complex and hard-hitting fighting mechanics ; Stable online play ; Smooth character animations

Poorly executed educational mode ; Sorting replays is a chore

For players new to the Dead or Alive series, the best place to start is the game's Story mode, which doubles as its main educational mode. In brief, series veteran Helena has assumed control of DOATEC, a corporation that does something and is hosting...
