Dead or Alive 2

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: “Wow, look at the jiggle! And the gameplay to back it up!” That was one of the first things I said when I played this on the Dreamcast demo disc. Numerous rentals occurred thereafter, and eventually I buckled and bought the game. Soon though, the Dreamcast was on its way out, PS2 was coming in, and the Dreamcast got traded off for what looked like greener pastures.

  • Excerpt: Tecmo's Dead or Alive was released back in 1996 for both the Sega Saturn and the Sony PlayStation. Being based on Sega's own Model 2 engine (which was previously used for Daytona USA, Fighting Vipers, and Virtua Fighter 2), it was no surprise that this game looked like its arcade predecessor on the Saturn.

  • Excerpt: (Model 2, Saturn) made good use of the Virtua Fighter 2 engine.  With Dead or Alive 2 (DOA2), Team Ninja decided to make use of Sega's current arcade standard -- the Naomi board.  Naturally, a Dreamcast conversion was inevitable even though Tecmo denied it for a while.

  • Excerpt: It's finally here. The game that many believed would be the first serious challenger to Soul Calibur for the title of "Best Dreamcast 3D fighter" has finally hit store shelves. Is it the next gigantic hit for the Dreamcast or is this a case of a game that couldn't possibly live up to the hype? The answer falls somewhere in the middle. The graphics most certainly live up to the hype. Undoubtedly, Dead or Alive 2 is one of the most attractive console games ever produced.

  • Summary: Is Dead or Alive 2 the best fighting game on the Dreamcast? It depends on your own personal preference. Personally, I think Soul Calibur's crown is safe and sound.
  • Pros: Great graphics, gameplay, sound, and style. Four-player Tag Battle rocks.
  • Cons: Minor graphical quirks, gameplay issues. Lack of single player appeal and poor interface.

  • Excerpt: An "older" title still going strong and proving popular for its sheer wonderfulness, Tecmo's Dead or Alive 2 offers what the Electric Playground's Scott Steinberg refers to as "a kick ass way to kick ass.

  • Summary: Dead or Alive 2 ist neben Soul Calibur DAS Beat´em Up Highlight auf Dreamcast und besticht vor allem durch seine absolut geniale Optik. Schade nur, dass der Kampf gegen die CPU schnell seinen Anreiz verliert, so dass die Langzeitmotivation etwas leidet. Trotzdem sollten sich Anhänger der Kringelbox das Spiel auf keinen Fall entgehen lassen...

  • Conclusion: Não há como negar a excelência nos quesitos entretenimento e tecnicismo de Dead or Alive 2. Definitivamente um clássico do gênero de luta que coloca a Tecmo, no mínimo, no mesmo patamar das consagradas lâminas de Soul Calibur e da jogabilidade refinada das séries Tekken e Street Fighter. Pessoalmente, prefiro Dead or Alive 2 pelos nenéns semi-nus.
