Dead Or Alive 5

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Remember when Dead or Alive wasn't just a fan-service, minigame-ridden, volleyball-infused, T&A bounce fest? These characters were actual fighters, who regularly beat the crap out of each other in a tournament instead of lazing on a beach in a strange pseudo dating sim. When are they going to go back to the series' roots? When will Dead or Alive be a fighting game again? Oh, wait. How about now?

Review: Dead or Alive 5

  • Conclusion: Passing up Dead or Alive 5 could be one of the biggest mistakes you may ever make. Remembering something called “Butt Battle” ( Dead or Alive Extreme 2 ) makes you question what you may actually be purchasing, but that needs to be pushed aside. This game has solid gameplay with highly addicting fighting that will keep you hooked for hours. The poor story mode is a letdown, because it has potential, but it can easily be overlooked in the grand scheme of things.

Dead or Alive 5 Review

  • Excerpt: "Oh my god!" screams Tina as she falls to her feet, pushing her heaving breasts together and panting. As she sweats on the floor, waiting for you to press continue, you have the option to swing the camera around, zoom in and admire the gorgeous character model. This is Dead or Alive 5 in a nutshell. It's taken what used to be a cheeky bonus you could ignore and now forces you to deep throat every sexual innuendo, suggestion and enthusiastic moan.

  • Excerpt: “I’m a fighter.” That phrase is the slogan for the latest entry in Team Ninja’s venerable franchise, Dead or Alive. Those words represent the idea that DOA is no longer an exclusive club solely for hardcore fighting enthusiasts, but rather a piece of “fighting entertainment”, a game for the masses. In Dead or Alive 5 , I’m a fighter; you’re a fighter; we can all be fighters. It’s a simple mantra, one that is as powerful as it is silly.

Dead or Alive 5 Review

  • Excerpt: On first glance, it's hard to take the Dead or Alive (DOA) franchise seriously. On the surface it appears to be a regular fighting game, but its otaku-friendly vibe shows through upon closer inspection. The skimpy clothes, jiggling breasts and general over sexualisation of female characters sometimes overshadowed its fighting roots.

  • Excerpt: What can you really say about Dead or Alive that hasn't been said before? The fighting game series originally made a splash because of its physics... you know what I'm talking about. The kids don't know, but you know. The Dead or Alive ladies, um, "ladies," we'll call them, have bounced and jiggled their way into the fighting game hall of fame, and even inspired some rather insipid spin-offs in the form of beach volleyball simulators, I mean G-rated porn.

Dead or Alive 5 PS3 Review

  • Conclusion: Dead or Alive 5 Image © Tecmo Koei After the fourth game and the awful Hollywood adaptation, most of us assumed that the "Dead or Alive" franchise was over. Proving yet again that you can never count out a beloved series from finding life, "Dead or Alive 5" is one of the most straight-up fun fighting games of the year. The genre may be overcrowded but there's room for one more. Disclosure: A review copy was provided by the publisher.

  • Conclusion: It's a return to the PlayStation for Dead or Alive , but not an especially triumphant one. This is a great looking game that fails to separate itself from a crowded field of fighters and relies a bit too much on a tired gimmick.

  • Excerpt: This is the perfect example of a fighting game that plays it safe every chance it can, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The lack of extra modes and options outside of the basics is a real letdown, and it would have been nice to see the story’s bonus missions given their own separate mode, but the mechanics are still top-notch. Even if you’re new to the series, you’ll find plenty to love about Dead or Alive 5 .
