Summary: my copy of the game was great condition. but the game failed to say that it was from japan so the DLCs did not upload on my American Vita which was very disappointing. the game itself was amazing. I play it anytime i have a few minutes of freetime off of work which isnt very often. the costumes make you want to play the game over and over again.
Summary: This is a great collectors version with a nice book and metal box case. Unfornately, this is a U.K. Version so you cannot use US downloadable content or download the include costumes for any registered user in the United States. Registration code is invalid in the US.
Summary: The Dead Or Alive series is still alive and kicking, as proven by this fifth iteration. So what's new since DOA 4? Aside from polished-up character models and backrounds, there are a couple of things. The "Cliffhanger" mechanic allows you to knock an opponent off the side of the stage and leave them hanging...you can then attack while rushing forward and attempt to do further damage (but be wary, it can be countered).
Summary: the game feels wonderful the controls are smooth, ad the new graphics are wonderful to look at. with dirt water and s sweat now showing the fights feel more real after someone wins, the new story mode is nice nd helpful in some ways, but it isnt as fullfilling as indivual endings for each character. I also miss the small objects in stages like rails or tables that you could bounce your opponent over and jump over them after with a sweet combo.
The babe heavy fighting game series returns to the PS3. A good title for casual fighting game fans.

Excerpt: Playstation 3 lovers of boobies rejoice! After a twelve-year absence, the lovely ladies of Dead or Alive are back on a Sony console. Ever since DOA 3 the titillating fighting game series has been an Xbox exclusive, but all that has changed with this fifth installment. DOA 5 is a multi-system release and also marks the start of a new era as franchise creator Tomonobu Itagaki was not involved in the project.
Worth a buy for fighting game beginners and vets alike

Summary: I love the gameplay and the complexity you can get when emerging yourself in the fighting mechanics. Only gripe i haven with the game is that I would have loved to have more game modes and more characters to unlock instead of mainly costumes.. But overall a buy well worth it for people who enjoy fighting games, beginners and long timers alike. The game really shines when played with your buds.
