Summary: I have been playing this series since DOA3, and I remember when DOA4 came out. It was said to be the very end of DOA itself as a series. So this possibility was rather... disappointing, and when the Original Creator Tomonobu Itagaki left the possibility of there being another DOA seemed to be unlikely. But then, DOA made it's come back with DOAP, DOAD, and now DOA5 itself. It came out almost 7 years after the DOA4 release.
Summary: it an alright game but it just isnt the same as the other 4 games in the series that i like. the story mode is ten times different because its filled with more cutscenes and diologue than actual fights which takes away the fun for me but other than that the gameplay is awesome and easy to learn.
Summary: Created an account just to write a review for this. This game is A-MAY-ZING !! From graphics to gameplay, it's a huge step up from DOA 4. This game is perfect for casual and hardcore gamers alike. Pick this up you WILL NOT be disappointed.
