A nice game to pass the time.
4 June 2007
Summary: As has been said below, this game is gorgeous. The girls look great in it and it is quite a nice game that involves mild titliation, materialism and some volleyball. I have to admit, I do not like my games too complicated or too involved, and so this game suits me well. After all, I am the sort of person who still enjoys playing Playgoy The Mansion. At first, I played it obsessively, completing the campaign for the girls that I liked the best.
Summary: Overall a very fun game, if i need to take a break from the more serious games i tend to find myself playing this. Despite the controls being rather simple the Volleyball itself is highly addictive and enjoyable, the Graphics are superb. Expected since the Dead or Alive fighting games have some of the best graphics around. The whole point of the game is to buy gifts for someone you want to team up with, win games, keep them happy and enjoy your 2 week vacation.
Excerpt: I only got this a day or two after my 14th birthday with another game, I found this one pretty good, it is to do with the Dead Or Alive characters... I mean the girl characters, and this new one called Lisa, ill add more info about Lisa furter in my review. This game has a few different functions, theres 1 player mode, which can be Zack Island or Exhibition, Ill say more about this further in the review. Controls The game is 1 - 2 players.
Summary: This is a quirky title that has more in common with the very Japanese style of dating sims rather than a sports game. If you are expecting a serious sports simulation then don't bother. Also if you are looking for titilation then you might get a few hours play out of it if that. Get beneath the glossy surface, and the heart of the game is actually about trying to establish friendship's between your girl, and the other DOA girls.
Summary: This is one of the most gorgeous games, graphics wise, available for Xbox. A lot of effort has been put into making this game look good, it's a shame more effort wasn't put into realising it's full gameplay potential. Despite what the product description says there is No lifeguard drill, dance competition or beauty contest, and there is not a cinema or an arcade, you can see trailers of the Dead or Alive games but these come in the forms of videos sent to your hotel room...
Excerpt: Just as us humans look down on the apes, we European gamers are disgusted with those in Japan. Interactive cartoon pornography, soft-core fighting games and the like seem to be an everyday occurrence in the land of the rising sun. But with games like BMX XXX the tide is turning. So here is the Xbox's first volleyball sim. At the end of Dead or Alive 3 one of the men (the ones you never picked) hit the jackpot at a casino.
Summary: What can I say? Beach Volleyball has all the glamour of those excellently sculpted DOA girls, as well as beautiful graphics and water effects and gorgeous environments. The game itself is strange. You can opt for volleyball against opponents (AI or human with enough controllers) or take part in the adventure(?) mode, which allows you to visit places on the island and purchase extra items like bikinis etc for your player.
Summary: Ok i bought this game the other day and its just what i expected it to be, girls in skimpy bikinis running around with a bit of vollyball thrown in. the controls for the vollyball are easy blue button - pass to your player, red button - hit it over the net to your opponents side, and thats it as far as the vollyball is concerned...
Excerpt: A mio parere, questo gioco lo ritengo quasi esclusivamente per ragazze. Il gioco si basa esclusivamente su un'isola tropicale nella quale si svolge un torneo di beach volley per ragazze bandito dal propietario dell'isola, Zack. All'inizio del gioco, dopo un filmato, si deve scegliere una ragazza da guidare (ovviamente si possono cambiare). Queste ragazze sono circa otto e ognuna ha le sue caratteristiche e gusti personali. Sono fatte graficamente ...
Pros: carino, bella grafica, fa venire voglia d'estate
Summary: Bei dem folgenden Videospiel muss ich mächtig aufpassen, dass ich angesichts der attraktiven Damen, welche die Hauptrolle spielen, nicht in eine bestimmte Ecke gedrängt werde. Obwohl: eigentlich ist mir das ziemlich egal. Sozusagen völlig latte. Ganz neutral gesehen handelt es sich im Fall von "Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball" für die X-Box von Microsoft um ein sehr bemerkenswertes Sportspiel.
Pros: Fantastische Optik (in vielerlei Hinsicht), Mischung aus Beziehungs - Sim, Minispiel und Sportspektakel, Voyeure kommen auf Hochtouren, blitzsaubere Steuerung, 16 : 9 - Format hier besonders wichtig
Cons: Für manche nur eine billige Fleischparade, es hapert (zumindest) vom Gameplay her an der Langzeitmotivation, Kamera nervt zuweilen
