Summary: Worked my way up a ladder of fighting games, this being my latest (new genre for me) and if it ain't one of the toughest. Soul Calibur presented it's own challenges to master, MK9: good warm up and practice. But Dead or Alive doesn't give you many second chances if you miss a block or combo. Can be frustrating but always relied upon for something difficult and rewarding. Seller was awesome no complaints whatsoever. Timely, neat. Good'n good'n!
Summary: I got this for my sister, who just got out of he hospital. She loves the dead or alive line of games and wanted this one for her graduation present. I decided to not make her wait and got it a little after her birthday. It took a while to get here but she was excited to receive it before June. She said its a little different than playing the Ps2 or Ps3 version but she likes it none the less.
Summary: This is not a game for the weak-hearted: this serves as a blessing and curse. I fully admit that I like challenges: I find it annoying to breeze through a game without even breaking a sweat. I am not a video game professional or anything like that, I just like the feeling of accomplishment by working hard to overcome something.
Summary: this is a good fighting game just like a lot of the other I have played the formate reminds me a lot like street fighter. just to people fighting in deiffenrt areas with differnt backgrounds to fight in. so is you like street fighter then you love this game.
Summary: Don't wast your money on this game. Get Dead or Alive 3. This game doesn't have an easy mode and normal might as well be extra hard. You'll get spun around, knocked down, and KO'ed by the first opponent before you even have a chance to attempt a combo. It will make you pull your hair out and want to chuck the controller into the TV. And it never get's better. You can't excel at this game.
Summary: While this is a tricky game to master, on the default settings. I've found that its using the normal Xbox 360 controllers are the reason why people find this game lacking. So therefor using an arcade-style stick such as Hori's Xbox360 Fighting Stick EX 2 will improve your game.
The most frustrating fighting game available for the Xbox 360

Summary: I love a lot of different fighting games, from the 2-d/Street Fighter, Last Blade, Samurai Showdown arcade fighters, to boxing games (Fight Night, Punch Out!, Victorious Boxers), Bushido Blade, Soul Calibur, Virtua Fighter, you name it... I've always given the DoA games a chance because of the incredible visuals and smooth combat, and have had fun with some of the earlier games in the series (despite the simplistic rock, paper, scissors fighting mechanics).
Summary: the DOA series has always been my favorite game series of all time. My brother in law finally got a 360 and I had the game already for when I got mine, so I decided to try it out. All I could say was "wow" Everyone is faster, more complex moveset, better countering system, and amazing graphics. They removed a lot of the landing of moves, for instance, if someone is high in the air, you can still do Ayane's back+punch down+kick and it'll land, which is AWESOME!!
