Excerpt: Name: Dead or Alive 4 Genre: 1-2 Type: Fighting System: Xbox 360 There are some game series that should have stopped years ago; games that people continue to buy, regardless of the quality, out of a sense of nostalgia or optimism.
Excerpt: The latest installment in Tecmo’s Xbox-exclusive series showcases the 360’s graphics capabilities better than just about any other launch title. It’s also the only fighter on the system at the moment, so if that’s your genre you’ll obviously be interested to know if it’s any good.
Excerpt: Dead or Alive is one of the most contentious franchises around: Gamers and non-gamers alike tend to either hate it or love it. But don't let the viscous breasts and panty-flashes overcome the quality fighter that is DOA. The series makes its next-gen debut on the Xbox 360, and it's a mixed bag: The graphics aren't going to prompt anyone to upgrade to HDTV, but the fighting game is at its height.
Pros: ups: Solid gameplay; good additions; consistent with previous games.
Conclusion: At times almost perfect but at other times a sloppy mess. The online mode is better than DOA Ultimate but Team Ninja still needs to iron out the lagging creases. If you can find a good connection, then great. If not, you�ll just have to learn how to combo in slow mo.
