Summary: If you are a fan of dead or alive, or just a fighting game fan, you will enjoy this game. There are a variety of characters to choose from, some of which you have to unlock. You will fight in interactive worlds and it even includes an online fighting play if you subscribe to xbox live. It brings back some of the classic dead or alive characters(Helena, Hitomi, Kasumi, Ayane, Hayate/Ein, Leifang, Hayabusa, Zach, Alpha and more!
Summary: This game is too freaking difficult. I played this for an hour and 23 minutes. I nearly had a fatal aneurysm. This AI of the game is cheap and cheat. 9/10 when I performed a throw move, halfway through it I was "counter blow". Every attack I've done I got destroyed in 3.2981 seconds. On stage 1 I was thrashed beyond belief. No fight on normal difficulty should make you want to destroy everything near you on the VERY FIRST FIGHT.
Summary: In my opinion Dead or Alive is arguably the best fighting game series created. I believe it is on par with Street Fighter. The characters are likable, the combat is terrific, and not to hard to pick up. For fighting game enthusiasts I believe this is a must.
Summary: The first 7th generation fighting game, DOA4 is not only a very solid game in just the fighting mechanics, but also offers a complete package which even some fighting games lack today. The gameplay is very easy to pick up and understand without the need for a tutorial, yet it is difficult to master. The controls are excellent and combat not only looks cinematic but plays fast and fluent too.
Summary: Dead or alive 4 is, like the title implies, the forth installment in the Dead or Alive series. Dead or Alive is similar to Virtua Fighter, Tekken, and any other 3D arena fighter that doesn't have weapons or let you fly around throwing fireball. You must learn combos and how to properly "catch" your opponents moves. It's an astounding game with a big touch of Japanese influence. All the characters speak Japanese and all the girls are extremely attractive.
