Summary: I used to love DoA. I played all the games from the first one on up. Admittedly, I am not very good, but with enough practice and determination, I was able to unlock everything in all the other games. I was severely disappointed, in this game.
Summary: i didn't liked the game one bit but since i bought it for my brothers they liked the game as they say its Awesome because of the violence. but for me non of the story lines made sense so if you don't give a damn about the story line and only care about the fighting.
Summary: ive played the 1st and 2nd dead or alive. so when i saw DOA4, i had to pick it up. the good part is the fighting and action is still awesome. the fighters are still hot! (the female fighters). plenty of costumes to unlock.
Summary: The graphics are good, Game play is decent... But there is nothing special about the game... Everyone has played this type of game over and over AND OVER again... Go out and rent this one before dropping the cash....
Summary: In redesigining Dead or Alive for the XBOX 360, Team Ninja seems to have systematically removed any element of fun from the game. By drastically changing the countering system, by increasing the challenge, and by introducing a new boss, somehow they lost that which made the other games enjoyable in...
Summary: Pros + Amazing Graphics. + Fun characters. (Unlockable Master Chief!!!) + Fast-action. Cons - Glitches & collision detection problems. - Online play tends to lag & AI can be difficult. - Unlocking characters & achievements both can tend to be ridiculous.
Summary: The game itself graphically and fluidity of movement is amazing but it's learning curve and difficulty to properly counter moves is very unnerving. In the past games you could stop an opponent's barage quite easily by doing a counter.
Conclusion: Greate fighting game, good array of characters and excellent backdrops. This is a thoroughly entertaining game but probably not worth a £40 price. I will pick it up when the game goes platinum.
