Summary: Don't get me wrong, I like Dead or Alive fighting games. But this latest one is like playing DOA 3 only difference is that they have two new characters. Then some the endings of some characters are weak and wacky. But over all game is good and fun.
Summary: I was a fan of DOA when it first came out and had been playing the each version as they had come to light. It's a good, solid fighter with a decent list of moves for each character allowing a good mixup of attacks to keep your opponents on their toes. The reversal system (which I feel was this series' major point, aside from the female "enhancements") seems a little harder to pull off than previous incarnations, but still keeps this from being a simple button mashing...
Summary: Was one of the best fighting games when it launched 5 years ago (2005), and is still one of the best. This was one of Team Ninja's masterpieces, the same game developing company behind Ninja Gaiden. Alot of bang for your buck here !!
Summary: Dead or Alive 4 is a fighting game in which you can unlock hidden characters, costumes, and achievement points to add to your gamerscore. This game features many story modes for each character, sparring or training mode, survival mode, movie section, and local or xbox live online play. The combos are challenging, but once you get the combos down at the right pace, there isn't anything that can stop you.
Summary: I was excited to purchase this, especially after I found out you could unlock Spartan-458 from the Halo series! However, this game can be extremely difficult on any difficulty setting you choose. The final boss almost knows your every move. Counters are sort of hard to pull off, but extremely effective when they work. They can work for you or against you, but for the most part, the latter of the two. The game is beautiful and not very boring.
Summary: Overall My impression of Dead or Alive 4 for the Xbox 360 is positive. The visuals are stunning, the sound design is great and the variety in character (and costume) design is well thought out. I do have a problem with the game, though. First, the AI is incredibly smart. Almost too smart. They always know what I'm going to do as soon as I press a button and counter every time.
Conclusion: a great fighting game and a big improvement over Dead or alive 3. this game has loads of different style fighters for you to get to grips with and a decent fighting system. thers some good secret characters to unlock and lots of extra costumes to get. online this game is great and when it doesnt lag you will have hours of fun. deffinately worth a purchase if you love beat em ups.
Conclusion: Beautiful game, but it's painfully flawed. First let me say that I've been playing fighting games since the beginning. I've won tournaments in everything from SF2 to Tekken Tag...so I'm not coming from a background where I don't understand fighting games. GRAPHICS: This game is possibly one of the best looking games I've ever played, period. It's definitely a game that shows off what the Xbox360 can do. Every detail must be admired.
