Summary: Single player in this game lacks an easy mode, so for the casual gamer, it might be somewhat of a challenge. But because of this factor, it helps develop the mechanical skills used in the game. Some veterans might find some slight difficulty at first, but should get the hang of things after a few goes. Definitely not a "button mash" game here.
Summary: Gameplay: 8/10 I was really disappointing when there was not even an Easy mode. And before anyone says "You just suck at the game" I can easily play True Fighter mode on Dead or Alive Dimensions for the 3DS. The CPU will always kick your butt unless with aLOT of trial and practice. It is VERY fun with more people and it is a great game to have when playing with friends. Story: 4/10 I already know the story before buying the game and I thought it was fantastic.
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: DOA4 is the last doa fighting game released after the main producer guy (Itakagi) left Team Ninja (the developers of this game). This game is one of the most realistic fighting games out there. People who are complaining about it's "too hard", "the computer pulls of too many combos" blah blah blah blah are gamers who don't like to dedicate some time into a game. You gotta remember if the AI can do it, you can do it too.
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 !!
Not Without Its Flaws, But A Worthy Buy For Any 3D Fighting Fans

Summary: This review has been a long time coming for me... Perhaps vestigially, I have to state that I've had this title longer than any other 360 game I own... Rather than make this review easier however, it's only made it more difficult, as my opinion of it has changed after playing a greater deal of fighters this gen...
