The Fighting Game as Entertainment

DOA5 stages are more than spectacular visual backdrops, instead playing to a fighter's strengths. As a fight progresses, the backdrop will change and interact with players. Skilled fighters will be able to utilize these dynamic stages to pit their opponents against fresh obstacles to create a new fighting experience. This fusion of combat and dynamically changing backdrops is a formula for the evolution of fighting games as "Fighting Entertainment."

Lifelike, Sensual Detail

With a sensual yet realistic style, Dead or Alive 5 characters are rendered in incredibly lifelike detail. From smooth, lithe muscles to emotive facial expressions, every character comes to life. Characters can even perspire as they fight, with realistic depiction of wet skin, damp hair, and moist, semi-translucent clothing as the match progresses.

Gameplay Variety

Along with a rich array of single player modes including story mode, DOA5 offers new online options with arcade-style matches, tournaments, and social features. Players can be paired into one-off matches or work their way up the leaderboards for the honor and prestige of competing with players from around the world for top spot on leaderboards.

Unique Characters and Fighting Styles

No longer content to be eye candy with a deadly kick, the female fighters of Dead or Alive 5 show a whole new level of character and style. The unique style of each fighter, both male and female, will be accentuated by their individual personalities as they battle with a new look and feel for an intense new generation of Dead or Alive combat.

Key Game Features

  • Intense DOA Fighting - DOA5 expands the signature fighting style for which the series is known with a variety of new martial arts techniques and styles
  • Realistic and Sensual Graphics - Characters come alive with a new visual style combining stunning realism with a warm, naturalistic feel that conveys every facet of each character-from raw power to sleek sensuality
  • Dream Lineup - Play as Ryu Hayabusa, Hayate, Ayane, Kasumi, and Hitomi as well as numerous additional characters yet to be announced
  • Interactive Blockbuster Stages - More than a backdrop, spectacular locations from around the world provide a changing and interactive showcase for deadly battles
  • New Special Moves - Use power blows to interactively trigger the Danger Zone of a stage, including crashing cars, collapsing glaciers, and an exploding oil rig-distract your opponent or drive him into danger
  • Online Battles - A full-fledged online experience awaits players that allows for both beginners and experts to compete head to head in a variety of playing fields and battle modes

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead or Alive returns fighting for the masses. October 2, 2012
By Sono
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Dead or Alive is one of those series that hasn't been taken seriously because of the beach volleyball spin off and its boob-physics. Looking beyond that however it is a quality fighting game that is simple to pickup and improve at.

The good:
-Easy learning curve. You punch, you kick, you throw (grapple), you block, and you hold (counter). Most of the combos are really simple; a series of punches and kicks, sometimes with directional movement but otherwise it's very straight forward. Combos are short (under 15 hits) and do not require hours of grinding to master. The fighting modes for DoA5 are arcade, time attack, and survival and there are 7 difficulties ranging from very easy to normal to champ to master, Tecmo kept the bar low to introduce players into the franchise while at the same time keeping the seasoned DoA players challenged.

-The fighting. Tecmo's rock, paper, scissors method to fighting as always been prevalent in the DoA series but this time its a selling point (ignoring the sexualized female characters). Punches/kicks will beat throws, throws will beat blocking and counter holds, and blocking and counter holds will beat punches. There is always a risk to each action you take and there isn't a sure way to win like other fighting game series (Marvel vs Capcom 3, Street Fighter 4). Tecmo makes the risk really prevalent with this rock, paper, and scissors design because a misread will lead to more damage. For example, a throw that is used on a block will deal x amount of damage but a throw used on a counter hold will deal 1.5x damage. Dead or Alive 5 does not have any unblockable/inescapable setups that other games find as a key to win a fight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Longtime fan, not impressed October 19, 2012
By Kage
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The good:

- The graphics are really nicely done.

- The JPN voice actors sound fabulous.

- There's a nice long difficulty ramp for all players (Rookie to Legend)

- Counters are toned down a bit, so Bass can't kill you in 3 shots now.

Most of my issues have been covered, so I'll just say a few things. As a longtime fan (from DOA2 onward), here are my issues:

-Story mode is not individual characters anymore, but a giant piecemeal map where you have to play certain characters at certain times. Nothing worse than having to face Alpha with one of my worst characters.

- They tried to balance out the characters, but Rig is tooled pretty high (some of his counters are worse than Bass') and Pai is tooled pretty low (death by 1000 cuts, if she lasts that long)

- They messed with the counter system window again. I have no problems getting counters with any of the new characters (perfect ones with Rig right off the bat and Sarah, too), but the older ones give me a few issues (even Lei Fang). Not sure what's up with that and if it's linked to some frame change.

- The AI for the difficulty levels seems to occasionally forget what level they are supposed to be. I had almost no issues with "True Champ", but Hard kicked my butt for a bit. Though, the computer certainly remembers when you pick, "did you touch a button? Counter! Juggle! Downstrike!" Whoops, I mean, "Legendary".

- No Ein!

I like the game, but had I known beforehand how much of it had changed and how many of the small changes were annoying, I'd have probably waited until it dropped to about $35 before picking it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars SOLID entry into the series but.. November 30, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am making a short review.. I LOVE the DOA series as a whole. It's great that there's still a non weapon based combat game. Rarer to find a straight up fighting game.

The graphics are incredible.. the stories are still silly.. But as with Ninja Gaiden 3 this game feels rushed and missing the steady hand of series godfather Itagaki.

The new story mode, similar to Soul Calibur V and Mortal Kombat you play several missions as varying characters tying a larger story together.

Honestly I much would have preferred more clear cut individual stories/campaigns for each character. I will say though DOA is still one of the best pick'em up and play fighting games.. the graphics are great, and the fx are really good. And even though they do emphasize too much on the "boob physics" if you really want to dig into all of the counters, and reversals the game can get pretty dense and strategic, while at the same time its a good casual button mashing fighting game. There's no big customization ala Soul Calibur V. But its still a fun time..

5.0 out of 5 stars Xbox version is 10x better March 5, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
I bought the PS3 version when this game came out, I was not impressed with the control scheme and fluidness of the character controls. I decided to give another try and the Xbox version does not disappoint, plus it is much cheaper in price now, I paid $19.99 opposed to the whopping $ 59.99 when it first came out. This review is solely based upon which version is better. The graphics for the Xbox are about the same as the PS3.
