Dead or Alive 5 is the fifth entry in Team Ninja's iconic fighting series, and is designed to evolve the series beyond eye candy status and into the realm of a more broad-based fighting entertainment. Features include, dynamic interactive stages that challenge combatants, diverse gameplay options both online and in local play, realistic and warm graphics, stunning cutscenes, new special moves and a dream lineup of characters.
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.
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.

Now, after 7 years, DOA is back in full force. I've gotten to play other fighting games since then, and ended up loving the SoulCalibur series as an alternative, but was disappointed with Tekken. I like Tekken 3 and a fan of the series and it's characters, but I was disappointed with Tekken 6, and since Tekken Tag Tournament 2 came out within weeks before DOA 5, I had to save my money for the latter.
I haven't been excited for a video game for a long time, so I opted to get the works: DOA 5 Collector's Edition :)
I've been playing it for hours and into days, and I'm in cloud 9. The new game plays like a dream. Team Ninja did a good job with their latest installment, and it seems they listened to fans about concerns from the demo a few months back.
The gameplay is tight and it caters to both rookies and hardcore pros. The best way to describe it is that it's easy to learn, but hard to master, like chess. Yet, it's so enjoyable to play. I'm a casual gamer, and semi-hardcore, at best.Read more ›
The way the fighting mechanic in DOA 5 works is like a rock-paper-scissors style system, strikes beat throw, throws beat holds, and holds beat strikes. This is way the game works, it sounds simple, and in theory it is, but the system goes much deeper than simple rock-paper-scissors when you get into it. You have two attack buttons, one for punches and one for kicks, at first I thought this would be a setback, but when I got to experience it the moves are pretty varied, and I had a blast discovering combos and stringing together moves. The move set in this game is vast, a lot of characters have easily over one hundred moves, a lot of which seem practical and good for mix-ups. Throws are simple, grab a blocking opponent, or predict opponents hold, and punish with a throw, if you guess right you deal bonus counter damage, some characters have special throws , such as wake up and ground throws. Now the way holds work in this game are interesting. Unlike Dimensions where there was a three point system, this one uses(returns to?) a 4 point hold system:mid-punch, mid-kick, high punch/kick, and low punch/kick. I like that aspect a lot, and feel it adds a whole new layer of mind games to the fray. The importance of guessing/reading your opponents strike is critical.Read more ›
After about 10 solid gameplay hours I feel I can give my opinion on this game. While at first I was sort of put off at this game(had to relearn some characters moves and it took me a while to get the hang of playing a VF character in the DOA setting), the more I play it the more I enjoy it.
I really enjoy playing this game online, yes in some matches there is a lot of lag, but a lot of the matches I've had online have been good.
Virtua Fighter characters
the new charging attacks and environmental features
great stat tracking
challenging difficulty levels if you want a challenge
first set of DLC costumes were free
takes a lot of time to unlock the outfits
soundtrack could have been better
some technical issues(freezing, stuttering and sometimes really bad online lag)
additional DLC costumes sets are too expensive
