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

  • 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

A little family history on the DOA franchise. My father and I first played DOA on the PSone. I was looking for a fighting game since I normally play RPG and racing games. When we played DOA, it was love at first sight. Ever since then, we bought game systems just to play versions of DOA. The only one we didn't have was DOA 4, since we bought PS3 for the bluray, but even then, we were contemplating on getting the Xbox 360, yet were fortunate to get a copy of DOA4 from a friend, just to collect. My father passed away 2 years ago, so he never played Dimensions and DOA 5. In his honor, I bought a 3DS just for DOA:D.

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.

First off let me start by saying that I am an avid fighting game fan, but fairly new to the DOA series, the only DOA game I have played before this one is DOA:Dimensions, which got me interested in the series. After playing Dead or Alive 5 for a while, I can say that I don't regret buying it one bit. DOA 5 is an enjoyable fighting game that offers a unique gameplay experience that is a nice change of pace from other fighting games. I'll break this down into sections and try to explain my thoughts on each feature.

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.

I am a huge fan of DOA and have been for over a decade.

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.

improved graphics
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

While the visual details and characters are still entertaining and fun to play in battle the game is pretty mush what DOA games are which is two person fighting game.While you'll have the usual story mode or basic fight mode and online mode there's really not much more to the game itself. Still I put this series far above some other series like Mortal Kombat or Virtual Fighter. The biggest difference you'll see is the stunning graphics of the game,while DOA4 was beautiful DOA5 has surpassed that which is understandable really considering when DOA4 came out.Also a nice touch is the ability to switch the voice audio between either the English voice cast or Japanese voice cast depending on your preference though sadly unlike DOA4 this one will not have the character story endings which is a little sad. So if you're fan of series like Tekken,Street Fighter or just like fighting games here's a good choice to add to your gaming collection....
