gamrReview: "Seven years is a long time in gaming. In the fighting game community, it’s almost an eternity. In the time since Team Ninja’s 2005 release of Dead or Alive 4, the fighting genre has seen a huge resurgence. With heavy hitters such as Super Street Fighter IV, Mortal Kombat, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and SoulCalibur V on the market, can Dead or Alive 5 stand out after such a long absence from the fighting game scene? If my hands-on time with the game at this year’s E3 is any indication, then the answer is an enthusiastic yes."
