Dead or Alive 5 Review | Edge

Edge: "For all Team Ninja’s talk of keeping it more real, DOA5 is mostly business as usual. There are tweaks to the formula and aesthetic, but nothing too sacrilegious or enticing. It’s disappointing, then, that this has little to offer over its forebear." (Dead or Alive 5, PS3, Xbox 360) 6/10

Disappointing score....
.... but then again, it's Edge. Their reviews/scores are hardly taken serious anymore.

Not that I believe this wil be a great game btw. Team Ninja has been very disappointing with it's output when Yosuke Hayashi took over. With Ninja Gaiden 3 a tragic low.

But back to Edge: You know the reviewer is crap and hasn't done his research, nor knows what he's talking about, when he says Gen Fu is an unlockable character from Virtua Fighter.

"Then there are four Virtua Fighter characters to unlock. The presence of Akira, Sarah, Pai and Gen Fu is jarring,"

It's not just sad that the reviewer made that mistake, but why didn't an editor catch it before sending it out for print!?

Edge have high standards. I respect them for that.

A 6 indicates 'above average'- or at least it does when a gaming site can be bothered to actually criticise big releases.

Edge got exposed.

High standards like not even knowing wtf you are talking about and misplacing a character in another franchise ? In this era of googling no excuse there .

And please the review is a joke , that glaring error aside . There is barely any content inside indicative of why it's even a 6 . It's even worthless if you know nothing about the game and wants actual infos

I just got this game and it's AWESOME.
I'm a long time doa fan though. This may not be the best fighter but it's the BEST 3D fighter so far. (Sorry tekken the "platform effect" killed me)
