Aaron of Bago Games reviews Dead Or Alive 5: While not a groundbreaking game, Dead Or Alive 5 is a very solid title. It might not add in too many new mechanics, but it refines all the important ones to create a better fighter. If the netcode was a little more stable, Dead Or Alive 5 would be even better. It is a fighter that anyone can get into, and while it may leave much to be desired from hardcore fighting fans, Dead Or Alive 5 is just flat out fun. Team Ninja stated that they want this game to be classified as fighting entertainment, and they succeeded. Hopefully they keep the momentum going forward, and offer something that is truly revolutionary in the future.
