Dead or Alive 5 Review | The Game Scouts

Tin Salamunic: When Dead or Alive made its debut in 1996, it captivated fighting fans with a newly introduced countering system and unique environmental “Danger Zones.” As the series grew, so did the breasts of the female fighters and it became synonymous with the jiggle factor rather than the innovation it brought to the genre. The franchise carried its prestigious fighting mechanics from one sequel to the next, but it was always inches behind fighting veterans like Street Fighter and Tekken. With its fifth installment, the series proves once again that beyond the thick layers of eroticism lies a beautifully complex fighter with a ton of depth and diversity. (Dead or Alive 5, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.0/10
