Dead or Alive 5 Review | GamingTrend

GamingTrend writes:

"There is no doubt that fighting games shaped my childhood. Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Virtua Fighter, Killer Instinct, Darkstalkers, and many more pulled every quarter I had directly out of my pocket and delivered pure entertainment. Tomonobu Itagaki jumped into that pool in 1996 and gave us the first Dead or Alive game. Known for eye-popping boobs and scantily clad women paired off against behemoth muscle men, the game was fast paced, 3D, and focused on countering, combinations, air juggles, and the ability to tag in another fighter in impressive bouts that required a lot more than button mashing. The game was a hit and has spawned 16 direct and indirect sequels, an “Xtreme Beach Volleyball” offshoot, and even a fairly terrible movie. Even though Itagaki may have headed off to forge his own path, Team Ninja is alive and well – it’s time to see if they still remember what makes the DOA series so great." (Dead or Alive 5, PS3, Xbox 360) 83/100
