Officially the most broken fighting game i've ever encountered which charges £5 for 3-4 costumes that other players cannot see unless they own the DLC themselves...

I wouldn't call a game broken because of that. Sure, it's awkward you don't see the same thing the other player sees. That doesn't mean it's broken by any means.

The actual fighting system is broken to f*ck. Moves which force tech standup and leave you open to combos which are easily recycled when it breaks down, ground grabs which can't be broken which give Mila, Tina, Bass and Bayman free damage on untechable knockdowns. Staggers/stuns which can't be shaken so you can't block 90% of the time if you get hit by a move that isn't a natural combo etc etc

I could go on and thats just scraping the surface. Don't get me wrong, its fun to some extent until you encounter players who consistenly use all of the above gimmicks. As far as a balanced fighter goes, DOA5 is far, far behind anything else, even SC5 and thats saying something.

But with the DLC, most people buy costmes as they want them to be seen by others online, defeats the object.

Agreed, the game itself isn't broken. Just the DLC practices, which are horrid for it. I plan on picking this up soon, but they are just wrecking people's wallets with this unfairly priced DLC.

@caseh I suppose if I ever encountered those problems I'd feel the same way, But I haven't and I've played around 500 online matches. I think the game is quite balanced and easy to pick up. Which I can't say about most fighters. All in all I've enjoyed my time with DoA 5 and the costume DLC doesn't bother me one bit.

Game could be better, still the triangle system allows to counter most situations in some way or another, so I wouldn't call the game broken at all. I prefer DOA a million times better than TTT2's 1 minute long touch of death combos, that's boring and infuriating as f*ck.

The game is hardly broken . Neither was SC5 as you hint , even if not the most balanced game , for certain .

Problematic characters were for the most part nerfed in sc5 with the patches , some others boosted , and it was mostly cries from people not willing to learn match ups to begin with .

As for DOA 5 given how important and vital it is for the grabbers , i'm ok with free grabs on untechable ko's . Their usual throws are seen miles afar and easily broken .

As for the stun/staggers states , asides from stuff like limbo stun, sit down stun you can still reduce stun times and counter

This will sell. Really it will.

I can see this pack would work if it were the girls wearing only shorts and gloves. But the guys? hhmm I doubt it.
What they are wearing reminds me the beginning of the movie Enter the Dragon. Where Bruce lee faces Sammo Hung in a friendly fight.

I'm gonna pass on this DLC. No women outfits.
