StickSkills said, "Dead or Alive 5 Plus on the PlayStation Vita isn’t anything fancy. Owners of its console companion won’t be greeted with a slew of new portable features that can only be achieved using the Vita’s unique technology, and while additions exist, this is essentially last year’s console game on a new, smaller screen. However, that may be the greatest compliment I can pay Team Ninja and Tecmo Koei’s latest entry in its staple fighting series. Dead or Alive 5 was a beautiful, content-rich Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game back in 2012, and this on-the-go re-release manages to pack every bit of that gratifying, gut-punching insanity onto what is a less powerful system. Nothing is lost in translation and for those yet to experience the crisp gameplay Dead or Alive 5 has to offer, Plus is a wonderful reason to jump in."
