As has always been the way with fighting games since the 90s, it’s normal to see several revisions over the course of an iteration’s lifespan. Street Fighter’s done it, Mortal Kombat has done it, and now Tecmo’s Dead or Alive 5 appears to be the latest series to adopt this direction.
The self-proclaimed Ultimate Edition of DOA5 has recently hit stores. Is it a shameless cash grab or is it worth making the upgrade?
The Story Mode included in this Ultimate edition is completely unchanged from the previous versions of DOA5. After the bioweapon clone of Kasumi, Alpha-152, went on a rampage and destroyed DOATEC’s public image in previous games, boss Helena has been trying desperately to rebuild the company and restore the company’s ailing reputation. -
