5.0 out of 5 stars Best Beat 'um' up ever! 26 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Dead or Alive 1 is a must have item for the budding Beat 'um' Up player. The game consists of nine characters in total, whilst you can unlock a bounus of three throughout story mode. Your starter characters consist of:
Bass Armstrong
Gen Fu
Jann Lee
Lei Fang
Ryu Hayabusa
Tina Armstrong
They all have unique abilitys and are a great selection for begginers to the game. The characters which I found easiest were: Kasumi and Ryu Hayabusa. Their powerful special moves provide easy game play throughout. The other 3 bonus characters which you can unlock are:
Extra outfits in Dead or Alive are earned by winning the game with the character you want the extra outfit for at normal difficulty or higher.
You can earn the first few outfits for each character by setting the life bars for you at Highest and your opponent at Smallest and setting the fight count at one.
Once you have gotten all the outfits you can in this mode, the remainder can be gotten by setting the game to default settings (best of 3 rounds, normal life, normal difficulity, normal life bars) to get the rest. Using this trick you should be able to get Kasumi's first 10 outfits, Lei Feng's first 9 outfits, and everyone elses first 5.
Dead or Alive Play as Ayane
To enable Ayane, obtain every costume in the game. 14 for each female, 5 for each male, and 3 for Raidou.
Dead or Alive Play as Raidou
To play the game as Raidou (the last boss), beat the game using the default settings with each character.
The reason why Ayane was made as a secret character is because she is far better than any other characters in the beginning. Her speed and agility are abnormally excellent, her throws take much more damage to the opposing characters as I have tested, she is far the best in the series.
Anyway have fun if you buy this game!

4.0 out of 5 stars I Prefer To Be Alive, If That's OK With You 2 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
# If I, I get to know your name. Well I could trace your private number, baby. All I know is that to me, you look like you're lots of fun. Open up your lovin' arms. I want some... # ...oh...Dead Or Alive, the VIDEO GAME. Sorry, I thought you meant...never mind. I just got, um...confused, that's all. No biggy. (cheeks become beat red through embarrassment)

Tecmo first released Dead Or Alive in arcades in 1996. The beat-'em-up then made its way onto the PSone in 1998. DOA has nine different fighters you can choose to play with. The fighters include US DJ, Zack; Russian hard man, Bayman; and Japanese ninja, Ryu Hayabusa. That last one sound familiar? It's the same Ryu from the Ninja Gaiden games. There are also two hidden fighters you can unlock. It will take a fair amount of work to unlock them, but I'm sure the tough-as-nails gamers wouldn't have it any other way.

Being a 3D fighter, DOA immediately has competition in the form of Tekken 3, which was also released on the PSone in 1998. We have plenty of gaming modes, including Team Battle, Time Attack, Survival and Versus (for 2 Players), but what does this game offer you that Namco's creation doesn't?

Well instead of having two punch and two kick buttons, DOA has a punch (X), a kick (Circle), and a hold button (Square). The hold button can be used to grab a hold of your opponent whilst they're trying to attack you. If you get your timing right you can then use the momentum from that hold and unleash an attack of your own. The hold button can also be used as part of a combo to perform the more powerful, flamboyant moves. Some of the fighters' easier moves are listed in the manual, but for the much harder moves you'll need to practice lots and lots.
