My first DOA,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead or Alive 5 - Collector's Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
This is the first time I've bought dead or alive for a console (previously played in arcades)
I wasn't sure what to expect from DOA5 but in this collector's edition came in a nice quality steel case which included a hardback art book which is definitely high quality and matches up to those of Mortal Kombat 9 and Tekken Tag tournament 2. Also in the box there's a DOA5 I', a fighter poster along with download code of costumes for the lady fighters of the game and the a music CD which includes music from the game and last but not least the actual software which is boxed exactly as the standard edition i.e. no special cover or steel book case which was disappointing.
The game itself is quite easy to pick up and includes lots of different modes;
Online mode - Simple match, lobby match, ranked match.
The graphics are 10/10 they match up to any fighting games from recent times (MK9 + TTT2). The actual fighting is smooth and combos are easy to pull off, though one downfall currently is that there is a lag (once) in almost every match offline or online so hopefully this can be sorted by a patch repair download.
There are many characters to choose from all with unique moves and styles which varies the fighting styles. The game allows you to choose various courses (difficulty) to allow you to challenge yourself to your relevant skill level.
The fight stages are awesome and very detailed and some have activation zones where you can damage your opponent using the environment (way better than what TTT2 offers).
Overall I would recommend this game especially if you are in to your fighting games.
