The fifth installment in the Dead or Alive series brings over twenty playable fighters, featuring all the most recognizable ones. For example, the game includes Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden), two beautiful female ninjas called Kasumi and Ayane, a wrestler called Tina, crazy Zack and several new fighters.


As usual, the combat system in Dead or Alive 5 for X360 and PS3 is an incredibly dynamic combination of playing aggressively and having to intercept enemy attacks directed on particular sections of the body: the upper, the lower and the middle one. Fighting is amazingly dynamic here and the visuals are fantastic. The game features female breast physics, which is a hallmark of the entire franchise.

In accordance with the previous installments, the creators decided to implement multi-floored arenas allowing to drop the enemy deep into the abyss or just fall down stairs. The arenas are filled with objects which can be destroyed during fights.

Dead or Alive 5 for X360 and PS3 offers over a dozen game modes, including those designed for online competition. The single-player mode features elements of the plot and a boss at the end. The player can unlock at least several outfits for a single character. Thus even those preferring a solitary gaming experience will appreciate Dead or Alive 5.
