    So I think DoA is very ambitious and does every thing right, that I wish it was an all new non rehashed Tekken. The story mode was very good and entertaining (Fighting Entertainment... Will touch on t...

    Dead or Alive 5 seems to play it to safe by not offering much of a change from a winning formula.

    People's little gripes with the game don't stack up against how far this series has come.

    Rated on October 10, 2012 by Metroididiot

    Fighting games just keep going down hill.

    Rated on March 07, 2013 by timbers_WSU

    Less then a month and this is in the bargain bin for $29. And it isn't worth it. Small cast of fighters first of all. And not much has changed from the original cast. The female fighters are still fun...
