If you land a good hit into an environmental hazard, you can shave a lot of health off your opponent's life-meter!

 

Props to the winner, by the way! Good matches!

Dead or alive is a great series, it's biggest downfall is that the game hasn't really evolved since the 2nd game.

Yeah, I see what you mean. To be fair, it is difficult to evolve any 3D Fighting Game, into something brand new or fresh.

 

Tecmo found a gameplay formula for DOA that worked, and they stuck with it since then, for better of worse.

 

The environmental hazards aren't 100% new, either: they are a more stylish evolution of the exploding "danger zone" hazards (the ground & walls) from the first few DOA games.
